NEW ALBUM STREAMS! AWESOME BANDS, NEW EP’S, NEW REASONS TO GET STOKED.
PIGS: “GAFFE” – STREAM IT RIGHT HERE ON REVOLVER
Pigs are the NYC noise-group made up of three grizzled veterans of the hardcore/noise scene. I talked about their debut album, “You Ruin Everything” here and the album made it to number 2 on my Best-of 2012 list on NoCleanSinging. So yeah, these guys are pretty fucking sweet and their newest effort, a three track EP titled “Gaffe”, lives up to that standard.
Heavy-ass grooves played down real low, lots of tom work and just as much crunch, Pigs put a set in your jaw and a stomp in your step. Standout track is “Ello Kiddies”, which along with being the catchiest song of the three also has a killer gang-shout chorus. This baby will hit the streets October 15th.
30,000 MONKIES: “OVER THE PAINBOW” – STREAM IT RIGHT HERE ON CVLT NATION
“Over the Painbow” will be the second release from the Belgium based 30,000 Monkies. I gave their debut, “Womb Eater, Wife Beater” a spin a long while back and was left a little unsettled but ultimately craving more of their unhinged assault on your mental foundation.
Slicking together layers of psychotic ambiance and pop-sludge fuzz, their music conjures images of blood-soaked teddy bears with glowing red eyes, melted pools of plastic army men and volcanoes of play-doh acid. It’s as delightfully infectious as it is superbly fucked up, with each of the four tracks on this EP taking you just a couple steps further and further away from comfortable listening space. Your evenings of acid flashbacks and howling at the moon will start on October 11th.
Oh there’s a video too. For the song “Imperial Staches”. It’s fucking weird. But more importantly. THAT RIFF.
