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.

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!

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.
