Media Jeweler tailor fractured post-punk on "Splayed Wayside"

Media Jeweler weave an intricate thread on "Splayed Wayside." On the three years since their debut release, $99 R/T Hawaii, the post-punk four-piece further darken their lively, math rock arrangements with a pointedly Dadaist expression which gives the song a brooding, sinister edge. Made up of throbbing bass lines and a gyrating guitar tone that sounds as if it's knotted like barbed wire fence, they rebel on some form of societal malaise with a statement that is both impenetrable and alluring. 

"Splayed Wayside" is the the second single off of their forthcoming full-length, 1-800-SUCCEED. It comes out on March 30 via Fire Talk. Make sure to catch their record release party at Scoops on April 7.

Cloud finds his purpose on euphoric "Two Hands Bound"

Cloud escapes into a state of blissful euphoria on "Two Hands Bound." The lavish sound singer-songwriter Tyler Taormina creates overflows with effervescence, as gossamer electronic textures and buoyant percussion hits build into a vibrant carnival of beautiful colors. But beneath the lively exterior also lies a heartfelt message: you're ultimate the architect of your own happiness, even when outside forces try to convince you otherwise. 

"Two Hands Bound" is the latest single off of Cloud's full-length Plays with Fire, which was just released on March 9 via Audio Antihero. Juan Rodríguez

Hark Madley creates a groundbreaking name for himself on "Friendship 7"

LA producer Mark Hadley, better known as Hark Madley (as of recently), has created a groundbreaking name for himself. Just released from his upcoming EP, titled EP1, is "Friendship 7." With transmissions straight from astronaut John Glenn’s spaceflight aboard Friendship 7 back in 1962 (“Am I in contact with anyone, over.”), he single-handedly immerses his audience into a world of deep bass, mesmerizing synths, and genre-defying transmissions that no other artist has landed in before.  A crashing reminder of exactly what pop, indie and electro fans are missing at their shows, this is an ambient journey of beautifully-produced and relaxing transitions which set the bar for this genre, higher than ever before.

Law of Attraction states that we have the ability to attract into our lives whatever we are focusing on, as this thought attesta: “I also feel the weight of the world right now, and hope that I can help through my music, providing a place where people can come to be still and reflect.” Taking a few minutes to listen to his SoundCloud will only make your eagerness for his EP drop even more profound. His talent is universal and jaw-dropping, to say the least. Kayla Hay
