Whelpwisher "Eerie Dearie"

Whelpwisher (aka Ben Grigg of Geronimo!) recently released a new album called Eerie Dearie. Grigg is a multi-talented, multi-instrumentalist, who recently also played trumpet on the forthcoming Lightleak album.

This is Lo-Fi, noisey, garage pop with a solid core of melody. All proceeds from this album will be donated to International Refugee Assistance Project, which is offering legal services to displaced Afghans.

Flex Sinatra "Make A Song About Me"

Flex Sinatra has released the opening track, "Make A Song About Me", from his forthcoming EP, "Beyond Measure", which is set to drop tomorrow, September 24th.

Sinatra is half of the Hip Hop duo Hunit Boys and has released a series of singles this year. However, this EP feels like something vital and should not be slept on.
