Check out the latest collection of songs by the band. They sold this album on their Japan tour. Check out their bandcamp for more heaviness.


Thank release ‘Please’

Good God, I thought I knew what the new album by Leeds noiserockers Thank would sound like. You know, I thought it would be a strong punk/noiserock album in the line of their debut and their split with Blom. But this is something absolutely incredible, the band experimented with electronics, they threw in some nervous computersounds and now their new album ‘Please’ is extremely fun to listen to. It is agressive, wild, still superb punk and very original. For some reason this stuff is almost singalong material, my lazy body who normally needs loads of booze before it wants to move starts moving out of itself when listening to this.

The ‘Please’ Ep by Thank is without a doubt amazing, addictive and  will be very high on my end of the year list.  Out on October 11. It will be released through Buzzhowl Records and Belgium’s EXAG. ‘Please’ is the first Thank release which has involved new member Gowans throughout the writing process.

Lightning Bolt release new album ‘Sonic Citadel’

Am I getting used to all these noiserock bands and all these experimental stuff because I have the feeling the new album by Lightning Bolt is catchy? Can that be or am I slowly changing in one of those experimental weirdos that dress in gothic/disco clothes and drink only vodka and think harsh noise should be played nonstop on national radio.

I don’t think I am getting crazy though, I think Lightning Bolt is still a furious, wild and frenzy band that makes fast paced noiserock but their tracks are getting more catchy for sure, the rythms get stuck in your head and before you know it you are singing along. The riffs are absolutely great and they still shred your face off, the drums are still weapons of mass destruction.

‘Sonic Citadel’ is easier to listen to and for that matter maybe more fun. This album shreds, is loud and melodic, fast paced and it has the quality of growing on you, sounds better each time you spin it. Can’t me in as a big fan.

Lightning Bolt is a crazy band and the duo are excellent musicians and they really display their talents on their new album.

It is frikkin great.

Out on Thrill Jockey on October 11.

Lightning Bolt share third track ‘Hüsker Dön’t’

We are creeping closer to the release date of the new album by Lightning Bolt. The new album is called ‘Sonic Citadel’ and they already released two tracks. The third track is out now and is called ‘Hüsker Dön’t’. The track is again a fantastic Lightning Bolt track, immense speed, gorgeous riffs, drums like they were made in the pits of hell and the distorted vocals. Again a pumped up epic noise track.

The Feral Young release ‘Complicated Transmissions’

Today is ridiculous, with the release of Girl Band I am extremely hyper. Just when I am starting to calm down the Turku based noiserockers The Feral Young are back with new music. The band shared their first new track and video since the release of the excellent 7″ ‘I Haven’t Seen Myself in a While’ that was released on Kaos Kontrol.

Again the band shows their high expertise in mixing noiserock and punkrock while riffing you face off. Brutal, loud and agressive. The Feral Young are back and they are going to destroy your ears.

Lightning Bolt that returns with a new album this year is again news that really excites me. I don’t know if it is only in my head but this year has already been extremely awesome and it is only September, my end of the year list will be really long with bands like this.

Third track ‘Salmon of Knowledge’ from Girl Band

Okay, so listen, this is the third track and last track Girl Band is sharing before the release of their new album ‘The Talkies’ on September 27. It is called ‘Salmon of Knowledge’ and you need to listen to it.

I will not yet post the full album review because this is quite important to me, ‘The Talkies’ will end as my favorite album of 2019 cause of it’s high experimentalism, brutal en innovative sound.

So I played ‘Salmon of Knowledge’ for my girlfriend because i like playing noiserock to her because she hates it and something strange happenend, She said: “The noises are really really irritating just like you and that guy should not yell so much but its better then most shit you play”. So this is the first time this happenend, so this is proof, Girl Band rules.

Now enough blabbering.

Listen to ‘Salmon of Knowledge’ and experience the godly sounds of Girl Band.
