Lizard Hips – Top 10 Albums of 2018

Some surprises, some shocks, some “that’s shit mate, why’s that there?” are all present, probably. Or not. Enjoy, my top 10 albums of 2018.

Dead Now – S/T

Have you been thinking “not enough riffs about this year.” May I introduce you to Dead Now and their absolute onslaught of churning, boiling noise?

Irk – Recipes From The Bible

Deliciously uncomfortable seems to be Irk’s mantra and they manage this over the course of the 9 track slab of warped, snarling wreckage that is Recipes From The Bible.

Catalan – Cornelius

Gracing the airwaves again is Catalan, the new-ish project by Axis Of bassist Ewen Friers. We spoke to Ewen  last July, where he gave us the low-down on his new venture, and featured them here with the jaunty pop-rock of Alive. 

Prayer Group – ICUP

Prayer Group are an excellently named noise bunch of lads from Richmond, Virginia. Why should you care? Read on to discover more.

Track by track: HEADS. – Collider

We love a bit of HEADS. at Keep It Fast, their angled, jagged, noisy concentrated sound is a raucous delight.  To celebrate, here’s a track by track breakdown of Collider, their second album.

PABST – Chlorine

You’ll be unfamiliar with Berlin-based power trio PABST – but never fear, you’ll want to cram the nuggets of spicy gold of their debut album, Chlorine, into your ears.

Hot Snakes – Jericho Sirens

Why Jericho Sirens is a bludgeoning, dangerous and deadly beast of a record and the 14 years have been well worth the wait.
