DIRTY OTTER PRESENT:
---RETOX (USA, Epitaph Records - ex The Locust etc)
RETOX's "YPLL" arrived via Epitaph Recordsearlier this year. A brand new video, "Congratulations You Are Good Enough," is already live on Vice's Music Channel, showcasing the band’s kinetic, challenging energy.
RETOX deliver a mission statement in 12 blistering tracks, the vast majority of them clocking in at two minutes or less. It's the type of rallying battle cry that inspires lingering and dormant primal urges and too-long-suppressed societal dissatisfaction in those who encounter its punk rock lineage and postmodern crash-and-ban.
Subcultural iconoclast and artistic visionary Justin Pearson is known in critical circles, amongst contemporaries across a wide variety of genres and to fans of incisively incendiary artistic expression around the world as one of the guiding lights of the groundbreaking outfit THE LOCUST. He resurfaced on record alongside gifted guitarist Michael Crain, dynamic bassist Thor Dickey and powerhouse drummer Brian Evans.
---ZEUS! (Italy, ThreeOneG Records)
Aims at using the minimum in order to get the maximum and is not metal, not punk, not math, not noise, not prog, absolutely not jazz-core, neither post-whatever. In case, a sum of micro compositions of these times, picassian and psychodelic, insofar as the peculiar melodies “liberate thought from social conventions superstructures”.
Drum and bass noise and sludge rock.
