Agathocles/Unholy Grave Split

Sick split in which Agathocles covers Unholy Grave songs and vice versa.

some kind of cadwallader

this band certainly is a guilty pleasure of mine. Emo(more like emo in the vein of cap'n jazz then anything) band from philly. Some nice indieish melodies combined with annoying wails.

Colour Haze

A friend introduced me to this band very recently and I must say I'm incredibly impressed. German psychedelic/stoner rock done right.

"Initially, the band seemed to be strongly influenced by the sounds of Black Sabbath - perhaps most notably in their 1999 album, titled Periscope. This style later evolved into an unmistakably dry, bass-laden soundscape. Characteristic of this phase is Kogleks’ continual guitar playing between trance-like bass rhythms. The albums Ewige Blumenkraft and Los Sounds De Krauts allowed the band to further develop this style with longer, more complex song structures, and increasingly strong jam and jazz elements."

*edit: Album linked is All.


I first heard of these guys on a split with Boris (those guys never cease to amaze me) and I thought they were pretty neat. Here's their full-length and it's some really chilled out downtempo stuff with a bit of jazz in the mix. Incredibly relaxing.

The Stalin

Good ol' 80s Japanese punk band.


Hardcore punk from Sweden and one of my favourite new bands. Great fun to listen to and straight-to-the-point, much like how I'm trying to keep this post.

Super Numeri

Listening to music in the wee hours of the morning is an old habit of mine and I have now found the perfect music for exactly that purpose. I present to you SUPER NUMERI, a UK based band who play a great blend of post-rock, jazz fusion, oriental, downtempo, psychedelic and a bunch of other styles. It's really very interesting so do listen.

warpaint- exquisite corpse

Indie/post-rock/shoegaze/psychedelic all girl-band. I don't think any description I can come up with will do this record justice. Listen and make your own judgements.

Rat King

I love concept albums, especially when they are done right. Larva is the second effort of the unconventional Rat King, who are (or should be) noted for their brilliant avant-garde industrialism. Their music can best be described as a mix of dark ambient, noise and industrial. Compared to their debut, Larva comes across as mightily ambitious and the scope of the album is lushly varied. The concept behind the album the effect of a man's dreams on his being; a difficult concept to play out without any visuals or vocals. Be that as it may, the key word here is atmosphere and there is a truckload of that. The great thing is that there's no "terror" overkill (i.e. Rat King don't try to be overly terrifying with their music). Even with varying from cavernous percussion to lush orchestration to occasional airy interludes of swirling ambience and stabbing discordance, Larva flows absolutely seamlessly.
Songs are untagged so here's the tracklist:

01 - Egg
02 - Hour Of The World
03 - The Duel
04 - The Wake
05 - Spiracle
06 - For Absent Gods
07 - Tranquility Lane
08 - Smorgasbord
09 - Vapour
