Smashing poseurs, killing janglecore and defending cybergrind; Pariso have released their first full-length record, ‘Nothing Beyond, Everything After’, and in 29 minutes of music they crush the rest of the UK music scene into submission. Welcoming regular vocalist Mario Gambardella back into the band after his time travelling abroad, normal service is resumed for Parsio. Dissonant riffs and thundering drums densely layer together behind the coarse vocals spouted from the darkest recesses of Mazz‘s being to create a hellish sound.

MC Lars is the ultimate DIY musician. It’s been about 10 years since he started creating his blend of post-punk and laptop hip-hop. To celebrate this, he’s releasing his ‘Greatest Hits’, on vinyl too. In true DIY style, he designed everything himself, even the album artwork, as well as turning to Kickstarter to help fund the project. For those of you not in the know, Kickstarter is a site where artists or all kinds can pitch an idea, asking people for donations and offering limited edition and personal things in return. Lars only asked for $3000 but ended up receiving over $17,000 – an over whelming response.

Codex Leicester are a four piece, formed in late 2010 who fell upon their name from ‘The Codex Leicester’; a collection of largely scientific writings from Leonardo Da Vinci. Of Da Vinci’s thirty plus journals, ‘The Codex Leicester’ is his most famous. An inspiring and interesting story behind the name choice of a band, that’s for sure.

ALBUM: Cats And Cats And Cats – Catsalogue

Release Date: May 28th, 2012
Label: Function Records

Math-pop band Cats And Cats And Cats sadly disbanded earlier this year, after seven long years of enjoying a mildly successful career. The ingeniously names ‘Catsalogue’ is a best of compilation, and their careful selection is a final farewell to their fans. Over their seven years of existence, the band were lucky enough to play Glastonbury twice and share stages with the likes of Foals, Blood Red Shoes and 65daysofstatic. Listening to what they deem to be the best songs of their career means we’re in for a treat.

For those of you not in the know, not only is MC Lars an exceptional DIY musician, but he is also a phenomenally clever guy. He has a BA in American Literature and is planning on doing a Masters and a PHD in his field. I mean, he studied at Corpus Christi College in Oxford for Christ’s sake. So, I can safely say that he knows what he’s talking about.

Finally, Milton Keynes based metallers Heart Of A Coward have self-released their debut record, ‘Hope & Hindrance’. Defining themselves as “UK Groove Metal”, with influences from such heavy as fuck bands as Meshuggah as well as old school heroes Pantera, it’s easy to imagine what might come from this record. ‘citing!
