Velvet lined steam roller tactics mean TROPICAL TRASH’s LP debut UFO Rot descends from the sky straight onto your brain stem. This is potent stuff, meant to be taken in controlled doses. Load the spoon full and heat up gradually. The band has existed for two previous 7”’s but really comes roaring out of the gate with black hat tales and some lineup changes. May very well be the album you use for whatever you do when you are not reading the internet. Instead of trace papering some shadow punks of previous dictatorships, these patriots pull the curtain back and show the emperor sporting some very exotic under carriage, and spew forth tales with cop stashes, Area 51 belly bloat, and new reconfigured mainframe math – this is the new form. Nine condensed blasts of well honed songcraft that really put them at the top of the heap of the rock heap, with paranoid punk, and an eagerness to melt it all down and make it into something bold and badass. Don’t sleep on this one comrade.

Watch the video for Tropical Trash’s “Fat Kid’s Wig,” directed by Robert Beatty, here:

Coliseum

Founded by Louisville musician Ryan Patterson and including Kayhan Vaziri and Carter Wilson, power trio COLISEUM have grown to become one of today’s quintessential contemporary punk bands. Successfully melding progressive musicianship, hardcore fervor, and vital social awareness into one constantly evolving artistic vision. Over the last decade COLISEUM have released music on a host of labels including; Temporary Residence, Relapse, Level Plane, Auxiliary (Ryan’s own label), and Deathwish. Anxiety’s Kiss is the new album from COLISEUM, recorded at The Magpie Cage by producer/engineer J. Robbins (Jawbox, Burning Airlines). Anxiety’s Kiss is a hook-laden maturation of the COLISEUM sound. Nods to their early D-Beat leanings are there, but it is their willingness to embrace Post-Punk melody and explore the space between notes that make Anxiety’s Kiss so alluring. Confidently growing within the punk world, without ever leaving it behind. A flawless, yin and yang pairing that is Coliseum at the peak of their experimental and anthemic powers.

youngwidows

Louisville’s creatively restless dark-rock auteurs YOUNG WIDOWS feature guitars that are enormous, drums that are pummeling, and trademark gut-churning bass that is more jaw-dropping than ever. Disregarding all boundaries and pushing forward with a masterful command of post-punk, noise rock, pseudo industrial, experimental doom, and goth, YOUNG WIDOWS emit the intimidating force of a 10-piece with the heart and soul of a classic power trio.

ChildBite

CHILD BITE is a Detroit-based punk/metal/noise rock band formed in 2005. Currently signed to Phil Anselmo’s Housecore Records as well as Indianapolis-based Joyful Noise Recordings, their music consists of atonal guitar melodies, distorted bass, frequent rhythmic shifts, and frenzied, howling vocals. Their most easily identifiable influences include ’80s hardcore (Black Flag, Dead Kennedys) and ’90s alternative (The Jesus Lizard, Faith No More). Their sound has been described as “enormous and predatory, from the baleful rhythm section to Shawn Knight’s [frightening vocals]” (Fine Print Mag, 2013). CHILD BITE has over a dozen releases of varying lengths, including a triple split 7″ with David Yow & Thurston Moore, as well as a 5″ EP of Anal Cunt songs featuring Phil Anselmo on vocals.

EXACTA CUBE is the electronic improvisational vehicle of Introvert (www.soundcloud.com/introvertmusic) and Nicholas Daniel (www.soundcloud.com/gigasturtz). Intricate textures mashed with complex and evolving rhythms, their debut cassette last year was the first release on the new, Louisville-based City State Tapes label (www.facebook.com/citystatetapes).

“Spend some time in Louisville, Kentucky and you will find it is one of the most unassumingly strange places in America. The ratio of grown folks to millennials in attendance at any rock gig seems roughly 3:1. Such events take place in places like caves and chicken coops, among other nontraditional venues. Hip, transgressive people don’t seem to outgrow hip, transgressive things here; no one seems very eager to settle for a life less weird. Catherine Irwin of the great Louisville/Chicago band Freakwater — who lends her inimitable vocal talents to several tunes on Fantasy Error, the latest album by STATE CHAMPION — once joked that the evergreen nature (no pun intended) of the Louisville scene was due to the dearth of area vocational schools. If an album has been made in this young century that better captures the essence of this burg than Fantasy Error, I haven’t heard it.

STATE CHAMPION‘s punked-up country gunk frequently recalls both the Aristotelian pathos of bands like Souled American and Palace Brothers and the character-driven black humor of indie ironists like Camper Van Beethoven and the Supreme Dicks. Mere homage, however, is not STATE CHAMPION‘s line. Singer and head honcho Ryan Davis is a sharp, astute lyricist, the kind of songwriter who probably gets tired of people asking him why he doesn’t try his hand at short story writing. Indeed, Fantasy Error‘s depictions of postmasters and county coroners, Dickensian drinkers and ‘teardrop pushers’ are as vivid as they are familiar, sung with the conviction of a Drag City-damaged Chris Knight. The musicians provide the perfect foil, loose without trying too terribly hard to appear ‘ramshackle.’ Frayed horsehair bows are dragged across fiddle wire and banjos frail for dear life; fuzzy, unfussy electric guitars bend, scrimmage, and howl while subtle synthesizers interject ominously through the din; even the percussion sounds bleary-eyed and broken-up with.

Fantasy Error is a great rock and roll record, equal parts Springsteen and noise scene, as American as broken traffic lights and bad trips.

Spawned from the formidable Louisville, Kentucky collective known as Black Velvet Fuckere, SAPAT resides as the centrifugal force in this Midwestern psychedelic madrigal set in the psychosexual backwaters of the mighty Ohio River. For the entirety of the ‘00 decade, members have kept busy collaborating with and/or massaging the egos of various and sundry avant-pontiffs such as Robert Fripp, Magik Markers, Dead Child and Eugene Chadbourne – when not honing the orgone energy of SAPAT. Their most recent LP, A Posthuman Guide to the Advent Calendar Origins of the Peep Show, was released last fall on Sophomore Lounge Records.

Origins of the Peep Show, on Sophomore Lounge Records!

Limbo as the space between heaven and hell where unblessed babies float, sighing; limbo as the supple-spined Calypsonian dance craze: here exists The Immoralist, the new record by ELISA AMBROGIO. The Immoralist lies at the wicked crossroads of Wilson Pickett’s electric wail and the sweetest of Wilson Phillips harmonies.

Watch the video for ELISA AMBROGIO‘s “Superstitious” here:

The seven songs on NATHAN BOWLES‘ new album Nansemond deploy banjo, percussion, piano (his childhood instrument), tapes, and — for the first time — his robust voice to explore the rugged country between the poles of Appalachian old-time traditions and ecstatic, minimalist drone, moving effortlessly between composed sections, improvised passages, and field recordings. This forking-path approach follows his wide-ranging work as an ensemble player with the Black Twig Pickers (banjo, percussion), Pelt (struck and bowed percussion), Steve Gunn (drums, piano, banjo), Hiss Golden Messenger (banjo), Jack Rose, and others. For this record, he has assembled a sensitive group of collaborators from beyond the rosters of those groups: Tom Carter (guitar), Joe Dejarnette (guitar), Steve Kruger (fiddle, voice), and Jason Meagher of Black Dirt Studio (recording, production, mixing.)

Watch NATHAN BOWLES play “Sleepy Lake Tire Swing” here:

CHAMPION ZOZ is the duo of Ryan Davis (State Champion, Tropical Trash) and MA Turner (MA Turner’s Fatubyfairfe, Cross, Salad Influence, Warmer Milks), here making their Louisville debut on their debut tour!

SEA HERO is an instrumental band from Louisville, Kentucky that creates “an ebb and flow of noise and harmony.” SEA HERO recently finished recording their third album at Kevin Ratterman’s La La Land studio, to be released in 2015.

BLACK STATIC LINE is a Louisville, Kentucky & Nashville, Tennessee-based space-rock band that experiments with slow tempos at light speed echoing off the nearest galaxy. Beginning as a noise project in 2002,  BLACK STATIC LINE has evolved into its present quartet format, with Cole Street (Hollow Ox) at the helm on guitar and vocals, Devin Lamp (The Ascent of Everest) on bass, Corey Taylor (The Ascent of Everest) on lap steel and Matt Bach (Dave Cloud and the Gospel of Power) on drums. On their brand-new sophomore release Enlil (Meltface Records), the band delves into a beautiful dream of outer-space aided by soaring vocals, whale song-sounding steel licks, crushing bass fuzz, and shimmering guitar melodies.

NEW BRAVADO returns to us from atop a golden star making golden showers of golden acid on our brown, dirty heads. Blueing and blacking, this band has appreciated further time travels, backpassing Sabbath and instead bounding into the heavy psych and power fuzz of the 60s, whence came Eden’s Children, Banshee, Lincoln Street Exit.” –American Gloam

KILLER MOON is a psychedelic journey of three friends throughout the best years and times of our lives, reflected within our music. We are chasing a high mountain one that will enrich our souls, and make us better people and musicians. Our journey is one of love, anger, pain, sweat, and blood. Psychedelic jam band with classic rock and doomy sludge undertones. Extended instrumentals paired with ambient vocals make KILLER MOON a must see for anyone looking to expand their mind and musical horizons.

MIMI VON SCHNITZL began on four-track by J.Glenn — a.k.a. Mimi Von — in the summer of 2005. The spring of 2011 brought new life on keyboards from Rory Hanka creating swaths of colour from a Hammond and Korg. Andy Matter soon rounded out the sound with his 21-fret bass guitar named Belmont. Floating through the stratosphere as a three-piece, playing the occasional live gig with friends setting in to fill out the sound, MVS began recording as a three piece at Kent O’Bryan’s Wax and Tape Recording Studio in the winter of 2012. The sessions yielded half of the tracks that would become the debut MVS album. Expert circuit bender/guitar pedal builder Jace Stone was invited to shred an electric guitar solo on “Jenkum Jam.” a song on “Head Cleaner: A Louisville Music Compilation” by Gubbey records in 2013, and he has been with the outfit ever since. Following a fine tuning of the songs at Rory’s digs in Clarksville, IN, MVS would return to Wax and Tape as a four piece in 2014 to flesh out its first album to completion.

Watch the video for MIMI VON SCHNITZL‘s “Mass of Matter” here:

TEMPLE OF THE GOLDEN DAWN: Spiritual awakenings through low-frequency bombardment as well as transcendental mind expansion using electric four- and six-string techniques.
