    They're fucking great live - in fact one of those bands that only truly works live, and preferably in a sweaty basement.

    The singer's taken to quoting on-stage a reviewer's description of him which pretty much sums up the experience: a cross between Henry Rollins and Frank Sidebottom.

    souljacker innit

    New E-Dancer (Kevin Saunderson) is out. Only seems to be on beatport at the moment but sounds rather nice.

    Best live band I've seen this by far, great bunch of lads.
  5. braindancer

    braindancer not for long

    I've not listened to the new one by the Pigs yet - giving it a listen now :cool::cool::cool:

    Saw 'em live a couple of times a few years ago - immense. The two gigs I could of got to this year sold out before I could get tickets....

    This was out in May but I only just heard it, it seems to have been rather overlooked in the UK at least. A compliation of electronic music from North Africa and Middle East. There's a few tunes on it which are pretty mint.

    Part 2 bizarre wanking accident

    This is a 2017 album but I only just heard it.

    Lingua Ignota - All Bitches Die

    Classically trained Kristin Hayter performs under the name Lingua Ignota. Some interesting interviews online, survivor of DV, performances leave people in tears and described as being like an exorcism. My must see artist of 2019.

    e2a: rutabowa already posted in June :cool:

    killer b Minimum Waste / Maximum Joy

    I've got this Amnesia Scanner LP on atm, reckon some of you will be well into it - fucked up noisy electronica I guess. Fuck knows.

    I didn't know you could even play a digital music file at the wrong speed?

    This one totally passed me by back in Feb but has definitely grown on me since.

    Picked up Black Foxxes from some of the end-of-year lists, quite liking it - bit emo, bit indie.

    killer b Minimum Waste / Maximum Joy

    Saw these guys from Nottingham at the weekend - proper low end grinding noise rock stuff.

    New Earl Sweatshirt anyone?

    Gave it a couple of tries, but it didn't really grow on me. Too mumbly.

    Spandex A crazy bulbous punchbag of sound

    I know the low-fi production is an aesthetic choice, but that album would be really good if it didn't sound like it was recorded on a cheap cassette that's been left on the floor in a car since 1995.

    killer b Minimum Waste / Maximum Joy

    this sounds like my kind of aesthetic choice. I'll give that a spin now.

    I've liked it so far, jarring with anything else I'm hearing at the mo.

    That's why I like it!

    rutabowa LOSE IT

    I think it was only on bandcamp in 2017, and put out by a label in 2018...
  22. rutabowa

    rutabowa LOSE IT

    ... though actually all the Off Me Nut releases only ever come out on bandcamp, and self-released is just as official as label-released, so yeh I guess it was a 2017 release.

    Another Off Me Nut release, and posssibly the best this year. Though really sad to hear Basshound died last week. RIP :( Everything he did was a banger

    Finally got round to listening to Bruce's debut album and it doesn't disappoint. :eek:
