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...view item »


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 th...view item »


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 sound...view item »


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...view item »


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.  ...view item »


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 To...view item »


Chelsea Wolfe
Pain is Beauty

Oh my pile! My Pile! Who to choose first, I can barely contain my excitement. Lets try Chelsea Wolfe. She is a lady who looks, from the sleeve, like the brunette ‘Papa Don’t Preach’-era Madonna in a hall of mirrors. She came to my attention via her bleak EP of...view item »


Boris
Attention Please

Boris, who are well known as masters of the heavier-than-you-think-possible guitar-noise genre, are forced out of their comfort zone, quite probably by vocalist Wata's desire to branch out. As in breathy ballads and atmospherically shifting soundstages and 12-string guitars. This is a moody mostly-electric masterpiece. For the very small proport...view item »


Chelsea Wolfe
Apokalypsis

‘Aokalypsis’ is Chelsea Wolfe’s tirade against the ‘singer-songwriter’ record, a term it’s obvious she’s both disgusted by and interested in making disgusting. Instead of making a directly confrontational record, akin to the more delicate, guitar-orientated gothic rock of ...view item »

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 he...view item »


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 ...view item »


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 writi...view item »

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, Deer...view item »


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 g...view item »

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...view item »


Russian Circles
Station

Totally overwhelmed with stock today so let's be brief. A CD on Suicide Squeeze next from from Russian Circles called 'Station' which is in an appealing digipak set up complete with sepia tinged photos of forces types parading for a group mug shot prompting the question....Would any of these chaps (for they look to be all geezers) have approved of ...view item »


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 ...view item »

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 compositi...view item »


Chelsea Wolfe
Unknown Rooms: A Collection of Acoustic Songs

Here we get to indulge in an atmosphere-drenched album of dusky American chamber-folk from a woman who is apparently a heavier sounding proposition on her previous recordings. I've not heard them therefore this disc will have to stand on its own merits. She has a lovely regret-tinged voic...view item »


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 S...view item »


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 writhi...view item »


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....view item »


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 ...view item »


Boris
Pink - Deluxe Edition

OK onto Boris who has a new album out on that fun Southern Lord album. So we were listening to this the other day and it mightily rocks indeed. It's much more melodic than I thought it would be and it sounds like a direct mash up of The Stooges, Melvins and My Bloody Valentine (again). If you want some decent ro...view item »


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 a...view item »


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...view item »

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...view item »


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....view item »


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, ...view item »

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;...view item »

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....view item »


Boris
Noise

I don't know what's happened to Boris. I was never a big fan anyway but 'Pink' really had a startling power that pricked my ears up. It's all been a bit downhill from there, however. They've transformed into this kind of "alternative" stadium band, retaining their dynamic structures and eclectic nature but...I dunno. It's all a little over-worth...view item »


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...view item »


Helms Alee
Sleepwalking Sailors

This new Helms Alee album is another step in a similar direction as the previous two but has more to do with the first record than the last one, which is the weakest out of the 3 I think. It has all the great bits from the first record, awesome harmonys, that crunching guitar sound which is so distin...view item »

Zorch
Zzoorrcchh

This is a very fun and interesting recording. I honestly do not know how to describe it, but you can go to bandcamp and listen to it. It's an amazing drummer and a great keyboard player. It's not dance music. It's not rock, I guess it's just Zorch. I saw these guys live and they put on a great show - where live drumming meets inventive multimedi...view item »

Marriages
Kitsune

Marriages amazes with this six song debut. Although the track list contains six songs, the record plays like one long song split into two sides. It is easy to hear the influence of Red Sparowes, especially in the bass lines, but make no mistake, this band is a separate entity. Emma Ruth Rundle's voice adds a pl...view item »

Tera Melos
Patagonian Rats

The first thing that strikes me about the new album “Patagonian Rats” from Tera Melos is that it is full of twiddly guitar riffs. But it’s messy in a wonderful way. The second thing I note is that these are songs, with singing. The songs suddenly shoot off with crazy guitar runs, like wat...view item »

Russian Circles

Russian Circles have been refining their post-metal chops for years now, with this being their fourth full-length offering to date. It's a total monster, too.

Russian Circles
Geneva

For me, Russian Circles have always strived, but failed to capture and reproduce their live show on record. Unfortunately they fail here, but that's not to say that it's not a good album - it just needs a little something to bring the noise out from the noise of everything else, otherwise this is a pretty standard noisecore post rock album with ...view item »

A dejected roast dinner from Chi-town fellas Russian Circles.
