On Life Cinema, USA Nails continue to hack, carve and flesh out this ghastly totem of their acerbic and unique sound.
This Portstewart trio have gone from big riff to even bigger riff; The Mid Brae Inn, their second album was No.5 in Keep It Fast’s top albums of 2015 (and rightly so, it’s an absolute stonker!). What next? Having toured incessantly through 2015, Axis Of have decided to release Companions, their first live album, made up of a selection of choice (and in some places raw and rough) cuts from The Mid Brae Inn tour.
If you’ve been familiar with Girl Band’s work – any similarities to their France 98 EP of 2013 have been taken outside and fed through a wood chipper. Holding Hands With Jamie takes things a step too far and keeps going, laughing maniacally, trailing a huge splatter of gasoline behind it, whilst repeatedly trying to get a spark from a lighter.
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.
When Axis Of first burst on to the scene, they threw so many curve balls it was difficult to know exactly what or where their sound was going. Their debut album; the pulverising bruise that is Finding St. Kilda sounds like Florida dirt-merchants Torche exchanging the boom string for three chords and more amp-jumping.
