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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Servotron

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

FOETUS

This is some nutty music. Its sounds like the 80’s Thank. This is from their 1985 album “Wash & Slog”.

 

New releases by Girl Band, Melvins/Flipper, Ty Segall, Juju, Psychic Graveyard, Christian Fitness, Psychedelic Porn Crumpets and Sonic Youth

I have been on holiday for a while and it is incredible just how many great releases and new music is out in such a short period. So tune in for the latest goodies in noiserock and psychedelic rock.

Girl Band

Let us start with new music from Girl Band, it has been four years since the release of ‘Holding Hands With Jamie’ wich was an absolute masterpiece of weirdness and heaviness in their own original way. Now they will release a new record called ‘The Talkies’ and will be released September 27 on Rough Trade (wich is three days from my birthday so i know what i will get already).

They released a video for their new track ‘Shoulderblades’ wich is exactly everything i could hope for. Girl Band is back and ready to destroy.

And it does not stop after the new Girl Band and a Melvins/Flipper 10″. Nope the garagemaster Ty Segall drops a new track called ‘Taste’ from his upcoming album ‘First Taste’ wich will be out August 2 on Drag City. I would love to say; Have a taste of the new track ‘Taste’ from his upcoming album ‘First Taste’, but everyone has said this already.  So check out the track and accompanied video now!

Juju

Juju (Gioele Valenti) is by now a known force in the psychedelic rock scene (Herself /Llay Lamas). His previous album ‘Her Mother Was A Plant’ was gorgeous piece of exotic psych.

His new work ‘Maps and Territory’ deals with exotic and hazy psych and is again an instant hit for me. Out on Fuzz Club.

Psychic Graveyard

I kinda forgot about Psychic Graveyard, wich is a shame because Psychic Graveyard rules.

Psychic Graveyard features members of Arab on Radar, Chinese stars, Doomsday Student and All Leather, Some Girls and Hot Nerds.

I absolutely love bands that do something different, and on ‘Loud As Laughter’ I get that original, wild and crazy vibe i love so much.

Their album ‘Loud As Laughter’ was released May 17 on Skin Graft Records.

Christian Fitness

Multiple personality one man punk band Christian Fitness released his (their) new album ‘you are the ambulance’.

Filled to the brim with energy this is one hell of an album. Fun from start to finish. Best enjoyed with a fresh brew.


Psychedelic Porn Crumpets

These Australian dudes have been making a name for themselves the past years and they deserve it, everything they make ends in good psychedelic rock. Tune in for their latest album ‘And Now for the Whatchamacallit’ thats released May 31.
