Stand back, turn it up and hold onto something. Swiss trio Heavy Harvest hit the afterburners on this blistering one and a half minutes of hardcore noise rock. Think Jesus Lizard in a blizzard, or a practice session in a shipping container with METZ and Shihad. It’s brutally good and a sample of their new album Iron Lung which explores all corners of intense, heavy, unhinged noise rock. Sonic catharsis of the highest order in these fucked up times.

 

NEW MUSIC: One Sentence. Supervisor – Acedia

For fans of Fujiya & Miyagi, Neu!, Hot Chip

Here’s a crazy, wild yet totally controlled Krautpop sound from Swiss band One Sentence. Supervisor. ‘Acedia’ is a metronomic delight, galloping along and fizzing with handclaps, a vocal sound reminiscent of The Charlatans, guitar that explodes and surges skyward and the unique blend of virtuoso oud player Bahur Ghazi.

NEW MUSIC: Asbest – They Kill

Here’s some coruscating post-punk with angular sheets of guitar, drums that push and pull under the anguished howl of singer Robyn Trachsel from the band Asbest. They’re a trio out of Switzerland, probably the first Swiss band we’ve featured here at DS. Their sound caught our ear as it reminded us of the kind of existential heavy yet intelligent punk rock of Die! Die! Die!, METZ and Jesus Lizard. Great stuff. They’ve got a new album ‘Driven’ due out this Friday, September 28th.
