HEATHE – “ON THE THE TOMBSTONE; SYMBOLS ENGRAVED PT. 2”

The Danish “Tapetown Session” has quickly become one of my favorite vehicles for exposure for  (mostly) heavy, guitar bands. This latest from the Danish Noise Rock band Heathe, however, sets the standard. Uncompromisingly brutal, Heathe recalls the best tendencies when Noise and Psych rock hook up in some seedy club bathroom. In-the-red dissonance meets melodic, …

The Swiss producer’s new high BPM, 90’s Rave inspired track is full-on linear house madness replete with glistening ambient passages running throughout and distorted bass lines dropping like mana from some heaven-club inspired afterlife. “Fall Into My Mind” is a massive endorphin release spread across 5 + minutes.

JELANI ARYEH – “PATAGONIA”

“Patagonia” begins with an bubbling Arp synthesizer passage that forms the sturdy backbone of the 17 year old artist’s latest single.

MICHAEL A. MULLER – “FIXED SHADOW”

Michael A. Muller’s video for “Fixed Shadow” displays the axiom that no matter how far we get we can’t run away from ourselves. The multi-instrumentalist and co-founder of the excellent Austin-based collective Balmorhea, Muller’s drone work sets the course for  an eliding, spectral pacing while deeply resonant double bass hits punctuate the subtle movement and …

SLUG DEATH

I sit down with Marlo and Cleo of the Cincinnati noise project Slug Death to discuss their musical influences, indulge an unwieldy conversation about Phish and listen as Slug Death poke holes in the dominant white noise dude paradigm. It’s a good one. Link to Slug Death Bandcamp Contort Your Body, For Like, Three Hours …
