Dead Peasant Insurance is an electronic collaboration between Amanda Howland, Ryan Kuehn, Wyatt Howland, and it’s the type of electronic exploration you would expect to hear in the late 60’s or throughout the 1970’s. It’s experimental and avant-garde, not the type of works you would/could dance to but be my guest. Three songs are on the EP, longest piece running close to 15 minutes, shortest piece just over three.
The Humiliation Process (Dead Chemists/Swarm Of Nails) is a new 5-song 7″ EP by the UK’s Art Of Burning Water. The record’s longest song is just under two minutes, with such titles as “Pedro More Or Less”, “We Have No Friends”, and “Posh Cunt Takeover”, so if you’re a fan of hardcore punk with a bit of metal riffage thrown in and an edginess that will make them worthy of multiple listens, you’ll want to check these guys out. You can stream the 7″ in full below via Bandcamp and if you like it, you may purchase the 7″ here.
If you have Paul White’s Watch The Ants EP on One-Handed Music, you already know how good it is. Now here’s a bit more of the goodness as he was able to get a video made for “Get Your Head Round This” featuring upcoming rapper Trim.
If you have yet to hear the EP yet, do so now below through Bandcamp.
MaondreM.A.N. is back with a new one called “Intro Shit” and with help from director Tim Jieh, the video materialized. The song will be on MondreM.A.N.’s album to come, They Say I Struggle Rap (SWTBRDS), coming out in just 12 days.
Sister will have a new album read for 2014, but this Metal Blade Records band have decided to come out with a brand new video for “Sick”, which is “sick sick sick” in a Satanic manner, but you do not have to fear Lord Satana creeping into your dreams after this. The single, which also features “Two-Headed Dog”, is available below from Amazon.
You may have heard Dubkiller in high profile places, and now he’s keeping things going with a brand new song featuring Mark Victor and RockMafia. This one is called “She Shares Me” and despite the scary title and eerie vibe of the song, it is not scary.
Maybe. It is electronica, it is IDM, EDM, dubstep, or whatever. Hip-hop with blisters, take it as it comes.
An American coast to coast ordeal will be tried out, dried out, and suceeded. Does that make any sense? Probably not, but what I meant to say is that Yuck will be coming to America like The System but instead of landing in Queens, they will begin their North American tour in Philadelphia, travel across the country, hit Canada a few times before reaching the west coast before heading back to the east in mid-February. A solid month of Yuck, do not miss out on the opportunity to rock out with them. The group will be out to promote the album Glow & Behold (Fat Possum),
