obnox - louder space

SO I STARTED WRITING MY BEST OF LIST FOR THE YEAR ALREADY AND IT GOES.... OBNOX..... OBNOX.... OBNOX!!!!!!!!!!!!  YES!!!!!!!   and i bet yer list will look the same as soon as you hear his new album LOUDER SPACE out now via 12XU RECORDS!!!!!!!!!!!!

OBNOX has been on a well documented tear these past two years, that everyone knows, but what few people realize is how bad BIM is making everyone else look.......(think of any just OK indie RnR band now).....  and LOUDER SPACE just knocks everyone else outta the park...(if these other bands were even in the same ballpark to begin with...)....

OBNOX has turned everything up to 11 on his new lp, the layers and layers of blown out RnR are even more GNARLY AND INFECTIOUS, the razorsharp melodies are EVEN MORE INJURY CAUSING and the songs are all but guaranteed to MELT YER FUCKING MIND..........  and if you thought OBNOX was a just a one man garage punk wrecking ball in person, LOUDER SPACE proves that once a full studio is at his disposal the SONIC VOODOO he is capable of has NO MATCH!!!!!!!!  

and though this album is tacitly GARAGE PUNK in genre, it incorporates and warps OHIO PUNK, RUSTBELT R&B, AMPED UP GARAGE, NOISY PSYCH AND EVEN HIPHOP INSPIRED FUNK through BIM's wildly creative and disruptive mind, leaving you with an album LOUD, HARD HITTING AND ALL OF ITS OWN CLASS.........  

so though even more words could be typed, but the low down is this -
YOU JUST FUCKING NEED THIS LP EVEN IF YOU DON'T REALIZE IT YET!!!!!!!!!!!!

LOUDER SPACE IS RECOMMENDED TIMES INFINITY.

SO LISTEN TO A FEW TRACK OFF LOUDER SPACE BELOW,  and grab one NOW from 12XU !!!!!!!!!!

flipper - generic flipper

FLIPPER's first album, GENERIC FLIPPER, is one of the most menacing, swampy, feedback & mud caked rock n roll albums of all time and if you haven't it heard it yet, NOW IS THE TIME!!!!!!!!!

seriously they took punk rock, which at the time was calcifying into a simple loud/fast hardcore formula, into whole new noise damaged, warped directions......and to say that countless bands cite GENERIC FLIPPER as an inspiration doesn't come close to how insanely killer FLIPPER's debut lp was and still is.........

their first three albums are all CLASSIC, but GENERIC FLIPPER is one of my hands down favorite spins of all time.........

so crank up yer stereo and listen to GENERIC FLIPPER below -

ono - diegesis

chicago's gospel-meets-noise art punks ONO are back with a brand new album, DIEGESIS, out via MONIKER RECORDS.  so you better let yer ears expand their consciousness now, cuz this is one wild genre-bending, cosmic post punk ride!!!!!!!

ONO formed during the early days of the chicago punk scene but always had a more experimental goal in mind than louder, faster, dumber.....  their sound is a mix of throbbing post punk, noise coated gospel chanting, pre industrial droning and punk rock attitude of throwing everything out the window.......  after their initial run of two album, ONO went into hibernation......until recently.....  in 2012 they released a new album, ALBINO and showed the world what they were doing back in the 80s, still sounds fresh and avant even today.......   and when ALBINO hit the shelves i couldn't say enough kind words about ONO (click here for that review).....and that would've been enough..... ONO could've retreated once more and left the world a better place.....

however they weren't down blowing minds yet.... HENCE DIEGESIS....... further articulating their cryptic political, tonal and spiritual mission, their new album is even more entrancing and perspective changing........    at times treading the same avant blues ground of CAPTAIN BEEFHEART, the sonic desolation of THROBBING GRISTLE, the post punk implosion of THIS HEAT, the no wave rejection of TEENAGE JESUS AND THE JERKS and the all out search for a new meaningful form of music as THE ART ENSEMBLE OF CHICAGO, ONO is leaping beyond what can even be called art punk or noisy post punk........ and boundary pushing is alway a good thing.......

sure these days with yer nice little sub genres and yer crowd pleasing reliable-as-ever cliches, RnR this out there might not gain much attention or creditability.......  sure its weird and dark and subversive......but at exactly times like this do we need an album like DIEGESIS.......  

things are afoot and you need to be tuned into the right vibrations.........  and i guarantee you won't heard another experimental RnR album that'll grab you like this all year long.......

so listen to the first track off DIEGESIS below,
  and click here to stream the whole lp over at the chicago reader!!!!!

and yeah, go here to grab a copy from MONIKER here!!!!!



and yes get converted by watching ONO live below -
