Birds Of Paradise - Sex Noises

Sex Noises are a four-piece from Australia's capital who released their 7" 'Birds of Paradise' this new years day on Cinnamon Records. A nice dose of hardcore influenced punk makes me nostalgic about Bikini Kill and early Pixies and wanting to see them live asap. Sadly, at the moment all their shows take place on the opposite side of the planet. The vocals are energetic, (mostly) female and aggressive at times, however, 'Visions of Darkness' adds some humming and more delicate singing to the mix. Even though the choice is hard, I might risk saying the last track, 'Grim Reefer' is my favourite of Sex Noises' songs so far, purely because of it's Sonic Youth vibes. 'Birds of Paradise' is free to stream on Cinnamon Records bandcamp, where you can also buy the digital and vinyl version, with cover artwork by the singer/guitarist, Anja Loughhead. If discovering this band was as exciting for you as it was for me, you should also listen to and name your price for their first album 'Clovers' and check out other things released on Cinnamon Records.

(Never Stop) Hating You - The Manhattan Love Suicides

Great News! The Manhattan Love Suicides are back!
(Never Stop) Hating You is the first song released by them for almost 5 years. With the simple noisy drums, fuzzy guitars and catchy female vocals you can probably place them somewhere between The Jesus and Mary Chain and Black Tambourine, if you haven't heard of The Manhattan Love Suicides before, then it will be hard not to take a liking to them. Starting out in 2006 and temporarily finishing in 2009 this four piece from Leeds will be one to look out for in the near future. They only have one UK date so far (The Oddbox Weekender 5th Birthday) however by the looks of things on their facebook page they are planning for an active year back and on top of playing shows again, they are releasing a new album (which we think will be released on on Squirrel Records) so keep an eye out.

Sinking Feeling - Gorgeous Bully

'Sinking Feeling' is the first track off Gorgeous Bully's new EP 'Nobody Hates You As Much As You Hate Yourself' which will be released on Art is Hard on 17th of February. The four-piece, currently based in Manchester, opens their forthcoming release with a catchy, energetic lo-fi garage rock song. However, 'Across the EP's further four tracks, expect a celebration of misery, loneliness and self-loathing, perfectly molded into three minute grungey pop songs that celebrate the freedom of not doing what is expected of you' says Art is Hard. For tape enthusiasts, the EP is going to be released by the end of this week on a cassette "in a hand-stamped box that contains a lyric sheet, badges, a bottle opener/lighter, a download code for an MP3 version as well as a further secret EP". You can already order it from here.

Listen to Tamaryn's Best of 2013 Playlist (via V MAGAZINE) featuring some great tracks from Ariel Pink, Connan Mockasin, Dum Dum Girls and more (check out the videos as well, some are really cool). It suits my end of the year mood a lot, so I'll surely put it on tonight.

I hope you found 2013 a year to remember, musically, and in any other way you please. Unfortunately, Generate Nothing was in a bit of stagnation. 2014 sounds scary and futuristic but there are some really good things to come very soon, so keep an eye on our feed!

string - Human Hands

Human Hands are a Straford-Upon-Avon via Iceland based band (see facebook page description), however they tend to say they are from Birmingham to make things easier. They are an emo/punk band that really know how to get that feel of good old-school emo like that of Cap'n Jazz or maybe more recently on the midwest scene, Merchant Ships. At the start of the month they shared a song from their new upcoming LP being released on strictly no capital letters, Time as a Colour and Cross Your Heart and Hope to D.I.Y. Their latest song still has that fantastic cap'n jazz feel to it yet it seems much more melodic than their earlier stuff, you can almost relate it to that of the lulling guitars used in American Football. We are highly anticipating the rest of the LP which should be released at the end of this month so keep an eye on their bandcamp page where you can check out and download all their previous releases for free. Bassist and Singer (Chaz) also runs his own record label which is definitely worth a visit, which you can do here.
