Min Eraser-Conscious Unconscious LPM.Ramekimages

Sat, 23 May 2009 21:01:37 +0000

Mind Eraser-Conscious Unconscious (Clean Plate)  Formative efforts from Boston’s Mind Eraser were less than remarkable. Their debut and sophomore LPs, “Cave” and “Glacial Reign”, provided  bursts of Crossed Out/Neanderthal worship amidst monotonous sludge and  repetitive thrash. Coherent song structures took second stage to style-over-substance romps, and, at least at the outset, the band seemed to […]

(SHDWPLY Records, 2008 ) G regarious, meditative tweaked out thrills abound on Gary War’s  “New Raytheonport” A waiting the listener: an exotic patchwork of synthscape chills, ’60s/’70s psych thrills, analog space jams, and  fx-dripping lounge-pop sputter… R everb-drenched distort-o vox musings, trance-like croons and syrupy hooks blur the line between fractured pop songcraft and knob twiddling worm hole blackout, channeling Legendary Pink […]

Avskum-Uproar Underifran LPM.Ramekavskumprank097

Tue, 30 Dec 2008 14:59:54 +0000

Avskum-Uproar Underifran (Prank Records, PO BOX  410892 San Francisco, CA 94141-0892) 1984 was the year that a little-known 7″ entitled “Crucified By The System” lacerated the eardrums of a select few within the burg of Kristinehamn, Sweden and surrounding environs. That vomitous mohican warcry, the formative effort by a group of sullen young Swedes known as Avskum, came off like deconstructive, embryonic Discharge […]

In the modern rap game it is not uncommon for overlooked scores of genuinely talented lyricists and producers to take the proverbial back seat to slicker, more commercially viable acts vying for ringtone sales and heavy rotation throughout the nation’s indistinguishable urban market radio airwaves. Even by such dubious standards, however, it is safe to […]

Gauze-Binbou Yusuri No Rizumu Ni Notte LPM.Ramekgauze1

Sat, 04 Oct 2008 17:57:03 +0000

Gauze –Binbou Yusuri No Rizumu Ni Notte (XXX Records (Japan) /Prank Records (USA) For over two decades, Tokyo’s Gauze have brought noteworthy depth and technical precision to the world of punk and hardcore. Countless numbers have tried unsuccessfully to approximate their euphoric eruptions– zen-like bursts of punk ferocity channeled through hints of far eastern mantra, […]

World Burns To Death-The Graveyard of Utopia LPM.Ramek

Wed, 06 Aug 2008 02:40:11 +0000

World Burns To Death-The Graveyard of Utopia (Prank Records) “The Graveyard of Utopia” is a return to form for Austin’s World Burns To Death. Where their previous LP, “Totalitarian Sodomy”, deviated somewhat from the expected formula and was criticized (unreasonably) for its (slightly) slower pacing and emphasis on low-end metallic crunch, the band’s third LP […]

Kurt Vile-Constant Hitmaker CDM.Ramek

Kurt Vile-Constant Hitmaker (Gulcher Records)  Kurt Vile (real name, apparently) has restored what little dignity there was to be had within the singer-songwriter genre. It is not as though he is cut from that cloth, exactly…heaven forbid! To be honest, his rock/psych eccentricities bear greater likeness to the gamut-running pop collages of Ariel Pink or […]

Repercussions-No Peace EP (Feral Ward, Hardly the benefactors of anglophile dis-worship, epic swedish stylings, or retro punk clamor one might expect from the Portland/Austin/Tennesee conglomerate, lone star rippers Repercussions deliver simple, straightforward US hardcore–pus oozing warts and all–with a hint of crust for good measure, of course. The band is comprised of members from a number of known […]
