Wretched Wisdom By Krallice (or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Black Metal)

Most of the music I post here is in the indierock/electronic vein, but let me tell you I have a major soft spot for trash and speedmetal circa 1985-1992. I admit it. After the Metallica black album, that soft spot hardened. Time passed. Then metal crossed over into indie. I really liked that first album by The Sword. I wanted to get into Mastodon when I first heard of them, but it never really took. I dig them when they come up on random on iTunes, but I never really seek them out.

"Barael's Blade" ( mp3) by The Sword
"March Of The Fire Ants" ( mp3) by Mastodon

Then I started checking out instrumental postmetal (via thepunkguy, thanks Krist), e.g. Russian Circles and Pelican, kickass. I think I liked the instrumental part of the equation as I am not a big fan of the cookie monster vocals.

"Station" ( mp3) by Russian Circles
"City of Echoes" ( mp3) by Pelican

When I was checking into that genre, one name kept popping up... Krallice.

They look like this:

This is not instrumental postmetal. This is the non-satanist American variant of Black Metal played by guys who have roots in the prog/jazz/post/tech-metal of Orthrelm and Behold...The Arctopus. This is less noodly and proggy. Nevertheless, this is a commitment. The shortest song is on the Krallice self-titled album is 6:08. The mp3 below clocks in at 10:17. Because the screamy vocals are very low in the mix, for me this is a new genre almostinstrumentalblackmetal. It is AWE-some (in the true meaning of the word). I wish someone told me about this when it came out in July last year.

Downloadable: "Wretched Wisdom" ( mp3) by Krallice

Am I going to be sucked in to an investigation of Black Metal? I had always rejected the genre as "too extreme," but maybe I just wasn't ready for it. We'll see.

Bruce Springsteen Vs. Wipers

First off, if you have not checked out Christoper Weingarten's (ex-ptw, ex-Parts & Labor) new mini-review project Poisson D’Avril make with the clicking. Plus, you can twitter the reviews @1000TimesYes. His #44 review for the new Bruce Springsteen record: "The anti-808s And Heartbreak. Hard work pays off in life and love and DC. Dream, baby, dream.=8" But then I saw this tweet yesterday: "Bruce Springsteen's super-posi, sorta Wipers-esque Working On A Dream is out today!" I thought "sorta Wipers-esque", whaa?

Upon re-listening to "My Lucky Day" I could kinda/sorta hear some Greg Sage, but I'm still kinda skeptical. What do you all think?

Baraat By Rude Mechanical Orchestra

The Rude Mechanical Orchestra killed it last night at the Matt & Kim show, upstaging even secret special guest Spank Rock who was trying out some new material. You may remember RMO from this post. They are "radical" -- as in they support feminist, queer, labor, environmental, social and economic justice, peace, and other progressive causes. Speaking of which, RMO have a gig coming up at The St. Pat's for All Parade (43rd St and Skillman Ave, Sunnyside, Queens) on Sun Mar 01 @ 2 PM. Listen to them play one of their trademark songs, the title track to the 2001 film Monsoon Wedding.

Don't Slow Down By Matt & Kim

Matt And Kim (a/k/a Matt Johnson and Kim Schifino) have a new album Grand. It is filled with Vermont-recorded BKLYNsynthpop. Get ready for handclaps everyone. First off, this one is less punky, more mid tempo. I am kind of interested in hearing how some of the songs will sound live. Plus, I must say I am surprised that the album doesn't come preloaded with remixes (note: there is one "outro mix"), but I guess we will have to wait for the remixes in the coming months. Anyway, the new album looks like this:

Matt & Kim Grand

"Don't Slow Down" ( mp3)
"Good Ol' Fashioned Nightmare" ( mp3)

Streamable: Grand (spinner album stream)

More? Interview links? I has them. Read the Brooklyn Based interview (here). Topics covered... health insurance, twin beds, The White Stripes, Todd P, day jobs. Read the p'fork interview (here). Topics covered... selling out, Rick Rubin, performing on the floor vs the stage, Fugazi.

Tonight at the Music Hall of Williamsburg it's the record release show. As for the Secret Special Guests, here is my lame attempt at a guess:

Ninjasonik (prolly)
Team Robespierre (prolly)
Flosstradamus (maybe)
Parts & Labor (maybe)

Hopefully, there will be no Converse or Mountain Dew banners covering the "slippery slope" that is the stage.

Housewolf By Eula

Eula are Alyse (vocals, guitar) + Jef (bass) + Nate (drums). They describe themselves thusly... "Pulsating, sincere on verge of unraveling happy distortion. Running down complex flourishes with clarity melodious squares. Beat Beat crash crash slap swelling to precise fullness pooling on the floor." I can summarize for you: indie rock filled with postpunky goodness. The Connecticut trio are releasing a physical copy of their latest EP, Language Of Threat in March (I think). Take a listen.

Liveblogging: The Forms @ The Bell House

I doubt you are checking your rss feeds right now, but I am about to see The Forms at The Bell House in lovely Gowanusland, BKLYN. So far I am digging The Bell House. The Smuttynose is excellent, and I am liking the "vibe" so to speak. Right now there is some setting up. Then The Forms.

Eventhough it was kind of shitty out, I was all like... "fuck it, I'm seeing the Forms."

This post will be updated later with links and pics and maybe vids. If you are reading this before I update it, I highly recommend that you follow The Forms tag below and listen to some of their mp3s. I am hoping the live experience lives up, my expectations are high.

[UPDATE] Expectations met. Really enjoyed hearing the bass-less revamped versions of songs off the self-titled long player.

Here are some (previously posted) mp3s:
"Knowledge In Hand" ( mp3)
"Focus" ( mp3)
"Red Gun" (mp3)
"Bones" (mp3)
