CAROLINE

Nine Inch Nails new full-length Bad Witch completes the trilogy that began with 2016’s Not The Actual Events and 2017’s Add Violence. 

We kick things off in spectacular style, with 'Shit Mirror' echoing the early days of NIN, all perilous ambient distortions and thumping machinated drums, while retaining the momentous drive of their later records. 'Ahead Of Ourselves' features Reznor's vox twisted out of all proportion, with a wizened percussive detritus trailing behind before snapping into a cutthroat about-turn into the trademark fuzzed-out static redux we've come to expect from them 

'Play The Goddamned Part' on the other hand is much more reminiscent of the scattered but cohesive ambience of their greatest full-scope cinematic epic, 'The Fragile, scattered insectile stutters and electronic static underpins the oft-uncomfortable dissonance of a chorus of horns and jazzed-out abstractions.  

Flipping over, we get a continuation of the horn-filled dissonance, but pulled along by a frenetic resonant saw-wave, lending an acidic undertone and momentous drive to proceedings before breaking down into a bleak and uncompromising closing duo of the full-spectrum gothic gloom of 'I'm Not From This World' and the twinkling syncopated shuffle of the chillingly deep 'Over And Out'.

STAFF COMMENTS

Barry says: Encompassing all aspects of the lengthy and hugely succesful career of Reznor et. al., with a few extras thrown in for good measure (drunken horn section anyone?). All pulled together with the uncompromising sonic headspace and chillingly gothic industrial ambience they've become so well known for. Killer.

Death From Above

Outrage! Is Now

Death From Above certainly kept moving on their third full-length album, Outrage! Is Now produced by Eric Valentine (Queens of the Stone Age) While gleefully maintaining the car-wreck intensity of their punkified disco rock, the hooks got hookier, the weirdness got weirder, and the wildness got, well, wilder. The mustached merchants of death dance discord—Sebastien Grainger (vocals, drums) and Jesse F. Keeler (bass, keys, synths)—made a collective decision to embrace their own penchant for perpetual motion and cooked up the perfect soundtrack to Armageddon’s dancefloor.

"THE NEW, PIANO-SAMPLE-DRIVEN TRACK IS A TYPICAL, SERRATED PIECE OF DEATH FROM ABOVE-BRANDED DANCE-ROCK, WITH A FIERCE NOISE BREAKDOWN TOWARD THE END” SPIN.

“THERE’S NOTHING QUITE LIKE A DEATH FROM ABOVE SONG…” THE PRELUDEPRESS.

    Augustines

    This Is Your Life

      "This is Your Life", the new album from anthemic rock trio, Augustines, is an urgent, resonant wakeup call, taking stock of where we are now and what the future holds... an open road ahead.

      Hailing from Perth, Australia, POND formed in 2008 as an all-inclusive, ego-free collective spawned from numerous other interlocked bands and projects: Mink Mussel Creek, Allbrook/Avery, and Tame Impala.

      “Pond…are very good at nailing tracks with best-of-both worlds approach, fusing those indulgent chunks of far-outness with fundamentally solid rock’n’roll tunes.” – Pitchfork.

      Slow Club

      Complete Surrender

        Since forming in Sheffield in 2006, Slow Club have released two EPs and two albums, each showcasing different and distinct facets of their musical DNA. While most bands seem happy to rest on their laurels, afraid to push their sound forward, multi-instrumentalists Rebecca Taylor and Charles Watson, for it is they, get a bit bored of recreating the same things over and over.

        So while their debut album, 2009's Yeah So, was a beautifully ramshackle collection of country and folk-tinged strumalongs, 2011's more experimental Paradise pushed and pulled the band into myriad new musical directions. But nothing can quite prepare you for the quantum leap that takes place on their beautifully epic forthcoming third album, Complete Surrender.

        Recorded with producer Colin Elliot, who's previously helped create an equally widescreen sound on albums by Richard Hawley, Complete Surrender touches on everything from Motown and the output of Memphis' Stax Records to the immaculately produced pop of the 1970s, via Frankie Valli and David Bowie.
