The politically minded Houston outfit Free Radicals arrives with a new remix album, No State Solution, on May 25th. The record, an out-and-out rejection of corrupt governments, compiles material from the genre-bending outfit’s previous six albums . The outfit’s politics are as wide-ranging as its musical influences, which includes doses of klezmer, ska, punk, Indian music and more. The remixes are the direct result of a collaboration between DJ Sun, a Dutch-born American record producer, DJ and one of the most prolific musicians in Houston, and Free Radicals drummer Nick Cooper. Listen to the first single, “No State Solution (Lacandon remix)” featuring Marcos below.

“With her first album as Petal, Kiley Lotz announced herself as a songwriter with preternatural ability to explore immense love and immense pain. The record was, after all, named Shame, and its slow-burning indie rock songs depicted the trials of caring for others and yourself. But on its successor, Magic Gone, Lotz has swapped shame for a purifying anger, resulting in some of her most powerful and intimate music yet.” Listen to the titled track “Magic Gone” Below.
Wye Oak debuted a new music video for “It Was Not Natural” this week. It’s directed by Dan Huiting.
