    Arnocorps – The Unbelievable EP

    The Greatest Band Of All Time still remains the most factually correct album title in existence. Yes, those Austrian-American rock 'n roll action pioneers, Arnocorps are back in new EP form, Unbelievable, right? WRONG! TOTALLY BELIEVABLE, EXACTLY!...

  • Donnie Willow – Exhibition

    Donnie Willow – Exhibition

    From the squealing feedback of opener Stuck, Donnie Willow definitely have issues that would very much like to vent and they do so with swirling rage. The bass on this thumps and hums with gurgling ferocity, whilst guitarist Arthur Piddington, switches from Tubelord-esque vocal wails, to raging yelps of frustration...

    Mutoid Man – War Moans

    Opening track Melt Your Mind couldn't be more aptly titled - it's a shred of riotous, unhinged energy that bubbles, bursts and roars. In just over 2 minutes, it's slams home a vibrant blast of melodic metallic punk leaving your jaw on the floor. This is swiftly followed by the drum-happy clatter of Bone Chain, which sounds like Van Halen writing a pop song for Kvelertak...

    ’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. ...

    Christian Fitness – Slap Bass Hunks

    Staring at the cover of Slap Bass Hunks, (the fourth album from the ever-prolific Christian Fitness, aka, Andy Falkous) I'm convinced that it's some kind of 'Black Mirror' vision of the future, where the uprising happens and we succumb to our great bee overlords. ...

    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...

    Yagow – S/T

    Yagow are a vortex of sound with one goal in mind - absorbing and claiming everything within reach. This is best demonstrated on the mammoth 8 minute opener, Horsehead Nebula; a pulsating beast of hazy, cryptic guitar layers, see-sawing riffs and the kind of sprawling post-rock scuzz of journeying into the centre of a star that's about to explode. ...

    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...
