Post-punk Sydneysiders finish off their ‘Wait’ national album tour on a high. Johnny Hunter rolled into Hobart town last night and turned on a performance for the ages.  Following on from the eclectic supports, World Class Cinema (Launceston) and Flower Extract (Hobart) the boys from New South Wales took to the stage and blasted their …

Now here’s a band that don’t hold back. Brighton/Lewes electronic post punk duo Be Kind Cadaver (Daniel Hignell-Tully and Leroy Brown) grab at real issues and wring them out through their highly charged, shell shocked anti-pop songs. Their debut EP ‘Postpartum’, available from 21st July on the forward thinking Difficult Art And Music label, probes …

The Gutter is an industrial post-punk banger which spits venom from the very opening notes of its’ guitar intro, continuing at a frenetic pace throughout its’ electrifying two and a half minutes duration. Dust‘s most sophisticated song to date, The Gutter has shown another exciting side to the development of this young Newcastle band still …

Genoa-based label Brucia Records prides itself on being a home for ‘uncanny, unsettling or unusual’ music, and the forthcoming debut album by Grieving Sea certainly fits that description. The 7-track LP slots nicely into the output of a label that’s put out material spanning a whole host of disparate subgenres like black metal, doom and …

Dr Sure are a part of the Marthouse Records stable, which is owned by the band’s leader, Dougal …

We are very pleased to exclusively reveal the new single from Sydney band oWo, ‘Exit Plan’. This is a thundering insistent track with a fuzzy chain saw guitar attack. The snarling delivery and attack recedes to something more ethereal and dreamy half way through as a wayward intermission, before launching back into the scything assault. …

We’re just going to say it: the debut album from New York sextet Catcher is an absolute scorcher. Fans of Protomartyr, Preoccupations and the more muscular proponents of the current post-punk wave should take note: it’s out Friday February 18th. The Fat of a Broken Heart has been teased by several singles, but the lead …

It’s been more than 5 years since the Melbourne-based quintet EXEK released a proper studio album, but that wait is almost over. Next month, they release Advertise Here, a muscular 8-track effort that acts as the true follow-up to 2016’s Biased Advice – though there was a clutch of new material to be found on …

NEWLY signed to the ace Full Time Hobby, where they’ll find themselves grazing amongst the likes of Tunng, The Besnard Lakes and Dana Gavanski, Pale Blue Eyes are a young electro-modernist guitar trio from the South Devon riverside town of Totnes. Think a castle, farmers’ markets and one of the best record shops in the …
