Making a name for yourself in modern hardcore is a difficult prospect, so that’s probably why Maryland’s Turnstile sound like an oldball mix of 311/Madball/Suicide Machines and bizarrely, Status Quo (more on that later) in order to carve their name into this overflowing musical landscape.
Yagow – S/T
Yagow are a vortex of sound with one goal in mind – absorbing and claiming everything within reach. This is best demonstrated on the mammoth 8 minute opener, Horsehead Nebula; a pulsating beast of hazy, cryptic guitar layers, see-sawing riffs and the kind of sprawling post-rock scuzz of journeying into the centre of a star that’s about to explode.
Disasterpeace – It Follows (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)
This album should come with a disclaimer. “Warning, do not, repeat, DO NOT listen to this if you are trying to drift off to sleep – may cause utter terror/crazy dreams.” Not that I’ve experienced such a thing, oh no. Well, maybe a bit.
Oyasumi, Adebisi Shank – 2006-2014
It’s with a heavy heart I write this, but Adebisi Shank are to split. It’s only been a month since they released This Is The Third Album of A Band Called Adebisi Shank, the strongest and most experimental album of their career and now they’ve decided to call it a day. This sucks, but their music will remain – with 3 albums and an EP as their lasting legacy.
