New music by Girl Band, Lightning Bolt and King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard

While I was a couple of days away a couple of incredible new releases saw the light of day. Most of you have possible heard this stuff over the last days but here they are anyways.
Girl Band

You probably know by now that Girl Band is back and they return full force. The first single Shoulderblades was released a while ago and now the second single is dropped. ‘Going Norway’ is from their upcoming album ‘The Talkies’ wich will be released 27th September on Rough Trade Records. ‘Going Norway ‘ and ‘Shoulderblades’ is on their 12″ that you can buy right now. Tune in for the new track ‘Going Norway’.

Lightning Bolt

This is quite some news too, Lightning Bolt returns with their fast paces noiserock. They have shared their first track ‘Air Conditioning’ from their upcoming album ‘Sonic Citadel’ wich will be released on Thrill Jockey. This is their first new music since the 2015 album ‘Fantasy Empire’. Like most bands their sound evolves and shifts and this is no different with the new Lightning Bolt. But what stays the same is the ferociousness and extreme fast paced drumming. Hear for yourselves and tune in for ‘Air Conditioning’.

King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard

The new album ‘Infest The Rats’ Nest’ by King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard is out. The band is known for their fast paced releases but mostly I believe for their varied sound. They can release semi-jazz albums, heavy psych, mellow psychpop and so forth. On this new album they go heavy, real heavy. At first I thought this would be a trashmetal album. But what makes ‘Infest The Rats’ Nest’ so good is that they keep their unique psych sound that you can find in each album. On this album you can hear a lot of trashmetal, but also some vintage hardrocksounds and ofcourse their very own psychedelic sound. Tune ine for the new album now. And excellent new release again by king Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard.

Favorite track: Superbug

Oh Sees release ‘Face Stabber’

Well, it has arrived, the new album by cosmic gods Oh Sees. This psychedelic beast is called Face Stabber and it is a double LP! Out on Castle-Face Records August 16th.

I am bad with words so I won’t torment you with loads of letters and opinions. What I can say is that Oh Sees are one of my all time favourite bands and each album they release (and they release a lot of those, I believe we are at number 24) is filled with originality, craftmanship and sheer enthousiasm. ‘Face Stabber’ is again something different then their last album (wich was gorgeous) ‘Smote Reverser’. This album seems a bit more experimental, less heavy maybe then ‘Smote Reverser’.

With fourteen tracks, some of them over 10 minutes, Oh Sees gives us sonic feast. It takes time to listen to this spaced out tracks, interludes and heaviness but this impressive work is worth every second of your time.

Brace yourselves and tune in now.

Qujaku released limited 200 EP

The thing is out! And we can listen to the second track ‘In Neutral’ too, wich is filled with psychedelic sax. Tune in and enjoy the one of the best Japanese bands. You can also read under the video about how much i love Qujako and listen to their other music.

I have been rambling a lot in the past three years about the Japanese band Qujaku. The Hamamatsu-based Japanese band has become one of my favorite acts and not without reason, since they formed in 2013 they have released amazing music. In  2015 came their debut ‘ZyouK’ and they toured UK, Germany and Hungary, followed by a release of an EP, “KEIREN”. In 2017, they released an EP “H” and toured with 26 shows over Europe. In 2018 came their latest album ‘Qujaku’ wich immediatly became one of my favorite for 2018.

Qujaku is difficult to classify, they draw influence from Japanese legends like Keiji Haino and the mystical Les Reallizes Denudes, But that is not it, they have created their very own sound, a sound that can be so delicate and intricate and with the perfect transition they can shift to brutal riffs mixed with noise and agressive drumming. The soft vocals seem to fit in perfectly in either the extreme heavy parts as in the soft bits. Equal parts psychedelic as doom and noise, Qujaku as a refreshing and original take on modern heavy music.

Now enough blabbering! Their new EP ‘In Neutral’ will be released in limited print. their we be 200 EPs released and we can expect them on 26th of July on the So I Buried label. Now they shared their first track from that EP called ‘Gloria’. Again we can hear the band with their specific dark sound constantly on the verge of exploding. A gorgeous track from a band that needs to be heard, needs to be shared!

The band will tour again (and i will have the opportunity too see them again) and you will have to see them too if possible because they are an absolute force live.
