Spanish Love Songs are a five-piece Los Angeles-based Punk/Indie Rock band consisting of guitarist and vocalist Dylan Slocum, guitarist Kyle McAulay, bassist Trevor Dietrich, drummer Ruben Duarte, and keyboardist Meredith Van Woert. Initially formed in 2014, Spanish Love Songs have released two fill-length albums and an EP on Wiretap Records, Bearded Punk Records, Uncle M Music, and A-F Records. Spotify and Bandcamp, also, list an additional Name-Your-Price album-length collection entitled LITTLE GIANTS from 2016, which appears to consist primarily of acoustic/demo recordings. Currently abroad on a three-week UK/EU tour supporting The Menzingers, Spanish Love Songs just released their third highly-anticipated album, Brave Faces Everyone, this past Friday, via Pure Noise Records. Brave Faces Everyone was preceded by three pre-album singles/music videos, "Losers," "Kick," and most recently, "Beachfront Property." Last week, prior to the full album's release, Spanish Love Songs, along with FLOOD Magazine, premiered one final music video for "Beachfront Property," as directed by Ian Shelton & Will Acuña.


It's a well-executed clip for one of the catchiest songs on an extremely catchy album; Shelton & Acuña, basically, just filmed Spanish Love Songs performing "Beachfront Property" in front of a red sports car (maybe, an old Mercedes Benz?) in a stark red-colored room, but it's very effective! Brave Faces Everyone was recorded late last year with Spanish Love Songs' in-house producer/guitarist Kyle McAulay at Howard Benson's West Valley Recording Studios and has already drawn comparisons to the works of Bruce Springsteen, The Menzingers, and Manchester Orchestra. A sort of running mantra/theme through the album is "when you're young, you just want to be heard," as frontman Dylan Slocum laments. "If you sing something loud enough and long enough, hopefully, people are able to find some peace in that," Slocum laments within an album press release. Again, Spanish Love Songs are currently on a UK/EU tour in support of The Menzingers through February 15, 2020 and will be embarking on their own State-side tour starting Thursday, February 20th supporting The Wonder Years, alongside Free Throw & Pool Kids. Spanish Love Songs' Brave Faces Everyone is now available in both physical and digital formats directly from Pure Noise Records.

Honestly, at this point in time, Run The Jewels (RTJ) should require absolutely no introduction... but, just to be safe, here's a brief/obligatory introduction: RTJ consists of rapper/producer and Definitive "Def" Jux co-founder El-P and emcee and OutKast affiliate Killer Mike . Legend has it, El & Mike first met on the set of Mr. Muthaf**kin' eXquire's "The Last Huzzah" (Remix) music video shoot. Soon after, [adult swim] Senior Vice President/Creative Director Jason DeMarco—then, at Williams Street Records—connected Killer Mike with El-P , who would produce his phenomenal 2012 album, R.A.P. Music. Mike , additionally, appeared alongside El on his own 2012 Fat Possum Records album, Cancer 4 Cure, on stand-out track, "Tougher Colder Killer." R.A.P. Music & Cancer 4 Cure were released weeks apart, so fast friends Killer Mike & El-P decided to tour together behind their then-new albums. After the widespread success of said tou

The Hard Times Writers Recruit The Lawrence Arms' Frontman Brendan Kelly As "Crustie" Kramer for Punk Rock Seinfeld (@punkrockseinfeld)

Last night while watching 90 Day Fiance with my lovely wife and surfing The Internet, I stumbled upon a post by The Lawrence Arms (@thelawrencearms) which read, "Damn you, Seinfeld, you useless pustule! "Dig this: BK is the voice of "Crustie" Kramer on the new, stop-motion animation Punk Rock Seinfeld. You can watch the first episode, The Pronoun, now on YouTube!" "BK" is, of course, The Lawrence Arms frontman Brendan Kelly, also, of Brendan Kelly & The Wandering Birds, Slapstick, The Broadways, and The Falcon fame. Kelly moonlights as both a label co-founder at Red Scare Industries and a writer for Punk/Hardcore satire news site, The Hard Times . Actually, Punk Rock Seinfeld is entirely run by The Hard Times Writers; it was created by Dan Luberto, Eric Navarro, and Kevin Tit. Luberto voices George, Tit voices Jerry, and Heather Cook voices Elaine. Here's a brief synopsis of Episode 1, The Pronoun, posted by The Hard Times on Facebook

Shadows of Tomorrow: BIG GHOST LIMITED Shares His Illustrious Thoughts On DOOM's Life, Death & Career (MF DOOM Tribute)

CREDIT: KARISSA KANESHIRO (@karissakaneshiro) Honestly, it doesn't even feel like there's a proper way to elegize an eccentric and extremely talented artist such as MF DOOM, who meant so much to so many of us for so many years for so many different reasons as truly unique as DOOM himself. So, what better way to pay tribute to The Man, The Myth, THE MASK himself than by speaking to those closest to him? With a heavy heart, I proudly present Shadows of Tomorrow; a new recurring column in tribute to DOOM in an effort to re-tell the tall tales, strange stories, and lesser-known tidbits of The Metal Face Villain himself.
