Portugal’s Sinistro returns with its trademark austere, emotionally-charged brand of dark, atmospheric rock. “Pétalas”, culled from the outfit’s album, Sangue Cassia, slated for a North American release of 5 January 2018, spotlights Patricia Andrade’s unmistakable vocals, as she further distinguishes herself as a formidable presence. Her deeply emotional and highly resonant delivery will invariably draw comparisons to Portishead’s Beth Gibbons, but she also proves those comparisons will be short-lived. With this release, she shows that she is far more an innovator than follower.

“What do you do when a dream becomes a lie?” is the central question of “When Cinderella Dies”, the latest single off 21st Century World (2017) by singer-songwriter Bruce Sudano. Produced by Mike Montali (lead singer of Hollis Brown), the song is among the highlights on Sudano’s sixth, self-penned solo album. Director Katherine Paige renders the story to haunting effect through glimpses of insidiously surreal imagery, glued together by Audra Bryant’s powerful dance performance.
