Kevlar Bikini – OPT-OUTism (Geenger Records)

Although slightly late to this bikini party (story of my life), I really enjoyed this Croatian trio’s 3rd album Rants, Riffage And Rousing Rhythms released via Geenger Records back in 2018. Although not the sort of style that I would… Continue Reading →

Human Impact – S/T (Ipecac Recordings)

In what could only be described as any self-respecting fan of so called ‘Noise Rock/Metal’, this judicious melding of minds between Chris Spencer (Unsane), Jim Coleman’s sampling mayhem (Cop Shoot Cop), Phil Puleo (Cop Shoot Cop/Swans) and sticky, pounding bass… Continue Reading →

The Glad Husbands – Safe Places (Atypeek Music)

With a name like The Glad Husbands you could be forgiven for thinking that they can be found playing second fiddle to Mumford and Sons at a cheese rolling festival in Gloucester; however you’d be way off the mark.  As… Continue Reading →

Drose – Boy Man Machine+ (Computer Students)

Everything about this release has been meticulously thought about, the minutiae of detail is formidable to the point of being pedantic but for a geek like me it was extremely well appreciated and admirable. The whole double vinyl package is… Continue Reading →

Lunden – S/T (Abstract Tits)

Childish or not, one is always going to throw the words Abstract Tits into an Internet image search and see what artistic results it comes up with. Quite disappointing really but the label in question are apparently Danish and have… Continue Reading →

Membrane – Burn Your Bridges (Atypeek Music)

What’s with that bird on the cover? Is this a picture of some kind of ritual I’m not aware of, or is it just a picture of a dead bird? Also, why is the bird placed on someone’s bound-together feet?… Continue Reading →

Arabrot – Who Do You Love (Pelagic)

If you like your music weird and unusual, your lyrics heavy with meaning and full of all sorts of connotations and connections, if you are fascinated by all things strange and bored by everything conventional, then Arabrot’s new album Who… Continue Reading →

Throat – Bareback (Svart)

Probably since the time of hunter-gatherers to expose your back has meant to make yourself vulnerable or to take a risk. The connection of an exposed back and vulnerability is so long-standing, that is has entered set phrases and idioms…. Continue Reading →

Baptists – Beacon of Faith (Southern Lord)

Walking through the woods on a foggy day in autumn is somewhat uncanny. You feel like walking in a bubble, because you can’t see far. The woods are unusually quiet. The fog swallows light and sound. When my dogs lift… Continue Reading →

Unsane – Sterilize (Southern Lord)

Album ♯7 from Unsane, purveyors of New York’s post punk/hardcore, noise rock or whatever you want to call their style. Their career has spanned almost thirty years. My first encounter was their 2005 album “Blood Run” which mixed aggression with… Continue Reading →

Boris – Dear (Sargent House)

With a discography that spans 87 releases across 25 years, Japan’s Boris are currently one of the most prolific hard working bands within noise rock, reaching an international audience and standing alongside underground heavyweights such as Sunn O))) and Earth…. Continue Reading →
