Bison (B.C.) – You Are Not the Ocean You Are the Patient

In Europe, July 7th in North America

You are not the ocean. You do not orchestrate a beautiful cacophony of life and death, struggle and destruction, creation and dependence. You are not the sole reason for the existence of a nation of creatures to live and abide your stark and simple rules. You are not married to the moon. You do not allow the constellations to be your map. You do not destroy cities and drown their citizens. You do not embrace land’s golden hem as your child, with calm and tenderness. You do not crash and spray craggy shores with fury and passion. You are not unstoppable. You are not powerful. You are not necessary. (The Monolith)

New Swears – And the Magic of Horses

[New Swears] come from humble beginnings, forming in 2012 when all four members (Scru Bar, Sammy J. Scorpion, Beej Eh, and Nick Nofun) shared a room and ran a notorious DIY venue they called the Fun Boy Club House. The space also accommodated two bars, a mini skateboard ramp, rodent infestations and, by all accounts, was the scene of some pretty raucous live shows before they abandoned it in 2014.
