I’m enjoying this new record from Tidal Arms. Recommended if you like heavy, riffy, sludgy, noisy things. It’s a little all over the place, but in a way that keeps it from feeling stale. Well worth checking out.
The lord giveth, and then she taketh away. We had hoped PRODcast 66 would be a joyous occasion during which we would celebrate the achievements of Yasiel Puig and also his recent 23rd birthday. But it turns out today is a day that will live in infamy, as our favorite baseballing player, Mike Trumbo, was traded from the Angles to the Diamondbags. It is with a heavy heart that we bring you this progrum.
Given that Cave In and Converge are two of my favorite heavy bands of all-time, I knew that this Mutoid Man record was gonna be right up my alley, but this is just RIDICULOUSLY AWESOME. Better than I could have imagined.
I’ve also been streaming the crap out of this new record from A Wilhelm Scream. Like the Swellers record I just posted, it digs up a lot of mid 90s nostalgia too, and reminds me a lot of the early Strung Out and Propagandhi that was such a huge part of my playlist back then. It’s full of great melodies and some serious punk rock shredding. If you’re into that sort of thing I’d recommend you pre-order Partycrasherhere.
I’m totally digging the new Swellers record that came out on Tuesday. It’s revived some mid-90s punk rock receptors in my brain that I thought had gone dormant, and its catchy melodies and riffs have been stuck in my head all week.
