Gabe Gonzalez A legendary release for me. Bonkers musical abilities shine on this but don't take away from the musical ideas, which are weird in the best possible way. Favorite track: Shirts.

neonophile This album is really fuckin harsh. Prepare your ears for annihilation that leaves you hungry for more.

Adam Trujillo This was my go-to record for the fall of 2017. That noisey, Jesus Lizard-y sound is just classic. Favorite track: The Sadness of Axl Rose.

luke sesh acerbic punk in the vein of pissed jeans and jesus lizard. tough riffs. good music to listen to on the way to work. Favorite track: Priss.

Rob May Amazing tension and release, with a consistent destructive tone that never gets tired or boring. In a year of everyone hyping R&B and indie releases, it's such a welcome addition. Will probably end up in my top 5 year-end. Favorite track: Weasel Bastard.

"I'm not messin' around here, I set a good example"

With a little bit of the old ultraviolence and moloko plus plus plus comes Leeds' original busters and library-farters Blacklisters, with their sophomore album 'Adult'.

Ten tracks of post-modern, post-hipster, post-society noise rock that sizzles and crumbles all up in your listening device and baller-buds that feels just oh-so right whilst riding the bus to work in the morning staring at the faces around you with a mix of apathy, disdain and outright hatred. Cheers to fellow man!

A ferocious mix of bangin', angular noise rock and reckless, dick-swinging punk with one foot and a pinky in Drive Like Jehu, Jesus Lizard and old Wire records, "Adult" is sure to be your new, go-to slab o' nine-tails for self-flagellation and fucking up society from the inside. Give 'em a swing for me!

Blacklisters are Billy Mason Wood (vocals), Dan Beesley (guitar), Owen Griffiths (bass) and Alistair Stobbart (drums). The Leeds band have earned a reputation as a formidable live act through aggressive, confrontational performances riddled with dark humor, drawing comparisons to The Jesus Lizard and Pissed Jeans. Over the past few years, the Leeds quartet has deservedly earned their reputation as one of the UK's most confrontational and aggressive live acts.

Adult, their forthcoming second album was recorded at Suburban Home Studios in Leeds with producer Matt Johnson, aka MJ of Hookworms. The album is a clear progression for the band, and demonstrates a growing confidence in their song writing and performance, from the abstract art-noise to the unrelenting, brutally minimalist riffs that first put them on the radar.

“Buried beneath the noise and feedback is a tightly coiled sense of dynamics, punctuated by angular shards of guitar…splendidly fucked up” – Kerrang!
