    Ampwrecked: New tracks for your ears 10

    It's 2017! Let's kick off the new year with a few new-ish tracks or something! Plus, I needed a post to kickstart the website for 2017, as I'm not sure what to write about. Darko, Less Than Jake, GUG, Oak, Pulled Apart By Horses and Code Orange all step up to the plate and deliver some riffs/horns/more riffs. Enjoy. ...

    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

    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...

  • House Of Lightning – House of Lightning

    House Of Lightning – House of Lightning

    At 6 tracks long and 37 minutes running time, House of Lightning absolutely blitz through these songs with unhinged and frenzied delight. It's a evolving mixture of colliding genres and styles all scrambling for position; from moments of boom-led stoner-rock, to over-driven thrash-punk, squealing alt-rock and sludge, House of Lightning keep the listener on their toes...

  • Holy Gold – Feral Children

    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

    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. ...

    Ampwrecked: New Tracks For Your Ears 9

    On Ampwrecked this month: KEN Mode discuss marriage, Sleigh Bells write a delightful pop ditty, USA Nails do stuff to their oven, Okilly Dokilly enjoy a nice drink, Mr Velocity Hopkins go to a party, Japandroids punch hearts, Stan Bush draws his sword and Whores leap around wearing black t-shirts. Yep. Enjoy. ...

    Cotillion – Korean Fan Death

    Cotillion are a two-or-three-piece band from New York via the Ukraine and really don't take themselves too seriously - from the myth-taunting EP title, to the bizarre track names such as Saturday Morning Elevator Trouble and splintermezzo. Yeah, you're in good hands. ...
