    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. ...

    UpCDownC – UpCDownC

    This is a very dark path indeed. I suppose that the week of summer we had back in July is all we're going to get as we descend into the realms of autumn. What better way then to soundtrack that by listening to something that will not only make you constantly look over your shoulder in fear and head-bang like a bastard. UpCDownC are that band. ...

    Alright The Captain – Contact Fix

    There are sudden pattern shifts, time changes and deviations from the norm that make Contact Fix by Derby's Alright The Captain an exciting and fascinating listening experience. Opening track, Toaster Mouse, is built around a steady, squelching synth-bass line that rises and falls with giddy abandon, whilst the tappy-math rock guitar weaves trickery and pitch-shifting bite throughout...

    Acid Deathtrip/Hangman’s Chair – Split 12″

    Man, now that is a killer band name; that just makes you want to listen to them. Netherlands lot, Acid Deathtrip are giving me that weird, foaming-at-the-mouth grin and repeating a subliminal chant of "we know you're going to like this even before the first sludge-damaged riff swamps your brain." ...

    Yearbook – Old bones

    Two chords into this EP I went 'oh yeh pop-punk/emo like that other song of theirs I could be anyone' then the third chord came and shat on that hypothesis. It was discordant but not that heavy, what it really reminded me of was Inme, remember them...

    Rock Sound CD 100% Volume: 154

    An interesting mix this month. Four Year Strong, Crazy Arm and A Loss For Words fly the flag of punk rock with relentless enthusiasm and maniacal delight, whilst La Dispute turn hardcore upside-down; Trapped Under Ice completely stamp all over it and Lifeless win the award for ‘funniest band I’ve heard in ages.’  Props to [&hellip...
