David Musto: April 8, 2012

Here is a list from around the globe.

  1. Tappi TíkarrassMiranda (Gramm)

    Our first stop is Iceland, where a gal named Björk started in this little punk band. Very cool to hear her voice in this context.

  2. LabirintoKadjwynh (Self-Released)

    Moving on to Brazil and to this upcoming post-rock band. This is their follow-up EP to 2010’s excellent full length, Anatema.

  3. Lacuna CoilIn A Reverie (Century Media)

    Before American influence began to overtake this spellbinding Italian metal band, there were wonderful tracks like this.

  4. Cola FreaksS/T (Douchemaster)

    These Danish garage punks are just fun.

  5. The CreteensS/T (Boom Chick)

    Nasty, raw, and vulgar. France at its best.

  6. The SpectresLast Days (Whisper In Darkness)

    A little post-punk action from Canada.

  7. RammsteinMutter (Universal)

    Germany is next and what else?

  8. I Break HorsesHearts (Bella Union)

    Then off to Sweden for one of my top 5 fave albums from last year.

  9. SennenAge Of Denial (Hungry Audio)

    A little English shoegaze.

  10. The VaselinesDum-Dum (53rd & 3rd)

    And just a quick skip over to Scotland for some pop.
