Informed by graveyard shifts as a paramedic, his fundamentalist Christian upbringing, and a slate of personal tragedies, Trust Ruins is the culmination of the debasement and primality that All Your Sisters virtuoso Jordan Morrison saw in his surroundings. Teetering between disgust and despair, the ten tracks that comprise the LP are the score to a series of de-indoctrinating sermons, armed with marching protest beats. The album’s second single, “Self Medicating,” premieres today alongside a new interview with the artist and perfectly showcases the brooding and bleak tone of Trust Ruins.
Already one of the year’s most anticipated releases, Elizabeth Colour Wheel’s debut album Nocebo is a masterclass in both aggression and reflection. Backed by San Fransisco-based label The Flenser, the experimental five-piece is poised to dominate 2019 with its thunderous blend of shoegaze, metal, and noise rock. After listening to album opener “Pink Palm,” that prediction becomes clear.
