watch Double Grave "Laetitia" via Post-Trash + new 7" EP "Empty Hands"

very very happy to announce our next record, Double Grave's new 7" EP Empty Hands, due out April 27th! the first song off of the EP is "Laetitia" which the wonderful folks at Post-Trash were kind enough to premiere! we're doing this release as a shared release with new friends over at Forged Artifacts. they're handling the cassettes, we're handling the vinyl.

Dan G says: "First single "Laetitia" is packed with sun soaked melodies, the guitars ranging from blistering to aggressively scrappy. The thing cracks with each dense hit, a pummeling bit of grinding noise-pop-centric fun, each new distorted layer more glorious than the last. The syrupy vocals stretch out with each syllable, pulling gently like slow drying glue. The video captures the band playing underwater (probably not recommended for your instruments) as the lyrics move across the screen with animations that waver in the tide. The songs addresses our current political climate and the inability to escape it all."

hell yeah! you can read the rest of the piece here:

stream Tundrastomper's new EP "Clean It Up" via Post-Trash

we're thrilled to be sharing a full stream of Tundrastomper's new EP Clean It Up via the incredible folks at Post-Trash today. Clean It Up finds Tundra in full go-mode, full of their chaotic brand of beauty, never calm but always fascinating.

Dan Goldin says: From the first shuffling moments of album opener "Sweet Baby Boy" to the close of "Patch It Up," the band opt out of playing it "cool," instead indulging the listener (and themselves) with a blizzard of convulsing rhythms and guitars that cut directly through the tangled splendor. Sonic freakouts abound, and every song takes its own approach to their madness. "Sweet Baby Boy" has a collapsing free jazz vibe, dropping in and out of technical bliss (seriously, the rhythm section is unbelievable), switching between tempos and movements in the blink of an eye. "How Very Nice" opts for a deranged sort of pop approach, grinding out liquid rhythms and elastic riffs with a sunny vibe, occasionally taking an opportunity to smash everything directly into a wall or two."
