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...

Last week The Echoplex hosted a pair of English production acts in Mount Kimbie (Dominic Maker and Kai Campos) and the noctural sway of Holy Other. Sold out and stellar. Photos below. Holy Other’s lovely debut, Held, dropped last year via Tri-Angle. Pick it up here. Mount Kimbie’s sophomore album, Cold Spring Fault Less Youth was...
Hardcore DEVO

Not long ago we posted on a small SF revivalist label called Superior Viaduct for their first-ever reissue of Suicide founder/instrumentalist Martin Rev‘s debut S/T solo album, well, that label is again poking our attention with an upcoming vinyl issue of material from another- and subsequently more lucrative- electronic pioneering act- DEVO. Comprised of early four track and demo recordings made by...

VIDEO: Urban Homes – “Ayran Gifbek Mersi”

Started in 2008, Cologne’s Urban Homes started as “almost exclusively a post-punk outfit.” Cutting their teeth playing ranks in punk and hardcore acts of the Rhine region for a decade plus, these four members do something notably different on Centres, their sprawling, five-song debut proper under the Urban Homes moniker. Released for the German Altin Village & Mine imprint...

Pueblo People's First Four Moons

Pueblo People’s First Four Moons

  I love the Bandcamp stumble! Pueblo People are a trio of players from Italy that recently self-released their debut, The First Four Moons for free via the service. Aptly described by the band as “Guitar music from the 60s vs. guitar music from the 90s,” Pueblo People blend the jangle, the rabbit role reverb psych...

A fantastic bill from start to finish, last weekend’s Part Time Punks brought in LA shoegazing post punks, Flaamingos (keep an eye out for these boys as they’re set to release their debut via NY imprint Felte), favorite locals Cold Showers for their first LA-area show in five months (new stuff sounds great) and dark...

Last night, Chicago punks The Orwells headlined a Blundertown presented show alongside CA fun-havers Pangea and The Shrills and longhaired riff-rollers Zig Zags at The Unit B Skatepark in Santa Ana. I headed down with a pocket camera and had some fun. The Orwells will hit the East coast by early March and then continue down...

The video follows Maiovvi (that’s him up there) around as he tracks people- err victims- down and gets a little, uh, physical. A little...

We’re Sorry: Wax Idols, The People’s Temple and BELIEFS

Every year around this time, I lament. It’s not what you think- it’s not the whole year-changing thing, the holidays or my family’s bickering but rather for all the music I missed over the last few months- I was traveling, editing, working on lists or just plain sleeping instead of focusing on the fancy new...
