British post-prog act Milk White Throat, whom I have featured here on the site a few times, have been working on new material lately and it appears that it is coming to light. The band has released a new music video which is for a new track titled “Under Duress.” The song is great, like all MWT songs are and the video is really rad. For a performance video, it is definitely one of my favorites I’ve seen in a while. Check out “Under Duress” below. Continue reading
Australian post-blackened doom wreckers Hope Drone are zeroing in on their new record Cloak Of Ash and the band has unloaded a new track titled “The Chords Thrum Beneath The Earth.” This track might be my favorite I’ve heard off of the record so far and it’s really, really sick. Everything Hope Drone does is spectacular, this is what makes them one of my favorite bands right now. Stream “The Chords Thrum Beneath The Earth” below. Continue reading
Massachusetts-based post-rock sextet Caspian have announced the release of their new full-length record and follow-up to 2012’s Waking Season. The new Matt Bayles-produced offering will bear the title Dust and Disquiet and will be released on September 25 via Triple Crown Records. The album’s artwork and track listing can be found after the break.
In support of the record’s release, the band will be embarking on a Fall North American headlining tour. Experimental screamo outfit Circle Takes the Square will provide support on most dates of the trek. Those dates can be found after the break.
Finally, Noisey premiered the first single from Dust and Disquiet, “Sad Heart of Mine”. That track can be streamed after the break as well.
Nathan Gray might not be a household name, but he has a strong background in music. I know the dude from Boysetsfire and a bit from his work with I Am Heresy. He has taken on a solo career and his music is just wonderful. I don’t often quote from the press releases I get, but this one I have to. Nathan‘s music on his debut EP NTHN GRY is described as “Satanic post-industrial pop” and that is spot-on. It’s so odd, but it is mesmerizing. I love it. Check out the first track off of the EP below. The track is titled “Wolves” and it’s a great introduction to the “card-carrying Satanist” Nathan‘s sound. Continue reading
Philadelphian post-metal astronauts Rosetta have released their fifth full-length album and follow-up to 2013’s The Anaesthete, Quintessential Ephemera, with a “name your price” download option over on their Bandcamp. Those seeking the physical formats can find them at Golden Antenna, Init Records and War Crime Recordings. This expansive and emotive release will more than likely appear on many “Best Of” lists this year. Stream and download the interstellar opus for yourself after the break.
Man, I can’t wait for the Relapse debut from Hope Drone. I absolutely love this band and I am so happy that they got a shot at Relapse to gain a name for themselves. Not that the band was nobody before. They just have a much greater reach with a good label behind them. Not to mention the band have crafted such wonderfully bleak music over the years and it seems as if Cloak Of Ash will be no different. Check out the bands latest offering “Riverbeds Hewn In Marrow” below. It’s superb. Muah. Continue reading
Man, I’ve been waiting for this for a while. Vattnet Viskar today released their new album Settler and if you haven’t heard it, the album is now available to stream. I’ve listened to this album numerous times today and I will listen to it over and over until I can’t anymore. Vattnet are seriously a vicious band and their blackened post doom is siiiiick. Enjoy Settler below. Continue reading
Shit, I love Team Sleep. This collective released some amazing music and then not much for a while. Luckily for all of us who love and miss the band, we are getting some new Team Sleep! The band has released a re-recorded version of their song “Blvd. Nights” which you can hear after the jump. The song sounds as great as ever and I cannot wait to hear more. BRING IT ON! Continue reading
Montréal-based post-rock quartet C H R I S T have premiered their debut full-length record, T O W E R, over at Noisey. The record is available now via L’oeil Du Tigre and can be purchased here and here. The album delivers four sprawling, expansive pieces that pushes the boundaries of what is expected of bands that are labelled “post-rock”. The compositions are beautifully melancholic one moment and sinister the next. It will definitely lull you into a trance-like state if you are not careful. Listen for yourself after the break.
I think it was Gandhi who said “any Rosetta is good Rosetta.”
Okay. Maybe that was me, but it stands to reason, does it not? I am always pleased to get new Rosetta, as they are a house favorite band around these parts. The band also has been on a kick of releasing their albums for “Pay-what-you-want,” which is also a great thing. This is to be said for the bands forthcoming album Quintessential Ephemera and I can tell you right now that this album will destroy you. Check out a new track titled “Untitled I” after the jump. Oh, so good. Continue reading
