Buffalo is not New York City. It’s nowhere near New York City. It’s not even coastal. Buffalo is closer to Toronto or Cleveland than it is to NYC. And yet Buffalo is, at present, cranking out some of the best New York rap in recent memory. In the past few years, Westside Gunn and Conway, … More »
Death-metal expats turned purveyors of “goth mom-rock” The Holy Circle seep their brand of shoegaze in impenetrable gloom. Sharing catalog space with weirdo-rap outfits like clipping. and True Neutral Crew, the Baltimore trio plays the part of unlikely outliers as they prep their first release on Deathbomb Arc: Sick With Love, arriving July 19.
The EP’s first single, “Free and Young,” dropped earlier last month, described by post-punk.com as “David Lynch’s take on sixties doo wop and early rock n’ roll.”
TMT is the plug for your next dose of The Holy Circle’s howling, industrial dream pop: “Lovely One,” which furthers this vision of the band as performers at Twin Peaks Roadhouse, letting tectonic basslines rip as neon flickers. A chiming, gothic guitar riff threads through stretched syllables, dragging the listener deeper into melancholia.
Sick With Love tracklisting:
01. Moorland Loneliness
02. Free and Young
03. Lovely One
05. Fever Break
06. Midnight Hush
Hey, what’s this? Didn’t Keiji Haino and SUMAC collaborate for a thoroughly improvised studio album just last year? I was under the impression that the former only did repeat meetings if Tatsuya Yoshida, Jim O’Rourke, or Oren Ambarchi were involved — or if Haino’s ghostwriter came along and wanted to suggest an additional 20 words per track title over coffee. That verbosity has certainly existed on a plethora of Haino collaborations over the years; and in 2018, Haino got wordy with SUMAC, the sludge metal band from the PNW, which is also the latest band of choice for proverbial doom vagabond, Aaron Turner. (Apparently, aspiring monogamists can only dream of the chemistry on display during the original recording session at Tokyo’s Goksound in June 2017.)
Shortly after that, Haino and SUMAC performed at Fever in Tokyo, and that set is what comprises a new LP on Trost, entitled Even for just the briefest moment Keep charging this “expiation” Plug in to make it slightly better. The album was mixed by Randall Dunn in Seattle and mastered by James Plotkin.
Feel free to read that title again if you absolutely insist on some degree of comprehension, though we might just be witnessing an ongoing ode to James Joyce here. Watch the album trailer and have a listen to, uh…the second track below. Oh, and here’s where you can buy the thing. It’s out this Friday, June 28!
Even for just the briefest moment Keep charging this “expiation” Plug in to make it slightly better tracklisting:
01. Interior Interior Interior Interior – Space – Disgusting Disgusting Disgusting
02. Now I’ve gone and done it I spilled holy water (just water) over that thing called healing music……………………………. / There was a faint “Tsk”noise
03. Even for just the briefest moment / Keep charging this “expiation” / Plug in to making it slightly better
04. (First half) / Once, twice, thrice / When you press the third time / Carve esteem and despoliation into your heart (Second half) / Every historical scar / Has been lined up at regular intervals but / Their permeation is different / Beautified with a loss spray

I don’t wanna die tonight. You don’t wanna die tonight. No one wants to die tonight. We especially don’t wanna die of an overdose tonight. That’s the message of the latest single from Los Angeles producer So Drove (Adam Schwarz). Being from the ‘burbs of the Midwest, I’m used to the DARE advice to “Just Say No” and to view all drugs and drug users as “the bad people.” But now that I am out of the Garfield-induced comfort zone of my youth and am faced with reality, it’s easy to understand that addiction and substance use is a multi-dimensional beast that’s pervasive all around us, from cities to gated communities.
On “I Don’t Wanna Die,” So Drove juxtaposes bouncy, neo-pop punk rhythms with heavy words on opioid addiction and overdose. Peep the new skateboard-centric video below (dir. Matthew Doyle) and know that all proceeds from Bandcamp benefit End Overdose and Harm Reduction Coalition, two non-profits working to fight overdose-related deaths. Rock on for a good cause!
A track that oozes sun-obsessed summers and jam packed stadium sing- a-longs, Danny Avila has taken on Timmy Trumpet’s most recent release, ‘World At Our Feet’. The rework has injected elements of club tinged percussion and powerful vocal warps on top of an already euphoric effort. Danny’s musical interpretation of World At Our Feet plays
