Spacetrucker – Smooth Orbit – 2nd Pass (S/R)

Go on, just from the name guess what kind of music Spacetrucker play? Actually yes, but this St Louis trio have a little more under their cosmic hood than meets the eye. This is I believe their second self released… Continue Reading →

Transylvania Stud – The Red Queen (Transcending Records)

Whether a stud or not Andrew Godfrey calls Virginia home and not Transylvania but luckily this EP has something worthy of sinking its teeth into. Looking at his adopted moniker here you may well expect some sort of Finnish glam,… Continue Reading →

Black Mirrors – Funky Queen (Napalm)

Debut four track EP from Belgian rockers Black Mirrors with a title that for me promises lots and threatens about the same; the kind of title that suggests female singer, low-slung guitar swagger in a doomy style and if you’re… Continue Reading →

Queen Elephantine – Kala (Transcending Obscurity)

With a production value as rough as a hangover, Queen Elephantine cast a little one-take stardust over their music. It’s lo-fi and dissolute. Hearing them recorded can’t be far away from the aural experience of seeing them live. Feedback and… Continue Reading →

30,000 Monkies – I Ate Myself To Grow Twice As Big (Consouling Sounds)

Belgian noisemakers, 30,000 Monkies are an interesting bunch. “I Ate Myself To Grow Twice As Big” is the band’s first full length outing following on from two EP’s. This is a curious mix of punkish attitude, doom and stoner riffs… Continue Reading →

Pander – Fierce Self (Metalization)

Formed in Athens in 2013, Greek four piece Breath After Coma have just released their self-titled debut 6 track EP. With a sound heavily influenced by the famous Seattle Grunge scene which dominated rock music in the early 90’s along… Continue Reading →

The Atomic Bitchwax – Gravitron (Tee Pee)

When two thirds of the band are recording and touring with another band it is quite a feat to write and record an album as damn good and rockin’ as Gravitron. When that other band is Monster Magnet who famously… Continue Reading →

Fashion Week- Pret-a-Porter (Solar Flare)

There are 2 bands from the U.S. called ‘Fashion Week’, one plays lame indie bollox, and the other one sounds like they may want to kill you. …Thankfully, it’s the latter band that concerns us here. I say thankfully, to… Continue Reading →

The Cyon Project – Tales Of Pain (Pavement Entertainment)

With only a demo and a couple of singles this Italian band gives us their full length debut and like many intelligent bands they do not rest on genre descriptions or indeed current trends but favour an approach that will… Continue Reading →

Psychopunch – Smakk Valley (SPV / Steamhammer)

Psychopunch’s Smakk Valley may sound venemous and slightly seedy, but it’s actually all rolling punk with pop sensibilities. A set of driven tracks, coated in colour and bolstered with a strong sense of fun. An amalgamation of Green Day, The… Continue Reading →

Alice Donut – Freaks In Love (MVD Visual)

Emerging from the New York underground in 1986 Alice Donut originally chose the name Alice Donut Liver Henry Moore, a play on words of the Scorsese movie Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore. On giving it to a gig promoter they… Continue Reading →
