Two-piece loop fiasco Space Blood is as much a visual as an aural experience. Anyone who has seen the band will know that they have no inhibitions when it comes to their act. Covert plays in underpants. Edgin wears a crop top to garner some twisted sex appeal from his hairy gut.
Alright, this came out last month but I didn't want to let it go under the radar. Riding Pânico's latest endeavour is pleasantly contemplative, but also packs a secret punch to it, draping you in dreamy, curious atmospheres only to slowly hit you with a gut-felt heaviness indicative of their sludge/stoner roots...
Boston's Bat House bring elements from across the musical landscape and feed them through the lo-fi grinder in their explosive and versatile self-titled debut. Bat House is an epic journey, wandering across surf rock, folk, shoegaze and intense polyrhythmic mathcore madness.
As post rock steadily descends into the maelstrom of predictable minor chord progressions and prosaic crescendos, it's always refreshing to see a shiner in the rough. A glimmer of hope for an unfortunately diluted genre.
Much to my surprise my favorite instrumental Torino-based mathrock act Marmore, brings monolithic guitars that make the Piemonte shake! “And So It Was You From Afar!” begins the epic 4 song album. Bass lines that glacial melts are thunderous calamities.
