10,000 Russos are a formidable force< their industrial psych&post/punk has been charming fuzz/heads across the globe with its stomping, shamanic mantras and otherworldly krautrock slant. 10,000 Russos have once again transcended the boundaries of psychedelia as we know it today< their dark, droning noise is twisted, distorted and pushed to its limit. istress Dis/tress' is so ritualistic and industrial it sees their usual post/punk sound - a primal and celestial mix of The Fall, NEU! and Space/men 3 - pushed within an inch of techno territory with its abrasive, metronomic rhythms.
Live session by A Place To Bury Strangers for the does-what-it-says-on-the-tin Fuzz Club. Recorded at the end of their tour for their last album, 2018's Pinned, this recording captures the manic energy of those shows while also offering the band the chance to reflect on their songs they'd been playing.

12@ coloured vinyl. TCODK / a four/piece from the UK Midlands / make experimental goth/ tinged psych / fans of Swans and The Icarus Line will find plenty to entertain them here. The thing that first impresses on hearing TCODK is the sheer scale of their intentions.. Take eepest Pit Of Emptiness' for example - its prog leanings combined with a decided/ly English vocal delivery are as distinctive and profound as anything released this year. TCODK have pushed themselves sonically on this album, it's by far their most experi/mental release to date. It's also an album rooted in darkness.
