118 Sólstafir, Ólafur Arnalds, Vennart and Bitch Falcon

Steve and Remfry have had a busy week, not only do they claim to have won the US election (that’s how it works right?) they also have plenty of new music to listen to. Lots of music. A whole load of music. A lot of people are saying they listen to the most music of everyone… ahem…

We review new releases from Sólstafir, Ólafur Arnalds, Vennart, Bitch Falcon, Mountain Caller and This Be The Verse.

Plus, we chat about the latest live streams from The Bronx, Puscifer, Mr. Bungle and Code Orange.

18 – Burned on the Retina of my Mind? (feat. Mike Vennart)

With just 31 days left of 2018, Steve and Remfry delve into albums released over the past 11 months that they missed first time around. In the first part of this two part round-up, the boys look at albums by The Armed, itoldyouiwouldeatyou, Louise Lemón, Ovlov, Kississippi, Ólafur Arnalds and Twenty One Pilots.

Elsewhere, Remfry sat down with current Vennart/ex-Oceansize main man Mike Vennart to discuss his top five Iron Maiden songs. Remfry stuck around to review the show as well as shows from Pijn, Mogwai, Earthtone9 and Pitchshifter, whilst Steve went to see Therapy?. Plus, this week’s trade-off is The Smashing Pumpkins’ 2011 Oceania for Sugar’s Copper Blue.
