News: 3TEETH releases debut on Artoffact records

by on Jun.09, 2014, under News

image001Los Angeles industrial foursome 3TEETH released their debut self-titled album on Artoffact Records on June 3rd, landing at #8 on iTunes Electronic chartand reaching #5 on Bandcamp’s overall sales rankings. The group garnered praise from all corners of the internet in the weeks leading up to the release, including high marks from top blogs EarmilkMishkaI Die: You DieDesign Milk, and Electronic Beats. A remix album featuring the likes of Aesthetic PerfectionBestial MouthsAAIMON, and Blush Response—and released on a tooth-shaped USB stick—sold out on pre-orders, as did the band’s accompanying splatter vinyl.

3TEETH formed in late 2012 and the group spent 2013 crafting their sound and creating an online image that is at once political and mysterious. The group’s logo-emblazoned photos have become the stuff of memes, and their online fanbase has increased with every leaked remix, video, and photograph.

image0033TEETH will debut their live show at LA’s prestigious Complex club on June 21st, and they will make their Canadian debut at Calgary’s Terminus Festival June 27th-29th. More tour dates are in the works.


“Bands like 3TEETH and Youth Code are reviving a scene that had become bogged down by formulaic bands seeking underground success.”

Caroline Williamson, Design Milk

“3 Teeth are poised to connect all the fucking dots and release the sort of record that defines Our Thing in the coming year.”

I Die: You Die

“A heavy contender for album of the year.”

Backseat Mafia

“3TEETH offers a blow-your-face-off new Industrial album with depth and grit, reminiscent of Trent Reznor’s ‘Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’ scoring. It will actually shake your bones…you can’t miss this.”

The Daily Grind

 “A+. Instant contender for Album of the Year. Everything industrial music should be in 2014.”

AltFest music festival

by on May.27, 2014, under Event

You may or may not have heard of a new little music festival taking place on some island later this summer.
The festival is rather small since it only spans 3 days and packs only 6 stages of bands that probably no-one has ever heard of like Covenant, Marilyn Manson, VNV Nation, The Cult, Blutengel and someone by the name of Gary Neuman among the other 130 bands. Oh, and the festival will have only one circus arena; what kind of festival is this?

Seriously though, my hat is off to the organizers. This ambitious festival is nothing short of breath taking in it’s scale. This is an event that should not be missed. My recommendation is to clear off ANYTHING you may have planned for 15-17 August 2014, buy yourself a plane, train, bus, donkey or elephant ticket and get to Boughton Estate, Kettering, Northamptonshire in the UK.
And at £57.00 a day or £125.00 for the whole weekend you can’t go wrong!

Album Review: ReArrested by E-Craft

by on May.27, 2014, under Album Reviews

EC Release Date ReArrested!Two years ago while doing an interview with E-Craft lead man Guido,  I was sent a few tracks of their upcoming album. It had been five years since their previous full release “Unsocial Times” and hearing some new music from E-Craft back in 2012 was very exciting for me. Having been a longtime fan, I was excited about the thought of a new album. Weeks went by, then months, then years, and still no news of the album release.
Until early this year when they announced a release date for their new album. I was over joyed.

Then the other day while chatting with Guido, I was offered the privilege to hear the new album in it’s entirety. Though a lot of elements remained from the early samplers I heard two years earlier, the tracks on this album are fully mixed, polished and have more punch to knock your socks off.
I was blown away when listening to the album and my sock just barely managed to stay on.

On May 30 E-Craft will be debuting to the world their new album Re-Arrested. On this side of the pond, Vendetta Music will be distributing the album and in Europe the album will be distributed by Sony / Soul Food. The album is a double CD which will include 25 tracks (a few minutes short of two hours) of E-Craft love, 16 of which are new and the rest are remixes or different versions.

Stay tuned and watch E-Craft’s Facebook page or E-Craft’s web site for details at the end of the month.

Here is a teaser of the new album.

Album Review: Four by The Exploding Boy

by on Oct.31, 2013, under Album Reviews

Sweeden has produced a lot of great musicians over the years, and The Exploding Boy is following that trend. Since the band’s inception in 2006, they’ve put out 3 album, numerous singles and performed nearly 100 live shows all round Europe. In that time their sound has had some time to simmer. What’s left is a diluted and potent mixture of a gothy-dark-pop-ish-post-punk aural experience. (continue reading…)

Free Music : Junkion by Mangadrive

by on Oct.02, 2013, under Free Music

It’s always a great day when Mangadrive releases a new music.
And best of off, it’s a “Pay what you can” so head over to bandcamp and grab the album.
This album isn’t the next album but rather a collection of tracks that never made it on the older albums.

News: Cat Rapes Dog return with new CD

by on Sep.03, 2013, under News

Somehow we just knew we had to make music. Problem was we couldn’t play and didn’t have any instruments.

Described by Sweden’s national tabloid Expressen as “a perfect union of Front 242 and the B-52’s,” Swedish electronic punk group Cat Rapes Dog is back with their first album since 1999. The new album, dubbed Life Was Sweet, is the seventh Cat Rapes Dog studio release and first on label Artoffact. The band gets right to the point and stays true to their punk rock roots, rarely pausing and skipping all filler. The album clocks in at a “fits on vinyl” 35 minutes, but in this short space Cat Rapes Dog will tell you to go out and vote, give you a lesson in religion, and baffle you with a sense of humour all their own. Manic electronic synth lines meet over-the-top male and female vocals on nine tracks of pure DIY weird. (continue reading…)
