    The Lumes – Envy

    Whether the guitar on third track (Discharge) on this new EP from Rotterdam's The Lumes is being played remains to be seen. The long stretching, stream of feedback that emanates seems to indicate that it's been hurled into a speaker and left to pump out a noxious, squealing wail until the switch is finally flipped. Nice...

    Down I Go – Mortals

    Brilliantly self-described as "Drunk Wikipedia Farming" (aka, the kings of concept-core) the Stockholm/Illinois/Toronto trio that is Down I Go still exist as a band. Despite them all living in different countries, the simple matter of distance, time and space isn't going to stop them from creating music...

    PABST / Autisti – Split 7″

    Surely one of the best kept secrets in the underground music scene is CrazySane Records, right? This little Berlin-based label, run by Chris Breuer of ear-bothers HEADS. has been quietly releasing some great records, split 7" and EPs over the last few months and slowly building up a name for themselves...

    ’68 – Two Parts Viper

    When a man in a suit approaches you in a dream and tells you that you will fail if he (the man) isn't two parts viper, then I guess that's a sign, right? That's what Josh Scogin, vocalist and guitarist for improv-noise bastards '68 thinks - either that, or he needs to seriously cut down on the Twin Peaks marathons. ...

    USA Nails – Sell Sell Sell EP

    What do USA Nails minus the frills sound like? Well, USA Nails really, but fighting one of those dance DJ machines in hell. Recorded partly in a rehearsal room and partly in vocalist Steve Hodson's home on a Yamaha MM30 cassette recorder; Sell Sell Sell is raw....just raw. When...

    USA Nails – Shame Spiral

    Immersing themselves almost completely in a different spectrum of reality, USA Nails (the family fun time band from London - as they like to call themselves) seem content to continue morphing into a magic eye picture of warped insanity. The Swami-guitar lines of their debut have all been erased; washed in a sea of sludge. ...

    Idles – Brutalism

    Subtlety doesn't really exist to a band like Idles. Brutalism, their debut album, opens the door before you've had time to answer, staggers into your house, a blood-smeared hand caressing your walls, a half-drunk crate of beer under one arm and a look that's a cross between madness and euphoria...
