SEXTILE – Los Angeles’ Electro-Punk Tornado PUSH You To The Dancefloor With Their New Explosive Album

Standout longplayers

16 September 2023


Who: Electro-punk trio from Los Angeles, led by key members Brady Keehn and
Melissa Scaduto. Since emerging in 2015, they have been a party-provoking force
on the LA underground, capable of kicking up a riot with the raw-edged squall
of a synth or the sharp-elbowed jerk of a guitar.

So far they fabricated/released 2 albums:
A Thousand Hands (2015) and Albeit Living (2017)
and one EP (2018).

And number three just landed.

It’s named PUSH.
Order info HERE

Press info: “Sextile are now ready to rage with a serotonin-boosting new album, a new
group dynamic, faster BPMs, and an even wilder new direction. Recorded in Yucca Valley,
Push bounces and bops at the fringes of hardcore dance music, with the hallmarks of drum
& bass, gabber and trance illuminating the record like glow sticks at a ‘90s Fantazia rave.

Push was inspired by the kind of pleasure-seeking music fans whose social calendar comprises both the punk show and the rave. Josh Wink, Iggy Pop, Goldie, and early XL Recording shave all been name checked as influences onPush, and the dance floor remains a constant presence. Repping their place of origin, “New York” brings these musical touchstones off the page, guiding the album like an acid-soaked lodestar with its grinning nod to “Higher State ofConsciousness” and a whirly gig of music-box synths. There are still nods and “hellos” to the caustic post-punk of Sextile’s earlier work. Sextile haven’t relinquished their punk credentials, they’ve just given them a smiley-faced revamp.”

TUTV: Techno punk extravaganza. Chemical Brothers fused with drums & bass expert
Goldie‘s breakbeats and produced by NIN’s Trent Reznor. E-tastic nightclub fireworks. Saturday Night Fever for (il)legal raves on a modern weekend. Ghostly vocals coming
from LA’s underground while schizophrenic guitars rip your speakers.

24-party soundtrack for hedonists to lose themselves in again, before crashing.

Non-stop ominous electro-attacks keep on steamrolling out of your speakers
like sonic speedballs with the ferocious force of drilling hammers. Alice Glass,
Pussy Riot
and The Prodigy all rolled into one and pushing it to the limits.

Physical and mental preparedness required before entering Sextile‘s world.

SINGLES/CLIPS: New York / Crash



Don’t hesitate to buy tickets. They’re live beasts.
I know, I saw them before and will soon again.

One Of His Most Remarkable Records – Deluxe Edition Of ‘NEW YORK’ By LOU REED Out Now!

5 October 2020

With NEW YORK late NYC genius LOU REED made one of his greatest albums ever. His fifteenth LP appeared on 10 January 1989 and the critics, and fans of course, praised this remarkable record, rightly so, euphorically.

A 3CD/DVD/2LPs deluxe edition is out now. It features a 2020 remaster, and includes
a live version of the entire album on CD assembled from various performances on Lou Reed’s 1989 tour. The second CD features the non-album track ‘The Room’, the solo acoustic rendition of ‘Busload of Faith’ and the single version of ‘Romeo Had Juliette’, as
well as ‘Work Tape’ or ‘Rough Mixes’ of tracks from the album. A couple of encores from
an August 1989 performance at The Mosque in Richmond, Virginia complete this disc.

Pitchfork: “A new reissue highlights the ongoing relevance of Lou Reed’s opus about his hometown in the era of AIDS and Reaganism, a protest album unlike any other.”

LOU REED Relesead His Outstanding ‘NEW YORK’ Album 30 Years Ago…

Going back in sonic history looking for memorable albums…

9 January 2019

Artist: LOU REED

Album: NEW YORK – his 15th solo LP

Released: 10 January 1989 – 30 years ago

ROLLING STONE wrote: “In Reed’s apocalyptic vision of the world’s capital as a Boschean inferno, the city’s inhabitants have been shocked into incomprehension by homelessness, poverty, AIDS, child abuse, official corruption, racial violence and drugs. At a time when the city’s own newspapers routinely evoke Calcutta and Bedlam to describe the Big Apple’s rotting condition, Reed’s message, powered by a ferocious four-piece band, slams home with the urgency of tomorrow morning’s headlines… The fourteen songs on New York are fierce, poetic journalism, a reportage of surreal horror in which the unyielding force of actual circumstances continually threatens to overwhelm the ordering power of art. Reed, of course, is no stranger
to unhinging scenes of squalor. On his inestimably influential early albums with the Velvet Underground and through much of his solo work in the Seventies, Reed cast a cold eye on virtually every manner of human excess.”

Turn Up The Volume! says: The way Lou Reed dissects and analyzes the troubled
state of his beloved New York City is baffling and encapsulated in a stunning rock
and roll soundtrack. An exceptional magnum opus realized at a moment that Reed‘s
career was fading away.
