TOBACCO. “Hungry Eyes” and “Can’t Count On Her”
It’s been a few years since TOBACCO put out new music, but on June 5 the sludge-y metal electronic artist dropped a 7” featuring a distorted experimental cover of Eric Carmen’s “Hungry Eyes” and an equally garbled original tune, “Can’t Count On Her.”

Bindley Hardware Co. “Tulsa Time”
A few years ago, Bindley Hardware Co. recorded a cover of Danny Flowers' “Tulsa Time,” a track that has been performed by Don Williams and Eric Clapton, among others. Then Bindley forgot about it.
“Tulsa Time” tells the story of Greenwood, a successful Black economic hub in Tulsa, Okla. aka "Black Wall Street," which was burnt to the ground by a white mob in 1921. Some members of the mob had been deputized and armed by city officials.
“We are sharing our recording of ‘Tulsa Time' with you now and using the humble platform we have to remind us all that what happened in 1921 should never be forgotten and that #BlackLivesMatter,” reads the band's description on Bandcamp.
