Weekly Threats: Recommended New Releases For 04/13/18

WRONG - Feel Great
WRONG features members of TORCHE and ex-members of Capsule and Kylesa, and you would think that combination would mean that they were some sort of sludge/stoner rock band. They're actually a noise rock band, and a great one at that, and they've just released their second album "Feel Great" on Relapse Records. You still have heavy riffs but the result is more Unsane than Floor, and fans of the Amphetamine Reptile days will find a lot to like here.

Knxwledge - Gladwemet
Knxwledge's discography is incredibly dense, even for someone who's been active since 2009. Aside from his plethora of beat tapes and EP releases, Knxwledge has produced tracks for Blu, Joey Bada$$, Homeboy Sandman, Action Bronson, Omarion, Ghostface Killah and Kendrick Lamar. He's even part of a duo called NxWorries with rapper/producer/singer Anderson Paak. Gladwemet is his latest EP which is out on Stones Throw Records and is also a part of the Adult Swim Singles program.

Blu & Nottz - Gods In Spirit, Titans In The Flesh
West Coast MC Blu and Virginia producer Nottz (Busta Rhymes, Snoop Dogg, Kanye West, Game, Notorious B.I.G., Pusha T etc.) has reissued their two EPs 2013's Gods In Spirit and 2016's Titans In The Flesh in one package. The release features guest appearances from Homeboy Sandman, Aloe Blacc, Skyzoo and producer/longtime partner of Blu; Exile.

A Place to Bury Strangers - Pinned
A Place to Bury Strangers has many influences; goth, post-punk, industrial, shoegaze, but the Brooklyn-based noise rock trio's sound has always been dictated by frontman singer/songwriter/guitarist Oliver Ackerman. The band has seen many lineup changes surrounding Ackerman, and their fifth full-length is the first to feature drummer Lia Braswell, formerly of Le Butcherette.
