Book Club - One-Way Moon ( The Cottage Recording Co. )


Georgia-based collective Book Club have released “ One-Way Moon
On Book Club’s new LP, One-Way Moon (out Feb. 17 via Cottage Recording Co./Bear Kids Recordings), frontman/songwriter Robbie Horlick practices introspection without navel-gazing, his wounded warble trickling like creekwater past the strum of the nylon six-string and the pluck of the banjo, cascading over daydreamy piano and the breathy moan of bow on strings.

Mutoid Man - Bleeder ( Sargent House - 2015 )


Mutoid Man, consisting of guitarist and vocalist Stephen Brodsky of Cave In and drummer Ben Koller of Converge and All Pigs Must Die, have realised their debut record Helium Head on November 29 2014 ( Magic Bullet/Nonbeliever Records )
Bleeder, the full-length debut from Mutoid Man, is certainly less raw than their 2014 EP, Helium Head, an 18-minute mine cart ride that was as fast, convulsive, and stubbornly melodic as you would expect from a supergroup made up of the guitarist/vocalist of Cave In, the drummer from Converge, and the sound guy from Brooklyn metal bar Saint Vitus on bass. Bleeder takes on all these traits to a degree, but with a clearer separation between the gnarled instrumentation and Steve Brodsky’s vocals. This divide results from an increased emphasis on clear-headed singing rather than the constant yowl Brodsky put forth on Helium Head. ( )
