Zeus - Opera (2013)

A couple of Italian guys playing fuzzy bass and drums. Fans of Japanese band Ruins will really dig this progressive onslaught. Its also released under ThreeOneG records who put out a very similar band call Secret Fun Club from San Diego. Over all this is a fucking awesome album but its hard to really get the feel of what this band is about without seeing them live. Max volume is the key when it comes to these kind of duos. Ripper!

Igorrr - Hallelujah (2012)

Everyone should give this album a listen. even if Breakcore isn't really your thing, I feel everyone can get at least something out of it. I heard about this album through the band Estradasphere's facebook because it features their accordion player Adam Stacey. Maybe breakcore isn't the best way to describe this album. Maybe it should be described more along the lines of BaroqueCore. Classical instrumentation and arrangements backed with brutalised blast beat breakcore and black metal guitar riffs. Even in my description now it sounds pretty fucking odd cheesy but i swear. This is some kind of break through for the genre. Sure Igorrr surely isn't the first artist to true such things. Aphex Twin & Venetian Snares have also dabbled in similar elements but non have come as close as this guy. Fucking killed it!

Lilacs and Champagne - Danish & Blue (2013)

The second release from Emil Amos & Alex Hall from grails. These guys produce sophisticated trip-hop moody, psychedelic, and sometimes sleazy.  Think 60's B-grade cop love drama with some occult sacrifices thrown in. I personally think these guys have found more of their own voice since their self titled release. Smoooooooth.
