More records in on Sophomore Lounge this week! These guys are fast becoming one of my favourite labels, in fact the Lantern LP they put out is our album of the week at the time of writing, and here’s something altogether more abrasive in the form of a split LP by Guerilla Toss and Sediment Club released in conjunction with Feeding Tube Records.
Starting off with the Guerilla Toss side, then, they play a kind of sand-blasting noise rock with angry banshee shrieks and aggressive sheet metal guitars and a pounding intensity which makes me think of the face-shredding art-noise intensity of contemporaries like Divorce, Burmese, Tropical Trash and Leeds’s finest anarcho-feminist rabble rousers Etai Keshiki, but with a cheeky complexity to their high end splatter grooves which recalls the classics like Arab on Radar, Melt Banana or Lightning Bolt. Li’l Biz says it sounds like AIDS Wolf. It sounds like it could’ve come out on Skin Graft ten years ago basically. Everyone in the office likes it.
If you turn the record over you can hear six songs by Sediment Club, who rock the power-trio setup with bass, drums, guitar and two singers. Their formula seems to consist of the drums and bass holding the structures down with pounding repetitive grooves, while the guitar shears through everything with a mess of mangled top-end which ranges from teetering on the verge of falling apart to splay-fingered and spontaneous clank’n’screech weirdness. It's high quality no wave informed hypno noise. Both bands display a clear ability to dish out the heavy shit in distinctive and interesting ways.
