De Facto - Megaton Shotblast (2001)


The Mars Volta before they were the Mars Volta. Originally a three piece consisting of Cedric, Omar, Jeremy, they hooked up with Ikey and started cranking out the dublicious tunes. I don't know a fucking thing about dub music but I do know that this record is fucking amazing.

Released on GSL.

Daughters - Hell Songs (2006)


DAUGHTERS were one of the many off-beat "grind" bands that emerged from the whole Locust rip off scene. First album is basically Locust worship with better drumming and Arab On Radar guitars instead of keyboards. Nothing wrong with that but on this album they traded their piss colored Locust LPs in for some Birthday Party tapes. Longer songs with more conventional structures but still the face grating guitars and technical fills along with Nick Cave channeling vocals. I love this album.

Hydra Head is a label out of Los Angeles run by Aaron Turner of ISIS.
