Shooting Guns – No Fans (VIDEO)

In a video that mixes 80′s Public Access vibes (The Crystal Ball Hour!) the new video for Canadian doom/noise/heavy psychers Shooting Guns finds the band awash in VHS-quality “satanic sex scandal” news footage and terribly-great drifting visual effects all while the trio perform “No Fans”- a song that hands down fucking rules. Order the band’s 2013 LP,...

Dial Doomsquad

Toronto trio Doomsquad have a been a favorite of ours since their lovely three-song EP came out of nowhere late last year- their set-closing seven-minute cover of Doors’ “Riders of the Storm” is a gem- and now, with a brief lull, the band are set to release their debut longplayer, Kalaboogie for Hand Drawn Dracula (Beliefs, Dream Affair).Today the band...

Seeing Bay Area Black Metal gazers Deafheaven on these pages should be no surprise- we’ve been absolutely in love with the quintet since we first heard them on 2011′s Roads to Judah and with their 2013 effort Sunbather to go off, it’s no wonder they’ve keep graduating to larger and larger rooms; the symphony needs...

CAVE Return With “Threace”

Columbia, Missouri quartet CAVE follow 2011′s Neverendless with a new five song, half-jam-along dubbed Threace, which, according to the video tease above, will no doubt drip with rolling krautrock, freeform wave jams and thick and smoky drug-backed heavy psychers. Threace drops October 15th via Drag City - better light up.
