L.S. Dunes ~ Permanent Rebellion [2⊘22]

L.S. Dunes is a ‘Supergroup’ — a more recently christened band made up of highly talented members from other groups. Some succeed so exceedingly well as to eclipse their original groups so mightily we forget they were forged from circumstance, rather than formed by happenstance. The most revered of these being worthy of GOAT Supergroup status (Greatest Of All Time). “Stare,
Neither wait for your arrival, Chastise in the weight of your approval.” What ostensibly began with Cream in the 60s has now exploded with some of the most famous GOATs being Led Zeppelin, … Continue reading L.S. Dunes ~ Permanent Rebellion [2⊘22]

Baby Strange ~ More! More! More! [2⊘2⊘]

More! More! More! Is a slice of relentless punk noise, and it’s fiercely lovable. Catch your breath before you press play, because you’ll be knocked flat in seconds by riffs, infectious hooks and an impossibly inviting beat.

Nicholas Chiari (aka Grabbitz) is a non-stop merry-go-round of catchy wonderous electro-pop sights and sounds that never fails to impress. Like the protagonist in his video, he seems to be driven, nay chased by an alter-ego with breathless abandon, perchance a faceless personification of death or time, and always to new and wildly different heights. Grabbitz’s work has been featured here before with his wall-of-sound … Continue reading Grabbitz ~ The Ugly [2⊘22]

Killing Joke ~ I Am The Virus [2⊘15]

Despite the song’s eerily prescient release nearly five years prior to COVID, Jaz Coleman, frontman for Killing Joke, is an unlikely omniscient and rather perhaps simply wise. The lyrics, more likely to be interpreted as an allegory to our world’s overlords and their ever-present control over our lives – Jaz is an oft believer in several popular conspiracy theories, an occultist, an apparent cigar aficionado (see pic above), and a self-professed … Continue reading Killing Joke ~ I Am The Virus [2⊘15]

Die Antwoord ~ I Fink You Freeky (NSFW) [2⊘12]

Just how to unpack this Pandora’s box of darkly-eclectic gothic-rap-rave splendor… albeit, a treasure trove of years past but still unsurprisingly relevant and dark-culturally significant. “Sexy boys, fancy boys, Playboys, bad boys,
I fink u freeky and I like you a lot” Die Antwoord, meaning “The Answer” in Afrikaans, are the duo of Watkin Tudor “Ninja” Jones and Anri “Yolandi Visser” du Toit (oft accused of being the cause of weird boners) … Continue reading Die Antwoord ~ I Fink You Freeky (NSFW) [2⊘12]
