I talk about sometimes needing people to tell me to go on.
Indian’s new album produced by Sanford Parker. It has been around 5 years since their last album. Noisey riffage, as good as their last album.
Rhetoric of No: Indian (Chicago) (0:28-6:43)
French grind, has played with one of my faves, Genghis Tron.
The Patriot, The Elite, The Icon: Stuntman (France) (8:41-12:37)
Another fabulous Chicago band – experimental, proggy, kind of DC style vocals. Even some jazz fusion – very Chicago-influenced.
Zeta II Reticuli: Murmur (Chicago) (13:17-20:06)
Dramatic neo-industrial post-punk.
Stupid in the Dark: Xiu Xiu (San Jose) (20:35-23:20)
Hexis wants you to be possessed by the King of Hell. Very evil, tight, badass.
Exhausit: Hexis (Denmark) (23:51-27:03)
Weird charming proggy pagan album from Greece. Greece, one of the top areas for super original talented metal. (Right now my list is: Finland, Italy, Greece)
Blood Guru: Hail Spirit Noir (Greece) (28:04-34:06)
Crust doom from Germy people.
In The Wall: Serpent Eater (Germany) (34:16-38:55)
On a split soon to be released with Primitive Man, Xaphan is kind of new – they have a 2 song demo that was recorded and produced on a frigging iPad.
Cold Surge: Xaphan (Minneapolis) (39:16-43:25)
Polish punks are probably real old farts. Not poseurs I mean.
III: CZERŃ (Poland) (43:58-48:56)
Italians go bleak.
21st Business Man: Under the Oak (Italy) (49:47-52:25)
The British Weedeater. So probably not as completely insane, but these guys aren’t afraid of being on the more brutal edge, rather than just having a good time.
Gauze Rite: BongCauldron (Leeds) (53:19-59:02)
Vancouverish noisey hardcore or something.
The Last Installment: Anion (Vancouver) (59:23-END)
