Watch a SLOW CRUSH video

Slow Crush’s 2018 debut album is one worth talking about. And the Belgian shoegazers have quite rightly taken every opportunity to do since its release. There have been a couple of vinyl presses, in a handful of appealing variants, and even a guitar pedal branded with the record’s artwork. Now, with a move to new labels (Church Road and Quiet […]

Listen to WELTRAUMRAUSCHEN

As far as I can tell, Weltraumrauschen is a one-man operation. If so, they make a mighty impressive, cohesive, and complete kind of sound. As far as I can tell, that name translates as space noise. If so, it’s pretty damn apt. Sure, there are some lo-fi burbles, bleak lyrics, and downer jams on the band’s debut album, ‘Nothing to […]

Listen to JOY IN BLUE

Joy in Blue formed last year. And that alone should be reason enough to give them a chance- finding like-minded musicians, starting a new band, and devoting time and energy to writing, practicing, and recording your first demos can be hard enough at the best of times, let alone in the middle of a pandemic. The Portsmouth four-piece don’t need […]

Entitled ‘The Raging River’, it’s due out February 5th 2021 via Metal Blade and the band’s own record label, Red Creek. However, I wouldn’t be surprised if a new song emerged tomorrow. There’s a bunch of different […]

They released an atmospheric full length titled ‘How’ve You Been?’ and a split EP with fellow Long Islanders Staleworth, and they were planning for the future. But then, in 2018, three of […]

Watch an IN PARALLEL video

Kind-of-supergroup In Parallel released their second record, ‘Fashioner’, at the start of September. And now there’s a video to accompany the final track, ‘Threat of Heaven’. It’s not much more than a lyric video with some fiery and timely imagery but I’ve totally fallen for the band’s woozy, slow-burn rock.

Listen to WE CARRIED THE BOAT

We Carried The Boat want your attention. If their unusual name doesn’t catch it, then their clever lyrics might. And if their unique story- an English dude and a Vietnamese dude making music in Japan- doesn’t get it, then their diverse music definitely will.  The Tokyo-based two-piece play livewire post-hardcore, influenced as much by sci-fi movies and Zelda as by […]
