Narco States are one of those bands who, on the surface, sound like many others who you could safely file under ‘garage’. There are the MC5/ Stooges wails and lo-fi drums, and thrumming bass. There is the sort of wailing organ swirling in and out of the mix which is redolent of any number of …

Jonas Munk is no slave to one musical master. He can jump from electronic music, to krautrock, to ambient drone, and to psych rock without blinking an eye. Sometimes all those jumps can happen in the course of a day. An afternoon, even. Keeping things new and fresh is a vital part to how Munk …

London five piece Early Ghost are back with a new single, Devils Got Me Now, which is out on March 23rd on both vinyl and digital download. Despite only having formed for a little over two years, they’ve already supported a who’s list of bands, including Neutral Milk Hotel, Beirut, First Aid Kit, Jacco Gardner …

Transfixiation is the best album A Place To Bury Strangers has made. That’s not to say anything that came before it wasn’t worthy of hurting our ears. But this time around Oliver Ackermann has given the already harsh, dark sound he creates something it really needed: a groove. It’s not all about the numbing squall of …

Wall/Eyed are a four-piece from Paris, who formed in late 2013. They describe their music as taking inspiration from ‘post-psychedelicism and Bauhaus’, which is an intriguing combination which would suggest to me that it might be in the direction of Shoegaze. Indeed, while the band’s music does consist of elements that are both introvert and …

The thing that strikes me about the opening to this album is how it manages to sound both hot and cold and the same time. There is an icey tingle infused by the warmth of the Californian sun as the West Coast melody kicks in. Thereafter, this opening track (the beginning of ‘Side X’), ‘And …

Language of Shapes inhabit a musical world all their own. Not that they don’t allow certain musical influences to seep into that world and show themselves now and then, but for the most part LoS score their wonderful little universe all their own. Their self-titled debut from 2012 showed a band brimming and bursting with …

They’ve just completed their biggest headline tour to date, with sell out shows throughout the UK, and going down a storm in the good ole US of A. If you were lucky enough to have caught one of the gigs, you’ll be abruptly aware of how pleasurably raucous The Wytches live set can be. Dirty …

I have to admit that I’m not a big fan of split LPs, I know that they are a great thing for many bands since it gets their music out there for pretty much half the cost, and introduces them to a wider audience; but as a buyer of records I still like the idea …
