UPDATED: I tried to use the full name of the bands using the proper "greater than" and "less than" symbols used, but it freaked blogger out, so we're left with what we've got.

And here are some pics from the Faith No More set at Austin City Music Hall on Sunday. It was hot as hell in that place, and we saw more folks escorted out by security than i've ever seen at a concert before, but FNM were unstoppable. And they played "Everything's Ruined" and "King for a Day." I'm still giddy.
Holodeck Records. Part video game adventure, part schlock horror score, part driving through European tunnels at night, the EP pulses and blips and thumps, a portal to some pixelated wonderland. Listen to "Blasted Highway" below and get the record or cassette here.

Adult Swim. "Eyehatethou" is a tribute of sorts (at least in title) to fellow Louisianan metalheads Eyehategod, and it's a heavy, bombastic piece of sludge. Start your day off right. Listen and download below.

Last evening, i was able to catch a free show by Austin's Afro-psych-soul-funk masters Golden Dawn Arkestra. I'm pretty sure they blew my two-year old's mind. Here are a couple pics below and listen to the band's "Selemat."

In The Red. Listen to "Pollinate" below, and be sure to look for me at that band's set at this year's Fun Fun Fun Fest in November.

Milan Records. The most recent is Basil Poledouris' score for Paul Verhoeven's 1987 satiric action masterpiece "Robocop." Awesome. And check out the excellent album cover from Jay Shaw. Listen to "Drive Montage" below and grab the record here.

Adult Swim free singles coming out this summer are a diverse bag of goodies. The latest comes from reunited shoegazers Swervedriver, following up their reunion record from last year. "Winter Depths" is a cold and glowing little number, meant for post-dusk meanderings or late night introspective thinking. Long live Swervedriver. Listen below and download here.

Rustblade Records' reissue of Simonetti's score for the 1985 film "Demons," prog-horror goofiness at its very best. And, it's limited to 666 copies pressed on blue vinyl. I'd be an idiot not to buy this. Watch the "trailer" for the album release below. And for God's sake, go watch "Demons" if you've never seen it. It's a lot of fun.

Death Waltz Records' foray into non-soundtrack releases, aptly titled Death Waltz Originals, has been pretty damn cool, featuring music from Umberto, PYE Corner Audio, and more. The latest is an EP from UK duo Black Channels, a blending of horror film score aesthetic, gothic synths, haunting folk vocals, and patches of industrial ambience. Listen to "Oracles" and "Depth of Field" below and get the record here.
