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.

 

METZ Are Back

Brutal noise rockers METZ are back with a new record, Strange Peace, that sees them turning in a much more nuanced, interesting set of songs, one that feels particularly indebted to Sonic Youth, Preoccupations, Fugazi and the more angular edges of the alt rock pantheon.

It’s a record that is still immersed in the kind of biting social commentary they’ve often dealt in, but this time it’s more audible than ever: provocative and uncompromising but, dare we say it, a lot of fun too.

Check out the infectiously powerful first single Cellophane.  The album arrives on the 22nd September via Sub Pop.

The consistently marvellous METZ return with a new 7″ single, Eraser backed with Pure Auto.

Distortion. Check.

Feedback. Check.

Full on riffing. Check.

Pummelling percussion. Check.

Shredding vocals. Check.

Do yourself a favour and turn this one up to eleven….

Metz – Spit You Out

METZ’s second album II is out via Sub Pop on the 4th May.

The latest track to get an airing from it is the titanic Spit You Out. Brutal and beautiful, seismic and irresistible, and at it’s snarling core is an unstoppable barbed wire hook…

Stream it below. Pre-order the album here.

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.

.

Lipstick Lumberjack – Desert Balloons
Folk-pop in the vein of Rilo Kiley.

.

Mason Brothers – Falling Together
Spacey, contemporary Americana.

.

Royal Forest – Everyone Who Knows You
Weaves warped psych-pop and surreal Americana into something utterly memorable.

.

Tales Of Murder And Dust – Tremblin’
Hazy and kaliedoscopic mixing drone, shoegaze and eastern influences into a swirling maelstrom of noise rock.

.

Jack Wilson – Masterplan
Masterpiece of restrained emotion where spare, but powerful vocals weave between gentle strings and harmonies. A real treat of authentic folk storytelling.

.

Algernon Doll – Anti-Them
Fuzzy guitars, layered vocals and no little distortion.

.

Speedy Ortiz – No Below
New single from garage noiseniks.

.

Black Joe Lewis – Skulldiggin
Grips from the off with a blistering, distorted blues riff of righteous fury and a gruff vocal of just the right amount of hellfire and brimstone zeal to match.

.

Potty Mouth – The Spins
Energetic, scrappy indie rock.

.

This Frontier Needs Heroes – George Clooney
Simply gorgeous piece of contemporary Americana.

.

Argy Rakis – Let It Go
Rasping, deep vocal that sits comfortably atop a percussive chug of travelling troubadour inspiration.

.

Over Nights – Broken Cabins
Sweetly melodic slice of banjo led, backporch Americana.

.

Fist City – Boring Kids
Punk. Brash. Snotty. Play loud.

.

The Blood Arm – Bubblegum
Art-rock cool with a wonderfully weary, almost resigned feel to the glam undercurrent – imagine Roxy Music on downers…

.

Whale Belly – Bubbles In My Blood
Bears the imprint of traditional folk, but boasts a big band sound, and the violin adds a classical element that contrasts sweetly with the naggingly insistent high-pitched guitar riffs.

.

The Dive Poets – Idaho
Highway-bound rhythm and spirited viola creates a gently mournful single of perfectly judged alt-Country.

.

Kill The Captains – Disco Nazi
Guitars fizz and spit, bass lines hum, and drums are beaten and battered in six minute epic.

.

Georgia’s Horse – Thistlebomb
Sparse and spooky country noir – hypnotic and filled with a plaintive melancholy.

.

Jacuzzi Boys – Domino Moon
Psych-garage pop of the very best kind.

.

Last American Buffalo – Move Me
Slow, yearning country blues.

.

Golden Animals – The Steady Roller
Hazy, windswept psychedelia.

.

Download Metz – Can’t Understand mp3 (from Adult Swim Singles Series)
Pulverising new track from punk/hardcore hybrids.

Download Rose Windows – Native Dreams mp3 (from The Sun Dogs)
Six minute exotic distortion weaving Sabbath style sludge with the traditional sounds of the Middle East and Eastern Europe.

And to finish off we have the very welcome return of garage rockers The Obits and their new single Taste The Diff as well as the ragged guitars and snarling girl vocals of Summer Cannibals new track Hey / I Was Saved. We have catchy, energetic garage pop from Holland in the shape of Waiting For Something New by Mozes And The Firstborn, and lastly we have the lush acoustics and warm reverb of neo-folkies The Petticoat Tearoom’s track Love Isn’t Gone.

Don’t forget to check all the other Best of the Month mixes in the sidebar too.

Wednesday Means Six Of The Best!

Time for a round up of six more excellent bands and their tunes that have been spinning regularly on the MM virtual turntable.

First out of the blocks are Manchester’s Temple Songs, a 4 piece outfit smashing out brilliantly crafted psychedelic pop tunes – the kind of tracks that you might stumble across on a carefully selected LA Nuggets compilation and wonder how it is of the now. Blending sounds of The Beatles and The Stooges with the likes of Pavement and Deerhunter; their single Passed Caring, backed with Dinosaur Alley is due to be released digitally and on 7″ Vinyl on the 4th July.

.

Bailout is the new EP from MM faves Little Legend, and paints a picture of the lowly dirtbag with all the embedded grit and garage-rock small town America has to offer. The title track is even based on a time frontman Brandy Tudor was bailed out of jail in Laramie, WY by a girlfriend, though he might have embellished it a little bit…

.

We previously posted about Detroit Rebellion’s debut EP Fork In The Road, the follow up is more uncompromising, gritty dirt-blues of the very best kind. Some of the Time (Some Other Time) comes from The Detroit Rebellion of ’67 EP and is another slice of classic old-school riffing, distortion and tribal percussion.

.

Fourth up is Daughn Gibson and a track from his new album Me Moan, which is already picking up plenty of accolades and good press. Our personal favourite from the record (so far) will also be the first proper single from it – Kissin On The Blacktop, which is a slice of freak’s rockabilly underpinned by Gibson’s ominously drawled baritone. Marvellous stuff.

.

Diarrhea Planet might, quite literally, have a shit name, but fortunately the music is far from fecal. Kids is the latest track to get an airing from their imminent second long-player, I’m Rich Beyond Your Wildest Dreams. It is their most considered and melodic offering yet.

.

Lastly, Toronto’s punk/hardcore hybrid METZ are the latest contributors to the free Adult Swim Singles Series with the pulverising Can’t Understand.
