album Full of Snakes
After numerous EPs, splits, and random DIY recordings, Philadelphia-based foursome Mumblr
are ready to bare it all on their first full-length album, Full of Snakes,
due out September 16th via Fleeting Youth Records.
Full of Snakes is a phrase drummer Scott Stitzer made up to describe how he felt after a night of hard drinking, but when you hear the subjects lead singer Nick Morrison tackles throughout the album, it could easily describe the struggles, inner demons, anxieties, fears, and confused emotions coiling through his mind while transitioning from youth to adulthood. Every song is a cathartic release of emotion as Morrison reflects on the loss of innocence, race, relationships, self-esteem, and the fight against growing up over fuzz-fueled guitars and powerful rhythms.
The first song from the album is "Philadelphia," a portrait of the city they live in and love.
Here is the video for "All The Royal Years Are Gone" from Brooklyn-based five-piece Clouder's sophomore album, Sister Raygun, released earlier this year via Fleeting Youth Records.
The live footage was filmed at Pianos in Brooklyn, New York by director Bryan Bruchman. If you’ve never seen Clouder live, the video does well in capturing what you can expect: Steve Spinella (guitar), Matt Revie (guitar), Jim Woods (drums), and Max Goransson (bass) charging full-force as charismatic lead singer Eric Gilstrap plays the role of pied piper, enticing fans to interact, get close, and come face-to-face as he wails an anthem about playing shows and conquering lame bands around the world.
