New blissful noise / smoothness from King Midas Sound - Aroo
Christopher Walken - the man could just be on screen for two hours and not say a word and he’d be more entertaining than your average mega-dollar effort.
FADES by The Mekano Set: bass-riffs, pounding beats, swirling / fucked-up guitars. Twelve views of a dark Punk Electronica, through a shattered windscreen.
A mix of swirly Post-Punk guitars, bass riffage, and pounding beats. Our Shoegrime / Soulgaze EP:
“Beautifully crafted doesn’t come close to describing the latest EP from The Mekano Set. But that’s hardly out of the ordinary for the Meks. Abstract guitars and Post-Punk bass-lines swirl around massive, sound system crushing beats…
“Noise and found-sounds tickle the ears while the listener is brow-beaten with hook after hook. And it all sounds so beautiful too. Slick as fuck, with substance. The Bandcamp release includes five bonus tracks. Splendid.” Stray Recordings.
“Everything ‘Post-Punk’ is sometimes accused of being a nostalgic throwback to a time of musical superiority, where modern bands find themselves relentlessly compared to their fore-bearers. Part of the whole point of me doing any of this in the first place was to prove that didn’t have to be the case, and I think The Mekano Set embody that point as much as anything I’ve ever heard.”
“Traditional Post-Punk staples clash with thoroughly contemporary electronica, ominous baritone guitars ring out over sparse break-beats, and the themes are edgy and relevant. This is a band facing forward…” Who Wave Music.
