I noticed I really like it when bands experiment with sound, as a big noiserockfan I ofcourse go completely wild when these bands experiment with sound, especially with electronics. The difference between noiserock and industrial is small, I know, but I wil try to leave Industrial mostly out of it. So I will share some of my favourite releases, some with an obvious electronic influence and with others it is a bit more nuanced. Be sure to let me know wich ones deserve a place on here, I really want as much as possible on this list.
The leeds noiserockers released their album “Please” last year and ended pretty high on my end of the year list. Their sound is full of electronics wich makes their music even more nutty.
On the latest one of Girl Band the electronics are maybe a bit more nuanced but the techno piece in the middle of “Shoulderblades” track is absolutely brilliant and give me goosebumbs to this day.
Maybe not 100% noiserock but shuttlecock made a really cool album with “Simulation Assimilation” in 2006.
This is a newer band but it is quite clear the band intents to make a marriage of noise rock and electronics.
This list would be nothing without the 90s band Brainiac.
On Kim Gordon’s first solo album “No Home Record” she experimented with a lot of different genres, and she succeeded wonderfully, This is a great record with a lot of different influences.
Shit and Shine
This is quite a band, Shit and Shine has released a bit of everything, I don’t know how many releases they had but it must be a crapload. The band has made pure electronic and acid albums but I wanted to share their latest called “Doing Drugs, Selling Drugs”. There is a lot of sampling and electronic in this album but most of all it is extremely heavy.
This is maybe not exactly fitting but I always do love me some Raketkanon, and since they called it quits they deserve a place on here. Their latest album is very much synth, so here it is.
Noise Rock pioneers, Eric Paul (Arab On Radar, Chinese Stars, Doomsday Student), Paul Vieira (Chinese Stars, Doomsday Student), and Nathan Joyner (Some Girls, All Leather, Hot Nerds) make really awesome industrial/electronic noiserock.
The debut of Duchess Says was released in 2006 and deserves a place in here too. Keytars, Keyboards and whatever make this stuff pretty frikkin cool.
14 tracks about robot domination and human extinction? Released on Amphetamine Reptile Records in 1996? Yes, please.
This is some nutty music. Its sounds like the 80’s Thank. This is from their 1985 album “Wash & Slog”.
I don’t have a lot of info on this band but this EP, Jesus, this EP completely blow me to bits.
