During - Birds of Juneau /​​ Big Farmer

Chun­klet In­dus­tries is killing it again with this de­but 7" by a noise rock/​post punk su­per­group, kind of an un­holy trin­i­ty made up of mem­bers of Wil­ful Boys, Spray Paint and Brandy whose sound in­cor­po­rates fa­mil­iar el­e­ments of all three afore­men­tioned groups yet es­chews pre­dictabil­i­ty - with the A-Side giv­ing off that dis­tinct Spray Paint vibe and the oth­er track veer­ing a bit stronger to­wards the oth­er two bands' son­ic hall­marks. To make things even bet­ter, we're al­so promised a full length some­time this fall!

Pigeon - Deny All Knowledge Of Complicity

With the Berlin group's 2018 self-ti­tled full length be­ing their most var­ied, play­ful record and the sub­se­quent Bug EP their loud­est, most un­com­pro­mis­ing one, their sec­ond long play­er re­cent­ly re­leased via adagio830 cer­tain­ly show­cas­es their most con­cise, ef­fec­tive and elab­o­rate bun­dle of songs so far. Once again i'm re­mind­ed of pret­ty much any great post punk act of re­cent years both in- and out­side Berlin. Think Neg­a­tive Space, Pret­ty Hurts, Rank/​Xerox, Diät, Pub­lic Eye, Ex­it Group, Nag… the list could go on and on. In oth­er words: First rate shit!

Pizza Boys - A La Mierda con Papa John's​.​.​. Acá Están Los Pizza Boys

In a week al­ready pret­ty heavy on egg-re­lat­ed re­leas­es, all that's left for me to say about this de­but EP is that the good egghead gospel seems to have reached the right­eous peo­ple of Chile at last and that fact alone fills my heart with so much joy - of course al­so helped by this be­ing such a fun lit­tle record.

Mainframe - Employee /​ RIP

Yet an­oth­er Good­bye Boozy 7" by a trio whose line­up is the stuff wet dreams of today's dis­tin­guished garage-, synth- and egg­punk con­nois­seur are made of, in­clud­ing con­nec­tions to Skull Cult and rough­ly half of the Warttman em­pire. The re­sults are rather unsurprising…ly awe­some!
