Artist: Pictureplane Track: "Goth Star" Album: Dark Rift Listen

This is a totally gnarly, broken, gleefully nihilistic release from one of the best sound crushers on tour. (That tour, sadly, doesn't come to town.) His name is Travis Edgey, and he's pretty weird. Get used to it, because you'll be hearing more of his trashed soundscapes soon, when big-time stars ask him to destroy their singles.

His upcoming full-length, Dark Rift, drops Aug. 4 on Lovepump United.
