Some require email sign-ups, some your first-born, but
free and they´ve all got
guitars in. Maybe you´ll
find something you like…
Edit: STOP THE PRESSES! Last-minute addition from Soulfly!
Well this came out of nowhere! Here's the first we've heard of Soulfly's new album, 'Omen' (due 24 May). It's a neck-cracking, throat-straining, riff-roaring wake-up from the Brazilian metallers.
Max Cavalera's powerful vocals and knack for a 'primitive' riff are all on top form and here they're brilliantly complemented by Greg Puciato's (of Dillinger Escape Plan-fame) own guttural growl.
If You Only Pick One…
It´s taken years, but following the release of last year´s
definitive American scene compilation, ‘Dark Was The Night´ - which the band instigated
- The National have finally cemented their well-deserved place as modern indie
royalty. This is the first taster of new album ‘High Violet´, due 10 May.
Get The Rest…
The guys behind this band used to be in The Mae-Shi. This is
a cover of Sparks´
‘Angst In My Pants´, hence the synths, the guitars come in later. Their debut
single ‘Silverfish/What Dreams´ is out on Monday (29 March). You should probably buy that.
Panic Cell make big, chugging metal tunes reminiscent of SOiL.
Industrial guitars, double-pedalled drums, weird lyrics about some kind of
darkened fruit product, carefully wah-ed solo, it´s all here and it´s all
A lovely electro-indie ditty about growing up. One for fans
of Black Kids, The Wombats, dancing while being restricted by your skinny jeans
and catchy sing-a-longs.
Very well-constructed indie music for the thinking man.
Think Elbow meets They Might Be Giants, or a cooler, more credible Coldplay. I
know, it´s hard, but just try alright?
