KT Tunstall Releases New EP and Video


KT Tunstall released her new Golden State EP last week.  To support the release, there's  a brand spankin' new video for the track "Evil Eye". Check it out below.

She's gearing up for the release of a full length album that's scheduled to hit stores in September 2016 via Caroline Records. In the meantime, grab the infectious Golden State HERE.

"This is an album all about joy, although some of these songs are like cats," says KT gleefully, "they're really furry and sweet and then they fuckin' scratch you, and they won't let you put a leash on them, ever."

The Medicine Hat Release New Single


Today we have for you "New Survival" from The Medicine Hat. The single is from their upcoming album that is scheduled to be released this fall. Check it out below.

You can pick up "New Survival" HERE.


The Medicine Hat is a five-piece band from Hamilton, Ontario making experimental pop music. Frontwoman Nabi Sue Bersche's nimble, raw lyricism is illuminated by a voice like holy fire: blistering and purifying. Focussed guitar work dances with the hypnotic timbres and soaring melodies of analog synthesizers. Deft lines and dangerous grooves are intoned by a disciplined drum & bass combo. Chaos lurks beneath the surface of The Medicine Hat's tight motifs and rhythmic trances, erupting into moments of prophetic ecstasy. Their live performances are wild affairs. Brimstone at their heels, The Medicine Hat's contagious energy turns rooms into reveries.
