SLEAFORD MODS + AMYL (From THE SNIFFERS) Nudge It Together

One live track a day keeps the doctor away

Last November razor-sharp-rapping poets SLEAFORD MODS made
some havoc in their hometown, Nottingham. Six of the performed tracks
(2 of the latest album ‘Spare Ribs’, a cover of Yazoo’s ‘Don’t Go and 2 oldies)
were released this year, in April, on a live EP called Live At Nottz Arena.

It includes the track Nudge It that features the awesome Amyl Taylor,
from Aussie punk rockers Amyl And The Sniffers.

She joined the two mods at the said show to perform that firecracker.

Let’s rap and roll

Turn Up The Volume’s 5 Best EPs Of 2022 (So Far)

More than a single, less than an album

Turn Up The Volume‘s ears say that these
are the 5 best EPs of 2022… so far.

Band: NOTHINGHEADS
Who: Hit team formed through a shared love for London’s DIY music scene.
Their songs draw no boundaries – no subject is too confusing, no sound too
eclectic. The band write collaboratively, harnessing the noise and energy
that comes from playing together.

EP: DIGGING

Turn Up The Volume said: Three riff-mental haymakers. Three vitriolic sucker-punches. Three intimidatory knockouts. The Nothingheads‘ frontman sounds like his own meanest demon, threatening and ready to kick badasses. This EP was made to scare all the human-destroying rulers of our paranoid world. If we go to the dogs don’t forget to take this EP with you. It’ll help to channel your frustrations while Armageddon is grinning around the corner.

Stream/buy/dig the whole 5-track EP here…

Act: VIOLET NOX
Who: Experimental electro duo, Dez DeCarlo and Andrew Abrahamson,
from Boston who collaborate frequently with other artists.

EP: ERIS WAKES

Turn Up The Volume said: Violet Nox compose their spaced-out symphonies in an
electronic universe of their own where ambient music dominates in all its different reverberations. Soothing and meditative (opener Spaceport 5), tripping out (Eris / Bellatrix), spooky (Magnetar), and mind-puzzling (Ghost Star). It all feels utopian and cosmic. Foggy harmonies with Portishead‘s vocalist Beth Gibbons transcended timbre and repetitive eurhythmics echoing German legends Tangerine Dream.

Close encounters of the third kind.
Sonic science-fiction. Stupefying

Band: THE DARTS
Who: Inflammable engine
from Phoenix, Arizona

Turn Up The Volume: wrote: The Darts? They sound cool, look cool and rawk ‘n roll cool.

This Devilish American Rip-roaring Turbo Squad do it again on this new 3-track EP
with a garage hurricane (Love Tsunami), a mid-tempo groover (Shit Show) and another
brisk belter (Underground). And again, Nicole Laurenne, the utterly charismatic dart in
the middle, fires up the cuts with her sexy 60s-sounding organ.

The electrifying Amazons hit the bullseye once more.

Artist: ROBIN GUTHRIE (Scotland)
Who: Co-founder of Cocteau Twins (1979–1997)

EP: RIVIERA

Turn Up The Volume wrote: An instrumental 4-track one with a featherlight, heavenly and spiritual magnificence. Stardust everywhere. If you’re not into all that festive end-of-the-year fuss (like me) play all Guthrie‘s 2021 releases on repeat. It’ll give you (and me) a mind-relaxing, soothing, and idyllic feel. Sparkling vibrations for the midnight hours. Guthrie transfers you to a blissful place.

Enjoy

Album: SPARE RIBS – the duo’s 11th LP

are always expendable to the elites. We’re in a constant state of being
spare ribs.”

stunning production, great guests, scabrous lyrics – and a steadfast refusal
to offer easy answers.”
