Let Us Now Praise Noise: Set Your Clocks Forward Edition

This week: The Buttertones, YOB, Ho99o9, and 3teeth.

L.A.’s The Buttertones bring No Wave back on their brilliant new single, “Baby C4,” sounding a bit like James White and the Contortions or a little bit like Flesh Eaters. It drops ahead of their Midnight In A Moonless Dream LP. The band will also be touring Europe and the US this year (dates below). The new album hits the street May 4 from Innovative Leisure.

LA’s horror hiphop/punk unit Ho99o9 and industrial band 3teeth are teaming up for a tour. So far, the bands have released two collaborative singles, “Lights Out” and “Time’s Up.” Both are pretty stellar tracks, but I especially appreciate “Time’s Up” as it sounds like Psalm 69-era Ministry. On their own, both bands are pretty great. I wasn’t previously familiar with either one, but industrial fans will love 3teeth and I recently went down a YouTube rabbit hole watching Ho99o9 videos. Catch these shows when they come to your town!
