Album of the day:
Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats – The Night Creeper
Posted: September 4, 2015 at 3:37 pm
Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats - The Night Creeper

Lovingly pinched from The Obelisk: Looking at the ascendancy of the UK’s Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats (often stylized with a lowercase ‘d’ on the last word) over the last half-decade is like staring into the abyss of our own worst impulses, and it seems unlikely the band would have […]

Dead to a Dying World – Litany
Posted: September 3, 2015 at 4:03 pm
Dead to a Dying World - Litany

Lovingly pinched from Pitchfork: For a moment, you think that the onslaught is over, that after eight minutes of dramatic strings and overdriven guitars, punishing drums and punished vocals, the big Texas metal band Dead to a Dying World will at last offer a respite.  After all, they’ve already detailed […]

Wildlights (formerly known as Crusades) marks the point in […]

carousel - 2113

Lovingly pinched from The Obelisk: Don’t let its minimalist cover fool you, Carousel‘s 2113 is brimming with life. The Pittsburgh four-piece’s second offering through Tee Pee Records after a raucous debut two years ago with Jeweler’s Daughter, the nine-song /4 6-minute collection also marks the arrival of guitarist Matt Goldsborough, who doubles in labelmates The […]
