L'ETRANGLEUSE- Memories To Come - LP - RED WIG

click to enlarge Really unique twopiece from Lyon/France: Guitarist Mael Saletes (also in ORCHESTRE TOUR PUISSANT MARCEL DUCHAMP) and classically trained harp player Melanie Virot. And both of them singing. An unusual combination with a hard to describe sound. It's a sort of experimental sounding, calm and softly swinging Folk-Rock. While the harp is generally known for a soft and crystal-clear sound, with Melanie Virot it can sound as well raw and dissonant. The album was produced by John Parish, also playing drums, bass or piano on these recordings, and former THE EX member GW Sok singing on one song.
http://letrangleuse.bandcamp.com/ with 3 songs to listen to, but the LP contains 10 songs in full.

LA VASE- s/t - LP - PHANTOM

click to enlarge Obviously from Leipzig/Germany, but with a French or Belgian singer (lyrics in French). 10 songs in about 23 minutes. A tight, mid-tempo but driving mix of 77 Punk, Garage, and some Post-Punk influences thrown in. Punchy, amped-up, bouncy and filled with hooks. Sounds like back then in the late 70s, but with a burning freshness. https://vivelavase.bandcamp.com/

LAMPS- Under The Water... - LP - IN THE RED

click to enlarge Five years after their 2nd album, here's 11 new songs by this Garage-Noise/Art-Punk trio from Los Angeles. Catchy tunes buried in walls of distortion, fuzz and a massively noisey, over-amplified sound. Reminds me of the early A FRAMES, but put into a whacky and wildly fucked up way. Highly impressive and pretty cool! LP comes with download-code included.

New Release! LANDOWNER- Blatant - LP - BORN YESTERDAY RECORDS

click to enlarge Biggest surprise discovery of the year, and an instant classic!
LANDOWNER from Massachusetts play their very own(!) brand of Post-Punk! It's pumped up and punchy, reminiscent of the early MINUTEMEN and the BIG BOYS, with references to the JESUS LIZARD, and maybe a modern updated reincarnation of THE PROLETARIAT... Who knows. After all their songs and sound can't be really compared to anyone else. Be sure to check it out, it's absolutely awesome! LP comes with a printed innersleeve, and btw. great lyrics as well, limited edition of 300 copies only!
