Rückwater Go Supernova

Demonstrating their rough sound in previous EP Bonehead, Finnish stoner-rock group Rückwater is about to release their debut album, Supernova. The album provides a mixture from heavy rocking songs to more mellow tunes. The power-trio’s sound comes from heavy riffs combined with two lead singers and a dynamic drummer.

The story of Rückwater started in 2010 when the loudest men in the band Make (vocals/guitar) and Jussi (vocals/bass) hit their stonehead`s together. Make`s brother Jape was a natural choice for drums, after all the brothers have played together for years.

The idea was to just play some covers (Alice In Chains, Pantera etc) and have a good time, but after few jam sessions they was already had some original songs. Playing together just clicked in a natural and groovy way.

In early 2016, their third EP, Bonehead, was recorded live. Recording live is the most natural thing for the band. It makes the record feel more raw, real and dynamic. Frustration about almost everything is maybe the main source for the whole record, you can hear it in the lyrics and the way the band plays.

After the release of Bonehead, Rückwater continued doing little tours like in Baltia and started to plan their next recording session. The idea was to finally make a full length album. The band booked the same studio and sound engineer and started to record Supernova. The album was recorded live, capturing the groove of the band. The album is set to be released on July 23 by Inverse Records.

John Carpenter’s Unclean Spirit

Legendary composer/director John Carpenter has returned with his first non-soundtrack music since 2016’s Lost Themes II. Collaborating again with son Cody Carpenter and godson Daniel Davies, his bandmates and co-composers for the David Gordon Green-directed Halloween films, Carpenter has shared the propulsive new single ‘Skeleton’ and its B-side, the haunting ‘Unclean Spirit’. Both songs are available digitally now and will be released as a deluxe limited-edition 12" with art by Chris Bilheimer on August 28 via Sacred Bones.

The sessions for these songs saw the trio shifting their focus from scoring for the screen and engaging a totally different creative muscle. “It was refreshing to be able to write music that didn’t have to fit to any sort of locked image,” John said. “We also had a specific focus and direction we wanted to follow when working on Halloween, both in terms of mindset and instruments, and being able to return to working without that narrow focus was refreshing. Although working on Halloween didn’t specifically influence any of these new compositions, there is always a honing of craft that must take place when working on a film like Halloween, and our improved skills definitely helped us in writing these songs.”

‘Skeleton’ and ‘Unclean Spirit’ are the first taste of a batch of new music that will eventually yield a Lost Themes III, and with the composers hard at work on the music for Blumhouse’s Halloween Kills and Halloween Ends, there is plenty more music to come. Even for the famously prolific John Carpenter, this might be the most fertile creative period of his life.
