She Likes It Heavy

Nov 5, 2014

Touring Italian death rock with Mission (U.K.) vocals.  Unfortunately I missed them, this album will take you straight back to the early 80’s in the best way.

'Till The Last Drop: Horror Vacui (Italy)(0:28-6:09)

Bauhaus re-born, singing God is dead.

Übermensch: Pawns (Brooklyn)(7:01-12:44)

Fade from Batillus has one of the best EBM/industrial bands in our modern times.  One man project.  He made my “best of” list last year.  This is from a new split with Zex Model.

Behind Glass_Second Pane: Statiqbloom (Brooklyn)(13:17-17:34)

Skinny frigging Puppy.  Need I say more??!  I heart them more than you.  I will be twirling around in storm clouds in December when I see them at the Warfield. 

wornin: Skinny Puppy (Vancouver)(18:17-22:57)

Criminal Code is flirts with punk and hardcore, but has a firm grip in post-punk.

Burning Backwards: Criminal Code (Tacoma)(23:21-25:13)

Institute shares a record label with Pharmakon, who is getting way more attention.  Institute rules, deserves more of the spotlight.

An Absence: Institute (Austin)(26:07-29:47)

Danish dark new wave, fronted by a strong vocalist.

Forever: Iceage (Denmark)(30:12-34:57)

Youth Code is a duo, definitely do not hide being influenced by bands like Nitzer Ebb and KMFDM and other old school EBM and industrial.  They are touring with Skinny Puppy. 

Let The Sky Burn: Youth Code (LA)(35:21-39:14)

Pharmakon is a one chick who is a complete noise-creating weirdo.

Autoimmune: Pharmakon (Brooklyn)(39:45-44:27)

Vicious Pleasures is yet another female-led band, she screams punk-ily.

In These Walls: Vicious Pleasures (Portland)(45:20-47:44)

Population have tried over the last 5 years to evolve, and they have ended with this thick new wave sound.

Sleepwalker: Population (Chicago)(48:15-52:27)

Female-led bay area band, gotta check them out!

June: Crimson Scarlet (Oakland)(52:52-57:49)

One of my fave post-punk bands this year, also from the bay area! Holy crap, lots of good stuff coming from our neck of the woods!!


Blood & Sweat: The New Flesh (Oakland)(58:32-END)
