She Makes War (aka Bristol based artist and multi-instrumentalist Laura Kidd) has shared her new single Undone, the first installment of the double A side Undone / London Bites, taken from the forthcoming album Brace For Impact, which is out 5th October.

Written in a daze the day after her grandmother Constance died last May, Undone’s monster guitars deliver palpable rage at the bad things that happen to good people, the song acting as an openhearted rallying cry against the British stiff upper lip brigade. “We need to give ourselves a break”, she says. “Giving ourselves time to feel devastated doesn’t make us weak.

Mad Mackerel Recommends… SAVAK

Noisy Brooklyn rock veterans SAVAK (members of Obits, Holy Fuck and The Cops) have announced details of their new album Beg Your Pardon.

It is their third long-player release, and follows a compelling progression from their past offerings (2016’s Best Of Luck In Future Endeavors and 2017’s Cut-Ups). The new album features everything from noisy careeners and ’80s hardcore nods to slightly glammy stompers and straight-up, New Zealand-inspired, guitar-pop songs.

Album opener, Dead Dick is a bristling bayonet, lyrically inspired by the #metoo movement, lancing scumbag patriarchs while humorously dropping a Van Halen reference.

It is seriously good stuff – have a listen and check out the video for We Lead Them To Our Doors at the same time. Order the album here.

 

 

New Vulgarians single

We’ve featured Hull’s Vulgarians a few times on MM, ever since seeing them support TRAAMS in Oxford.

A compelling mix of post-punk and psych-rock, the band’s excellent new single Dead People Are Easier To Love is their first new music since last year’s Almost Instinct, Almost True EP, and makes use of 80s synthesisers to add a new level of sonic urgency to their sound

Have a listen.

Thoroughly enjoying these tracks from Canada’s Lonely Parade.

Olive Green is the fourth song to be shared from upcoming long player The Pits and is a fabulous mix of wiry post-punk and disaffected Sonic Youth style dissonance. The propulsive, cascading guitar line is underpinned by an off-kilter rhythmic emphasis, performing an unusual call and response with the bass line, before giving way to a driving wordless chorus.

Listen below together with the equally good buzzsaw punk of I’m So Tired. The album is out on the 14th September via Buzz Records (pre-order here).
