Blood on the Wall + Martial Canterel
Blood on the Wall, Liferz (Social Registry 2008)
Been sitting on this one a little while until the calendar flipped: New rock from Brooklyn's Blood on the Wall out 1/22 on Social Registry. Awesomer had more tunes (i.m.o.) but this one rocks harder with beefed-up production & punky fury. "Is something wrong with your face??!?!?" (SR also has a new one from Growing coming down the pike in February that's my favorite thing they've done so far.)
Edit: BOTW end their U.S. tour for Liferz on 2/22 at Music Hall of Williamsburg (formerly North6) ...
Blood on the Wall - "Acid Fight"
Martial Canterel, Refuge Underneath (Wierd 2007)
Two cassettes (Drilling Backwards from 2006 and Sister Age from '04) by minimal wave prime mover Sean McBride aka Martial Canterel hit CD for Brooklyn's Wierd Records as a taster for a new Canterel LP. When Wierd Compilation Vol. I came out, I assumed it was a defining document handed down from a scene that had come and gone, but suddenly there's lots more on the way from that camp including the 37-track Wierd Compilation Vol. II: Analogue Electronic Music 2008.
