Hobo Cubes – Timeless/Mindless
Fresh off a massively successful month-long tour of North America, Hobo Cubes/Hobo Cult shaman Francesco de Gallo has decided to ignore man’s necessity to rest and to instead continue his mean streak with Timeless/Mindless, a brand new CD on Debacle Records. Decked out in characteristically spacey collages by the man, Timeless/Mindless definitely belongs in the “totally warped” section of Hobo Cubes’ discography. There are moments of pure beauty and meditative radiance in the mix, but the majority of the album is just a total mind melter. It goes without saying that it is also one of the finest Hobo Cubes albums yet, but it seems like he’s just gets stronger with each release. A massive album that, obviously, comes highly recommended.

Sundrips – Just A Glimpse
If Sundrips’ recent split with Arcseconds whet your appetite for a full-length release, your prayers have been answered this week. Courtesy of Debacle Records, Just A Glimpse is a brand new CD release from Sundrips, featuring seven concise, synth-and-guitar-based tracks. Each track is totally awesome in its own right, as we would expect from the Dripsters, and Just A Glimpse comes together as a complete and beautiful work of art, taken best when swallowed whole. It might even be, dare I say, their finest work yet. Their countless tape releases have all been absolutely essential, but, on Just A Glimpse, Sundrips have created a record that just demands your attention and gets better with each listen. Gorgeous music! A must-buy.
