Roadburn 2014 – Day 3 & Afterburner Review By Saúl Do Caixão

29th April 2014 at 12:26 pm

Roadburn 2014 - Day 3

Three days into the quartet of musical transcendence that is Roadburn and my lungs, liver and ears were beginning to feel the strain, despite the lingering excitement about how good Magma had been the night before (no, I will not shut up about it)….

Tim Hecker / Merzbow-Gustafsson-Pandi Trio @ Oval Space, London 14/04/2014

Coffin Torture

Coffin Torture are a sludgy duo from the great state of South Carolina, and their self titled release is one of three they sent me to listen to. That makes them stand up dudes to begin with, even before I slam their disc into…

27th April 2014 at 10:16 am

Frogskin / Lähdön Aika - Split

The split with these two Finnish bands will not change anyone’s world. That is a given, what it does offer is a taste of the sound these bands produce. They don’t perform live that much, nor do they release tons of records. All the…
