Greate albums that cought Viktor’s attention in May
On Top of the Stack May 2020
Show Me The Blueprints by Days N Daze
Days and Daze have on this album perfected their formula of pedal to the metal skate-punk arranged in bluegrass clothing. On Show Me the Blueprints the energy is tangible enough to hit you in the face, in a nice way, like.
Dream Hunting in the Valley of the In-Between by Man Man
Believe the hype! Kattner’s best since The Man in the Blue Turban. Theatrical indie like we like it.
Tari Pemusnah Kuasa by Sial
Best punk band in all of Singapore. This little gem of an album is even more ferocious than their 2018 Binasa EP.
Satan Is King by ACxDC
Is there a Power Violence revival coming, well if it would be anywhere near as good as ACxDC’s Satan Is King I’m sure down for it.
Elä Totuudesta by Kohti Tuhoa
Finnish D-beat punk as only the Finns know how. I consider myself a bit of a connoisseur on the subject and this is a treat.
Lizard Lounge by Barren Womb
A bit of a Scandinavian theme going here as Norway’s best noiserockers bring us some great new material.
Seminar IX: Darkness Of Being by OLD MAN GLOOM
Well Old Man Gloom had to make the list on anticipation alone. They sure didn’t make it an easy listening with some really distracting intros, outros and inbetween cuts but the actual tunes on this one is absolutely OMG-tastic (the other album that accompanied it, not so much)
Strange To Explain by WOODS
Woods has got to be one of the most consistent bands of the past 10-15 years or so. Strange To Explain is no exception. Great LoFi as expected.
Poison River by dominic angelella
Poison River is the first I’ve heard from Angelella but this is absolutely great stuff and I have got to get my teeth in to the rest of his catalogue, right after a few more spins of this gem of an album.
Was Here by Yotam Avni
First full length album from this fairly experienced Israeli DJ. Real Nice to see him flex his compositional muscles in this more realized format after a decade of shorter releases.
Post Modern Motorcade Music by Honey Lung
Mathy British indie that I can get behind.
Record Kicks Funk Soul Sisters by Various Artists
Don’t usually include rare grooves compilations on this list but compilations usually aren’t this good.
