Chelsea Wolfe
Hiss Spun

Over her five previous LPs, California’s Chelsea Wolfe has won many plaudits for her grand, gothic take on the classic singer-songwriter tradition. If Hiss Spun’s lead single ‘16 Psyche’ is anything to go by, all of the parts remain in good working order. If anything, Hiss Spun will probably up the doom-rock ante - Queens of the Stone Age axeman Troy Van Leeuwen appears frequently on the album, and it was recorded by Converge’s Kurt Ballou.

Miserable
Loverboy / Dog Days

Oakland, California artist Miserable (Kristina Esfandiari, also vocalist for King Woman) is back with a new album Loverboy / Dog Days, a combination of one reissued EP and one newun. The latter had to be rerecorded from scratch after a hard drive gave up the ghost. Good on Esfandiari for bouncing back, because now she has a tale of two EPs on one LP - first a bit of angstier rock, then some cheerier pop tunes.

TTNG
Animals Acoustic

This Town Needs Guns, and the record-buying public need new wax, so the two parties have come to an arrangement agreeable for both sides. TTNG (as they’re now known) have agreed to do a special version of debut LP Animals in order to mark its tenth birthday, and all the 12” fetishists out there with a penchant for folksified math-rock have agreed to go in for a few copies of it. Vinyl enthusiasts of the world, unite!

Dylan Carlson
Conquistador

Conquistador is the debut solo album from Dylan Carson. He was a founding member of Sub Pop drone metal band, Earth and will probably forever be known as the man who gave Kurt the gun. Carson says that the album soundtracks an imaginary western. Throughout he shows his ability to create powerful widescreen sounds, but also shows his deftness at knowing when space and quiet are the right sounds. LP and CD on Sargent Horse.

Emma Ruth Rundle
On Dark Horses

Oh I do love an Emma Ruth Rundle mystery. This week's instalment sees our intrepid sleuth come out of a personal nadir by moving home, getting a new friend and making a new album with other friends. This is heart on sleeve stuff, uncomfortable realties put to music in dark duets that recall Johnny and June.

  • CD (SH196CD)

Jaye Jayle
No Trail and Other Unholy Paths

The latest LP from the doom-mongers at Sargent House (Chelsea Wolfe, Boris) comes courtesy of Young Widows frontman Ewan Patterson in his Jaye Jayle guise. His powerfully charismatic performances on No Trail And Other Unholy Paths recall Tom Waits as well as Nick Cave at his most blood-and-thunder. Tracks like ‘Ode To Betsy’ would have had no problem slotting into Cave classics like Let Love In.

And So I Watch You From Afar
The Endless Shimmering

Belfastian four-piece And So I Watch You From Afar return for their fifth album The Endless Shimmering, recorded at the Machines With Magnets studio in Rhode Island, the US of A, during an inspiring nine-day snowstorm. Nine pieces whittled down from over 30, this carefully-chosen bunch of math-edged instrumental post-rock is as tight and grandiose as we’ve all come to expect from the band.
  • Vinyl LP (SH191LP)

Blis.
No One Loves You

Blis. made their first album No One Loves You several years ago, but the time has come to circulate it again for those newer fans who missed out the first time. The title lets you in on a hint that this record might not be full of grins and grooves, though there is certainly some heart behind the riffed-up evisceration of religion and other bad life things.

Tera Melos
Trash Generator

If math rock is your thing, then Tera Melos is also your thing. The fifth record from US math and experimental rockers Tera Melos entitled Trash Generator is a great addition to the genre. Incorporating a number of different textures, layers and elements to their music has enabled them to carry on with the sound they helped develop, but also keep real with the time period they find themselves in. Available on Vinyl LP and CD.

Chelsea Wolfe
The Grime and The Glow

Marrying the gentle intimacy of folk, the atmospheric voodoo of death rock, and the bleak, sullen nihilism of black metal, Wolfe's sound effectively cast a genre all her own: a cavernous rumble, marked by stuttering drums, ethereal synths, and a wash of guitar, all very much in the service of one of the most hypnotic, celestial voices in modern music.

Boris
Dear

New Boris album! Dear, released in the band’s twenty-fifth anniversary year, was distilled from three album’s worth of material down to this single CD (or double LP) statement. It’s a real blast of a thing, as heavy and crunchy as ever. Apparently the band were considering wrapping things up, but writing and recording Dear invigorated them: now it can invigorate you too! On Sargent House.

Big Walnuts Yonder
Big Walnuts Yonder

I was all ready to call this a supergroup until the press release specifically told me not to. Still though, with Mike Watt, Nels Cline and Greg Saunier all on board (so that’s representatives of Minutemen, The Stooges, Wilco, Deerhoof…), this group is inarguably quite something. This debut album from Big Walnuts Yonder is a spontaneously-combusted set of high-energy funky-skronky art-rock super-pop. Hard to describe, but a joy to hear! Out on Sargent House.
  • Vinyl LP (SH173LP)
  • CD (SH172CD)

Mutoid Man
War Moans

Mutoid Man is a power trio formed of a few metal veterans (from bands like Cave In and Converge) who decided to fully embrace the excellent absurdity of their chosen genre. So everything is cranked-up, riffed-up and deathed-up for maximum camp thrash power. War Moans, which features a guest appearance from Chelsea Wolfe, is out on Sargent House.

Emma Ruth Rundle / Jaye Jayle
Time Between Us

Three new tracks apiece from both Emma Ruth Rundle and Jaye Jayle here on this split album. Both play a form of brooding alternative rock, although rather different forms: Emma’s sound is lush and emotional and lends itself to an acoustic track, whereas Jaye are heavy and tense and motorik-driven. Time Between Us is released by the Sargent House label.

Mutoid Man
Bleeder

Stephen Brodsky (Cave In) and Ben Koller (Converge, All Pigs Must Die) head up Mutoid Man. Bizarrely enough it’s exactly how you can imagine a cross over of the Cave In and Converge worlds - blending catchy hooks and songwriting with pure balls, and all thoroughly thought through. 12” vinyl and Digipak CD on Sargent House.
  • Vinyl LP (SH143LP)

Emma Ruth Rundle
Marked For Death

There is plenty of drama in Emma Ruth Rundle’s music, as there probably should be on an album named Marked For Death. I mean drama in the classical sense: these songs trace out the movements of human emotion with remarkable clarity. Rundle’s voice and her ear for smoothly dark rock composition make this a strong solo effort. On Sargent House.

Chelsea Wolfe
Abyss

Chelsea Wolfe uses her fifth album to plumb the depths of the subconscious, via the medium of music that alternates between her intimate, close mic-ed murmurs and crashing heavy rock action. There is a strong sense of purpose in Abyss’ brutal contrasts: Wolfe has made a very good record here. On Sargent House.

Russian Circles
Guidance

Chicago trio Russian Circles return with another fierce album, their sixth. Guidance continues down the frighteningly-tight instrumental pathway they’ve been honing for years, building again and again to brute-power post-metal crescendos. A dense and writhing mass to thrill and excite. Released by Sargent House.
  • Vinyl LP (SH159LP)

Helms Alee
Stillicide

Helms Alee have an entirely blasted sound, as though every part of their heavy mathy rock has been cleansed with a highly-pressurised jet of sand. After that process, the songs on fourth album Stillicide come out taut and wiry and powerful, though still with some hard-won anthemic climaxes. Out on Sargent House.

TTNG
Disappointment Island

Bands putting out an album after a few years is like meeting an old friend: they’ve changed, but you still recognize them. Sometimes it’s great, sometimes not so much. This Town Needs Guns added a member and is now known as TTNG. And thankfully it’s not a let-down at all, despite being called Disappointment Island. The music is wonderfully upbeat, with complex time signature-changes drawing you in to listen closely.

A Dead Forest Index
In All That Drifts from Summit Down

In All That Drifts From Summit Down is the sprawling debut from A Dead Forest Index. The duo make a minimal acoustic music that focuses on powerful songwriting and post-rock structures. The melodies and harmonies are always pristine and memorable, but they incorporate textures from drone music as well.
  • Vinyl LP (SH151LP)
  • CD (SH150CD)

Russian Circles
Memorial

Russian Circles give us album number five of their sombre, drenched compositions. Indeed, this is a very layered thing - post-rock in the contemporary style of massive of guitar soundscapes suitable only for equally massive speakers, or headphones at least. Memorial is on CD and vinyl from Sargent House.

And So I Watch You From Afar
Heirs

And So I Watch You From Afar is the band name. (I know, right?) Anyway, their non-stop work ethic that sees them jetting all over the world to play for people all over the world has resulted in the attention to detail that they have put in to the making of their fourth album, Heirs. Ten songs made it on to the album out of thirty that were recorded for the project. They worked tirelessly night and day to make sure the final product was the best they could possibly make. The process was insular, the band didn’t listen to any other music in an attempt to make something that was truly theirs.

  • CD (SH136CD)

Marriages
Salome

Slick, shiny and smooth, but also cold as an unpleasant February, Marriages present their first full-length album, Salome. Lively drums underpin post-punk vocals that might be described as ‘epic’, and a synth / guitar combo with wide eyes. Available on CD or vinyl, from the Sargent House label.
  • Vinyl LP (SH133LP)
  • CD (SH132CD)

Mylets
Arizona

‘Arizona’ is the debut album release from Mylets aka Henry Kohen, a child genius, multi instrumentalist who became the youngest artist ever to be signed to LA based record label/ management company Sargent House. In spite of the complicated arrangement of Mylets one man orchestra, the songs are catchy, infectious pop songs at heart, realised through layers of symphonic vocal and guitar harmonies.

Tera Melos
Untitled

Pink coloured vinyl reissue of Tera Melos’ adventurous post-hardcore debut. It felt like for awhile every Sacramento punk trio wished it could make ‘Trout Mask Replica’, but these guys actually make it work. Frantic drumming, weird samples and jazzy, distorted guitars played in incomprehensible time signatures; don’t call it math rock...

Adebisi Shank
This Is The Third Album of a Band Called Adebisi Shank

While Adebisi Shank may be over, but their legacy lives on with this ace third album from the math-rock trio. Relentless, soaring, and quite a lot like a heavier version of winning on a Nintendo game, the band definitely went out on a high when they released this just before the split. Available on vinyl or CD.

Emma Ruth Rundle
Some Heavy Ocean

A highly accomplished debut solo album from Red Sparrows and Marriages singer Emma Ruth Rundle. Much like her band efforts, Some Heavy Ocean adopts a gothic-hued post-rock template to great effect. This time she lets her Elizabeth Frazer-esque voice fly above the instrumental soundscape. Except with actual words. Out on CD & vinyl LP from Sargent House.

Tera Melos
X'ed Out

Twiddle-dee twiddle-dee dee, it’s the math-rock life for me. To be fair Tera Melos have always proved themselves to be a damn sight more discerning than many of their self-indulgent peers. Their ability to combine technical showmanship with forthright post-hardcore and punk rock remains in good nick on new LP X’ed Out. All the usual comparisons hold - At The Drive In, Don Caballero, a little Minutemen...

This Town Needs Guns
13.0.0.0.0

A new generation of math kids is led by This Town Needs Guns, who assess the inventiveness and kinetic energy of bands like Ghosts and Vodka and Minus the Bear by way of the sadder, more melancholy works of early indie rock bands -- take the Smiths, and maybe some goth from the Cure. 13.0.0.0.0 shows how to meld pastoral finger-pickin' good times with the technical savvy of math rock.

Russian Circles
Enter

A dejected roast dinner from Chi-town fellas Russian Circles. Enter is getting the repress treatment, brimming with heavy post-rock sloggers and all the self-indulgent mathy guitar wankery you'd expect. I remember when this first came out in the mid-2000's along side bands like This Will Destroy You - it sounded a decade too late even then. Out on vinyl LP from Sargent House.
