CHANNELS, THE- Double Negative - n/a - DROP MEDIUM

click to enlarge Superbly great Post-No Wave album from New Englands THE CHANNELS, featuring ex-members and collaborators of GUERILLA TOSS. Their sound comes from a perfect understanding of combining rhythms with the Punk and Noise experiments as invented by NYC's No Wave groups in the 80s, and channelling it into finely structured and surprisingly accessible songs. Rhythmically pounding, excitingly filled with percussive surprises, and electronical distortion effects... Like a mixture of SPRAY PAINT and the HOUSEWIVES, or like GUERILLA TOSS meeting with MAHJONGG (the sadly underrated great band from Chicago earlier this century).

DATENIGHT- Comin' Atcha 100mph - n/a - DROP MEDIUM

click to enlarge Wow! What a fucking great record! Nashville teenagers DATENIGHT have finally realized their first full-length vinyl album, and it has turned into one of the BEST Punk records in many years!!! 12 no-frills jammers, raunchy rocking, hook-laden, often anthemic! References could be cited from Flying Nun bands like THE CLEAN, to the FEELIES, the early REPLACEMENTS, and as well THE FALL! But what may sound like it could be almost a "compilation of influences", is actually a spirited and inspired, non-stop fully entertaining Post-Punk smasher! Such a young band with a such a convincingly great sound. Almost unbelievable. Limited edition of 200 copies only! Get this absolutely awesome records while you can... https://datenightband.bandcamp.com/releases

DOG- Trash Temple - LP - DROP MEDIUM

click to enlarge DOG is an experimental Noise-Punk lo-fi grind project from New York, specializing in a sound thatís altogether fucked up. As damaged, scrappy and unconventional as it can get, yet structured. Lots of noises on heavy rumbling rhythms, with a vocalist growling and barking (hence the name dog?). Is this trash temple the post-industrial version of the CRAMPS, or something like that? Who knows. But for sure you've never heard a record quite like this one before. https://dropmedium.bandcamp.com/album/trash-temple

PUCKER UP- Utopia/Is What It Is - 7"+MP3 - DROP MEDIUM

click to enlarge No Wave Noise twopiece hailing from the same Bostonian scene like GUERILLA TOSS, PALBERTA, FAT HISTORY MONTH and DOG. This fantastic single contains two long tracks, both running over 5 minutes. It's like a nuts combination of PERE UBU and HALF JAPANESE... and overall it's strange but supercool fun! https://dropmedium.bandcamp.com/album/utopia-ep

SHIMMER- s/t - LP - DROP MEDIUM

click to enlarge Art-Punk No Wave Noise thunder from Brooklyn/New York, featuring singer Anina Ivry-Block and drummer Nina Ryser of PALBERTA! A rollicking blend of incoherent rhythms, guitars with maximum tremble, and an unheard vocal style! Where a band like SHEER MAG is going for the traditional Rock way, SHIMMER is sprinting in the opposite direction, tearing down any and all conventions. A most excellent and unique record, and one of the most notable ones of the year! Forget Lydia Lunch, that was happening 40 years ago, here's her modern incarnation. Total frenzy! Listen to their version of "Not Fade Away", and you'll understand (or not): https://dropmedium.bandcamp.com/album/shimmer
