When talking about bands who shunned guitars from their lineup and ran with basses at full power, Exit_International and Castrovalva have always been the two bands that came to mind. Well now we have Modern Day Dukes.
HIT ME WITH YOUR LAZERS, YOUR LAZERS, YOUR LAZERS!
Society Of Losers are a record label with some hot shit on their hands right now, and new to their roster Sweet Deals On Surgery are yet another UK band to piss yourself with excitement over.
I think we have a name for ourselves covering a lot of obscure, weirder and damn right abstract music this year. The new single from Scar Polish is certainly up there.
Remember in the 90’s when Indie and Alternative Rock were quite moody but had something special about them? Well Pilod seem to.
Not many bands whack out tracks over 10 minutes long that really get me going. And these proggy types of music, even the (in my opinion) better ones don’t usually get further listens from me post review. Ancestro may be a first here.
This was initially just going to be me telling you why you should go and pre-order this tape based on the pleasure of hearing the preview track, but I have now been very fortunate enough to listen to the entire thing (including the tracks exclusive to the physical cassette release). And now you have to believe me when I tell you to bust out a couple of quid on this beast.
Anyone who pays the vaguest of attention to this site will know that we have very recently reviewed a single from these fellows, and if you actually read that then you may remember that I was intrigued as to how the full album ended up sounding. If all of this is news to you, check out Distract Me and come back to us (partly because it isn’t on the album and also because I’m probably going to refer to that review way too much because I haven’t slept and my mental capacity is focussed on keeping me awake right now).
Every so often I only crave louder and filthier music, and then a band will come along utilising big structures in such a way that the heavy use of distortion isn’t missed in the slightest. Enter Tabatha Crash.
