Robonoise: Noiserock with electronic influences

I noticed I really like it when bands experiment with sound, as a big noiserockfan I ofcourse go completely wild when these bands experiment with sound, especially with electronics. The difference between noiserock and industrial is small, I know, but I wil try  to leave Industrial mostly out of it.  So I will share some of my favourite releases, some with an obvious electronic influence and with others it is a bit more nuanced. Be sure to let me know wich ones deserve a place on here, I really want as much as possible on this list.

Thank

The leeds noiserockers released their album “Please” last year and ended pretty high on my end of the year list. Their sound is full of electronics wich makes their music even more nutty.

Girl Band

On the latest one of Girl Band the electronics are maybe a bit more nuanced but the techno piece in the middle of “Shoulderblades” track is absolutely brilliant and give me goosebumbs to this day.

https://www.facebook.com/girlband/

Shuttlecock

Maybe not 100% noiserock but shuttlecock made a really cool album with “Simulation Assimilation” in 2006.

Gary, Indiana

This is a newer band but it is quite clear the band intents to make a marriage of noise rock and electronics.

Brainiac

This list would be nothing without the 90s band Brainiac.

Kim Gordon

On Kim Gordon’s first solo album “No Home Record” she experimented with a lot of different genres, and she succeeded wonderfully, This is a great record with a lot of different influences.

https://www.facebook.com/KimGordonOfficial/

Shit and Shine

This is quite a band, Shit and Shine has released a bit of everything, I don’t know how many releases they had but it must be a crapload. The band has made pure electronic and acid albums but I wanted to share their latest called “Doing Drugs, Selling Drugs”. There is a lot of sampling and electronic in this album but most of all it is extremely heavy.

https://www.facebook.com/sshitandsshine/

Raketkanon

This is maybe not exactly fitting but I always do love me some Raketkanon, and since they called it quits they deserve a place on here. Their latest album is very much synth, so here it is.

https://www.facebook.com/Raketkanon/

Psychic Graveyard

Noise Rock pioneers, Eric Paul (Arab On Radar, Chinese Stars, Doomsday Student), Paul Vieira (Chinese Stars, Doomsday Student), and Nathan Joyner (Some Girls, All Leather, Hot Nerds) make really awesome industrial/electronic noiserock.

https://www.facebook.com/OfficialPsychicGraveyard/

Duchess Says

The debut of Duchess Says was released in 2006 and deserves a place in here too. Keytars, Keyboards and whatever make this stuff pretty frikkin cool.

https://www.facebook.com/duchesssays/

Servotron

14 tracks about robot domination and human extinction? Released on Amphetamine Reptile Records in 1996? Yes, please.

FOETUS

https://www.facebook.com/nightgoat13/


Fucking Lovely

This is from a member of the noiserockband 72%. There are two tracks available and they are pretty agressive. Sounds to me this guy maybe a bit mad about stuff. But to balance it out the moneyz of this will go to his local food bank.

https://www.facebook.com/72percentband


Dense

Trio from Leeds playing very dirty garage/psych. Tune in for two heavy tracks.

Best of 2019 by Fuzzy Sun

Fuzzy Sun mostly covers noiserock, psychedelic rock and experimental stuff. A new addition to the blog is experimental techno/industrial/noise but this is still in its infancy. I have the feeling there was a bit more psychedelic rock in 2018 then this year but there were still some exquisite releases. It is very clear for me noise rock dominated 2019.

This is my  end of the year list, my best of list of 2019. I tried to orden my favourite released a bit but this is no easy task, so don’t take it too seriously. Do take the bands on this list seriously and take your time to absorb their music. their are some absolute gems in this list. Order some vinyl too. bands like money last i heard.

Take your time and enjoy.

1.Girl Band – The Talkies

My number one of 2019 is Girl Band and I can say this with great conviction. The band is refreshing, implements different genres succesfully in one track. They do not make their sound more easy to become popular, on the contrary, they keep experimenting, this time very succesfully with electronic and techno vibes mixed through their music.

https://www.facebook.com/girlband/

2. Shit and Shine – Doing Drugs, Selling Drugs

This is in your face noiserock with the most dense riffs ever created. Shit and Shine needs to be a genre on their own, somthing like Swamp Sludge or  Zombie Noise. This is brilliant. Shit and Shine did it again.

https://www.facebook.com/sshitandsshine/

3. Lightning Bolt – Sonic Citadel

Lightning Bolt is epic, their new album is epic, it should be on everyone’s list. “Sonic Citadel” is everything you want and everything you did not know you needed.

https://www.facebook.com/lightningboltband/

4. Cherubs -Immaculada High

The cult noiserockers made with “Immaculada High’ an album so gorgeous it deserves to be high on everyones end of the year list.

https://www.facebook.com/CherubsTX/

5. Black Shape – LONDON

I am completely blown away by this “new” band . I can tell you I probably listened to their 45 minute track ‘LONDON’ the most this year. The track starts with about ten minutes of crushing riff, the riff is great but don’t think that is all the band can do. Please take 45 minutes of your time, I promise you, you will not be dissapointed. Out on Hominid Sounds

https://www.facebook.com/blackshape666/

6. Thank – Think Less

The Leeds noiserockers end up at number six with their EP ‘Please’. This new EP is the most original version of punk, noise, and electronics I have heard in a long while. Thank is on acid.

https://www.facebook.com/thankleeds/

7. Kim Gordon – No Home Record

Kim Gordon is making music for millenia and it is just now she released her first solo album. This is a solo album by an artist who is experiences, original, daring and she perfectly knows what she is doing and what she wants. “No Home Record” is exceptional and original.

https://www.facebook.com/KimGordonOfficial/

8. USA/MEXICO – MATAMOROS

Contender for loudest album of the year. With members of Shit and Shine. Destructive, aggressive, hits you in the face and when you are on the ground it keeps on hitting until your face is pulp, then burns the pulp.

https://www.facebook.com/USAMexico-898437733523323/

9. Rainbow grave – No You

Oh lord this is dirty, this is such a dirty mix of sludge and punk that it needs to end on place 8. With founder member of Napalm Death and Scorn and founder member of Doom and Sore Throat. Out on God Unknown Records.

https://www.facebook.com/rainbowgrave/

10. Naujawanan Baidar – Volume 2

I am always up for some new sounds and Mr. Baidar delivers these tunes. A mix of Afghan folk and noise creates one hell of a gorgeous record.

https://www.facebook.com/naujawananbaidar/

11. Tropical Fuck Storm – Braindrops

The Australian rockers made a gorgeous album, again. In my opinion this one is even a lot better then the previous one. A lot of different styles, a lot of tracks that are instant addiction for me.

https://www.facebook.com/tropicalfstorm/

12. Sly and the Family Drone – Gentle Persuaders

Gorgeous in their experimental noise, free jazz and drone. And “Gentle Persuaders” is by far their best release.

https://www.facebook.com/slythefamilydrone

13. Youff -If wishes were horses, homicidal beggars could ride

These nutcases from Belgium released two albums this year. ’20/20 Hindsight’ was so loud even I had difficulty digesting it. Their second part ‘If wishes were horses, homicidal beggars could ride’ is the more experimental of the two and really stuck in my head.

https://www.facebook.com/Youffofficial/

14. Shimmer – And I Revel

I don’t know how to tell you what kind of music this is. Is it demented punk? Is it smoked indienoise? forlorn post punk? I don’t know, all i know is that Shimmer rules and needs to be heard.

https://www.facebook.com/decoherencerecords/

15. Cunts – Cunts

Good lord, this supergroup (Dead Cross, Qui, Retox, Virginia Reed, Hep.Titus and Planet B) makes the heaviest punk ever. Slayer looks like cute little kitties next to Cunts.

https://www.facebook.com/ipecac/

16. Buildings – Negative Sounds

Gorgeous riffs, perfectly produced, heavy vocals! is this the perfect marriage between noiserock and metal.

https://www.facebook.com/buildingsband/

17 .Qujaku – In Neutral

My favorite band from Japan wich I know for sure they will conquer the world with their original mix of doom, psych and noise. They released an EP “In neutral” this year. Gloria is the strongest track of the two.

https://www.facebook.com/Qujaku/

18. Luggage – Shift

Masters in songbuilding, gorgeous noiserock atmospheres, slow brooding tracks. Their third full album ‘Shift’ really suprised me.

https://www.facebook.com/LuggageChicago

https://www.facebook.com/TheeOhSees/

25. BORIS – Love & Evol

Japanse heavyweights Boris return with an excellent album. As alway this band is very difficult to categorize and that is also what makes them so good. Take your time to listen to “Love & Evol”.

26. Junzo Suzuki & Snakes Don’t Belong In Alaska -The Ascended Master Teachings of Junzo Suzuki & Snakes Don’t Belong In Alaska

This, this is a piece of absolutely stunning droning space and psychedelic rock. These two together make godly sounds.

This is a very experimental piece of art. Tracks spanning more then 10 minutes. Very psychedelic and hypnotic atmospheres. Every track is very original and you can hear Black Bombaim very clearly in each track.

https://www.facebook.com/blackbombaim

Kim Gordon released ‘No Home Record’

Kim Gordon (Sonic Youth, Body/Head, Free Kitten, Glitterbust) has released her first solo album. The thing is called ‘No Home Record’ and has exceeded all my expectations. Kim Gordon has made some absolutely great music since Sonic Youth, I really like her Body/Head project so I was thinking in those lines but I did not expect the sounds on this album.

Kim Gordon drops a magnificent album with ‘No Home Record’, the album has a lot of different influences. There are noiserock tracks on it that are very catchy and rocknroll but she experiments with electronics and she does it masterfully.

Not a lot of artist get away with suck different styles on an album but Kim gets away with it and its is truly great.

‘No Home Record’ is out today, October 11 on Matador Records.
