THE DELI MAG feature “In My Mouth” by AZAR SWAN in their playlist “Best Electronic Songs by Emerging NYC Artist”

ScreenShot072ScreenShot224

“Elements of Kate Bush at her most adventurous emerge in the vocal stylings of Zorah Atash as she sings with her band Azar Swan on the hypnotic new single ‘In My Mouth.’ Its rhythmic pulse pushes forward with a teutonic minimalism that somehow manages to also swing in the process, positioning this track next to the output of Swedish electronic duo The Knife.”

TEMPERS “Strange Harvest” is featured on REFINERY 29’s “Best New Music Mix for May 2013”

ScreenShot209

“Dark, but not dire, Tempers own a goth-glam sound that’s equal parts thick atmosphere and catchy melody. “Strange Harvest,” with its pulsing New Wave beat and emotive lyrics may be the band’s best release to date. We don’t know whether to hold a seance or start a dance party.”

“‘Maybe I’ll do it on my own,’ Thorn sings on ‘Committee,’ a soft and sweet song exuding a tint of hazed melancholy. An organ drives the melody, but it is Thorn who tends to catch the ear—although she may not be the loudest thing on the track, the singer stuns with her straightforward vocal, which helps the track float along nicely.”

DROWNED IN SOUND features “Strange Harvest” by TEMPERS on their “Best Tracks to be Released Over the Past Seven Days”

ScreenShot191

“Royal Trux and Crystal Castles walk into a bar, get sloshed on absinthe and cross-pollinate: Tempers walk out. ‘Strange Harvest’ is their second single to date and throbs with lethal intent. Its shoegaze undertones are balanced on a knife-edge against a pitch black abyss of gothic synth, peering into its atmospheric churn is an unnerving but thoroughly exhilarating experience.”

IMPOSE MAG includes “Strange Harvest” in their wrap-up best-of “WEEK IN POP”

Impose

“Tempers dropped a listen to their single “Strange Harvest” ahead of the single’s release April 24 from Pendu Sound. “Harvest” follows up their recent Eyes Wide Wider single, with a stranger programmed ballroom keyboard blitz that tunnels it’s guitars and everything else into sounds from the deepest subterraneans of public pipeline utilities.”

TEMPERS “Strange Harvest” is featured on FLAVORWIRE’s “10 Best Songs We Heard This Week”

ScreenShot189

“NYC-based Tempers are the latest signing to dark overlord Todd Pendu’s label Pendu Sound, and their music is pretty much exactly what you might expect — it’s dark and atmospheric, with a decidedly gothic bent and a whole lot of swirling, ghostly synth sounds.”

STARRED is featured on THE GREAT ESCAPE’s “Band of the Day”

“Their music is mesmeric, listening to the track ‘Cemetery’, you are taken to a strange world, rough, clangy guitar and omnipotent synths juxtapose as Thorn’s melancholy vocals hang eerily above the track, reminiscent of Julee Cruise’s music in Twin Peaks.”

Vote for CHELSEA WOLFE in OLOGY’s Anti-Grammy Awards

“Los Angeles singer/songwriter Chelsea Wolfe has cultivated an unforgettable sonic identity with her two albums The Grime and the Glow (2010) and Apokalypsis (2011)—bleak, cavernous alternative rock punctuated by gloomy post-punk guitars (think Pornography-era The Cure), dirge-like, funereal tempos and Chelsea’s raw, early PJ Harvey howl. Take a close listen to songs like “Moses” or “Mer” and watch the hairs on your arm freak the f@#k out.”

OLOGY is holding its own Anti-Grammy Awards and has nominated Chelsea Wolfe for Best New Artist. Cast your vote and tell OLOGY why Chelsea Wolfe deserves to win!
