SONG OF THE WEEK: Protomartyr | Maidenhead

Protomartyr delivered one of my favourite guitar-based records of last year in the dark, post-punk rock of No Passion All Technique so I was pretty excited to see they already have a follow-up recorded and just released. Under Color of Official Right takes the key elements of the last album and improves on them exponentially. The vocals are less barked and approach melodic singing in … Continue reading SONG OF THE WEEK: Protomartyr | Maidenhead

SONG OF THE WEEK: Damien Jurado | Nothing Is the News

  Damien Jurado is on a roll at the moment with the recent release of his brilliant album Maraqopa, the follow-up to the equally impressive Saint Bartlett. This time around he has collaborated with Richard Swift, a great musician in his own right, and added some density and electricity to his beautifully weary songs. The duo released Other People’s Songs Volume One, an album of … Continue reading SONG OF THE WEEK: Damien Jurado | Nothing Is the News

SONG OF THE WEEK: Four Tet | Jupiters

Kieran Hebden is one prolific dude. Even though his full length albums only drop every few years he always has something on the go with single releases on various labels, putting together mix comps for Fabric and collaborating with Burial and Steve Reid. One of the recent tracks to appear on his own Text label is Jupiters which starts with some sublime kosmiche synth work … Continue reading SONG OF THE WEEK: Four Tet | Jupiters

SONG OF THE WEEK: Torche | Snakes Are Charmed

Around here we love a ton of different genres from americana to dub, post punk to ambient drone but nothing gets the blood moving like a good hard dose of metal. Of course there are a million sub-genres within from black to death, hair to thrash and we love most of them. Torche are one band that have been slowly evolving their sound and incorporating … Continue reading SONG OF THE WEEK: Torche | Snakes Are Charmed

Song Of The Week: Toy | Left Myself Behind

I’ve been on a bit of a shoe gaze vibe of late, what with the My Bloody Valentine reissues, an interview with Ride’s Mark Gardener and the excellent gig from The Horrors earlier in the year. The influence of that sound from the late 80s / early 90s is still resonating in the music of a ton of new bands and one that I’ve come … Continue reading Song Of The Week: Toy | Left Myself Behind
