Queens Of The Stone Age ‎– ...Like Clockwork

Queens Of The Stone Age ‎– ...Like Clockwork
(2013) Matador

A new, laidback, CD from Queens Of The Stone Age. And it's a grower! No immediate hit songs, but a great record to listen to. I like both Josh Homme's unique kind of riffing and strange song structures.

Mental Discipline - Fall 2 Pieces EP

Mental Discipline - Fall 2 Pieces
DDEP (2013) skyQode

My favourite Russian future pop band Mental Discipline surprises me a bit with this new remix EP. "Fall To Pieces" was easily the best song on their 2012 debute album "Constellation", much thanks to the excellent vocals delievered by Felix Marc. On this EP though, the song is sung by Alex Mental himself. And I enjoy this version too! The EP also features one new track (with female vocals this time. Finally!) and some great remixes by Assemblage 23 and SITD, among others.

Nitzer Ebb - Basic Pain Procedure

Nitzer Ebb - Basic Pain Procedure
1983/2013 Pylon

The legendary 1983 Nitzer Ebb "Basic Pain Procedure" is finally released on CD, thanks to Pylon Records. The soundquality isn't that great - but it's certainly good enough to get a pleasant listening time! Most of the songs didn't make it onto Nitzer Ebb's regular albums or singles. So if you want to hear some really primitive proto-body, this is a good choice.

The Rope - The Rope EP

The Rope - The Rope EP (2011)
Late Century

Yes! More good goth. And somewhat fresh, too. Six tracks of America's finest post punk/goth (actually five tracks and a live number). I don't know why I haven't heared about this band earlier. It's been two years since they released this excellent EP, two truly lost years...
