Ex Cops True Hallucinations

(Other Music)
On their debut full-length, this Brooklyn quintet is all about feeling good with its half hour of mellow, dream pop-tinged indie rock.  Formed as a duo in 2011, vocalists Amalie Bruun (formerly of Minks) and Brian Harding (formerly of Hymns, and also a guitarist and keyboardist) first released a short-run CD-EP and later a seven-inch featuring two of its tracks, which also made it to this album. Both “You Are a Lion, I Am a Lamb” and “The Millionaire” showcase a catchy summertime atmosphere, sounding like ethereal surf-pop that can be sunny and energetic or cool and subdued.  I personally have a strong liking for the Beach Boys-esque “Spring Break (Birthday Song;)” a driving mid-tempo acoustic number that’s about as easy-going as it gets.

Iron Reagan Worse Than Dead

(Magic Bullet/A389)
It’s no surprise that this Richmond, Virginia punk band is all about thrashing fury, as it features members from Darkest Hour and Municipal Waste (the latter of which is the most comparable to its sound.) They blaze through 19 under-two-minute songs with an intense, buzz-saw rush similar to that of crossover thrash forefathers Cro-Mags and D.R.I., incorporating elements of both punk and metal. Their targets include everyone from “religious” scammers (“I Predict the Death of Harold Camping,”) to “The Debt Collector” who leeches off people who need medical care, to lawmakers who make it too easy to maniacs to obtain weapons, with the “Two Examples” being the Virginia Tech and Aurora theater shootings. It’s fitting to have topical commentary for these uneasy times.

Pharmakon Abandon

(Sacred Bones)
Power electronics is male dominated. Pharmakon is a project of a female (Margaret Chardiet). There, that's out of the way. I have some experience with p.e. and recordings of it. Much of the time the recordings are piss poor and that is a lot of the charm ("charm") much of the time (much of the time [muchuchch ofofvvv thethethhhuhuhuu timeimeimemmmm]). Here's where this recording is different and here is perhaps why this divergence is getting so much recognition (aside from that first thing I mentioned). This recording is meticulously well produced. It's a noise record, let's understand that. It's not "Pet Sounds" or any such polished pop album. It is however not a Grey Wolves or Con-Dom or Deathpile or Anenzephalia (not even the newest one) or any number of artists' album though it does owe a debt to all of them. It's powerful and angry and noisy and honestly a bit all over the place from song to song; it's all within the p.e. spectrum mind you. It's never boring.
