-M.A.G.S. is the solo moniker for Buffalo-bred, Los Angeles-based artist Elliott Douglas. His style seamlessly glides between genres -- from funky garage to minty alt-pop -- and hooks you in almost immediately. His universal appeal feeds his success, and it's never at the expense of his art. Elsewhere in his blossoming catalog, songs like "Mvp" and "Hi Tops" zig-zag from visceral, gnarly heavy metal to lo-fi folk-rock, respectively; his musicianship is a marvel to witness, each entry building on the last with refreshing acrobatics. M.A.G.S. released his first solo record in 2015, an EP titled Cellophane, and his self-titled LP arrived two years later -- securing a seat amongst the most prominent indie/alt-rock artists. With his new batch of music, Douglas displayed marked growth in vocal prowess, overall musicality and lyrical bite through the release of 2020's Lost Tapes EP. M.A.G.S.' debut album, Say Things That Matter, came out August 13th, 2021, with leading singles "Smile." "Sunrise," "Choked Out," "Beg" and "Wait" out now.

-Josh Shaw has always been a weird Black kid trying to find a place where he belongs. With his debut album as Blvck Hippie, he’s on his way to make the Indie Rock world that place. “If You Feel Alone at Parties” is a brutally honest and heart-wrenching look into the mind and heart of Josh Shaw. Recorded mostly over a 3 day weekend in Memphis, TN, “If You Feel Alone At Parties” takes a deep dive into the difficult themes of escapism, grief, and trauma. Instantly catchy guitar licks weave in and out of Josh’s gritty vocals accenting the vulnerability of the lyrics. The album digs you into the deepest crevices of despair and leads you out the only way that makes sense… screaming along in a desperate attempt to find a catharsis when it all feels like too much.
