new Jack single "A Kick A Knife" + new album 3/1

we're thrilled to announce that we're working with Buffalo NY's Jack, on their new record Alchemical Rounds, due out 3/1. the first song off of the record, "A Kick A Knife" premiered today via Stereogum -- and its an absolute do not miss.

James Rettig says: It’s a breathtaking expanse, and Costa’s voice is a fierce weapon that’s both defiant and weary. “There’s this big great feeling/ That there’s more than just accepting,” she sings. “A lie of a life you’re tired of living/ A sad voice in your mind you stop believing.” The song peaks and valleys with a magnificent chugging, like the grinding of an old machine, and whenever it threatens to collapse on its own weight, Costa pulls back just before the breaking point.

You can hear the song below, and read the rest of the piece here:
