Without question, one of the greatest strengths of Riff Relevant, or any music website that dares to do so, is to crush divisive elitist mindsets within said music coverage. Many sites tailor make themselves into cookie cutter-like, color by number spots that only cater to one style or genre of music.
Personally, I think that’s boring and I’m pretty sure that Leanne (Ridgeway, Owner/Chief Editor) and my fellow RR staffers share the sentiment. Sure, we may not all like the same stuff, but dammit, we aren’t afraid to cover a variety of stuff either. It’s all about YOU and what YOU may really like, be it ‘mainstream’, somewhat known, underground, or completely obscure.
That said, we’re bringing you the stream of the new Powerman 5000 album “New Wave” today. The techno industrial-melded, alternative rock / nu metal release will drop via Pavement Entertainment on October 27th.
The band also just shared their new official video for the song “David Fucking Bowie” which can be found below also.
Here it is now for your listening pleasure, thanks to Soundcloud and our own refusal to acknowledge perceived boundaries. Enjoy!
