Angelica Garcia – “Karma The Knife”
Unflinching new Latinx artist Angelica Garcia has just announced her debut London show at The Lexington for 24th October 2019, as well as unveiling the striking visuals for the recently released track “Karma The Knife.” Punching through with psychedelic animated visuals alongside Angelica’s primary colour electro-pop, the video is yet another bold step forward for this tantalizing new talent.
Angelica describes “Karma The Knife”:
It’s about knowing the difference between human error and malintent, and how everything we do in life comes back around to haunt us. My friend Nate Griffith and I made this video at this house using a green screen. We both have a love for the absurd, and aspired to make something fun and kooky like the song.

Spacebomb House Band – V: Gold-Toothed & Lonesome
Sleepwalkers’ new album ‘Ages,’ out now
Today, Sleepwalkers release their new album, Ages. Ages is a bona fide party record that is able to convey a mood of bittersweet elation through a series of well-aimed emotional arcs. The follow-up to their ‘60s fanstasia, cult-favorite debut, Greenwood Shade (2014), it’s a maximalist pop masterpiece that feels equally effortless, backed by the band’s facility with the structures and language of pop music.
A pop record at its core, Ages wouldn’t be complete without fuzzed-out melodies and lush instrumentation that allows for plenty of repeat listens without ever failing to capture the listener’s attention. – RVA Magazine
Sleepwalkers’s music is a guaranteed prescription for joyful hope – Blurred Culture
tunes unfold like a birthday card, splashes of effervescent sentiment, bright-colored reverence and warm supportive details – Maximum Ink
fun, addictive and upfront. This is quite the introduction – Podcart
lovable – Last Day Deaf
In short, it’s music that makes me like music more. – You Hear That
a fine and refreshing blend of old-school melodies and contemporary touches creating something amazing – Wolf In A Suit
