Part Chimp IV The fourth album from London's noise-rock band Part Chimp, heavy and searingly distorted guitars that follow on from the bands's last release back in 2009 titled Thriller, these are huge Goliath riffs with howling vocals that is evidence that the short hiatus has not interfered with the band's musicianship and love for creating ear-deafening songs. For fans of Swans, Mogwai, Melvins and Black Sabbath. The four piece have never done anything in half-measures. With a keen focus on intelligent song craft and dynamics, they have earned a reputation for being one of the most influential bands operating in the noise/stoner rock sphere in the past decade, establishing themselves as a crucial, if physically damaging, live experience to behold. - The Quietus Rock Action Records CD | LP

The Twilight Sad Videograms A 10" single from the awesome Scottish band The Twilight Sad, taken from their 2018 album It Won/t Be Like This All the Time. “Videograms”, which carries the Cure’s influence in its colorful synth arrangements. The driving, pummeling percussion paired with Graham’s unsettling wail do well to cement the track in the Twilight Sad’s comfort zone. “‘Videograms’ was the first song written for the album but the last song finished before we went in to record,” Graham said. “It’s one of the most melodic things we’ve done. Since writing the song I’ve heard the phrase ‘don’t you start on me’ whilst walking down the street, in the supermarket, in the pub. It must have been something that I’d heard a lot that stuck with me and came out in this song.” Rock Action Records 10"
