Lower are releasing an album Seek Warmer Climes on June 27 through Matador. “Every song on the record deals in some way with personal development, be it emotional or cosmetic,” said frontman Adrian Toubro. “How to act in different social contexts, and to acclimatize oneself to a given situation without losing face. The ambition is to express the internal and external influences that make a human, to the truest degree possible.

"Lost Weight, Perfect Skin" is the debut single. The band will be playing at 1-2-3-4 Go! Records on May 22.

Director Lee Stringle created an animated version of Hieronymous Bosch’s paintings, including “The Garden of Earthly Delights” and “Christ Carrying the Cross” in this video for the new Odonis Odonis single, “Order in the Court,” off their album Hard Boiled Soft Boiled, out April 15 on Buzz Records.

"The Garden of Earthly Delights" is the most well-known of Flemish Primitive painter Hieronymous Bosch. It is a triptych composed of paradise, purgatory, and hell, and it was the subject of my high school art history thesis paper.
