Discover: Malware – Spaces

This heavy, noise-rock track comes from Miami based noise project Malware! ‘Spaces‘ is a harsh, urgent track that’s completely packed with organised chaos. It’s full of hypnotic instrumentation, raw and industrial guitar parts as well as distorted electronics. It’s concentrated intensity in one track and it’s definitely one to be heard loud. If you like […]

Instrumental: Vate – Neocontainment

This minimal, yet industrial piece of experimental, electronic music comes from Mexico based music project Vate. ‘Neocontainment‘ is an oddly satisfying listen that needs to be heard loud. It’s a spacious, minimal track where robotic stomps contrast the ambient, fuzzier intricacies. ‘Neocontainment’ somehow has both playful, fluid moments whilst being mostly static/clean. The track is […]

Instrumental: Anti-Douleur – Beyrouth

This piece of instrumentation comes from saxophonist, drummer and guitarist Anti-Douler, a band who have never played in a room together thanks to 2020 being, well, 2020. ‘Beyrouth‘ is a free improvisation, narrative jazz piece that is about the Libanese capital city. It’s an intense piece of music that starts off with more relaxed saxophone […]

Instrumental: glasscleaner – Your Words Are Good (III)

‘Your Words Are Good (III)‘ is the third of three tracks under the same name from Joshua Tree based producer glasscleaner. This angular, jaunty piece of wonky instrumental music is brimming with bleeps, buzzes and interlocking melodies. ‘Your Words Are Good (III)’ is a clunky but vigorous piece of experimental music with a huge amount […]

It starts with static noise and unnerving sounds before the lucid melody that comes in which is a complete […]

Instrumental: Itta Nakamura & João Clemente – Meticulous Ink Strokes

This discordant noise-rock track ‘Meticulous Ink Strokes‘ comes from duo Itta Nakamura & João Clemente! ‘Meticulous Ink Strokes’ a dread-inducing track and one of the more melodic offerings taken from their latest EP ‘Haseru’. It’s a raw, disorderly track with an industrial vibe, but it sounds a lot better than that looks on paper. I’ve […]

Instrumental: Veik – Château Guitar

‘Château Guitar‘ is the third track taken from French post-punk band Veik‘s forthcoming album ‘Surrounding Structures’ which is set for release on 30th April 2021. It’s a doom-filled piece of instrumentation that builds up from being somewhat mellow, to discordant and rowdy, but this makes for a cathartic listen. I’m getting Snapped Ankles and Scalping […]

Instrumental: Lauren Sarah Hayes – Xeon

‘Xeon‘ is a track from Scotland/Arizona based experimental, electronic artist Lauren Sarah Hayes fully improvised EP ‘Embrace‘. It’s organised, glitch-y chaos with almost vocal-like parts that sound like they should be featured in a Tamagotchi game. ‘Xeon’ is an exhilarating track that’s swarming with frenzied, snappy synth sounds and it’s probably the most dizzying piece […]
