XOX is a band from Louisville, Kentucky in which layers of synth smother a drum and bass hypno-fury while screams, grunts, and gasps desperately escape the miasma.
Crawling out of the deep, dark hole they dug for themselves on Bottom Feeder (2011) and Sweaty Hands (2012), New York City’s premier psychedelic swamp rock unit DEGREASER are set to take an unsuspecting and tepid rock scene by storm. Courtesy of NYC’s Ever/Never Records, their new record Rougher Squalor is DEGREASER 2.0. The band has evolved from their previous caveman dirges into a true power trio, heavy on the muscle and out for blood. Drawing inspiration from classic bands like Blue Cheer, The Groundhogs and Coloured Balls, to outer-limits rock deconstruction reminiscent of the finest Japanese ensembles such as Mainliner and High Rise, DEGREASER are able to satisfy the need to bang your head, and also the desire to immerse said head in glorious waves of wah-wah pedal abuse. The ‘squalor’ part of the title is no joke, as main ‘Greaser Tim Evans – formerly of noted Aussie band Bird Blobs – drenches the proceedings in a sheen of speaker-shredding noise that would make the likes of The Stooges' James Williamson sit up and take notice. Anchored by the granite-solid rhythm section of drummer John Coates and bassist Kristian Brenchley (Woman/Ballroom), Evans is free to blast his surroundings with all manner of ear-piercing and –tickling tones.
Former singer of Brooklyn post-punk bands Family Curse and Golden Error, Erick Bradshaw H dives into the deep end of primitive electronic squall and suitably paranoid vocal manipulations with his new project, CYANIDE TOOTH. Recalling early masters of the exposed nerve -- Cabaret Voltaire, Whitehouse, Sprung Aus Den Wolken -- CYANIDE TOOTH reminds you that the Cold War is still raging and our destructions are all mutually assured.
