Stream And Destroy 05.21.21 // Weekly Roundup

Stream And Destroy is a weekly feature on D//E in which we round up tracks and releases we didn't cover canonically during the current week. It's complementary to our regular posts and publishes on Friday release day. Oddments from previous weeks may appear.

There's much to anticipate in the coming days, and despite the slow week, there was still music which stood out. Aligned with D//E's regular posts, this is another edition of Stream And Destroy.

Easy To Build, Hard To Destroy is a compilation of rarities and obscurities from the early days of British experimental rockers Gnod. “We just wanted to jam really and see what happened” says founding members Paddy Shine. “That led us down the road of constructing a vibe or an atmosphere for playing live. We played a lot of squats, house gigs and parties in the early days. We lived in each others pockets - shared ideas, books, films etc. We just got on one. Some heads came along for the ride. Good times.

IIVII is visual artist Josh Graham, also of A Storm of Light and former member of Neurosis. Crystaline Beasts was part of the project's album Grinding Teeth / Zero Sleep, and it now comes paired to a dark and moody new visual created by Chariot of Black Moth.

Dreampop artist, AMMO, releases a video for a very expressive take on The Sound's Total Recall, originally part of the recent compilation, Do You Feel That Way Too? A Tribute to The Sound on Dune Altar.

Monster Magnet release another clip off their much anticipated covers album, A Better Dystopia, this time for a track originally by a contemporary band, the dearest Table Scraps.

For a nice throwback of hardcore punk goodness, Neon Christ, featuring William DuVall (BL’AST!, Comes With The Fall, Alice In Chains), Jimmy Demer (Gardens of.., Accidents), Danny Lankford (Gardens of.., GoDevils, Accidents) and Randy DuTeau (Gardens of), share a new video for their self-titled track, lifted from the coming 1984 deluxe LP which will be out on Record Store Day, a co-release on Southern Lord and DVL.

Another old flame comes from nineties Bay Area anarcho-punks Spitboy who will be releasing a compilation of their full discography titled Body Of Work (1990-1995) through Don Giovvani. What Are Little Girls Made Of? which originally appeared on the band's split Los Crudos in 1995, now streams in its remastered version.

"The third single is a 10-minute cosmic journey," says YAGOW’s Jan Werner about the band's new single off the forthcoming album, The Mess. "What provides the basis for our sound is the groove - in the form of a drone, a drum pattern, or a riff as a musical phrase that is repeated over and over again. If you keep repeating it persistently enough, you don’t have to worry about the rest. At some point this is where the magic happens. And this idea is mirrored in our very own kaleidoscope screensaver!"

God Is An Astronaut release another artful video off their very good latest album Ghost Tapes #10, this time for a track inspired by the poem Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening by Robert Frost.
