Boom! Just like that Inter Arma come crashing back into our lives – and straight into our weekly playlist. I’ve probably squeezed a mention of it somewhere else (likely more than once) but their 2014 Green Room show at Roadburn was a masterclass in all that Inter Arma represent. They’ve returned to the festival since then – and no doubt will be back again at some point –  but that show stands out as a writhing mass of sweaty bodies being pummelled and forever changed by the might of this Richmond-based ensemble (rounded out by theremin accompaniment and an enormous tree branch, as you do). Citadel is flawless – get your ears wrapped around it immediately.

We have tracks from other Roadburn alumni Motorpsycho and Volcano. Elsewhere on the playlist we have Roadburn 2019 performers Laster and Louise Lemón. Louise’s track actually came out last year but it bares repeating, plus she just released the video to the track this week which has fanned the flames of our excitement about her upcoming Roadburn set.

As ever, it’s a pleasure to put together a little collection of tracks for you to check out – if you like what you hear, don’t forget to subscribe, and whilst you’re there, check out our other Spotify playlists.
