Narrows – ‘Painted’

February 29, 2012

0

Hellz yeah bros, Narrows‘ new record, Painted, totally came out today, and from what I’ve gathered from my first listen (which, as I write, is still ongoing), the album fucking RIPS, and totally lives up to its placement on my prestigious ‘albums I’m psyched for‘ list. Heavy, angular riffs, anguished vocals and tight production holding […]

Woo, Mat Cothran, prolific as he is, is back with another Elvis Depressedly EP! I’ve raved about him enough already (here, here and here) so if you read this blog and have yet to check out his tunes, I doubt you ever will. This release, The Glamour Kills EP, features two songs that we had yet to […]

February 15, 2012

So 2012 is in full swing, and I know I probably should’ve posted this before New Year’s, but better late than never I suppose. We’ve already seen extremely rad releases from Walls, Shlohmo, Pyramids + Horseback, Burial, Porcelain Raft, Alcest and more, but these albums are the ones I expect to kick my mind all […]

I wasn’t even aware that legendary, ever-mysterious UK producer Burial had a new EP out until yesterday, incidentally the same day of its release. But lordy lord is Kindred ever good, from the moment the title track’s warped 2-step beat kicks in, right until the end. The three tracks have a combined running time of half […]

For our first mixtape of 2012, we’ve got a nice lil’ playlist by Stavros Giannopoulos, guitarist and co-vocalist of psychedelic doomsters The Atlas Moth, who put out one of last year’s finest metal records in the form of An Ache For the Distance. Not only that, but the dude is also a member of (unfortunately […]

Ceremony – ‘Hysteria’ 7″

February 9, 2012

When Ceremony put out Rohnert Park in 2010, it became abundantly clear that the band had ambition beyond what hardcore could offer them, and it polarised the shit out of fans of their earlier stuff. Yep, musical development, you can hardly expect less from a bunch of punks who love pg.99, Tragedy, Joy Division and Tom Waits […]

Check it out y’all: Henry Laufer, aka Shlohmo‘s Vacation EP comes out tomorrow, but why wait till then when you can get it right here, right now? I got psyched for this when I heard ‘wen uuu’ a couple weeks back, a delicate and typically hazy four minutes that captured my attention immediately with its pretty, glitchy […]
