Thieves Like Us

This was released just last month but it hasn't been getting all the attention it deserves, no doubt such a good album cover and you can only expect great music, tunes to dance too. Not a doubt in my mind that a lot of you don't even dig this style of music (electro/dance) but this isn't just that type of album either, very similar to the Chromatics (of GSL fame, not the disco 'Italians Do It Better' one) in terms of it being an indie band. It's three dudes mixing in styles they want to be mixed, apparently they've been digging hip hop and dub lately but I don't really hear it too much in this album. The second song on here 'Drugs In My Body' is just a good song to listen too, really dancy, really up beat and you won't hate it, possibly get annoyed by it. I don't know what else to say, watch out for this band in 2009 i do think they're going to get hyped to oblivion. Fuck it right? Still available for sure, probably $20 or more but I think these records usually run for that much anyways.

Disco electro dance dance dance. Stuff has been making a come back since like 2004, Daft Punk has its 35 year old fans as well as its teenage and preteen audience in its grasp and will never EVER let go. Taking that into 4th generation electronica twice removed we get things like SymbolOne, dance driven beats bent on making a dent in the scene already ripping with more acts than you'd want with more songs being remixed than you should even really start to care about. SymbolOne takes this and realizes this, this ain't nothing silly, its good okay. If you dig this style of music then you're going to dig this, been compared to Valerie and will be doing work with Justice. This is still available through, well, i believe anywhere really. It has the original Love Juice cut as well as two remixes done by Danger TV and Moulinex. The other links are another Love Juice remixed by Loose Shus and Everything Louder Then Everything Else, a single released in 2007. Look for the full length coming out soon.

Taken - Between Two Unseens

So where did all of these bands like 7 Angels 7 Plagues, Misery Signals, This Runs Through, Underoath, etc. etc. get their ideas from? You know, that ultra-emotive airy metalcore that actually seems to serve a purpose beyond IT'S TIME TO FUCKING MOSH? Anyhow, I'm done skirting the details, they all ripped off Taken, or at least sound like it. Now listen to this shit, its mad tight.

3. Treaded Paths

<3 Mappy


they're on the same label as Boys Life and sound like them except much slower, tired, stoned. self proclaimed to be the highest most stoned pot headed 'emo' band in southern California's San Diego area has probably given you the incentive to think that they're like Electric Wizard. no not even. Chune sounds like sleeping a lot, maybe if Boys Life played Cerberus Shoal songs, Codeine sounds similar in terms of laziness. the lyrics add a lot more to the laziness of this band, they seem tired and unresponsive, mainly as though they are a day dream and are exactly like being really high and thinking too much about things you've known and come to expect. they have two full lengths , Burnt and Big Hat, No Cattle and an EP called Nine Ways To Sunday, nothing too fancy and not hard to find; all of it is on Amazon. here's the 10" and Big Hat, No Cattle.

We Had A Moment In Chinchilla

oktober skyline was a brilliant group from nazareth, which is in the lehigh valley, meaning a local treat. their early material is somewhat reminiscent of prayer for cleansing and taken, while over time they developed a sound more akin to a more melodic / less annoying dillinger escape plan. the comparisons don't really do them justice, but idk, theyre sweet, trust me.

I don't know anything about this band except that they were from San Fransisco and had four members, two female and two males. They broke up around two years ago. That's it. I don't know if there are anymore songs but this one makes me want to know, honestly give it a listen and if you have any idea of who they are then please let me know, totally into this piece of trash band. It's girl fronted dance pop but pure punk as well, zany lyrical force. You'll probably compare it to Le Tigre or Gravy Train!!!! but this stands out on its own.

Tower Of Rome - All Is Lost, All Is Lost, All Is Yet To Be Found

tower of rome is one of those spazzy grind bands from the northern midwest, and god i love them. they have all of the details of screechy guitars, grind bits, breakdowns everywhere, funny lyrical content, titles, but they actually pull it off somewhat like a grind band, rather than just idk... rehashing jane doe in 45 second incriments (idk if people have noticed yet, but this doesnt really work too well). the album's a bit sloppy, but its a damn intense nine minutes.

1. they say she died because she was too honest
2. real teamwork means that you pull your knife out of my back while i push mine deeper into yours
3. i want my fifty dollars
4. girls that smoke gross me out to the max
5. this is a film about a ghost
6. i screamed a lot on october 15
7. chicagi chicagi i think im gonna blow my own head off now
8. this is the worst time to ever run out of matches
9. the only attainable truth that comes to mind right now

125, Rue Montmartre

I guess I can’t say I honestly know too much about this band, so thank god this one will be a short post, probably. Well to start off they were from Germany and existed for a near two years (98 – 2000) and released two albums, a split with maggot and a self titled 7” and smuggled their way onto two compilation albums. Other than that I believe they have done nothing else. I don’t even think or know if their band members are doing anything as of late, I’m sure they are I just do not know. The sound is completely beautiful female fronted emo. Gorgeous twinkle laced guitars that display some traditional emo sound but then are able to get more into the style that is associated with low fi indie (or any 90’s band on an indie label such as Sarge, vocally though and sonically they are not like Sarge at all) and can be compared to The Pennikurvers and Stella in terms of music, vocal display and sound quality. The 7” is only three songs and is enjoyable; while their split with Maggat includes two songs of theirs (and two of Maggats which are also good), check it.

Architects - Untitled Demo/We Will Turn Your Cemetaries Into Your Cathedrals, And Your Cities Into Tombs

no album art makes me sad, but there's a pic of the band at the end !!

anyhow, this aint architects (the brits, but theyre awesome too), this be faithealer, in their earliest incarnation, playing a sweet little mix of hardcore, grind, and screamo. very lo-fi, depressive, and drony... the production makes it sound like, grimy idk. its the type of music you listen to when its just really cold and raining during the winter.

Skycamefalling - A Penny For Your Confessions...

Skycamefalling is a band I've been listening to for I don't know how long, since sometime in middle school I guess, when my brother's one friend picked up ...To Forever Embrace The Sun. From the second I heard this band, there was just something that clicked, just the whole atmosphere of the combined elements of the lo-fi production to the stop and go hardcore to breakdown to dissonant to melodic bit song structures.

This demo, is probably the best example of just the raw emotional display this band was capable of. Christopher Tzompanakis' vocal display is pure distress and frustration, the guitars are crunchy, dissonant, and thrashy, the drums vary from groove beats and breakdowns to classic punky beats. It's one of those jawesome old releases where you can see the origins of modern generic metalcore and shake your head in shame at what the genre's become.

Country Teasers

There has yet to be a band to exist that is anything like this one. The Country Teasers, ah, London’s finest sons, born and bred to whisper/scream/cough whimsical lyrics and prose hell bent on making you cross the line into realizing you are unsatisfied, that you want more, that you crave more and to understand that you do not deserve anything good but you will do anything in your power to get anything good. To get what you want. Now don’t let that message fool you, these boys aren’t anything close to preachers seeing as how they’re singing to the converted but by chance a ‘non believer’ (or ‘believer’ if you want to say that) may happen to stumble onto this amazing force then they may as well be handed their ticket to hell right then and there. You are not worthy. At any rate these sounds are gritty, dirty, reminiscent of old Blues songs that are in your face, angry and sad; but this isn’t a Blues band. The Country Teasers play beautiful Post Punk with hints of Country and Artsy Noise Rock. Lyrically you will probably be offended at least once, or question what the singer is singing but it’s amazing. Musically, you will recognize some bass lines and riffs from other songs time to time (you will hear Joy Division somewhere down the road), this band does know its roots and it won’t let you forget them either. All three albums represent various parts of the bands history, Back to the Future is no doubt the grittiest and rawest (it even has a live portion in the end), the Self-Titled album is cleaner but just as raw and possibly more sillier, Satan is Real Again (Or Feeling Good About Bad Thoughts) is just top notch, killer sound by a band that attempts to sound disgusting. Can be Post-Punk, can even probably be called Dark-Country (there is Dark-Wave after all) but will always be catchy. They’ve got a whole bunch of albums and I believe nearly all of them are still in print, once I discover how to rip vinyl I’ll get Secret Weapon Revealed At Last (Or Full Moon Empty Sports Bag) on here. D.I.Y., experimentation and evil.

Zombina and the Skeletones

I realize my last post was completely obnoxious and to show you how much writing all of that for just one band is completely worth it I will take time out of this post to further show you that I think Stationary Odyssey is very good. Okay now that we’re done with that we must continue into other territory. This band is very happy sounding, I think there is a lot to be said about girl vocalists nowadays, especially in our society full of bigamists and hardcore purists trying to branch out and say that this is more or less ‘all guy territory,’ and let’s face it, what options do you really have in the mainstream when It comes down to listening to female fronted vocalists? The Donnas? Honestly, you don’t want to listen to them past a couple of their songs and they will more than likely just be ‘RADIO HITS!’ Zombina and the Skeletones play a really good fun type of sound that you will enjoy from start to finish if you’re into 45 Grave, Lemuria and The Unlovables (they sound more like The Unlovables than Lemuria), the difference here is that their subject matter is about B Horror Movies or Space Odysseys, or Sci-Fi flicks you’d rent on Friday night and watch with your best friends while doing your make-up, painting your nails black and listening to your extensive collection of really obscure Goth Punk hits. Each album seems to take the form of some story line, concept, and ends completely tragic. You’d think this would be full of lyrical wankery like Rush’s albums or The Mars Volta but nope, this right here is simple pop punk debauchery of any story telling, its so simple and catchy, so good. They released a trilogy of 7 inches that tell a complete tale, if you can hunt those down (all OOP I believe); eventually they might end up here. I won’t get in depth with each album like I did with the last post, but I will say kind words about them. THEY’RE ALL GOOD. calls them Goth, Death Rock, yadda yadda, etc etc, but no way no how, this band is nothing short (or more) of pop punk with a different lyrical content. If you’re into what Glen Danzig has to say check them out, if you’re into Blink 182 give them a listen, if you like it when the girl next door gets murdered and then is stuffed full of plastic explosives then give it a try. Death Valley High and Taste the Blood Of…(their debut) are full lengths while Love Bits is one of their many E.P.s

p.s. I promise I'll start to write less and less, eventually.

Swarm Of The Lotus - The Sirens Of Silence

Now this is a cute album, it's got a nice dissonant breakdown's everywhere metallic thing going on to it. Very muddy and groove oriented, but spaced with random hardcore parts or death metal stomp sections... this album's kinda like when people play "mathcore" but the sludgy older brother who doesnt constantly vie for attention. Great drumming, interesting guitars, and intense vocals... these guys are pretty heavy, and designed to blaze to !! Definitely for fans of Botch, Knut, Norma Jean, Intronaut, and whatnot.

Stationary Odyssey

This band has put out some of the most solid post rock releases I have ever heard, so good. In this you'll listen too and discover that they can be the Mars Volta when they want to be the Mars Volta, that they can be Pelican too! Each album offers a little more than something from bands past/present/to come but in their own style and maybe even better. More or Less is More sounds like a complete psychedelic Post Rock Progressive trip, its sound is akin to earlier Mars Volta without vocals, think of the parts in between vocals in the songs that would go on for five minutes or so, just like that except not diluted or even boring (as the Mars Volta can sometimes get). Perpetual of The Retired Evermore sounds like its namesake, a Sludgy (at times) doomy (at times) escape into progressive metal or post-metal such as Pelican and ISIS, the album is short and will probably play amazingly quick. "UH (Rehearsal)," the last track on Perpetual of The Retired Evermore, is so good even though its just a Rehearsal track, shows what these guys can come up with at a moments whim. Head! Foot! And the Pink Axe is definitely my favorite of theres to listen too and was the soundtrack to Winter 07/08, listening to this album on long drives while it rained was really spectacular and nothing short of amazing. With Head! Foot! And the Pink Axe we return to a more post rockish stance and sort of forget the whole Psychedelic vibe they had with the other albums even though this one can just be as groovy if not more, as shown at 3:00 into Nobody Does it Better with the glitch noises and other synthesized sounds that they add (to a couple of other tracks as well). Head! Foot! And the Pink Axe is more like Do Make Say Think without incredibly long and boring songs, they keep it traditional without clocking it in at over 4:34 minutes. I think their entire catalogue is in print still so you might want to check it out, even though their web store has none of their 'actual' CDs on sale, just $5 downloads per album (there are more on there that aren't on here so if you really dig them you might wanna go ahead and check them out) and a neat t shirt going for around $15, you can also probably spot something nice on Interpunk or the label that released a couple of them, the Joyful Noise label. They're working on a new release and have already announced that it was definitely going to be weirder so be on the lookout for that.

Stationary Odyssey - More or Less is More
Stationary Odyssey - Perpetual of The Retired Evermore

If you're into the 'Joyful Noise' sound on Stationary Odyssey you might like to know that there IS an audio sampler for download on there site here. Enjoy it!

At The Throne Of Judgement - The Arcanum Order

At The Throne Of Judgement is one of many many bands within that "deathcore" movement... but they deserve some credit, cause well, they're actally good. Kind of like The Black Dahlia Murder (classic melodic death metal riffs, varied guttural-to-high rasp vocals), with a modern metalcore tinge to it. Also, there aren't breakdowns every 5 seconds, and no ultra-brutal Acacia Strain junts either. Basically, if you like circle pit focused Southern mdm, fucking get The Arcanum Order.

Virgin Mega Whore

Mark McCoy (of Spazz and Das Oath infamy) has been known to do some really outrageous sounding music, combined with Jeff Jellen (of MK Ultra) though, he has surpassed all expectations, all of them. This sound is like it was made in the late post punk era of Public Image LTD and The Silver Apples but dirtier, nastier, more cocaine/drug oriented, and lets just emphasize how dirty it sounds. The albums (both) are completely vulgar, no mercy action that will more or less make you want to shake your ass for one last dance before that fucking tractor beam takes you off to one planet out there in the middle of no where. Ever since Virgin Records got a hold of the name, realized its amazing play on words, the band has been operating under VMW which I'm sure would go swell as a tattoo in the middle of a red circle or a nice T-Shirt maybe. Think of Disco and think of Syringes and think of your gayest friend, or the gayest person you could ever meet ever and it still wouldn't sound as gross as these CD's. You know, this shit is so good, some douche bag had the honor of stealing my copy of the full length a long while back. You can purchase both of them at any record shop, I suppose, being as how the Full Length is still in print. Go ahead and check them both out here, the link includes both in one convenient ready to listen too package.

Systral - Black Smoker

What can be said about Germen Hardcore except that it is mind numbingly brutal and crushing as fuck. At the front of this hardcore machine was Systral, a band with a lot of notoriety for being an influence on Orchid and many other bands that had followed them. There is no doubt that this band is often overlook because of that very reason but happily is always looked into by those interested in understanding where that bone crushing sound came from. This Album is my favorite from them and their second Full Length, so god damn good. From beginning to end you get wall punching grooves and vocals that sound like a dog barking into your ear for hours at a time, they sound painful as though the singer is going through nothing but complete struggle and always has; there is no song that isn't brutal. The album is violent, chaotic and at times sounds nothing but like pure evil. The only other bands that did this whole shtick at this era were Morser, Acme and Carol. No song goes on longer than it should and no song is wimpy at any time. There are no complaints here, you get what you expect to hear straight from the first song to the last, Germans showing up Americans at some fucking ingenuity. The LP can be purchased HERE for $7.50 and the CD HERE for $12 even though the label it was released on, Edison Recordings, possibly no longer exists. Bands still try to sound like this but can't, they just fucking can't.

Portrait is genuinely one of the greatest bands I have heard. From beginning to end this discography is completely enjoyable and will be one of my favorites for a very long time. There isn't one song on here that hasn't become a sing a long or jaw dropper. Constellations From A Star Gazing Iris is a complete epic of a song and it doesn't even stop there when you think that's the top notch Portrait. The last few songs are from their earlier releases that definitely do show they have matured a lot as a band. One of the shortest songs but my favorite is definitely "Junction At Barcelona."

Joan of Arc - Boo! Human

I ain't one to lie... scratch that shit, I'm a fucking a liar, a huge fucking fatty pants asshole liar. I mean all I do is lie and I feel so damn good about it. But what I ain't lying about is the tantalizingness of Joan of Arks new album "Boo! Human." Just in case you didn't know, Joan of Arc is Tim Kinsella's new band and usually every album is more quirky and zanier than the last. You can call the band "Tim Kinsella and Friends Present: (Insert something like The Fucking Board You Shoulda Ate But Didn't Cuz It Basically Got Away)" and I wouldn't blame you. This album alone has 14 guest musicians. I think this one features his brother as drummer after a few that didn't so that's a good sign considering BOTH are from Cap N Jazz fame (A band that made a distinct mark in that midwest emo scene, the band that the Kossabone Red nearly became and the band that Algernon Cadwallader is basically becoming). I really like this album, there are no hit and misses for me here unlike the other albums and do not let the track titles fool you "9/11 two" is an enjoyable song and so is "A Tell-Tale Penis"... On Polyvinyl Records.

Nerce City - Catholic School

I have no idea what Nerve City is all about except that they are a fairly recent project and have a few tapes released on Coriander Tapes, Severed Hand and Sweet Rot. This collection is unreleased/OOP. Just grab it, it's almost as though you are listening to a reading about a Ghost town full of bodies that have not yet realized they have all been killed. DOGS is the song, it's just the song...

Nerve City - Catholic School DEMO

Index For Potential Suicide - Sex Violence Whatever...

Well Index For Potential Suicide are a band that has successfully mixed in elements and noise to create a sound that's a lot more cliche nowadays than it was way back in the 1990's. Formed in 1998 by four dudes with a fascination for Noise and experimental music who go by the names: Christopher Ashley, Brian Cooper, Robert Findlater and Frank Whiteside; who, after the band disbanded, formed The Diseased and The Avenging Disco Godfathers of Soul. They are an honest example of experimentation in the hardcore scene and are akin to Usurp Synapse, Jeromes Dream, early Teen Cthulhu and Orchids more experimental sounding songs. As far as I know, "The Newest Youth Rebellion" LP is still available for purchase from the Berlin, Germany based label Insolito; and the Discography "Sex Violence Whatever" is more than likely still available on ALONE records. The record is a good listen if you feel like killing everything you know you can kill and if not that then to at least have a better understanding of the time period they represent. Other bands HAVE done it better, but none of them have done it like Index For Potential Suicide. Be ready to punch your girlfriend in the head.

Nicole 12

Nicole 12 is noise, but not noise like Mossana or those other dumb Japanoise artists; nor noise-rock like Sonic Youth. Nicole 12 is the brainchild of Miko Asspa; if you are already familiar with harsh noise electronics then this could just be the next step is what you need to hear but if not then please be weary. The power of "Substitute" is summed up by a warning that is included in the packaging for the length :
"Due to the Unusual nature of this release it could be expected that some persons feel uncomfortable when hearing or reading the material. That’s why they invented the Stop button to your CD player and possibility to re-sell/throw away records"
You'll be glad to know that the "Braces" 7" is not as harsh as the complete album so you might want to start off with that one.

Any who, the content is considerably fucked up and after two tracks or so you get naseous or at least a little bit creeped by the remarkable commentary being said while there are glitches and pounds of static flowing through your speakers. All in all it is truly a spectacle that can only be listened to loud and as obnoxious as possible.

But seriously, fucked up shit.
