Possum - "Party Jam" | Post-Trash Premiere

Possum - "Party Jam" | Post-Trash Premiere

Toronto psych punks Possum are set to release their full length debut, Space Grade Assembly, in just a few weeks (June 21st via Garment District), a record that is both swirling with garage rock excess and cosmic basement fuzz. It shreds and shreds, brain cells be damned, bringing to mind early albums from Wand or Meatbodies.

Little Musket - "Dolly Parton" | Post-Trash Premiere

Little Musket - "Dolly Parton" | Post-Trash Premiere

Hailing from Boston, Little Musket started out as the songwriting vehicle for Catherine Conley but has expanded into a full-fledged four piece.  You can expect a big sound with a direct, personal point-of-view.  Little Musket’s upcoming debut record, Fever Blister, is being released by Dadstache Records (Calicoco, Fuzzrod).

Karaoke - "Baby" Video | Post-Trash Premiere

Karaoke - "Baby" Video | Post-Trash Premiere

The song’s slow and ominous introduction is paired perfectly with the video’s lighting, backing out into frame without any sense of urgency. The clip is fantastically off-centered which works together with the song, a dirge of psych tension that opens to primal drums and eventually the surfy bliss of Grace Wayne’s vocals and guitar.

Pinch Points - "Moving Parts" | Album Review

Pinch Points - "Moving Parts" | Album Review

In the midst of the melee of their opening number, “Ouch !,” Pinch Points announce, "Pinch Points are here." Maybe it's the Australian accent, or maybe their tone of voice, but you can't help but feel they're giving you the finger when they say it. That finger does not drop throughout all nine of the songs on their new album, Moving Parts, out on Roolette Records.

Choral Reef - "Gotta Get To Work" | Album Review

Choral Reef - "Gotta Get To Work" | Album Review

Jangly guitars, sharp hi-hats, and the sonic equivalent of that “Oh god, I shouldn’t have had that third cup of coffee” feeling come together flawlessly on Choral Reef’s debut EP. Appropriately titled gotta get to work, the tape energetically confronts the painful reality of what it means to be an artist in a world where your worth is often defined by what you do to make money.

Augustine Esterhammer-Fic - "Things Change / Boo'd Up" | Post-Trash Premiere

Augustine Esterhammer-Fic - "Things Change / Boo'd Up" | Post-Trash Premiere

In this video, Esterhammer-Fic’s powers of arrangement are on full display, as is his vulnerability as an untested artist that is stepping out as a songwriter, in many ways, for the first time. What better way to do that than by showcasing an orchestral reinterpretation of the Grammy Award Winning Certified R&B Banger “Boo’d Up” by Ella Mai.

Constant Mongrel - "Shnuki" | Post-Trash Premiere

Constant Mongrel - "Shnuki" | Post-Trash Premiere

Tempering aggression for something sweeter (but no less biting), “Shnuki” moves bassist Amy Hill (also of Terry) over to lead vocals, with Tom Ridgewell’s vocals closely snapped into place just beneath. The song opens with a razor sharp guitar line, still distorted and tightly wound, but it’s the vocals introduction that dives headfirst into pop uncharted pop-territory.

Spiral Wave Nomads - "Spiral Wave Nomads" | Album Review

Spiral Wave Nomads - "Spiral Wave Nomads" | Album Review

Spiral Wave Nomads reach a little further, drawing influence from free improvisation, jazz, noise, raga, folk, and ambient music, mapping out a vast galaxy of guitar swirls, bass bellows, and drum storms. Eric Hardiman and Michael Kiefer combine their powers to quilt together a delicious menagerie of tunes.

Spencer Radcliffe & Everyone Else - "Hot Spring" | Album Review

Spencer Radcliffe & Everyone Else - "Hot Spring" | Album Review

The singer-songwriter plays his cards with a deep authenticity of authorship and puts his creative soul in dialogue with themes such as death, loneliness, and war. Radcliffe's vision, through the delicate sounds of guitar, cello, and effects created by the eccentric pedals, makes us feel in relation to the earth, to the terrestriality.

Imperial Wax - "Gastwerk Saboteurs" | Album Review

Imperial Wax - "Gastwerk Saboteurs" | Album Review

Over the course of eleven years and six albums, Keiron Melling, Dave Spurr, and Pete Greenway formed behind Mark E. Smith as the final and longest iteration of The Fall. After Smith’s passing, they recruited Sam Curran for vocal duties and formed Imperial Wax, the name being a nod to the first album they all played on together as The Fall, and have put out their first album Gastwerk Saboteurs.
