The Oakland sludge band Noothgrush–yes, named for Dr. Seuss’s “little prismatic stoner imp who takes over your toothbrush”–recently released an LP of covers titled Uncovered Failures. On that LP you’ll find covers of Pink Floyd, Celtic Frost, a John Willams/Styx mash up, and Duran Duran (who are also being honored with a tribute LP). Pretty safe bet this locks up the coveted grind cover album of the year award–hell, the thing opens with a Laura Branigan cover. So that rules. (Order yours from Choking Hazard.)

Noothgrush will be playing a few dates this summer, including two in NYC. First they play July 31 at Union Pool with Trenchgrinder and Uniform and then again on August 2 at the Acheron with Ruine, Grudges and Show of Bedlam. Tickets for the show at the Acheron and tickets for the show at Union Pool are on sale now.

That Acheron show will be Ruine’s first show ever–the NYC band features members of NYC black metal band Mutilation Rites (who just released a song and are touring) and grind band Magrudergrind, and delivers a hulking, torturous take on doom. Listen to a track below.

All Noothgrush dates are listed, along with that Ruine stream, below…
