The Q-Tips - There Are Those Who Drill Violently​!​

It on­ly took them like… twelve years but fi­nal­ly the Mu­nich duo has re­leased their sec­ond 7" via Sloven­ly Record­ings and it's an ir­re­sistable blast of garage- and elec­tro punk with echoes of The Spits and Stal­ins Of Sound, plus an un­like­ly touch of Big Black in the high­ly com­bustible open­ing track Shut Your Face.

The Freakees - Freakee Deakee

New shit from one of KBD-in­formed garage punk's prime mak­ers in our time, L.A.'s Frea­kees. Hav­ing tried on quite di­verse styl­is­tic flour­ish­es, bits and pieces on re­cent EPs in­clud­ing pure synth-/elec­tro punk on their pre­vi­ous one, they have nev­er sound­ed more fo­cused than on their newest ef­fort and this pays off ad­mirably as the cur­rent, pret­ty synth-heavy it­er­a­tion of their sound to­tal­ly slaps and might be com­pared fa­vor­ably to acts like ear­ly Launch­er, Alien Nose­job, Re­search Re­ac­tor Corp., Liq­uid As­sets and Sa­tan­ic To­gas.

C.H.I.M.P. - Demo

…and here's yet an­oth­er ex­quis­ite load of quirky, fun & catchy DIY garage- and synth punk by some aus­tralian dude that fits right in be­tween, say, the last Alien Nose­job full-length and the even more col­or­ful mi­cro­cosm of Warttman-af­fil­i­at­ed groups.

Monoburro - Discografia

Every­one keep an eye on the chilean la­bel In­stant Par­ty. Hav­ing al­ready caught my ears re­cent­ly with the Piz­za Boys tape, these folks have just un­earthed an­oth­er gem by a mex­i­can group i prob­a­bly wouldn't have heard of oth­er­wise and they fuck­ing rule! This tape com­piles all four EPs they've re­leased so far. Elec­tri­fied garage- and synth punk kin­da like S.B.F.-meets-The Spits, but the lat­ter with way more ro­bots, more cy­ber­punk but maybe al­so… mum­ble punk?

Μπριτζολιτσεσ - Αισχοσ Ντροπη

So the egg-plague has now ar­rived in Greece. Was about time, i'd say. Μπριτζολιτσεσ are a duo from Athens cook­ing up a mix­ture of garage- and synth punk that even yours tru­ly has to clas­si­fy as to­tal­ly and de­li­cious­ly nuts. A lev­el of nut­ty­ness that's rough­ly in the ball­park of lu­natics like Skull Cult or the whole Warttman-in­fest­ed Re­search Re­ac­tor Corp./Set-Top Box clus­ter­fuck. What­ev­er un­de­ci­pher­able mess google trans­late makes of the lyrics gives me a hunch that un­der­stand­ing the lan­guage won't make the whole thing any san­er.

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!

Egg Idiot - Egg Idiot

Some pa­thet­ic los­er in Leipzig, Ger­many is play­ing around with bleep-emit­ting hard­ware and record­ing equip­ment, not yet ful­ly re­al­iz­ing this leads to him end­ing up fight­ing the good bat­tle at the fore­front of the egghead rev­o­lu­tion. This record is a fuck­ing mas­ter­piece you need to have in your life. Hav­ing on­ly lis­tened to it once, i al­ready feel a lot smarter, more bal­anced - full en­light­en­ment on­ly inch­es away. Al­most be­ing a wise old man my­self, i can't stress enough how fuck­ing proud i am of this lit­tle shit.

Mononegatives - Apparatus Division

This Lon­don, On­tario group had put out a cou­ple of al­ready quite neat EP's in 2019 but it's on­ly on their new full length de­but that all the mov­ing pieces re­al­ly click in­to place for twelve 12XU-cer­ti­fied killer tracks made up of charm­ing­ly odd, high­ly in­ven­tive and ex­quis­ite­ly en­er­getic garage-, synth- and post punk echo­ing shit like Use­less Eaters, Pow!, Ex-Cult and Preda­tor.

Ghoulies - Reprogram

This week's manda­to­ry in­jec­tion of De­vo-ish garage- and synth-punk comes from some Perth based group whose quirky and catchy sounds sure­ly won't fail to more than ad­e­quate­ly re-vi­tal­ize ad­mir­ers of groups like Skull Cult, Re­search Re­ac­tor Corp., Alien Nose­job, Iso­tope Soap or Erik Ner­vous.

Spyroids - Passage To Hell

Oh my… it took a good two years (or rather, two some­what be­low-the-usu­al-stan­dard years) for this Los An­ge­les duo to come up with a fol­low-up to their fiendish­ly fun de­but EP. Just as back then, this is noth­ing short of an­oth­er glo­ri­ous spec­ta­cle of sleazy, stinky, for­bid­den synth-/elec­tro punk de­light, the likes of which you'll on­ly ever en­counter in the shadi­est cor­ners of Bandcamp's adult en­ter­tain­ment sec­tion.
