Carpenter Brut – Escape from Midwich Valley

I’m not necessarily against electronic music. I’m just more of a rock and roll guy. Breakcore and drum and bass got me through the last couple years of college. And I’ve always been a fan of John Carpenter’s soundtracks. So of course, I’m glad to have discovered France’s Carpenter Brut, a band nakedly worshipping his lo-fi efforts at doing every damn thing himself. Check out the intro track from their latest. It quickly goes from atmospheric, to heavy to danceable. Then check out their killer videos over at YouTube.

Poison Idea – Bog

Old punk bands as a rule are pretty boring. But as Portland’s own Poison Idea are the GOAT (greatest of all time), it’s not surprising that their fourth or fifth comeback album is even more solid than their earliest efforts at loud/fast. Here’s the first track off Confuse and Conquer, out now on the god-tier Southern Lord Records.
