THE ARMED - ULTRAPOP ONE OF REVOLVER MAGAZINE'S 25 BEST ALBUMS OF 2021 

"As frontman Adam Vallely told us in our exploratory profile, the Armed's methodology for their bombastic fourth album was simple: Every single element of our culture has been turned into "pop," so why not draw from everything — hardcore, industrial, alt-rock, bubblegum pop, death metal, electrogrind, post-modern art theory and more. From the rousing "ya-ya-ya" punk chants of "All Futures" and nail-scraping guitar solo on "An Iteration," to the floor-pounding churn of "Big Shell" and the ominous Mark Lanegan guest appearance that closes out the whole show, Ultrapop's holistic approach is brazenly overwhelming but also strangely cathartic."

EMMA RUTH RUNDLE SHARES NEW VIDEO “THE COMPANY” 

 

 

Emma Ruth Rundle’s lauded new album Engine of Hell is stark, intimate, and unflinching. For anyone that’s endured trauma and grief, there’s a beautiful solace in hearing Rundle articulate and humanize that particular type of pain not only with her words, but with her particular mysterious language of melody and timbre. The album captures a moment where a masterful songwriter strips away all flourishes and embellishments in order to make every note and word hit with maximum impact, leaving little to hide behind. 

Just off the heels of its release, Rundle has unveiled another stunning and self-directed video for Engine of Hell’s “The Company”. The visual was made on the Isle of Skye. Rundle reveals, “I dreamed this visual poem about innocence of the spirit, sadness and the dark deceiver I spend my life trying to run from. Or is it a friendly entity? What does it mean? Upon waking - I acquired the equipment and made a plan to film it. I enlisted the help of my dear friend, Blake Armstrong, who helped shoot and plays part in the video as well. It was edited by Brandon Kahn. Written, directed and shot by me.”

Engine of Hell is available now on Sargent House: https://ffm.to/err-eoh
