Ben Dehan is an artist from Baltimore that has recently really caught our attention. He writes music you can connect to on an emotional level, akin to Third Eye Blind or Jimmy Eat World. Littered with moments of Catharsis, Joy, and Introspection, his music becomes a life soundtrack. As the guitarist of American Diary, Ben got his start on the Vans Warped Tour alongside bands like Angels and Airwaves, The Academy Is, and Matisyahu. Since then, he has spent countless hours writing and honing a sound that’s both accessible and intelligent and has begun releasing music and playing shows.
His newest song is called, “Miss Cacophony” and Ben says, “The song is about using our limited time on this planet to do something meaningful to ourselves and in turn, contribute something greater to the world.” The song combines elements of alternative, pop and even a bit of EDM. Ben’s music makes us think of some of the memories of the best time of our lives when listening. Check out the track below.

Queer duo Witch Weather discuss new album and the influence of the DMV on their sound.
Philadelphia-based queer punks Witch Weather have a message for anyone who feels hopeless and worthless: you are not alone. With an irresistible sound that draws from 80’s goth and lo-fi grunge, the indie duo wears their heart on their sleeve, giving voice to complex emotions that many would opt to suppress in the recesses of their minds.
Join Alchemical Records as they connect with Witch Weather to discuss the band’s new self-titled album, their search for a sense of belonging as members of the queer community, the important element that keeps the duo’s creative bond strong, and the influence of the DMV on their sound.
