#CONCERT

PUFF / CUNTROACHES


PUFF

''It’s punk if punk was really punk. It’s garage if your garage contains a broken dishwasher and a forgotten collection of Joe Meek records. I’ll admit there’s something of Devo in there but this is far from nostalgic - nostalgia makes for happy memories, PUFF don’t."

"Electro-analog chaos, heavy on the attack and decayed beyond recognition. Animatronic frivolity reigns supreme here, with sounds fit for a post-apocalyptic arcade game, and lyrical outrageousness that never wavers"

CUNTROACHES

"Berlin's Cuntroaches are taking noise punk to dizzying heights on this demo, but they are rooted in noise rock and experimental sounds instead of the blown-out hardcore that seems to lead so many bands down this hole. What if your local noise-not-music outfit was fed a steady diet of Swell Maps, Front 242, the VSS and Swans, all before they were handed instruments for the first time? Cuntroaches inject the chaos before the music even exists and then put the music on top. The shit is so far out there that it's hard to comprehend, but rest assured that minds will be blown."

#CONCERT

Emma Ruth Rundle


The music of Emma Ruth Rundle is nearly swallowed by darkness, but Rundle does not seem oppressed by it. Having toured with acts like Deafheaven and Earth, Rundle made her name performing mournful, minor key compositions, swelling with gothic drama. But to classify her music as macabre is to deny its cathartic, even uplifting qualities. OnMarked for Death, the follow-up to 2014's Some Heavy Ocean, Rundle upgrades that album's gothic folk with a more colorful palette. Here, she strengthens the atmospheric guitar work that comprised her instrumental solo debut, Electric Guitar One, and enlivens her songs with anthemic, weightless choruses. And while her two previous solo releases, as well as her work in the noisy LA trio Marriages, set a precedent for Marked for Death's more ambitious material, it doesn't make the record feel any less thrilling. Each of its eight tracks showcase a songwriter testing the limits of her sound and redefining herself in the process.

#CONCERT

Buildings


Buildings' noise-rock is like a burrito supreme sprayed across the windshield: gross, hilarious, awesome. On its third album, You Are Not One Of Us, the Minneapolis trio has become far more adept at wrapping its angular riffs around punk, noise-rock and post-hardcore with a certain amount of dexterity. Buildings' have a bit of that Jesus Lizard nastiness, but with the determined backbone and heady chops of Dazzling Killmen.
