Introducing…Special Interest

Special Interest is a four piece punk band emerging from New Orleans, Louisiana. Combining elements of No-Wave, Glam, and Industrial Special Interest create a frenetic and urgent revisioning of punk and electronic music for a modern world gone mad. Propulsive drum machines, a swirling layer of detuned samples, and a driving bass line create the foundation across which angular guitar work and dissonant synth lines glide. Front and center are Alli Logout’s commanding vocals and razor sharp lyrics moving from high camp satire to insightful political imperatives often within the course of one song.

Special Interest have returned with a new single, ‘(Herman’s) House’, their first for Rough Trade Records. It comes with a video directed by Special Interest and Juicebox Burton alongside vocalist Alli Logout.


The muses of La Musa: GRAE

Toronto artist GRAE may be inspired by 80’s new wave, but the singer-songwriter is taking a fresh approach to pop, blending the light-hearted inclinations of new wave with indie-led guitar and dreamy bedroom pop vocals. This sound has culminated in the sparkling debut album ‘Whiplash’. Out now, ‘Whiplash’ is GRAE’s nostalgic contemplation of the multitudes of love, mirrored by a polished, yet composite sound.

Music by Bergman: Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard

Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard’s debut album Backhand Deals, is a rejuvenating homage to unpretentious 1970s classic rock that steadfastly refuses to take itself too seriously.

Introducing…Marcoca

In a time of made up genres and increasingly entwined music, Marcoca is not even trying to put themselves in to a specific category. Generally they consist of four individual musicians with various tastes and backgrounds, that enjoy their differences and don’t worry too much about the outcome.

The second project of the German band, ‘Cosmic Blunder“ originated out of the urge to merge new psychedelic sounds with elements of funk, jazz and surf rock, while keeping the stuff that worked on the first record in place. The result is a reverb soaked ride through songs that cover the ups and downs of life and all the questions that come along with it. While some of the songs had been previously arranged, some instrumental parts developed during the recording process in order to preserve the natural flow of the music.
