Again and again and again (and again). Five more, five more music things, another five? Already? Alright already? You never answered the question, you never do, why is that? Poor what? Who? Where’s did we put the plot? Dive? Five more pieces of earfood? Shall we do it again? Back to back to back being back to the five musical things thing and the fractured music portal yet again (and again and again) and yeah, we did say all this last week and this is a test and the weeks before and blah blah blah while the whole world window and no, we never do and the proof of the pudding and all that proof reading. It doesn’t really matter if it was a television fizzing and going off and things back then when we first heard of the Window going off and things. and like we did ask last time, does anyone bother reading the editorial? Does anyone ever actually look down the rabbit hole or is it all just method acting? Cut to the chase, there’s loads of music further down the page, well five or so pieces of music, cut to the damn chase again…
This five musical things thing is mostly about just that, five musical things that have passed by in the last few days, five sound bites, five slices of musical information along with those oh so vital vital links and signposts staring back and making that hissing noise. You do read all this right? You did read that bit about Bandcamp Friday last time? I see Bandcamp Friday is coming up again. Enough of this, cut the crap you say, I know, on with the music, here comes whatever we have for you this time around, the low spark of high rise whatever… Let the music do the talking, here’s some Stuff and stuff
1: Booker Stardrum – from Los Angeles, California,and a track off the new album, just down there, underneat the words – “For Immediate Release: May, 2021: Today, Percussionist and electronic producer Booker Stardrum shared Bend, a new single of patterned chaos from his forthcoming album CRATER, releasing July 2 via NNA Tapes. “I titled this one ‘Bend’ after my natural relationship to pulse and rhythm, an elastic flow state that I strive to achieve in my playing. I love the feeling of stretching time in and out of groove, stumbling, and snapping back into it. Playing freely is a meditation on listening and awareness, and the embodiment of flexibility. I always attempt to capture these types of moments in my recordings, then enhance them with other gestures in a similar spirit. ‘Bend’ features trumpet bending by the always inspiring Jaimie Branch.”
And here’s a previous album from two or three years back…
2: The Linda Lindas – And and and, it goes it goes it goes, “The youngest member of the Linda Lindas is only 10, and yet the band has already opened for feminist rock trailblazers Bikini Kill and Alice Bag, cameoed in a movie directed by Amy Poehler, and signed to punk label Epitaph Records. Last week, a clip of the quartet performing their snarling original track “Racist, Sexist Boy” at a Los Angeles library as part of an AAPI Heritage Month event exploded online, collecting nearly 4 million views on Twitter so far” – .
3: The Cult of Dom keller have a new album kicking around somewhere if we’re not mistaken (we often are), here’s another single of that album (pretty certain we’re not mistaken). Here you go, we weren’t mistkaen, “‘Infernal Heads’ is lifted from Cult of Dom Keller‘s incoming album ‘They Carried The Dead In A UFO’, due out May 21st on Fuzz Club”
4: Black Ink Stain have a debut album “Incidents” on april the 30th on Atypeek Music, Araki Records, Day Off Records and P.O.G.O. Records. They’re doing the noise rock thing, not a million miles away from Unsane and several hundred others, they do d oit rather well and it is hitting jsut the right spot right now. I don’t know where they’re from, I guess it doesn’t really mattee, it is a universal sound, London, Belgium, Washington DC,everyone needs a noise rock band, every town should have one dropping though in a battered transit van with a man to tell you how “blinding” they are and how they’re nearly as good as Red Eye Express or those Homage Freaks. We like these ink stain noise makers, long live the Bull and Gate and all who sailed in her… here’s the Bandcamp
5: Parasite, from Japan, on a label out of Peru, an album called Metal Punk Massacre that kind of does what it says on the tin. It jsut landed here in out in-boc here in our East London bunker. “Hailing from Japan, Parasite has achieved a cult status within the Asian underground circuit, integrating the visceral attitude of punk with the powerful guitars of metal, creating a devastating sonic tsunami.Ten years after its original publication, ‘Metal Punk Massacre’ stands like a masterpiece of the genre”.
