Edinburgh-based alternative hip-hop band Stanley Odd return with their third studio album ‘A Thing Brand New’, due for release on Monday 10th November on A Modern Way Recordings, available as a limited edition heavy-weight vinyl, CD digi-pak and digital download. From social commentary, to personal stories, ‘A Thing Brand New’ is a collection of songs – words and music graphically interlaced in ultra high definition. This album is Stanley Odd at their most organic and evolved; comfortable in the awkwardness of their own skins.

Hailing from North Somerset, UK post/prog-rock veterans BLUENECK have been at forefront of the European underground experimental scene since forming in 2000. Singer-songwriter Duncan Attwood’s astonishingly affecting melancholy vocals have always been the chilly heart of Blueneck’s music. “King Nine” is the band’s fifth album. On the album, three main influences can be identified: the electronica of Boards of Canada; the movie soundtracks of Ennio Morricone and John Carpenter; the melodicism and melancholia of Kid-A era Radiohead and Arcade Fire.
An exceptional debut release by a young band from Germany, which is a fusion between the bandPolarkreis 18 and the actor Christian Friedel. The result is finest Indie-Pop-Rock.

Ladies on Mars is back with this brand new Album. Eat your pills is an exclusive pre-release. Go,check it out and eat your pills!!
Within its nine tracks of doomed rock n roll, “Morning Star Rise” encapsulates the last three years of The House of Capricorn’s infernal service. Manifested at the bottom of the world, “Morning Star Rise” is an unholy, antipodean hymn to a looming end, all in the blinding light of the Devil. Drawing from the rowdy darkness of Babylon Whores, the gloom of Type O Negative, and all kinds of scathing Black Metal, the record is a culmination of rich influences and pitch black aesthetics, all presented in lurching rock n roll form with honest, Hellish intent.
