No one knows when they’re young

This weeks incoming

As usual a serious amount of new material has been delivered here at Aural Delights HQ over the last week so there has not been much time for considered reviewing.

Three pre-release tracks from the new Sallie Ford album “Slapback” have arrived and they sound fantastic. The sound is a little more raw and increases the anticipation for the full release on October 13th.

I finally got around to purchasing the excellent album from My Little Brother “If we never came down” which is marvellous. I featured the band on the radio show a couple of years back and i’ve been meaning to get hold of the release – glad I did it’s fantastic.

My appreciation of the new Trojan Horse album “A World Turned Upside Down” is reflected in an interview with Nick Duke from the band on the Studeo Blog. Suffice to say that the quartet have overcome the “difficult second album” hurdle with some ease and have created something genuinely groundbreaking. Links and stuff are in the review in the other place. I also put together a special podcast to celebrate the album launch which features old and new material from the band as well as each band members musical favourites plus a few of my own choices to break up the mix.

Aural Delights Podcast reaches it’s 100th edition in a couple of weeks so I’ve been putting my mind to how I might celebrate that milestone – pending that here is the latest edition

The new metal and garage music keeps flowing and there have been some remarkable releases which I just have not had chance to write about so I’ll let the Sonic Attack Podcast  tell the story – although I will point out the new OHHMS album as a bit of a highlight

And here’s some quick one-lines on the rest of the new material…..all of which should be appearing on future podcasts at some point…..

Cable35 – Coconut Supply (Single) Free Download from Website – Out Now

Taken from the Fungus EP which was out earlier in the year. Fresh neo-grunge sound with a hint of Sonic Youth, Excellent

Roses Never Fade – Devil Dust (Album) Neuropa – Out Now

Remarkable mix of ambient textures and moody acoustic strumming with dark, brooding vocals. Featuring Ancient Wisdom’s Nathan Opposition, The Way To Light’s Austin Rathmell and Pale Creation’s Nick Fiction. Impressive.

Godflesh – A World Lit Only By Fire (Album) Avalanche Records – 6th October 2014

Slightly disappointing in that there is nothing new of note. The usual industrial metal tropes are here and it’s all delivered very well but I could have done with a bit of development maybe.

Positronik – Better Late Than Never (Album) German Shepherd Records – 17th October 2014

Post split compilation of the majority of their recordings. High quality soul-pop with electronica elements.

Dope Body – Lifer (Album) Drag City – 20th October 2014

Impressive second outing for this Baltimore Quartet. Excellent rock/punk and contender for album of the year.

Annhilated – XIII Steps to ruination (Album) Unique Leader – 28th October 2014

Debut, full length intense and unforgiving death metal with some technical elements

Atomzero – Surface (Single) Analogue Trash – release date unknown

Post punk electronica in an Ultravox and that ilk style, but with a touch of Moroder

Monster Jaw – Monster Jaw (EP) Cobra Kitten Records – 27th October 2014

Pop flecked ear-worm in an indie package – vocals seem a bit low in the mix, but good for all that

Surburban Myth – Crashed and Burned (Single) Self Released – 31st October 2014

One of those tunes which has a great verse but a disappointing chorus. The second single taken from the band’s debut Album ‘Welcome (If Only)’.

Public Service Broadcasting – The Race for Space (Album) Cargo – 23rd February 2015

A Teaser video for the new album, which is a long way off, looks to continue the work to date, I hope they will have developed some of there elements to freshen up the sound.

and finally a little treat with the new video from Le Butcherettes…..
