We posted about Jesse Sprinkle’s new band, Vekora, earlier last month when they were known as The Resonance. They’ve since changed their name and are now pursuing their goal to record their debut album. You can jam their track, “Lapse,” below.

As Sprinkle says to HM:

It’s really great to be in a band that I love. Haven’t had that feeling for many years. Now, we have Derri Daugherty from The Choir engineering the album and Terry Taylor producing, which is the exact same team from the first Poor Old Lu album. I love it.

If you’re interested, check out the fundraiser on Kickstarter, or donate if your heart desires.

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.

In 1985, Doug Van Pelt photocopied a letter-sized sheets of paper, bound them together, and handed them out in person on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin. It's all digital now, but, along the way, Van Pelt stirred up quite a few waves, played some seriously heavy music, and made a few friends along the way. Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.
