With tales of artistic jealousy, petty theft, late night psychedelic excursions, burgeoning romance, and a betrayal, Kebab Disco is the debut LP from SF Bay Area trio Neutrals. It follows the release of two well-received promotional cassette demos and is out via the Emotional Response label on the 7th June.

The group channels a wide range of 70s and 80s punk, post-punk, and C86 influences – we’re talking some serious indie guitar jangle – check out I Can Do That and Technical College from the record below.

Order via Bandcamp here.

We’ve oft mentioned our love for some of the bands coming out of Ireland at the moment – Fontaines D.C., Murder Capital and the wonderful Silverbacks.

It is the latter who have released a new single, the propulsive, chugging Pink Tide, is another crackerjack of a tune brimming over with sardonic humour and sinewy twin guitars. It tells the tale of a slow unravelling of fashionable and futile revolutions in a land drowning in pomp and circumstance.

According to Silverbacks’ Daniel O’Kell  the origins of the track came from “another demo, poorly named ‘Mark E. Smith Eats His Purple Crayon’. In the end we realised that the riff deserved better, and we started writing what eventually became Pink Tide.

Marvellous. Listen here.

 

Dumb – Beef Hits

Canadian foursome Dumb deliver catchy post-punk songs in two-minute blasts of wiry riffs and full of indignant social critiques. They have shared their new single Beef Hits from their upcoming album Club Nites – out on the 7th June via Mint Records (order here).

Coming in at just over two minutes, there is a snarl and boisterousness that is happily reminiscent of the likes of Bodgea and Parquet Courts.

Have a listen.

 

Green & Blue will be released by up and coming Irish band The Murder Capital as a limited 12″ single on June 14th via Human Season Records.

We’ve already shared their brilliant Feeling Fades single, and this is another wonderfully foreboding record – all sinewy, coiled tenseness that barely lets up its stranglehold over six minutes of taut guitar rumble and brooding vocals.

It’s great stuff! Watch the menacing video below and pre-order the single here.

 

BEAK> are back with some brand new music in the form of Life Goes On – the first track to be lifted from a forthcoming EP.

The track is inspired directly from a recent trip to Mexico City for a festival when the band awoke to the sound of a distorted young girls’ voice bellowing across the city. Further investigation revealed the source as a recording used by scrap-collecting carts urging people to bring out old beds and washing machines. Returning to the UK filled with inspiration, the resultant track features the young girl’s voice in the intro before Life Goes On.

The song comes on like the strange hybrid lovechild of Santana and Sonic Youth.

Have a listen.

Experimental art-rock group Deliluh have shared a new single taken from their forthcoming new mini LP (out on 3rd May) called Oath of Intent.

Twisting drone, stoner rock and post-punk into a fierce sonic identity, Rabbit is a visceral and gritty warning about the corruption that is present everywhere.

Stream it below. Pre-order the album from Bandcamp here.

Had to post this – a special from yesterday’s Record Store Day and featuring the marvellous Meatraffle and Madonnatron sharing the lead on two, what I presume are Italian Rebel Songs given the song titles and the title of the release… no flies on us folks!

Anyway, just listen to both below. Order the 7″ vinyl or digital download from Bandcamp here.

 

 

 

 

Leeds-based post-punk outfit Drahla have shared a new single from their upcoming Useless Coordinates LP due out 3rd May on Captured Tracks.

Pyramid Estate is another wonderfully disorientating track, clocking in at less than two minutes, thriving on hectic collisions and a sense of hazy, fragmented confusion (particularly some wonderfully skronky saxophone that could have come from a classic Gong album) to create something wholly contemporary and mesmerising.

Watch the video / stream it below. Buy a limited edition Pyramid cassette from Bandcamp here.

 

 

Introducing >>> Deliluh

Emerging experimental art-rock group Deliluh have announced a brand-new mini LP, Oath of Intent, for release on the 3rd May via Tin Angel (UK/EU) and Telephone Explosion (CA/US).

The band have shared the first cut from the record – Freeloader Feast is a gritty, urgent, visceral explosion of a tune.

The accompanying video was shot on 16 mm film in a vacant room of the band’s apartment with friends and neighbours discussing their everyday lives and personal struggles. The negatives were later distressed by members of the band (and nearly destroyed) through various combined methods; boiling, burning, scratching, painting, bleaching and other means of chemical tampering (detergent, window cleaner, ammonia, etc). The results portray the vulnerability of people under the pressures of modernity that escalate out of their control.

Watch it here.
