Jealousy Mountain Duo ~~~ Don Vito ~~~ Occupants

Two-man German band Jealousy Mountain Duo's self-titled longplayer was released by experimental German label Blunoise, a perfect portmanteau of Jealousy Mountain Duo's disparate '60s jazz and noisy, math-rock influences. Jealousy Mountain Duo takes a deconstructivist approach to its experimental blend of post-modern jazz and mathy indie rock, its guitars looping looping and conflicting melodies, its drums working in and out of rhythms, eschewing any semblance of straightforward timekeeping for an abstract counterbalance to the swirl of notes and tones. The result is tightly controlled chaos, a sonic maelstrom where form doesn't necessarily follow function. This, truly, is radical stuff. In both senses of the word.
- P. Wall

Don Vito: There is no other band that can make such loud noise with such creativity and step away from using rock instruments "traditionally". The sudden changes of rhythm, playful drum rolls and passionate shrieks leave you thrilled and out of breath. They're a teaser to the ears, offering complexity, speed and metal-based rollercoasters in 50-secondsong brilliance.

Occupants is a newborn improv/noise/jazz trio, consisting of Gabe Madden (guitar/trumpet), Michael Crawford (drums), and Tom Law (live manipulations, synth).
