Brasher – ‘Live At Axe And Trap’ Double A-Side (11/12/20)*

////

Brasher –  Bristol, England, United Kingdom Soon, Brasher and ‘Live At Axe And Trap’ Double A-Side will enter 2020 a year after the band’s debut into the underground Punk and Hardcore scene. The Bristol-based rag-tags, each from varying backgrounds both in and out of music, epitomise where modern Punk is going through their make-up, politics and grass-roots

The Dead Krazukies – ‘Icarus’ (20/11/20)

///

The Dead Krazukies – Hossegor, France The Dead Krazukies and Icarus are another to join the ironic indomitability of 2020s Punk releases. It is true that this sweetens this sour pot of a year but is more notable after the band’s four-year studio silence. Well, other than a cover of Bad Religion’s ‘Sinister Rouge’, which you

Riot Sun and Their ‘Bruises’ (04/12/20)

/////

Riot Sun – Copenhagen, Denmark Riot Sun and their Bruises will be entering the fray this coming December. 2020 saw the Copenhagen band’s inception and given their amalgamative raucously rambunctious mix of Punk-Rock, Post-Hardcore and Grunge-corrupted Alternative Rock, it is no surprise that Bruises is titled as thus. ‘Told You’ very much epitomises the very level of

Attic Salt and ‘Get Wise’

////

Attic Salt – Springfield, Illinois, USA Pop-Punk, in the grand scheme of things, is a funny one. Amidst this oddly diverse bag is where Attic Salt and Get Wise exist. The genre’s initial inception was simply melodic Punk-Rock with varying degrees of slightly more overt melody and lyrics ridden with life frustration. This, of course,

The Last Mile – Montreal, Québec, Canada The Last Mile and II are the product of a long journey through the myriad of obstacles, deviations and general curveballs that exist within the realm of underground bands.

Rattleback and ‘Weeding The Garden State’

/////

Rattleback – Melbourne, Victoria, Australia Despite its numerous derivatives, the far-from dulcet sounds of Hardcore Punk are yet to be quelled. Rattleback and Weeding The Garden State are both a collection of cognitive organisms and their respective craft that very much subsist on the voraciously, viscous vitality that is the apparently indomitable genre. The OG

Video Premiere: Poor Me – ‘Classwar’

////

Poor Me – Denver, Colorado, USA Is it any surprise that the video premiere of Poor Me and ‘Classwar’ are returning and surfacing now? No, I suppose it isn’t. The Denver, Colorado band have never been one to shy away from their beliefs and a critique of all things inward, outward and everywhere. The planet

Froggy & The Ringes and ‘Soft G’ (05/11/20)

Froggy & The Ringes – A Pond Somewhere, England, United Kingdom Froggy & The Ringes and Soft G. Well, where to start. I should think a blunt introduction is best. The five-piece are yet another addition to the vast and growing roster and amalgamation of weird, wonderful and heavy that is Kibou Records. I would also

Floods In Japan and The 2020 Demo

Floods In Japan – Kent, England, United Kingdom Floods In Japan and the 2020 Demo like many, entered said year via lockdown. Ah, lockdown, that thing that went away but not really. That thing that is now lingering like some sort of dystopian outcast ready to stake its claim, administered by fools and ironically perpetuated
