Last.fm premiered He is Legend’s latest song, “Spout Mouth,” from their upcoming Heavy Fruit. (It’s not the first they’ve released.) Vocalist Schuylar Croom spoke with the website:

Last.fm You have 138k listeners & 5.5 million plays amongst our site users: ‘The Seduction’ is still the overall #1 most listened to track amongst the Last.fm community. How does that make you feel?
Croom I don’t know, I don’t really think about it. Like it makes me wonder if people just see that it’s the most played song so they listen to that one first and that’s keeps it the number one song. People don’t really buy full albums and absorb them anymore. They go on streaming pages and listen to song with the most plays usually. I’m really glad people like it, though.

Heavy Fruit comes out Aug. 19.

My Epic performing their last final show before COVID-19

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.

Comrades 2020

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.

HM Magazine Turns 35

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.
