Archy Marshall – A New Place 2 Drown

von am 16. Dezember 2015 in Album

Was auf den ersten Blick wie ein Vehikel wirkt, um seinen älteren Bruder Jack ins Rampenlicht zu hieven, entpuppt sich nach und nach als multimedialer Rundumschlag mit Formvollendungs-Charakter: Archy Marshall entfernt sich von seiner Rolle als Songwriter, um seine Meisterprüfung als Produzent abzulegen.

Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds – Chasing Yesterday

von am 27. Februar 2015 in Album

Dass Noel für die besten Post-Oasis-Momente zuständig sein würde, war ja irgendwo immer klar. Dass er dies jedoch auch mit einem Album unter Beweis stellen würde, das sich dezent aus der Wohlfühlzone des Briten lehnt und dabei sogar vorführt, wie man Saxofonsoli ohne Fremdschämgefühl auffährt - das überrascht dann doch in gewissem Ausmaß.

At the end of this thriumphal past year in doom, a two-piece from California stands out from the heap of excellent releases in the genre – with their debut of all things. And the 46 minues served don’t only work as a first demonstration of talent for Keeper, even in this early state the band succeeds in articulating their hate and disgust for the world between perfectly formed crust and noise-innuendos. Jacob Lee and Penny Keats play this nihilistic mixture from close to scratch, and instantly positioned themselves as one of the most unapologetic current genre bands.

Compared to his previous work, the album has very structurized pieces, but they lose nothing of their elusive magicMesser vocalist Hendrik Otremba told us, and hits the nail on the head. Not only has Damon McMahon – together with his bandmates Jordi Wheeler and Parker Kindred, as well as many guests like Efrim Menuck, Colin Stetson and Elias Bender Rønnenfelt – succeeded in making 'Love' their best Album so far, but a beautifully surreal, psychedelic masterpiece with timeless qualities.

Waiting for the debut album of the Goodtime Boys felt like an eternity. And as it turns out it was worth waiting: 'Rain' not only keeps the promises a number of EPs made since 2011, but elevates tehir qualities onto the next level. With outstanding songs like Wallflower‘, ‘Life Moves‘, ‘Cloudbursts‘ or ‘Downpour and songwriting that succeeds in expressing aggressiveness without losing a keen sense for grand melodies, with a spacious sound that sets itself apart from the genres sameyness, and lyrics that crawl beneath the skin. Hardcore can be so beautiful.

Trash Talk – No Peace

von am 10. Juni 2014 in Album

Dass Trash Talk das Hardcore-Korsett gerne zu eng wäre weiß man spätestens seit die Derwische aus Sacramento für '119' bei Odd Future Records unterschrieben und gemeinsame Sache mit Tyler, the Creator machten. Auch Studioalbum Nummer 5 ist abseits seines irritierenden Rahmens vor allem ein wertkonservatives Stück Moshpitkatalysator geworden.
