According to Meg Remy: with a Moog and a microphone. A bit dazed while performing, she is focused and calculated. An equally enigmatic musician, Max Turnbull recorded his sinister pop-opera A Hound at the Hem all the way back in as a contract fulfillment to Paper Bag records.

Slim Twig may fly the weirdo flag, but hey, where would you rather be: smoking crap drugs with Ed Sheeran, or hunting space aliens with Matt Bellamy? More bands announced for DiS partnered Fuzz Clu Cut Copy - In Ghost Colours.
Equally remarkable is the killer soundtrack provided by Shooting Guns. A unique blend of heavy carpenter electronics mixed with Black Sabbath-esque riffs and even a hint of country. Upon hearing it, we just knew we had to release this. Also included is a free digital download. Like most key figures in the Antipodean noise scene, Chris Smith exists in the adventurous-musician nethersphere: hailed by followers, unknown to most.
Thankfully, Hermit Hut has taken on the mission of releasing vinyl of this impossible-to-find album. Recorded with a band, the album touches many tangents while converging as a glorious whole.
Initially inspired, surprisingly enough, by The Germs, Smith creates music as a solution to his own inner turmoil. He captures an essential rawness on par with Jim Shepard. Bad Orchestra is an assault that is wrought with skill. Every listen unearths new treasures and dynamics.
Their debut LP, Henge Beat, was commended as one of the few records released in that evaded the ease of classification and competent tribute act status of most modern bands.
Typical System develops on the incongruent demands of their debut LP and ensuing releases, a further development on their continually evolving sound. The band, ever ambassadors of Scottish gloom, have harnessed their dark muse once again and drawn on their prowess in the live arena to track a record that proves they can translate the power of their stage show to tape.
We wanted to try and capture all of those elements and develop them in some way to make the new record. Intertwining guitar lines that ride off into the sunset, shuffling head-boppers with hook after hook, mellow gothic romances and sunny melodies—they are all found herein. File Under: Indie Listen Here. Seth Sutton has been ripping the shit out of terse Telecaster-sharp riffs and Devo-indebted angular rhythms with Useless Eaters since dude was 18 years old. Psycho-sexual, serrated vocals; thin, acidic guitars; rubbery bass and hot-to-tape traps lather the whole disc.
A great alienated vibe flows throughout, along with some really sticky melodies, too. Going out under the neon tonight? Take this with you. The album is a declaration of that purpose; one laced with jarring clarity in both its content and production. Nika wrote the album on Vashon Island, a densely-wooded enclave in Puget Sound with no bridges connecting it to the mainland. Nika was influenced by her time in Iceland, Vermont and British Columbia and the album conjures these places while creating a unique sonic space of its own that each listener can travel to, explore, hide in, and celebrate.
Liberated in the present and connected to the past, this album is a transition for Zola Jesus. Masterful layers of composition are bathed in familiar atmospheric vocals, but a new sensibility is deeply present.
It was short lived too—the imprint folded in —but its influence was longer lasting. The tiny city of Dunedin, located in the Otago Region of New Zealand, is synonymous with smart bands, incredible melodies and a wholly distinct and innovative music. Local label Fishrider Records has taken on the mission of compiling and producing an album that casts a light toward the Dunedin of today. Whether it is dark synth-pop, teen angst noise pop, guitar-and-organ jangle, or all-out psychedelic weirdness, these songs all come from a place on the edge of the world where the young still read books in abundance and fend off boredom by creating music and art in cold houses.
