Melvins
The Maggot & The Bootlicker

Cunts
Cunts

I suppose it was only a matter of time before there was a band called Cunts. This lot are from Los Angeles and are made up from members of the bands Festival Of Dead Deer, Retox, Dead Cross, Hepa.Titus, Orphan Goggles, Virginia Reed, Kill The Capulets, Planet B and Qui. Their reason for giving themselves such a name is to fly in the face of all the ridiculous nonsense that people in positions of power seem to get away with saying these days. Totally unapologetic, their self-titled debut album serves as a soundtrack to the demise of society, albeit self-inflicted.

Mike Patton & Jean-Claude Vannier
Corpse Flower

Recorded in between Paris and Los Angeles as a result of a meeting between acclaimed French composer Jean-Claude Vannier and Faith No More’s frontman Mike Patton eight years ago, new collaboration album Corpse Flower is alive with invention and professional simpatico. Lyrics for the first track are lovingly borrowed from one Oscar Wilde.

Spotlights
Love & Decay

Love & Decay. Is there anything else? Not for Spotlights there ain’t. The Brooklyn group’s third LP is another set of heavyweight instrumental rock numbers. Across these eight tracks the band bring together the thick bottom-end of sludge metal, the sky-scraping ambiences of shoegaze and that sort of emoish post-rock thing American Football and Mineral are so well-known for. Love & Decay is out via Ipecac (Daughters, Omar Rodriguez-Lopez).

Daughters
You Won't Get What You Want

The first Daughters LP for Ipecac Records (Mike Patton, Faith No More) finds the grindcore-turned-noise-punk band in good nick. You Won’t Get What You Want is a ten-song set that, while heavy as ever, sees Daughters expand their palette to good effect. ‘Satan In The Wait’, for instance, is a seven-minute vaudeville punk number that is both ghoulish and caustic. More straightforward rockers like ‘The Reason They Hate Me’ have something of the Pissed Jeans about them.

Planet B
Planet B

Star-studded, self-titled debut album by hot new electro-hardcore duo Planet B (Justin Pearson of Dead Cross, Retox and The Locust plus Luke Henshaw of Sonido de la Frontera). They are joined by fellow Locusts Gabe Serbian and Joseph Karam, Kool Keith, Nick “Yeah Yeah Yeahs” Zinner, Killing Joker Martin Atkins… the list could go on.

Split Cranium
I’m The Devil and I’m OK

Six years on from debut LP and d-beat/anarcho-punk supergroup Split Cranium serve up the sophomore. Given that the band features members of Converge, Circle, Mammifer and many more, I’m The Devil And I’m Ok was never going to go in with a soft touch. What’s notable here is how the band balances out the ferocious screams and pounding drums with some pretty melodic riffs. Out via Mike Patton’s Ipecac Recordings (Zu, Daelek, loads more).

Melvins
Pinkus Abortion Technician

"BASS, how low can you go" as Chuck D once said, well pretty low when you combine A.) The Melvins stoner sludge rock and B.) two, yes TWO bass players, expect Buzz Osborne's usual brand of Godzilla sized riffs with the addition of Butthole Surfers four stringer Jeff Pinkus and Melvins/Redd Kross/Off! bassist Steven McDonald adding bowel expelling bottom end to 'Pinkus Abortion Technician'.

Dead Cross
Dead Cross

Dead Cross (2018, Ipecac), not to be confused with Dead Cross (2017, Ipecac), is the latest headbanging release by Southern California weird hardcore/metal supergroup Dead Cross (2015 - present, Ipecac). They’re Mike Patton, Dave Lombardo, Justin Pearson and Michael Crain, and their EP consists of two hyperactive new songs and two remixes of songs from last year’s album.

Mike Patton
1922 (Original Music From The Netflix Film)

Faith No More/Tomahawk/Fantomas/Peeping Tom frontman Mike Patton has composed the score to the Netflix film 1922. The film is based on a Stephen King novella. The score is mainly orchestral with foreboding strings, however, you can expect the odd cacophonous burst, typical of Mike Patton. Coloured vinyl LP and CD on Ipecac.

Spotlights
Hanging By Faith

Hanging By Faith contains four remixes from Seismic, the 2017 album by ethereal goth metalers, Spotlights.The 5-track EP features remixes by Kris Dirksen, Mario Quintero, Aaron Harris, Void Manes and is rounded off with a cover of The Cure’s Faith. The Brooklyn-based three-piece balance dark, powerful, light and delicate with aplomb. Limited edition white vinyl LP on Ipecac.

Spotlights
Seismic

Husband and wife team Mario and Sarah Quintero have been sat at home worrying about the state of the world. But instead of blanking it out with some Celebrity Love Island they've made an album of ultra intense dream rock that has garnered comparisons to Hum, My Bloody Valentine and Isis (the band...as the press release helpfully points out). 

Dälek
Endangered Philosophies

Dalek have long been one of our favourite bands here at the Towers. They have constantly been striving to blend Public Enemy styled socially conscious hip-hop with the sorts of vicious noise that appears on records by the likes of My Bloody Valentine, Flying Saucer Attack and Young Gods. It's an intoxicating brew that never loses it's power. This is their 7th album and sees them back in Ipecac records. 

Dead Cross
Dead Cross

ANOTHER supergroup fronted by Mike Patton (Faith No More, Fantomas) with Dave Lombardo (Slayer, Misfits, Suicidal Tendencies), Justin Pearson (The Locust, Head Wound City) and Michael Crain (Retox). Enough name dropping. Think Fantomas but with Justin Pearson… wait.. It is furious and completely batshit… but with less crazy electronics, more riffs, and Lombardo’s double pedal given it’s full use.

Valve Studio Orchestra
The DOTA 2 (Official Soundtrack)

DOTA 2 is a multiplayer online battle game which is one of the biggest esports in the world, with millions of players, followers and dollars in prize money up for grabs for the competitions. What music do you have that fits axe wielding orcs and sword swinging knights? Only the most epic of course. Massive. Orchestral. Epic. Released through Ipecac.

Melvins
A Walk With Love & Death

A Walk With Love & Death is a brand new album by Melvins in trio mode, and its a double! Split into a Death disc and a Love disc, and featuring guest appearances from the likes of The Pixies’ Joey Santiago and Teri Gender Bender, these hefty slabs of Melvins show off different angles of what this amazing band can do. Double CD and double LP editions, each housed in a sturdy box. On Ipecac.

Valve Studio Orchestra
Fight Songs: The Music of Team Fortress 2

Ipecac continue to excel in the “what?!” category, pressing the soundtrack to multiplayer first person shoot ‘em up game Team Fortress 2. Celebrating it’s 10 year anniversary, and it is still going strong, and still receives critical acclaim. Vinyl comes with Audio download code and poster, both versions come with game download code.

ISIS
Live VII 02.25.10

After more than making their mark on the post-metal scene with albums such as Celestial, Oceanic and Panopticon ISIS abruptly announced their break-up in 2010, stating that they had done what they set out to achieve. Live VII is a second release ofter the fact, documenting a live performance in Australia months before the end. For fans of Neurosis, Cult of Luna and Swans.

Crystal Fairy
Crystal Fairy

Crystal Fairy is pretty much a heavy-and-complex-music supergroup, including two Melvins, Teri Gender Bender of Le Butcherettes and Omar Rodriguez-Lopez of The Mars Volta and At The Drive-In. Christ. Naturally, this muscular blend of musicians results in some tight, thick-sounding, heavy rock songs that should appeal to fans of all involved parties. Debut album out on Ipecac.

Melvins
Basses Loaded

This Melvins album is named Basses Loaded because it is packed to the gills with notable bass players, up to a total of 6! As well as the regulars, we have Steve McDonald of Red Kross and OFF!, Jeff Pinkus of Butthole Surfers, and Krist Novoselic of goddamn Nirvana. All contributing to the Melvins maelstrom of low-end heavy. Pow.

Kaada / Patton
Bacteria Cult

Bacteria Cult sees Faith No More frontman and all-round experimental do-gooder Mike Patton partner with soundtrack composer Kaada. The pair actually recorded another album 12 years ago, but this blend of Patton’s singular vocal talents, cinematic music cues and rich composition is as fresh as possible.

Melvins
Across The USA In 51 Days: The Movie

Merchants of heavy sludge The Melvins evidently have a lot of stamina: not only have they been playing and releasing for many decades, they also undertook a 50 state US tour in 51 days back in 2012: wow. Across The USA In 51 Days: The Movie is just that, a document of that tour shot mostly on the band’s phones for that intimate touch. An essential DVD for Melvins fans.

Le Butcherettes
Shave The Pride

Le Butcherettes are a rock group with a dangerous feel to them. Led by singer and whirlwind personality Teri Gender Bender, they grind out fully-fledged rock music, Teri’s snarl setting the tone. The Shave The Pride single is backed by an exclusive B-side that features King Buzzo of The Melvins.

Le Butcherettes
A Raw Youth

Le Butcherettes are a rock group with a dangerous feel to them. Led by singer and whirlwind personality Teri Gender Bender, they grind out fully-fledged rock music, Teri’s snarl setting the tone. The guests (Iggy Pop and John Fruiscante) give some clue to the sort of tone we are dealing with here. On Ipecac.

Mark Lanegan
Houston: Publishing Demos 2002

To date, Mark Lanegan has put out one more studio album as a solo artist than he did with his grunge-era rock band The Screaming Trees. His solo career, which has taken in bar room whiskey ballads, dark hard rock and electronica, started whilst he was still with The Screaming Trees. Around the time the band split in 2002 he set to work on some demos. The recordings had been shelved but are now available on the 12 song collection, Houston: Publishing Demos 2002.

Melvins
The Bulls & The Bees + Electroretard

Sonically weighty favourites The Melvins here reissue a pair of out-of-print releases together: The Bulls & The Bees and Electroretard. Sludged riffs rule supreme here, as ever on Melvins records, and the tracklisting contains a few gems, like a cover of Pink Floyd’s classic jam ‘Interstellar Overdrive’. Wow!

Zu
Cortar Todo

‘Cortar Todo’ is the new full length album by Italian, experimental instrumentalists Zu, released on California based, independent label Ipecac Recordings. Recorded in the heart of the Bologna countryside in the summer of 2014 the album features a host of guest artists including Italian guitar maverick Stefano Pilia, known for his collaborations with Mike Watt, David Grubbs and Rokia Traore and keyboard player Joey Karam of The Locust.

tetema
Geocidal

A high-concept attempt to break down geographical barriers from supergroup of sorts Tetema. A collaboration between Mike Patton and Anthony Pateras, Geocidal looks at the death of place, finding beauty in cacophony and uniquely orchestrated curveballs. Featuring no less than twelve musicians it’s a richly textured work of exotica. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Ipecac.

Guano Padano
Americana

Guano Padano's Italian jazz 'n' swing heroics are on display once again with 'Americana', named after the book of translated American works literary mind Ello Vittorini hoped to bring to Italy in the 1940s. Padano let their fascination with Vittorini's undertaking, as well as with American writers, bleed through the songs of 'Americana', marrying their distinctly Italian sound with American grandstanding. 

Melvins
Hold It In

Their first full-length as a quartet since 2010’s 'The Bride Screams Murder', ‘Hold It In’ marks yet another return for Washington’s ever-prolific Melvins, this time with the addition of guitar-proficient Paul Leary and JD Pinkus (Butthole Surfers), joining originals and sole constants Buzz Osbourne and Dale Crover. Recorded between Washington and Austin earlier this year, ‘Hold It In’ promises to be a “refreshing piece of fiction in a boring world of fact and bullshit” according to Osborne. Sounds about right! 

Le Butcherettes
Cry Is For The Flies

Mexican garage rockers Le Butcherettes are back for more screaming and fussing, with their second record to date, 'Cry Is For The Flies'. The record offers eleven rapid-fire tunes with basic rock tactics and the venomous vocals of Teri Gender Bender. 'Cry Is For The Flies' is another ferocious, bumpy ride that incorporates distinctly dissonant moments, but is characterised by melodic hooks and a refusal to go quietly.
