Nots – Floating Hand

Posted: April 18, 2019 in Alternative, Music, Punk, Rock

Noisy Memphis threesome Nots have unveiled a new single Floating Hand, which comes from upcoming album 3.

Their latest conceptualizes the idea of being a constant actor, a constant persona in order to adapt and losing reality in the performance.

Listen below – the album is out on the 10th May.



Back at the beginning of last year we posted Italian glam-punk stompers Bee Bee Sea’s brilliant This Dog Is The King Of Losers.

Now they’re back with a new single Be Bop Palooza, which is another insanely catchy riffola of a tune –  a powerful, motorik rhythm that opens to a sticky chorus enriched with falsetto singing, while singer Wilson Wilson tells about his struggles of living a small-town lifestyle that is often boring and repetitive

Apparently, everything, from the artwork to the upcoming video, is inspired by Bebop, a humanoid mutant warthog featured as one of the villains of the animated series Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Listen below. Order the single here. This would have been guaranteed the no. 1 spot in 1974!


In stark contrast to our earlier post featuring the sweet strum of The Lumineers we now have Pile’s new single – the excellently named The Soft Hands Of Stephen Miller. A song about the threat posed by the President’s far-right advisor.

It is noisy and brutal and ferocious and we are loving all two minutes of it – for anyone who has a tune by Big Black, Fugazi or Shellac in their iTunes this is for you – sparse, abrasive and uncompromising.

It comes from upcoming long player Green and Gray, which is out on the 3rd May via Exploding in Sound.


New Single From LIFE

Posted: March 29, 2019 in Alternative, Indie, Music, Punk, Rock

Discovering LIFE at Truck Festival back in 2017 was one of our festival highlights, so much so we went straight out and bought a vinyl copy of their excellent debut long player Popular Music.

A follow-up is (thankfully) due for release this year and they’re sharing the biting first single, Moral Fibre, which is out today via Afghan Moon / PIAS, and is available for your listening pleasure below.

Typically anthemic (who can resist a song that starts with a yelled “Pissants“?), typically frenetic (it clocks in at 97 seconds) and typically brilliant. Our song of the day for sure.


See them live:

03 May / Glasgow / Broadcast
04 May / Liverpool / Liverpool Sound City
05 May / Leicester / Handmade Festival
10 May / Brighton / The Great Escape Festival
16 May / Wrexham / FOCUS Wales
11 Jul / Upcote Farm / 2000 Trees



New From Ausmuteants

Posted: March 19, 2019 in Alternative, Indie, Punk, Rock

Ausmuteants will return with a new album The World In Handcuffs via Anti Fade Records on the 26th April.

Typically weird, the record features the same ten songs on each side, just in a different order and with the A Side including skits by guitarist Shaun Connor.

The record is a concept album of sorts, one that explores a piss-take look on life from the perspective of a police officer. However, beneath all the silliness, there are some pretty sharp and provocative observations on the systematic abuse of power and on the ugly, corrupt side of law enforcement.

Check out the 97 seconds of Forever Cops, which is equal parts pulverising, no holds barred hardcore and still completely bonkers.

Daft punk indeed… (sorry). Stream it below. Order the album here.

Danish band PowerSolo are apparently Donkey-Punk legends!

We don’t even know what that means, but we like the sound of it and happily enough their brand new 7″ release Transfixing Motherfucker is a raw blast of primordial proto-punk that fair blew the cobwebs out of our ears and our speakers. We have lead track Backstab for your listening pleasure below.

They’ll be in the US for SXSW next month if you’re lucky enough to be going. Or buy from Bandcamp here.
