    BOLOS

    Saint Henry

    [engl] "Two years ago as Austin’s complacency felt saturated by the overall stagnation of rock n roll, I came across The Bolos. They were young, hungry, and most importantly not just another band jumping shark and attempting to poorly play psyche. From the very beginning they stood out as a band with grit, shaping music out of creativity rather than a need to feel cool, a rare band from San Antonio to not lean on the region as a crutch but instead using it to incubate their noise and presence into something worth more than scene nods and not having to pay the cover whenever hitting up the local spot. In the time that’s passed I’ve kept a close watch on how their sound has developed, taking note as they stretch into themselves all the while climbing the impossible hill of recognition with absolute determination without the socialite stigma that often comes with it (which if we are being honest is what gets me the most stoked about the rest of the world slowly opening its heart to them). My days of tolerating bands who define themselves by rock n roll in hopes of being propped up as some holy savior of it are over, The Bolos are New York in the 70’s, a band without sly intentions or music shaped for the convenience of cool, a band who gets on the stage each night with a presence that clearly shouts, “fuck you if you can’t dig this,” never once have they seemed to need you to accept them, never once have I heard them put out a song backseating their integrity to chum up with whichever hyped sound of the week is, two years in on my awareness they have certainly proved themselves tough enough for our love".

    BOTTOMFEEDERS

    Blockade

    [engl] Bottomfeeders, the band from Louisiana, makes one stop in France to release their first 7 "," Blockade ", via Six Tonnes De Chair Records, distributing the minutes between hordes of rock that suck from garage, punk and psychedelia, do the honors the song that gives name to the album with a master class covering the 50's and 70's, without forgetting the rattle snake of the 60's, a framework that slides through the guitar strings of Chris Lyons and Luke Junk, Alex Zilinski's bass and Lucas Bogner's drumsticks, showing Chris's vocals an endemic addictive evil, whose toxicity increases thanks to that reverberation that hits the neurons making it impossible to hear beyond his voice, weakening its effect when positioning Oh Sees in the instrumentation , although his reason is imposed to the Californian's delirium before turning off and on again the lights to welcome 'Myth', a fuzz and lyric scourge, which carries the extrasensory of the title to his own nation, umpteenth agitation against what it is happening there right now, maintained with a rhythm that invites to be danced from one place to another, and with enough energy to leave the movements aside and join the vocal slogans. 'Reverse Perverse' intrudes into the anti-system underworld to create a global panic, which the quartet has under control through a sound made in Pennsylvania that gives the theme its own identity, walking between the chosen degeneration and the possible repentance of it , but this last one, in another life in which little seems to matter details like this one, so it touches nothing more than to lose the head in the here and now.

    DOUG TUTTLE

    Anywhere You Run

    [engl] Another gauzy glimpse of psych-pop sunshine rolls in from Doug Tuttle today. The a-side to his latest single from Six Tonnes de Chair, “Anywhere You Run” lopes in on a gentle jangle and a sun-faded feeling that’s hard to shake. The song is a bleary-eyed cruiser passing by in slow motion, but even so it seems to end too soon forcing the needle back to the beginning for replays again and again. Both sides of the single pair well with Tuttle’s last LP, the blissfully beautiful Dream Road. The songs here are cut from the same cloth as the album’s dream-doused psych-pop, wafting in on autumnal breezes that ripples just slightly in the sun. The single’s limited, so don’t let the lounged feeling lull you into complacency — 2 variants : 200 on black vinyl and 100 on blue vinyl. Artwork created by New Zealand artist Callum Rooney. I recommend nabbing one while you can. The single lands April 3rd.

    HOOVERIII

    Fathom

    [engl] Following up their excellent album of space-sliced psych from last year, L.A.’s Hoover III return with a new single on French enclave Six Tonnes De Chair. Starting with a riff that scratches the ol’ runes of Sabbath in the sand, the band proceeds to drive the track in a lighter direction, welding the heavy guitar chug to echo-dripped harmonies. The track doesn’t just troll for grooves, though. As they arc into the second half the band stompboxes the warp drive and takes “Fathom” through a few layers of cosmos. Hoover III have been working a particularly potent strain of Space Rock in their first couple of releases, and if this new single is an indicator of where they’re headed, then the next LP threatens to be one to watch out for. In the meantime, this is a good reminder to shake the earthly tether once in a while.

    Femme Fatale

    [engl] Welcome danger, welcome debauchery and welcome Death. And please, be at ease. 'Cause Rotterdam's Iguana Death Cult doesn't perceive the three of you as outcasts or misfits. In the hex of their dynamo-like garage wallop, you belong. Because Iguana Death Cult doesn't play by reality's rules. Their racket is both fierce and hook-heavy, bending the psyche into submission until the scenery warps into something akin to that famous lizard scene in Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas. After releasing their debut ‘The First Stirrings of Hideous Insect life’ last year, Iguana Death Cult has hit the ground running, performing with the likes of together PANGEA, Guantanamo Baywatch and King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard. Iguana Death Cult is currently in the midst of writing and recording their sophomore LP, which promises to expand far beyond their well-established proto-punk/garage rock blueprint.

    JEFF THE BROTHERHOOD

    Radiating Fiber Plane

    [engl] JEFF The Brotherhood is an art project started by brothers Jake and Jamin Orrall in 2002 in a basement in Nashville, TN. Their work is influenced by many types of music including jazz, black metal, motorick rhythm and hard rock, as well as many artists and environments including the film work of Werner Herzog, the choreography of Kate Bush, and the rivers of Tennessee. Over the last decade their art has taken them all over the world including Hawaii, New Zealand and Russia. They have given well over a thousand live performances and created countless art objects including zines, puppets, videos, and eleven full length albums. JEFF The Brotherhood was started with one goal in mind, to do or create whatever they feel with no rules or boundaries. Their latest offering is an experimental rock album called "ZONE". It was recorded and co-produced by Collin Dupuis in a converted warehouse called Club Roar. Alicia Bognanno (Bully) makes a guest appearance on the album, she is the lead vocalist on the song "Roachin". The album took about two weeks, 4 racks of ribs, a few dozen chicken wings, 3 pork chops, some sausage, a brisket, and a whole lot of smoke wood to make. It is the third installment in a spiritual trilogy of albums including Heavy Days (2009) and We Are The Champions" (2011). It is available worldwide August 12 from Dine Alone records.

    KAZ MIRBLOUK

    Sidestep

    [engl] Kaz Mirblouk is the self-titled solo project of the Los Angeles-native multi-instrumentalist. Despite playing music growing up, Mirblouk didn't begin writing or performing his own songs in a live setting until he went to college in Davis, CA. To date, Kaz has released both an EP, Through the Glass, with long time collaborator and current drummer Joey Kaufman, and his debut album, Imitate, Intimidate, both on lolipop records. After a move back down to his hometown of Los Angeles, Kaz began to perform live as a four-piece, with newcomer Crosby Lloyd as a second guitarist and more permanent member alongside Joey Kaufman. Mirblouk's sound has been described as being "drenched in a sunny Golden State vibe while retaining a great deal of urban grit and grime" with enough psychedelia to add some space and groove.

    EP

    [engl] The three piece strikes again with a record that represents the band itself : beauty, chaos, tension and relief. This ep is the result of numerous jams where the drums/bass remain frenetic, and the guitar/vocals stand impassive in front of what could look like a big beautiful mess. The band has proudly kept the same team as it’s previous LP to work on that new material: this has been recorded at le K7 studio with Franck Molin, mastered by Renaud de Saint Vaast, and cover designed by the mighty Chufy.

    MAKE-OVERS

    Learning Curve

    [engl] Make-Overs are a unique duo of redheaded musical malcontents who hail from the grey suburban waste- land of Kilnerpark South Africa.?Formed in mid 2010 with Martinique on drums/ vocals and Andreas on guitar/vocals, the couple hit the South African scene with a frenzied live act that cuts through you like a machete. With elements of rock, pop, punk and noise and an intense, ener- gy-driven performance, the Make-Overs can fit a variety of bills, venues, and stages - from opening for Thee Oh Sees at the Empty Bottle in Chicago, playing at the renowned Memphis festival - Goner- fest, notorious Hozac Blackout Fest in Chicago, Oppikoppi in South Africa,?in-store shows at popular local hangouts like Bric-A-Brac, Permanent and Used Kids Records, basement shows, art exhibitions and even public access TV appearances like Chic-A-Go-Go. Frequently noted as one of South Africa’s most hard-working and prolific acts, it is no surprise that in 2016 alone they recorded and released both their 9th and 10th full-length studio albums. The 9th album “Try Me”, already available online and on CD, was also released on 12” limited edition vinyl through Columbus Ohio’s Heel Turn Records, and their 10th album “Dichotomy” was recently made available on BandCamp. They got awarded a Music Mobility Fund from Concerts SA and SAMRO to do an extensive local tour in April and they will be embarking on their 4th USA tour to promote their recent releases. Due to their astonishing work ethic, from producing and recording all their own albums, releasing on multi- ple formats (CD, tape, digital and vinyl) and touring vigorously both locally and internationally, it is no surprise that they are becoming known as being one of South Africa’s most beloved independent bands.

    MEMES

    Blah Blah Blah

    [engl] Memes is John Meme and Paul Meme - a laptop rock duo from Glasgow, formed in February 2019. "Nine months is what MEMES have taken to get together and release their first 7", " Blah Blah Blah ", whose vinyl will reach the buckets in less than a week through the French label Six Tonnes De Chair Records, happening everything so fast thanks also to Steve Lamacq on the BBC6, who praised the John and Paul hard work behind the eponymous single to the album, whose strategy is based on a saturated lo-fi that makes post-punk and garage go hand in hand before the strings end up taking the control in favour of the motivating rock, implanting also its lyrical message in 'Happy Shopper', which takes it to the Sleaford Mods ground while the instrumentation is approaching a Christmas dyed of BODEGA, getting noticed by the use of a megaphone with which they approach their lyrics to the people, causing the hips to not stop moving at any time, which well taken advantage of by 'Funny Man', means visiting the 70's, chanted by the 50's, generating a mosh whose limits are not yet defined."

    MT. MOUNTAIN

    Tassels

    [engl] Formed in 2012, the Perth quintet released a string of releases in their formative years, slowly setting themselves aside from the influx of Australian psychedelia through the combination of powerful live performances and genre-spanning sensibilities. Soon they were sharing stages with international heavyweights the likes of Sleep, Thee Oh Sees and Moon Duo. On their 2016 debut, Cosmos Terros, the quintet crystallised their aesthetic ambitions: an enchanting fusion of krautrock rhythms, sun-dappled guitars, haunting vocals and tectonic crescendos, brimming with equal parts menace and melody. The 2017 follow-up, Dust, unfolds like the score for a film yet unwritten, a long form musical homage to the landscapes of the Australia’s Western seaboard. Mt. Mountain would go on to perform Dust in full in concert halls and historic civic spaces, silhouetted by a carefully curated set of visuals depicting the diverse scenery from which the songs draw their inspiration. Golden Rise mark’s the band’s return to the traditional song format, but the powerful connection to landscapes remain. Each of the album’s 10 track feel rich with depth and space, even in the midst of crushing crescendos. It’s appropriate that it, along with Dust, emerged in a rural studio two hours form Perth, where country roads give ways to pastures. But the sublime green views are never far from the vast deserts. That juxtaposition of elements remains the constant throughout Mt. Mountain’s oeuvre, whether the sound emanating from the speakers is a bang or a whisper.

    PERILYMPH

    Deux

    [engl] Perilymph started a few years ago as a one man project led by Fabien de Menou, a french man living in Berlin. The first album was composed and recorded as such, Fabien recorded everything in his studio, except for the drums, which he asked his friend Fabian to record. As other friends joined in, the band was able to turn these songs into a live show. It's around this time that Fabien composed the songs for “Deux". Here, the process was a little different, and he was able to bounce ideas off everyone, and to try riffs and ideas as a band. The recording process was very similar to the first time though, with once again Fabian recording drums and Fabien taking care of the rest, as well as the production. This album is a step forward in the story of the band: moving from Fabien's bedroom songs into a band of friends.

    PINK ROOM

    HC45-2

    [engl] The moment has finally arrived, The new album from the Belgian rockers Pink Room is out. The album is called ‘Putain Royale’ and is out on ZOE ZOE RECORDS, ROCKERILL RECORDS & SIX TONNES DE CHAIR RECORDS. A while ago we got the first video and single from the track ‘Losing’ which was a gorgeous kick in the face and the first track after the intro (by Nathan Roche) and it is a perfect start on ‘Putain Royale’, heavy garageriffs and some wild psychedelic solo work at the end of the track. On ‘Losing’ Cis Deman (Stake) and Bart Baele (Tubelight, Speedozer) are guests. For ‘Stay White’ they change to a higher gear and go faster and wilder, a track filled with fast paced energy. By now everybody already understands that this album will be one intese chunk of energy. ‘Hail Satan’ may be the most accesible track, if you could call anything accesible on this album, the riff on ‘Hail Satan’ is catchy and the vocals screech their way into my brain. Tijl Van De Casteele from Whorses en Jonas Calu from Little Trouble Kids doig guest percussion on ‘Hail Satan’. Their is a clip coming for ‘Hail Satan’ and their will be a lot of fire in it which is cool because fire is cool. There is no time for a breather (on the whole album) or a break to drink a hot cup of cacao because ‘Live Laugh Love’ is again fast, loud, and like almost all of their tracks it is adrenaline boosting (is that a word? it is now?). ‘All Breaks No Gas’ I heard the first time when I was on my bike and I was so pumped I almost drove in to a canal. As I am an excellent reviewer it is also time to talk about the drums so that the drummer did not think I forgot about him, on the whole album Jelle does some excellent drumming and with all his hittin and smashin he takes care of the relentless tempo and on the next track ‘Colin’ he brings some nice vibe with his woody drumsticks. ‘Skin’ (with guest vocals from Sam De Clercq van Brorlab) and ‘The Most Underrated Piece of Art is Power’ are catchy rocknroll tracks (but then very heavy) . The last track ‘Stay Black’ is with guest vocals by Ruben from Vonnis and may be the most brutal track on the album, a track filled with punk and hardcore. The reason this album absolutely rules is because it is really fucking loud and heavy but at the same time it is catchy and fun. There is a perfect balance between noiserock and garagerock. I hate it when bands are superdark and really serious and Pink Room is the other way around, it is all about having a blast and that is what you hear throughout the whole album. Al the guest musicians on this album just make the whole shabang better, they give it an extra kick. This album feels like a destructive party, a party that ends in the gutter, broken and hurt but really happy.

    PLATINUM BOYS

    We Don't Dance

    [engl] PLATINUM BOYS are from the Rust Belt town of Milwaukee, WI, USA. At first they seem like they can’t possibly be serious about this whole “Rock n’ Roll” thing – that PLATINUM BOYS must be some kind of stoned inside joke taken to the unfortunate extreme of actually appearing in public. The first impression is that they exist for sick self-amusement or that they all lost some gross bet. But when they start playing and the full force of their brutish sound is cracked open, PLATINUM BOYS deliver a musical punch that’s no joke. Their paint-huffing, sweat-soaked garage matrimony of Thin Lizzy and the Buzzcocks summons the spirit of the past 50 years of Rock n’ Roll in a uniquely 21st Century American way. Their songs are tight, aggressively sped-out and they boil up from a sneering, self-aware sense of humor. PLATINUM BOYS might just be geniuses, but if they are, it’s the type of genius that leaves you brain damaged. (Rev.Norb)

    Ask me Later

    [engl] From the cradle to a 9-5 job, buried in unread emails and PMQ youtube alerts, tackling issues such as Question Time Bias and Workplace Etiquette. Public Body formed late 2018 with a clear aim to write the perfect soundtrack to whatever you do whilst procrastinating at your day job. 'Ask Me Later' “Labour-oppressive wellness initiatives; machinic lubricants. Half a century of unprocessed bitterness, constricted by social norms as corporate structures. The Program fails through successive firmware updates while, in the background, slideshow graphics show that rage tends towards infinity. The face of a destabilised workforce in a society that secretes symbolic concessions as a defence reflex against meaningful change. Your positive attitude is keeping us all in line.” Emil Mniszko ‘Table Manners’ "You are sitting in the lobby, a ghostly jingle drifts through the airwaves while a mute screen shows familiar suited men seated around a large circular table. The calendar says 2020, but that can’t be right. Memories of an information age fall away as the spectres of a forgotten future pass into you." Emil Mniszko

    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!“
