Post-rockers Pianos Became The Teeth have recently signed to Epitaph Records where they will release their new album Keep You later this year and the band has released the albums first single “Repine.” I absolutely love this track and, well anything PBTT have ever done. Am I excited? Yes. Am I ready to hear this album? Yes. Should you pass up listening to “Repine?” No. Check out the track after the jump. Continue reading

Psychedelic drone/doom outfit Megaton Leviathan have premiered a new track from their forthcoming record, Past 21 Beyond The Arctic Cell, over at Invisible Oranges. The track is the sprawling 13 minute “Past 21″; a track that floats down a path of kaleidoscopic melodies and drug-induced atmospheres. Head over to Invisible Oranges to stream the behemoth now.
Past 21 Beyond The Arctic Cell will be released on September 9th via Seventh Rule Recordings. Pre-orders can be placed here.
A few weeks back Deafheaven were seen in live footage performing their new song “From The Kettle Onto The Coil” and now the band has released a studio version of the track. Of course, the track will be released for free as a part of Adult Swim’s Summer Singles on the 25th of this month, so look forward to that, but until then check out a full stream of the track after the jump.

Seattle’s post-metal/shoegaze hybrids He Whose Ox Is Gored have announced a string of West Coast tour dates that will commence in early August. The band will be touring in support of their forthcoming Rumours EP, which is due out later this year. The band is also working on their debut full length, though there is no word on when it will see the light of day just yet. You can check out the tour dates after the break and their past works on their Bandcamp Page.
A few months back I posted about a rad compilation featuring bands covering Misfits tracks. Well, the folk at CVLT Nation have come through again and have released a new compilation featuring covers of one of my all-time favorite bands: Joy Division. Some of the stand-out bands are Pinkish Black, Old Witch and Arctic Flowers, but that is only the tip of the iceberg. Check out a full stream of the compilation below. Continue reading
Camera Shy, which features Nick Bassett of Nothing and Whirr and Alexandra Morte of Whirr, released their debut EP Jack-O-Lantern last week and, as it ended up in my Junk Folder, I got to it late. This is by no means heavy whatsoever, but it is pretty hypnotizing. Simple guitar and vocals in a nice, smooth indie pop style. If you think this is up your alley, check it out after the jump. I’m enjoying the release and I regret not finding it sooner. Leave your thoughts in the comments section. Continue reading
Texas instrumental rockers have premiered a new track from their forthcoming album, Another Language, over at Tiny Mix Tapes. The new track is the sprawling and absolutely gorgeous six minute stunner “Dustism”, which will stay with you long after it draws to a close. Head over to Tiny Mix Tapes to check it out now.
Another Language will be released on September 16th via Suicide Squeeze.
Instrumental music can be somewhat challenging to make. Music that is devoid of vocals usually needs to be multi-faceted and grandiose in order to keep some listeners’ attentions. Luckily, it is not too difficult to find good instrumental-only acts. Whether it be on the more rock side of the spectrum (Explosions in the Sky, Tortoise, etc) or the more metallic side (Russian Circles, Pelican, etc), solid instrumental music exists in all different forms. But, just like everything else in life, a breath of fresh air is needed. That is where the Arizona’s Tempel come in. Though the duo of Ryan Wenzel and Rich Corle have been collaborating since 2003, it is not until this year that we see the full product of their efforts. Their 53 minute debut album, On the Steps of the Temple, is a metallic marvel and gives a lot of their contemporaries a run for their money.
†††, aka Crosses are a strange band that has been praised on this site for a good while now. The project released their debut LP earlier this year and have since released a few music videos, the latest of which is for the track “Telepathy.” I really like the track and this video is… Well, it’s fucking weird. I’m sure to Chino, this means something very deep, but much like System Of A Down lyrics, it is almost unintelligible to me. Regardless, check out the video after the jump. Continue reading
Earlier this month The Atlas Moth gave us the first track from their forthcoming record The Old Believer and now the band has issued another new beast. This track is called “Sacred Vine” and it is beautiful, moving and an all around amazing track. Of course, what the hell would you expect from The Atlas Moth other than perfection? Check out the track over on AltPress right now. Seriously. Do it. The Old Believer is out June 10th via Profound Lore Records.
House favorites So Hideous have announced a string of summer dates with I Am Heresy courtesy of Metal Injection. As both of these bands have distinctly different sounds, these shows should be pretty amazing. One band produces some of the most mesmerizing blackendpostgaze and the other is a furious metalcore act, so yeah, you need to see at least of these shows. Continue reading
Rosetta, a band that is a favorite of myself and Lane, have announced that work is almost complete on their new EP Flies To Flame. I don’t know about those of you who aren’t fans of Rosetta or how you could deny the awesomeness of their post-rock mastery (which was well documented during Post-Rockgust), but I am beyond excited about the prospect of getting new Rosetta material. You can check out a statement from the band after the jump as well as listen to the bands 2013 LP The Anaesthete, which is still available for free download. Continue reading
The fantastic Nothing released a phenomenal album titled Guilty Of Everything last month and the band has now released a new track in commemoration of Record Store Day. This track is a cover of Low‘s “In Metal.” It’s haunting, it’s dark and it’s beautiful. Check out the cover below as well as the original. If you haven’t yet, I highly suggest picking up Nothing‘s new album Guilty Of Everything, out now on Relapse Records. Continue reading
Kreig are a band that has evolved and expanded its sound many times since the Battlegod demo was released in 1996. The band has always captured my attention and I have always admired them. That’s why I got so excited when I found out that CVLT Nation was streaming the two tracks that will be available on the bands Record Store Day 7″ Isolation/Transmission. I mean, it’s Kreig! The band has transmuted itself to play a form of blackened post-rock on this release and it’s utterly phenomenal. Continue reading
