Waxwing – ‘Nobody Can Take What Everybody Owns’

July 31, 2011

0

While emo isn’t really my department, Waxwing‘s Nobody Can Take What Everybody Owns is one of my favourite releases in the genre; showcasing a more refined, mature approach to songwriting than a lot of their peers. While the lyrics leave a lot to be desired, it’s the vocals that do a lot to set this band […]

Realm Reality – ‘God Of War’ + ‘The Invisible Man’

Rick Gonzalez is definitely better known for his acting.  The only movie that comes to mind for me that he’s been in is Coach Carter (which coincidentally is a fucking amazing movie in my opinion), but he’s been in a bunch of other stuff that I can’t be fucked to go on IMDB to name. […]

For the second, and hopefully one of the last, apologies for my absence lately, it’s summer and with it brings the fun of family vacation.  The good news is i’m back until tuesday (night), so for a few days I can blog the SHIT out of the internet.  Unfortunately, the bad news is I leave […]

V/A – ‘This Comp Kills Fascists’, Vol. 1 & 2

July 30, 2011

I love Scott Hull. Not only is he the driving force behind both Pig Destroyer and Agoraphobic Nosebleed, but he masterminded both volumes of This Comp Kills Fascists, two of the most important grind/hardcore/powerviolence releases in the last ten years; a total of 125 tracks (in a little over two hours) of the fastest, heaviest, most […]

Gaza – Discography + Bird Eater – ‘Utah’

July 29, 2011

There are few bands in this world whose discographies are truly worth owning, and Gaza is one of them. While their output to date is limited, unfortunately, to three releases, all offer increasingly more developed blends of their truly hellish, dissonant take on grind/hardcore. While there are a handful of bands working in a similar territory […]

Cities Aviv – ‘Digital Lows’

So my good friend Timothy hooked me up with this today.  Quite rightly, he pointed out the lack of hip-hop on this site, and together we brainstormed and came up with the following ideas to amend the situation: 1.  I will post some hip-hop 2. Tim will post some hip-hop Starting soon (hopefully), Tim will […]

1994! / Algernon Cadwallader / Snowing / Boys & Sex – ‘Summer Singles’

Yeah, this came out mid-may, but i wasn’t blogging back then and given the caliber of bands this split has, I think it’s still worth posting.  I was only just reminded of this when it came up on my shuffle 20 minutes ago, and thank you itunes because the songs are really great.  If you’re […]
