Common Enemy: As the World Burns

Common Enemy: As the World Burns

It’s amazing bands like this still exist, it really is.  It makes some of us realize how old we really are, that dreadful feeling of “been there done that” about a million times, the “heard it all” sensation, the “back in my day” sensation, also the “why does this still go on and when will […]

Cold Body Radiation: Deer Twilight

Cold Body Radiation: Deer Twilight

Going through the old box of submissions from the previous editor, we came upon two by the needs-more-recognition label Dusktone.  Its goal has been to release music of the dark and gloomy, paraphrasing from the official site, so it’s always a pleasure during the winter months to receive something from them.  This, and another soon-to-be-reviewed-by-us […]

Shitfucker Interview

Shitfucker Interview

Shitfucker hail from nasty Detroit, some say the most bankrupt city in America. Others, upon listening to the music of this deranged trio, will probably say that the city is also morally corrupt. Shitfucker’s latest is titled Suck Cocks in Hell and was released by ‘major metal indie’ Hell’s Headbangers, a move that is bound […]

Squat Club: Corvus

Squat Club: Corvus

The previous editor, God rest his tragic soul, sent a bunch of hard copy promos before the address was changed to the current one.  We like surprises here at Deaf Sparrow, those random, lo-fi cassettes that hide treasures within.  So in a box full of this kind of thing, there had to be at least […]

Belcher/Bivins Double Quartet: EXO

Belcher/Bivins Double Quartet: EXO

Really dig this label, the guy usually doesn’t send anything to explain what he’s doing, just a disc, nicely packaged, with that cool label logo on the back, nothing more.  Not even sure if it’s a dude, to be honest, could be a ‘chick’ as they say, or perhaps ‘gurl’, is that how it’s spelled […]

MirrorBlaze: Triumph of the Villain

MirrorBlaze: Triumph of the Villain

Still kind of confused about this band name.  It’s written as MirrorBlaze, just like that, but it appears in separation in their logo.  As to what it means, we’ll leave that up to you.  MirrorBlaze are a three-piece thrash outfit from Bangladesh who banded together in 2007.  Triumph of the Villain is their first full-length, […]

The Blood Spattered Bride

The Blood Spattered Bride

Seriously, some of this box art from the old VHS days, when things came in boxes bigger than your head or in shiny clamshells, really, just wow sometimes.  At other times come on, stop leading us on!  Case in point, this film, because the girl you see on the cover appears nowhere in the actual movie […]

Mai Mai Mai: Theta

Mai Mai Mai: Theta

Tony C. of noise rock act Hiroshima Rocks Around and spastic-pop duo Trouble Vs. Glue, decided to take us on a new exciting sonic trip through dense soundscapes, abstract beats and immense noise. The purpose of this journey is sonic experimentation and Tony C. definitely knows how to go about in order to achieve extreme outcomes from his music. So […]

Niveau Zero: Jasmine

Niveau Zero: Jasmine

Ad Noiseam needs so much more attention.  And we need to stop saying that because should you check every review we’ve done for the label in the past, it’s probably at the start of all of them.  It’s clear the guy’s doing something right, because most of the electronic we receive tends to be of […]

Stampkase: Mechanorganism

In the history of modern chug-a-lug, there are bands who chug, some who lug, and some who chug and lug, thus the title of this modern genre that we only now created. Being masters of both the pun and onomatopoeia, we figured we’d provide the very most in accuracy and tagging for all of you […]
