Balam Acab Wander/Wonder LP/CD
(Tri Angle)

Clams Casino Instrumentals LP

Yes, a piggybacked review here. Why? Because, to be honest, if you like one then most likely you'll like the other. Dubbed/drugged/dragged/morphined/heroined/slowed/sleep-deprived/hallucinatory beats. I recommended the Balam Acab EP last year. Guess what? The LP is more of the same and no less great. All new tracks with pitched up and down vocal tracks over smooth tripped out melodies, waves and thuds. The Clams Casino LP really creeps up on you. Or at least, while I gave it the initial listen I found myself deeper and deeper in it. I was fully immersed when I got hit with a Bjork sample - at which point I probably exclaimed something aloud to whoever was around me. Something like, "This is the album of the century!" with much hyperbole, mind you, but not lacking the sincerity of the sentiment. A couple solid Hip-Hop influenced (Clams Casino is arguably just hip-hop; he does produce beats for a few rappers after all) down-tempo electronic beat releases here. So many solid ones lately (see: last update's Shlohmo review). I'm enjoying it.

Parasite / Vermapyre 7"
(Holy Terror)

You can add Parasite to the ever-growing list of Japanese bands that I dig. D-beat hardcore punk that will make you want to dance more then just hold a beer and pump your fist. A few riffs sound middle eastern-influenced to me. I love that Japanese bands aren't afraid to get a little weird with their crust. For fans of G.I.S.M. & Paintbox. Vermapyre is another mysterious outfit. I'm not even sure which country they're from is it Japan or Belgium? Either way, these dudes kicks it off with an extremely raw black metal track called, "March Of Thee Vermapyrical Legions". Then you get hit with "Thee Cold Invocation" which is more of a spooky noise track with some female whispers buried in the mix. The last track is, "Return Of The Sorcerer" which sounds more like a rough live Integrity recording. Locked groove? I'm sold. For fans of Bone Awl & weirder Integ jams.

Poison Planet Demo 7"
(Offside Records)

Poison Planet is a straight edge powerviolence band on Offside Records. Kinda reminds me of Dropdead with a couple guitar solos thrown in. Lot's of politically motivated lyrics. The insert has explanations behind some of the lyrics, which is something I always thought was great. Earth Crisis did it on the "All Out War" 7" about their use of the word "fetus." The album ends with an animal noise. I say it sounds like a wolf, Rick thinks it's a whale. YOU DECIDE.
