Stream And Destroy 09.09.22 // 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.

Victoria is another fantastic cut from the new material by Brutus. Vocalist Stefanie Mannaerts says that it's about “getting older. You know grown-up life is lurking around the corner, but you’re not afraid of what’s coming, because we’re all going to go down together.” Adds bassist Peter Mulders: “Victoria has always felt nostalgic for us. Back to the old Brutus days. The guitar riff has been around since 2013, but it is only now that it shines in a full song. What can be seen as a quieter song with a normal song structure, turned out to be a huge step for us to take. We can’t hide behind effects, tempo changes, shouts or blasts.

As The Moon Rests, A.A. Williams' second album, is due out on October 7th, 2022. "It is sometimes possible to find ourselves in a situation unable to be objective, unable to see one’s part in the greater picture," the artist says about single, Golden. "Sometimes we are even the root of a problem we didn’t even realise was occurring. Golden speaks of the push and pull between enjoying being in a loving situation, yet simultaneously, unwittingly, ruining it."

"This song explores the ways we seek validation and how it motivates the way we interact with the world around us," punk rockers, THICK, say about the title track of their new album, Happy Now.

One more good album is in the bag for Crippled Black Phoenix who have released Banefyre. About highlight track Bonefire, singer and percussionist Belinda Kordic says that the track is "targeted at the politicians, who’re some of the wealthiest people around, and also the most un-empathetic sons of bitches towards the poorest and most vulnerable in our society. These people in government have the power to change things around, make a difference, but they choose not to."

Night Crawling, a new song by John Cale, is said to harken back to the seventies pre-disco era in New York City. Cale comments: "There was this period around mid-late '70s when David [Bowie] and I would run into each other in NY. There was plenty of talk about getting some work done but of course we'd end up running the streets, sometimes until we couldn't keep a thought in our heads, let alone actually get a song together! One night we managed to meet up for a benefit concert where I taught him a viola part so we could perform together. When I wrote Night Crawling, it was a reflective moment of particular times. That kind of NYC that held art in its grip, strong enough to keep it safe and dangerous enough to keep it interesting."

Singapore's Wormrot returned with their final album. Hiss is a fantastic full length that blends grind brutality with melodious moments in a very cohesive manner. This great band's journey obviously culminates in a spectacular final chapter.

The very productive Tropical Fuck Storm released Moonburn, a cassette EP via Joyful Noise which includes an odd cover of The Stooges' Ann, with lead vocals by bassist Fiona Kitschin.
