su19b - discography

Location - Japan
Genre - Powerviolence, Doom, Grind

Not much to be said about these guys just very doomy japanese pv.

Mind Eraser

Location - Boston, MA
Genre - Hardcore, Powerviolence, Powerviolence

Apocalyptic hardcore at it's finest. This is not all of their releases, just three LPs. If you are into sludge definitely at least get "Conscious Unconscious," it mixes powerviolence and doom quite perfectly. The others are more fast paced but just as sludgy only shorter songs. For fans of Ceremony and Crossed Out.

Heathens - s/t

Location - Richmond, VA
Genre - Hardcore

Really heavy hardcore.

Vile Intent - Demo 2008

Location - Canada
Genre - Powerviolence, Hardcore

Great pv outfit from Canada. I saw them at the Nowarehouse in Baltimore on Memorial Day of last year. Out of the whole cookout/bash - which hosted bands such as Surroundings, Magrudergrind, Endless Blockade, Maruta, Chainsaw to the Face - Vile Intent's set was one of the best there. Some parts get pretty sludgy and super dooper awesome.

Fighting Shit

Location - Reykjavik, Iceland
Genre - Hardcore, Thrash

Fast, pissed, somewhat melodic hardcore from Iceland. This is one of the two magnificent icelandic hardcore bands I know of - the other being I Adapt. Obviously "Tuned for Thrash" is more fast paced and thrashy than "Bothered"which has more of the melodic elements but still maintains the speed and energy.

The Roots - Things Fall Apart


The Roots played yesterday in D.C. It was supremely awesome.

Project Polaroid - s/t

Location - New York, US (I am guessing)
Genre - Rap

This album is a tad strange as most of the music featuring Kool Keith (Dr. Octagon, Mr. Nagatco, Dr. Doom) is. However, this album is so good. It is not ground breaking nor is it all that original, it is pretty run of the mill as far as Kool Keith's sound goes, but for some reason it was a breath of fresh air for me. I don't know maybe you will be able sense the same thing I did and fill me in on exactly where that refreshing sense stems from. Lastly, this album cover is by far in my top favorites along with Combat Wounded Veteran's "This Is Not an Erect, All-Red Neon Body," Extortion's "Sick," and Self Destruct's "s/t 7."

ps. I don't know why the file name is "t." but it is the album, I upped it myself. If it is not let me know and it will be fixed.

Jazz Liberatorz - Clin D'Oeil

Location - Meaux, France
Genre - Rap, Jazz

Very heavily jazz influenced album. Group is composed of three producers who also use live instruments, which is very respectable in a world dominated by computer based production. Very laid back, most of the people spitting on this album have a really solid flow. This is their first full length. I don't know who actually spits on this record, if it is members of the groups or friends of theirs or what not, if someone knows please help a brotha' out.

Panacea - Corkscrew Gaps EP

Location - DC, US
Genre - Rap, Jazz

Beautiful jazzy hip hop. Lyrics are great, beats are even better. With two of the best producers in the business - Damu the Fudgemonk and K-Murdock - along with lyricist Raw Poetic this magnificent trio is definitely a force to be reckoned with.

Cheer up! - Myspace Rips

Location - Florida, US
Genre - Emo, Post-Hardcore

I've never had any of their releases in my posession but I did these myspace rips yesterday. It is just all the songs on their myspace player. Fun, (relatively) happy sounding two piece. Check them out if you're into Peter & Craig, At the Drive In, or Red Museum.

Le Temps Des Mobylettes - demo

French screamo band with some musical ADD. songs go from pop punk to grind in seconds.

This video of them has a man running around in a green jumpsuit.

Liturgy - Renihilation

Location - New York, US
Genre - Black Metal

One of the best black metal records I have come across. The drummer's stamina is insane! Apparently on their latest tour they have been playing most of this album, I really can not imagine playing this whole album live being a drummer. Members of Behold the Arctopus. Album is Intense.

The Clancy Six / Vincent Price's Orphan Powered Death Machine - split

Location - Lancaster (PA)/ DC / Baltimore (MD), US
Genre - Grind

Both of these bands have my favorite grind sound. They are passionate, heavy, and metal as fuck. The lyrics are fantastic (especially on VP side) but there is also something fresh/original about the music as well. Personal vinyl rip - quality not a great as preferred. Will post other rips of theirs if requested.

Location - California, US
Genre - math rock, noise rock, indie

Rob Crowe (Pinback, Gobin Cock) and Zach Hill (Hella, Bygones) duet. It is beautiful, it is mathy, it is smooth - exactly what you'd expect out of a perfect pairing of these two.

Kan Kick - Beautiful: Opus of Love, Deeper than Flesh

Location - California , US
Genre - Electronic, Beats, Rap

Kan Kick's beats are so layered; he is quite a master of the art. Enjoy this marvelous album.

Free the Robots - s/t EP

Location - California, US
Genre - Electronic, Beats, Jazz

I listen to lots of jazz influenced hip hop which directly leads into jazz influenced beats. This is one of my favorites.

Robinson - The Great City

Location - Ohio, US
Genre - Grind

The most extreme, powerful, apocalyptic, yet beautifully serenading Grind band. 6 was my initial love, 7 became so while posting this actually. Fantastic album, one of my personal favorite grind albums. The vocal production on this album is so unbelievably harsh but is able to sit in the mix very well, love it! The demo is great as well.

PIg Destroyer - Prowler in the Yard

Location - Virginia, US
Genre - Deathgrind

One of the best albums in the genre. Hyperviolet, Ghost of a Bullet, and Pornographic Memory are by far some of my most favorite grind songs. If you haven't, read the lyrics for this album, they are simply superb! Pig Destroyer - the most poetic of all grind bands! (besides maybe Discordance Axis).

Maths - Descent

New Maths. Get it now.

Edit: Descent is one of the greatest albums of its genre I've ever heard.

Pedro The Lion - Control


Wikipedia is better at explaining than I am :

   Pedro the Lion was an indie rock band from Seattle, Washington. Formed by singer-songwriter David Bazan in 1995, he represented the main creative force of the band, backed by a rotation of various collaborating musicians. T. W. Walsh is considered to be the sole official band member besides Bazan. In 2006, Bazan and Walsh split amicably and Pedro the Lion was dissolved as Bazan went solo. Releasing four full-length albums and five EPs over 11 years, the band was known for its first person narrative lyrics with political and religious themes.

   This is my favorite Pedro The Lion album

Location - Philly, US
Genre - Emo / Post-Rock

Great post-rock influenced emo band. Have put out more releases than I realized - I have only really ever had their split w/ Violent Breakfast which is marvelous, and two of the lps; however, I am sure the rest is great too. For fans of Envy, Belle Epoque, City of Caterpillar.

Nervous Sex - Creep Sea

Location - Philly, US
Genre - Noise, Hardcore, Grind

Creep Sea is such a solid EP, definitely one of my top favorites from the past few years. The noise elements and incorporation make this album much more behemoth than it would otherwise. That is not to down-speak the instrumentation, i'm o' so into it. Great album played decently loud.

Sorry - Imaginary Friend

Location - Massachusetts
Genre - Hardcore / Emo / Post-punk

Although this album came out in 84' I feel like it has a very emo sound to it. It is definitely post-punk influenced with tracks like "Why do I have to look at you?" Mainly this is a really odd hardcore album when hardcore hit it's first experimentation era. Kick ass lp though.

Sinaloa - self titled

Location - Somerville, Massachusetts
Genre - Emo

One of my favorite bands with a very unannounced and quiet release. There really wasn't too much talk about this one; all of a sudden one day they had a new 4 song 12". I just found out about it today and found one link. I guess not too many other people know it is out either. So far it is great. Recorded by them. Still great lyrics and unique.

Extortion / Septic Surge - split

Location - Australia
Genre - Powerviolence / Grind / Doom

One of the better splits I have listened to recently. I am just now listening to Extortion's side (although I figured they would've been first considering they are one of my favorites), however, Septic Surge's side is ace. It is so heavey and just downtempo but still is capable of the fast intensity are the perfect moments. For fans of Crossed Out, Neanderthal

Fuck Buttons - Street Horrrsing

Location - England
Genre - Electronic, Drone, Experimental

If you like beautiful electronic repetitious soundscapes you will love Fuck Buttons. Although my favorite song of theirs is on a later album I decided to post this one because I find the album as a whole more intriguing. There are some pretty serious almost Darkthrone sounding vocals at time, they fit right in. Enjoy.

Fuck On the Beach - Endless Summer

Location - Japan
Genre - Powerviolence

In celebration of the second 81 degree day here in good ol' TN I decided to do some foreshadowing and upload an album in celebration summer itself. Good ol' Japanese Powerviolent Powerhouse Fuck on the Beach with this relentless ear fucking LP. Good shit mane, get into it. Ride on Time is a kick ass doomy track too.
