Teardrop-Factory-Thrash-In-The-HeartScuzz duo Teardrop Factory continue their guitar-noise assault with the release of their debut long player ‘Thrash In The Heart’.

Kicking off with louder than hell ‘3AM Coke Dream’, the template is set for what is about to be a pretty extreme record. With its low slung riffs and pounding bass-lines, it’s brimming with attitude. There is nothing about this band that even wants you to like them. Second track in, ‘Bleed’ is full of noisy detail, with vocals just out of reach of the listener. The emphasis of the whole record is on snarling guitars and the wall-of-sound they create. The frequencies Teardrop Factory generate on each track is astounding. Continue reading

Cold Pumas - Persisten MalaiseBrighton-based Cold Pumas have been around for a while and have recently released their debut long-player, ‘Persistent Malaise’. Their sound is rooted in dirty guitars, looped riffs, inaudible vocals, and all of it aching with cool. It’s difficult to listen to this record without making some very big comparisons with the likes of The Jesus and Mary Chain and just about any of the bands associated with the early ‘90s Shoegazing scene. There are many similarities to be made, but Cold Pumas have managed to create a sound all of their own. In keeping with the bands who clearly inspired them, they take themselves very seriously, and they personify the type of lazy cool you don’t often find these days. Continue reading
