Scottish post-hardcore punk and tattoo artist FRANK CARTER
and his RATTLESNAKES had their 4th longplayer Sticky out last
year.

Two weeks ago they nailed it big time with a brand-new nasty
haymaker called The Drugs featuring Carter‘s buddy Jamie T.

And here’s another new fireball named PARASITE.

Carter: “‘Parasite’ was conceived on a particularly brutal trip to the seaside
where both Dean and I were in a difficult time in our lives and feeling low

Scream it out, guys…

Band: THUMPER
Who: Maximalist rockers
from Dublin, Ireland

Single: SUMMER ASSAULT

“It’s a vignette of self sabotage, an anthem of small failure. It’s about a doomed relationship that carries on regardless — a narrator banging on the glass trying
to warn the song’s inhabitants. Each melody and hook competes for space over
an ever expanding wall of guitars, bass and their signature double drums. In just
over three minutes, “Summer Assault” sees THUMPER boil their trademark noise
wall into an earworm of a pop song.”

Expect a concrete wall-of-schizophrenic-guitar sound, enough twists and turns
to make your head spin uncontrollably and a gigantic chorus spiced with flustered
vocals.

Yes, a stunning stonker.

New Jersey’s Veteran indie rockers YO LA TENGO (already in action since 1984)
have a new album in the pipeline, their 16th. It’s named Stupid World p, planned
to land in February 2023.

First taster FALLOUT is pure YLT. Jangly guitars rotating on and on and Ira Kaplan
signing his story all over the hurried flow. Another familiar psych jam from masters
of the genre.

Let’s roll

Pithy rock girl meets pithy rock boy for a pithy pop-to-rock cry-out called I’M A MESS.

It goes like this…

Band: TRAGICOMICS

Who: Manchester-based troubadour Christopher Eatough who returned in 2017, having spent several years away from the music scene, emerged from his struggle with mental health with a raft of new material and a renewed sense of romantic fatalism. Determined to find a like-minded, ragtag collective of musicians to help bring the songs to life, Eatough brought friends and musicians from across the Northwest together. So far the collective canned/released 2 albums: Old Songs For The New Celibacy (2017) and Book Of Want (2021).

New single: HOPELESS ROMANTIC

“The track bursts with Tragicomics’ swaggering, earthy take on folk-rock. Their diverse influences – ranging from pop, folk and rock to tin pan alley, prog and Americana – shine brightly as off-kilter rock guitar is combined effortlessly with Eatough’s charismatic vocals,
the soaring soundscapes of violin, gritty bass lines and relentless drum beat.”

Put on your blue suede punk-rock shoes, you’ll need them to dance, jump,
pogo, and pirouette when this super-duper corker hits your ears. Romantic
or not it’s going apeshit time for everyone who wants to let steam off for
4 minutes.

Band: RUSSIAN BATHS

Who: Engrossing duo producing “Intertwining feedback and harmony with equal
significance, Russian Baths paint in searing strokes finding beauty in towering, looming, incendiary noise-rock. Influenced by Sonic Youth, Nirvana, Archers of Loaf and more…”

Track: PARASITE

Score: ‘‘Parasite’ sounds both weirdly seducing because of its reflective duet vocals and overall menacing because of its heavy droning grunge sturdiness. This is an intriguing, zestful and haunting stroke that begs for more. Find out why right here…

Brooklyn’s RUSSIAN BATHS Going Paranoia On New ‘PARASITE’ Single…

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

14 March 2019

Blustery tandem RUSSIAN BATHS from Brooklyn, New York shared their new kick-ass hammer called ‘PARASITE‘. This is what the band’s Luke Koz has to say about the track: “Have you ever had an insect burrow into your brain and force you to drown yourself? Cured
a headache with a hand grenade? This song is about these legitimate questions.”

Well, it seems like this is not your average love song, folks, rather the paranoid hangover
of a surreal and mind-damaging nightmare. And the sick result is bloody smashing! Like
a Sonic Youth eruption coupled with an exploding Nirvanesque chorus and injected with doomy male/female vocals. Play this damn loud, crush that insect in your brain and keep your hand grenade ready to erase your headache. Lots of deranged fun! Press the button right here…
