S:Bahn - Queen of Diamonds

This Mel­bourne group has been around be­fore. That was some­time dur­ing the 90's and back then, their sound could be de­scribed as your typ­i­cal, slight­ly emo-fied post­core style of that pe­ri­od with echoes of Chavez, Slint and Pol­vo. Their first new songs in a quar­ter-cen­tu­ry how­ev­er are quite far from a nos­tal­gic re­tread of their ear­li­er tunes. In­stead, we get pre­sent­ed an all-new and slick post punk sound clear­ly be­long­ing in­to the present day, which doesn't look out of place among acts like say, Sleepies, Go­tobeds or Drahla, at the same time sound­ing rather time­less and ma­ture in all the best ways, at times al­so evok­ing a sub­tle Mov­ing Tar­gets or Vol­cano Suns vibe.

Sarcasm - Creeping Life

It's been a few years since i last heard of Lon­don group Sar­casm. On their lat­est and, ap­par­ent­ly, last EP their ul­tra-min­i­mal­ist post punk with strong hints of Crass and more re­cent bands like Mar­bled Eye, Rank/​Xerox or La­bor still sounds pret­ty much as if not a minute has gone by since then, which is to­tal­ly fine with me. Quite pos­si­bly, these songs were record­ed not long af­ter their 2017 Malar­i­al Bog EP.
