Earthling (stylised as EART HL I NG) is the 20th studio album by English recording artist David Bowie. It was originally released in February 1997 on Arista Records. The album showcases an electronica-influenced sound partly inspired by the industrial and drum and bass culture of the 1990s. It was the first album Bowie self-produced since his 1974 album Diamond Dogs.

Bragolin is a two-piece post-punk / wave band from Utrecht, The Netherlands. The name is inspired by Italian painter Giovanni Bragolin, famous for his crying boy paintings. The band is led by songwriter/singer/guitarist Edwin van der Velde, with Maria Karssenberg on guitar and organ. Bragolin’s sound contains a mixture of baritone guitars reminding of 80’s new wave bands, to 90’s reverb laden shoegaze guitars. Instead of the music which the guitar sounds resemble, the mixture with pounding drummachines and bass synthesizers creates Bragolin’s danceable wave sound. The songs vary from pulsating and addictive riffs in their first released music video ‘Into Those Woods’, to the apocalyptic atmospheres of ‘In Our Field Of Oaks’ which contains guest vocals by dark pop singer Adam Usi. The organ sound, the horror movie inspired lyrics and touching voice complete their unpredicted haunting sound. In 2018 the band released their 8-track debut album ‘I Saw Nothing Good So I Left’ which was recorded by Van der Velde and former band member Isolde Woudstra who also takes credit for the mesmerizing album cover and vocals on the album’s title track. The release was produced by René Jongeneelen of Malochia and Contrast, and was released on Young & Cold Records. Maria Karssenberg joined Bragolin on guitar and organ before the release of the album, after which the two-piece played at various festivals and parties across Europe, among which Wave Gotik Treffen, Extramuralhas, Waveteef, Wavefest and Young & Cold Festival. For their second album Bragolin teamed up with Adam Tristar to release the ‘Bragolin vs Adam Tristar’ album ‘Let Out The Noise Inside’. This is not a split release but a true cooperation featuring the danceable and electronic sound of Adam Tristar combined with the dark atmosphere and vocals of Bragolin. In the summer of 2019 the collaboration released their first single ‘The End Dwells In Us All’, a new uptempo dance floor killer featuring a hypnotizing arpeggiated synth, catchy bariton guitar riff, ghostly musical saw and melancholic vocals with serial killer inspired lyrics. During the year Adam Tristar has also joined Bragolin on stage for a limited amount of shows. After the single the full album was released on CD and vinyl, again on Young & Cold Records. The album features eight songs of which six are new and two songs where each band covered / remixed the other.

“Cauldron Messiah”, the debut album from German-based trio EVIL SPIRIT, is as fine a rendering of the Devil’s music as one is likely to find. The group formed in 2010, releasing a pair of demos before completing their first full-length effort. With its primitive instrumental crunch and spine-tingling tempos, “Cauldron Messiah” is a sulfurous ode to all things dark and heavy.

CIVIC aren’t the first Australian band to find inspiration from the rowdy sounds of The Saints and The Dead Boys but few have been as on point as the Melbourne five-piece at nailing their snarling spirit. Jim McCullough, Lewis Hodgson, Darcy Grigg, Roland Hlavka and David Forcier have played in a bunch of quality bands including Leather Lickers, A.D Skinner, Drug Sweat, Pregnancy Scares, Whipper and Cuntz. But with CIVIC, they mix loud 70s gutter rock and hardcore aggression to create a squalling hot mess. Late last year, they all crammed into a small radio studio to perform a hustling live set on my radio program Teenage Hate . It was wild and sweaty performance and I’ve been eagerly awaiting some recorded material since. Today is the day as we premiere “New Vietnam”, the title cut from their upcoming debut record. Led by the wild vocals of McCullough, who by day works as a furniture removalist, and Hodgson’s furious guitar leads, the song gallops at a speedy pace. As Jimmy howls “Tell you what I am baby, tell you what I am” you can almost feel the weight of shitty dressers that he hauls up and down people’s staircases.
