Fever Ray returns in a diminished capacity with a long-awaited sophomore album.
Industrial duo Street Sects have a new EP titled Rat Jacket on the way via The Flenser. This lead single isn't quite as harsh and loud as much of what was on the outfit's phenomenal debut, End Position, but it's low-key every bit as tortured. Rat Jacket has an October 6 street date.
