UK doom blues duo Noisepicker are poised to release their catchy yet throttling debut, Peace Off, tomorrow, May 11, via Exile on Mainstream. Comprised of guitarist and vocalist Harry Armstrong (End of Level Boss, et al) and drummer Kieran Murphy, Noisepicker deliver a unique sound that is a melding of bluesy groove and sludge grit, with a punk heart beating underneath. On Peace Off the band refines and expands on their infectious style, which sounds like what would happen if Orange Goblin vacationed in the Mississippi Delta.
In anticipation of its release, we are excited to bring you a full stream of the record alongside a special track-by-track breakdown composed by Armstrong himself. Check out all the goods after the break. Continue Reading

Wrong’s debut ep Stop Giving marked a shift in the songwriting canon of Eric Hernandez/Ryan Haft. Previously the pair logged many miles in post-hardcore outfit Capsule. The latter was more than capable of countless arrangement and feel changes in literally under 60 seconds whereas the former adopted an approach more akin to New York jazz/noise/groove legends Helmet. With Haft and Hernandez time-tested work ethic, Stop Giving was followed by an 11 song, self-titled full-length album a short time later. Wrong was notable for not only its release on powerhouse Relapse records but also for it’s marked growth in songwriting, execution, and overall intensity. Continue Reading

Brooklynn trio Netherlands is the brainchild of prolific music man Timo Ellis, who is, as anyone else talking about this band will tell you, kind of a big deal. Like their 2016 record Audubon, this new EP, Hope Porn, is paradoxically as heavy as christ on the cross and irreverently fluffy and buoyant. Like a Carebear with a skeleton of lead, Netherland’s sound could sell out an arena or a have the one dude in attendance at the local warehouse gig who showed up with his comic distro telling everyone “this band rips” for weeks afterward.
