Fit For An Autopsy – Oh What the Future Holds

Oh What the Future Holds finds Fit For An Autopsy with a little more patience, finally hitting their veteran stride in their sixth studio album. Tracks are given ample space to come alive in the pensive, bestial way only Fit can paradoxically achieve, instead of constantly clobbering you with The Big Riffs. It’s a commanding, inspired outing, far removed from the languor of their prior work. So what does the future hold for their direction after Beasts, exactly? 

SOM – The Shape Of Everything

Shoegaze act SOM arrived in 2018 and melted hearts with their debut album The Fall, then blew us away from the stage at POST. Festival the following year. The act (featuring members of Junius, Constants, and Caspian) has been described as "doom pop," which isn't inaccurate; the baseline SOM modus operandi consists of colossal low-end, lush guitar layers, and airy vocal hooks delivered through a wash of delay and reverb, without pretense or complication.
