This Machine Kills Robots release A History of Violent Crime in the Darkest Corners of the Ocean Floor

This Machine Kills Robots - A History of Violent Crime in the Darkest Corners of the Ocean Floor

This Machine Kills Monsters have a sound all unto themselves. Metal and surf rub up against each other plenty, but TMKR seem to grab the speed and intensity of metal (and perhaps the drumming) and otherwise stick with modern surf tones and structures. Like The Madeira cranked up to unsafe speeds. On a quick listen, this might be my favorite work of theirs so far: more emotive, more ambitious, and more interesting instrumentation choices, with a big satisfying finish.

Genki Genki Panic release Ghoulie High Harmony

Genki Genki Panic - Ghoulie High Harmony

Genki Genki Panic is a twosome comprised of guitarist Chancho and drummer El Fatsquatch. A little while ago they had a six-song demo EP up, and it's nice to hear how those songs have progressed into a much more polished product, and of course it's nice hear the new tracks that came along the way. If you like horror surf it's well worth a listen.

Les Vice Barons release The Model EP

Les Vice Barons - The Model EP

Wow! The\Les Vice Barons released two great LPs back in the 90's and since then I would have presumed they were done. But here we are with a brand new EP. Four songs, including a great version of The Model. I wonder of Kraftwerk knows that their tune has somehow become a surf standard. Anyway, this one's great: it sounds gigantic, and there's some great organ playing all over it.

Wild Al Hotchkiss & His Aquaphibians release Salty Sea Dawg EP

Wild Al Hotchkiss and his Aquaphibians - Salty Sea Dawg

While Wild Al isn't normally intstrumental, he's dropped off a nice little 4-song release for us. This is definitely pretty heavily psychedelic, slow, and desolate, sort of leaning towards Thee Oh Sees or Ty Segall, but he lists Ventures in Space as one of the primary influences on this EP. If you've heard anything from The Space Agency, you oughta feel this one.

He's got it at a pay-watchu-want level, including free. Give it a lissen

The Okay-Men release Auf Kassette

The Okay-Men - Auf Kassette

Last time we heard from the The Okay-Men I did some sleuthwork into figuring out just who these mystery men were. Looks like this isn't a one-off side project though, we've got a full LP and in the quick sample listen I did this morning I'd say it's the best Okay/Boo-Men material yet. It's faster, harder, but it's still got plenty of that pogo pseudo-polka beat.
