Couch Slut Streams New Track “Funeral Dyke”

Gilead Media just announced the July 28th release of “Contempt,” the second album by Couch Slut. Pre-orders are online here and the first track can be heard below.

From Brooklyn, New York, Couch Slut shook the underground in 2014 with the release of debut, “My Life as a Woman.” New album “Contempt” carries on with Couch Slut’s savagery and intelligence both in full effect.

Opening track “Funeral Dyke” sets the tone, with a skronking saxophone buried under a grimy, blackened, noise-rock blitz. Later in the song, a tambourine rattles along happily with the beat as vocalist Megan Osztrosits screams, “I will fuck you, now you’re dirt!”

Migration Festival 2016 Details Announced

20 Buck Spin and Gilead Media will join forces in Summer 2016 to present the inaugural Migration Festival in Olympia, Washington. Jointly conceived by the two labels, Migration Fest will primarily showcase bands from each label’s roster, as well as select other affiliated and respected artists.

The festival is set to take place at the historic Capitol Theater in downtown Olympia on August 12th, 13th, and 14th. Confirmed bands include Auroch, The Body & Krieg collaborative performance, Christian Mistress, Dead To A Dying World, False, Fórn, Full Of Hell, Khemmis, Kowloon Walled City, Krallice, Mutilation Rites, Nightfell, Obsequiae, Pale Chalice, Thou, Vastum, Vhol, And Yellow Eyes.

Approximately six additional bands, including some headliners, will be announced later. There will also be separate after-shows to occur at a smaller local venue. Ticket information, including price and on-sale date, will be announced in the near future.

20 Buck Spin founder David Adelson comments: “I’d heard Adam (Bartlett, Gilead Media boss) was thinking of coming West to do the next iteration of Gilead Fest. I’d been thinking of doing something similar myself for years but never had, and so suggested we join up and do something together. Adam was immediately receptive and the idea for Migration Festival was born right then. Olympia felt right since I’m already based here, and because of its small size and walkability this is a great place to have it, both for locals, and for out-of-towers.

Says Adam Bartlett, “After two successful installments of my own Gilead Fest in this small Wisconsin town it seemed like the time was right to branch out and try something different. The idea to work with Dave and his label on a collaborative event makes perfect sense given our similar music backgrounds and diverse, but complimentary label families. And Olympia serves as the perfect central location for this type of festival.”

Alraune Finishes New Album “The Process Of Self-Immolation”

Alraune has completed work on an upcoming debut album, and Profound Lore Records comments on the band:

“Nashville, Tennessee black metal band Alrlaune has created a small buzz in their short existence through a few released demo tracks that have circulated online over the last year or so along with their recently released two-track cassette on Graceless Recordings.

“The people who would immerse themselves within these handful of tracks got a mere glimpse into the musically progressive dissonant occult black metal chaos that Alraune unleashed, some even proclaiming Alraune to be the next most promising prospect with the American black metal underground.

“With their debut album ‘The Process Of Self-Immolation,’ it will be evident that Alraune will be recognized as one of the most devastating new black metal bands today. ‘The Process Of Self-Immolation’ shall easily solidify such a claim upon immersion, an album which unleashes a striking display of visceral, twisted, and hateful portrayal of time-stretching black metal.

“The compositions within are complex and overwhelming yet maintain that tangibility through the band’s sense of real songwriting through this sonically melancholic and harsh soundscape.”

To be released on CD/digital formats on June 24th through Profound Lore and on vinyl shortly after in July via Gilead Media, the track listing for “The Process Of Self-Immolation” goes as follows:

1. Prelude
2. Exordium
3. Simulacra
4. Kissed By The Red
5. The Process Of Self-Immolation
