Schwarz

“Wouldn’t it Be Nice”

Speaking of summer—you probably were, right?—Schwarz, the Deep in the Game DJ/Unruly young gun, appears to be having good times here with the Beach Boys’ “Wouldn’t it Be Nice.” It’s a club remix in the proper sense, and the chopping and dicing of the track kinda makes it sound like Panda Bear minus any and all reverb, done up with the requisite filthy, nasty club beat. The saxophone clip about halfway through has the added benefit of coyly quoting pre-club house music, intentional or not. If you thought the cool-kids beach ‘n’ weed wave of the past whatever years was missing some dirt, sex, and punctuation, this is a nice start.

Eddie Brock

“Greener Pastures//Asshole Thrashers”

Oh, you weren’t aware of the genre known as “powerviolence”? Then you probably aren’t getting the implied in-joke of picking a single song off of Eddie Brock’s newly arriving LP to review. The songs of said genre, a bit like grindcore but even shorter, run in the 30-second range, just bursts of heavy, heavy dissonant brutality that’s like hardcore on ’roids with several whiskey chasers. Like, the whole record just played out over the span of the preceding sentences (plus a sneeze and nose blow). The song titled “Greener Pastures//Asshole Thrashers” delivers, like, eight or nine seconds of sludgeycore feedback-y chug, and chases off in this amphetamine race of bark bark bark and beats that aren’t blastbeats so much as they are just really goddamn fast. So, there you go: 20 seconds of music, 147 words. I didn’t think I could do it either.

Eddie Brock releases its self-titled EP at Charm City Art Space Aug. 19. For more information visit eddiebrockmd.tumblr.com.

 

Unnh

“Floater”

Unnh is vets from a couple of Baltimore heavy-music recent history’s better bands, Vincent Black Shadow and Sick Weapons, doing a whole new thing more in Southern-metal territory than punk of any sort. Buzzy, desert-y guitar churn/riffs and vocals way back there in the mix make it more of a whiskey than beer sort of affair. I guess it sounds a bit like Karma to Burn, particularly in guitar tone, but the vocals in particular make it sound more ’70s retro (it’s tagged on Bandcamp as “proto-metal,” so, yeah). Good times.
