High Signs – A Much Larger Ocean (?) The sudden and shocking rasp of vocalist Sam Hargrove from Toronto’s High Signs is more than enough to wake you from a slumber. His cutting, Chuck Reagan-esque bark has the snarl of the Gainesville punker – ravaged and raw and suits their danceable post-punk shuffle to a tea. A Much Larger Ocean is …

Mutoid Man – Melt Your Mind (Sargent House) It’s Mutoid Man! Twirling a guitar around your head, air-drumming until your wrists fall off; it’s all part of the experience spliced together by Koller, Brodsky and of course, the master that is Nick Cageao. Melt Your Mind is just over 2 minutes of speed-thrash-excellence, that’s hella melodic in places (seriously, a lot …

 Mastodon – Show Yourself (Reprise) I don’t know about you, but I love that Brann Dailor is slowly becoming the frontman of Mastodon. Okay, so he’s not really, but ever since he started singing from Crack The Skye onwards, I’ve found their stuff utterly terrific.
