#165 | Track Reviews | CATSICK, Cyttorak, Pyrrhon, Don’t Grow Old, Carpenter Brut, and Dearth


Welcome back to the second episode of our fledgling track reviews podcast series where Derek, Connor, and myself prattle on about some relatively fresh cuts from artists known and not so well known. Though the series title implies track discussions only, we do leave the gate open for EPs and splits so long as they are relatively brief. In this iteration, we expand our palates to encompass synthwave from Carpenter Brut, bedraggled punk from New Zealand Brian-bashers CATSICK, a suffocating merge of black and death metal from Oakland gloom revelers Dearth, the meteor striking sludge of the intergalactic brute Cyttorak, plus a litany of other timbres.

Ultimately, we hope this episode brings you at least one new intriguing discovery. Below you will find the list of tracks and EPs we discuss in order of appearance. If there is a particular track you’d like to hear covered in this format, please feel free to reach out to us via email. We already have our list of tracks selected for our third iteration, but we are always seeking new tunes; send us the weirdest and most outlandish music you enjoy! Thank you so much for listening.
