Its the middle of the summer and their has been another peak in corona cases, there have been floods and heat waves, species are going extinct, the rich are getting richer, forest fires and the climate is still changing and stuff like that but fear not! I have a list of the best music of this July that can take away all your troubles. Tune in and blow all your misery away.

PRO TIP: press play on more then one bandcamp for your own mix of hellish noise


Modecenter release self titled

Austrian trio Modecenter released their new album on July 23. The thing with the same name is some excellent fast paced noisy post punk with some angry vocals on it. Loud, fast and agressive, this new album is really great, not really sure why the rest of the world is not talking about this. Tune in now!



Night Beats going to release ‘Levitation Session’

Night Beats- sprouted from the head Danny Lee Blackwell – will release a new Levitation Session. We had sessions by Acid Mothers TempleKikagaku MoyoBlack Angels, OseesAlex MaasBlack Angels and more and now we get the first track from the upcoming session by Night Beats. Order the LP and check out the track ‘Ticket’.



Meatbodies to release ‘333’

Meatbodies is a really great garagerock band fronted by Chad Ubovich who played in Mikal Cronin’s backing band, bassist for Fuzz and I am very pleased to see we get a new album. The album ‘333’ will be released on the third of September. The LA trio has two tracks out: ‘Reach For The Sunn’ and ‘The Hero’ and the first one is almost five minutes of gorgeous fuzz and the latter is really happy summer psych.. Check it out now.



New noiserockers Work Party

“Drunk Conference Call” and ‘NFG’ are the new tracks by the new Chicago band Work Party. The tracks are in your face noiserock and hardcore. A very strong no nonsense first track and the the second track ‘NFG’ a slow burning noiserock track. Very great stuff from these four dudes. The tracks are taken from an upcoming album called ‘My Best Days are Behind Me’ which will be released somewhere in October. Check out the video.


Luggage release ‘Happiness’

The previous album ‘Shift’ by Chicago band Luggage really got under my skin, and now they are back with a the second album called ‘Happiness’ released July 16. The repetitive basses and guitar work have an extremely bleak atmosphere and that together with the slow drums and the vocals of Michael Vallera create something really bone chilling and eerie.

‘Happiness’ is all about atmosphere, the whole album got this ominous vibe and slow burning tempo. It hits right in the feels. Check them out now!



Future Old People Are Wizards and Elefant split from RSD 2018

I don’t think I posted the split of these two Ghentian bands yet. Both are excellent live bands and always bring heavy and weird music, both are on bandcamp and it is very worth your time to check out their catalogue. Both are on The Big Belgian Noiserock List. 

The split Ep is called ‘TÜÜÜT’ and they just put it out on bandcamp, tune in for some weird stuff by Elefant and some heavy riffing by FOPAW.



The German band Kombynat Robotron release have released a lot of music in a short period of time lately and now they return with yet another piece of kraut infused psych. ‘-270°C’ is a gorgeous piece of psych and space rock. КОМВУИАТ ЯОВОТЯОИ makes music to trip to, tune in and check them out.




On Heavy Psych Sounds comes a great new split by the Italian space/psych rockers GIOBIA and Scottish heavyweight The Cosmic Dead. Both have released really awesome music in the past so this will be a great split for sure. The first excerpt is up for a listen an it is 5 minutes taken from the 19 minute track ‘Crater Creator’ by The Cosmic Dead. The split will land on earth on September 29.





I have no idea who Decor are or what they are but I do now they have a new album with the same name and its out since July 4th. These humans are from Brooklyn and make intense and destructive noiserock. The first track is called ‘Bake Sale’ and its probably my favourite, the slow distorted bass, experimental noises and the angry vocals make this a unique an gorgeous noiserock. Now there is a lot more like that first track, the whole album is one angry experimental bass driven noiserock feast. Listen to it.


Luggage share second track ‘Lie Design’

The previous album ‘Shift’ by Chicago band Luggage really got under my skin, and now they are back with a the second track called Lie Design’ from their upcoming album ‘Happiness’ wich will be released july 16. The repetitive basses and guitar work have an extremely bleak atmosphere and that together with the slow drums and the vocals of Michael Vallera create something really bone chilling and eerie.



Infinity Land, Heel Turn and Virgin Mother Split

There is always coming out great music on The Ghost is Clear Records and now out of thin air dropped a three way split between Infinity Land, Heel Turn and Virgin Mother. Infinity Land i just got to know from their last release on TGISC, Heel Turn is new to me (and very in your face) and Virgin Mother is project of Seb Alvarez from meth.  I believe. Be Cool and Buy it on Cassette.




Psychedelic rockers Longheads release ‘Higher Than Bacteria’

Somewhere in the UK is the four headed band Longheads and they are making something between heavy psych, exprimental, kraut, prog and doom. I Think. Anyway, this is the first time I am hearing this band and it is quite awesome, there is enough fuzz and solos in it to call it in your face heavy psych and it gots all kind of vibes. Layered like a birthday cake and loud like the kids that eat it. Niiiiice.




One man psych band Tren Go! Sound System & Ornamental

Alway fine to discover another One man band. I made a list a while ago by one man bands and now Tren Go! Sound System & Ornamental is on there too. The sounds are fromPedro Pestana (10 000 Russos and Talea Jacta). Tune in now for some fine Portuguese psychedelia. For vinyl please refer to Dirty Filthy Records or Pink Tank Records.



Posy released ‘bongga ka dai’

It is early in the morning here and this is just the best music to wake up too. Posy is a punk band from Washington and their music is loud and raw. This new EP together with 5 cups of coffee, a panic attack and 3 croissant is just the perfect way to start your day. Pure unfiltered noisepunk that is excellent from start to finish. Check them out now and order the tapes and buy the digital, you know the deal.
