Colorado punk rockers The Vanilla Milkshakes pay tribute to Troma

David McGhee, who is the band's frontman recalls that his earliest horror movies were Killer Klowns From Outer Space and Return of the Living Dead both of which had the added effect of planting the punk-rock seed as he was growing up.

In 2021 The Vanilla Milkshakes paid tribute to Troma by creating a theme song to honour movies created by the independent production company, so if you are a fan of those films then this is for you.

The track sees David and his band unleash fast paced guitar riffs and energetic beats that flow alongside quirky lyrics that commemorate the films produced by Troma.

Lossline are releasing a new 5 track EP titled One Of Us Was Building An Empire

Lossline, a Manchester based song writing duo are following on from the success of their previous album Fading Affect Bias with a louder, more energised approach to writing and recording.

Their forthcoming EP sees Lossline begin with the delightful and mellow track 'A Telephone Call' before transitioning to  'Case History', which has more of a dreamier feel to it in places despite the sombre lyrics.

'This Room Smells Of Smoke' has a haunting feel to it with its stripped back vocals and gentle melodies but the track shifts into a more energetic mood towards its conclusion.

'I Worry About My Health And Caffeine Intake' sees Lossline go all out with upbeat instrumentals and sublime vocal harmonies, this is without a doubt my favourite track from the EP and it's easy to see why this was the first single released from 'One Of Us Was Building An Empire'.

It Takes A Village concludes the EP with the gentle tones of the piano and calming vocals.

The 5 track EP showcases both sides of their sound, from quiet reflective piano driven songs that highlight their folk influences to loud, distorted guitar anthems. 

Although the sonic landscape changes track to track the emotion carried through their well crafted lyrics remains the same. 

Lossline cover deep personal topics and topics felt collectively by wider society with confidence and this is evident in their carefully crafted lyrics.

Track list

1. A Telephone Call
2. Case History
3. This Room Smells Of Smoke
4. I Worry About My Health And Caffeine Intake
5. It Takes A Village

One Of Us Was Building An Empire will be released on the first of October on all major streaming services.

From “Slutterhouse” frontman to explosive rock artist, fashion model and professor

After the discreet release of four singles in 2020 (Crazy Train, Without a Doubt, Young Love, and World Gone Mad), Grave Jones heralds the release of his first album Heartrage Hotel (Jan 2022) with its explosive lead single Smithereens.

A man of the world, Jones pulls inspiration from his time in academia as a philosopher and writer, in entertainment as a rock star and model, and in adventures that have taken him from his native Lebanon through Paris, Stockholm, Milan and beyond. Between the glamour of turning scuffles with The Libertines into backstage jams, and rubbing shoulder with the likes of Kate Moss, Scarlett Johansson, and Milla Jovovich, and the introspective stretches that see Jones weave his rich and deep experiences into art, Grave Jones captures music quite unlike anything else.

Like its namesake, Smithereens is loud and unapologetic. Heavily distorted guitars pave the way for Grave’s gravelled, textured voice that cries with the raw honesty of a singer reminiscing on anger pointed inward and out.

Combining the heavy guitar riffs that scored Jones’ youth with catchy melodies and contemporary-inspired electronic production, Smithereens captures a sound that transcends any setting or period.

Grave Jones and the Heartrage Hotel album mark Salloum’s long-awaited return to the scene following the rousing success of his previous musical project Slutterhouse that saw him share the stage with the likes of the Klaxons, Sleigh Bells, and Super Furry Animals and working with legendary producers Eric Chedeville (Daft Punk, Sebastien Tellier, Charlotte Gainsbourg) and Dimitri Tikovoi (Placebo, Nick Cave, Kill the Young).

After the band’s success playing festivals across the world like Liverpool Sound City, Dubai Sound City, Stockholm Fashion week, and landing sync details across MTV 2 and EA Sports 2, the band split as Salloum left the music world ahead of his triumphant return almost a decade on.

Nashville Musician Rockin' Rich Lynch Aims to Become "The Talk of the Town" with Latest Timely Track from Music City

Nashville based musician Rockin Rich Lynch ( is aiming to become "The Talk of the Town" and then some on the strength of his latest Music City production. Born out of the idea that simply walking around outside in some places is now viewed as a dangerous and revolutionary act - the four minute and thirty-five second track burns with a slow fury as it seeks to find out if "the lost can still be found". To get the job done Lynch turned to the young gun with the magic touch - Mr. Dallas Jack and the services of his production company Record One. It was in fact on a stroll on the Music City Greenways where the artist and producer initially met midway through the city-wide lockdown in early May. In these bizarre times their first encounter might someday even be read about in a "Ripley's Believe It Or Not" style posting somewhere. "While strolling on a path above the Cumberland River we heard a man cry out for help," Lynch remembers. "We stopped at the same time and ended up together assisting the rescue call that pulled the overturned boater from the cold and rapid waters." For such an auspicious beginning you would expect the resulting song to be impressive and it is. Jack built up an amazing track with live drums, bass and a memorable solo straight out of the classic rock playbook with a modern approach that puts the Lynch/Jack team and their future output high on the Music City watch list. "Dallas nailed it and understood precisely what was needed to bring the straight forward rocker to life," Lynch enthused. "He captured my unique qualities in a process that was easy, efficient, professional and well beyond my expectation. We scheduled some more sessions for our Fall releases and I can't wait to see where we go from here." The composition itself is a much needed response to the lost cause that has been most of a Covid-impacted 2020. With an ethereal chorus and an enigmatic couple of verses, Lynch says that the song carries an important message for an ever-changing and increasingly confusing world. "In the bridge we sing 'Walk, Walk, Walk, Walk, Talk, Talk, Talk, Talk' in a gang vocal style," Lynch said describing the hypnotic middle break. "I think that's the most important part. People should get out in nature with their family and friends and discuss every aspect of what has transpired around the globe these past few months. Over and over again. From every angle. It's the only defense we have to combat the dehumanizing potential of social distancing and mandated muzzling of the populace that has come about in the wake of all this societal upheaval." Lynch is current seeking Sponsors and Artist Patrons to support his future recordings and back catalogue. Please visit the following link to join the RRL "Executive Production" team today! >>>
