Stream And Destroy 10.01.21 // 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. The feature now comes with an accompanying playlist on Spotify.

Every leaf is a flower these days. Albert Camus wrote that first, and better. Here's another edition of Stream And Destroy.

Full Of Hell frontman Dylan Walker comments on Eroding Shell, the band's latest single and video: “Eroding Shell is about living in fear of the unpredictable and violent nature of your fellow human beings and the atrocities we are capable of committing when life is boiled down to survival and mob logic.

One year after their self-titled debut, SPICE return with a two-song EP, and first track, A Better Treatment, is an affecting and rather heartrending piece.

Another dark specimen from new doom duo The Answer Lies In The Black Void, the video for their gothic rocker, Mina, pays homage to Francis Ford Coppola's classic Bram Stoker's Dracula. The duo comment: “Forlorn explores the sacred union of the divine feminine and masculine, the light and the dark, the shadows that hide within and the trials of love, lust and loss.

Heavy noise rockers THE ARMED reveal a stunning performance clip of Where Man Knows Want from their upcoming full length feature film ULTRAPOP: Live at the Masonic.

Divide and Dissolve collaborate with Moor Mother on a vocal reimagining of their instrumental track Mental Gymnastics whose original version appears on their very strong recent album, Gas Lit. In the duo's own words: “Collaborating with Moor Mother is a dream. We believe Camae’s work is extraordinary and admire how time and space are dismantled/take on new meaning with the art. Our artwork weaves effortlessly together. We are very grateful. Moor Mother’s work represents a future where we are alive and well.

With their debut album, Unmask Whoever, having gone a bit under the radar, art rock supergroup Activity still seem very creative, and like an act which has much more to give. Text the Dead is their new single and video, coming ahead of the band's US tour.

Copenhagen sludge/post metal band LLNN have released their new album UNMAKER through Pelagic Records, and it's a pretty massive endeavor which needs some thorough listening sessions in order to be grasped completely. On Desecrator the band join forces with Matt McGachy of Cryptopsy.

No wave greats The Bush Tetras will release Rhythm and Paranoia: The Best of Bush Tetras, a 3LP/2CD box set which covers their entire career and includes unreleased bonus tracks. Cutting Room is one of them, produced by Henry Rollins.

Springtime are composed of Gareth Liddiard (Tropical Fuck Storm, The Drones), Jim White (Dirty Three) and Chris Abrahams (The Necks), and Will To Power is their first single off a self-titled album expected on November 5th, 2021 via Joyful Noise.

Constant Smiles sign to Sacred Bones and prepare for the new album, Paragons, coming on November 12th, 2021, with the very warm and lively Run to Say being the introductory single and video.

Touché Amoré released an album's worth of demos from their excellent latest full length, Lament, as part of the latest Bandcamp Friday. Persist is a song which wasn't included in the album, but doesn't sound like something that lacks in anything.

More Bandcamp Friday goodness comes through Take Sides, an EP of remixes released by Mogwai, including IDLES, Other Two (New Order's Stephen Morris and Gillian Gilbert) and Alessandro Cortini.
