Diploid is a trio from Melbourne that makes really intense and heavy stuff. the tracks are ridiculously short, extremely heavy, riffs that make you shit yourself and screams deep from the bush. Ranging from hardcore punk to grindcore this new album is an absolute blast to listen to. tune in for ‘I am Yours. And I am Here Again.
Through the Australian band Lost Talk I came to know the band Macros with members of LOST TALK, Overtime, Mile End, Mongrel Country. And then I forgot about them again.
So it feels like a kinda new discovery all over again, which is nice. I knew I was impressed with their debut EP in 2019 and was pleasantly surprised that this new EP is really cool. It is a bit a mix of hardcore, noiserock and stuff like that, it is called Brain Tattoo and it perfectly fits my abysmal mood this moring.
Feeling shitty today? tune in to Macros, it will not help you mood at all but it is awesome nonetheless.
Favourite track: Iron Fucker

Hailing from Sydney come psychedelic-pop outfit, The Lazy Eyes who have shared ‘Tangerine’ a summer, sun-kissed scorcher. A kaleidoscopic, otherworldly celestial stunner akin to Tame Impala’s earliest material meets Syd Barrett-era Pink Floyd, ‘Tangerine’ from the cosmic quartet is nearly 3 minutes of euphoric, sweltering psychedelia.
The follow up to their debut Beatles meets Beach Boys esque ‘Cheesy Long Song’ can be streamed via Spotify, and you can also check out the video to the sweet, psych-glistened single below. Get involved and jump on the marvelous magic carpet ride that is The Lazy Eyes…
“Raving Drooling” is an album made of riffs, riffs that we need, that you need, riffs that i am pretty sure could save us against the virus, they are so heavy and dense they could level a building with the first chord of the first track. This really cool album is made by the Australian duo DEAD who also manage the label Weemptyrooms. On this album are 7 tracks that been put really good together, they immediatly get stuck in your head, vocals fit perfectly in the music. The tracks are varied so this is a real good listen from start to finish. Tune in and listen to DEAD. Buy it on their bandcamp or on Wantage.
