Detroit noise rockers Beige Eagle Boys have premiered their cover of the Don Henley track “Dirty Laundry” over at A.V. Club. The band take the 80′s hit and pump it full of dirt, grit, grime and soak it in massive amounts of distortion. Is it better than the original? Do you even have to ask? Head over to the A.V. Club to stream it now.
The cover will be featured on the group’s forthcoming self-titled debut, which is due out on June 24th via Reptilian Records.

It baffles my tiny, insignificant mind that 2014 has completed half of its cycle of torment and despair. Luckily a plethora of good music graced my ears and gave me the strength to make it through another six months of life. The following 10 releases have stuck with me the most during the past six months and keep me hyped for the quality that I assume will grace the remainder of the year. In no particular order, these are my favorite releases of the year so far.
After two successful reunion shows last year, it looks like Daughters are in the process of writing new material. A recent picture (as seen above) was posted on the band’s Facebook page with the caption “Day 1″. If they are indeed working on a new album, it will be the first set of new material since 2010′s self-titled affair. Be on the look out for more updates as they become available.
Portland’s sludgy noise rockers Drunk Dad have unleashed a new track from their forthcoming album, Ripper Killer, over at Revolver. The track is entitled “Life’s Work” and starts off with some Melvins’-esque sludgy grooves before launching into a scathing assault of noise-infused hardcore. Head over to Revolver to check it out.
Ripper Killer will be released on July 1st via Eolian Empire. Pre-orders can be placed here.
The Great Sabatini, whom we adore here on AA, have released an amazing new album titled Dog Years and to follow it up, the band has released a new music video.

I promise you that it will tickle your fancy parts. Continue reading
Earlier this week (June 2) Montreal, QC noisy sludge warriors The Great Sabatini dropped their latest album, Dog Years. The follow-up record to 2012′s stellar Matterhorn, and accompanying EP The Royal We, sees the band further honing their chaotic, diverse sound that seethes elements of doom, grind and crushing ’70s-style rock. In this recent interview with American Aftermath, guitarist/vocalist Sean Sabatini discussed Dog Years, their unique “swamp trench arithmetic” sound, as well as their musical influences, unusual album art and more.

But if you cannot wait much longer, and I know most can’t, feel free to stream the 10 track beast at Pitchfork now.
The phrase “hirn fein hacken” translates from German to “get your brain chopped into pieces”. When a band names an album something of that caliber, they have a lot to live up to. Thankfully, the Austrian racket-makers Bulbul do just that. In the six-year gap between their last album, the eccentric trio have crafted a collection of 10 multi-faceted jams that are bursting with creativity and mild-schizophrenia. Hirn Fein Hacken is a gleefully weird, colorful and erratic album that defies categorization and places Bulbul at the forefront of all things weird.
The Great Sabatini have premiered their forthcoming album, Dog Years, over at Decibel. If you like your sludge metal deep-fried in Amphetamine Reptile noise rock, then Dog Years is the album for you. The album will be officially released on June 2nd via Solar Flare Records. Pre-orders can still be obtained here or here. Head over to Decibel to stream the album now.
The band’s remaining North American tour dates can be found below.
Doom and sludge metal, like all genres of heavy music at one point or another, can start to become one-dimensional. Some bands tend to be a culmination of Black Sabbathian chord progressions, fuzz-ridden grooves, and occult and bong-praising lyricism. These are not necessarily bad things, but they do leave something to be desired in some people. Luckily for those who want their doom to be more forward thinking, there happens to be a myriad of bands who strive for just that. One of which is New York’s HUSH. The band is still in its neonatal stages, but is destined for greater things as they grow. Their debut full length, Unexist, can attest to that statement. Unexist is HUSH.’s first big step into the fray and it makes quite the tremendous first impression.
