As Kiley Lotz told Paste magazine, Magic Gone represents “finally starting to accept who I am… Instead of running away from the hard stuff, I’m starting to now sort of see the joy and pride you can take in owning your own shit in your life.” Petal’s final Magic Gone single is “Stardust,” a sparse and delicate rock ballad that showcases the raw-yet-concise power of Lotz’s voice.

Petal, the indie pop project of Kiley Lotz, will release a new album, Magic Gone, on June 8th. Petal is an American rock band from Scranton, Pennsylvania, currently signed to Run For Cover Records. The band consists of only one permanent member, Kiley Lotz, with the rest of the band a rotating group of musicians from other bands such as Ben and Brianna of Tigers Jaw and members of Three Man Cannon, Halfling, Wicca Phase Springs Eternal, and Captain, We’re Sinking.

Recorded over the course of a month at Studio 4 in Conshocken, PA, Magic Gone is a bitingly honest look at adulthood, accountability, responsibility, and mental health and the difficulties that go along with each of them. “There comes a moment where all the paranoia, anxiety and pain become too much and you realize the structure you built to survive is no longer is going to serve you,” says Lotz of the three year period that inspired the album. “I had to make some very big life changes to make sure I didn’t die. It was not easy taking that level control over my life after spending many years worrying about upsetting others and being the best and most successful person I could be.”

Lotz  songs include the themes of mental health, identity, and adulthood that inspired the record.

The Boston-based band Fiddlehead have one release to their name so far — 2014’s Out Of The Bloom EP — but next month they’ll put out their debut album, Springtime And Blind, via Run For Cover Records. “Lay Low” is the first single from that album, and it’s a fiery burst of rage and confusion about growing older. The album was written as a way for frontman Patrick Flynn to process the death of his father, and “Lay Low” looks at how sometimes the immensity and brevity of life can often feel like the same thing, and how that’s absolutely overwhelming. “Watch your friends go, see your hair grow/ Black to grey in a day and see yourself old,” Flynn screams. “It’s too much for me/ I gotta lay low.” The rest of the band pummels away at breakneck speed and never lets up.

The accompanying video for the track intercuts performance footage with stop-motion animation that plays out some fleeting childhood memories, with step-stools and towering parental figures and grainy video footage designed to make you feel small. The band’s guitarist Alex Henery also directed the video, and he had this to say about it:

When you think back to your childhood you can often feel overwhelmed by memories, overwhelmed by the amount of time that has passed and how you and those around you have changed. I wanted the video to be reflection of that chaos. Using stop motion seemed to be the best medium to show the rapid pace of life. I really wanted the video to be a mixed media piece and I was heavily influenced by the Alien Workshop skate videos, Memory screen in particular. I drove to middle of nowhere in western Massachusetts to buy the handmade doll house and then spent hours with the rest of the band painstakingly moving the figures to capture the frames. I knew it was going to take a lot of time to get all the animations but definitely feel like it was worth it seeing the final video.

Featuring members of Braid, Their / Coaster and Stay Ahead of The Weather This is the third EP from Lifted Bells, but rest assured, they won’t be releasing new music in bite-sized formats forever. “The EP will hopefully be a fresh introduction to the band and what we’re up to,” Nanna says. “We’re already over halfway done with a full length and are looking forward to getting out on the road. It’s going to be a fun, wild ride.”

The cover of Good Nature, Turnover’s third album, depicts a utopian forest filled with animals. It’s based on reality, but doesn’t feel real itself. The same can be said of Good Nature itself – it sees and glistens in the same sunlight as us, but its sound drifts listeners away to somewhere beyond. It’s bathed in light, hazy on the horizon and gentle to the touch. The term “supernatural” has been used in every corner of music, from Santana to the Sugababes to last year’s Carly Rae Jepsen banger. Turnover, however, seem to incorporate it in an entirely new sense. Front man Austin Getz doesn’t blink when asked to sum up Turnover’s third full-length, Good Nature. “Learning,” he replies. “This whole record is about learning. Opening your eyes to new things, going outside of your comfort zone, and learning to grow into something new.”

How can something so furious feel so life-affirming? There is so much love and passion in Camp Cope’s debut album that, even after a million listens, I still find myself stuck to the chair and gripping onto the table as those drums kick in. Singular and unrelenting, the fuzz drums, magic bass lines and Georgia Maq’s voice , these 8 short songs are everything. Not only was this an incredible debut, it also felt like the start of something. From the now, sadly, kinda legendary “girls to the front” incident, and the subsequent #ItTakesOne campaign, it felt like this year Camp Cope changed from being just a local band that released a great record, to a scene-changing force for good – breaking faces, and absolutely-no-doubt inspiring.

Their latest single The Opener, from the band’s forthcoming album, features lyrics that take on gender disparity over a swaggering bassline, insistent drums and urgent guitars: “You worked so hard, but we were just lucky/To ride those coattails into infinity/And all my success has got nothing to do with me/Yeah, tell me again how there just aren’t that many girls in the music scene.”

Taking some time out from recording last month, bass player Kelly-Dawn Hellmrich wrote a guest editorial piece for the monthly edition of The Music and discussed Camp Cope’s “overall experience being non-male in the music industry”. “In this music world we have all been made to feel less important, less listened to and deserving of space because of our gender,” Hellmrich writes. “This continues together as a band where we are constantly facing discrimination and sexism and then criticism when we are outspoken about it. There have been people asking us if we knew how to use our equipment or if we write our own songs,

And as the year draws to an end, the band were voted “This Year’s Girl Band” Camp Cope had already retaliated in the best way possible, dropping new songs “Keep Growing” and “The Opener” pounding and fully focussed, ready.

If you’re hoping to score some life tips from Camp Cope’s sophomore LP How To Socialise & Make Friends, you might want to look elsewhere.

“It’s not like an instructional album. Like I don’t know how to socialise or make friends,” frontwoman Georgia Maq admits . The Melbourne trio are about to follow their acclaimed, self-titled debut with a record that’s even more raw than the first, if that’s even possible.

“In the last one we had like a couple a harmonies and like a gang vocal and this one is just like fully stripped back, there’s nothing,” Georgia says. “Everything was done just really quickly, how we like it, and I think I don’t care as much for this album. I don’t care what people think.

“I care less because I’m happy with what we’ve done and so anyone else’s opinion doesn’t really matter.”

When she says “really quickly”, she means it. The album was written in a couple of months, and recorded in just two days (though half a day longer than the first). In fact, drummer Sarah ‘Thommo’ Thompson says she booked the tour for this album before a single word was written.

“[We] went ‘Uh oh, now we have to record it’ and we just went to the same place we did last time, just booked two days with nothing written knowing that if we didn’t have dates to aim for we wouldn’t do it,” Thomo says.

The album is totally done now, though we’ll have to wait until March to hear it.

Camp Cope have made a fiery comeback with the first taste of their upcoming second album.

The empowering punk trio pretty much instantly found their musical voice – loud, fearless, sincere – on their self-titled debut album (which was nominated for a 2016 J Award).

Now we get ‘The Opener’, Camp Cope’s first new music since last year’s ‘Keep Growing’, which doesn’t mess much with the sound you’re used to but it does cement their status as a vital voice in the music scene as they simultaneously call out the hypocrisies within it. ‘The Opener’ bites back at the phoneys in a male-dominated industry who’ve told the band to do things every other which way but their own.

“It’s another all-male tour preaching equality,” bellows singer-guitarist Georgia Maq in a line dripping with acerbic determination; her cutting lyrics coiling around Kelly-Dawn Hellmrich’s mercurial bass melodies and Sarah Thompsons’ sturdy rhythmic backing.

The song is also the first taste of Camp Cope’s upcoming second full-length record. No title or release date yet but the LP is due sometime in 2018 (via Poison City Records)

Crying began as a chiptune/power pop band who embraced their love for stadium rock to write infectiously melodic tunes on a massive scale. The new incarnation retains Elaiza Santos‘ personal, conversational vocal delivery put over progressive guitar riffs, spaced out synths and gargantuan, energizing production. Put your fear of change aside and enter into the new era of Crying. Band is awesome live too, I was introduced to this band when I listened to ‘Beyond the Fleeting Gales’ . That record is probably the best record I have heard this past decade! This band truly is magical and is now one of my favorite bands of all time!
