Brutus "Sand" 5 best songs of the month // Brooklyn Vegan 

Brutus – “Sand” 

I actually just wrote about “Sand” in my recent post-hardcore article as a new post-hardcore song I recommend if you like the classic 2000s bands that the article is mainly about, but “Sand” is also one of the best songs of March so here it is again. Like much of Brutus’ great 2019 album Nest, this song seamlessly blends post-hardcore, post-rock, math rock, and more, and drummer/vocalist Stefanie Mannaerts gives it a soaring pop edge that makes it highly accessible. It comes with a video featuring footage of Brutus’ great live show — let’s hope it won’t be too long before we can see them (and every other band) in person again.

BRUTUS SHARES THE VIDEO OF THE NEW SONG "SAND" 

One year ago Brutus released their second beautiful album “Nest”. Today, in celebration of this anniversary Stephanie, Peter and Stijn reveal their new heavy hitting single, "Sand”. The song was initially recorded for 'Nest' and it comes with this video created from live footage of their last intensely emotive show in Ghent just four weeks ago. 

"If we want to share awesome moments like these again in the near future, we all need to be responsible concerning the COVID-19 virus measures and stay home." - Brutus

Chelsea Wolfe, The Armed & More Isolate/Create Project // Reverb 

As musicians, engineers, and producers are staying in, a slew of great artists have come together to launch a remix project. The Armed, Chelsea Wolfe, Converge, Pelican, Slow Mass, and more have made recordings available for free—opening their tracks for anyone to download, remix, and turn into new creations. 

Isolate/Create, as they're dubbing the project, was launched by The Armed. In a statement, the group said, "Stay at home and make something cool. All for the greater good of stopping the literal apocalypse."

Once you've made something new, they're asking that you share the work online with the #isolatecreate hashtag—and that you support the contributing artists directly if you can. 

"Right now, you can check out stems, full multitrack sessions and artwork files from Converge, Chelsea Wolfe, Deaf Club, La Dispute, Pelican, Slow Mass, yours truly and more," The Armed said. 

To help offset the Isolate/Create server costs, Reverb is hosting all of the project files for free. Find and download them all below. Then share what you come up with using #isolatecreate.

DISHEVELED CUSS RESURRECT ’90S ALT-ROCK ON NEW SINGLE “SHE DON’T WANT” // CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND  

Nick Reinhart has made a name for himself over the years as the unpredictable singer-guitarist in math rock act Tera Melos, one fourth of music geek supergroup Big Walnuts Yonder, and a frequent collaborator of Death Grips, including his own side-project with Zach Hill dubbed Bygones.

Now, Reinhart has hit pause on his wild and technical style of playing to create a new band called Disheveled Cuss — and he’s going full-blown ’90s alt-rock on new single “She Don’t Want”, which Consequence of Sound is premiering today. 

“She Don’t Want” comes from Disheveled Cuss’ debut self-titled album, out June 12th via Sargent House. Technically, this isn’t the first track we’ve heard from Disheveled Cuss. They’ve released two singles prior, “Wanna Be My Friend” and “Nu Complication”, both of which see Reinhart toying with giddy melodies and stringy guitar lines. But neither of those songs sound as infectious as “She Don’t Want”, an alt-rock hit that sounds like a crossover of Teenage Fanclub and Blue Album-era Weezer.

“O RUTHLESS GREAT DIVINE DIRECTOR" both addresses and embodies the hypocrite and the false prophet. The sanctimonious scene police, the friend or community who will turn away or against when things get hard, fear mongering and pervasive misinformation. It was a great pleasure to have Greg Fox’s incredible talent on this song, and to work with Seth Manchester again at the console. “ - Kristin Hayter

THE ARMED LAUNCH "ISOLATE/CREATE" PLATFORM // Revolver 

Last week, experimental post-hardcore collective The Armed released a rough mix of an unfinished track titled "Apocalypse Song," offering it up for fans to download and collaborate on while they stay home and social-distance themselves during the coronavirus pandemic. Other artists saw the project and wanted to take part. From that seed of an idea, the group has now launched an interactive platform they've dubbed ISOLATE/CREATE. As of launch, Chelsea Wolfe, Converge, La Dispute, Pelican, Slow Mass and others have all contributed stems, multi-track sessions, RPG games and/or video files to "spark creativity and inspire digital collaboration."

"It's easy to feel very helpless right now in light of recent global events," the Armed said in a joint statement. "With limited resources and income opportunities dwindling by the day, it's hard to know what exactly anyone can do to help. Well, according to science and simple math (two pretty solid authorities), the biggest thing most of us can do for each other right now is stay in and chill. This, of course, can have its own depressing implications. 

"We've gotten together with some of our friends (virtually, of course) to perhaps make things just a little more bearable. And maybe even pretty great. 

"ISOLATE/CREATE is a free resource that provides creatives (and fans in general) with access to digital assets to spark creativity and inspire digital collaboration, all while still practicing responsible social distancing and helping to flatten the curve. 

"Right now, you can check out stems, full multitrack sessions and artwork files from Converge, Chelsea Wolfe, Deaf Club, La Dispute, Pelican, Slow Mass,  yours truly and more. We hope to keep going with semi-regular updates from even more contributors to help all of us stay busy and creative on our own, together. 

"So stay at home and make something cool. All for the greater good of stopping the literal apocalypse. 

"Alright ... Let's all get to work."
