Infinity Broke are a band that does not go gently into the night: their new album ‘Your Dream My Jail’ is an excoriating, driven, thunderous slice of post-punk cake that is angular, studded and visceral. Guitars wail and caterwaul, drums crash like waves on an exposed coast and singer Jamie Hutchings (formerly of nineties indie …

FROM introductory single “I Want My Minutes Back”, the elusively enigmatic Snapped Ankles have spliced musically immediate tracks with impossibly danceworthy drumbeats and equally provocative synth work alongside sprawling, often Krautrock-eking, delightful structures of wild, spontaneous abandon. Their third album, Forest Of Your Problems, expands their ever-growing sonic boundaries into abundantly fertile territory. As with …

French trio Versari produce compelling, dark and gothic sonic landscapes that are elegant and cool. We reviewed their single ‘Plus de Tristesse’ last year from the album ‘Sous le peaux’, calling it gloriously imperious and statuesque and we are very honoured to premiere their new EP Brûle, which consists of an edited version of the …

ROARING back into spiky guitar contention from their adopted North London fastness with a lithe new tune that has all the stop-start passion of Elastica or Menswe@r, FEET have announced a new EP, Walking Machine, due for release on August 6th on their new home, Nice Swan Records; and it comes fanfared with a first …

There is an ominous and deliciously malevolent atmosphere in the single ‘Television’ by Twin Diver – an edgy brutality that has the raw energy of Joy Division with a crisp bubbling instrumentation highlighted by the jangling guitars and brooding rhythm section. The vocals have a disembodied chilling timbre, adding to the ethereal tone and the …

Marking a collaboration between two iconic British artists, experimental group Elegiac has released “Vous Et Ici” as a single leading up to the release of their self-titled debut on Friday, March 26th. The duo is composed of post-punk bassist/vocalist Edvard Graham Lewis (Wire, He Said) and saxophonist/vocalist Ted Milton (Blurt), and their collaboration creates envelope-pushing …

It’s not very often that music videos are interesting. I’ve never truly participated in them for that exact reason and I haven’t rewatched more than a handful of them since I had a VHS of clips of nü-metal videos interrupted by Carson Daly.  The video for Nuha Ruby Ra’s new single “Run Run” changes that. …
