A Projection “Section” – album review

A Projection “Section” – album review

  Swedish Post-punk A Projection have returned with their new album ‘Section’. Being firmly in the post punk genre, it’s very hard for any band in this world to escape their influences. Which is basically one band that rhymes with Boy Division. But bringing that band up is lazy journalism. It’s like mentioning Metallica in a review of a thrash album. ‘Section’ is a well crafted album. Well written songs, plain and simple. There’s no…

The Legendary Pink Dots “Angel In The Detail” – album review

  The Legendary Pink Dots has thrived far outside the mainstream since the 80’s. Having released more than 40 albums, their latest offering ‘Angel in The Detail’ is a bold and ambitious work. Two years in the making, it is a complex and layered album. Drawing on a plethora of sounds, textures and ideas. Hovering somewhere between Underworld, The Young Gods and Pink Floyd, ‘Angel in The Detail’ warrants multiple listens to even scratch the…

Empirion “Resume” – album review

  23 years after their last (and only) full length release, Empirion have returned with ‘Resume’. Their 1996 debut ‘Advanced Technology’ yielded a substantial fanbase and a certain amount of crossover appeal. They supported the Prodigy on a European tour and played across the world before touring America in 1997 as a part of a Megadog Big Top Tour alongside the likes of Moby, 808 State and BT. And it was actually a Megadog reunion…

Drab Majesty “Modern Mirror” – album review

Drab Majesty “Modern Mirror” – album review

  Obviously Drab Majesty have a strong musical identity. Yes we all know it has a massive 80’s vibe, but it is miles apart from the assorted retro revival acts doing the rounds now, who simply use an old synth to conjure up images of a bygone era. Drab Majesty are simply really fucking good song writers. It certainly doesn’t hurt that Joshua Eustis was at the helm on production duties for this album either….

Cryo “The Fall Of Man” – album review

Cryo “The Fall Of Man” – album review

  This is a refreshing departure from a lot of the synth wave and electronic material surfacing at the moment. There is a sense of foreboding and menace from the offset in ‘Know Your Enemy’. Employing a bass tone Peter Hook would be happy with and  vocal tone akin to that of Rob Dougan. It sets the tone for tan album that is well crafted, explores a myriad of sounds and textures and instantly captivates…

Drab Majesty new video for “Oxytocin” and tour dates

  Drab Majesty have release their new video, ‘Oxytocin’. Directed by Leigh Violet, ‘Oxytocin’ is elegantly stylized and features Drab Majesty’s Deb Demure and Mona D and cameos from Kennedy Ashlyn (SRSQ), Jackie Dunn Smith, Dan Phillips (True Widow) and others. “We’re invited subtly inward, beyond the persona into a vulnerable zone, calling to the surface subtle insights about the alternate environs Drab Majesty seem to inhabit. A mood piece eschewing narrative in favor of…

Junky Love return with their fourth single ‘Nowhere To Go’

Junky Love return with their fourth single ‘Nowhere To Go’

  Describing the lyrical content of the song, vocalist Axel states: “it is about self medicating and substance abuse. As anxiety and mental health issues reign over our sanity, many of us seek to numb that pain away. A marriage of drugs and alcohol is often the painkiller we fall in love with.” It does what you would want from a psychedelic rock track and it strays into desert rock territory at time, taking a…

Agent Side Grinder “A/X” – album review

Agent Side Grinder “A/X” – album review

  Agent Side Grinder are back with the new album ‘A/X’. Following on from their eponymous 2008 debut and through to the much more synth based ‘Alkimia’ in 2015, Agent Side Grinder have shown a constant evolution in their sound in their 11 year career and gaining a reputation as being a powerful live band. ‘A/X’ is a very synthy album. ‘Synth wave’ if you’re trying to be cool. And it uses it’s electronic footing…
