Xetas release “The Cypher”

“The Cypher” is the new album by Austin punkers Xetas. It is released friday 24 on 12XU and it needs te be free and out in the world. Xetas makes the kind of punk you get happy when listening to but it is still loud an heavy enough to feel tough listening too. There is a bonus too, they make nice low budget vids that are fun to watch. Can you sing along with Xetas? Yes! Can you feel glad when listening to it? Yes! Are you still a heavy person with a good taste in music when you listen to Xetas? Yes!

Be cool and tough and listen to Xetas.

“How Skeletonized Is Made” by How Things Are Made with Skeletonized

I love long titles and I love Skeletonized so you can imagine my joy when I heard there was going to be a collaborative album between the Pennsylvania experimental noisejazz band Skeletonized and the Pennsylvania experimental trio How Things Are Made. The album starts of great with some eerie wild sax and ambient stuff on the background instantly setting the  vibe for this album. On the rest of the album we can hear that these two bands are pretty damn serieus about it, heavy drums, repetitive sax and experiments creat the most eerie weird jazz vibe ever and i love it. Tune in for some weirdness now.

Baklavaa releases vid for “A Thousand Dinners”

If I type Baklavaa in google I get this =>

Afbeeldingsresultaat voor baklava

Is this the meaning of the band? Does this band has something to do with Turkish sweet dessert Baklava that has layers of phyllo sheets filled with nuts and full of extremely sweet syrup? Or nothing at all? I haven’t got a clue. What I do know is that it is a band from Baltimore wich makes the most sweet mix of noiserock and grunge and experimental music. They will release their new album “Sleep Running” February 28 with 20/20 records (vinyl) and Crass Lips records (tape).

Now we get the second track and video from the band. Tune in and watch “A Thousand Dinners”.

The Body, Lingua Ignota, and Full of Hell members form Sightless Pit

Well this is a supergroup! A trio all with an eclectic music taste thrown together in a band called Sightless Pit. They shared a first track and it is quite amazing. The experimental industrial sound on “Kingscorpse” is absolutely epic and brutal. The track is from their upcoming album “Grave of A Dog” and will be released February 21 on Thrill Jockey. This bleak piece of heaviness is best on very high volume. tune in now.

Dead Neanderthals gift us “Mankind”

Dead Neanderthals is a band I am a bit addicted too, if they are too long gone I feel an itch and that itch needs to be scratched and luckily Dead Neanderthals release a lot of music. “Ghost” was released back in September and ended on my end of the year list because of its eerie amazingness. This band is best at creating hypnotic atmospheres and they can do this with ambient, noise, metal or weirdness all together, but they always succeed. On their new track that is called “Mankind” and is 13 minutes long they succeed again. Hypnotic drone rock bordering on the post metal at its best.

Tune in and enjoy.

Austrian Underground: Epileptic Media

Austria, home of a Milka Chocolate factory, home of more then 90 lakes, home of the sachertorte, birthplace of Arnold Schwarzenegger, designers of the most incredibel camper Marchi Mobile but also the home of Andreas, the founder of Epileptic Media, a label for all kinds of weirdo music (some reasonably normal ones too). The label was born somewhere in 2009 and I want to share some of the music that is on the label. Very important to mention is that Andreas makes most of the artwork wich is absolutely stunning and I will drop a pic of those here and there.

Andreas is also a part of Omega World Order wich has stunning merch.

I am going to start with the most recent release and work my way down. Prepare yourself for some pretty cool music.

States of Clay

Seven experimental tracks on this album that is called “Jona Dares”. From dreampop to no wave to noiserock all in one album! I have to say though that the track “Ashes to the Ground” is an absolutely amazing track and you need to hear it.

Mozo Mozo, Walser, Nadeshda, Didi Kern & Philipp Quehenberger

A 4-Way split is always awesome. Mozo Mozo gives us experimental jazznoise, Walser takes it a bit more easier with 13 minutes of ambient drone and then Nadesha unleashes 15 minutes of eerie ambient. Then 16 tracks by Didi Kern & Philipp Quehenberger of a something I have no idea how to describe.


Marloe

On “Found + Lost” Marloe delivers some really nice soundscapes and experimental techno tracks. “B02 Artificial” my favourite track of the thing.

Oort Cloud

we got an experimental one again. This time Oort Cloud gives us  soundscapes and experimental bleeps.


Puke Puddle

Intens eerie industrial sounds by Puke Puddle on the latest “Detox”


epilept


SE Mustard Terrorist

Very creepy futuristic electronic punk loop noise. This is probably already a genre but I baptize this music Floop music.

The Mild

Aha! here we have something else, something thats sounds a bit as if a posthardcore dude got kicked in the face by a death meatel drum machine that only listen to grindcore.


Tsujigiri

Still in the noiserock/grindcore/weird spectrum is Tsujigiri who released “Demoh!” in 2015.


epiiii


Dirt Deflector

We have reached a very strange moment in the timeline of Epileptic Media. its seems the label released a very normal and cool sounding band wich can be described simply as stoner.


Henry Fonda

Another spastic grindcore powerviolence band. Please turn very loud to enjoy this.

This album has been growing on me for a while now and it keeps on getting better. It really got under my skin. So I decided to put them on my best of 2019 list.
