Bavarian Fire Drill - British Space Programme (Milgram Records - ambient synth)





A new Bavarian Fire Drill EP. More ambient synth gurgle. Loosely based around the history of the British Space Programme. An interesting short piece about that is here - http://lapsedhistorian.com/an-empire-of-stars/.

Personal Best - The Lovin' EP





90s indie rock/tuneful punk stuff. Kind of that Superchunk/Wrens thing. Been listening to this loads since i saw them a few months back. Really good stuff. Finally available digitally. Well worth your cash.

The Good Wife - Love Songs





Thankfully The Good Wife managed to tolerate each other's company in the studio long enough to make an album before they split. It's sleazy noise rock stuff along the lines of Pissed Jeans, Jesus Lizard and Cows etc. They did a great 7" on Super Fi records. No vinyl for this jsut a free download on bandcamp

Remote - Starving Blaze And Hollow Shades





Coalesce meets Deathspell Omega?

Absolute savagery. Nasty noisey chatoic metallic hardcore stuff. Glorious stuff.

Impureza - EP 2013





A fusion of flamenco and 'brutal' tech death metal. o_O

Red Death - 2014 demo





Crossover-tastic.

Might be slightly more on the hardcore side as some of the riffs remind me something like Knife Fight. Still plenty of wailing guitar solos and thrashing and moshing though.

Definitely kind of Power Trip quality rather than that post-Municipal Waste trend.

Sithu Aye - Pulse





"Happy progressive metal" is the self description. It's awesome instrumental tech widdle stuff done by a physics student in his bedroom. Seriously, when people moan about how easy access to home recording has made music worse show them this. Then punch them in the face. Metaphorically of course. Violence isn't very happy or progressive. Maybe make widdly guitar hand gestures at them provocatively.

Pile - Special Snowflakes





Previously I've gone on about how good that Pile album was. Thankfully they've finally got a new thing coming out. Just a 7" but judging by this song it's going to be a corker.
