Blokeacola – Jupiter Eats Planets – Jupiter Eats Planets
Released Friday 7th April. The full 6 track EP will be available on Bandcamp only until the autumn. However, the title track ‘Jupiter Eats Planets’ will be available wherever people stream their music, from the aforementioned release date.
Salem Trials – Terminal Boredom / Bored For This – Terminal Boredom / Bored For This
Recorded during the Summer of last year whilst working on a Trilogy of albums (What Myth / Scream Not Working / No Exit Strategy) and didn’t quite fit in anywhere.
Naujawanan Baidar – Aaghaaz/Isyan Dorost Ast – Khedmat Be Khalq
A-fter the success of the brilliant double LP Volume 1 & 2, Ramble is honoured to be releasing in conjunction with Feeding Tube Records, Cardinal Fuzz, and Radio Khiyaban, iconoclastic Afghan-American street music project Naujawanan Baidar’s third album and first new release in three years Khedmat Be Khalq. Originally planned as a “studio debut” in the classic sense, a veritable avalanche of setbacks tangled and delayed the recording process over a span of several years as compounded tragedies – both international and personal – disrupted the project’s intended transition from simply being a ramshackle demo/home-recording outlet for founder N.R. Safi (The Myrrors, et al) into a properly working band. At the end of the day the process of assembling what would eventually become “Khedmat Be Khalq” became a lot like that of the previous two releases: gnarled and sun-baked tracks cut up and collated into a blown out collage of sound.
Blood Moon Wedding – Spell – Blood Moon Wedding: An American Nightmare
An international duet project, created by legendary English punk rocker Steve Lake (Zounds) and American singer Mia Dean. Together they present their gothic-noir, road trip, folktale in the form of Blood Moon Wedding: An American Nightmare, set for release on April 7th via Mobilization Recordings. Encompassing elements of post-punk, psych rock, dark punk, and more and shrouded under a veil of forbidden love and forbidding doom, the album casts its spell and captures an atmosphere that is intimate, otherworldly, and ultimately uplifting. Set in the sprawling deserts of the United States, Lake and Dean find themselves trapped in an alternate reality, where death and love are the only way through the gates of space and time. Exploring themes of mass murder, gun violence, and trauma bonding, it is a dramatic commentary on the violence in American society.
2 Lost Souls – Person Whisperer – 52 Singles Project
Another in the ongoing series
The Infinity Ring – Lazarus Millennium Sun – Nemesis & Nativity
New England-based avant post-industrial collective unleash their Nemesis & Nativity full-length on April 14th via Profound Lore Records. The seeds for what would become this group were planted by Cameron Moretti in the Summer of 2020, drawing together many musicians long active in the Boston metal, punk, and electronic scenes. The initial endeavours of the band started as an experimental take on dark folk music with added elements of drone and noise. The band eventually grew to be an alchemical fusion of experimental rock with many disparate strains from the post-industrial continuum, all delivered with a spiritual and mystic bent.
Walking Bombs – Reach For The Light – Spiritual Dreams Above Empty Promises
Walking Bombs is alternative rock/anti-punk act created by Morgan Y. Evans. Spiritual Dreams Above Empty Promises is an album about trying not to lose hope and to remain centered despite the world’s sorrows and perils. It was written following the passing of Evans’ mother and deals with topics ranging from mortality, spirituality, individuality, gun violence, love, cynicism, freedom of choice, spectator apathy during conflict or bullying, overcoming doubt, and even being startled awake by technology. It is for people trying to remember that cynicism is not as powerful as our deeper hopes, dreams, and empathy.
The Dave Graney Show – Don’t Be True – Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye (2015 Expanded Edition)
Clare Moore takes the lead vocal on this memorable track
Psyclopean – Court Of The Somber Queen – Weedian Trip To Wisconsin
King Crimson – The Court Of The Crimson King – In The Court Of The Crimson King (40th Anniversary)
From the latest Weedian compilation and also on the 19th album from Psyclopean.
Imagine if Syd Barrett-era Pink Floyd was obsessed with reading Jack Vance’s Dying Earth books and watching reruns of In Search Of and early Doctor Who, and instead of band practice they played Dungeons & Dragons in a basement room hazy with pot smoke and plastered in blacklight posters. Followed by the seminal track which the aforementioned title was derived from.
Salem Trials – Super Spreader – Panzer
Exclusive track on new single – not on the forthcoming album “Scream Not Working”
Neon Kittens – Soul Doesn’t Come Easy – Soul Doesn’t Come Easy
First new songs recorded during the sessions for their second album, earlier this year.

MalClango – Sparagazzarre – Sparagazzarre
Italian math-core; post-hardcore; instrumental-rock. 1 drum kit, 2 basses, 3 gorilla masks. Furious melodies and wild polyrhythms. MalClango make fun of music by stripping math rock down to its underwear.
