On Ramonda Hammer's searing debut LP I Never Wanted Company, front-woman Devin Davis takes a hard look at her struggle between despairing loneliness and embracing independence. The Los Angeles quartet’s blistering guitars and Davis’s paint-peeling vocals – recalling past greats like Hole and likeminded contemporaries like Mannequin Pussy – form the support for lyrics that grapple with two years of emotional upheaval for Davis. Since the band released their 2017 EP Destroyers, a release that cemented Ramonda Hammer as a tentpole act in LA’s surging community of woman- and queer-fronted bands, Davis struggled to come to terms with her codependency, fought against her own overwhelming over-analysis, and got into her first queer relationship. The result is an album that’s bruising, cathartic, searching, and ultimately therapeutic. Featuring production by Alex Newport (At The Drive In, Bloc Party), I Never Wanted Company is a powerful and triumphant return for the quartet – including Justin Geter on guitar, Andy Hengl on bass, and Mark Edwards on drums. “No one is coming! No one!” Davis wails at the end of lead single “Hoax”. On its face, it’s a bleak and almost nihilistic statement – but for her, it’s a call to independence. Davis hopes the album will help people who want to take better control over their own lives and emotions. “I’m an anxious person,” she says. “It helps me to play loud rock music with gritty sounds and brash lyrics. Sometimes you to scream to wake people up.”
Hailing from a small inlet island in the Pacific Northwest, Dead Soft is a three-piece band pairing playful, melody-driven rock of the late 90’s with screaming guitars and a voice that shouts in defiance of the status-quo. The band’s new album Big Blue is the culmination of almost three years of recording sessions. With classic power-pop hooks, and huge fuzzed out guitars Big Blue is a big, beautiful record about taking a leap of faith to find the life you want, and the journey to get there. Dead Soft is grunge-punk for the people.
The Atlantic lizardfish (Synodus saurus), is a species of lizardfish that primarily lives in the Eastern Atlantic. The Atlantic lizardfish is known to be found in a marine environment within a general demersal depth range of about 400 meters. They are more specifically found in a depth range of about 20 meters. This species is native to a subtropical climate. The maximum recorded length of the Atlantic lizardfish as an unsexed male is about 40 centimeters or about 15.74 inches. The distribution of this species occupies the areas of Eastern Atlantic, Morocco, Cape Verde, Azores, Mediterranean, Western Atlantic, Bermuda, Bahamas, Lesser Antilles, and the Leeward Islands. This species is mainly known to be found in insular waters and on top of sandy or sand-rock bottoms. The diet of the Atlantic lizardfish mainly includes other species of fish, but it is known to also feed occasionally on other animals. The Atlantic lizardfish can be found occupying waters around islands. The Atlantic lizardfish keeps itself hidden and camouflaged by burrowing itself in the sand. While it is burrowed in the sand, this species reveals his eyes so that it can watch its prey and pounce when food is available.
