    SPELTERINI

    pergélisol / chorémanie

    [engl] When two ex-Chausse Trappe and two members of Papier Tigre and La Colonie de Vacances got together mid-2017 to try out some of Meriadeg Orgebin’s ideas, it soon became the band Spelterini. Named after the tightrope artist Maria Spelterini, their music is always on the edge, tense yet flexible. They make their own fabric based on minimalism, drones, feedback and every accident, break or any other part is captured by the band and fuels the creative process, reenacting each performance and enhancing their direct approach. The band is already a remarkable touring act with acclaimed performances at the Levitation festival in Angers and everywhere in France. The band’s first release Pergélisol / Chorémanie will be released on September 20th, 2019 on Kythibong records in France (vinyl LP) and Mascarpone Discos in Spain (cassette tape). Two sides, two pieces, two moments, two methods. A «split» between two facets of the band. Born from the first year of in camera rehearsals, ‘Pergélisol’ comes from Spelterini’s live repertoire. This version was captured on the spot by Manuel Duval at La Grange cavale in June 2018. ‘Chorémanie’ is a collage game made up of oppositions, repetitions and break-ups, whose composition is purely the result of the recording process. The two tracks fulfill themselves between uptight post-punk, repetitive music and ambient drone, somewhere between This Heat, Swans and Eliane Radigue. The album was mixed by Spelterini between late 2018 and early 2019.

    SPIDER KING

    Shot to pieces

    [engl] “Leaving you spellbound in its androgynous vocal delivery, Spider King’s Animals is a haunting children’s march that paralyses me with each listen” Cedric Bixler Zavala (Mars Volta/Antemasque) An unknown pleasure torn out of Manchester’s lost DIY manual, this overqualified/underexposed post-punk pop pillar cast an almost invisible undetected web across the history of Manchester’s inner-city music scene which has trapped body parts of The Mothmen, Martin Hannett, Gerry And The Holograms, John Cooper Clarke, The Blue Orchids, Naffi Sandwich (The Naffis) and The Fates in its glue. As a central mast to 1970s/80s Manchester’s “deserted” DIY era, spanning angular jazz funk, punk and sarcastic synth pop, Spider King has also played huge parts in Manchester’s honorary adoption of The Velvet Underground’s Nico (as her lead guitarist), fronted Martin Hannett’s first ever band and inhabits a key roll in the careers of Sad Cafe, Alberto y Lost Trios Paranoias, Paul Young and AC/DC’s Mancunian debut. With dozens of self-penned songs, unreleased demos and two of the best collectable Manc punk funk 45s to grace collectors want lists it’s almost unbelievable (almost tragic) that Mike King never released a full length album… until now. Shot To Pieces is one of the most elusive jagged pieces of the North West’s punk funk puzzle. Recorded sporadically between 1979 and 1983 with a cast of characters from the Rabid/Absurd label family, such as behind the scenes synth wielder John Scott from Gerry And The Holograms, and producers like Laurie Latham (The Blockheads) it’s plain to see why 2016?s current music climate is the perfect time for the Spider King’s lost music to resurface. Commonly recognised by stalwarts of the era’s mutating punk/alt/indie genre as “the one that got away”, Spider King is the archetypal artist’s artist as well as the outsider’s outsider and the hardest working man in no-business who is now attracting a whole new audience of champions from bloggers, vinyl nerds and well respected contemporary musicians with his appearances on mix-tapes and various artist compilations. On hearing this essential release you could argue that these lost “spider-grams” are more relevant now than they were when those arachnophobic A&R men shooed him away over 3 decades ago. For those who ain’t afraid to get bitten say hello to the Spider King.

    SPIRITUAL MAFIA

    Al Fresco

    [engl] Alfresco is the debut album from Spiritual Mafia. The band played a handful of shows a few years ago, but found it near impossible to continue due to members spread across the far reaches of Australia. Try organising practice when some live in Victoria, another in Queensland, and another in the Northern Territory. Somehow Spiritual Mafia managed to record an album, and look forward to re- establishing their existence in a much-craved post-lockdown world. Validating the band’s semi-ridiculous name, there is something ‘spiritual’ about this album. Alfresco breaks things down to their basic elements. Lyrics focus on themes of water, food, and the human body. Primitive, yet timeless stuff. The themes are complimented by music as equally unpretentious. The riffs neglect any grandiose changes and keep hammering down upon the listener like a violent Mafioso collecting the interest and the principle. It’s a different kind of spirituality that one wouldn’t find in the background of a yoga class. But it does have a Zen aspect. Think Stooges or Brainbombs for no-brainer comparisons. But on top of the standard rock band instrumentation, add some cosmic synths, and healthy amounts of turntablism littered throughout the jams. Alfresco tries to remind the listener that if we forget our troubles for a moment and go for a swim (20 minutes after eating), then the world would be a happier place.

    SPLLIT

    Spllit Sides

    [engl] Somewhere out there, a new sound known as Next Level Music exists. The hot and humid Amite River basin of Baton Rouge, Louisiana is the unlikely, albeit natural inflection point for such a sound - created by a duo with a driving penchant for originality, known as SPLLIT. The story of Spllit begins with a fun challenge of sorts: to write and record split sides of an album in under a day's time. Enter Urq and Marance, and their arsenal of odd-shaped guitars, synthesizers, glass and metal percussive gadgets, marimbas, and so-on. "Spllit Sides" slowly rises from a cacophony of tape splicing into clear and concrete Next Level Music. Like an acid tableaux vivant ~ a swirling sonic whirlwind of loose and odd time signatures come into play along with the occasional pop sensibility. Originality remains key in Spllit's formula, but let's establish some sonic kinship - maybe a Devolved, Deep South version of The Flying Lizards. Or a deep fried Eno sitting in with The Magic Band. This Heat from a place that's actually hot and has quietly housed eccentrics like The Zoomers for decades. Freaky shit from a fun(ky) new cloud. Spllit's first album features seven brand new cuts and a fresh coat of ether applied to their previous "Spllit Together" cassette, with a vibrant mastering job courtesy of Caufield Schnug (Sweeping Promises). Spllit Sides comes packaged in a 20pt. reverse board sleeve with full color insert and download code.

    STABAT STABLE

    Ultrissima on the junks moon

    [engl] Incredible, idiosyncratic and obscure early 80s French futurist DIY project led by Jean-Luc Aime (Univers Zero) this feature-length album of elusive recordings marks the bonafide axis point where Zeuhl School meets synth pop, dark ambient and early electro culled from rare vinyl and disparate cassette co-op releases for this first ever LP release. A lost art-efact from a micro genre where ZED, Eskaton and Heldon share outernational tape space with Vox Populi! The Normal, Colin Potter and Luc Marianni this record occupies a unique place on the shelves of fans of early DIY electro and post punk while ticking the boxes of 80s VHS OST enthusiasts and the growing interest in European cassette zine projects. These melodic macabre tape experiments fuse multi-track cassette experiments with home-made special effects at the hand of an accomplished multi-instrumentalist working on the outer reaches of disenfranchised progressive-pop and reluctant techno defining then deconstructing genres that have yet to exist. Fuelled by futurist gothic imagery and operating on a parallel plain to his European and American contemporaries there are few artists like Stabat Stable and virtually none more enigmatic. This benchmark record is the first signpost to a darker part of your musical want-list as the invisible glue for fans of the aforementioned anti-genres. File under “Not Yet”.

    STACHES, THE

    Great Depression

    [engl] The Great Depression, the latest release from Geneva art punks the Staches, fits a lot of action into an economical two tracks. The band has flirted with raucous garage rock primitivism on their past releases, but here they pare down their sound and go all in for minimal post-punk that nods to krautrock via mechanical riffs and the addition of ambient synths. It’s a good fit for a band who have grown to be formidable songwriters with musicianship to back up their genre-melding ideas. The title track is built on a stomping garage beat with a buzzy guitar line that’s almost prog-like in its construction. B-side “You Are Still a Stranger” is a deconstructed pop song with stream of consciousness lyrics that collapses into a cloudy, off-kilter chorus led by an echoing synth line and layered vocals.

    STACHES, THE

    This Lake is Pointless

    [engl] „This Lake Is Pointless“ a statement made by Mr. Anton Garber boywonder of the Modern Talking of our time - PUFF , regarding a puddle in the countryside of Bourgogne / France during the beautiful festival of Cour Denis. The title of this third studio album, which The Staches recorded on their own with a Tascam - 4track and a computer, in their chosen home of Leipzig / Germany also refers to their original home - the city of Géneve, it’s beautiful lake and pathetic fountain. The fact that they left these comforting, clean streets of their wealthy home to fully dedicate their carcasses to play and record a very own brand of emotionally challenging synth guitar „Rockmusic“ also leads me to alternatively (and more accurately) name this record: „ Tales Of Exile And Isolation“. I mean you can really hear them going out of their minds zoning stoned during a nasty winternight recording just to see the sun arise to an equally dark and grey day. Sounds depressing? Yes! But this record is everything but depressing because it has a very forgiving, conciliatory quality that I am looking for in a lot of music. Speaking of depression - the opener The Great Depression is just as bold as a Pernod on ice splashed right into your face (by your fav. bartender), the first words „The great depression - EmotionaI competition“ (followed by a german „Eins Zwei Drei Vier“ that in it’s bored dumbness reflects perfectly how annoyed you can get by the language that you are supposed to learn after living for some time in your new home ) sung with that not hidden at all french accent always kills me right away. Followed by the laid back, groovy Burger King - drive - thru hymn Fake Stomach Ache, which features deliciously dry drums a thick leading bassline accompanied by a toyish sounding synth and a nice flat sounding Marchand ( yes that is someone of the band ) signature guitar. Again great lyrics and multiple voices adding up to the general theme of desperation and winter loneliness. A single great line sums up the whole phenomenon of Neo -Hippie - Techno - MDMA bullshit that you can refer to immediately if you have ever been at a club, an afterhour or just happen to live in a big ,hip ( german ) city „Living in the work zone, feeling low, living the same day, every day, the same day after a night of drugs and no idea of who or what to blame“. I could read a big deal of criticizing modern society and yourself as part of it in all of this, but it’s never delivered in a dogmatic way and not too hidden as well, which is not easy to achieve. Thank God For Mc Donald’s is a very good title and a very good song indeed. Surprised to learn that these fellow Switzerlanders never got introduced properly to Sonic Youth I still tend to find a lot of their momentum in the Staches’ compositions. Especially in the closing instrumental intro of Hummus, a stoic and acceptingly told story of a date that almost didn’t happen „ Sitting at the table and I know she won’t arrive - The dish is cold and I am almost out of fries“ sung with a little accent that I’d file under fake - british - punk, but doesn’t annoy. As you may have already realized you made it till the namedropping part of this review and I cannot let you get through it before mentioning Parquet Courts and Mastodon, decide for yourself. But you can def. hear how they are influenced by a lot of australian stuff as the likes of Hierophants or UV Race ( there is even a song called VW race, and the last record was mastered by Mickey Young - ok, yes this guy is mastering EVERYTHING, but this is still cool! ) and equally electronically enhanced 80s german Wave, No Wave or New Wave music. The band is probably almost as annoyed by these comparisons as by being referred and thereby reduced to a female act, girl punk or feminist outfit ( I will officially refer to them as Male Punk here so this probably won’t make it to the final version). Especially enjoyable are all the little things going on before after or inbetween the songs and the ironic touch towards handling the own persona - see Money In My Veins dealing with the curse and blessing of coming from one of the richest countries in the world. This record for sure doesn’t wear off fast, it rather grows and doesn’t get boring, especially the depths of dealing with undealt emotions and the obligatory heartbreak make this really interesting and referable especially after a couple of times listening to it. „Allrighty dudskies, en voiture Simone and to Victory Middlesbrough!“

    STREET EATERS

    The Envoy

    [engl] "Street Eaters are a truewave/punk band from Berkeley+Oakland, CA that has drawn a range of sonic comparisons to bands from Wipers to Masshysteri, Autoclave to Drive Like Jehu, Huggy Bear to KARP, Sonic Youth’s Bad Moon Rising to Warsaw. After years of relentless international touring on the heels of their well-received album ""Blood::Muscles::Bones"" (released on Nervous Intent in the U.S./Contraszt! in Europe), Megan March and John No returned home to troubled times in their immediate bay area underground punk community/family and the world at large. True to form, the band sought to come to terms with this changed landscape by diving deeply into their own recording studio to create a new record with an expansive new vision. This record, ""The Envoy"", is a concept album based on famed dystopian, gender revolutionary, anti-authoritarian author Ursula K. Le Guin's influential books ""The Dispossessed"" and ""Left Hand of Darkness"". Songs are at the heart of the album and keep its momentum and energy high, atop a shifting musical landscape underpinned by tension, fierce resolve, isolation, and the vastness of mental and physical space. Directly inspired by Le Guin’s radical speculative fiction and analytical lens on the world around us and beyond it, Street Eaters tackle transformative and transgressive lyrical themes of oppression, resistance, and change explored in the books. The songs are interspersed with instrumental interludes layering field recordings, planetary oscillations, comets, glaciers cracking, sea lions using tonal underwater sonar, a modded karaoke box, and more. However, the band’s core maximized-minimalist aesthetic - saturated and overdriven bass, propulsive yet bombastic drumming, and intense dual vocals - remain front and center. "

    SUDDEN INFANT

    Buddhist Nihilism

    [engl] Swiss Industrial-Dada-Noise-Rock band based in Berlin. Their 2014 album "Wölfli's Nightmare" on Voodoo Rhythm Records was produced by Roli Mosimann (Swans, The Young Gods, Wiseblood) and was very well received by critics and audiences. "Buddhist Nihilism" will consolidate the bands ability for bizarre and intense compositions full of left field humour, powerful rhythms and twisted structures. Brilliantly mixed and mastered by Martin Siewert (Radian) in his Vienna studio. "Buddhist Nihilism is a real fistful of sturm und drang, a real departure for the band. The new record leaves some of the noise and industrial elements behind and sees the band streamlining its approach. "Sudden Infant go all the way. Nothing is held back." - Keith Moline / The Wire "One of Europe's finest Noise provocateurs!" - Matthew Kosloff / Skyscraper Magazine

    SUSPECTRE

    s/t

    Suspectre ist eine neue Post-Punk Band aus Frankfurt. Sie wurde im Jahr 2018 von drei Freunden gegründet, die über mehrere Jahre in verschiedenen DIY-Projekten aktiv waren. Nach den ersten Konzerten im Jahr 2019, wurden sie aber schnell wieder durch die Pandemie gestoppt. Dennoch, oder deshalb gingen sie im Sommer 2020 ins Studio und nahmen ihr Debütalbum auf. Heraus kam eine 12" Platte mit 8 Songs, die eine diffuse Mischung aus verschiedenen Punk-verwandten Genres abbilden. Zusammengehalten durch ein einfaches 3-Instrumenten-Arrangement kombinieren sie den rhythmischen Drive von Garage Punk mit warm-melodischem Pop-Appeal und kreieren dadurch ihren eigenen Sound in der weiten Post-Punk-Landschaft. Textlich drehen sich die Songs um innere Zustände und das Verhalten von Individuen in der modernen Konsumgesellschaft. Insbesondere bringen sie die Erfahrungen von Entfremdung und sozialem Druck zum Ausdruck. So kommentieren sie die Zumutungen des zeitgenössischen Lebens, das zwischen den Enttäuschungen uneingelöster Erwartungen und der Sehnsucht nach Besserem oszilliert.

    SWEEPING PROMISES

    Hunger for a Way Out

    [engl] Straight from the depths of an unused Boston-area concrete laboratory comes the debut of Sweeping Promises. Written and recorded with a patented ""single mic technique"" just before quarantine, ""Hunger for a Way Out"", is a post-punk leaning gem of unpolished DIY sound. The title track kicks things off in absolutely classic fashion, full of spirited hooks that echo the early Rough Trade sound. Angular guitars and sharp synth notes float atop a raw rhythm section, while Lira Mondal's effervescent vocals truly define Sweeping Promises' sound. There's something simple yet otherworldly about these tracks - you have the DIY prowess of Kleenex/LiLiPUT and Girls at Our Best!, a brooding new wave-y minimal synth sound woven in, and an undeniable pop-leaning appeal captured in vibrant monaural glory. It's hard to mistake these ten tracks of naturally urgent and driving post-punk for anything other than sheer brilliance. Sweeping Promises deliver in spades on ""Hunger for a Way Out"".

    SYNTHETIC ID

    Apertures

    [engl] There’s a new best band in San Francisco. And this band plays a beautiful cacophony of raw, frenetic guitars, fiercely pounded drums, and jerky yet oddly melodic vocals. Perfect timing and guitar damage reminiscent of the Proletariat underscores a vocal delievery not dissimilar to the Observers but less operatic and more desperate. Synthetic ID sound like Greg Sage, D. Boone, and Colin Newman fabricating the house band for the International Space Station. Or better yet, spending three days in close quarters on an uncharted trek to the Sea of Tranquility. Anxious paranoia dripping from the walls. It's jerky, derailed, and draws heavily from early post-punk, but chugs along at a classic punk tempo, blasting out totally agitated lyrics the whole time. Space madness? Or just a need to escape the surface of this planet, even if it just be through the act of playing two minute punk jams? Either way, it's exciting and different. This record is a tight, fuzzy underground treasure in the waiting.

    TANNING BATS

    On The Assembly Line Of Heads

    Das Berliner Trio weiß, wie man Post Punk mit Disco-Beats auflädt. Wieder so ein Genre-Hybrid aus Berlin. Erst am Montag haben wir versucht, die Dead Kittens einzuordnen und sind gescheitert. Jetzt schicken sich die Tanning Bats an, uns Kopfzerbrechen zu bereiten. Post Punk-Disco steht im Pressetext. Ja, passt, nehmen wir das. 2017 gab es ein erstes Tape mit viel polternden Punk. „On The Assembly Line Of Heads“ (Twintoe) wird als Debütalbum angekündigt. Dem wird es gerecht, denn vom LoFi-Krach ist das mittlerweile sehr weit entfernt. Das Trio klingt sehr tight. Da ist immer viel Bewegung nach vorn drin, gepaart mit der kalifornischen Art den Garage Rock zu spielen. Eile trifft auf Entspannung also. Besonders gut ist das auf dem fantastischen „Focused Vision“ zu hören. - Reverb Is For Lovers

    TERROR BIRD

    Human culture

    Hinter Terror Bird verbirgt sich Nikki Never, eine Frau, die man wohl spätestens nach dem ersten Konzert verehren muss, schafft sie es doch alleine auf der Bühne, nur mit ihrem Notebook, maskiert und sich räkelnd, eine so mitreisende Show darzubieten, dass man kaum mehr wegschauen mag. Nachdem schon einige Tapes und Singles vorweg gingen, hat man es hier mit ihrem ersten Longplayer zu tun. Musikalisch zwischen 80s Glampop und minimalistischem New Wave, sehr fein gezeichnet mit ihrer einer dezent, hallenden Stimme und treibendem Keyboard, melancholisch und schön. Für Fans von Zola Jesus, XX, Former Ghosts

    TERROR BIRD

    secret rituals

    Auch wenn der Vergleich hinkt und Blond von Natur aus etwas langweilig wirkt - Nikki Never alias Terror Bird ist das dunkelhaarige Pendant zu Zola Jesus. Ähnlich hobbit-haft und mindestens ebenbürtig in Bezug auf Eleganz, Geheimniskrämerei und Mysteriösität. Was für ihr Erscheinungsbild gilt, lässt sich 1:1 auf ihre Musik übertragen. Geisterhafte 80s Goth-Pop Tunes mit oft treibenden Beats und wavigem Einschlag, perfekt für den Dancefloor und wiederbelebt für den Underground des 21. Jahrhunderts, stehen im Gegensatz zu düsteren, melancholischen slo-mo Balladen, die von der klaren Stimme Nikki Nevers´ veredelt werden. Da darf man getrost ins Schwärmen geraten!

    THE ASTRONAUTS

    It's All Done By Mirrors

    [engl] The Astronauts second album It’s All Done By Mirrors was originally released by All the Madmen in 1983 and finally gets reissued on vinyl for the first time. Original copies are now really sought after and on a lot of people's wants lists due to both its scarcity and its status among outsider art, free music and weirdly enough peace punk fans. It’s All Done by Mirrors is a stunning collection of explosive pop songs and traditional folk ballads and considered to be the pinnacle of the Astronauts recorded output. It’s easy to hear and see why. Musically it’s tighter and more focused than on the debut album Peter Pan Hits the Suburbs and lyrically it’s on another level. From Mark Astronaut's lyrical pen comes a woman dreaming of the Dorset coast whilst writing to her former lover (Seagull Mania); or the man on the street and his wife living out the final day before nuclear destruction (Typically English Day). Mark Astronaut really should been seen in the same light as Ray Davies from the Kinks with his observations of a time long gone. Three of the tracks feature legendary sax player Lol Coxhill. As with all Astronauts releases - totally under rated yet totally essential.

    THEE OH SEES

    Drop

    [engl] "Drop" was recorded in a banana ripening warehouse (no joke) with hair-farming studio warlock Chris Woodhouse playing drums and graced with the presence of talented gurus Mikal Cronin, Greer McGettrick, and Casafis adding horns and vocals. The result pushes the familiar polarities of the group farther outward than ever before…opener "Penetrating Eye" might be the heaviest Oh Sees song yet, "Transparent World" and "Put Some Reverb On My Brother" foam with seasick fuzz, and yet the ballads, like the harpsichorded "King's Nose" and the lush and stately closer "The Lens", extend their oeuvre into mellotronic, far-out pop with delicacy and grace. This schizophrenia heralds the man and the band into an unseen future in classic Dwyer fashion - with restless energy harnessed into exquisitely crafted jams, with an emphasis on the pensive and the paranoid in turns. Featuring artwork by Jonny Negron. All vinyl includes a handsome gatefold lyric sheet insert.

    THEE OH SEES

    Mutilator Defeated At Last

    [engl] Here we have nine muscular tunes primed to pummel to. Last year’s Drop was more schizophrenic, ranging from heavy to whimsical and back - Mutilator Defeated At Last has more in common with the monolithic hugeness of Floating Coffin - with only two slight reprieves in heaviness this is a record made to be played loudly and that demands bodily sacrifice inherently. Despite the plutonium heavy feel, Thee Oh Sees continue to be omnivorous - synths and acoustic guitars expertly wind their way throughout like veins of gold through granite - any and all that stands in its way will be devoured and assimilated.
