SENECA and ‘Exhale, Sigher’

/////

SENECA – Devon, England, United Kingdom SENECA and ‘Exhale, Sigher’ fit into an interesting time within the underground music-verse. The ability to churn-out releases and even write and practice has been severely inhibited these past twelve-plus months and yet, the music scene has remained indomitable by a hairsbreadth. 2020 saw a tirade of ironic releases

Billy No Mates and ‘S.F. Sourdough’ (29/01/21)

///

Billy No Mates – Snuffington Manor, USA, This Time Contrary to popular belief, the title of Billy No Mates and S.F. Sourdough is really quite misleading. Billy actually has quite a few mates you know. In the past, his release history has enlisted friends from across the UK Punk scene and as afar afoot as

Those Fucking Snowflakes – ‘Everything Is Absolutely Fkkkkkkd’ (22/01/21)

////

Those Fucking Snowflakes – Blackpool, England, United Kingdom “Those Fucking Snowflakes and Everything Is Absolutely Fkkkkkkd” is an eyecatching title for a band and their debut. These very words, considering the rhetoric and terminology used, could actually be interpreted to be quite problematic and regressive. Thankfully, this really isn’t the case, for Those Fucking Snowflakes

Spam Javelin – North Wales, Wales, United Kingdom How does one introduce Spam Javelin and The Three Chords Of The Apocalypse? That is the real question befalling any attempt at literary description or promotion. However, it is a question I can’t really be fucked with for too long so I shall say this. Spam Javelin are

Good Friend and ‘The Erin Rose EP’

///

Good Friend – England/Northern Ireland, United Kingdom Good Friend and The Erin Rose EP dropped surprisingly on the 11th December. Although Good Friend had been teasing the follow-up to 2016’s Ride The Storm, the exact release date was mired in uncertainty. Between the time in which the aforementioned created the excellent benchmark that it did, the

May Have Missed Volume 2

////////////

The Expanse Of The Internet “May Have Missed Volume 2” is an attempt to counter the volume of requests I receive in the various Ear Nutrition inboxes as I type away. The venture of EN, when it boils down to the barebones of itself, is a spare-time hobby. I try to do what I can,

Attendant and Their ‘Unreality’ (08/01/21)

/////

Attendant – London/Surrey, England, United Kingdom The legacy of Punk and within that, the legacy of Post-Hardcore and ’90s Alt. Rock is sizable. Enter Attendant and their Unreality. 2020 despite all, has seen an exponential tirade of underground noise and releases defying the very “fuckkkkkk” year we’ve just had. Attendant, have very much made this
