Liminal by Entropy could well be the sleeper hit of the year. It’s a gold mine of huge, expansive, emotive post-hardcore with killer metallic riffs and soaring vocals.
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.
The Lumes – Envy
Whether the guitar on third track (Discharge) on this new EP from Rotterdam’s The Lumes is being played remains to be seen. The long stretching, stream of feedback that emanates seems to indicate that it’s been hurled into a speaker and left to pump out a noxious, squealing wail until the switch is finally flipped. Nice.
PABST / Autisti – Split 7″
Surely one of the best kept secrets in the underground music scene is CrazySane Records, right? This little Berlin-based label, run by Chris Breuer of ear-bothers HEADS. has been quietly releasing some great records, split 7″ and EPs over the last few months and slowly building up a name for themselves.
PABST – Skinwalker
From the label that brought you noise-grunge bastards HEADS. and the savage guitar/drum party jams of Closet Disco Queen, emerges more riotous, jet-fuelled sounds to get your ears around. PABST are three lads from Germany making the kind of teeth-shaking racket you would expect.
HEADS. DOING. A. UK. TOUR.
Purveyors of uncomfortable, scraping noise-rock that could melt through walls; Germany-meets-Australia’s HEADS. are to return to the UK later on this month for a few shows, which is nice. Catch them at these venues creeping you out with their crunchy, face-clawing riffs.
HEADS. / Closet Disco Queen – Split 7″
Excellent news everyone, HEADS. have recorded some new music and they’ve brought a couple of friends along for the ride. Crazysane Records is the new project by HEADS. bassist Chris Breuer and this split with Closet Disco Queen, is the first release.
