Tummyache Releases Emotionally Charged "Humpday"

Exploring the absurdity of the human condition.

Meet Tummyache, the alt-rock project of singer-songwriter Soren Bryce, who recently released an EP entitled Humpday.

Named after a side effect of physical anxiety, Tummyache delves into the deep end of life, where meaning is fugitive and hope is a castle in the air.


Comprising five tracks, highlights on the EP include "Machine," "Median," and the title track. There's a piercing angular edge to the tunes, and Tummyache's haunting voice adds even more depth to the music.

Humpday is music moving to its own emotional matrix – or does the motion of the matrix generate the music? Whichever is true, Tummyache's music is a superb listening experience.

Grimes Is Selling a Piece of Her Soul, Because of Course She Is

You can bid on a legal document that grants you ownership of a percentage of Grimes' soul.

Grimes, who birthed both a studio album and her first son earlier this year, isn't letting a world in shambles keep her from Grimesing on. She's now dabbling into fine art too, making her debut in simultaneous online exhibitions on Gallery Platform Los Angeles (May 28 through June 3) and Maccarone Los Angeles (May 28 through Aug. 31). The show is called Selling Out and features a piece also called "Selling Out" that contains part of Grimes' soul.
