It’s some alternative post-rock, sometimes I feel it’s shoegazer style but then often it’s much more upbeat and lively than that. The percussion grooves are killers. It’s rare that I hear a drummer and start looking up other projects by them just based on the beats played—this is one of those cases. But all other aspects are amazing too, like bits and pieces of melodies, and some well-placed spoken word segments or samples. It’s a record that I have a hard time putting into words: I feel like I don’t have the right dictionary to describe what I hear, but I love it so much. It’s really surprising and absolutely amazing.
It doesn’t get any more effortlessly cool than this. Fun, quirky alt rock that’s catchy like covid.
Sometimes you can think “but all the tunes have all been written already, so what new are we expecting” and then comes something like this, which just opens a complete new portal with three notes on the bass. I love when this happens, makes me keep going and listen to ten new records a day again.
I came across the track Fall on an episode of Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet and it has that trigger of “alright, what’s this, search immediately”. The album as a whole is like a low-fi bedroom alt-rock recording, and in that Fall is a smash hit.
First thing first: Dog Fashion Disco is one of my top 5 favorite bands ever across all genres. Thier avant-garde metal is quirky, bizarre, fun, strange, and overall absolutely astonishing. It’s like a dead jazz musician reanimated as a metal-head zombie and marching around in a dark circus in a clown outfit with all instruments hanging on it and played at the same time. And love songs. And satan. And life wisdom.
And finally their full catalogue is available on Spotify. As far as I know there was some legal shit going on why they couldn’t have done that so far and now all the albums are there. So I can listen to this masterpiece called Adultery every other day like every normal person should. (I’ll still keep my safety copy in Dropbox, just in case.)
Random note: now when looking for an album cover image and searching for the band and album title did I stumble upon that this concept record has been made into an actual novel. How cool is that! I’ve quickly put it on my reading list, I really hope it’s just as trash as I want it to be.
Ah man, I love this music so fucking much. It’s like air to breath and blood to drink.
Somehow I went backwards with Protomartyr’s discography. I can conclude that their first album is just as great as the last one.
KOMPROMAT is Vitalic and Rebeka Warrior. I don’t really know what this is in terms of genre or style, and it uses the two languages that are pretty remote to me. But listening this on repeat made me start to like German as a language. Wonderful music, moods, colors (of grey). Once it’s an electronic thing, then I have a cognitive hyperlink to Heilung. They themselves say dark and neopunk, Discogs writes electroclash and industrial. Hard to say. But it’s a mandatory listen at the moment.
They say alternative, NME says punk, and this is my idea of good indie rock. And a blast first record.
Alternative pops, garage sounds, dreamy moods, party out rocks. It’s like when the Asteroids Galaxy Tour was new, or the music to listen to at a festival bench while drinking up the more-than-tenth beer and shot.
Low-fi-alt-garage-rock-indie-post-punk from Belgrade. This is the band in your next door basement that you hear at night and would like to see them in your favorite venue.
Refreshingly nothing special, simple alternative rock shoegazer album. It’s like your friend’s band from high school.
