Entropy – Liminal

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.

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.

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.

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.

Night Owls – Informaldehyde

Night Owls are comprised of drummer and vocalist Will Pollard and guitarist Liam Waddell. There particular brand of poison? Well, I’m honestly not sure. If you were to ask them what they sounded like, they’d probably shrug and start chucking things at you until you eventually walked away, looking a bit lost and sheepish.

DTHPDL – The Future

‘Gin and Swearing’ is listed as the genre for DTHPDL’s new EP, The Future. We’re off to a strong start and I haven’t even pressed play yet. DTHPDL (pronounced ‘Deathpodal’) is four-piece band from Edinburgh, started by frontman Alistair J Chivers, with the help from D. MacDonald, Humdrum Jetset and Ross Taylor (on this recording).

Brawlers – Romantic Errors Of Our Youth

An autobiographical streak runs through Brawlers’ sound – from the brisk story-telling of Annabel to the girl-chasing bounce of Two Minutes and the drunken bar room chant of the album’s title track, hearts are very much being held up to your face, with the bloody viscera dripping all down your front.

Yearbook – Old bones

Two chords into this EP I went ‘oh yeh pop-punk/emo like that other song of theirs I could be anyone’ then the third chord came and shat on that hypothesis. It was discordant but not that heavy, what it really reminded me of was Inme, remember them?
