Earlier this year Conneticut based Noiserock band Magik Markers released their latest album Surrender To The Fantasy followed by a great support show for the disappointing Lee Ranaldo here in Berlin. Anyway, Magik Marker’s guitar player and singer Elisa Ambrogio wasn’t lazy in the meantime. She recorded her first proper solo record and it’s out now via Drag City. Listen to complete The Immoralist LP over here or / and watch the gorgeous video to Superstitious below.
Steve Austin is not only the main character in The Six Million Dollar Man or a professional wrestler, Steve Austin is also the name of Today Is The Day’s mastermind. With an always changing line up he created the most hateful music I know. From Noiserock to Metal, always abhorrent and inhuman. (Try Temple Of The Morning Star!) His latest release Animal Mother came in today and you can listen to it below.
Finally the last episode of Noisey’s documentary NOLA: Life, Death And Heavy Blues From The Bayou about New Orleans’ heavy music scene is online. So, watch the whole thing in a row. Featuring Eyehategod, Crowbar, Down, …..
We’re always looking for and interested in good music. From everywhere and no genre boarders. A new free digital sampler called Distortion And Dissonance shows us Australia’s best and recent hardcore bands. Honestly, I never heard one of their names before but I guess that’s actually what I meant before. So, have fun and listen to these 17 bands to help promote Australia’s incredibly strong hardcore scene.
While everyone is talking about Soused, the collaboration record from Scott Walker and SunnO))) I just found a super mixtape compiled by Stephen O’Malley, one half of SunnO))) and Ideologic Organ label boss.
This mammoth mixtape finds O’Malley on typically mischievous form, as he plucks divisive works from a grab bag of recent listening material. It’s not for the faint of heart (as if you needed warning) at a generous three hours long, but let it sink in and you’re bound to discover plenty of drool-inducing, barely-heard gems.
Maybe it gives you an idea where his influences are coming from. And during listening to his compilation make sure you check out his recent Ideologic Organ label sampler.
Listening to Dag Nasty right now. So, it’s not a big surprise we’re fans of DC bands and their sound. An upcoming documentary tells this story.
Salad Days: The Birth of Punk In The Nation’s Capital is a documentary that examines Washington, D.C.’s 1980s hardcore punk scene. The film is centred on a movement that spawned a laundry list of influential bands including Minor Threat, Bad Brains, Rites of Spring and Fugazi as well as seminal labels such as Dischord and Teen Beat.
Watch the trailer below. Seriously, I can’t wait.
