With Queens of the Stone Age in the middle of a UK arena tour, we’ve decided to highlight
five of the bands best tracks for this edition of "Fives".
We've got the new EP from Yorkshire riff merchants NOSE right here! Take a listen to 'Sick
Continuing our Reuben theme from last week’s Fives and in celebration of frontman Jamie Lenman’s new double solo album, we take a look at two of the albums for "Versus". Its
‘Racecar Is Racecar Backwards' against 'In Nothing We Trust'.
Calgary's debut EP 'Fight Fire With Fire' is a bright, warming collection of indie pop songs.
With comparisons to Hellogoodbye and John Mayer, the four tracks showcase a band with pop sensibilities and plenty of potential to breakthrough. We caught up with the band to find out more.
The harsh and abrasive chaos from the likes of The Dillinger Escape Plan, Converge and The Chariot are just ‘harsh and abrasive chaos’ to some ears. The latter usage of that phrase was those who don’t get it and that ‘it sounds like a lot of noise’, whereas the former usage was for those who see the phrase as a compliment; music is music, no matter how it comes across.
The technical ability, aggression and intensity is all thrown into a grinder and then carefully placed back together in a jigsaw like fashion; 'Mire' is the album that the previous metaphor belongs to and Stallone seem to know what they’re doing. My first listen didn’t quite get it, but sitting down and actually concentrating it all makes much more sense. It’s this need for a deeper level of concentration that still makes me think to this day that technical music is only appreciated by the more intelligent and creative minds (no offence to everyone else in this pretty little world). I think it’s because a creative mind is able to process the music for what it is, and not just “noise”, as well as appreciate the technicalities at play.

Having spent the summer playing numerous festivals, Gnarwolves have released their new video for 'Limerence' which documents the bands time on the road.
The track appears on the bands 'Funemployed' and is available now on Big Scary Monsters, Tangled Talk and Day By Day.
The 'Limerence' video can be viewed after the jump below.
Listener has evolved from a macbook toting duo into a full band and have produced their third full-length, ‘Time Is A Machine’, a deliberate, cohesive effort that is devoid of filler and is completely self confident.
If you’ve never listened to Listener, the first thing you’ll note is the frantic, sometimes erratic, spoken-word style vocals from Dan Smith, and this style is either something you’ll really love or really not love. Regardless, there’s no way you could deny the absolute passion behind every single word of every single lyric. The lyrics are powerful, vibrant, and full of imagery that make it easy to connect to the songs.
Gnarwolves have revealed details of their new EP 'Funemployed.' The four track EP will be released on 17th June through Big Scary Monsters, Tangled Talk (digital release) and Day By Day Records (vinyl release.)

Eastbourne’s Let’s Talk Daggers are ready to open their doors even further to a flood of music fans. Armed with a new mini-album ‘Fantastic Contraption,’released next week via Tangled Talk Records, this trio shows no limits to their brand of noisy chaotic punk.
We caught up with drummer Steven Berry and bassist/second vocalist Jim Francis to talk about their new release, work on their upcoming debut album, and their thoughts on the British music scene.
Hello, who am I speaking with and can you please tell us your roles in the band?
Let’s Talk Daggers: Hello! Steven (Drums) and Jamie (Bass/2nd Vocal) here.
For those who are unfamiliar, can you give some background info on the band from the very start?
LTD: We became friends at school and played in other bands without really taking it too seriously. We used to be a 5-piece playing different music and eventually heading toward the direction we’re at now. Other members lost interest and we tragically lost our front-man David in 2008. It was a very difficult time for us but after a long period of confusion and being undecided about the future, we felt that we should carry on doing what we love but that we’d never replace David. We’ve been a 3-piece ever since.
Your newest mini album ‘Fantastic Contraption’ is about to be unfurled on the 25th March. How have the reactions been to this record so far?
LTD: The album has been very well received so far. We’ve had some glowing early reviews, air play, and exclusive features with Rock Sound and Front Magazine. I’m not sure people get what we’re all about straight away.
Did you hear about Gnarwolves at Hevy Fest? They opened up the Main Stage on the Friday and were playing to about 8 people. Why so? Well, whoever it was at the arena entrance said that ‘no bands were playing’ and that nobody could enter, even though everyone could CLEARLY hear Gnarwolves. Cue super punk moment of everyone rushing the gates and storming in to watch one of the fastest rising bands the UK has to offer. Believe the hype.
Despite the alcohol we managed to chat to Gnarwolves about their previous musical endeavours, their involvement with Tangled Talk and watching movies with either ‘a chick or dudes’…
'CRU' by Gnarwolves is out now on Tangled Talk Records.

Vales provided one of the highlights in the Red Bull tent at last month’s Hevy Festival but before they did so we sat down (literally) with Ollie and Chlo about the reception to their debut EP, their involvement with Tangled Talk and which Glassjaw album is the best.
'Clarity' by Vales is out now on Tangled Talk.
Questions by Rosie Kerr (@Rosiekerr)
Gruff, fast and pop. Equally fitting of an unlikely brand of cereal, these qualitatives also conveniently fit Brighton punk outfit Gnarwolves. EP 'CRU' is a showcase of the warm-hearted aggression they wear on their sleeve through half a dozen fast-paced and rowdy tracks of pop-punk goodness. The band find their spot somewhere between the songwriting of early Against Me! combined with a style along the lines of Basement, a cocktail that surely has a bunch of people foaming at the mouth.
Opener ‘History Is Bunk’ is a short, sweet and triumphant blast as it sprints out of the starting blocks all crashing cymbals and raucous guitars before cutting with an effortless suddenness into a rousing chorus of gang vocals as they iterate again and again that ‘it’s not the same thing’. All credit should be due to the superb songwriting on display here as ‘We Want The Whip’ is another little gem that sees the band weave shouty verses with charming choruses ready to be shouted back at the band.
