You had better have some big cojones to name your band A Fucking Elephant. The technical/progressive two-piece (bass/drums) are prepping to release their classily-titled Seven Inches of A Fucking Elephant, a two song effort that demonstrates the band's prowess as an instrumental powerhouse. At times AFE sound like they've studied the jaw-dropping skills of their recording engineer Colin Marston (the 7" was laid to tape at his A Thousand Caves studio) while others give glimpses of latter Bastard Noise. Stream that release in full below for the first time, get your copy via Nefarious Industries, and see themon the road at the dates below -- including at Public Assembly on Jan 20 with Hannibal Montana, Noxious Foxes and Multitudes. Advance tickets are on sale.
Speaking of Colin Marston, the multi-instrumentalist will be at Saint Vitus on Saturday (1/5) as part of Dysrhythmia's appearance with Wreck & Reference, Soren and Planning for Burial. Tickets are still available.

Dysrhythmia @ Public Assembly
Dysrhythmia finished their round of dates in celebration of Test of Submission in Brooklyn at Public Assembly on Saturday (11/17). They were joined by a rare appearance from Loincloth (who we profiled here) and NYC's STATS and Rivers of Nihil. Though the latter band leans more toward the death metal end of things, the other three made it clear to see that the night was dedicated to math-y technical metal in different variations. Pictures from the show are in this post.
Dysrhythmia will join Wreck & Reference (profiled here and here), Soren (of Rosenkopf, who played his debut show at WIERD) and Planning for Burial on January 5th at Saint Vitus. The show is a rare appearance for Wreck & Reference, who are are visiting from their native Bay Area. Tickets are on sale.
More pictures from Public Assembly, though unfortunately none of Rivers of Nihil (who we missed), below...
Slug Guts, not Sisters of Mercy, @ Home Sweet Home, 10/17/2012
Post-punk maniacs Slug Guts joined headliner Cult of Youth with Soren (of Rosenkopf) for an appearance at the hazy, fog-dense basement of Home Sweet Home for the WIERD party last night (10/17), the first of three area appearances. Though Cult of Youth and Soren both ripped excellent sets, Slug Guts were mesmerizing in the tiny space, packing it to the gills.
If you missed the Australian band, make sure and catch them at either The Acheron on Friday (10/19) with Pop 1280 and Vaz or at the Life or Death showcase at 92Y Tribeca on Saturday (10/20).
More pictures from last night's WIERD are below.
Australia's Slug Guts are currently touring the US on the strength of their recent Sacred Bones release, Playin' In Time with the Deadbeat, a slab of noisy post-punk misanthropy a la The Birthday Party and early Christian Death. The band will hit NYC next week during the CMJ festival, including October 20 at the Life or Death PR party at 92YTribeca, October 19 at Acheron with Pop 1280 & Vaz, and also WIERD on Otctober 17 at Home Sweet Home with Rosenkopf and Cult of Youth.
For those who can't make it out to the shows, make sure and catch the band on WNYU on Oct 18th (89.1FM, or streaming) at 4PM as part of the New Afternoon Show.
All tour dates and audio/video from Slug Guts recent LP are below.
Iceage finished a round of NYC shows with a performance at Le Poisson Rouge last night (7/22), appealing to their more gothic tendencies with appearances from Dirty Beaches, Martial Canterel and Rosenkopf.

Pictures from the awesome Le Poisson Rouge show are below.
