“The Post-Trash 60” is a guide to some (60) of our favorite releases so far with a diverse range of rock music’s many sub-genres and hip-hop, from extreme metal to lo-fi bedroom pop and all that falls between. We’ve got “buzz bands” worth the buzz, self-released hidden-gems, all the weird international post-punk and noise rock you could ever want, and of course all the artistic punk influenced indie we know and love.
Their new album Leg is an irreverent kaleidoscope of noise rock, post-hardcore, musique concrete, spoken word, chamber music, and general auditory mayhem. The thing about this record is how its tone can change on the head of a dime, despite the songwriting heavily using repetition and slow development of ideas.
This week we’re just excited to share some new music. We’re always excited to share new music but this time the whole group got so excited we completely forgot about our topic. Hosts Nick Dooley and Dan Goldin were joined by Brooklyn’s bcc: as they got ready to record their debut album in the studio. There’s great music from Uranium Club, Beige Palace, Editrix, Sharkmuffin, Furbie, and David Nance, plus a special performance from bcc:
On “Illegal Backflip,” the trio slink through a sparse and desolate rhythm, dragging itself forward with mangled guitar tones and a polyrhythmic beat delivered at a stuttered pacing. There’s a degree of Slint, a touch of June of 44, and even maybe a few Kong references in the slow sprawl and detached progressions, but Beige Palace create disorienting punk in their own primal way.
