Hatred Surge / Insect Warfare - Spilt

Ok so, you should know these two bands. At the very least, you should know Insect Warfare. Hatred Surge, funnily enough, was started by ex-bassist Alex Hughes from Insect Warfare.

Needless to say, both bands rule. And what happens when they get together?

Face = grinded.

Elvis Costello - My Aim Is True and This Year's Model

Elvis Costello, in all his angry, nerdy and literate glory may not look like much, but he's probably one of the most talented songwriters who ever lived.

These two are from his earlier days. They are both phenomenal works of in the pub rock/punk vein. I prefer This Year's Model but they're both so good you'll want them both

Alison is one of the most gorgeous and superbly written (from a lyrical perspective especially) songs ever.

The Pop Group - Y

Very interesting band. The Pop Group mix funk, dub, and even jazz into their mashed up post-punk sound, and somehow, pull it off. There's something about post-punk bands and experimentation that go so well together, and this is a great example.

Worth checking out if you like music at all.

Innsmouth - She-Goat

More Aussie death metal, this time around on the thrashy/Lovecraftian side of things.

Released a cassette in '09 which was pretty cool, but I prefer this, which came out a short time ago.


Actress - Hazyville

Some chill dubstep/downtempo for y'all, this shit rules.

This dude is also responsible for a fantastic remix of Panda Bear's song "Surfers Hymn," which you can check out here

Felix Mendelssohn and Max Bruch - 2 Violin Concertos

These are two of the most important violin concertos around. Both are of romantic period sound, although Mendelssohn was much earlier than Bruch. Mendelssohn's is in E Minor and is considered essential in a violinist's repertoire. Bruch's is similarly noted. If you haven't listened to much Romantic music then this is a great place to start.

Cruciform - Atavism

Death/doom from Australia.

Though not as filthy and deranged as some of Australia's more recent output, and not as great as the seminal diSEMBOWELMENT album, Transcendence into The Peripheral, Cruciform still put out great quality material. Unfortunately, this album and a later demo were all they released, but quality over quantity is always a good thing.

Just another awesome album to add to the strong reputation of Australia's underground history.

Can - Tago Mago

What happens when a bunch of Germans, under the influence of Stockhausen and many drugs, start playing rock music?

It comes out all fucked up. And awesome.
