Homeless Vinyl, CD & tapes from this label at Norman Records
The Australian noise rock scene has been erupting with bands lately, and Melbourne's Deaf Wish are yet another band who open the curtain with dissonant guitar chords, snarling vocals and a strong dedication to rhythm that keeps the whole thing from falling apart. Their only recording process is to "go to feedback", and these ten songs crackle with a post-hardcore energy that's only interrupted by bitty noise nonsense. In short: graaaaaaaaaaagh.

Rare old material from Bend Sinister, the Seattle noise punk scuzzballs who did their thing in the late 90’s. Tape2 adds to the very slender Bend Sinister discography with a bunch of studio and practice space recordings that capture the band’s fiercely loud and distorted punk howlings. Vinyl release from Homeless Records.
Seven long years have passed since The Dacios’ debut album, seeing Bonnie Mercer playing in several outfits, including Dumb Numbers and Little Desert Disco in the meantime. Reuniting with their follow up, Beyond The Bottom Hour channels energetic, noisy art rock of Sonic Youth with a garage punk rock lo-fi joy.
Men With Chips are an Adelaide, Australia outfit with a messed-up approach to music. Do they play no-wavey punk music which sometimes collapses into free jazz blurts, or is it the other way round? The continual use of wind instruments makes it impossible to say, so you’d better just go with the scuzzy flow. Attention Spent is out on Homeless, limited to 400 LP copies.
Brisbane punks Clever make a raucous high-speed music with strange math-rock structures and eccentric shouted vocals. Kewdi Udi is a horrifically great fusion of nihilistic hardcore and fearsome noise rock, where every song is a two-minute explosion of ideas and distortion. On vinyl LP from Homeless.

Spray Paint / EXEK
Spray Paint are an Austin, Texas post-punk group, with a music that is audibly the product of a tight discipline crossed with an ecstatic energy. Here they share a split with Australians Exek, who synth up their post-punk sound. 400 7" copies pressed up for an Australian tour, released by the Homeless label.

Unpolished, and harsh, Spray Paint pack a lot of energy. From the barren streets of Austin, TX, they have chosen vinyl as their medium for unleashing their no wave punk upon us: Punters on a Barge harbors paranoid, atonal tracks that will have you jump awake in the night. Which is totally our kind of jam.
Cuntz are, obviously, well hardcore, spitting out noisy garage punk with not a care in the world. Third album Force The Zone offers more of the Australian trio’s gnarly thrashing: they sound like they’ve spent too long in the Yabba and it has warped their minds. Limited edition of 600 copies of this LP on Homeless.
Snarling rock 'n' roll that requires at least one person to be wearing a jacket: The Dacios came out of old band Little Ugly Girls, fronted by ferocious vocalist Linda J and backed by a band who wanted to make a truly dirty sound. Their record, 'Monkey's Blood', is now finally seeing reissue on vinyl through Homeless.
'Mission Bulb' is the record and Yes I'm Leaving are the band -- and they are pissed off pretty much all the time. A straight-up noise rock act with only the grittiest elements of their post-hardcore influences, they've created something pummelling and punishing with 'Mission Bulb'. It recalls early era Unwound, back when the notorious noise rockers weren't dispirited and quiet and still screamed their heads off. Homeless Records are releasing the Sydney band's record once more, hoping it won't go unnoticed this time, and will knock out at least half of the people who listen to it. Recommended for fans of rackets and guitar tones that don't want to be your friend -- 'Mission Bulb' is kind of like the second coming of Shotmaker.
Yes I'm Leaving are a cruel and tough-as-nails noise rock band from Sydney, who take influence from grainy guitar bands of old and the nastier side of post hardcore -- none of that twinkly stuff. Their new record, 'Slow Release', is being released on Homeless Records, and shows off more of their kinetic energy, hypnotic grooving and utter destruction. Enjoy some more good time rasping.
