True Widow's stoner-rock and shoegaze mix trudges with back-breaking heft. Turn it up on a good pair of speakers or headphones, and "Four Teeth" rattles like a heavier bummer jam from Neil Young's Zuma, complete with one-string guitar solos.
Video and song premieres, breaking news, and our latest musical discoveries.

Festival preparation can be broken into three categories: music, logistics and simple survival.
In an eerie new video from Low, the band plays inside a glitter-filled snow globe, wearing period costumes, while giant, alien creatures look on. It's a strange interpretation of "Plastic Cup," a song ostensibly about a friend's history of drug abuse and dependence on others.
Two Inch Astronaut explodes with a twisted riff and a nasty bass line out of The Dismemberment Plan or Frodus. Reckless and irresponsibly catchy, this is nerd music for who those who plug in.
In this video premiere, Young Galaxy shows an entire city destroyed piece by piece, mixing the apocalyptic chaos with the smooth sounds of "New Summer," a chill electro-pop cut from the band's latest album, Ultramarine.
In a touching new video, singer-songwriter Grant Olney tells the story of a tiny owl ostracized by the other animals. The animated short follows the owl as it tries to find its own way in the world, with the help of a kind woman.
Kwaidan's "The Sound of This Bell" drifts around your brain like a mist of evaporated blood.
The trio has always had grand ambition, dissolving and rebuilding the darker sounds of ambient, noise and metal. Locrian could easily score a Werner Herzog film with this rhythmic, proggy new track.
Autopsy still plays nasty death metal, but "Arch Cadaver" is also a bit of a rock 'n' roll party. Sandwiched between a minute of deranged doom and a left-right-channel guitar-solo face-off, there's a whiskey-swigging, Motorhead-pounding rhythm that boogies at an insane pace.
After weeks of anticipation and cryptic messages the Scottish electronic duo finally shares a new song, and an eerie video.
Mechanical engineer and sculptor Tristan Shone, who records as Author & Punisher, is a master of machines. He's built a robotic entourage — throttles, knobs, rails and all — that responds to MIDI/USB controllers and makes for-real industrial doom metal.
The title may sound explicit, but the new techno track by Laurel Halo keeps things at a tantalizing simmer.
In an absorbing and comical new video, Vermont folksinger Sam Amidon finds himself in some strange woods inhabited by the creatures of his own imagination — including a knobby, human-like tree and a bearded siren.
