Pup- “Anaphylaxis” (Rise)
Toronto punks PUP aren’t going to let any quarantine keep them from ripping it up. One-off single “Anaphylaxis” finds the band in the same riotous mode from last year’s Morbid Stuff. The cut is a speedy, pop-punk cavalcade of shredding guitars and head pounding backbeat about hypochondria, maybe? Whatever it is, it rocks. You can hear it now on Music Choice’s Indie channel.
Pup’s been taking to their socials to do playthroughs of their songs so fans can learn how to shred along!
Calboy- “Wild Wild” (RCA)
Chicago rapper/crooner Calboy ain’t chilling. On “Wild Wild” from his 2020 EP Long Live the Kings he’s going hard after everything he wants. We’re talking foreign cars, stacking “pesos,” and the fairer sex. Over the smacking, slinky jetsonmade beat Calboy nimbly moves from spitting to singing while nonstop crafting lovely melodies. You can hear “Wild Wild” right now on MC’s Hip-Hop and R&B channel.
Calboy’s been putting out calls on his social media for fans to send him beats!

A CHECK IN WITH MYSELF. —— Charlie took this picture of me a few weeks into quarantine. That was like 5 me’s ago. Like 3 cases of wine & 470 emptied dishwashers ago. But same sweatshirt. Always. HIGHS —— discovering that one insta filter that makes your teeth glow and gives you an instatan, opening the curtains to Kansas sunrises, the first shoulder sunburn of 2020, long long runs around the lake, daily/hourly/constant affirmation that we were meant to retreat here. LOW —— an hour ago when I ordered a pizza from the gas station and declared that no one is to leave the playroom until bedtime. ?
