Into It. Over It. – ‘Proper’

September 28, 2011


So the new IIOI dropped yesterday, and like everything he does the album is of an extremely high standard and consistency.  ‘Proper’ continues along the lines of Weiss’ branded indie/90’s emo/pop sound that all his fans have come to love, and if you’ve enjoyed his previous releases then I gaurantee you will like this.  ‘Where Your […]

Starflyer 59 – ‘Fell in Love at 22’

September 27, 2011


“Christian rock”. The phrase is really all you need to get the stankiest of music nerds frothing at the mouth with wrath, and, I gotta say, there’s times when the concept irks me too. Take, for example, the hilariously clichéd picture of LA-based churchgoer dudes Starflyer 59, above. Look how contemplative they are! Sigh, but […]

Mount Kimbie – ‘Crooks & Lovers’

September 25, 2011


Saw these guys live at Black Rabbit festival a week or two back, and it was amazing.  Unfortunately, I had to skip out early so I could take the metro home, but I think I saw the majority, and it was truly excellent.  Very underappreciated here in Shanghai (the majority of the festival attendants were […]

Wormrot – ‘Noise’

September 25, 2011


I know, I know, so Scion already put this out for free, blah blah blah. But what better way to stick it to the corporate pigs than by downloading Wormrot‘s fresh new EP, Noise, from our humble blog instead? Take THAT, system! For real though, this release is some Grade A shit, proving once again […]

Real Estate – ‘Green Aisles’

September 24, 2011


I thought I couldn’t get more excited about the new Real Estate album when I heard ‘It’s Real’, but with ‘Green Aisles’, they’ve proved me very, very wrong. The increased production value is, surprisingly, a huge boost to their, uh, beach-y, laid back tunes, and the song itself is excellent. It’s slower and more melancholy […]

La Dispute – ‘Wildlife’

September 23, 2011


Not much to say.  Download this now.   Not sure when it  leaked but yeah it’s awesome and even if it wasn’t it’s La Dispute and they are so awesome and cute.  Because of my lack of wordpress knowledge, I need to write more here so it doesn’t look shit on the home page, so this […]

Torche – ‘Exit Flyer’ [Guided By Voices Cover]

September 20, 2011


Download the full EP HERE Few things make me more excited than an upcoming Torche release, so you can imagine my delight when it was announced yesterday that everyone’s favourite doom-pop band is releasing a split covers EP with English noisemongers Part Chimp, on November 5th. Torche is using the release to highlight their apparent […]
