PODCAST #56 Robbie Hansen (Eyelet/мища)

I remember perusing the CHUG LIFE blog back in 2010 and being extremely impressed by the depth and downloads located on said screamo blog. Eventually I found out that one of the fellas who ran it also played in мища. Soon after I started this blog and interviewed Robbie Hansen for this blog (linked here). Eventually the band broke up and Robbie started playing drums in Alter. After a local screamo band lost their drummer, Robbie said he could fill for Eyelet (reviewed before he joined the band here). After he joined the band full-time I was able to put on a show for them in Hamilton, Ontario (linked here) and even interviewed the band including Tony, which I've embedded below. Theeeeen Zegema Beach released their 'Howling in the Hall' cassette EP that was given away with ZBR orders. Next up? Well, the new goddamn Eyelet 12" LP releases very soon...like, this year. Check that podcast for info! Robbie also does two of his own podcasts which are linked below Eyelet. Bands played in this podcast: Confederate Railroad, Age Of Electric, Kidcrash, Off Minor, DEVIII and Ovlov. Listen to podcast #56 which is available to stream and/or download for free via this link. And definitely check Zegema Beach, Icorrupt and The Ghost Is Clear tomorrow!!!

REVENATE +
MELABUH KELABU +
MIS SUEÑOS SON DE TU ADIÓS +
MIRIN BIDE

4/8 songs
exclusive premiere


This incredible new 4-way split releases on December 28th, 2020 via:
Jean Scene Creamers (USA, tape)
Larry Records (USA, tape)
Paska Records (Indonesia, CD-r)
Luz Sobre Tinieblas (Argentina, tape)

(2020) REVENATE "A Diversity" (from '4-Way' split)

If you traveled back in time 20 years you could play this song for someone and they'd be like, yeaaaah baby this is just like the stuff coming out that I dig. Total throwback and I dig it. Somewhere between Book Of Dead Names and Utarid. From Indonesia.


(2020) MELABUH KELABU "Fragment" (from '4-Way' split)

Another Indonesian band is up next, with MELABUH KELABU being around for some time. These two songs might just be my favourite by them thus far, as the intensity, drive and spots of serene remind me of Me And Goliath. Most excellent.


(2020) MIS SUEÑOS SON DE TU ADIÓS "the pit I" (from '4-Way' split)

If you don't know Enzo yet you're under a rock cuz they have been pumping out posts, music and art like nobody's business for the past year (at least). Their two songs here are both the most emo-violence and experimental of the four, making them a real treat amongst other...ummm...well, treats. Sounds kinda like Nayru and Under A Sky So Blue. Yep. From Argentina.


(2020) MIRIN BIDE "frágil" (from '4-Way' split)

Closing this stellar 4-way is MIRIN BIDE from Chile and holy shit do they lay waste to their two jams in no time at all. If you're looking for the heaviest, hardest-hitting songs on the comp then look no further than these two absolute beasts. I get a June Paik vibe and I fucking love it.
