Live Review: Wye Oak and Tuskha – Mohawk, Austin, TX

Glory Gene saw Wye Oak at Mohawk in Austin, TX. “The air surrounding the outdoor venue was thick and hot causing defective equipment and sweat in undiscovered body crevices. Nonetheless, the show drew a substantial crowd of die-hards and sets went on without a hitch.”

Please don’t let me sway you from listening to this monster of an album, there are a lot of great things to be heard. It’s a remarkable technical achievement and it deserves recognition. – By Aaron Edwards

Dead Rabbits – Everything Is A Lie

Dead Rabbits – Everything Is A Lie

Quin Galavis – My Life in Steel and Concrete

Quin Galavis – My Life in Steel and Concrete

The greatest thing I can say about this is that where most double LP sets can bring about a sense of “…another one?” just when you think it might be over, here it’s a case of “…another one!” as something else completely unexpected comes along. That small difference in punctuation makes a world of difference between a record being merely challenging and being completely engrossing, and this falls firmly and strangely into the latter category. By Si Forster

Slomatics – Future Echo Returns

Slomatics – Future Echo Returns

Slomatics have created a heavy album that is so admirably edited and executed in concept, it’s probably my favorite release this year. – By Glory Gene

Blind Pilot – And Then Like Lions

Blind Pilot – And Then Like Lions

It’s a gentle call of defiance, an acceptance of grief at the end of what was a cathartic 10-song creation. It acknowledges that even if life throws over-ripe tomatoes at you, you can still make Bloody Marys. Let’s hope it’s not another five years before we hear from Blind Pilot again. By Matt Buttler

Death Club 7 – Immortal Peaches EP

Death Club 7 – Immortal Peaches EP

Death Club 7 certainly have an ear for pop – and regular readers of my reviews know I have an enduring love of pop, and an enduring disappointment of the homogenous mince grinder that modern pop has become. King certainly deserves a wider audience. It may be hard work trying to build it. But in a world of anodyne popsters, Death Club 7 bring dark relief. By Stuart Benjamin

King Goat – Conduit

King Goat – Conduit

There’s an intangible something that makes these songs, and this album, a cut above any other doom records you might have listened to lately. – By Stuart Benjamin

Abigail – The Final Damnation

Abigail – The Final Damnation

The bottom line is this album is loads of fun, with its debauchery and Satanism turned up to cartoonish levels. – By Matt Butler

Skeletonwitch – The Apothic Gloom

Skeletonwitch – The Apothic Gloom

‘The Apothic Gloom’ shows just how good Skeletonwitch was and is still becoming. After a discography of quality releases, that is a welcome reassurance for fans of the band and metallers the world over. – By Al Necro

Live Review: Frost* – 02 Islington Academy, London

Matt Stevens saw progressive powerhouse Frost* play at the Islington Academy in London. “This was a great gig by superb players with top tunes and is good as song orientated progressive music gets in 2016.”

Interview: Shawna From War On Women

Interview: Shawna From War On Women

Confrontational, at times literally in your face, feminist polemicists War on Women are a hardcore punk sonic assault on sexism. Their lyrics incisively expose and challenge the multi faceted, many layered cultural, political and economic oppression, inequality and harassment experienced by women. Before their recent Norwich gig Shawna kindly took time out to discuss music, feminism and, well, pretty much everything really!. By Tim Forster
