___

Dunedin’s punk sons of the modern age, Die! Die! Die! are ready to bust through the back door with their fifth album under their grubby arm pits, stoked as punch to have pulled together their next blistering installment in the Die! Die! Die! legacy.

‘SWIM’ is an 11 track opus formed from the wall-sweat of Europe’s best clubs, scratched off the tour van floor and from down the back of the couch-surfed accom. Produced by the band and Chris Townend (Portishead, D12, Violent Femmes) from The Lab in Auckland to Lightship 95 in London, SWIM’s sparse geographical consummation is as expansive as their definition of punk and pop music. As an internet acronym for ‘someone who isn’t me’, SWIM’s title suggests that Andrew Wilson is stepping out of his own comfort zone lyrically and bringing new themes and broader strokes to the mighty crash and boom of Die! Die! Die!’s sound. Indeed he has described it himself as “an album about surviving... which is very positive”.

Description

Burning Alms formed during 2012 around the long-running musical partnership of guitarist/vocalist John Biggs and drummer Tom Whitfield (both ex-Calories and Distophia). Debut album "In Sequence" recalls Hot Snakes, Glenn Branca, Swans and Sun Kil Moon in a wonderfully woozy collection of noise-pop cuts, acoustic ballads and droning instrumental experiments.

Description

Dunedin’s punk sons of the modern age, Die! Die! Die! are ready to bust through the back door with their fifth album under their grubby arm pits, stoked as punch to have pulled together their next blistering installment in the Die! Die! Die! legacy.

The band release the single "Get Hit" from their fifth studio album 'SWIM' via Smalltown America on 15th August.

The clip for "Get Hit" from Dunedin trio, Die! Die! Die!’s latest record ‘SWIM’ is all about control. An MMA fighter stands still and slowly takes on multiple bruises and cuts. As he is ‘backed into a corner’ physically and metaphorically, aggressive bass is coupled with swinging fists; screaming guitar illustrates the tightening of muscles. A frantic and high energy clip that denotes perfectly the band’s combative sound - the video was shot on location in NZ by director Ryan Harte.

Tracklisting

Can't Make You Come Back

Description

'Can't Make You Come Back' is the first single to be taken from Our Krypton Son's forthcoming mini album 'A Graveyard Of Stars'.

An emotive paean to lost love, 'Can't Make You Come Back' sees Derry native Chris McConaghy return to our radio dials in gloriously sombre mood.

The song's beautiful lyric offers the listener solace that with the passing of time, all things - even those that hurt deeply, will eventually pass. "Seems we're always on the run / Spinning circles round this pagan sun".

Tinkling glockenspiel and delicate background vocals, frame this wonderful performance of a track that has become a fan favourite in Our Krypton Son sets.

Shot on location in Co. Antrim, the clip (directed by Tristan Crowe) features Chris making his way through Whitepark Bay's winter beach and forest; intercut with our singer penning a last message for his lover, placing it in a bottle and casting it into the Atlantic. The closing shots are of a man, alone once again by a campfire enjoying a banana.

Bananas are clearly the best cure for a broken heart if you live in Our Krypton Son's world.

Description

When Béla Lugosi was trapped in his final death fight with the electric octopus in Ed Wood's 'Bride of the Monster' did he whine, did he complain? No, he got back in the saddle and put forth a perfectly professional performance.

Everyone has to face their own electric octopus at some time. When it became Jetplane Landing's time (after six years of hibernation and contemplation) to face their fears - their mollusc of justice if you like, this friends, is exactly, without any studio trickery or editing whatsoever, what they sounded like!

Vive La réalité.

Beat Generation …Ha!

Description

The second single to be taken from Jetplane Landing's fourth studio album 'Don't Try', “Beat Generation… Ha!” is a meditation on being an outsider, written (in part) from the perspective of the oft-overlooked writer Gregory Corso.

Jetplane state - “Who said creativity should ever come from anything less than rage, than from terror, than from isolation? Not us; not Corso; not others: "If you're going to try, go all the way. There is no other feeling like that. You will be alone with the gods, and the nights will flame with fire."
