Michigan rings with the sound of music

New music to release this fall

Kabare – “Roaches”

Kabare hails from this very university, with Ferris music industry management senior Patric Germay. As Kabare, Germay has been releasing a steady stream of hip hop tracks and remixes, including contributions to last year’s Ferris State hip hop collaboration. He plans to release his new EP, “Roaches,” on Oct. 11.

I See Stars – “New Demons”

I See Stars is a hardcore electronic band from Warren, that has seen a good deal of success over their seven year career. Their new album, originally slated for mid September release, is now set for Oct. 22, right before the beginning of the bands “Started From The Bottom Now We Here” tour.

The Swellers – “The Light Under Closed Doors”

Covered already in the Torch’s interview with drummer Jonathan Diener, respected punk veterans The Swellers plan to release “The Light Under Closed Doors” on Oct. 29. Billed as a “back to basics” of sorts, the album looks to be chock full of rollicking, stripped down punk. Well-received singles “Becoming Self Aware” and “Should” certainly point in that direction.

Laurel Halo – “Chance of Rain”

Laurel Halo is one of many artists to come out of the music haven of Ann Arbor. Hailing from the area’s rich, more avant garde electronic music scene, Halo touches upon several sub genres, from techno to ambient. As she continues to evolve, so does her releases. Her next step will be “Chance of Rain,” due Oct. 28.

Eminem – “The Marshall Mathers LP 2”

Living Detroit legend Eminem will be following up 2010’s massively successful “Recovery” with a sequel to his most beloved album, 2000’s “The Marshall Mathers LP.” With fans already ablaze over lead single “Berzerk” and its odd video, along with the partnering with video game Call of Duty: Ghosts, all signs point to Marshall Mathers continuing his massive commercial success on Nov. 5.
