Sloks “Holy Motor”

"One Up" and "Rat" open this album in a very no wave way full of noise and repetitive beats, but the Italian power trio has its roots in primitive garage as you can hear in "Holy Motor." SLOKS tell us that "Jazz Is Dead" in a psychedelic chaotic celebration of noise, but also admit they... Continue Reading →

The Innocent “S/T”

Italy has brought us some exciting rock'n'roll bands these last years (GIUDA, IDOL LIPS, LESTER GREENOWSKI, etc.), and it seems like it won't stop now.

Criminal Party “La Révolution Bourgeoise”

Even though you might have not heard them before, CRIMINAL PARTY started in 1986 in Italy, but they only released their first CD in 1999. This new album comes out with a French title and French revolution influenced artwork. The band's music stands somewhere between old-school punk rock'n'roll and hard rock, but also borrows influences... Continue Reading →

Italian band CREAM PIE has been around for a while since they started rockin' in 2007 in the South of Italy, then later moved to Milan.
