    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. ...

    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. ...

    PABST – Skinwalker

    From the label that brought you noise-grunge bastards HEADS. and the savage guitar/drum party jams of Closet Disco Queen, emerges more riotous, jet-fuelled sounds to get your ears around. PABST are three lads from Germany making the kind of teeth-shaking racket you would expect...

    Beach Slang – A Loud Bash of Teenage Feelings

    For James Alex, Beach Slang is another chance to have go at things. The frontman has already been around the circuit, as guitarist for stalwart pop-punkers Weston (remember them?) for a number of years and this angst-laden ball of sweat and three chords, a project he started in 2013, is already making some impressive waves (excuse the pun)...

    Downard – Agony City

    Despite this minimal set up, Downard make use with what they've got, stretching their caustic and frothing sound far and wide through the liberal use of effects pedals, weird-times changes and the kind of scrappy, barbaric percussion that was last heard blasting out of the first METZ album...

    Riot Season - an undiscovered gem in the underground world of noise, punk, hardcore and general destruction to eardrums.

    Christian Fitness – This Taco Is Not Correct

    Those familiar with Falco's Christian Fitness project (one-man band) will notice the amount of 'beef' that's been siphoned into This Taco Is Not Correct - (and I mean beef in the sense of SOUND and not the meat product, although we are talking tacos here so...maybe it's both?)...

    Liars Cult / Unrestrained / Great Reversals / Funerals – IV

    Straight out of the pit, Blasphemour Records have a real treat in store - a four way split, coming out on half ox blood, half mustard vinyl. Ox Blood? Someone form a band called that right now. Four bands contributing a track each, drawing power from various hardcore roots and featuring past members of several acts that will surprise you...
