bands on tour, new(ish) music, and yes, oceanic metal on KEEW in July

Our post-Canada Day Kill Eat Exploit the Weak previewed the early summer Agalloch tour and looked back at some of the under-appreciated releases of 2014 so far (following some tips from Last Rites' The Best of What You Missed feature). We also sampled some of Hellbound's Canadian picks for this year (and other years ending in 4).

In the midst of the previous week's show, the hot humid July weather inspired us to put together a cooling water-themed KEEW. It turned out to be way easier (and harder - in terms of narrowing the selections down) than we had imagined. The results are documented in the playlist below.
