    The Turin Horse – S/T

    Who the fuck are The Turin Horse you ask? Two dudes from Italy called s Enrico Tauraso (vox, guitar, samples) and Alain Lapaglia (drums) both of whom were in separate bands (Dead Elephant and Morkobot) but decided to sack that off, teamed up, moved to Turin and created this noise-pollution of a duo...

  • Tiny Moving Parts – Swell

    Tiny Moving Parts – Swell

    Tiny Moving Parts couldn’t have picked a better title for this collection of songs really. These 10 tracks on Swell are fit to burst with impassioned beauty, melancholy, tales of loss and re-connection; from their erratic time changes to the heady blasts of breakneck punk rock and contemplative, brooding lyrical couplets...

  • The Royal They – Foreign Being

    The Royal They – Foreign Being

    Foreign Being by The Royal They is anchored by one common goal - to hit you hard and make you take notice. At first, it felt solely driven by anger. There's rage in this - boy, is their rage. The guitars howl and fizzle with acidic intent; but there's also a hell of a lot of heart in this and that heart is pumping raw, bloody emotion from every ventricle...

    Booji Boys – Weekend Rocker

    So, what do you need to know about Weekend Rocker then by these Halifax lads, the Booji Boys then? It's brief, I mean - at 12 tracks and 27 minutes (one of those tracks being over 7 minutes long) you barely have time to gulp a mouthful of air as another song launches itself at you from a huge stack of speakers...

    Chiller – S/T

    There is a weird coldness to Chiller's sound, making their moniker surprisingly apt. Featuring member's of Feral Trash, Black Tower and Mother's Children this Canadian four-piece are a somewhat of a super-group in the deep underground of the punk rock world. A film-noir cloak envelops Chiller; from their quirky, irregular sound...

    Lizard Hips – Top 10 albums of 2017

    My top 2 will not surprise some people and it's mostly business as usual. Some returning bands and truly outstanding work all round from nearly everyone that's released an album this year that I've enjoyed. Even albums that didn't make the top ten (sorry Pissed Jeans, you're in at 11...) were stonking great. Enjoy. ...

    Dodge Meteor – Real Soon Now

    Where some artists create with paint, feelings or whatever, Dodge Meteor create with riffs and by create I mean splatter everywhere in a turbo-blast of raw, bleeding power. Guitars howl and morph into each other through a colourful spectrum of bending chaos, whilst the crunching percussion hammers a thick, marching beat of dread...

    METZ – Strange Peace

    METZ hit the ground running, or rather, absolutely demolish all barriers with the teeth-rattling barrage that is Mess Of Wires. This is more a freight train continuously building in speed and chattering noise, as the drumming of Hayden Menzies is an almost direct parallel to the sound of clattering wheel rails, chewing to pieces everything in its path. ...

    Tigercub – Evolve Or Die

    Apparently, Evolve or Die, the new EP from Brighton's Tigercub, was influenced by a short story from Argentinian author George Louis Borge, called The Library of Babel. This tale is about a universe that consists of a library full of a series of hexagonal rooms containing the bare necessities for human survival. ...

    Ampwrecked 14: New Music For Your Ears

    Death From Above keep up with the wrestling theme. Propagandhi invite us for a drink. The Bronx go rock 'n roll. Unsane cover everything in blood. METZ destroy our ears through a mess of wires. And So I Watch You From Afar show off their new wings and Converge go completely brutal. ...
