Foto-di-matti STEREO-MCs.jpg
Deep Down & Dirty is the fourth studio album by the British electronic band Stereo MCs (pictured), released on May 28 2001, nine years after the successful Connected. The album maintains a similar style to its predecessor with deep-groove, beatbox funk, nods to soul-jazz and gospel though music critics at the time noted its grittier, edgier approach.
2013 BEAST c-class
BEAST playing live.jpg
Beast (often stylised as BEAST) is a garage rock supergroup from Cape Town. Formed in 2012, the band consists of Inge Beckmann (vocals) of Lark, Louis Nel (bass guitar) and Rian Zietsman (bass guitar) of Taxi Violence, and Werner von Waltsleben (drums) of Kobus!. BEAST's sound has been self-described as "psychological rock and roll" and a "four-nippled aberration".
2016 Foreshore Freeway Bridge C-class Foreshore Freeway Bridge.jpg The Foreshore Freeway Bridge, also known as Cape Town's Unfinished Bridge, is an incomplete section of what was intended to be the Eastern Boulevard Highway in the city bowl of Cape Town, South Africa. Conceptualised and designed in the late 1960s, work began in the early 1970s with the freeway aimed at alleviating future traffic congestion in the city expected in the years to come. However, due to budget constraints in city expenditure at the time, the project never came to completion and has stood in its unfinished state since construction officially ended in 1977.
2016 Van Breda murders c-class DeZalze Golf Estate.jpg The Van Breda murders was the notorious and brutal killing of three family members and the seriously injuring of another on January 27, 2015, at an exclusive golf estate (pictured) in Stellenbosch, South Africa. After a year and a half of investigations by the South African police, the chief suspect and youngest son Henri van Breda handed himself over to police in June 2016 and was released on bail the next day.
2017 Stoker c-class Davemurray.jpg Stoker or stylised as ⚡toker is a hard rock band from Cape Town consisting of 2 sets of brothers from two rural country towns in the Western Cape. The current line up was established in 2013 when Redge (lead guitar) and Morgan O'Kennedy (drums) joined Chris (vocals, rhythm guitar) and Jurgen Bornman (bass), the latter two having originally started as a 3-piece with drummer Joe Theron. Pictured is Dave Murray, a big influence on the band.
2017 Dagga Couple c-class The Dagga Couple.jpg The Dagga Couple is a pro-cannabis lobbyist organisation from South Africa founded by Myrtle Clarke and Julian Stobbs after the two were arrested for the possession and dealing in the substance in 2010. Rather than plead guilty, the couple decided instead to sue 7 sectors of government that maintained and enforced the policy of cannabis prohibition in the country resulting in what has been described locally as the Trial of the Plant in 2017.
2017 Oblation c-class SteveBrooks(by Scott Dudelson).jpg Oblation is the third studio album by Florida sludge metal band Floor released on April 25, 2014 on the Season of Mist label. The first original material since previous album, Dove (2004), Oblation followed the bands reunion in 2013 after disbanding in 2003. Critics noted guitarist and singer Steve Brookes' (pictured) use of the "bomb string", an E string that is so loosely strung to the guitar that, in the words of one critic was described as creating a shuddering explosion of sludgy distortion. Another described it as "A guitar string tuned so low it flaps like a pensioner’s bingo-wing".
2017 Wizard Bloody Wizard c-class ElectricWizard by Christian Misje 03.jpg Wizard Bloody Wizard is the ninth studio album by English doom metal band Electric Wizard (pictured) released on November, 17 2017. Recording took place from April, 2016 to February, 2017 at the Satyr IX Recording Studios. Reviewer Dom Lawson said of the album "if you compare this to past triumphs like Come My Fanatics... and Dopethrone – albums that pushed doom metal into heavier and more joyously drug-addled territory than ever before – Wizard Bloody Wizard falls a spliff or two short of the mark."
2017 Death Song start-class Stephanie Bailey 2, The Black Angels, SxSW 2007.jpg Death Song is the fifth studio album by American psychedelic rock band The Black Angels released on April 21, 2017, 4 years after their last album Indigo Meadow. Recording took place during September 2016 at Arlyn, Avast! and Electrokitty Recording Studios. Phil Ek produced, mixed and engineered the album. The album was released to generally favorable reviews scoring 75 on aggregate website Metacritic, based on 12 reviews. Drummer Stephanie Bailey pictured.
2018 All Nerve c-class Breeders Kim Deal.jpg All Nerve is the fifth full-length studio album by American alternative rock band The Breeders set to be released in March 2018, 10 years after their previous album Mountain Battles in 2008. A Stereogum article in June 2016 reported that the band was recording new material at their Ohio studio and in October 2017 they released the first single from the album titled Wait in the Car. 4AD announced on January 9, 2018, that the new album will be made available on March 2, 2018 and released the album's second single, All Nerve on the same day. The album also marks the band's first in 25 years with their Last Splash lineup (pictured).
2018 Floor start-class Floor @ Roadburn 2015 02.jpg Floor is the debut self-titled studio album by Florida sludge metal band Floor (pictured) released in 2002 on the No Idea Records label. After recording EP's and demo's over an approximate ten year period in an attempt to capture the doom-pop sound they have become known for, the bands use of providing the biggest possible sound with minimal guitar work finally paid off. Giving it a positive rating, AllMusic's Gregory Heaney said of the album "...though the riffs here feel, at times, Sunn O)))-like, the thunderous drums help the whole package feel propulsive rather than ponderous."
2018 Dove start-class Floor @ Roadburn 2015 03.jpg Dove is the second studio album by American sludge metal band Floor released in 2004 on the No Idea Records label. The songs on the album were recorded in 1994, before the release of their debut album, Floor in 2002 and were only released ten years later after the positive response the band received to their debut album. As with other Floor compositions the album was recorded without a bass guitar and makes extensive use of heavily down tuned guitars.
