    ’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...

    Blanck Mass – World Eater

    Blanck Mass is the rebooted spectrum of Hal and Mother recording an album together (and succeeding) in hell, melting through the goddamn walls faster than you can say Game Over Man, Game Over. World Eater hits hard, full ramming speed, never letting up or letting go. It's Crank - if Power slows down, it's all over. ...

    Closet Disco Queen – Sexy Audio Deviance for Punk Bums

    Now, that's a great EP title, seriously - well done the lads from La Chaux De Fonds. Closet Disco Queen are on some kind of bizarre quest to make sure you're dripping in sweat. No, not through fear, but through their turbo-charged raw, untamed power. ...
