SHIIVA and Their ‘Groove’

/////

SHIIVA – Lancaster, California, USA California is fertile ground for Punk-Rock and Hardcore and from this sonically nutritional soil, SHIIVA and their Groov(e) enter 2020. The four-piece in this past July unleashed their debut defiance set across seven tracks durationally set between 1:32 and 2:39. That latter piece of information is simply an important bonafide morsel

Introducing: Austerity

/////

Austerity – Brighton, England, United Kingdom Introducing Austerity. Hmmm, well isn’t that a profundity rich topic in this age of the exponentially increasing Punk music cornucopia. However, despite the looming threat of my incessant waffle, I should think now, a few sentences in, it would be rude to stop and not very “Punk” to simply

Shellycoat and ‘Hide The Knives’

/////

Shellycoat – Hamburg, Germany The legacy of ’90s Punk is a lucrative well of sonics that outdoes itself. Shellycoat and Hide The Knives enter via the influence of the seminal period but in a manner open and free in its exploratory desires. The Hamburg band have been slogging it out since the early “twenteens” and in

Bruise Control and Their Self-Titled

////

Bruise Control – Manchester, England, United Kingdom Bruise Control and their Self-Titled enter into a 2020 that, for lack of a better everything else, has kept full-capacity in-ear live gigs to a recurring maximum. In other words that aren’t quite so ridiculous and do have some functional meaning when collated into a sentence, 2020 is

LASSITERS and Their Self-Titled

////

LASSITERS – London, England, United Kingdom The words “LASSITERS and Their Self-Titled” have (not particularly gracefully) graced Ear Nutrition before. This was back in the now near-mythical, comparatively utopian (but not really) time of 2018 where things were still decidedly shit, but less so. This was a time where their now Demo debut EP was

Friday Night Lights and ‘The Girl In The Picture’

////

Friday Night Lights – Leeds, England, United Kingdom 2020 has seen new music aplenty but also that of hindsight inspired improvements. Friday Night Lights and ‘The Girl In The Picture’ can be very much counted here. The Leeds four-piece, much akin to the majority of those on the UK underground circuit, had their 2020 very

Young Planetary – ‘Locations I Can’t Place’ (07/08/20)

/////

Young Planetary – Boise, Idaho, USA Indie-Rock and Alt. Rock, Emo and Pop-Punk are in a state of symbiosis in today’s music scene and this is where Young, Planetary and Locations I Can’t Place enter 2020. The joining of these legacy-of-Punk genres is no less than interesting. Through the aforementioned fusion, bands such as The

Downard and Their ‘Permanent Damage’

//

Downard – Bristol, England, United Kingdom Downard and their Permanent Damage are yet another part of my most recent catchphrase. The great 2020 catch up! Now, don’t fret, this isn’t some ill-fated trip down memory lane or some needless profundity denoting to generic trite. No, it’s my questionable attempt, failure and then follow-up attempt to again

GagReflex – ‘What We Owe To Each Other’

////

GagReflex – Cheltenham, England, United Kingdom The bass and drums approach to Punk music is one more common than you’d think. GagReflex and their What We Owe To Each Other EP enter into 2020 via a blast of societal disdain that not only pertains to the wealth of this aspect of the Punk-scene but is
