Free Music Humpday! WHY?, Chelsea Wolfe, GANGI, Nosaj Thing, Cold Showers


MP3: "Strawberries" -

Nipping at the ragged heels of their eagerly devoured Sod in the Seed EP, WHY? at last unleash their fifth long-player, a meticulous work of morbid fascination and offbeat romanticism dubbed Mumps, etc. Though there is a mysterious sickness (perhaps of the mind) that lurks about these thirteen songs, one might also imagine the title as describing the musically swole state of these three Midwestern men as they bring their sound into glisteningly buff focus.

Chelsea Wolfe

MP3: "Appalachia" -

The 2nd single, "Appalachia," off Chelsea Wolfe's haunting 3rd album, Unknown Rooms is a tragic folk ballad, brimming with devastating repetitive guitars, bass & drums & also featuring a beautiful string section that brings despair, hope & love to the song when accompanied with Ms. Wolfe's voice.


MP3: "Gold" -

LA-based psych duo GANGI will release their second full-length release gesture is October 2nd on their own Office of Analogue and Digital label. The band is also in the home stretch of their Kickstarter campaign to help fund the release of the record. GANGI is offering fans a variety of one-of-a-kind premiums, including custom-made studio equipment, synths, and personalized songs.

Nosaj Thing

MP3: "Eclipse/Blue feat. Kazu Makino (Blonde Redhead)" -

It's been three years since the release of Nosaj Thing's highly acclaimed debut album, Drift (Alpha Pup), which topped countless Best Of Year Lists, but 2013 will mark a new chapter for the 27-year-old producer, musician and DJ from Los Angeles. Now, hear "Eclipse/Blue feat. Kazu Makino (Blonde Redhead)," our first taste from Home.

Cold Showers

MP3: "Violent Cries" -

Cold Showers, a band formed in Los Angeles, CA in 2010, fuses the brash power of the shoegazers with the smoky compulsions of the no-wavers - Cold Showers would fit comfortably within the dusty catalog of Factory Records, if only for an industrial subtlety in terms of electronics and acoustics. A piston-precision rhythm section drives all these loud, crafty pop songs. This is the pervasive pop mode against which Cold Showers cast themselves, but they aren't fired in steel to the dark side.
