Microwaves – “Psionic Impedance” – [Ug Explode]

This is a sonic assault of the jagged variety. Signed on Weasle Walter’s Ug Explode record label, these guys bring home the noise with a healthy dose of dirt. Here is some high energy, super angular, mathy-noise-punk-metal. The Microwaves sound like the love child of Don Cab and Shellac. Raw abrasion and generally indecipherable vocals delivered with punk rock sensibilities, stacked beneath all kinds of heavy. Gritty guitar riffage is paired with the perfect proportion of nasty electronics and oscillations, fuzzy sounds from beyond, odd meter, straight noise and sporadic chaos to make you bang your head, but not in time. This is like wrestling with a really well coordinated bear. In other words, fully awesome and slightly painful. -Surfer Rosa
