Check Out Reviews of Moonface, Machinedrum, Dead and Divine, and More in Our New Release Roundup
Published Aug 02, 2011It's that time of the week again, when you hit up your favourite music vendor and scour their most recent haul of new releases. If you're unsure of where to start then check out our Recently Reviewed section for an idea of what this week has to offer and what you should be spending those hard-earned dollars on. Here are some highlights of what you'll find there.
To get things rolling, while Wolf Parade is on hiatus, fans can get their Spencer Krug fix with the debut album from his Moonface side-project. The five tracks on Organ Music Not Vibraphone Like I'd Hoped are lengthy and brooding but check out our review to see if they retain that distinctive Krug sound. Then there's the latest musical offering from the Brooklyn-based Machinedrum. With the recent sound aligning itself more closely with "post-modern production styles," the influences on Room(s) remain diverse.
This week also caters heavily to music releases from well-known punk and metal artists. Psychobilly veterans Necromantix present What Happens In Hell, Stays In Hell, while Bury Your Dead welcome back original singer Mat Bruso and offer up their sixth full-length Mosh'n'Roll.
Earning themselves an Exclaim! Mark of Excellence, Flourishing combine grindcore and the technicality familiar to death metal on The Sum of All Fossils, the anticipated follow-up to last year's debut EP. Lastly, fans of Canadian outfit Dead and Divine can rejoice, with the release of their anticipated third album, Antimacy. Check out the review to see how the record compares to their previous repertoire.
