  • As We Draw / Euglena / Hexis
    By on September 14th, 2011 | 131 Comments131 Comments Comments

    genre: Hardcore/Post-Metal/Black Metal
    country: France/Russia/Denmark

    Just released online today, this is a massive wall of soundish hardcore release, filled with intense screams and heavy as fuck parts. You can easily hear both sludge and screamo influences here. Hexis is a danish band, that is best described as… Well, you can pretty much sum it up with “Celeste-esque” – massive hiss and fast drummings, intense screaming and earrape that just wont stop. The russian Euglena is heavy and brutal, starting out with a long intro with guitars weeping and sustained screams. As We  Draw is a very powerful trio from France, a country that has a rumour of producing bands with really good emotion and melody, this is definitely true about AWD as well.

    You can download this split for free on bandcamp, or pay what you want, or you can pre-order the 12″ as well.

  • Winter Dust – Existence (2011)
    By on August 1st, 2011 | 114 Comments114 Comments Comments

    genre: Post-Rock/Piano Rock
    country: Italy

    Winter Dust is a band from Padova, Italy. This was sent to me ages ago but I just got around to listening to it. It’s a lot different from what I normally post but it was so interesting that I decided to post it. It’s a mix of post-rock, pop, and ambient rock. There are some screamy parts though! Very piano driven. Fans of Moving Mountains and bands like that would probably love this.

  • Duck. Little Brother, Duck! – Tour Demo (2011)
    By on July 26th, 2011 | 128 Comments128 Comments Comments

    genre: Screamo/Math-Rock/Emo/Post-Rock/Fuck Yes
    country: USA

    Duck. Little Brother, Duck! is a post-music band from Portland, OR. They’re insanely spastic about keeping time signatures and styles but it makes for one of the most interesting bands to listen to ever. A lot of math-rock, screamo, emo, and post-rock put together but in a unique manner. In addition to that the musicianship of each member in the band is so impressive. They recently went on tour and this is the demo that accompanied them. With three songs 6 minutes + songs this EP is a monster. The amazing thing is that each song holds your attention the entire time. Definitely check this out if you haven’t heard of them and you can also find their full length Survival Is Not A Workout for free download on bandcamp. They will be recording a new album soon so get pumped.

  • Chris Wollard (Anybody Else/Left to lose 7″, Chris Wollard and Addison Burns split 7″, Drag the river split, Over Mine mp3)
    By on May 16th, 2011 | 2 Comments2 Comments Comments

    genre: Alt-country/ folk/ Old Punk Rocker turned Country, Acousticish,
    country: USA

    Out of the ashes, of Hot Water Music has come some of the best music I have “experienced” thus far in my life.  I feel that those four men have the secret “midis” touch that is able to turn any sting of words into something golden.  I wasn’t so sure about the “Hot Water Music taking a hiatus” thing in the beginning, and I have heard the rumors that they are recording a new album, and I know that George Rebelo left Against Me!  to tour with Hot Water Music, so for their hiatus it is kinda like my last relationship,  back and forth, back and forth.  “I don’t remember what we were fighting for and i do love you i did not know what would become of us but i have to have my space!  I do at least i think i do love you,  I don’t know, I do love you….

    Today I want to focus on 1/4 of this band.   I have grown to appreciate Chris Wollard’s perspective.   Chris Wollard puts a type of  humanity into his music that makes a connection deep within.  From his work in The Blacktop Cadence (which No Idea records is saying they are coming out with a new record!) to that of Rumbleseat, and his music with “The Ship Thieves”  I believe he has carved out a niche’ for himself outside of his role in Hot Water Music. I have included odds and ends that have not come on any lp, from him.  I have also converted the only copy of Over mine that I could find.  I have his two latest ep’s included in this download.  I hope you enjoy this music as much as I have.  And remember to see him and all of his affiliate bands on tour.  Support them, so he can continue making this beautiful music.

    notes: Todos Caerán is a screamo/post-rock band from Edmonton. This is their newest release. They have a unique blend of music that mixes spoken word, ambient melodies, and chaos. Similar to Funeral Diner, Daitro, and Oriana Raeo. The vocals are SO fucking good.

    genre: screamo/post-metal/neocrust
    country: Germany, NRW
    notes: this band is so great. if you’re a fan of envy’s heavy stuff, fall of efrafa or anything like that, you should definitely get this! I’d also recommend to anyone that felt Fall Of Efrafa could need some more epic skram. I love this. The title track just nails it. The lead singer is really angry and frustrated. Enjoy.

  • Pansori – Summer EP (2010)
    By on November 4th, 2010 | 121 Comments121 Comments Comments

    genre: Screamo/Emo/Post-Rock
    country: USA
    notes: Pansori is a screamo/emo/post-rock band from Maryland. Since hearing eighthundredyearsofsilence I’ve been patiently waiting for new material from these dudes. I found this EP on Chug Life and am stoked to pass it on to you. This band has anything you could ask for in a band. They remind me a lot of a perfect mix between I Would Set Myself On Fire For You, Pianos Become The Teeth, and Cease Upon the Capitol.
