Revolver: Debut Of A Deer A Horse’s “Smokejumper”

New York City–based trio A Deer A Horse sit musically somewhere between the Melvins, Helms Alee, Red Fang and Sleater-Kinney, combining guitar fireworks with striking melodic vocals in a way that’s spirited and muscular.

Flood Magazine: Uncle Meg Honors World Bipolar Day with “Take Me Away” Video

After announcing the follow-up to his 2016 LP Bug with a cover of Yung Lean’s “Yoshi City,” Uncle Meg is sharing the first single from his forthcoming Butterfly EP on World Bipolar Day. This is not a coincidence—immediately after releasing Bug, Meg changed his gender pronouns and began medical transition, resulting in a confusing few years for the young rapper. “Take Me Away” directly addresses this transition and the effect it had on his mental health, despite the track’s smooth beat and its video’s warm cinematography.
