[Music] As JK Flesh, Godflesh’s Justin Broadrick Finds Peace In Solitude and Techno

jk-flesh-1244
Justin Broadrick should be a name very familiar to you if you were ever a fan of Napalm Death, Jesu, or my two personal favorites from his oeuvre, Godflesh and Techno-AnimalBandcamp Daily references his newest material (which has sat around, in some cases, for nearly two decades), JK Flesh.

Brilliant material!

[Music] Psychic Dose – Maleficium Volume 1: Death of the Sorcerer


I’m not the biggest metal-head in the world, but this release by Psychic Dose is cueing off of the best of the metal I did manage to enjoy in my youth.

Though one could classify them as a doom metal band, they also show off influences from bands like Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath and Budgie, at least to my ears.  If there is a Part 2, I’m keen on hearing it once it comes out.

[Music] Silent Island – Stormvalley


I want to thank István Csarnogurszky, guitarist of Silent Island and musician in several amazing post-rock bands, for this new little gem of an album. His guitar playing is as fluid as ever, and as much as I like instrumental guitar albums, Csarnogurszky is ably supplemented by Gábor Károlyi on bass guitar and Mike Vecchione, who provides drum loops.

Dense, but not overwhelming. A very pleasant album to think to, but it can take you places if you want to concentrate solely on the music.

[Music] Expo ’70 – Awakening


There are so many good neo-krautrock and neo-psychedelic bands that it’s almost impossible to keep up with them. It seems a new one comes out every day, and the quality is consistently great.

Take Expo ’70, a band out of Kansas. They tie together Krautrock with a minimalist aesthetic that balances out very well.

[Music] The Vryll Society – Andrei Rublev

You have to be something else to make a song called Andrei Rublev, especially one with a Krautrock influence. Nice one, lads!

The Fat Angel Sings

Image may contain: indoorLiverpool psych-pop five-piece The Vryll Society have released a new single, “Andrei Rublev.”

The band are currently working on their debut album, and have released a series of singles and an EP titled Pangea through famed Liverpool indie label Deltasonic Records (The Coral, The Zutons, White Room). The band recently supported The Kooks, Blossoms and The Coral in the U.K., and they also made an appearance at last year’s SXSW festival in Austin.

Their stunningly beautiful new song, “Andrei Rublev” is as mellowing as it is hypnotic, with frontman Mike Ellis’ calming lead vocals, their kraut-rock rhythm section, lush synth soundscapes and intricate psych guitar lines. The song’s raw power sneaks up on listeners with its trotting bass line and shimmering Procol Harum-esque keyboards before it erupts with euphoric sonic textures and biting guitar solos.

The Vryll Society’s new track’s title refers to a 1966 Soviet historical drama of the…

[Music] Leila Abdul-Rauf – Diminution


The first time I came across San Francisco, California resident Leila Abdul-Rauf’s name was when she was playing with the all-female avant-garde metal/dark ambient band Amber Asylum.  She has become a far more powerful musician as time has passed (if you know anything about her previous work, that’s very high praise), and, given the brutal darkness of the one track shared, this new album should end up quaking my speakers rather badly (and yes, I’m looking forward to that).

The album is due to be released on April 13.

[Music] Various Artists – Planeta Post-Rock: Flama


Planeta Post-Rock is a (you guessed it) post-rock label out of Portugal. So far, from what I gather, they have made four compilations, with Flama being their most recent. It was released on April 1, so it’s all of a few days old, and it paints a great picture of what the post-rock and post-metal scene must be like old Lusitania.
