HEADS. – Push

Is Push, the third album from HEADS. their best work to date? We really think so, find out why this is such a powerful and venting collection of songs.

Shuck – Petrichor and Rainbows

From the destructive minds of Al Wilson and Jon Perry along with Andi Jackson for the ride, Shuck, could well be the band to sit nicely in the middle of that Venn-diagram of heavy, melody and aggression.

Sugar Horse – GakEater

It’s comforting that every Sugar Horse track seems like it could soundtrack the end of the world. If that isn’t a statement to make you want to listen, I don’t know what is.

Hawk Eyes – Advice

Advice by Hawk Eyes is a dark, brooding body of work. A concept piece offering guidance, corrupted narrators and bizarre tales of defiance, acceptance and grim determination.

Wizard Rifle – S/T

There’s a kind of unholy majesty about the songs on offer here – each of these five tracks feels expansive, monstrously heavy and crams so many ideas and twists within its layers.

Horseflies – Lucidity

Portsmouth’s Horseflies are made up from current and ex-members Deluxe Flamingos and Attack! Vipers! and have been kicking around since 2016, treating us to their noisy, discordant racket.

False Bliss – Ritual Terrains

What strikes you at first about Ritual Terrains is the fluidity of the music on offer – it seamlessly flows together as one orchestrated piece of work as tracks meld and reshape together as a cohesive body of sound.

USA/Mexico – Matamoros

The press release for USA/Mexico’s second album, Matamoros, features the words “once you’re comfortably settled in…” which I have to say is an odd turn of phrase, considering this is a turbulent and disturbing slab of vomit-inducing horror.
