Nathan Leigh, frontman for his band Nathan Leigh & The Crisis Actors, joins us for an UnCovered interview to discuss the memorable cover artwork for the new EP, ‘House on Stilts.’
‘Off Front Street’ merges indie-rock with elements of shoegaze, slacker rock, and a stripped-down impression, which combine to inject the song with retro tangs ranging from the ’60s to the ’90s.
Melodic hardcore band SickOnes talk us through eight albums that are helping them through this period of lockdown. Read what they chose here.

“Watch The Corners,” the first single from Dinosaur Jr.’s upcoming album I Bet On Sky, premiered online today. The new single starts out with chugging riffs that ease into Mascis’ vocals, and properly closes with a shredding solo. Wedged in the middle of the tune is an atypical breakdown with a brief flash of acoustic guitar. “I always liked that since I was a kid, from like, Black Sabbath,” Mascis says. “Suddenly they go into acoustic, back into electric – I guess I’ve always been into that.”
