BASTARD JAZZ RELEASES NEW REMIX FROM RUMTUM’S ISLES IN INDO “ESCAPE CAPE (BROTHERTIGER REMIX)” IS OUT NOW
Half a year after the release of his debut album, “Isles In Indo,” the Denver, Colorado-based visual artist and producer RUMTUM (aka John Hastings) has tapped his friend Brothertiger for his first official remix. Brothertiger, a pioneer of the early ’10s chillwave scene, has chosen “Escape Cape” – track 4 of the LP – and transformed it into a rich, textural piece.

The drums lie higher in the mix, such that, despite the ethereal harmonies, the remix maintains a space-out danceability. RUMTUM’s original melody still remains, but through a kaleidoscope of layered sounds: “Escape Cape” has become dreamscape.

Leah Justine releases new video for “Run Home”
Discussing the song, Leah commented, “I co-wrote the song with Tony Hauenstein and my best friend from kindergarten, Kallista Frost, about a momma’s boy that she had to call it quits with. Divorces can be a bit taboo, and break-up songs are usually portrayed in a melancholy or angry light, but I wanted to feature a different perspective. The strong clear-headed female, who knows her worth, and chooses herself over a toxic relationship.”

Debut single, “Cat Song,” came to Zed while she was playing guitar and looking at her own feline friend. There’s a certain vulnerability that comes along with a relationship with an animal, and maybe that’s why we love them as much as we do – not because of the unconditionality of their love (a sentiment spoken about dogs in particular) – but because we can’t help but just be ourselves with our pets. That shameless co-existence is pretty liberating.

BORTS MINORTS + HUG VICTIM: V13 Premieres Video For Title Track To Brut! Debut; Collaboration Between West Coast Performer And Netherlands’ Guitarist Out Now On Nefarious Industries
Veterans of weird and brothers from another mother, BORTS MINORTS is the project of Arizona-based performer Christopher Carlone, while HUG VICTIM is one of the monikers of NYC-based Timo Ellis of Netherlands. The two come together to create a blistering eight-song eargasm of insanity simply titled Brut!, named affectionately after the 1970s aftershave cologne of the same name. The results are an enchanting and punishing sonic assault of PCP induced anthems that will leave the listener wondering, “… um, what the hell just happened?”
She paved the way for the project with the release of the whimsical single “Trip”, which has already racked up more than 100,000 streams to date.
