On the lighter side of loud, but lyrically impeccable, Tellison have been carving a melodic niche for themselves for a long while are certainly due their time in the sun. Maybe this is it? Hopefully. Continue reading “Track of the Week #6 – Tellison ‘Tact Is Dead’”
With the launch of several high profile hi-res music services, the debate surrounding 24-bit audio is spilling out of the realm of the audiophile into the mainstream. The argument surrounding whether or not people can hear the difference will smoulder until hell is blue and icy, but while it rages on it’s worth wondering whether the term quality is being pointed in the right direction. Continue reading “HD Quality Is Missing the Point”
Bristolian psych-metalers Turbowolf launched their new track yesterday over on Noisey, offering another taste of things to come on their second album ‘Two Hands’, due April 6th on Search and Destroy. Been a fan of the band’s fuzzed-out rhythmic style since their Big Cut EP, and it’s great to see they’re continuing to push it forward. The new track ‘Rich gift’ sees them delve into … Continue reading Track of the Week #5 – Turbowolf ‘Rich Gift’

Taken from their upcoming album ‘Restarter’ due Feb-23 on the ever reliable Relapse Records, ‘Minions’ is probably as chilled as it’s possible to be with this much drive, ideal for a Wednesday afternoon that’s looking far to far from Friday.

As a big fan of their debut, Summon the Faithless, this track’s already proving to be a good omen for what they have … Continue reading Track of the Week #3 – Lord Dying ‘A Wound Outside of Time’
OK, I’m a day late to the party and I didn’t even buy streamers, but it’s just come to my attention that ‘Smash’, The Offspring’s classic third album was 20 years old yesterday. Not particularly exciting new in itself, plenty of things happened 20 years ago [insert one of the thousands of Cobain tributes here]. But, for me, ‘Smash’ was the definitive album that took … Continue reading Offspring ‘Smash’ 20 Years Old (Yesterday).
It’s a good week for new music. When late last year progressive black metal wonders Altar of Plagues came to an end, it was a massive loss – ‘Teethed Glory and Injury’ was one of my top albums last year. It’s good, then, that songwriter, James Kelly, is back and ready to put out a new release with his solo act WIFE. It’s a sonic … Continue reading WIFE Ready for Debut Album
