Preview Stillwater Giants’ latest track ‘Insane’

Wednesday, August 28th, 2013

stillwater-giants---press-photo-2013STILLWATER GIANTS are the one band who aren’t quick to toss of the ‘hipster’ label. Instead they embrace their roots as the DSLR-toting, camero-driving musicians they are and this style of writing has become synonymous with their desire to convince […]

Vinyl Retention: Shigeto

Wednesday, August 28th, 2013

Every Wednesday, Sardi lets us know what’s tickling his eardrums in the world of electronic music…

“2012 was a powerful year for me. I released my second LP; I played nearly 180 shows in 360 days; I made the move back home from Brooklyn, NY to Detroit, MI; a six-year relationship of mine came to an end and I made it 30 years on the planet.”

With such a profound year behind him, it’s no wonder that Shigeto’s third full length LP on the Ghostly International imprint displays moments of maturity, tenseness, refined production and above all else, true emotion.

No Better Time Than Now is a rich tapestry of future beats, experimentation, glitch and sparseness all rolled into a tight package. Twelve tracks of pure bliss that showcase the Shigeto sound of old and glimpses into the future.

If you like what you hear, be sure to tune in to RTRFM’s Full Frequency between 3pm & 5pm, as Sardi and Dart explore the latest beats & bass from around the globe.

Anger Management: Autopsy

Tuesday, August 27th, 2013

We check in with all things heavy on RTRFM’s Critical Mass show.

Autopsy are a death metal institution. Formed in the late eighties and riding the crest of the early nineties death metal explosion (golden years for some) the band carved out their legacy culminating with the godlike Mental Funeral.

Whilst their peers became more technical and added elements of melody, Autopsy were always content to lay low and stay sickeningly brutal. Always a bit more twisted, sick and gory lyrically. Never afraid to slow down to a doom crawl and alternately speed up to a scuzz punk pace (see the Shitfun release), they are a band that is never afraid of shocking fans lyrically or musically. Symphonies of sickness indeed.

The Headless Ritual sees Chris Reifert and his troops with a thicker, cleaner sounding recording. A common word brought up when describing this album is “mood”. Mostly mid-paced, with a slower dirge and faster workouts (see Arch Cadaver), the songs ooze out of the speakers. If it wasn’t for the pounding drums and Reiferts feral sounding vocals, it could almost be the score to some insane horror film.
