Stardeath and White Dwarfs


Stardeath and White Dwarfs - The Chrome Children
Stardeath and White Dwarfs - The Screaming (ft. Flaming Lips)

Wastoid is the follow-up to the first Stardeath and White Dwarfs disc, The Birth, from 5 or so years ago. Remember? We liked that one a whole lot back then, and we like this one a lot, too - with its abstract sounds and refined stoner grooves and the swirling, undefinable weirdo-ness that you’d probably expect from any member of Coyne family tree. And hey, look at that! Uncle Wayne and The Flaming Lips even make an appearance to help round out all of that heavy fuzz and distorted atmospherics and most likely drug-influenced psychedelic goodness. I mean, c'mon - I'm sure it's called Wastoid for a reason.

Zammuto


Zammuto - Good Graces
Zammuto - Great Equator

I’ve been enjoying Anchor a lot more than I thought I would. That is to say, I’ve been listening to it a lot and I’m digging it more and more each time, in part because of its progression of surprising sounds and experimental, manic style shifts throughout the album as a whole. Think minimal, almost hypnotic atmospherics and chilly electronic elements that evolve quickly into quirky, offbeat grooves and heavily textured melodies, bouncing bass and complex percussion (and back again) over the course of twelve tracks. Predictable, this is not.

Death From Above 1979


Death From Above 1979 - Crystal Ball
Death From Above 1979 - Government Trash

This one might be bit predictable, but yeah - we’re really happy to see these boys back after a decade plus since they first swooped in and reduced everything else we were listening to at the time to rubble and ash with Heads Up and then You’re A Woman, I’m A Machine. Nothing’s been the same since, and nowadays, picking up where they left off, Death From Above 1979 is set to destroy a whole new generation of vulnerable eardrums and sensitive morals with The Physical World.
