Magic Magic Roses premiere first single “In Time” with Vents Magazine

Hear the beautiful new track “In Time,” the first single off Dusk, the forthcoming album from San Francisco dreamy folk band Magic Magic Roses due out at the end of the year on Seattle’s Plume Records:

I started writing ‘In Time’ on a plane to Hawaii, and much of the song takes its cue from being there and searching for shells on the beach. It’s a funny activity, because you are searching and searching and sometimes you don’t find anything, and sometimes you think you’ve found something spectacular, and then you take it home and you realize it’s just a normal rock or something. You have to trust that the ocean will bring you some wonderful treasure someday. I was thinking about this process as a metaphor for relationships…the song again relates to the idea of reckoning – recognizing when something isn’t right and moving on…throwing it back in the ocean!

Performer Magazine premieres “DNA,” the new single from The Watters from their forthcoming album Great Unknown, out on July 1st:

This song screams against being a corporate guinea pig. I tried to compare the seductive associations used by mainstream corporations that make us believe cars and computers are ‘sexy’ to that of a ‘perfect’ human being. It’s hard not to long for that perfection in things…However, the veneer of perfection is a dangerous one.

Heavy Blog Is Heavy premieres the new single “Capturing the Firemares” from Druids‘ forthcoming album Cycles of Mobeum, coming out on June 3rd from Sump Pump Records:

The stuff is pretty great, and has tinges of Mastodon and early Baroness all throughout it. The production is extremely crisp and cutting, which is not something I’m used to hearing from this type of band, so it threw me for a bit of surprise. However, once you understand it’s what the band was going for, you’ll be all about it.
