    KRAUSE – 2am Thoughts

    Man, this is pissed/odd/crazy (delete where applicable). Hey, that's what you expect from any band on Riot Season though; a label that are the true purveyors of the weird, wonderful and downright ridiculous when it comes to creating a variation on sound that can be interpreted and translated into music. KRAUSE are four dudes from Athens...

    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. ...

From Pat Sharpe and the Turbo Hand Shandies, through to Egg Sandwich Overkill and the new album from The Outhere Brothers - he'll be counting down the hits of this year.

    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...

    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. ...

    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. ...

    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...
