Illinois’ Marcos Ortega, better known by his stage name Lorn just dropped a video for the track Timesink from his niche experimental 7th full-length LP Drown The Traitor Within. The video features a caption that says, “Shot in Fall of 2019 pre COVID-19. We hope you all stay safe, and spend this time with your loved ones in the midst of this global pandemic.” The Pavel Brenner directed music video shows a lone boy riding a bike through a deserted and eerily peaceful forest road. He dodges a range of abandoned vehicles and a roadblock where nature is reasserting itself after a widespread disease that wiped out humanity. The video ends with him coming across two elks. His right eye bleeds but he continues to cycle through the road. Watch. Advertisements

Leya, the Brooklyn based duo of harpist Marilu Donovan and violinist Adam Markiewicz, just dropped their second full-length album Flood Dream. Their obscure combination of violin and detuned harp with a bit of influence from pre-Baroque chamber music is absolutely haunting and charming at the same time. The duo’s first album, The Fool, released in 2018, was a glimmer of ambiguous motif they have elegantly conferred on this 2020 project. Flood dream is perplexing and it stays like that even after a few listen.
