Urdog- a band whose lifespan may have been somewhat transient, yet whose mysterious, mercurial musical force perforated for eons- originally released and performed their mantric form of viscous, “spacey psych” in 2003 in their native Providence Rhode Island, before seeking other pursuits in 2006; guitarist/vocalist Dave Lifieri began a record store, organist/vocalist Jeff Knoch moved …

FURNISHING a burgeoning buzz from just two singles – albeit uniquely abrasive, jazz/noise flecked singles- and a feverish clamour for their live shows, Cambridge’s Black Country, New Road quickly set themselves apart from both their contemporaries. The band were also praised as “the best band in the world” by The Quietus. Again, within just two …

ENDLINGS is the collaborative project of John Dieterich, guitarist with the ever bizarre, angular, captivating Deerhoof, and Navajo Nation ambient and field recordings voyager Raven Chacon. They’ve worked together once before, on their self-titled debut album of experimental abstraction for sicksicksick back in 2017; and they’ve got a new full-length set ready for us now, …

Their forthcoming album will be released May 29th via Joyful Noise Recordings. The visceral nature of the track’s title is oh-so similar to the commanding presence of the track’s instrumentation. A repeated, mathy guitar riff …

Modern Rituals release ‘This Is The History’ on heavyweight label Holy Roar later this month. March 20th sees the bands second album in stores and shipping worldwide. The Bristol via London based noise-rock crew unleash a far more dense low-end on this outing. Coupled with the unsettling incantations of angular melodies and the restless verve they’re known for. ‘This …

Popped down to Basecamp in Middlesbrough on a Tuesday night for after hearing some good things about Jemma Freeman and her band. The night was put on by Art Mouse Promotions who focus on underrepresented and marginalised artists. Support came in the shape of Duck. Sheffield band who have just welcomed a new member in …

Randy Randall and Dean Spunt have always come across as a couple art house punks with a hell of a lot of conviction.
