New Kal Marks EP

Sometimes after I drink too much I find myself mimicking Kal Marks voice. It's never an effective pick-up move. But it is the driving howl of Boston's most cohesive three piece that continues its dark & sludgy progression with Zimmerman being one of their most memorable songs to date. The organ on It Was a Very Hard Year is what you would hear when an evil clown is lurking nearby before the nightmare is over. It may be "just a lonely fart" but this one’s a little ripper that's gonna leave a stain.

show on wednesday with KriII....https://www.facebook.com/events/521395874629730/

DOOMSDAY STUDENT RECORD RELEASE SHOW - SATURDAY IN PROVIDENCE

Providence's Doomsday Student somehow summon the joyful noise of four 8 year-olds who've never played music using very structured (but still noisy) songs. Live, singer Eric Paul moves around like a bully making fun of a "spastic," while his bandmates similarly bully their instruments.

Their new record, A Walk Through Hysteria Park, sounds a lot like their old band, Arab on Radar, and much noisier than their other previous band, Chinese Stars.  

Record release show this Saturday, 11/29/14, in Providence, at Dusk, their final show 'til March.


Sports Coach Releases First EP

Most coaches probably spend their spend their spare time off the field rubbing their stupid bald heads like my old basketball coach; but not Sports Coach, coach of all sports, in his spare time he's busy putting out music under the "athletic wear" genre of bandcamp. Once you get past the NFL soundbites at the beginning of every song you'll find catchy little post punk tunes with an assist from lo fi. This ep only lasts a little bit over an average quarter but for Sports Coach it's all about leading his team to victory. One day at a time.

GREAT WESTERN PLAIN

Portland, Maine’s Great Western Plain float in a strange place somewhere between Americana and Noise Rock. 2014's Elastic Smile starts off with a 12 minute bass-driven jam called "Thom" which gets fun and noisy, but "Venado Negro" is the stand-out track, mixing a smooth chant-like vocal with fuzzy bass rumbling below. Their melodic but heavily processed vocals, bluesy bass lines and chord progressions have this rural quality that suits both a long drive across the “great western plain” and punks kicking over trash cans in the big city. Listen here. - Paul Jordan Talbot

FEEDING TUBE RECORDS RELEASES BUCK GOOTER'S "THE SPIDER'S EYES" TODAY!

When was the last time you saw an industrial band play an intimate, inexpensive show? If you've never seen Buck Gooter, your answer is probably "1987." Today, Northampton's Feeding Tube Records release this wonderfully intense duo's newest record. No, they're not father and son (Billy and Terry met while working together), but they are genuinely weird. Billy does most of the singing, getting in the faces of numbed barflies until they either join in or push him away, but sometimes Terry takes the mic, as on their song about having sex with a hornet's nest. Check them out:
