Stunning shit as is usually the case with anything featuring Josh Feigert of Atlanta groups such as Uniform, Wymyns Prysyn and, most recently, Glittering Insects. Once again, this record is drenched in that same unmistakable trademark melancholia spread out onto an epic widescreen canvas, which is also at the core of the aforementioned groups. A familiar vibe for sure but there's plenty of room for surprises and unexpected flourishes here as well, like some uncharacteristic flashes of melodicism in songs such as Skyless Bells and Earthtone.Album-Stream →
You know what to expect by now! Satanic Togas never fail to amaze with their catchy, compact garage punk smashers. If Gee Tee is kind of the flower child among Ishka Edmeades numerous groups and projects, Satanic Togas kinda represent the sleazy and hard rocking counterbalance to that fluffy powerpop innocense, delivering a bottomless wealth of catchy hooks and tunes all the same.Album-Stream →
Five minutes of delightful noises and structured chaos crammed into dense little tunes by an israeli group. Equally punishing, quirky and eclectic shit right in the sweet spot overlapping post punk, noise rock and garage punk - a freewheeling anything-goes spirit reminding me of a bunch of groups such as Big Bopper, Brandy, Patti, Reality Group or Cutie.
This philadelphia group has hammered into existence an unwashed bastard of a debut EP - a sound on the intersections of garage-, KBD- and oldschool hardcore punk, presented in a delicious Lo-Fi aesthetic in a fashion similar to anything from the Deluxe Bias or Impotent Fetus catalogues. Think something along the lines of Exxon, Motor Corp, Everyone Is Alone Sometimes, The Vortex, Modern Needs, Fugitive Bubble, Insane Urge, Fried E/m or Septic Yanks.
This is indeed a tour i'm pretty psyched about already! This new split 7" on Goodbye Boozy Records presents the two Perth groups at their finest as Aborted Tortoise make your legs shake with their patented constructs of smartypants garage punk á la Uranium Club, Pinch Points, Dumb, Vintage Crop and the like. Ghoulies then follow up with two strong and catchy garage-/egg-/synth punk tunes roughly in the Research Reactor Corp, Cherry Cheeks, Set-Top Box, Alien Nosejob or Satanic Togas fashion.Album-Stream →
