Australia’s DZ Deathrays have unveiled a surreal video for new single Total Meltdown.

In typical DZ style, the ridiculous video sees the duo turned into animated characters, fresh after a night out on the town, a chaotic series of events that perfectly encapsulates the raucous, thrash-party sound of the single.

Watch it below.

 

Chapter II is probably our favourite track from Naomi Punk’s latest album Yellow. A song that just oozes pulsating, tribal chaos.

The band have shared an appropriately intense and moody video for it. Watch it below and order the album via Bandcamp here.

 

The Wasp is the latest buzzing track from Brooklyn’s no-wave, noise-punk supergroup Ice Balloons from their upcoming LP Fiesta, out August 11th on Volar Records.

As much a cult as a band, helmed by a giant golden fly, Ice Balloons celebrates chaos as fizzles and lasers pop from every broken corner of their tumbled offerings. The Wasp is no exception – the track, like most of the record, was inspired by insects after a hallucination caused by altitude sickness during a trip to Colorado.

Another From METZ

Here’s another track from METZ’s forthcoming new record Strange Peace.

This time around it’s the angular, ear-piercing Drained Lake: one of the boldest and most daring METZ tracks to date. Imagine the clatter of early Sonic Youth brought up to terrifying speed or Preoccupations on a hardcore 7”s binge and you wouldn’t be a million miles from the pace…

Listen.

 

Fresh after taking a year off, Australian duo DZ Deathrays have returned with a new single.

Shred For Summer sees them mark their return in typically ferocious style, crafting one of their most visceral yet catchy songs to date.

Listen below. The single is out today via Alcopop!

 

Brooklyn band Monograms is the project of Ian Jacobs, who has been releasing music under the moniker for the past couple of years. What started out as a solo bedroom project has since grown into a four-piece live band, and they now have two upcoming releases: a split 7″ with Pink Mexico, due out tomorrow, and a new EP, Silencer, due out April 21st.

Both feature the fuzzed-out guitars, psych-tinged vocals, and catchy hooks of new single OK Promises, which you can stream below.

Our third festive offering comes from hardcore rocking stalwarts Melvins and their version of Carol Of The Bells, which is part of Amazon’s Indie for the Holidays playlist, released at the end of last month on Amazon Music.

The band simply say, “the song has scared us since we were children, that’s why we wanted to do it.

Good enough for us!

 

Pissed Jeans

We will always have a soft spot for Philadelphia’s wonderfully named Pissed Jeans ever since their brilliant Boring Girls was adopted as an anthem by our gentle, sweet middle sprat a few years back.

She is sixteen next week and will be just as delighted as me to learn they will release their new album Why Love Now? via Sub Pop on 24th February. It is produced by no wave legend Lydia Lunch, along with Arthur Rizk, and is a gutter-scraped amalgamation of sludge, punk, noise, and bracing wit.

The first taste comes with the snarling, grinding rave-up of The Bar Is Low, written about “how every guy seems to be revealing themselves as a shithead“.

Welcome back boys! Check it out below.
