With his latest album, Call The Comet, Johnny Marr throws out a sonic lifejacket for the disenfranchised (The) Smiths fans that jumped overboard after Morrissey’s most recent outbursts. Call The Comet is a modern classic, that echoes Marr’s greatest songwriting.
Bruce Springsteen - Springsteen on Broadway
Springsteen’s larger-than-life persona deconstructed. Brilliant record. That’s all.
Permanent Debt - Demo 2018
Demo 2018 hits harder than the lamp post that prematurely ended Paul Walker's career.
Wiegedood - De Doden Hebben Het Goed III
Wiegedood, Church of Ra’s most recent inductees, are a cascadic, post-black metal act that originally started out as a side project by members of Supergenius, Oathbreaker and Amen Ra. The third installment of De Doden Hebben Het Goed is a brutal, relentless and uncompromising audio carpet bombing of the inside of your skull.
Whispering Sons - Image
Whispering Sons’ debut album, Image, is darker than the inside of a miner’s lungs and more depressing than the Star Wars Prequels. A rare gem in a world of mediocrity.
Kurt Vile - Bottle It In
80 something minutes of pure and unadulterated head-bobbing bliss.
DMA’s - For Now
Sydney, so much to answer for …
Cat Power - Wanderer
Cat Power is and always will be the anchor that keeps me grounded.
Negative Self - Control The Fear
When it comes to music I care more for craftsmanship than originality. To some Control The Fear might be a carbon copy of every Suicidal Tendencies classic. To me it’s the purest form of craftsmanship.
S U R V I V E - RR7400: LA041717
S U R V I V E is an analog synth band that consists of Michael Stein, Kyle Dixon, Adam Jones and Mark Donica. These names might not mean much to you, but when I tell you that Stein and Dixon are the musical masterminds behind the Stranger Things soundtrack, you know what to expect. RR7400: LA041717 is a collection of dark, brooding instrumental synth tracks that serve as an homage to the legendary Peel Sessions.
