Some freakish, frenzied punk rock on this new Vulture shit EP, which you can stream via the widget above. If you love manic vocals and wild guitars compressed into brief musical blitzkriegs, then this is for you. Enjoy!
Previously reviewed beatmusic producer Sadisc drops a new EP, which is essentially a few odds and ends surrounding a massive, 20-minute monster of a track. The song is titled “Cells,” and it’s really a test of Sadsic’s abilities as a composer, weaving a group of incredibly varied instrumentals and grooves together into one pretty cohesive piece.
Give the EP a stream above and enjoy!
Dark ambient, jazz, noise, and a strong sense of uncontrollable fear come together on this new, self-titled Shivers album. The trio features the musical input of Rutger Zuydervelt, Gareth Davis and Leo Fabriek. They’ve collaborated before, but this is the first time they’re doing so under this particular name. The final result, a.k.a. this album, is challenging, but surprisingly brief in its length. It would seem these guys wanna get straight to the heart of what these noisy, drone-jazz fusions are all about.
Look for this album on Miasmah.
Golden-haired pop songstress Sia drops yet another song from her forthcoming record, 1000 Forms of Fear. It’s dropping July 8th.
Alternative pop outfit Alt-J drops a new track from their forthcoming LP, This Is All Yours. It’s a moody slow-burning ballad that asks for your patience.
In the final third of the song, I came to realize this is a pretty cerebral piece of music. It asks a lot of the mind’s primeval side, I’d like to think. The song’s hypnotic rhythms and drones speak to something ancient or archaic, and it’s more beautiful for it.
Glasgow electronic music producer Rustie recently dropped a new single titled, “Raptor,” and it sounds like the future. It’s like the soundtrack to Nintendo 64 racing games set in the year 3030.
This cut is due for release on Rustie’s next album, Green Language, which is looking at a release on Warp Records this summer. Enjoy!
Courageous Endeavors is a modern jazz quartet from Minneapolis whose members fancy themselves “the Twin Cities’ answer to the relevance of jazz in the 21st century.” I’d say with this debut album of theirs, Prototype, they live up to that. If you’re looking for some powerful modern jazz (besides BBNG), absolutely give this thing a listen. The playing is tight throughout, and the group is capable of delivering some breathtaking climaxes, perhaps the highlight being “Legends,” whose music video you can watch here. Check it out above - you’re bound to get the feels!
I’m certain this debut EP of New York experimental rock trio Kiddy Pool contains the most batshit song title of the year: “I Guh Guh Got A$$bergers from a Toilet Seat.” Let that be some indication of what the band’s sound is like – unhinged, noisy (surf) punk laden with lasering electronics and skittering vocal samples. The threesome’s zany dial is turned to 11 most of the time, but they are capable of mellowing out quite a bit, like for the penultimate track “Voodoo or Dirty Mind no Let’s Stay Together,” or for the closing moments of “Mouth Bunker.” It’s a breezy albeit frenzied listen with its six tracks totaling about 12 minutes; give it a try above and happy listening!
