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 …

BRIGHTON’S DITZ, who, on more than one occasion this year we’ve found the overwhelming urge to catapult into the perspiring throng to, only to find our living rooms sadly lacking in the requisite, adoring crowd, have this very morn shared a vid for a new track, “The Warden”, which, like last month’s roarer “Ded Würst”, …

SUB POP has made another fine addition to its roster with Sweeping Promises, who come extruding outta the campus town of Lawrence, Kansas with the post-punkery of “Pain Without A Touch” and a comprehensive British and European tour ready to roll. Listen to one and find out more about the other, below. Sweeping Promises is …

From the ever giving Bongo Joe portal, key communicator from the Geneva underground scene and beyond, comes news of Tout Bleu’s second album ‘Otium’ due for release on 10th December.

NO LESSER a cultural vulture (and someone you’d love to go on an Edinburgh pub crawl with) Ian Rankin says of Thomas Leer and Robert Rental’s cult ’79 album The Bridge that “it spans the gulf between punk and electro. It’s as good as the best of ‘79 and still potent, still the future.” Joining …

WITH their collaborative long player just a week away now, Bristol dub-punk collective The Pop Group and bass overlord Dennis Bovell MBE have dropped one final taster of Y In Dub, the rerub of The Pop Group’s era-defining 1979 debut Y. Drill down bone deep below with the retake on “3:38”, the flip of The …

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 …
