FEATURE: Check out Atlanta-based punk rock band HOWLING STAR

HOWLING STAR is garage rock band, from the ATL, making some pretty hard punk music. They describe themselves as “four minds, four sounds, one band” coming together to usher in the new generation of brutal rock music—the four horse-persons of the rock-pocalypse, if you will. Formed by several members of Tragedy Called Truth, HOWLING STAR’s members have played sets all around Atlanta and continue to prove…

"Whether you want to see it as devolution and evolution, and the place…

AFROPUNK PREMIERE: "Dear Nora" by Poet/Musician Shirlette Ammons ft. Meshell Ndegeocello offers a dose of hopefulness

"For me, Meshell Ndegeocello is the musician who best represents a genuine creative freedom, without fear of bounds or boundaries. Her catalogue of music is genius and has undoubtedly been one that has provided me with the most inspiration, affirmation, challenge to learn, and freedom to create what I want how I want. It's really difficult to put into words how much it means to have her perform "Dear Nora"--a song I wrote that reflects this notion of 'love as an act of…

NEW MUSIC: Lafayette's 'TN Motor' is a killer set of raw garage and indie rock #SoundCheck

A duo from Paris named after a French General in the American Revolutionary War records a dirty garage record inspired by the modern urban decay of Detroit in a studio stocked with vintage gear in Nashville. Got it? It probably shouldn't work. Certainly not nearly as well as it does. But on Lafayette's 3rd full length, TN Motor, the duo of singer Nathalie Loriot and guitarist Franck Hedin cuts through the contradictions, delivering a killer set of raw garage and indie…
