On Premature Records comes the new EP by Spraint. The EP is called ‘Radio Caca’ and is really cool, it has a lot of different influences wich makes it a really interesting listen, here and there the album feels like a grunge album but then the noisy garageriffs blast throughout and it is heaviness all around. Cool stuff, yes, cool stuff.
Shit is getting confusing, there well come a time when I will try to make a post about Shit and Shine where I will try to order their records a bit from weird techno to strange electronics to brutal sludgenoise. Lately Craig Clouse (wich is, I think, the mastermember) has been releasing al his older albums on bandcamp and it brought me a lot of joy. So while I have been checking out all these releases Craig has been releasing new music as well.
‘Goat Yelling Like A Man’ is the album that is released on Riot Season Records and wich is mental sludgenoise. And right about the same time we have got the new album ‘Malibu Liquor Store’ wich is out on Rocket Recordings. Trippy and fat beats for moving your body. I tried moving my body on these beats and I must say it was pretty fun.
The French band Mange Ferraille released their new album ‘Erba Spontanea’ on Dur et Doux records and it is forty minutes of hypnotic dronerock with noiserock influences, ambient and experimental stuff. This is very trippy stuff and a gorgeous listen. Tune in, listen and buy.
Petbrick is Wayne Adams (Big Lad/Death Pedals/Johnny Broke) and Iggor Cavalera (Sepultura/Soulwax/Mixhell). The band released the album ‘I’ october 2019 but have not been sitting still since then, they have released the remix track ‘Gringolicker’, the remixes of the ‘I’ album and my favourite, the collaboration with Deafkids called ‘Deafbrick’. Now, on Bandcampday, they return with an EP called ‘Pet Sounds Vol. 1’ wich is a mix of eerie soundscapes, industrial destruction and drum driven choas.
This perfect hangover music comes from Copenhagen and is called Eyes and their debut album is out and is called ‘Underperformer’ and was released September 25 through Indisciplinarian.
This entire album is made out of pure anger, riffs, punk, metal and other hard stuff. It is very agresssive and very good for your soul. Only possible to listen to this very loud. Tune in.
On Fourth of September, Bandcamp Day, The new compilation album ‘Shut it Down: Benefit for the Movement for Black Lives’ was released. 100% of proceeds going towards The Movement For Black Lives. On the compilation we have 46 tracks and a great variaty of metal, punk and noiserock. Some of the artist deliverds brand new tracks and others unreleased tracks and demos and stuff.
Due to the many tracks and great artists ont his I can only say it is very, very awesome and it is a true delight to listen to everything and just enjoy the noise and riffs and certainly to get to know some new artists.
This is one you need in your collection. It is not a lot of money when you hear what you get for it. Tune in and buy it now.
I was really looking forward to the release of this album and it does not dissapoint. The sheer brutality and extreme sounds on this album are gorgeous. This is the perfect mix of metal, noise, experimentalism and industrial. ‘Deafbrick’ is a succes in searching the boundaries of extreme and experimental music. A must have for the fan of the extreme.
Out on Rocket Recordings
Experimental Brazilian Deafkids and industrial band Petbrick (IGOR CAVALERA) have collaborated to make super intense industrial tinged heaviness. Their first track ‘Forca Bruta’ is just an all out assault to all senses wich felt like a truck driving over your face, now we get the second track wich is called ‘Sweat Drenched Wreck’ and is again industrial unfermented wildness. This new collab is intense, awesome and absolutely great.
The album ‘DEAFBRICK’ will be released on Rocket Recordings on September 4.

Lately Craig Clouse (wich is, I think, the mastermember) has been releasing al his older albums on bandcamp and it brought me a lot of joy.

And right about the same time we get new music wich will be released on Rocket Recordings. This new track is called ‘Hillbilly Moonshine’ and comes from the upcoming album ‘Malibu Liquor Store’ wich will be released October 9. Tune in for some trippy electronic vibes and then listen to some bone crushing noise.
This new album by the UK band Sly |the Family Drone is just gorgeous. Their previous album ‘Gentle Persuaders’ was a lot better then all they had released yet and with ‘Walk it Dry’ they continue this trend. The album is focussed on atmoshpere, and the atmosphere is extremely eerie. When I listen to this I always get the feeling I walking in a jungle at night, a jungle filled with dangerous animals and deadly plants but they are all out of sight but I know they are close, the weather is sweaty and the ground wet. ‘Walk It Dry’ is addictive and controlled noise and Sly & the Family Drone show they are masters in their genre. I suggest to lay down when listening to this album. This is music that you should absorb. Gorgeous cover art by Kazland.
Cunts are made of members of Dead Cross, Qui, Retox, Virginia Reed, Hepa.Titus and Planet B. The band released their first album a while ago on Ipecac Recordings and blew me away. They are on my end of the year list og 2019 too. Now they are back with a track they made during quarantine. The track is called ‘The Nail’ and is in your face hardcore punk.
Check it out and listen to their debut album too if you haven’t yet.
Dave Lombardo, Justin Pearson, Michael Crain, and Mike Patton form the absolutely awesome loud band Dead Cross. Chceck out their cover from the track ‘Rise Above’ by Black Flag’.
Shy-Talk is a new band, a band made of members of Blóm, Cave Suns, Hermitage, Onlooker, Waskerley Way and Young Liar.
Shy Talk makes refreshing heaviness, a good dose of punk, sludge and riffs and it is filled with raw energy. I am not really a writer so mostly I just write down some dumb shit here about how the music sounds like a crashing airplaine full of wobats or something. I am not going to do this today, today I am just going to say I really like this music, and that I am grateful and happy that it is not only one track but two.
Their double A-Side single ‘Chauvinism / Didn’t The Do Well’ is out now. ‘Chauvinism’ is fast paced fun and ‘Didn’ the Do Well’ is slower heaviness, the kind that hits you right between the eyes.
Their sound is strong, their vibe is awesome, their looks are cool, be like Shy-Talk.
Out on the great Box-records!
Sly & The Family Drone is becoming some kind of addiction for me, a couple of years ago I discovered their music and was instantly hooked by it, the controlled choas and the experimental and ominous atpmosphere in their music is addictive. And since the release of their previous album ‘Gentle Persuaders’ I feel the band kind of stepped it up. I thought it would be difficult to match the quality of ‘Gentle Persuaders’ but on their two new tracks ‘Shrieking Grief’ and now the latest track ‘My Torso is a Shotgun’ they succeed yet again in their brilliant noise. A force that sounds so brute and primal, Sly & The Family Drone is something you need in your life. Also, the art by Kazland is gorgeous and fitting. They are on my sax list ofcourse too.
Tune in for the first two tracks and listen to this as loud as possible.
Wel hello, Brazilian Deafkids is awesome with their experimental tribal drumming and shit and Petbrick with their industrial aproach, each of them released pretty great music not long ago and now they have collaborated for a new album on Rocket Recordings wich will be called ‘Deafbrick’. The track is called ‘Forca Bruta’ and is just a wall of sonic loudness and awesomeness ready to destroy your soul. Tune in and check it out.
Sloath has released their album ‘III’ on June 19 on Riot Season Records and it is quite something. The album was made in 2014 and has aged since then waiting for a master to mix it and release it.
The album is filled with gorgeous riffs, a sludgy and doom atmosphere and some spacerock, you know, to make it even better. Their are a not a lot of vocals on this album and normally that is something that bothers me bot not on this album, this album has so much atmosphere that the sparcely used vocals only make it stronger. ‘III’ sounds like a fine aged wine.
Sloath will release their album ‘III’ on June 19 on Riot Season Records. The album was made in 2014 and has aged since then waiting for a master to mix it and release it. The mix of repetitive riffs, otherworldly sounds and heaviness makes Riot Season a perfect home for this. ‘Rewengue’ is the first shared track from this album and is a perfect track to start the album with.
I did not know this band, never heard of this duo before but goddamn, Seaxes is awesome. Their Ep is out now on The Ghost is Clear Records and they make this superenergetic punk and noiserock that really makes you hyped up and ready to destroy some shit. really loud and cool stuff, tune in now.
Favourite track: Fin
It is quite incredible what kind of bands I am discovering thanks to my new African list. Someone commented I forgot about this band called Return To Worm Mountain wich seems to be a two piece between the the singer / guitarist of Black Math and some strange individual. Their music absolutely rules and they have just a new album out called ‘Therianthropy’ (it is about monsters). The album is released on Forbidden Place Records. Tune in enjoy some heaviness.
Okay, I found a lot of new music from Japan again, again from friends and forums and fb groups and researching myself. This psychedelic/noise stuff from Japan is unending and is the most incredible stuff. This post is just the update with the bands I added. For the who list click on ‘The Cosmic Side of Japan’.
Going to start with my favourite new discovery which is a collaboration between Space Streakings and Mount Shasta. They released an album together called “Space Streakings Sighted Over Mount Shasta” wich is absolutely gorgeous. You can fin Saxophones, noise, and other explosive stuff on this godlike album!
Mady Gula Blue Heaven
This is a softer project wich nice hazy psychedelic elements. In th ememenbers of this band I recognize Cotton Casino from Acid Mothers Temple and other projects. Take breath and listen to Mady Blue Heaven.
Magical Power Mako
I think we all agree I am sharing music that is way beyond crazy, I have fallen deep in the pit of crazy japanese psych and noise, so why stop now? lets go deeper! Let us listen to Magical Power Mako’s album ‘Super Record’ from 1975′.
“Sooner or Later” is from 1987 on the P.S.F. label where you can find an awfull lot of these releases.
Up-Tight & Makoto Kawabata
Another obscure recording from Up-Tight with Makoto Kawabata (from Acid Mothers and like 1500 other projects).
Okay, I am having some trouble with this one. I think the band name is 88KasyoJunrei. I am not entirly sure but they make some cool punk/noise. It is also a fresh change from all these bands from the seventies. It seems these guys are young and rockin.
This list is getting so long I even have no idea if I have something featurering Keiji Haino. Well, here is something pretty alien. Tune in for ‘Continuously Draw a Gentle Spiral… Red Death!’ released in 1998 on the New Japan Label.
