Death Grips drops a video single for the first track to be released from their forthcoming album, Jenny Death, which is also the second half of their yet-to-be-completed double album titled The Powers That B. I reviewed the first installment earlier this year.
While it is my job to keep a cool head, it’s hard not to be hyped for “Inanimate Sensation.” The revving group vocals, presumably live drums, and ear-searing synths all remind me of Death Grips’ early work–and sound just as exciting. It’s easily one of the most hard-hitting singles of 2014, and I’m hoping much of Jenny Death follows suit.
Previously mentioned musical oddity Gazelle Twin has a new EP out centered around one of the pivotal cuts from her new full-length album, Unflesh. “Anti Body” is an unsettling musical experience, featuring rigid, industrially tinged kick drums, and some eerily whispered lead vocals. For all it’s unorthodoxy, it’s actually somewhat catchy.

This Paula Temple track is about to make me lose it! Seriously!
This electronic music producer currently hails from Berlin, and the track embedded above is the first cut off her new EP on R&S Records. It’s a primal presentation of techno and industrial rhythms. These beats are encased in some distorted, shrill synth leads and monolithic vocal manipulations. It sounds too primeval to be new, but too synthetic to come from the stone age. A sonic anachronism!
I can vibe with any producer who can successfully conjure some raw, visceral rhythms, and Paula is showing a real knack for that already! Try out the b-side of the EP right here.
The Bug delivers a new album that reads more like two decent EPs.
A piece of chilling auditory excellence from producer, dj, and co-head of Her Records, Sudanim. The track is absolutely freaky, and manages to stir some really frightening emotions in its 3-minute runtime.
I’m loving the metallic, primal rhythms, for one. It’s like a combination of a factory floor machinery and the kind of drum circles you’d only find in the thickest of jungles. On top of this, Sudanim lays some incredibly twisted, high-pitched wails that I could even begin to guess the origin of.
I’m not sure where all of this is coming from, but hell is clearly where it’s going! Enjoy.
Get ready for a challenging listen on this one! This i.o album titled Edit Architect is a dense, tangled web of multi-tracked guitars, relentless drums, and whatever other glitches this Victoria-based bedroom recording project manages to throw into the works.
It’s like a fusion of free jazz, math rock, and the avant-garde. Give a listen and enjoy!
