So-and-so is releasing a new five-track EP in a few months, your problematic fave dropped a pretty risque new video and that washed up band that no one has even thought of for a good decade now, has decided to reunite and head out on a world tour. These are the things I need to post at a fervent pace, to not only keep up with the over-saturated blogosphere, but to harness the steady stream of emails that will inevitably continue their high-pressured pursuit into my inbox all hours of the day for the remainder of the week, (and probably on the weekend too, depending on the publicist.)

So to combat the rat-race, we're offering a content compromise in the form of our new daily column, Live From The Gutter - an afternoon recap of the day's press releases and the contents of my 405 email.

Run River North share new video for 'Run or Hide' and announce album

Not only have LA-based indie-rockers Run River North released new visuals for their latest single 'Run or Hide,' but the band has announced that they have a new album coming. Drinking From A Salt Pond will be out on January 20 2017 in the UK, and follow up 2014's acclaimed self-titled debut. "This album embodies, more distinctly, the voices of each member of the band. The first album was about my view of family, home and the world and the rest of the band responding to these stories. This album is everyone's individual responses to our collective self-reflection - with each member speaking through their respective instruments to express the relationships within the band rather than my folk stories wrapped in harmonies and swells," says lead singer Alex Hwang.
