Listen to SÂVER

SÂVER are fan-fucking-tastic. The Oslo trio (whose name means “to be asleep”, a word which even native Norwegians apparently struggle to pronounce) play scorched-earth metal, roiling doom, and downtuned, downhearted synth-drone that’s designed to destroy eardrums and souls alike but only makes me smile from ear to ear. Their debut full-length, ‘They Came With Sunlight’ is out on Pelagic Records […]

Listen to HAIR PULLER

A little indulgence is good for the soul. Patience and control have their place, sure, but sometimes it’s good to go hard and cut loose, right? Hair Puller live by this impulse. The Portland trio mix screwface hard rock riffs with raw adrenaline and a ton of fun sludge without ever stopping to think if they should. Their debut album, […]

Listen to RED HARE

There’s some history here. Red Hare feature current and former members of Bluetip, Retisonic, Dag Nasty, Swiz, and Sweetbelly Freakdown among their ranks. If you’re familiar with their past output then Red Hare won’t come as much of a surprise, except maybe to hear how urgent these elder statesmen still sound. The unacquainted should prepare for some fast, furious rock-punk […]

Listen to THE YACHT CLUB

The Yacht Club began life as a solo endeavor of frontman Marcus Gooda but have now bloomed into a full band and it sounds like they were always meant to be this way. The London-based outfit have turned tragedy- the death of a close friend- into triumph with the release of their debut full-length, ‘The Last Words That You Said […]

Listen to NŪR

It’s funny that NŪR’s upcoming EP is called ‘Light Emerges’. Because the Israeli outfit deal exclusively in black, choking riffs, dark, acrid doom, and slow-motion sludge so thick that almost nothing can shine through. Excellent aural punishment for fans of Minsk, Neurosis, and Old Man Gloom.

Listen to WORRIEDABOUTSATAN

I mean, obviously. Always listen to worriedaboutsatan. Gavin Miller and Tom Ragsdale have been exploring uniquely organic electronica for over a decade now, never really putting a foot wrong, and if you haven’t been listening to them this whole time already, you’ve missed out. This reminder is timely though, as both halves of the Yorkshire outfit have new solo material […]

Listen to A SWARM OF THE SUN

A Swarm of the Sun may need no introduction. The Swedish post-rock outfit have released three increasingly-good albums already and played with some of the titans of their genre. However, their long-form, melancholy, mostly minimalist sound doesn’t scream hype or hard sell, and their fourth full-length, ‘The Woods’, absolutely should not be missed. Out next week, it’s comprised of three […]
