No Anchor – The Golden Bridge

‘No Anchor’ released ‘The Golden Bridge’ on the 26th of November.

Instead of going out, buying an electric guitar then using effects to make it sound like a bass guitar, ‘No Anchor’ have forgone that and instead have 2 bassists in their band, no electric guitarist needed.

‘Loose Gravel’ plays off gritty, strained vocals against groove-filled guitars that descend into chaos at the 3 minute mark.

‘Oh Kill’ is an absolute nugget of a track. Hard out, straight to the point all the while throwing in some pretty clever insightful lyrics.

‘Slabs’ is a perfected slow-build track, each riff gets louder alternating with an extra drum beat or cymbal smash till you are getting absolutely pulverized.

If this is a case that more sludge metal bands should just use bass guitars, I’m sold.

Laura – The Slow

‘Laura’ released ‘The Slow’ single on the 7th of August 2012. ‘The Slow’ is originally off ‘Twelve Hundred Times’ which was released in October of 2011.

‘Laura’ are a great representation of how good post-rock can sound.

‘The Slow’ is an absolute masterpiece, showing what this band does best by massing layers together as you anticipate the climax of the song.

‘Aircraft on Blue Sea’ once again starts out with intricate guitar work that slowly builds adding noise till the crescendo is met with dramatic strings at the forefront.

Do yourself a favour and give it a listen.
