New longplayers that will have an impact on your ears and your speakers…
1. ‘Dinner Dates For The End of Days’ by SCARVES (Seattle, US)
Crackling math-rock emo-punk with twisted echoes from Pavement‘s self-willed havoc to Parquet Courts‘ piercing chants. Very intense, heavily compelling and multiple layers to discover. Trust me, give this impressive album a couple of spins and you’ll be hooked.
Available via Good Eye Records
2. ‘Siesta’ by HATER (Malmö, Sweden)
“The perfect soundtrack for that summer romance and the inevitable break up. Heartbreak
has never sounded so sweet!” says the press statement. Yes, this Swedish quartet combines starry-eyed guitar pop and youthful romanticism just beautifully. Many moony daydreams.
3. ‘Godmother’ by GODMOTHER (Berlin, Germany)
Berlin-based group Godmother is the darkly melodic queer art project helmed by Joey Hansom. His absorbing debut LP is entirely intruiging. Profound musings about troubled life itself and its daily mixed emotions. High quality songwriting with catching twists.
4. VOL. 4 by BIKINI BEACH (Konstanz, Germany)
Imagine Black Sabbath going viciously punk. These German motherrockers produce a sonic tsunami of fierce guitar firework, deafening killer strokes and electrical in your face slams. At times they slow down only to come back harder, meaner and louder! Towering score!
