3 Feet High & Rising: Raleigh Rock "N" Roll Outfit Thirsty Curses Share "Nothing Really Matters" Single (Mash-up Music Video)


Thirsty Curses is out with a new single and companion music video for "Nothing Really Matters," which dropped last week from the band's forthcoming album. The music video features a mash-up of two songs from their forthcoming album, which conveys the stylistic diversity of Thirsty Curses. Thirsty Curses is an eclectic Rock "N" Roll outfit based out of Raleigh, North Carolina. Thirsty Curses' material draws from numerous genres including Punk, Folk, Country, and Grunge and explores lyrical themes ranging from the existential to the absurd. Thirsty Curses' songs are both impassioned and sardonic, comical and foreboding. The two songs heard within Thirsty Curses' "Nothing Really Matters'" music video echoes something to the effect of Guns N' Roses meets Every Time I Die with a bit of Scissor Sisters-style "campy" piano bar cabaret mixed in, for good measure.


As YES! Weekly wrote, "Thirsty Curses make Rock "N" Roll, with a boisterous beer-swilling edge to it. Many of these songs are about living it up while things fall apart at the seams or, at least, trying to find some glory in chaos and meaninglessness." Thirsty Curses has a diverse sound, pulling from a variety of genres. Indeed, as Dying Scene once noted, "as schizophrenic as their genre influences seems to be, the one common denominator is that I dig every single track I'm hearing... I defy you not to get hooked by the track "Dimlit Cathedral." Thirsty Curses released two albums independently, Holy Moly & All Shook Up—which included singles "Holy Moly," "Dimlit Cathedral," "Exile," and "Neon Sign"—before signing with Charleston-based Indie label Spectra Music Group in early 2019.


Thirsty Curses put out its self-titled album shortly thereafter, which included the singles "Bruises On Your Shoulders," "Smash/Hit," and "Racing Through The Daze." Incidentally, the music video for "Bruises On Your Shoulders" won Best In Festival at The Broadcast Education Association's 2021 Festival of Media Arts and was screened at The 2021 Richmond International Film Festival. Thirsty Curses will independently release new music in 2021-2022, effectively kicking things off with their latest single, "Nothing Really Matters." Thirsty Curses' current line-up consists of rhythm guitarist, vocalist, and organ player Wilson Getchell, bassist Clayton Herring, drummer Evan Miller, and lead guitarist Alexander "Alex" Weir. Thirsty Curses' latest single, "Nothing Really Matters," is now available on digital streaming platforms. Their as-yet-to-be-titled forthcoming album will be released independently on March 4, 2022.

"Cover art by extreme avant-garde painter and artist Danny Davies (@dannydaviesartist.) Since the mysterious disappearance of MF DOOM, we may all come to the conclusion that the missing puzzle pieces of his story may never be revealed about what might have really happened to Daniel Dumile. Perhaps, evolving again through a different dimension within another dimension. We celebrate the life of this prodigy genius, the beloved enigmatic wizard phenomenon super-villain lyricist. It's such a special solemn ceremony of commemoration. This DOOM MiXx , hopefully, takes us on an energizing journey of collage celebrating only some of the many gifts left by DOOM. Prepare for surprises and exclusive content, while simultaneously being creatively executed. This kaleidoscopic mix transcends time and space being re-birthed and re-incarnated since some of the early recordings of The Super Villain. There are many selections that will, possibly, get the best of your emotions for the true

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. R.I.P. Daniel "MF DOOM" Dumile Thompson. "The difference between talent and genius. The significance of some artists' bodies of work cannot be measured or quantified by man-made instruments or hypotheses... it's like accurately guessing how many people on the planet see the same star in the night sky at the same time.

Jeff Rosenstock Shares "Skarranged" Version of 2020's NO DREAM Fittingly Re-titled SKA DREAM (Polyvinyl/Quote Unquote Records)

"You can PRE-ORDER some sweet limited (and unlimited) vinyl from us here . (There's about 200 left of the above variant!) You can LISTEN to SKA DREAM on all the things here . That includes Quote Unquote Records, where you can download the whole thing for free and if you choose to make a donation there, all the money goes to The First Nations Development Institute. HOPE YA LIKE THE RECORD! HERE'S A LITTLE THING I WROTE ABOUT IT: SKA DREAM is a complete re-recording of Jeff Rosenstock's critically-acclaimed 2020 record, NO DREAM; however, this time around, all the songs are Ska songs—you're welcome. The very good idea to make this record came together when, like many other bands throughout this pandemic that refused to participate in super-spreading events, we were trying to find a fun way to make some music together to share with people. Otherwise, we were just spending our evenings texting the Group Chat in dread about the collapsing world around us. Not the
