Beech Creeps
Beech Creeps

Beach Creeps' debut record is a chunky slice of emotive alt-rock, with guitars muted and then squeezed until all the strings have lost their life and are all tucked out. With a vocal obscured in the mix that recalls Superchunk but less clear, they use a base approach to shoegaze as a way of distorting the view and making the sunny weather seem less than perfect.

Spray Paint
Clean Blood, Regular Acid

Spray Paint are a loose and chilled out noise rock outfit with abrasive production, sharp guitar riffs and dual vocals that recall a stoned Parquet Courts staring blankly into space. The energy is there, but it's used leisurely, as if the band can rip through these songs without blinking. 'Clean Blood, Regular Acid' is ramshackle post-punk that's mumbled, shouted and shrugged -- but never truly articulated.

Lié
Truth Or Consequences

Lié are a tightly-wound spring of post-punk potency, ready to lash out at any moment. Truth Or Consequences is their second full-length, and it sounds like serious business: every instrument has been dyed black and bitterly well-informed lyrics are howled in the listener’s face. Crucial. Vinyl release on Monofonus Press.

Matchess
The Rafter

Despite releasing a couple of records on generally garage rock label Trouble in Mind, Matchess is a much more sedate affair. Matchess is in fact Whitney Johnson from Chicago lot Verma and she makes sweeping synth and kosmische compositions with nods towards Cabaret Voltaire, minimal synth as well as the ghostly likes of Grouper.  

Thor Harris
An Ocean Of Dispair

Spray Paint
Dopers

Spray Paint are an Austin, Texas group of post-punk activists, and Dopers is their fifth record, as well as being their second record of this year. Full credit for that work ethic. Their music is audibly the product of a tight discipline crossed with an ecstatic energy. The LP is available on Monofonus Press.

Ixtab Compilation Series, Volume 1

The first of what is promised to be several compilations, Ixtab Compilation Series, Volume 1 has tracks by Interbrain, Samoln, Idea Fire Company and BRRR, and Empfänger. A wild variety of names and a wild variety of cosmic disco sounds. A groovy, colourful compilation on Monofonus Press, limited to 300 copies.
  • Vinyl LP (MF095)

Marriage
Pool Blunt

Marriage are a band of ne'er-do-wells making their scrappy music out of a grab-bag of random instrumentation. In their press release for Pool Blunt they boast that their songs sound improvised are actually carefully learned, meaning that they have deliberately targeted this messy sound. Good on them. Released by Monofonus Press.

Ghetto Ghouls
Collisions

Album number two from Ghetto Ghouls, an Austin, Texas group. Their first record was more of a scuzz-punk explosion, but Collisions is somewhat more restrained. Although let's be clear, this is the tense kind of restraint, that could kick out again at any moment. LP release on the label Monofonus Press.

We Jam By Condos

The excellent and clever title of We Jam By Condos sets off the tone for the music within: we’ve got tracks from Shit & Shine, Ghetto Ghouls, Empty Markets… The compilation oversees the Austin Texas underground scene, moving through, punky stuff, noisey stuff and electronic stuff. Things are sounding good over in Austin! On Monofonus Press.

The Rebel
K Rot

Avant-garde rambler Ben Wallers has used a variety of wonderfully obnoxious bands as vehicles for his taunting, such as post-punkers the Country Teasers, but now goes under a new alias: The Rebel. Some ecstatically mumbled vocals are dug deep into the mix of frenetic keys and ramshackle programmed drums, and the result is something like a less wordy Sleaford Mods doing a version of Pavement's "Hit The Plane Down".
  • Vinyl LP (MF067)

Trans Upper Egypt
Trans Upper Egypt

The self-titled sophomore release from Italians Trans Upper Egypt delivers an intoxicating blend of ratatat rhythms, psych-soaked vocals and krautrock repetition. Summoning the freedom of Damo Suzuki, it’s a hypnotic journey with the distant ghost of Hawkwind looming overhead. Out on vinyl LP from Monofonus Press.

Up Around The Sun
Up Around The Sun

Formally a member of Texas punk outfit The Big Boys, Up Around the Sun is a different vehicle entirely for singer-songwriter Tim Kerr. He's teamed up with claw hammer banjo-maestro Jerry Hagins and recorded a lively album of old-time songs. Loads of fiddle, harmonica and banjo and a rollicking good thigh-slapper it is. It's on vinyl and it's ace.

Love Inks
Generation Club

A soft, supremely subliminal record from Love Inks here, who continue to understand the need for the minimal and the understated in drama. Generation Club is the band's dreamiest work on display, with "Solar Diary" treading a middle-ground pace as Sherry LeBlanc intones softly and hazily. Altogether nice vibes.
