Gotta stay awake...
The Fall Mansion
This Nation's Saving Grace Beggars Banquet 1985
OFF! Slice up the Pie N
Free LSD Fat Possum 2022
Fourth studio LP from the Keith Morris (Black Flag, Circle Jerks) fronted hardcore punk band. The album also serves as the soundtrack to the short art film of the same title by the band, with guest appearances on the film by DH Peligro (Dead Kennedys), David Yow (The Jesus Lizard), Don Bolles (The Germs), and more.
Voivod Holographic Thinking N
Synchro Anarchy Century Media 2022
Latest release (and 15th overall) from the Canadian prog metal band. Heavy sci-fi elements throughout, as marks much of Voivod's work. I prefer them to Rush.
The Jesus Lizard Chrome
Bang Touch and Go Records 2000
Influential 90s noise rock four-piece based out of Chicago. The band's third studio LP Liar celebrates its 30th anniversary this month!
Cherubs Mr. Goy
Heroin Man Trance Syndicate 1994
Texan noise rock band. Disbanded prior to the release of this LP, since reunited and have pumped out additional albums. A personal record for the band, recorded in memory of a close personal friend that passed away.
Love's Miracle Ipecac Recordings 2007
Though Los ANgeles based noise-rock two-piece Qui released a couple of LPs, this is the only one recorded as a three-piece, with David Yow of The Jesus Lizard on vocals.
Gluey Porch Treatments Ipecac 1987
Debut LP from the still active sludge legends. This song was originally penned by Green River and gifted to the Melvins as Green River never played it.
Saint Vitus White Stallions
The Walking Dead / Hallow's Victim SST Records 1985
Despite being SST labelmates with iconic punk bands of the era - and sharing the stage with many of them - Saint Vitus was clearly a doom metal band, with a sound not out of place within the discography of sludgy Black Flag and early Flipper.
City of Caterpillar Voiceless Prophets N
Mystic Sisters Relapse Records 2022
Newest release from this Richmond band that had been on hiatus for 20 years. Classified as "screamo" at the time of its original existence. I don't know what that is.
Russian Circles Tupilak N
Gnosis Sargent House 2022
Post-metal instrumental band from Chicago. Shout-out to DJ El Toro; first heard this band on his KXCI show Inside/Out.
The End of Radio Touch and Go Records 2019
Two disc/vinyl compilation from the powerhouse trio of Steve Albini, Bob Weston, and Scott Trainer. Disc 1 collects cuts recorded in 1994 for John Peel's BBC sessions, with disc 2 collecting cuts recorded ten years later.
Wire Hard Currency
Object 47 P-Vine NonStop 2008
The "Object 47" referenced by the long-standing English post-punk band's title is this LP, Wire's 47th piece of music officially released by the band.
Fugazi Two Beats Off
Repeater & 3 Songs Dischord 1990
This is the album that turned me on to Fugazi, indie music, and expanded my musical horizons. In my Desert Island Top Ten.
Hum Suicide Machine
You'd Prefer an Astronaut RCA Records Label 1995
Debut LP from this 90s alternative rock band, with a sprinkling of shoegaze influence thrown in for good measure. The band saw commercial success wit the single "Stars" included on this release, later heard on soundtracks, commercials, and an episode of Beavis and Butt-head.
Loop Aurora N
Sonancy Cooking Vinyl Limited 2022
Noisy space-rock English band LOOP has released its latest album following a three decade hiatus! From the get-go, this LP has LOOP picking up where it left off with 1990's Gilded Eternity.
TV Priest Bury Me in My Shoes N
My Other People Sub Pop Records 2022
Second studio LP from this English post-punk band. First heard it on The Home Stretch; shout out to Hannah Levin for turning me on to the band.
My Bloody Valentine Soon
Loveless Rhino/Warner Records 1991
Much written about highlight of the shoegaze genre. Lyrics were indecipherable upon its release, despite the band claiming it spent more time writing lyrics than the music itself. Some bandmembers claim they don't know what was being sung despite this!
VR SEX Walk of Fame N
Rough Dimension Dais Records 2022
Latest release from this Los Angeles-based experimental post-punk act. Think it's going to crack my Top Ten of 2022...
Interpol Fables N
The Other Side of Make-Believe Matador 2022
Seventh studio LP from the Manhattan-based modern post-punk band active since 2002. The band cites this cut as a personal favorite off this LP.
Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds Hallelujah (2011 Remastered Edition)
No More Shall We Part (2011 Remastered Edition) Mute, a BMG Company 2001
11th studio LP from the group and follow up to The Boatman's Call, recorded after Nick Cave's treatment for alcohol and heroin addiction. My favorite from Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds. Pulls at my emotional heartstrings.
Mick Harvey Sad Dark Eyes
Two of Diamonds Mute 2007
Long-time collaborator with Nick Cave. Prolific songwriter in his own right, with several solo albums (this being his fourth) and independent film soundtracks.
