Listen + Watch Melt Citizen‘s EP “Dullard”

Melt Citizen is Mike Peregrino and is from El Paso in my home state Texas. The EP ‘Dullard’ has a mixture of the Reatards, Sonic Youth and The Beach Boys and will without a doubt have you feeling FUZZY

My favorite thing Mike has done with this release a video for each song and then a live video series called PARTY POOPER! It’s kickass, enjoy!

Osees release ‘Protean Threat’

Osees, formerly known as Thee Oh Sees, The Oh Sees, OCS, Oh Sees and others) is led by John Dwyer who does not only release an incredibel amount of music with his band Osees but has side projects like the recently released Bent Arcana and his solo project Damaged Bug. ‘Protean Thread’ is album number 23 for the band! The new album, released under their very onw Castle Face Records, starts if fast paced with ‘Scramble Suit III’, Gets a little more funky with ‘Dreary Nonsense’ and from then on the tracks seem to switch between a bit more funky and hypnotizing and enegrgizing garapounk. ‘Red Study’ is again in your face loud garagepunk together with ‘Mizmuth’.

With ‘Scramble Suit III’ and ‘Gong of Catastrophe’ my favourite tracks this new album ‘Dreary Nonsense’ sure is good, I don’t think this band will ever release something bad, they keep slowly shifting in their own genre, sometimes more punk, somethimes more kraut, … and this is what makes em great. Still I think I have to listen some more but it leaves me a bit underwhelmed. Maybe I was hoping for some really outstanding track like I felt with ‘The Axis’ or ‘The Lens’ or a more riff fueled one. But it does not really matter, It is a great listen.

If you can’t get enough of frontman Dwyer then you can check out his solo project Damaged Bug with the new ‘Bug On Yonkers’ album and this new project Bent Arcana.

$hit & $hine Share Noiserock Ripper ‘Devil’s Backbone’ Ahead Of The Release Of Malibu Liquor Store’ On Rocket Recordings

$hit & $hine’s on the ever incredible Rocket Recordings have just dropped ‘Devil’s Backbone’ a mind-altering cacophonous chasm taken off of the forthcoming album ‘Malibu Liquor Store’ set for release October 9.

‘Devil’s Backbone’ is like drinking a cocktail of Les Rallizes Dénudés & Place to Bury Strangers whilst being strapped into a rocket and fired into the furthest regions of space itself at lightspeed. Murky acid-like electronica delving into noise and space-rock, ‘Devil’s Backbone’ sounds it’s constructed by a beastly colossus from another dimension.

Absolutely glorious and exhilarating stuff from $hit & $hine, be sure to pre-order the album here as it’s going to be a good one for sure.

Anyway, I’m off for a run as I feel I need to do something with this nervous energy after listening to this maniacal banger…

Mint Field Share ‘Aterrizar’ Ahead Of Second Album

Mint Field have been dropping a number of ethereal, cacophonous stunning gems in the run up to their second album ‘Sentimiento Mundial’ out 25 September via Felpe records and the Mexico City based duo have just released another great new single with ‘Aterrizar’.

A chunk of frothy shoegaze stew with faint touches of psychedelia, ‘Aterrizar’ – actually recorded in London, is a dreamy ballad that mollifies the current anxiety-fuelled environment that we’re currently living in with its sonic escapism. 

Be sure to check out the single below ahead of the album which looks to be an album of the year contender. 

Another new Osees track ‘Scramble Suit III’

The second track ‘Scramble Suit III’ by O Sees (Thee Oh Sees) is out. Only a short while ago they released their first track ‘Dreary Nonsense’ and ‘If I Had My Way’ taken from their upcoming album ‘Protean Threat’ wich will be released September 18 on Castle Face Records ofcourse.

The psych/garageband Osees is for a reason top of the food chain and on these three tracks they prove it yet again, it seems we will get a marvelous album again. Seems 2020 is not all bad.

If you can’t get enough of frontman Dwyrer then you can check out his solo project Damaged Bug with the new ‘Bug On Yonkers’ album and this new project Bent Arcana.

Listen to the Sophomore Album ‘Listen Guys’ from BIN

Their post-punk roots and mixture of that Australian sound we all love has me wanting more and I’m sure it’ll have you feeling the same way!

The band is Ryan Sawyer, Peter Kerlin, Kyp Malone, Brad Caulkins, Tom Dolas, Marcos Rodriguez, Laena “Geronimo” Myers-Ionita, Joce Soubiran and Andres Renteria. All these artist have played or are playing in the most diverse and incredibly cool bands. Now they form Bent Arcana and they have come together for five days of electrified & improvised sessions recorded at Stu-Stu-Studio, edited down to 40 minutes for your ears.

These tracks are incredible, some of them jazzy tracks others more heavy kraut but all of them are truly amazing. It is clear that this album is made by so much experienced and talented artists. These 40 minutes will be playing over and over at my place. Tune in for some brain melting kraut.

Traams Return With Their First Single In Nearly Four Years

It’s been a long four years since Chichester’s finest ever export Traams (Stuart Hopkins – vocals & guitar, Leigh Padley – bass & Adam Stock – drums) have released any music. Since the trio’s ‘House on Fire’ that was released near the tail end of 2016, the world has started to fall apart and thus, there is probably a good argument to be made that one of the finest bands from the UK were in fact holding it all together.

The outfit though after quite sometime, and to much delight have returned with ‘The Greyhound’. Produced and mixed by Public Body maestro Theo Verney, Traams have returned with a glorious cacophonous near-10 minute odyssey. Cataclysmic pulsating krautrock with explosive post-punk, the trio have returned with a hypnotic yet adrenaline fuelled riot that also features Lewis Evans of Black Country, New Road on saxophone duties.

The sound of anxiety during this claustrophobic lock down, Traams like their contemporaries Girl Band, black midi and the aforementioned Black Country, New Road have created a whirling labyrinth of gloriously visceral sounds.

Check out the video the ‘The Greyhound’ right now and let’s hope we don’t have to wait so long for new material next time…

Conan Neutron & The Secret Friends (+ amazing interview)

Let us take a closer look at this very interesting band. Conan Neutron & The Secret Friends was formed by, who would have thought, Conan Neutron. He formed this band in 2015 with Dale Crover ( Melvins drummer and his solo project) and Tony Ash.

Conan Neutron himself is not really a person that sits still, he has a weekly podcast on Radio Nope called Protonic Reversal that invites guests from the world of noiserock, punk rock, post-punk and experimental genres.

Next to the radio show Conan played such bands like  Replicator, Victory and Associates, Mount Vicious, Household Gods (with David Pajo of Slint and Vern Rumsey of Unwound) and ofcourse he plays in Conan Neutron & the Secret Friends wich I will share music from.

Now The band Conan Neutron & Friends has been making music since 2015 and have released some albums together and recently the Protons and Electrons Compilation. A gatefold double vinyl compilation of all of the Conan Neutron & the Secret Friends singles, and Electrons: A compilation of the various artists that were on the other side of the 7″s.

To start of you can listen to the latest single (not from the new record) called ‘We Were Wolves’ (it is on the Quarantimes Vol 1 NIVA Benefit on Learning Curve Records too,), this is quite a lot of music to work through so in the meantime you can read some questions I  asked Mister Conan.
