Slingshot Dakota is featured on a very cool 7" split that comes out tomorrow via Soft Speak Records, for which they recorded a cover of Rainer Maria's "Rise." We are premiering the cover song in the replies, which is a very chill indie take on the tune that then turns into a slightly-less-chill-but-still-pretty-chill take on the tune when it kicks up a notch near the end. Slingshot Dakota's partner in crime on this split, which benefits Hopeline, an organization focused on suicide prevention and awareness, is Pet Symmetry, one of Emo Mayer Evan Weiss' many bands, whose contribution you can stream here.

If there's one thing we're all familiar with, it's the sentiment that intimate and personal lyricism is a huge part of the music we love to listen to on this website. Chicago-based indie-punk act The Downtown Struts may be an unfamiliar name for most, but their new EP Hope You're Dope, out November 18 via Pirates Press Records, is worth keeping an eye on because of the starkly blunt nature of its content. Frontman Dan Cooper chronicles his battles with bipolar disorder throughout the EP's four tracks, and it makes for a riveting listen because it's rare to see artists open up about such sensitive topics in such big ways.
