D//E Playlist: Stream And Destroy Vol. 17

Playlisting on D//E returns from its summer hiatus with a new version of Stream and Destroy. Volume 17 is composed of a dozen great tracks from the past few weeks, and introduces Elvis Rust on the cover image.

Their attempt to cover new ground and take chances, is successful as expected, as the prolific Touché Amoré have come up with new single, Deflector, produced by nu metal master, Ross Robinson.

Michigan's Greet Death will be following their solid debut, Dixieland from 2017, with their sophomore LP, New Hell, introduced by the gazey, Do You Feel Nothing?.

It's taken many years for the legendary Kim Gordon to devise her first ever solo LP, and from all appearances it was worth the wait. Air BnB has that avant-garde and eccentric spark, like everything in Gordon's influential body of work. Another eminent act, power pop trio, Vivian Girls, reunited after their demise in 2014, and put together Memory, a wonderful, fresh album, sounding as if they never went away.

Riding on the success of their latest LP, Iran Iraq IKEA, Swedish modern psych rockers, Les Big Byrd, deliver a driving, krautrock-infused piece, a first sample from the band's new material. South Carolina's Hundredth bring their fusion of post hardcore and shoegaze to fine use with a series of singles in 2019, the final of which is Iridescent, ending the run on a very high note.

Composed of members of Simon Doom, Doomriders and American Nightmare, new punk band, Spiral Heads, start things off with a solid bang, as Baby’s Got Bangs is a very infectious punk rocker. San Francisco dreampop band, No Vacation, will be soon delivering their new EP, Phasing, while the always creative, Mat Sweet aka Boduf Songs, is about to release his seventh full length. Unseen Forces and How to Use Them is another atmospheric piece that carries Sweet's signature downheartedness. Equally wistful and distinctively exploratory, the instrumental Crisis is another release from the forthcoming EP of the great Saudade collective led by Chuck Doom.

Where metal and shoegaze collide, not many do it better than Alcest, who have a new album ready for release, and the quite melancholic, Sapphire, expresses the strong impact of the band's shoegaze aspect.

Peter Ivers, a historic underground persona, musician and TV host, left this world way too early, but left behind many recordings to remember his weirdness by. In Heaven is a song he wrote with David Lynch, of which a different rendition found its way in Eraserhead and the film's matchless "lady in the radiator" sequence. A new compilation of such gems, Becoming Peter Ivers, arrives in November.
