Visuals – Lekker (2017)

One might be forgiven for hearing South Korea's Visuals and expecting a pop-up carnival. In their wild debut Lekker, the band bring together a bounty of lavish staccato-style guitar effects and samples, the sort that give bands like Battles and Adebisi Shank their oddball and fantastical flavors.

LITE – Cubic (2016)

In their 14 years of existence LITE have always been good at doing something new on each release; using different instruments, adding a sprinkle of other genres one wouldn’t normally associate with them and generally keeping things fresh. Yet they always seems to maintain a mix of clean guitar twiddle and filthy funk rhythms that is theirs alone.
