Its been a noisy week over here at newmusicsocial. There were two new releases this week that stood out, the new single by Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs ‘Reducer’ on Rocket Recordings taken from their third album ‘Viscerals’ and ‘Hyperion’ the latest single from Slift, out on Stolen Bodies Records taken from their second album 'Ummon', due out at the end of February. Reducer is an all-out aural assault and Hyperion, a fulsome bit of wah drenched space rock. Great stuff.
The immersive sound of another Rocket Recordings band Bonnacons of Doom also came under the radar this week with Esus from the EP of the same name. The rest of the EP is made up of three remixes, with the JD Twitch Optimo remix of Solus well worth checking out too.
Having been to see the excellent Yammerer last week playing at the Aces and Eight in Tufnell Park, it seemed only reasonable to check out a couple of the other acts on their label Restless Bear, who have an excellent playlist on Spotify by the way. The two bruising tracks that caught attention were ‘Steady as she goes and dies’ by Gravves and Danephesians 4.31 by Deh Yey which came out in October last year.
