Silk Leash

“People are really clever when things are left with empty spaces to fill in” – Shalin.

Ilia Gorovitz

“I always appreciate an artist more when I know he does a lot by himself and also it helps you understand the mind of that artist better”


“Our sound has changed quite a lot since we started, it’s always been about making the most noise from two people but before it was a lot more punk influenced.”

Sex Swing – Type II

That’s the kind of relentless, punishing, takes no prisoners music I want to hear.

Group A – Circulation

“the band that would perform at the warehouse rave in hell”.

Radar Men From The Moon – The Bestial Light

The Bestial Light has to be one of the most brilliantly deranged pieces of music I’ve ever heard.

Blóm – Flower Violence

Flower Violence is a relentless debut for what is clearly a very formidable new band, I look forward to seeing Blóm experiment with their sound in their next release and in their live performances.

Knifedoutofexistence – Fragility

Knifedoutofexistence churns out albums of noise like hot dinners and still manages to cut to my core as though it was second nature.

Bruxa Maria – The Maddening

This album is fucking repulsive and I love it.

Casual Nun – Resort For Dead Desires

“There’s an engrossing level of intrigue that will lend itself to many further listens and a more than ample level of riffage for me to blast tracks such as the climatic ‘Φυλαχτό’ on repeat”

Luminous Bodies – Nah Nah Nah, Yeh Yeh Yeh

I dare say they’re even more formidable on this record because you can hear exactly what they’re beating you around the skull with.

Interview: Kunal Singhal and 10 years of Chaos

Ten years of face-melters, jazz odysseys and genre-defying avant-garde exhibitions later, the legend that is Kunal Singhal is preparing another all-day spectacular featuring some of his most enthralling bookings to date. Ahead of the Chaos Theory Festi …

Knifedoutofexistence – Cracks Below the Surface

Cracks Below The Surface is an excellent noise album that dead-eyed commuters and nocturnal voidlings will surely enjoy as a satisfying aid to a cerebral black hole.

Gnoomes – MU!

The thing about Gnoomes though is that, as a band, they’re a uniquely melon-twisting experience. They’re equally as psychedelic and narcotic as the rest of Rocket Recording’s roster and yet, they sound like none of the other bands.

Her Name is Calla – Animal Choir

Animal Choir is a masterpiece and should be considered a foremost contender for everyone’s album of the year and beyond.

Terminal Cheesecake – Le Sacre Du Lièvre

It’s not a supergroup, it’s a heritage, it’s like a proverbial mount rushmore for the psyche scene us fresh faced lysergic twits thought had just sprung from the ground like mushrooms from a spore kit.

Burning Axis – S/T

” It feels like the band is jamming my face in a paper shredder and I’m weirdly into it. It certainly makes it seem as though the slow burn was worth the wait”.

Soft Issues – Soft Issues

“When you want to make something that depends on extreme emotions, make sure you really feel something and that you’re not just too afraid to turn a magnifying glass on yourself because people will know. Soft Issues are the real deal”.

Sly and The Family Drone – Gentle Persuaders

“This record almost seems to renounce itself, what is the point of the individual songs? Sly and The Family Drone focus on the immediate and spontaneous, they’re a band well-known for handing out instruments to the audience to play wild and spontaneous improvised sets. It makes me wonder if this album is almost a critique of the demand for a recorded artefact from a band so, renowned for what they do in the now”.

We Wild Blood – Blood/Money

I think on a simple level the band has crafted a cohesive, facemelter of an album that takes the listener through a variety of styles and directions.

Egodeath, Exploration and Psychedelia: Oneida • Mugstar • We Wild Blood – The Oslo, Hackney

“This gig was a fucking a dream come true”
