NATHANIEL RATELIFF –...

Nathaniel Rateliff & The Nights Sweats make their long‐awaited return with Tearing at the Seams, a staggering album of rock ’n' soul music. Propelled by driving rhythms, blazing hornplay, and Rateliff’s rowdy, soul drenched vocals, Tearing at the Seams’ 12 tracks crackle with emotion and intensity. From anguished sorrow to ecstatic heights, Rateliff’s expressive tenor is unvarnished on the record’s tender R&B ballads and nitro‐fueled rave‐ups

MINISTRY – AMERIKKKANT

Ministry’s Al Joursengen, the acclaimed pioneer of industrial music, doesn’t muck around, doesn’t sugar-coat, and doesn’t pull punches. He’s highly opinionated, exceptionally well read and articulate on subjects ranging from politics to alien conspiracies to American history to his beloved Chicago Blackhawks/Bulls/White Sox/Bears. He is an avid follower of NASA scientist David S. McKay, ancient civilizations scholar Zecharia Sitchin, astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, and Scottish writer/archaeologist/scientist Graham Hancock. The industrial machine that is Ministry has manufactured immense amounts of sound during its 30+ years of musical artistry. Often associated with ideas and imagery that are easily recognized today, in part because of Jourgensen’s insanely dreaded hair, pitch black attire, vampiric glasses, and exquisite top hat, the band has become incredibly symbolic. Often referred to as one of the founders of Industrial Music, the true outlook of Ministry as well as Jourgensen’s other projects, is far more fluid than just one specific ...
