    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...

    Frameworks – Time Spent

    I'm familiar with the jarring discontent of Gainesville's Frameworks, having talked about their track Loom on this very website a couple of years ago. Time hasn't mellowed these spiky and agitated bunch as Time Spent indicates, bristling with scratching, fiery determination. ...

    Stolen Nations – Smoke Signals

    Stolen Nations are going to tick a lot of boxes for people. A two piece, comprised of Jon Terrey (ex-The Chariot) on guitars, vocals and Kris Rochelle (of Listener) on drums, they're sound is an ever-shifting amalgamation of grunge, punk, stoner and even post rock thrown into the mix. ...

    American Standards – Hungry Hands

    What sets Arizona's American Standards apart from their hardcore contemporaries is their inventiveness and balls to mix things up rather than sticking to a familiar path. At only three tracks long, Hungry Hands is a brief but chaotic slab of blunt, passionate hardcore...

    ’68 – In Humor and Sadness

    There's a moment on In Humor and Sadness, the début album by '68; where you can hear an amp finally giving up the ghost and power down. It just snuffs right out near the end of 04. R, cutting out in a pop-of scrawling, mangled feedback, whilst vocalist and guitarist Josh Scogin manages to strangle one last cry from it during its death rattle. ...

    ’68 – Midnight 7″

    Taking their name from a '68 Camaro that Scogin's father once owned, '68, are a somewhat departure from The Chariot's math-rock, spasmodic shape-throwing contortions. Don't think though for one minute that '68 are at the opposite end of the spectrum - the raw, jagged bruised scrape is ever present, yet in a more stripped down, ramshackle form...

    Keep It Fast’s favourite tracks of 2012

    Here are some words about my favourite/tracks you NEED to hear from this year. Sleigh Bells – Comeback Kid (from ‘Reign of Terror’) For once, jangly-guitar bedwetter indie is a million miles away from iTunes free downloads section. Thank god. ‘Comeback Kid’ is a torrent of LOUD NOISES, heavy, punishing synthesized beats, Derek Miller’s wailing [&hellip...
