Mentallo & The Fixer
Album: Arrange the Molecule
Blurb: Mentallo & The Fixer returns with a new album bypassing the group’s prior sounds for something more experimental with complicated programming and an absence of song structure.
Dead by April
Category: Pop / Metal / Electro
Album: Worlds Collide
Blurb: Dead by April returns with another foray into the metal/electro-pop genre with an album that boggles the mind as to how such an avant-garde attempt at crossing genres comes across as staggeringly boring and uninspired.
Category: Electronic / Ambient / Alternative
Blurb: Less aggressive than his other bands, but just as intense and poignant in its songwriting, this album marks a fine solo outing from one of the Chicago industrial scene’s most creative and celebrated figures.
Project .44 vs. En Esch
Category: Industrial / Rock
Album: Murder Weapon/Forty Four
Blurb: Chicago industrial/rock at its finest with this double A side single offering a taste of what’s in store on the band’s upcoming 2018 album.
Category: Electro / New Wave / Synthpop
Album: Promiscuous Tendencies
Blurb: More than a little trashy but oh so irresistibly catchy is the sound of Junksista, bridging synthwave and dancehall into another sexually charged party album from the German duo.
