THE WEEKEND GIG
The Wytches - Brighton, Hope


Brighton’s scuzz specialists keep it local tonight. One of the big draws of the recent Great Escape fest, expect this show - in line with a new single with Hate Hate Hate Records - to be nothing but raw and drenched in seaside sweat. (1st June)

THE SONG
NO CODA - Holy War


When you read the lyrics to NO CODA’s ‘Holy War’, it’s safe to argue they indicate a rejection of conformity or regimentation. Introductory tracks rarely come as politicised and disenchanted as NO CODA’s, and the imagery and focus on the corporeal attests and belongs to the same tropes that other notable contemporary Scandinavian punk-influenced artists adhere to. This is a discordant debut that manages to finely balance bleakness with an invigorating and revelatory maelstrom of clamour. [Sean Stanley]

OTHER NEU BUSINESS
Mind Not The Timid - The White Oak
The White Oak by Mind Not The Timid

We’ve all room for a little darkness, but when something’s as celebratory and uncompromisingly fresh-faced as this Mind Not The Timid song, you’ve little reason to consider listening to music of any other mood. Taken from their debut album ‘Beacons’, ‘The White Oak’ is unnecessarily grand, the band’s members comprising of at least a dozen musicians. But the busied atmosphere lends itself to a spirit of rejoice, experienced in glorious communion. You can latch onto your grizzly thoughts if you so wish, but you’ve little means of avoiding being swept away by this fresh-faced Nashville-based gang.
