Galaxxu's music can best be summed up with this Sonny Sharrock quote: "I’ve been trying to find a way for the terror and the beauty to live together in one song. I know it’s possible." Galaxxu draws inspiration from Chicago's incredible free jazz and indie scenes of the past and present, European free improv, and electronic noise to create spontaneous compositions that range from quiet, delicate serenity to an abrasive, pedal-to-the-floor assault.
Galaxxu is currently finishing mixing for several upcoming releases and planning a couple of tours in summer and fall of 2017.
Chicago’s Galaxxu is excited to announce a super-limited edition seven inch lathe cut, featuring artwork by Alex Dycylyxyvyi. The two sides reflect the terror and the beauty the quartet tries to capture in their free improvisations. Side A starts off innocently enough, until devolving into a mess of disjointed interplay between a sax crying out, and a guitar that is seemingly being torn apart at the atomic level. Suddenly, the drums offer a rallying cry and Galaxxu breaks out into a wall of furious noise. Side B offers a glimpse into the more subdued side of Galaxxu. At times even soulful, albeit still operating within the confines of their chaotic take on free improvisation, it ends things in a dreamy sequence as if the Galaxxians are surveying the damage they wrought on Side A.

Today Swedish indie-rockers Kaskelott release their haunting and beautiful music video/short film “Flourish” by director Eric Ivar Persson. Definitely worth watching! It is a melancholic homage to 90s Sweden, old school sci-fi and longing away.
"Late Bloomer" was recorded by James Whitten (Pears, Thou, Gland, Donovan Wolfington) and mastered by Carl Saff. Static Masks are a four piece with two vocalists. They tend to get put in the math rock, shoegaze, indie categories. With a goal to make "interesting" and "beautiful" music, Static Masks blend melody and complexity with some nontraditional song structures to create their own version of progressive pop music.
DYLYN just released her new single “Secret” and it’s now available to stream and share on Soundcloud/Spotify.
"This one is personal. My life was turned upside down and as a result this song emerged. “Secret” became therapeutic, it helped me deal with this crazy thing that happens to so many people, yet often remains a taboo subject; especially in song. Writing this new single gave me a chance to connect with people, with my fans whose parents also split up due to infidelity; it became a way of reaffirming for myself and others, "you are not the only one going through this." My last single “Mimosa” and now “Secret” are both authentically me. Though deeply personal, I’m excited to be sharing this side of myself with the world."
Los Angeles, CA – Returning to Dim Mak with a vengeance, the bass house trio known as BROHUG unleash their Knuckles EP.
