Torche – ‘Harmonicraft’

April 19, 2012

0

It’s hard to believe it’s been four years since Torche put out their last full-length, 2008’s Meanderthal, an album I now consider one of my all time favourites. You can imagine my excitement, then, when I got my grubby little hands all over the band’s new record, their third: Harmonicraft. I’m listening to it for the first time right […]

Graf Orlock – ‘Los Angeles’ EP

April 15, 2012

3

One of my main beefs with so-called “extreme” metal is the fact that so many of such bands seem to lack anything resembling even a minute sense of humour, a fact which I think has contributed to a significant change in my listening habits. It’s not that I insist on listening to strictly “positive” music […]

Black Breath – ‘Sentenced to Life’

March 28, 2012

Awww yeaaaah…  that crusty death metal bruisers Black Breath were putting out a new full-length this year was something that’d completely passed me by, a fact I’ll never be able to forgive myself for considering how crushingly rad 2010’s Heavy Breathing was and continues to be. The album ranked in my top 5 for that year, […]

Real Estate – ‘Easy/Exactly Nothing’ Single

March 20, 2012

‘Easy’ is one of the highlights off of Days, Real Estate‘s totally rad 2011 album, which, in case I haven’t mentioned it, took the top spot on my best of the year list. Good news for me then, because the band just put the song out as a single, backed by ‘Exactly Nothing’, a lovely track that […]

OFWGKTA – ‘The OF Tape, Vol. 2’

March 17, 2012

0

Yeah, Tyler, The Creator and the majority of his fanbase are beyond irritating and much of what initially seemed so fresh and interesting about OFWGKTA has basically devolved into little more than an entertaining gimmick, but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t curious as to what this, the second OF tape, would sound like. […]

Main Attrakionz – ‘cLOUDLIFE’ EP

March 5, 2012

2

I’m actually somewhat surprised that the collaboration at hand, between “cloud rap” forerunners Main Attrakionz and Anticon visionary Jel and associate Zachg hasn’t happened earlier. There’s an undeniable link between MA duo Squadda Bambino and Mondre M.A.N.’s hazy, ambient rap tracks and the strong experimental streak distinctive of so much of the Anticon label’s output, so it’s about time […]

EXCLUSIVE: Elvis Depressedly – ‘Survivor’s Guilt’

March 1, 2012

So we’ve got something special lined up for what must be our millionth Mat Cothran-related post: one of three unreleased Elvis Depressedly tracks, to be played on college radio at some point. The song in question, ‘Survivor’s Guilt’, is a heartbreaking, all too short vocals + acoustic guitar piece, with Cothran’s voice having a pretty […]
