Brussels group Warm Exit has a new EP out and just as i suspected that thing fuckin' rules. Four new high voltage garage-/synth punk smashers somewhere in the neighborhood of Powerplant, Ausmuteants or whatever the Warttman empire is up to right now.Album-Stream →
More quality shit courtesey of Deluxe Bias. This absurdly short cassingle of noise in the realm of KBD-informed weirdcore, garage- and post punk will sure be a delight to folks who've already developed a huge boner for Mystic Inane, Rolex or Fried E/M.
On their second LP, noise rock/postcore trio Trigger Cut considerably raise the energy level without sacrificing much of the precision work, sophisticated structures and arrangements we've already witnessed on their debut album. Especially in the first half there are some serious Jawbox and Bastro vibes going on. In the past i'd have told you that Ralf Schaarschmidt's current and past bands are among the very best the german noise rock scene has to offer but honestly, at this point, even worldwide there aren't that many groups operating at their level.Album-Stream →
Here's a holdover from last week by a single Milwaukee dude (i guess) that i first planned to omit here but on closer listening turned out to be much stronger than i initially thought. A catchy, dreamy, melancholic blend of lo-fi noise pop, organ-and-synth punk unfolds on these tapes that also radiates a good deal of oldschool Flying Nun-type psychedelia.
Man, this has been a lame week as far as new music is concerned. I don't wanna withhold from you one standout release though, this little gem operating right in the middle between garage punk, hard- and postcore - kinda like a mix between Fried E/M, Modern Needs, Mystic Inane… with a spoonful of Drive Like Jehu thrown in at the right moments.Album-Stream →
Water For The Frogs releases April 9th via The Reverberation Appreciation Society.
