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

Strangers With Guns and ‘Disenfranchised Fetus’

////

Strangers With Guns – Dublin, Ireland Enveloped in a viscous and foreboding sentient groove, Strangers With Guns and Disenfranchised Fetus enter 2020. The Dublin band embody much that is rare in the contemporary music scene, or rather more so that it was. The mighty, abrasive, sonically aggravating three-piece Alternative Rock band. This format has indeed survived.

Sleemo – ‘Heavenly Home (I’m In Your Mind)’ (Single)

////

Sleemo – Norwich, England, United Kingdom The seminal stylistic of Post-Hardcore truly did wonders for underground Rock. Sleemo and ‘Heavenly Home (I’m In Your Mind)’ resoundingly exist within this plethora of legacy sounds, noises and bands that have capitalised on this creative Punk offshoot. The Norwich band, now settled into a three-piece, have been riffingly-chaotic

Ryan Martin – ‘Through Thistles And Thorns’

//////

Ryan Martin – York, England, United Kingdom The words “Ryan Martin” and “Through Thistles And Thorns” are now appearing across your visual cortex in an effort to dispel the “solo-artist” assumption. In other words, this relates to the assumption that most in this vein are bound simply to an acoustic guitar. Hailing from York, Ryan

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

Beefywink and ‘Dance In The Deluge’ (23/10/20)

//////

Beefywink – Bristol, England, United Kingdom Beefywink and Dance In The Deluge enter 2020 after a considerable, vibrant, varied and voracious journey through the underground realm. The band, akin to many of the DIY stature, have been through what may seem like a hellish experience of inconsistency and indomitable, unrelenting problems. This may well seem

Early Stream: Squidge – ‘Cardboard Box’ (28/08/20)

Squidge – Bristol, England, United Kingdom Today is straight to the point, or rather within the context of my waffle that is. But yes, the early stream of Squidge and ‘Cardboard Box’. Squidge. The band whose name I never tire of typing, uttering and squashing with my ham-fisted, Isle Of Wight-originating under-articulating speaking arrangement. Words. Squidge are

Turfboy and ‘At Tension’ (08/08/20)

////

Turfboy – Dublin, Ireland Grunge. The “its been done” genre. One that has begrudgingly limped along parallel to its own fuzz staring up at the big names. Turfboy and At Tension find themselves in this camp and very much, like all underground bands in this vein, exist to dispel this apparent gazing at greats and
