D//E Playlist: Stream And Destroy Vol. 22

The 22nd edition of Stream And Destroy finds the world at its darkest and most dystopian version in a long time, and compiles a dozen of the finest from March 2020, this time through a bit of a heavier as well as more mental direction.

The great Belgian post hardcore trio, Brutus, released a new single that follows the same path as the very much emotional Nest from 2019, mingling a few diverse styles and cutting through deeply like every time. San Francisco punks Western Addiction join forces with producer Jack Shirley and introduced their coming LP, Frail Bray, with a dynamite of a track about “degenerate art in the 1920s and 30s.” Psychedelic stoner rockers, Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs, also have a new album ready for release, and from all appearances thus far it is going to make quite an impact.

Composed of members of Full of Hell, Backslider and Triac, super heavy band, Eye Flys, will follow their 2019 EP with a full length for which the bar has already been set very high, while heavy rock veterans, Old Man Gloom, released an electric new album which combines the production talents of three big names, Matt Bayles (Minus The Bear, Mastodon, Isis), Kurt Ballou (Converge), and Randall Dunn (Sunn O))), Earth). Rising Brit punks, Milk Teeth, unveiled a fantastic grunge rocker as a single ahead of their self-titled sophomore LP which was just released in its entirety.

Dutch band Radar Men From The Moon – now stylized as RMFTM, don’t stay enough within the constraints of a specific genre, and try their hand at a more post punk-bent sound as they make way for their upcoming sixth album, The Bestial Light.

Consistently weird and very productive, Tropical Fuck Storm, keep delivering, this time with the help of Amy Taylor of Amyl and The Sniffers, Dan Kelly and Sean Powell of Surfbort, and impress again with a peculiar track themed on cults.

Indie rock veterans, Throwing Muses, return from a seven year absence only to prove that the band hasn’t lost its ability to influence and inspire, with the new single Dark Blue sounding very engaging. New York’s Activity, composed of members from Grooms, Field Mouse and Russian Baths, have a very intriguing debut full length out, recorded and mixed by Psychic TV’s Jeff Berner, while Canadian duo, Bysts, have put out a new single, once again showcasing their genre mixing qualities through a full sound that appears all dark, rich and mesmeric.

Chicago’s Dead Lucid make the most of their psych-bent and very much vigorous post punk sound on their new EP, Desolation, which opens with a haunting and notably Joy Division-esque piece, setting the right mood for the rest of the solid five-song release.
