    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...

    Japandroids – Near To The Wild Heart Of Life

    Five years since Celebration Rock and there's murmurings in the Japandroids camp. If you think about it though, this is a band that have been on tour for years, then they go into the studio, lay some tracks down, maybe have a few months off to let the ringing in their ears die down a bit, then BANG! Here's the new record. So, it's really not that long - we all need a rest, don't we? ...

    Lizard Hips’ Top 10 Albums of 2016

    I'm sure in many, many, MANY years, 2016 will be studied as the "what the hell happened in THAT year?" as a history module. 2017 has got to be better, right? Thankfully, there was some good music this year, amongst all the badness (Ken McCray dying was a total bummer and you know, the other stuff) so, what better way than countdown my top 10 albums of ...

    WHORES. – Gold

    If the production on this was some form of mineral, it would be a mudslide; a cruel, filthy, flow that never lets up until everything is submerged in grime. The guitars let off an ear-squealing hiss of disdain throughout the 35 minute running time of Gold, whilst the bass rumbles and belches thick, slabs of mulch and the drumming is a tribal hammering of bloodied determination...

    Holy Gold – Feral Children

    The alumni that make up Atlanta's Holy+Gold burst forth from the metalcore bubble, with members of Norma Jean, The Glass Ocean and professional crowd-surfers, The Chariot in tow. It's a surprise then, to hear that Holy+Gold carry very little over musically from these projects, save for teasing moments of snarling hardcore fury and some fractured distortion...

    Truckfighters – V

    Crushing everything in their path with waves upon waves of punishing fuzz, Sweden's Truckfighters burst back onto the scene with their fifth album, cunningly titled V. Now onto their 8th drummer, El Danno, (proper Spinal Tap shit going on here) - they've suffered some drastic line-up changes since their inception; hopefully now, they can remain stable for a bit! ...

    Tölva – Wide Shot

    France's Tölva can provide that much needed detachment with their debut EP, Wide Shot. For the most part, Tölva's post rock seems fairly ordinary, non-threatening and fragile, much like the jellyfish that graces the cover of this EP. ...
