Not really. Like 90% of the time or more that I am browsing Beex I don’t want to actually play music, or go on Spotify. It doesn’t seem crazy to think to mention it.

So you didn’t care that much to find out then. That’s fine

Why would you need to know the band's name, then? Absurd.

(for the avoidance of doubt, snooker's Steve Davis is NOT a member of notorious NSBM band Absurd, though that would be very funny.)

What a strange way to hold a conversation.

A: Steve Davis from the snooker is in a new band; I’ve sent you a link, give them a listen!
B: Sure, just not right now. What are they called?
A: I’m not telling you. You obviously don’t want to know.
B: I do want to know, I just don’t want to check them out right now.
A: No, you do not want to know this or you would have checked out the link I already sent you.

Madness.

Bruv, if you had asked, I'd have cheerfully told you. I mean, the most important piece of information there is that Steve Davis is in a band with someone from Coil, c'mon.

Either you'll process that information—Coil? The lads that done the soundtrack to the Gay Man's Guide To Safer Sex and the How To Destroy Angels thing with Marc Almond? That Coil?—and make at the very least a mental bookmark to have a look later, or you'll blankly pass over it with no regard for snooker, early industrial, or krautrock.

Besides, not putting the name in that post gives it an air of mystery, yeah? You can enjoy the thrill of discovering the name for yourself, savour it. Maybe pretend you're a wild journo for The Quietus or something.

If we were having a conversation, I’d agree, but you would have found out quicker and caused others less effort If you’d just clicked the link than to ask and then wait for a response. It’s just sad how lazy people have become.

That’s not what happened, though. It was:

A: Steve Davis from the snooker is in a new band; I’ve sent you a link, give them a listen!
B: They’re called _______ by the way
C: People could just click the link
D: But why should they? What if they don’t want to click the link
E-Z: repetition of most of the above.

clipping, then. They're one of those cool and mysterious bands who are in all lowercase and release stuff on Sub Pop and that. Their new album dropped last week—it's called There Existed An Addiction To Blood, and it's superb.

They're a hip-hop thing, but in that weird, experimental way that bands like dälek and cLOUDDEAD were (see, more case weirdness. Must be something to do with drugs.) The producers are a Hollywood composer and a harsh noise artist, and the MC won a Tony for being in Hamilton and is apparently a regular on Sesame Street. But fucking hell. Fucking hell, they're good.

The new album is a horrorcore throwback; that strange little 90's subgenre where tension and, well, horror replaced gangsta bragging. The music is strangely drawn out, drones and NOISES and enormous beats that sound like (and probably are) manipulated concrete recordings. Actual Noise, too—Pedestrian Deposit and The Rita are guests.

It's not just pretentious noise wankery though, there are hooks and beats and some absolutely ridiculous rapping. 'Story 7' has actual polymetrics, flipping between 5/4 and 7/4 with a rhyme scheme that pulls them both into a standard 4/4, as if Meshuggah decided to have a go at the rap singing. There are all sorts of playful modulations, with bars suddenly dropping into swung triplets as the story get more tense.

I dunno. It's just really, really, really good hip-hop, dressed up in a musicology PhD thesis. Don't go into it expecting hit singles (though 'Club Down' and 'La Mala Ordina' could do the trick if they got the airplay), but do have a listen; it's on Spotify.

To damn it with the faintest of praise, it's my favourite rap album since ICP's The Great Milenko!

Sounds up my alley. I love cLOUDDEAD and also like Dälek (to a lesser extent).

It's a LOT more aggressive than cLOUDDEAD, but definitely cut from the same 'found sound and strange timings' cloth.

Their last album Splendor and Misery is worth a shot—it's a hip hop concept record about a spaceship's controlling AI who falls in love with the last human alive, with hilarious* consequences!

*spoilers: not hilarious

Eminem & Joyner Lucas have done this track called “What if I was gay” and it’s kinda great.

I heard this live version first and I think it's waaaaay better than the somewhat tame sounding studio version.

Taylor Swift’s performance at the American music awards is in doubt, as is the future of a new Netflix documentary about her, the singer has claimed, thanks to an ongoing feud with “tyrannical” music managers Scooter Braun and Scott Borchetta.

“Don’t know what else to do,” Swift wrote in a tweet, which contained screenshots of a long statement in which she alleged that Borchetta and Braun, who own the rights to her early albums, were preventing her from performing her own work at the upcoming AMAs, at which she is set to receive the artist of the decade award.
