OUT TODAY! Electric-Powered Debut LP By New York Duo RUSSIAN BATHS – Here’s ‘DEEPFAKE’…

Just released

8 November 2019

Band: Russian Baths
Who: New York based duo that “fuses the abrasive sounds of New York in the eighties,
the angular outbursts of DC hardcore, shoegaze’s torrents of noise and the suffocating
anxiety of the Information Age. One part horror movie soundtrack, and one part personal confession, the band’s music is at once imposing and intimate.”

Album: Deepfake – debut album
Sound: Overall this stupefying noise record is a striking non-stop wall-of-grunge-meet-shoegaze-and-hardcore experience that puzzles your senses, perplexes your aural radar, and penetrates your defenseless mind with an irresistible force that will leave a lasting mark. For all of us out there who love to be messed up by hair-rising turbulence.

OUT TODAY! Second LP By Aussie Daydreamers DUMB THINGS – Here’s ‘TIME AGAIN’…

Just released

8 November 2019

Band: Dumb Things

Who: “Australian bedroom pop five-piece that make music which is a perfect reflection of the sub-tropical climate found in their native Queensland, bright and carefree and shimmering, the occasional wistful and melancholy overtones shrugged off to let That Striped Sunlight Sound shine through.”

Album: Time Again – the band second’s LP

Sound: This is a record you actually can play any time of the day because of its general
feel-good tone, its dreamlike and hum-along harmonies, its relaxing melodiousness and
its seducing jangly poppiness. Your ears just won’t get tired of this collection of sensitive reveries and gratifying musings. A sonic massage from start to finish.

OUT TODAY! Third LP By London’s Funky Misfits Combo WARMDUSCHER – Here’s ‘TAINTED LUNCH’…

Just released…

1 November 2019

Band: Warmduscher

Who: A group of miscreants, known only by aliases, producing a sort of doomed disco grooves for all those who hate what’s played on boring radio shows and in posh clubs
right now. Having a couple of Fat White Family members on board helps to scare normal people when they walk down the streets of England’s doomed Brexit fiasco.

Album: Tainted Lunch – the band’s third longplayer

Released: 1 November 2019

Sound: The band biographer and revered botanist Dr Alan Goldfarb describes the LP
as “a sample hole through which to taste another universe. A dramatic warning. A gilded aroma. It is a tale of wanton desire and limitless treachery. A tale of disillusionment, the
refusal of exploitation.”
Expect some mental post funk junk for all outsiders out there
who want to freak out and shake their hips in a smelly basement. Yes, underground
fun for the wicked! Even Iggy Pop got out of his straitjacket to join Warmduscher‘s party!

OUT TODAY! Sharp Cutting Debut Album By British Post Punks CROSS WIRES – Here’s ‘A LIFE EXTINCT’…

Just released!

1 November 2019

Band: Cross Wires

Who: Committed 4-piece post punk force from Bethnal Green/Romford, UK

Album: A Life Extinct – the band’s debut LP

Released: 1 November 2019

Sound: This is a band that tackles the grim times we experience with a biting potency
that triggers every tense nerve in your body and awakes your troubled mind with their nervous, fanatical and burning dynamic that cuts like a brand new Swiss knife. This is a band that cares, a band that roars about what they care, a band that matters, a band on the top of its hot-tempered game. This is a record about 2019. This is non-stop edginess! This is a bang on debut! Without a shadow of a doubt one of the best of the year!

OUT TODAY! New LP By NEIL YOUNG & CRAZY HORSE – Here’s ‘COLORADO’…

Just released!…

25 October 2019

Artist: Neil Young & Crazy Horse
Album: Colorado – first collaboration with Crazy Horse since 2012 LP Psychedelic Pill
and first time since 1971 (!) that legendary guitarist Nils Lofgren worked with Young again
Sound: Vintage melancholia blues à la Neil Young. Profound, emotional and heart & soul-touching. At times pitch black because of the very troubled times we live in, at times as romantic as he ever was now that he’s married to his third wife, actor Daryl Hannah
NME verdict: 4/5 – review here

OUT TODAY! Second LP By London’s Battling Noise Rock Tandem DEUX FURIEUSES – Here’s ‘MY WAR IS YOUR WAR’…

Just released!…

18 October 2019

Band: deux furieuses
Album: My War Is Your War – the duo’s second LP
Released: 18 October 2019
Sound: Since their raging, anti-injustice debut album ‘Tracks Of Wire‘ back in 2016
the world is, unfortunately, in an even worse state than back then. Sexism, racism,
egoism, intolerance, inequality on many levels and repression are back stronger than
ever, thanks mostly to a new breed of narcissistic and nationalistic politicians ruling our so-called civilized world. deux furieuses‘s second full length tackles all those human-destroying issues with cutting statements packed in highly emotive and vehement songs expressing all their frustration and fury with the underlying vital message that life is too valuable to mess it up by hating each other for all the wrong reasons. For me, personally, ‘My War Is Your War‘ is a beseeching and vociferous call-up for solidarity, unity, universal respect and mutual understanding. A call-up to survive together with the one and only
way possible: side by side. A call-up to save this terribly divided planet which is its way to self-destruction if the current ‘My, myself and I‘ status quo remains.

Just released

Band: Mark Lanegan Band
Album: Somebody’s Knocking
Released: 18 October 2019
Sound: Mark Lanegan looked at the world and saw, like (almost) all of us that we experience dangerous and explosive times. As an artist Lanegan translated his disbelief, anger and silent hope into a bewitching collection of impressive songs that hits bullseye
on many levels. Remarkable artist with another remarkable achievement.
