PICKS OF THE WEEK:

1  Austin, TX punk / post punk band INSTITUTE ”Dazzle Paint” from the forthcoming LP ‘Readjusting the Locks’ via Sacred Bones Records.                                                                                                                                                 

It has been rather a long time coming since the 2017’s sophomore LP, but it was totally worth it, judging by the new single, the band guitar-driven burst of punch, grit and anger has remained unbated.

2  Detroit‘s industrial / goth / post-punk three-piece RITUAL HOWLS “Devoured Decency” from the 4th LP ”Rendered Armor” out now on Felte

Morriconian western-infused gothic postpunkers drop the unmistakable LP of the week, and definitely one of best the year. 

3  Moscow, Russia dream pop/coldwave/new wave solo project by In a Lonely Place vocalist, Пожар aka Pohzar “Цвет/Colour” new single                                                                                                                                   

Russian artist’s immaculate deep sad, wistful synths melodies move deep down inside as usual, far too underestimated…
