Spectres – ‘Where Flies Sleep’

spectres-dying-artwork

Spectres know how to create provocative artwork, and noise rock! The kind that makes you think, “what is that exactly!?”. The Bristol four piece are set to overwhelm with their debut album ‘Dying’ (out February 23 via Sonic Cathedral). The buzzwords “white noise” and “visceral” are apt! This is “grab you by the throat” rock n’ roll, a la A Place To Bury Strangers, Odonis Odonis or The KVB.

A Place To Bury Strangers – ‘Straight’

A Place To Bury Strangers have finally announced that their fourth album ‘Transfixation’ will be out February 17 via Dead Oceans! The New York noise rockers have shared the first song ‘Straight’. It’s tipped to be a more experimental album than 2012’s ‘Worship’ and features their most recent recruit, drummer Robi Gonzalez. APTBS will kick off a North American and European tour in early 2015 (see dates/tickets).

Spectres – ‘Sea Of Trees’

Exciting news from Spectres, the noise rocking foursome will team up with Sonic Cathedral to release their debut LP next year! The first song ‘Sea Of Trees’ has arrived with visuals by Sophie Hoyle. It lulls you into a nice melodic space, then drenches you in experimental noise. The Bristol band are never shy to push the boundaries, making sport of rough edges and invasive distortion! Having jumped on the Spectres bandwagon with 2013’s ‘Hunger‘ EP, I’ve got no doubt the LP will be an engaging and challenging listen.

Rayning – ‘Bury The Lovers’

Detroit solo artist Gerald McKay has released his latest EP under the Rayning moniker. The self-titled collection is Gerald’s third (in as many years) and follows ‘Refraction’ from last October. ‘Rayning’ features a mix of dream pop and shoegaze, along with some brutal noise rockin’ moments! The mastering is a little hard on the ears but it’s well worth the journey, for fans of Astrobrite and Ceremony. Side note, the different art for each track is a nice touch!

Ceremony – ‘I Wanna Play’

John Fedowitz of Ceremony has just posted a bonus cut from the ‘Distance’ LP called ‘I Wanna Play’! The Fredericksburg noise rocker (and former Skywave member) originally released the album last year via Moon Sounds Records. Ceremony has since followed it up with the ‘Birds‘ EP. Often bonus tracks aren’t worth your minutes but ‘I Wanna Play’ is solid, once again John pushes every boundary our eardrums can handle!
