Three Trapped Tigers Silent Earthing The second full-length from Three Trapped Tigers chaotic, mind-melting instrumental post-math-electronica-jazz-rock! For the unacquainted, Three Trapped Tigers are a band for which genres labels struggle to keep up, they move –often at breakneck speed - from screeching, effect-laden guitars, an arsenal of glistening sci-fi synths, pummelling sub-bass, colossal riffs and audacious drum patterns that both underpin and define their unique sound.

Vennart The Demon Joke Special edition gatefold CD; 180g vinyl LP. Debut solo album from former Oceansize man and Biffy Clyro touring guitarist Mike Vennart. Steve Durose and Richard Ingram of Oceansize also appear! While on tour with the Biffy, Vennart created first vocal melodies and fragments of songs in hotel rooms around the globe, which at a later stage were transformed by Steve Durose (Oceansize) into actual demos. Recorded at Vennart’s own studio with Durose, Richard Ingram (Oceansize), drummer Denzel and mixed by Mark Williams – who previously produced 2004’s “Music For Nurses” EP by Oceansize – “The Demon Joke” impresses with Vennart’s emotive and captivating voice as well as many musical twists and turns. Catchy pop song arrangements radically switch into noisy heaviness, electronic passages are torn apart by rocking riffs whereas a track such as “Don’t Forget The Joker” stands out as soulful, quiet highlight. “The Demon Joke” is an unpredictable, inventive album and thus a perfect representation of its creator.

...And You WIll Know Us By The Trail Of Dead IX New album from alt.experimental texan rockers Trail Of Dead!“Trail of Dead have pretty reliably been churning out experimental alt rock for the last ten years. In fact, since last album ‘Lost Songs’ they’ve been playing up to their former mantle of punk experimental mavericks with more determination than ever. ‘Sound Of The Silk’ is surely one of the better tracks they’ve ever done, both instrumentally, where it’s a storming, drum led drone rocker, and lyrically, where it’s Conrad Keely’s wistful narrative proves infectious. Bottom line - if you’re new to Trail of Dead, this might be a good place to begin your investigations, and if you’ve lost track of them since their critical and commercial peak, then ‘Sound Of The Silk’ and ‘IX’ as a whole is as good a way as you’ll find to rediscover this consistently fantastic band.” Superball Music CD | LP
