Free Hollow(een) Boys EP

If there were such thing as a perfect band for this time of year, we at Vitriol have been lucky enough to hit on two that are great for the spooky season. One is our newest signing, Graveyard Club. Their slick approach to an otherwise gloomy genre speaks for itself in name alone and adds next week. 

But right now, we're here to talk about Hollow Boys. The guys and girl in the band have a sound that would fit along in any Hallow's Eve party mix, without hitting you over the head with it. And to embrace that fact, they'll celebrate today with a free EP over at their Bandcamp. 

The 4 song collection features all music from Twin Peaks, which couldn't make us any happier than if it came with a Log Lady costume. As the band themselves said, "listen to it loud and slowdance alone." Or with whatever wooden object you hold dear. 

AroarA track premiere at Interview

The blog/magazine world is just starting to catch on to what radio has known for a minute here - that AroarA's debut recordings are a thing of beauty and to be shared wherever possible. The online home of one of our favorite mags out there features an exclusive premiere of "13" off of Andrew Whiteman (Broken Social Scene, Apostle of Hustle) and Ariel Engle (Hydra)'s new EP. The work features the left-field poetry of Alice Notley, who wrote her masterful work while under treatment for Hepatitis C. Check out the feature and stream of the track here, which Interview calls "something suspended and lovely, like wandering through a fully furnished but long-abandoned room." Pretty much nailed it, guys. 

Blacklist Royals POZ interview

Blacklist Royals wickedly catchy new album, "Die Young With Me" hits radio today and there has already been a barrage of great press coming down the wire, much of which will be shared in coming weeks. The first, which you can check out here, is an extensive interview the guys did in the little downtime they had in between shows at this years SXSW. 

The interview discusses the deeply personal turn their new music has taken, centering around Rob's childhood battle with cancer and how it affected both the brothers. It also covers the process that led them to completely re-record the album and finding a new home for the record and band with long-time Vitriol client, Krian Music. Check out the article and album, at radio now and in stores in June.
