ALL BEES TO THE SEA

Band:TAINT
Album:ALL BEES TO THE SEA
Label:Destructure
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Metal

Taint have continued to forge their unique and enigmatic brand of heavy rock, since their 1994 inception in South Wales. Their debut full length ‘The Ruin Of Nova Roma’ (2005) and follow up ‘Secrets And Lies’ (2007) on Lee Dorian’s Rise Above records established them as fully paid contenders in the broader spectrum of heavy weight bands. Cutting their teeth in the early ‘90s d.i.y scene, Taint have retained their hardcore pugnacity while exploring more progressive avenues, thanks to their childhood influences of all things classic
rock. The South Wales power-trio have infultrated every other corner of the UK/EU, with headlining tours reaching as far as Scandinavia, Portugal, Macedonia, Greece and everywhere in between. Continuing to hone their craft has paid off, seeing them honour prestigious invitations to play the Hellfest, SWR, Roadburn and Damnation Festivals. Outings with Maryland's forefathers of groove Clutch, and a personally invited support to Oakland legends of heavy Neurosis has put them in ideal company, and furthered their vision to those lucky
and chosen few. With ‘All Bees To The Sea’ Taint happed upped their ante again, with four barnstorming classics. Culminating with the 12-minute title track, and the electricly charged live set from Taint’s Roadburn 2008 festival, you’ll agree that this release will stand alone in it’s own right. 

“America may have given us Clutch, Mastodon and Baroness, but in Taint we have a band to fight Britain’s own corner with ease.” 9 out of 10 – Rock Sound Magazine

MATADOR

Band:ARMS AND SLEEPERS
Album:MATADOR
Label:Expect Candy
Format:CD
Genre:Dance/Electronica

Arms and Sleepers are a duo of comprised of Max Lewis (Boston, MA) and Mirza Ramic (Portland, ME). Formed in 2006, they have produced multiple albums, EPs and hand-made releases, most notably the well-received Black Paris 86 (Expect Candy, 2008). Following an intense touring schedule in 2008 and 2009 that included appearances in the UK, Europe, and North America and saw the band opening for the likes of Asobi Seksu, The Books, Her Space Holiday, Cass McCombs, Lymbyc Systym, This Will Destroy You and Caspian, Max and Mirza took a break to focus on a new proper full-length in the summer of 2009. Matador finds the duo expanding on their sound, reaching for a new and fresh direction. Vocals are more prominent throughout the album than with previous releases, and the band ventures into new soundscapes, incorporating an expansive array of instruments. The result is a cinematic and hypnagogic mix of rusts, antique grays and olive greens which evoke an eerie nostalgia - memories of places you’ve never been and things you’ve never seen. For fans of Boards of Canada, Slowdive, Epic45, Portishead, Ulrich Schnauss, Uzi and Ari.

 

 

SEDATIVES

Band:SEDATIVES
Album:SEDATIVES
Label:Deranged
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Punk / Hardcore

After a solid debut 7'' fix last year, Canada's four-piece SEDATIVES throw these 11 ounces of Punkrock smack into the filthy gutters and back alleys of the record junkie underworld. Featuring members of Buried Inside, Last Communion, White Wires, and the Million Dollar Marxists, the SEDATIVES do it dark, desperate, and minimal. An archaic sound from the gothic ages of punk...when punk was catchy, but also dangerous. Going back to the three chord song, with downstrokes, vicious energy, and the two minute deadline. Sacred by the organ, it's night church in the post apocalyptic wasteland. The fierce ''Cannot calm down'' and ''Superstitious minds'' are already known from the first 7'' and were now rerecorded with Skottie of THE CREEPS providing guest vocals, as well as Rob of the STATUES singing on the Überhit ''Slip away'', while new songs like the looming ''Backlash'', ''Catastrophe'', ''No Time'' or ''Hollow in the heart'' show that the band is up for more.

THE POSITIVES

Band:PERSON L
Album:THE POSITIVES
Label:SCYLLA
Format:CD
Genre:Alt Rock

The Positives, which was deeply influenced by classic rock, allows the musicians’’ interests and obsessions with artists like Bob Dylan, James Brown, Curtis Mayfield and Sam Cook to shine through their songwriting and playing. “Goodness Gracious” is a raw, static-laced rocker that sounds straight out of the vaults while “The Pleasure Is All Mine” is boisterous and bluesy, a dead ringer for a song from a much earlier decade. Even Vasoli’s voice, as he sings and yelps and howls, is barely recognizable from the croon of his former band.

The 12 songs on the album explore these simple ideas with complex, layered instrumentation and Vasoli’s thoughtful, genuine lyrics. “Stay Calm,” a deliberate, slow-paced track that recalls Radiohead, represents, for Vasoli, the struggle between positivity and self-doubt. It opens doors to new fans who may be unfamiliar with Vasoli’s previous work while allowing longtime fans a chance to watch one of their favorite musicians grow and change into a more complicated, talented artist. But in the end, the most important thing this record reveals, is Person L’s passion for the music they make.

BE YOURSELF

Band:THE ENCIEROO
Album:BE YOURSELF
Label:PLATFORM / WHIMSICAL
Format:CD SINGLE
Genre:Alt Rock

Few great indie rock bands are built without an enthralling story to boot. The Encierro (acronym N*C*R*O), a five piece from Stirling, Scotland are no exception. Since their impressive start in 2003 where they excelled and won the esteemed Stella Artois Battle of the Bands (astonishingly within four weeks of forming, a feat not at the grasp of many) they have crafted themselves an extraordinary tale of talented music, rapid success and sold out shows. Now, The Encierro are ready to unveil their superb first official mini EP Be Yourself, a single likely to further catapult the group.

The Encierro’s new EP really is as accomplished a debut single as a band is likely to put out, with a level of musical maturity that really shines through. The band’s progress from past tracks such as ‘The Girls Only Go Where The Coke Is’ and ‘Broken Record’ may be attributable to settling on a line up that truly works for them, and the result is an EP that really excels. The quality of the two B-sides accompanying Be Yourself are a joy to behold in an age where the radio edit remix has taken over from the days where bands showcased unreleased material on their singles. Here The Encierro pull out all the stops. The production on the title track Be yourself is homely, merging the electric and acoustic sides of the song seamlessly. The song drifts dreamily through the chorus, with the acoustic structure complimenting Souey’s vocals perfectly leading to a strong riff driven chorus. As it develops, the track builds to a potent, percussion filled, slick guitar licked ending. An almost R.E.M. style track in its beauty and composition, with slightly more of a Britpop undertone. There is also an unnerving quality about both the B-sides on this single, quality not usually seen on a debut EP. The first being a Manic Street Preacher-esque style rock track titled Esconde Mi Mente. An instantly catchy tune that coupled with the subtle maracas and the exquisite jangly flamenco guitar riff, gives this powerful song an intriguing Spanish twist. The second track is an equally well written if altogether more direct style indie track. Things Get Better! has a glorious electric guitar riff reminiscent of groups like The Kooks or The View. The strained vocals of Souey give the track a rough quality rarely heard since The Strokes and the tight percussion of John Liddell gives the song an upbeat air that has you moving uncontrollab

Band:SIDEWAYTOWN
Album:YEARS IN THE WALL
Label:VIVA HATE
Format:CD
Genre:Alt Rock

For more than 15 years Markus Baltes is going through the bottomless depths of deep emotional music with the help of different musical projects. Keen on experimenting someone might say, on the contrary it’s hitting more the root of the matter, when you call him a restless seeker for a deep insight – or just a glimpse of inspiration. It all began with the dark and mystical metal of his first band Paragon of beauty, but only with his second project Autumnblaze the essential creative work of Markus B. came into life, because he wrote all music and lyrics from then on. On each Autumnblaze record he’s turning to a new musical style – from grim and dreary metal, claustrophobic trip rock, melancholic pop ballads, Radiohead meets The Cure experimental rock to modern post rock. Now Sidewaytown comes and Markus Baltes is stiring towards a new unexplored haven. His passion for movies and certain sorts of film scores inflamed the idea for this visual, song-oriented post rock project – that’s the main source for Sidewaytown.

CEREMONY - BUDDA MEET ROCK

Band:PEOPLE
Album:CEREMONY - BUDDA MEET ROCK
Label:PHOENIX
Format:CD
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

Nobody’s sure if the muscians on this recording ever performed as a group or whether Ceremony was simply a studio super project. Certainly guitarist Kimio Mizutani had already enjoyed a certain amount of crticial exposure following stints with Love Live Life + One and Masahiko Satoh’s Sound Brakers and it is Satoh’s jazzy fuzz guitar licks that help to lift this album to a higher level. Unfortunately this was the ensemble’s only album, but the concept work, Ceremony – Buddha Meets Rock, is an absolute classic. As the title suggests, this 1971 recording was an attempt to fuse Buddhist-influenced spiritual vibe into an innovative oriental form form of hypnotic psychedelic prog rock. . All in all a rather weird record but the sound is mindblowing – experimental and trippy, but never too free or over the top, and at times a more traditional Japanese style of music lurks in the background. A monumental album that’s never going to go out of style. • Numbered limited edition – 1000 copies only • No.16 on Julian Cope’s list of top Japanese albums • Unique LP-replica card wallet • Digitally remastered.

 

 

NIHONJIN

Band:FAR OUT
Album:NIHONJIN
Label:PHOENIX
Format:CD
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

Prior to metamorphosing into Far East Family Band, Far Out released this sole, spacey, guitar-drenched psychedelic prog album in 1971. Although the Floyd influences are highly apparent, the band produces an original sound which defines its own unique identity rather than being a reflection of the British and American bands that were dominating the genre. Although there isw a keyboard-dominated opening, synthesisers are relegated to a supporting role, and thire sparse presence is restricted to occasional sound effects. The psychedelic ambiance comes largely from the guitars, electric sitars and intelligent percussion. The original album contained just two single-side tracks, and the intense guitar soloing, fantastic sound effects including gongs and howling wind drones combine to create and album of sparse beauty which effortlessly merges exotic Asian instrumentals with a psych sound occasionally reminiscent of Saucerful Of Secrets. • Numbered limited edition – 1000 copies only • No.11 on Julian Cope’s list of top Japanese albums • Unique LP-replica card wallet • Digitally remastered.

The Analyst has done extensive touring with likes of Knights of the Abyss, Arise and Ruin, Salt the Wound, Waking the Cadaver among others. Early 2010 will see the release of a digital EP via Innerstrength Records followed by touring to support it. Pastepunk.com - Midwest metal act The Analyst are worthy stand-ins to fill the shoes of their erratic northern neighbors The Black Dahlia Murder. For fans of The Black Dalhia Murder, All Shall Perish, and Suicide Silence.

 

 

RECESSION PROOF

Band:STEPH FRASER
Album:RECESSION PROOF
Label:Sonic Vista Music
Format:CD EP
Genre:Alt Rock

The UK's next major breakthrough star Steph Fraser releases her stunning new hit single 'Recession Proof' on November 2nd on the Sonic Vista Music label. Following the critical acclaim of her first 2 singles 'Purple Sun' and 'Pretend', Fraser makes a substantial claim for the top UK singer/songwriter spot with this topical uptempo self penned tune. "Sub Prime loans take me through the roof, but i'm telling you baby that i'm recession proof" is the glorious hook with a cute but eminently hummable melody.

The single is also bundled with new songs Roading and The Bird Song. Roading has been a firm live favourite in 2009 and really warrants a double A side billing as it's a really catchy road movie type of song that makes an instant impression and stands up to repeated play. Written by Steph's musical partner Phil Simpson, Roading is a made-up word. 'Please pull over if that's the speed you prefer' is quite an apt line from the song as Fraser is heading speedily into the limelight. The Bird Song was recently chosen by Tom Robinson for his BBC 6 Music introducing programme following strong support from BBC local radio in Lancashire, Merseyside, Humberside, Manchester and Leeds. The 3 songs featured on the single are a good representation of just how far this young starlet has come in just 18 months, gaining international experience with a tour of Canada and several music industry showcase performances along the way

 

 

APOCALYPSE IN RETROSPECT

Band:
Album:APOCALYPSE IN RETROSPECT
Label:DARK STAR
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

In 1995 when drummer, Shawn Johnson and Guitarist Ryan Buck decided that they’d rule the world with a unique brand of metal seldom or not seen at that time. Their armament? A band called Inspiteofyou. Needless to say that the whole world domination bit did not come to fruition exactly (nor, in retrospect would they have wanted it to – too much maintenance; leaving little or no time to rock) and there have been many anomalous, shocking, thrilling and lamentable moments that have brought these two friends to the year 2007. With the inevitable coming of some auspicious personnel changes, in mid-2007 the band took a rare opportunity to recharge, refresh and continue to hone in on what makes them unique both musically and visually and welcomed new “blood” (pun intended) to the fold. With the addition of the ultra-charismatic Tim Dumpiere on guitar and the inspired madness of Tony Greinke (ex-Down Lo, Concussion) on lead vocals joining the existing ranks of Shawn Johnson on drums, Ryan Buck supplying guitar/vocals and Wolf (ex-Withdrawal, Deacon, Inspiteofyou) on bass, BLOODSTREAM PARADE have been successfully creating new material inspired by the fervor of their impetuous youth. Focusing on writing engaging, aggressive and remarkable music coupled with lyrical content that borders more on the psychological and the esthetically metaphorical than the typical angst or anger-ridden prose of your standard metal band, BLOODSTREAM PARADE compels the listener to think, feel and get metal with thy neighbor.

 

 

THE ISOLATION GAME

Band:DISARMONIA MUNDI
Album:THE ISOLATION GAME
Label:CORONER
Format:CD
Genre:Death Metal

It all started around the year 2000 when Ettore with a bunch of friends/musicians composed and recorded into his own home-studio the first self-produced opus entitled “Nebularium”: a brilliant piece of progressive and atmospheric extreme music. The record received an amazing feedback and allowed the band to sign a contract for the worldwide distribution of the next two albums. While working on the new album the band almost lost all of its components and joined forces with Claudio and got in contact with Speed from Soilwork to have him as a guest on the new record. The year 2004 finally saw the release of the long anticipated second studio album entitled “Fragments Of D-Generation”: no more progressive atmospheres, but a faster and more energetic musical vibe with a huge injection of melody and a more twisted and aggressive vocal/lyrical approach. Being a worldwide success the record helped the band to enlarge their fan base and granted them their own place in the crowded melodic extreme metal scene. The year after Mirco left the band, but new songs were already coming out Ettore’s hat and the third record (“Mind Tricks” - 2006) showed that the renewed creative identity built by Ettore and Claudio was stronger than ever and far from being exhausted: a darker and heavier sound featuring multiple vocal layers by both Claudio and Ettore (with Speed collaborating again as a guest on some parts of the new songs) made this record their best release so far. And finally year 2009: Ettore and Claudio are once again working together to properly complete the songs that will be featured on the fourth Disarmonia Mundi record entitled “The Isolation Game”. Before the unleashing of the new full-length album a re-issue of the first album “Nebularium” sees the light via Coroner Records featuring a brand new artwork and an additional cd of previously unreleased tracks entitled “The Restless Memoirs”. Winter 2009: finally “The Isolation Game” is unleashed worldwide. The album sounds like the heaviest thing the band has recorded up to date: a perfect combination of brutal aggression, classical guitar melodies, extreme vocals and catchy choruses. Some of the songs also feature guest appearances by Björn “Speed” Strid (Soilwork) on vocals and Olof Mörck (Nightrage) on solos.

DISQUE D`OR

Band:VIVE LA FETE
Album:DISQUE D`OR
Label:le son du maquis
Format:CD
Genre:Alt Rock

Born in 1997 from the true love between Danny Mommens, then bassist for the cult band dEUS, and the blond supermodel Els Pynoo, Vive la fête fathered quite an unique and spectacular genre of music: A zest of new wave crawling between intoxicating electro loops, and all of this, delivered in the language of Gainsbourg, Dutronc and France Gall. A genuine tribute to Jacques Tati’s “Jour de fête”, Vive la fête musical boldness succeeded once again, with Disque d’or, into creating a glamorous and surrealist effort. An effort that the band never hesitate to defend thanks to their mind blowing lives, from Bruges, to Sao Paulo, but also New York, Moscow, Paris, Milan, Berlin and Tokyo.

"Hailing from Belgium, Vive la Fête is the most stylish musical duo since Serge Gainsbourg & Jane Birkin or Debbie Harry & Chris Stein; and they have a perfect electro-sound (they call it Kitsch pop) that makes you feel and look good…. Their record is excellent and their live act even better." V Magazine

"Fronted by knockout blonde Els Pynoo and music man Danny Mommens- this fusion of electro with a dab of punk rock oozes charm and glamour, think Blondie, think Brigitte Bardot, think Jane Birkin to stompin’ songs" Spill Magazine UK
