The Cavemen: S/T

Sure, The Cavemen’s debut isn’t sophisticated or complex. But it is one of those wonderful loose-nut punk rock albums that reminds you that life is short, and you better get busy making your own filthy fun.

End of the Alphabet Records: Updates and Favourites

As promised, here’s my round-up of two brand new releases from End of the Alphabet Records. Plus a couple of my favourite releases from the label’s formidable roster of noise-makers.

SXNOISES

Cheers, Plans, and a Hearty Fuck You to 2015.

The world is seemingly going to hell in a handbasket. So I thought I’d better get in nice and early to make sure I passed on my wholehearted thanks for visiting Six Noises this year.

Bridge Burner: Mantras of Self Loathing

Mantras of Self Loathing might only provide around 12 minutes of grinding guitars, frenzied percussion, and vicious vocals. But that’s more than enough hostile noise to mark the EP as a formidable opening salvo from Bridge Burner.

Adoran: Children of Mars

Children of Mars might be bare-boned, but it uses every ounce of its physicality to kick down those famed doors of consciousness.

Pekak

Pekak! Indonesian Noise 1995​–2015: 20 Years of Experimental Music from Indonesia.

Pekak! Indonesian Noise 1995​–2015 is a goldmine of gloriously grotesque and idiosyncratic delights drawn from across Indonesia’s maverick musical history.

The Dobermen

The Dobermen, and Raw Panic.

The Dobermen and Raw Panic make amp-melting, outlaw and middle-finger-raised-sky-high punk rock. Dig in. Now.

Glass

Sunken Seas: Glass

For all the darkness engulfing Sunken Seas second album, Glass, it never overshadows or obscures the talent or beauty therein.
