What I Heard This Morning: Tempo No Tempo & Railcars...

Tempo No Tempo. Not so much vocally, but their song, “The Rat (Part One),” sounds like Goo era Sonic Youth meets Fugazi, sort of Ranaldo/Moore quality guitar shrieks kept in line by a thick, funk-drive low end. Their self-released album, Waking Heat, will be released 10/20.

”The Rat (Part One)”



And while we’re on the topid of “shrieks,” noise pounders Railcars could quite possibly be the resultant offspring of a courtship between Alec Empire, Wavves and Animal Collective. Weird? Yeah. The album Cathedral With No Eyes will be available on 10/6. In the meantime, check out “Castles.”

”Castles”
