The song “White Flag” by Slutever (the grunge-pop duo of Rachel Gagliardi and Nicole Snyder, not the blogger) is about the feeling of restless in Philadelphia. This ice cream and firework-filled video celebrates Los Angeles, the current hometown of the duo. Follow the pair as they bum around Venice Beach with their girl gang …
Elevator Mag also had some cool words to say about the new SLUTEVER video and as noted you can grab “White Flag” on a flexi right here!
Malegoat are an emo band from Hachioji, Tokyo, and one of the forerunners for the emo revival scene in Japan. Consisting of members Yosuke Sato (Vocals,Guitar), Masaru Tanabe (Guitar), Hajime Kishino (bass), and Jun Kawakita (drums). In 2010 they released their debut full length To Face The Music on Stiff Slack records.
If you haven’t heard of Stiff Slackthey’re an independent record label mainly responsible for getting emo from the states to Japan and spreading Japanese emo to the states. Much like how Meatcube label and Keep It Together records do the same in America.
The reason for the focus on eastern/western emo cooperation is based on Malegoat (deemed the “Japanese Algernon”) teaming up with the split addicted Empire! Empire! (I Was a Lonely Estate) (love you guys) last year. The split includes 4 tracks and the two Malegoat songs are genius. Although not as intense and emotionally jarring as Plan Infiltration these two songs are lyrically poetic enough to rival empire! empire!.
At the moment I am not entirely sure if Malegoat are preparing to release anything else but seeing as this was put out in 2013 they are still going strong. This is the standout track Call Down.
