Oh man!  Time flies.  Been checked out for awhile! Stoked to bring the reincarnated Monterey indie rock band The Silhouette Era into the Oscillator fold!  There is a new record with a planned vinyl release coming soon.


Well, there was a Concave live show on August 25th and James has been working on new material and hopes to record before the end of the year.  Check out this fantastic review on Hellride: Hellride.com review of History Is The Future and local rag Monterey County Weekly’s feature article: One-Man Jam

Record Reviews:

Boar Hunter / Razorhoof – split LP


I had only heard about RAZORHOOF before cracking this open and was impressed by their heavy stoner riffs that sounded like they could break into a melodic punk rock anthem with only a nudge. They actually kinda do just that with the last song on their side “Melharsher”. Vocals remind me a lot of Buzzo from the MELVINS but the lyrics are quite a bit more of a downer.

The BOAR HUNTER side is epic as well. The band features members of UZI SUICIDE, SAROS and APEFACE playing catchy but crusty hardcore. The guitars are melodic as hell but there is an ugly undercurrent to the band’s sound that the singer exploits with his raw-throated crust vocals, giving it a WRATHCOBRA sound. Killer split.
