Kontrolle – Zwei LP (Holy Goat Records / Cargo Records)

Today, I would like to introduce another great band that caught my attention a while ago. I wasn’t familiar with their sound before, but luckily, Jürgen of Rookie Records sent me their latest material for review. Kontrolle is a premium German post-punk trio that not only explores the depths of this genre but also goes… Read More Kontrolle – Zwei LP (Holy Goat Records / Cargo Records)

Century Egg – Little Piece Of Hair 12″ EP (Forward Music Group)

There is a plenty of outstanding indie rock bands out there, and you can’t even say anything negative about their music because they all sound equally good. However, the groups that are popping out from the crowd are rare today, so some of those groups may sound similar or almost the same. Luckily, there are… Read More Century Egg – Little Piece Of Hair 12″ EP (Forward Music Group)

Blackout Transmission – Sparse Illumination LP (Etxe Records)

There’s something about particular bands that works out best for me during the rainy days. Their music doesn’t need to contain melancholic vibes. Quite the contrary, heavy dosages of reverb, delay, and echo effects over profoundly melodic music are more than enough to keep me moving. Blackout Transmission is one of those bands you’ll instantly… Read More Blackout Transmission – Sparse Illumination LP (Etxe Records)

Послесвечение – До Лучших Времён

Nothing matches the late-night atmosphere caused by an obsessive continuous listening to post-punk music. Somehow this particular genre works for me during the night when I need to calm down and relax from a daily grind. There’s something in calm, cold, bleak, depressive, melancholic melodies that draws my attention and brings me back to this… Read More Послесвечение – До Лучших Времён

Phal:Angst – Phase IV DLP (Bloodshed666 Records)

This gem recently came to our headquarters. I was not familiar with this group until Bloodshed666 Records pointed me out to their music. What’s undoubtfully special about this band is how they combine several genres to achieve a certain ambiance. Phal:Angst sounds like nothing you’ve heard before, mainly because of their experimentations that you would… Read More Phal:Angst – Phase IV DLP (Bloodshed666 Records)

And The Bear – This Is The Darkness I Used To Tape CD (Valvolare Records)

And The Bear is quite an interesting musical outlet, entirely operated by Alexandre Manuel, a French multi-instrumental artist who has been active on the music scene since 1998. Since his beginnings, Alexandre participated as a musician in several groups, such as Hourplug, Am I Right, and The Quiet Collective, mainly by being a vocalist or… Read More And The Bear – This Is The Darkness I Used To Tape CD (Valvolare Records)

Alpha Hopper – Last Chance Power Drive LP (Swimming Faith / Radical Empathy)

This material is, what I truly believe, a second full-length by this Buffalo, NY-based quartet. Despite being fully aware of all the activities surrounding Swimming Faith, this recording somehow went under the radar, but luckily, now I have a chance to write a couple of lines about it. For those who missed my previous reviews… Read More Alpha Hopper – Last Chance Power Drive LP (Swimming Faith / Radical Empathy)
