Resumé is not only something Haddy Racks can present to all potential employers, it is the name of his brand new album, and it’s his first. From it is a nice cut and if you’ve been paying attention to the songs I’ve been posting from him in the last few months, you are sure to appreciate this one too so have a listen to “Take You Home”, which also features Evie Blanco and was produced by AListFame.
If you’re someone who is into labels or artists who release lathe cuts as records, you’re going to like this. The Rashida Joneses have released a new single and you’re only going to be able to pick it up when they are doing shows for the next few weeks. First and foremost, here is where you’ll be seeing this crazy trio:
July 1… Oshkosh, WI (Reptile Palace)
July 5… Minneapolis, MN (Kitty Cat Klub)
July 6… Madison, WI (Mickey’s Tavern)
July 7… St. Louis, MO (Foam)
July 8… Chicago, IL (Mr. Rodgers Playhouse)
July 9… Detroit, MI (Donovan’s Pub)
July 10… Fort Wayne, IN (The Brass Rail)
While the label is calling this a “split single”, that’s not the proper term for what this is. Their new single will be released as an 8 inch lathe cut, made differently than your standard records. They had them done through Precarian Cuts of Tucson, Arizona, the process of which was documented below.
Technically, a “split single” is the phrase used when each side of the record features music by different artists. What Tasty Tapes are focusing on is the fact that both songs on this record are bangers, solid hits, a double A-side if you will. You may have a listen to one of the tracks below, called “Alien Ocean”. Remember, these records are only at shows, not at stores so show some support and if you can, say hello.

Jake Smallwood (vocals), Jacob Newman (guitar/backing vocals), Tristan Sava (guitar/organ), Henry Sava (drums) and James Bryman (bass/backing vocals) are a psych rock outfit called White Room but don’t wait around to say “I believe you”, have a listen to them. “Think Too Much” is their latest single and they’re passing around the video for it and I’d like to share it with you.
Directed by Jacob Stark is the new clip from Partybaby called “I Don’t Wanna Wait” and trust me, once you press play and listen to this, you’re going to wonder why you waited around for seconds to check this song and band out.

You may not put together the words “Utah” and “rock band” together often but that will change once you get to know Spirit City. They play a nice blend of pop with their rock and they’re going to show everyone what it takes to maintain that power when they drop an EP called We’re All Insane but how crazy are they? Maybe they’re not that loonie but have a listen to the title track to see how much they’re off their rockers.
JSoul has a new project where he does some retouches of songs by D’Angelo, Erykah Badu, Nas and many more and he simply calls this JSoul Remixed It. You can stream it above through Bandcamp and if it is to your liking, purchase.
Out on September 23rd will be a new album from Sweden’s death metal monarchs Usurpress. Okay, maybe not monarchs but they are a great band and The Regal Tribe (Agonia) will be a continuation of what they have been doing to fans, and that is be supplies of brutal progressive death metal with a hint of crust and a touch of doom. For a taste of the ugliness, have a listen to “Across The Dying Plains”.
Heart Of The City is the name of 704’s forthcoming street album and he’s ready to give to you, but not just yet. He’s making you wait but not too long. Until then, check out a song he did with Nipsey Hussle called “Chase The Grip” abd be sure to chase it and hold on tight.
Brooklyn combo Pill will be releasing their debut album on August 19th through the Mexican Summer label. Convenience is the final title and they want to share a track from it called “100% Cute” and do you feel you are 100 percent cute? Maybe just 90 percent? 32? Either way, find out the true power of your charm with this (meaning “click the link to listen to the song elsewhere). The album is available to pre-order through MexicanSummer.com.
