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 – 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. – S/T

It’s no surprise to learn that HEADS. will be going on tour with METZ in June and any other bands who like writing their name in capitals only. HEADS. are 1 Australian and 2 Germans making stripped-to-the-bare-bones noise rock that in places, gives a nod to that 90s grunge sound, alongside a gnawing, low-end scrape of disgruntled darkness.
