In Gut's House

1987

Alternative/Indie Rock

Arguably Ut's best, this double-EP is easily their most coherent record, tighter and more in control. The songs here sound as though more attention was paid to their construction and writing, making this is a more polished record in many ways. But not every edge is sanded smooth; there's plenty of bark and bite here.

Alternative/Indie Rock

In the short time between forming in 1998 and the release of their first proper album four years later, Black Dice had transformed from a violent hardcore band into an experimental noise act and then into something gentler and more psychedelic. This trippy double album channeled synth exploration, drum circles, circuit bending electronics and cathartic noise energy, and set the pace for entire sects of indie rock for years to come.
