New Video: Hyena – Mental Home

There is something undeniably great about a new band playing their guitars really, really fast and really, really loud.

This is exactly what you get on Hyena’s debut single Mental Home, three minutes of pure, pissed-off aggression and adrenalin – it will see a release on the legendary Stiff Records label on 9th March.

Watch the new video for it below.

Metz – Acetate

Metz are following up their excellent self-titled debut on Sub Pop with the rather unimaginatively titled Metz II.

That’s where the predictability ends though, as proven with the first taste Acetate, a crushing mix of post-hardcore intensity and good old fashioned punk rock that will bring your speakers out in hives.

MM Shorts 666: Culture Abuse

Obviously, we needed the right kind of track for our six hundredth and sixty sixth post in our “Shorts” series, and Bay Area quintet Culture Abuse’s delivery of scuzzy post-punk at it’s most primal seemed nigh on perfect, especially with Nicotine, the lead track to the band’s upcoming Spray Paint The Dog 7″.

So if chaotic noise rock, deviant garage punk, and elements of hardcore are your thing and if abrasive dissonance, crushing riffs and infectious hooks tickle your fancy then we suggest you hit play below….and check out the b-side Perfect Light too.

Video Premiere: Hideous Sun Demon – Flex

Hailing from way Down Under, Perth to be precise, the excellently named punk band Hideous Sun Demon have just shared with us their video for latest single Flex, which is taken from their debut LP Sweat.

To call the video nightmarish would be an understatement…slime oozes, dribbles and is vomited, faces are eaten, blood and gore abounds and all in a colour scheme that would give Buddha a migraine. Thankfully the song stands up to all the stomach-churning visual imagery being a savage, scuzzy slab of punk rock that, well that would give Buddha a migraine.

We love it. You watch it.

MM Shorts 664: Nai Harvest

Check out the new single from Nai Harvest who have shared Sick On My Heart, a fervid and hazy slice of garage punk taken from duo’s forthcoming album Hairball which is set for release on 28th April via Topshelf Records.

It is an altogether more energetic and feedback-laden grunge sound then we’ve heard from them previously…

Tuesday Morning Video Round Up

Much like yesterday’s Monday morning round-up post, we’ve now selected just a few of the excellent videos that have arrived in our in-box over the past few days and weeks for your viewing (and listening) pleasure.

So without further ado start with the wonderful old time banjo of Willie Watson at Pickathon, and by way of Andy Shauf, Darren Hayman, The Asylums, Streets Of Laredo, The April Maze, Chastity Belt, and John Joseph Brill arrive at the of gothic, noir-folk of Robert Chaney.

Enjoy the ride.

Video: The Bohicas – To Die For

Building upon the interest that was provoked by last year’s tracks XXX and Swarm, two kraut-engined, lazer-guided garage rock missiles which introduced The Bohicas as a formidable new force of both brain and brawn, here is the video for their next single To Die For (out on March 2nd).

Watch it below, and check out the earlier tracks too.
