Streaming Sunday time again! Meet the Mysterious Swaai Boys, a New York band that sounds like they yearn to go back to Hawaii. Good stuff that falls more in the category of surf pop than rock, quite relaxing and perfect for the mellow Sunday session, 89%.
Today we have a Lustration’s Psymbolik, a full length album released last year.
I found this over at OnlyAnalogIsReal, an Australian blackened/thrash metal band, this is their debut album and it is incredible. A metal masterpiece with an actual drummer!
I’m so tired of the damn drum machines, true, they have their place, but it is refreshing to hear new black metal being playing fast and loud. The entire band plays well together and this is defiantly one of the best metal albums to come out recently with analog production, excellent guitar riffs and blast beats, highly recommended, 92%.
Not from this album, but here is a live video
Today we have a live recording of Dead Meadow from a show back in 2006, the first track starts off slow with the still band warming up and gradually eases into the first song.
I really enjoy live albums because often they are similar to band practice in the sense that occasionally the sound is phenomenal because the band is just together and playing really well that night. This is evidently from their tour with Dinosaur Jr, the sound is a bit low, but that’s about the only detraction, defiantly one for the live collection, 90%.
