The Daily Pulse:

Music From This Week's Issue: June 13

• In this week's issue, I interviewed Richmond, Va., doom metal band Windhand, who are playing at Pilot Light with Generation of Vipers next week. Soma, the follow-up to the band's 2012 debut, is scheduled for release in September; for now, the band has two new tracks available on Reflection of the Negative, a split EP with fellow Richmond metalheads Cough. Stream the gigantically heavy  "Amaranth" from the split below.   

Windhand plays at Pilot Light on Thursday, June 20, at 10 p.m. Admission is $5 and 18 and up. 

• I also review Re-Mit, the 30th album by the legendary British postpunk band the Fall. There's nothing from the album available to stream--and the album's not very good, anyway--so here's a clip of the band performing "Totally Wired," my favorite Fall song, from 1982. 

• We've also got two reviews of new local music in this week's issue. Jack Neely considers the new Hudson K album, Orouboros and the Black Dove, and Mike Gibson gets mixed results from the Reigns Band's The Turnaround
