Jaguwar – ‘Iwo Jima Island’

jaguwar-ii

On April 1 Prospect Records will deliver the second offering from Jaguwar, aptly titled ‘II’! The German shoegaze outfit has posted the first public song ‘Iwo Jima Island’, a raucous noise rocker that borders industrial. The Dresden-based trio doesn’t pull any punches!

Cloak – ‘Understand’ [Premiere]

cloak-understand

It’s a pleasure to present ‘Understand’, the first official single from Cloak! The New Yorkers blend the mania of noise rock with a razor sharp, industrial sound and shoegaze textures. The concoction makes for a dense, immediate, hard hitting anthem. The four piece features guitarist Adam De Rosa, percussionist Brian Mulvaney, synth wiz (and novelist) Oliver Edsforth, together with sonic mastermind Sam Tyndall. Not to forget collaborators Shannon Funchess (of Light Asylum) and Dave Ogilvie (Skinny Puppy / Nine Inch Nails). The noisemakers first formed in 2014 before posting an ear melting demo of a song called ‘Pushed’. There’s no firm plans for an EP/LP as yet, but stay tuned! Brooklyn locals can catch Cloak live on August 16 at Palisades (details here).

White Night Ghosts – ‘Decadence’

WHITE NIGHT GHOSTS - 'DECADENCE'

Gut churning, impulsive and bold, ‘Joy’ the debut EP from White Night Ghosts isn’t subtle!  The industrial electronic noise of ‘Decadence’ (free download) may have shoegaze influences but pushes beyond with dark, borderline gothic undertones. Originally the solo project of Antoine Warneck but now a duo (with Vincent Calvar), the Frenchmen released ‘Joy’ this month digitally and on vinyl through Cranes Records.

The History Of Colour TV – 'I Knew It Was Wrong But I Did It Anyway'

On January 29, Saint Marie Records release the debut LP ‘Emerald Cures Chic Ills’ (pre-order here) from Berlin’s The History Of Colour TV. ‘I Knew It Was Wrong But I Did It Anyway’ is one of the rare moments of pop sunshine on this record… and there’s still a shrill simulated scream in the bridge! There’s something odd around every corner of this album, industrial brick walls, ecstatic synth lines, delicate pop melodies, evil drones, this is an experience well rewarded for those willing to take the trip. Suited for fans of The Soft Moon, A Place To Bury Strangers or Bloody Knives.

The Soft Moon – 'Want'

The apocalyptic noise of The Soft Moon is back, musician Luis Vasquez has delivered his second LP ‘Zeros’ via Captured Tracks (November 5 in Europe). The electronic darkness is no less dense than on his 2010 debut, take ‘Want’ for example. The record is drenched in an 80s electronic haze. Moving from post-punk and krautrock and falling headlong into gothic industrial territory a la Skinny Puppy or even later Gary Numan but with less structure. Perhaps less digestible than The Soft Moon’s debut and guaranteed to scare the kids.

SPC ECO – 'Rip It All Home'

Amazing tune from SPC ECO‘s newly released ‘Dark Notes‘. ‘Rip It All Home’ switches between harmonic vocals and industrial noise rock doom! The production on this is superb, there’s a real sense of weight, that grinds away machine-like. Yet the vocals of Rose Berlin keep it floating, somehow reassuring the listener that this isn’t such a menacing listen after all. But of course it is.
