Item ID: 411293

Emerging in a haze of demented riff science and booze-addled abandon, London-based tinnitus machine Hey Colossus have carved out a notable niche for themselves in the British underground's murkier quarters. 'In Black And Gold' marks a point whereby Hey Colossus map out a sonic trajectory that expands on their trademark ornery overload. The songs herein may be leaner and more artful than the fearsome sound by which they made their name on albums like 2008's 'Project: Death' and the monstrous 2013 opus 'Cuckoo Live Life Like Cuckoo', but they remain possessed of the wrath both Stoogian and Stygian that fuels their noiserock transgression. Yet meanwhile, and with 2015 looming large, an evolutionary process has led to their maximalist tendencies being replaced by a sharp focus on space and restraint, not to mention a refreshing stylistic diversity, resulting in a strange aural alchemy.

Also available: IN BLACK AND GOLD (CD).

HEY COLOSSUS - CARCASS/MEDAL

A double A-side single from Hey Colossus! 'Carcass' is taken from the band's 'Four Bibles' album and leaves a poppier impression, albeit Hey Colossus style, with dual vocals and searing guitars. 'Medal' is a blast of the band's signature dirge with a hook as big as the ... read more »

 

HEY COLOSSUS - FOUR BIBLES

HEY COLOSSUS - FOUR BIBLES

'Four Bibles' is the 12th studio album from the highly regarded London-based six-piece! Lead vocalist Paul Sykes sounds more in focus than before, dialling down the effects and using reverb and delay to carry his lyrics rather than smother. The band has also fine-tuned to ... read more »

HEY COLOSSUS - GUILLOTINE

Hey Colossus' impressive 2017 full-length, 'The Guillotine', sounds much darker, more brooding and melodically richer than the band's previous works.

HEY COLOSSUS - II

'II' was recorded over two separate recording sessions in 2004. Mixing up the Melvins/Sabbath inspired mallet to the head of album opener 'Red Giant', the Neu!/Can-like 12 minute freak out of 'Take It', with the general three guitar wall of sound that attacks on all of the ... read more »

OHRN, JOSEFIN -& THE LIBERATION- - HORSE DANCE

In an era in which psychedelia can often mean merely a grab-bag of influences it can be a rarity to come across a band that is genuinely fixated on creating alternate realities for the listener. This is exactly how Stockholm's Josefin Öhrn & The Liberation view ... read more »

 

GUM TAKES TOOTH - ARROW (2LP)

GUM TAKES TOOTH - ARROW (2LP)

On DOUBLE-VINYL, this is the hyper-kinetic third full-length by the London-based duo. 'Arrow' offers a dynamic, rhythmically driven and flagrantly unclassifiable fury that flirts with both speaker-ripping psych-rock pyrotechnics and synapse-shredding acid house.

 

MAMUTHONES - FEAR ON THE CORNER

MAMUTHONES - FEAR ON THE CORNER

A great album by a band that emerged from the Italian occult psychedelic movement, alongside the likes of Father Murphy, Mai Mai Mai and the labelmates Lay Llamas.

 

ANTHROPROPHH - OMEGAVILLE (2LP)

ANTHROPROPHH - OMEGAVILLE (2LP)

Fronted by Paul Allen formerly of The (Heads), Anthroprophh takes both garage-bound filth and wayward, abstract artistry to zones beyond comprehension. This is the band's 2018 full-length on DOUBLE-LP.
