21 August / 23 August 2020…

Five new firecrackers to boost your favorite 48 hours…

1. ‘Hail Taxi’ by METZ
These Canadians have slash and trash chromosomes in their DNA. Their wall-of-balls-crushing racket is massive. New, fourth longplayer Atlas Vending out 9th October.

2. ‘Ohms’ by DEFTONES
The title track from new album OHMS, out 25 September. A robust mid-tempo slam. “We’ve never just been a metal band, we’ve never just been an alternative band, we’ve always just been us.” says frontman Chino Moreno in an interview with NME.

Hypnotic, intimidating, and ongoing bleeps and beeps trip. Lead-single
from new album Shadow Of Fear, first in 26 years. Out 20 November.

4. ‘Nightmares’ by ALICE GLASS
A furious electro sledgehammer by former Crystal Castles voice. “If this was
ever a part of me/ Then I’ll rip it out/ You’re not a part of me/ Cause I don’t want it.”

5. ‘If I Had My Way’ by OSEES
24/7 garage rock junk John Dwyer releases a new longplayer called Protean Threat
with Osees one of his many outfits. This new cut is a buzzing 60s prog rock stroke. Yeah!…

See/hear you next week, music junkies…
