Augusniff -17

Back at it. Been preoccupied with other things to jam as much as I wanted this month. But hey at least I've moved to the liveable part of Sweden for the time being so here's a list to celbrate.
Who Told You To Think?​?​!​!​?​!​?​!​?​!

4.0 [hip hop] just check this review plz.

4.0 [IDM, techno, ambient] "A tangled web of machinery purrs. Neurons fire and wire together the synaptic environment of Tocci’s 'Aircntrl.' The producer’s debut on Human Pitch resembles an auditory science fiction metropolis, more akin to 'Blade Runner' than to his home in Milan, Italy. Evoking the uncanny valley between man and machine, 'Aircntrl' gives reason to suspect its composer may well be a human facsimile."
3Hieroglyphic Being, Sarathy Korwar and Shabaka Hutchings
A.R.E. Project

4.0 [techno, jazz] sounds exactly like you'd think an improvised collab between these artist would sound.
4She The Throne
She The Throne

4.0 [glitch, dark ambient, trip hop] "Like dark af portishead,Electronic glitch with a kinda 80s score feel to it" - Deezer
What Passes for Survival

4.0-3.5 [chaotic death metal] Finally living up to their potential imo.
6Moses Boyd
Absolute Zero

3.5 [beats and jazz] first track is essential
Every Country's Sun

3.5 [post rock] a more God is an Astronaut approach to post rock and Mogwai really seem to enjoy themselves on here.
8Mr. Lif and Akrobatik

3.5 [hip hop] with a message that's not chessy nor on your nose. A nice piece of work.
9Ben Frost
Threshold of Faith

3.5 [glitch, chill electronic] has a real organic sound to it that can be deciphered through the tape hissing.
10Steve Roach
Nostalgia for the Future

3.5 [ambient] If this is the future, I am ready for it. There is a lot to really like in this, a release which opens up a 4th decade of creating amazing art for the soul. As usual the sonics are incredible. // Biff Johnson
Insecurity Guard

3.5 [house kinda] yeeeeehs check this for slow paced house music.
12Portico Quartet
Art in the Age of Automation

3.5 [jazz, electronic] a step back in the right direction after the last mishappening. This is actually really good and I encourage you to check it.
13Old Guard
Not Everything is a Dream

3.5 [skramz] featuring members of Mesa Verde so you know this is hq stuff
14No Faith
Forced Subservience

3.5 [sludgy grind, hardcore] members of Discordance Axis and Orchid makes sludgy noisy hardcory music for your enjoyment

3.5 [punkcore] trebly af. Equally messy with a touch of insanity.
Time Well

3.5 [shoegaze, fuzz] This is the equivalent of taking a nap in a cage full of fluffy puppies who by the end of your nap has grown into bloodthirsty wolves.
17Max Cooper

3.5 [house, idm] a bit too accessible maybe? But neat sounding none the less.
Music For Zeitgeist Fighters

3.5-3.0 [drone, industrial, noise] a noisy offering with lots of layers that tastes sweet on my taste buds
19Golden Pelicans
Disciples Of Blood

3.0-3.5[garage rock] fine piece of rock music with an punkish attitude.
20Golden Retriever

3.0 [happy drone] Chill guitar ambient/drone type of stuff.
21Beneath (IS)

3.0 [tech death] has a somewhat disjointed feel to it. But I think a lot of you would dig.
22Tunga Moln
Tunga Moln III

3.0 [stoner blues] in swedish. It's aight but very formulatic.
23Sean Price
Imperius Rex

3.0 [hip hop] couple of bangers but mostly it feels like Sean is on autopilot RIP and all that tho.
24Jonah Parzen-Johnson
I Try To Remember Where I Come From

3.0 [jazz, electronic] jazz sax over synthesizers. Fun stuff but nothing that I'll ever jam again I think.
Profane Nexus

3.0 [death metal] Just read what Jac said.

3.0 [hardcore] NYC hardcore worship from Sweden. Goes hard but let's face it it's basic.
27Jana Rush

3.0 [footwork, juke] I don't know the difference between these two genres tbh but anyways.
So Numb

3.0 [post rock] kinda like a bargain Russian Circles almost.

3.0 [electronic, downtempo] with a jazzy touch. Nothing too engaging tho but a nice ride.

3.0 [progressive metal with a touch of shoegaze] Features the guitarist from Orgone which is easily recognizable. Songs on this aren't very engaging tho :(
31Total Leatherette
For the Climax of the Night

3.0 [post punk, techno] has a real hypnotic vibe to it. Almost worth checking just cos of that.

3.0 [black metal] his bet yet. Not my prefered type of black metal but yall will surely dig.
33Elusive (USA)

3.0 [elevator electronic] easy going but lacking any real substance

3.0 [electronic] I don't really know how to describe this. It has kind of a world music vibe to it and I understand what they were trying to accomplish here but I'm just not feeling it.
Sacred Horror In Design

3.0 [ethno jam] It builds and builds and builds til the last track which is the best track here. But it doesnt really make the long build justice.
A Walk With Love And Death

3.0-2.5 [sludge rock, field recordings, noise] starting to lose steam now guys. Take a break will ya?
37Queens of the Stone Age

3.0-2.5 [this is ROCK MUSIC] the most uninspired and most unsatisfactory QotSA record yet.
38Brand New
Science Fiction

2.5-3.0 [pop punk, emo] I mean every song on this drags even tho it has some nice moments. Kill your darlings people.
Protect Your Brand

2.5 [mathy emo] nothing to see here. Move along.
40 Pan Daijing

2.5 [experimental] not my kind of cup of tea
41Thy Art Is Murder
Dear Desolation

2.5 [deathcore] humongously homogenous with a lot of awkward breakdowns but at least sports some one or two sweet riffs
42Chief Keef
Thot Breaker

1.0 [post millennial bs] Getting too old for this shit.
