Tolliver’s New Release ThinBlackDuke is Out Now

TOLLIVER: New EP ThinBlackDuke Is Out Now
ThinBlackDuke EP is out everywhere at https://found.ee/Rnpc

Tolliver’s “seraphic falsetto can stop you in your tracks and make the hairs on your body feel like bayonets.” Jeff Weiss, Passion of the Weiss / LA Weekly

Dipping back into his roots, new EP ‘Rites’ is a blazing return, one underpinned by that sense of gospel communion. Future soul with an R&B twist, it’s powerful songwriting that offers a glimpse of extremes. Clash Magazine

TOLLIVER has the angel and devil on his shoulders with succulent new offering “Twisted” The Line of Best Fit

Extremely different. Extremely good. Tolliver should be chosen as the star of the hour because he created with his “Rites” EP more than a reverberating marvel. e1nenhabichnoch

Masterfully built out of pulsing vocal samples and swelling synths, creating a bed for his soft but striking voice, it is the work of an artist ready to be lauded. Complete Music Update

July 31, 2020 – Emerging Alternative R&B artist Tolliver’s new EP ThinBlackDuke is out now along with the music video to the single “Drugs in College”. Watch the music video here.

Tolliver says, “ThinBlackDuke is a party record about guilt. It’s about the feeling put upon me by the world, while acknowledging – and sometimes reveling in – all fuckboi behavior that gets me mired in bs. The EP plays like a tide. The tide comes in, my confidence rises – “Petty,” “Drugs in College,” “Owe Me Money.” The tide rolls out – “Agape,” “Swing My Way.” Sonically it’s a pop record with R&B and gospel overtones, churchy-ass harmonies, and confessional lyrics over slickly-produced tracks meant for banging at the bar mitzvah, the club, and the chiropractor’s office.”

He continues about the single “Drugs In College” saying, “This is a Candyland dream for those who like to get high without ever coming down. Why repent when you can indulge? Why wake up when you could sleep through it all? Why drink water when there’s a drink sitting right next to you? How convenient! The song glorifies addiction as a means of taking away the power of said addictions, giving in to relieve the tension of trying to hold off. Commit crimes, destroy private property, do all the destructive things you’re scared to do but secretly would love to.”

Written and recorded with all-star production team The Architects (Miguel, Alicia Keys) – ThinBlackDuke, is equal parts unbridled hedonism and morning-after regret, a conflicted party record that blurs the lines between soul, funk, R&B, and hip-hop as it grapples with sex and jealousy, money and betrayal, self-doubt and self-control. Tolliver, whose bisexual identity and appetite for debauchery are frequently at odds with his strict religious upbringing, writes with a keen observational eye and lacerating wit. His lyrics are raw and unfiltered, at times hilarious, but there’s a swift undercurrent of guilt that flows just beneath the surface.

New Noise Magazine Reveals Plasma Canvas Track-By-Track for KILLERMAJESTIC

New Noise Magazine Reveals Plasma Canvas KILLERMAJESTIC Track-By-Track

New Noise Magazine published a track-by-track for the new Plasma Canvas release KILLERMAJESTIC, which drops June 12, 2020.

Read the article here at New Noise Magazine.

 

Track-By-Track: Plasma Canvas – KILLERMAJESTIC

Plasma Canvas also unveiled a new video for the track “Saturn.” Fans can listen to “Saturn” as well as read a Q+A with the band over on Flood Magazine.
Fans can find “Saturn” here: https://found.ee/RDea

“Saturn” follows the release of “Firecracker,” which debuted with Brooklyn Vegan and can be streamed here and on Spotify and Apple Music.
KILLERMAJESTIC was produced by punk rock hero, Bill Stevenson, who has been an original member of the band Descendents since their inception. He has also produced albums for bands like Rise Against, NOFX and The Lemonheads.
“KILLERMAJESTIC” kicks off with a visceral scream. It’s a burst of pure, primal emotion that sounds like vocalist/guitarist Adrienne Rae Ash’s actual throat is escaping from her body into the big, bad world outside. A blistering re-recording of a song from the band’s 2016 debut album, it’s a bold mission statement that reasserts who Plasma Canvas is now, and what the band is all about. Even more forceful and raw than the original recording –which captured all the angst, frustration and confused emotions that were swirling around inside Ash’s mind and heart until she came out as trans in 2015 –it firmly reasserts the powerful identity of the band.

“That scream came from the fact that it was the first album I had gotten to do completely on my own,” says Ash. “It was the first time I’d ever put together a full record of any kind with any band. I’d been out as a trans woman for a couple of years at that point, so I felt like I’d been standing on a springboard for the first 25 years of my life, and when we recorded that song it was all of it coming out at the same time. When we re-tracked it, I knew that it had to be that intense. I wanted it to feel like what accepting your transness feels like, which is terrifying. It’s like you’ve had someone holding your head under water for your entire life, and then you finally get up the strength to release yourself and take a deep breath and scream really loud.”
___
Joined by drummer Jude McCarron, the Fort Collins punk rock duo has only begun to share a sense of empowerment and catharsis that can be found on the EP’s five tracks. As much as it’s an insight into what Ash’s day-to-day existence is like, it also serves as a portrait of being a marginalized person in the USA in 2020. As such, even though these songs aren’t explicitly political, they are also inherently political, because, as Ash points out on the band’s Facebook page, for her, even just existing is an act of rebellion.

“This album was birthed by a rude awakening,” says Nahko. “Amidst a series of sudden harsh changes, I found myself embarking on a quest for help with a fierce desire to heal, and writing these songs was my therapy. They’re deeply personal; the most I’ve shared about my personal journey of self love to date, and, true to my nature, there is joyous victory that blankets the most painful topics. Take Your Power Back is a mindset and mantra. It means being accountable, acknowledging traumas, and doing the hard vulnerable work of confronting the shadows.

Take Your Power Back offers a message of hope and healing that resonates even more deeply in 2020. Throughout the album, Nahko faces the challenges that come from self-forgiveness, using music as a balm for healing. Early single “Twisted” celebrates the courage it takes to prioritize self-love, and “Part Problem” is an ode to owning our responsibilities for the paths we choose in life.

The album’s lead single “Lifeguard” is currently in the Top 40 on the AAA chart.
