Coliseum – “We Are The Water” Video

Coliseum will release their new album, Anxiety's Kiss, in May, the follow-up 2013's Sister Faith. It's the Louisville-based trio's third straight album with producer J. Robbins (Jawbox, Burning Airlines). Today Coliseum shared a sparse but dramatic performance video for the album's lead single "We Are The Water." Watch the Max Moore-directed clip and check… More »

Cold Cave – “Black Magic Punks” (Coliseum Cover)

The last time we heard a new track from Cold Cave was over a year ago, when they released their moody single "Don't Blow Up The Moon," but now the band has resurfaced to share a cover of Coliseum's "Black Magic Punks." The original song was on Coliseum's brooding 2013 release Sister Faith,… More »

Coliseum – “White Magic Punks (Justin K. Broadrick Sorcerer Remix)” (Stereogum Premiere)

Last year, Louisville post-hardcore trio Coliseum gave the world a shot of adrenaline in the form of their best LP yet, the ferocious Sister Faith. And now, in December, they're putting out a remix 12" of Sister Faith lead single "Black Magic Punks," featuring reinterpretations by the likes of Cold Cave, Atsuo of… More »

Coliseum – “Late Night Trains” Live (Stereogum Premiere)

Coliseum's great 2013 LP, Sister Faith, was the best and most refined work of the Louisville band's decade-long career, a simmering, rattling LP of tense, textured melodic post-hardcore in the Jawbox tradition (indeed it was produced by that band's J. Robbins, the first to be recorded at his Baltimore studio). The shows that followed… More »

Coliseum – “Doing Time” Video

A couple of months ago, we gave Album Of The Week to Sister Faith, the latest platter of fuzzed-up and riff-hungry post-hardcore from the Louisville trio Coliseum. The band's already made a few videos for tracks from the album, and now there's another one, for the hard-charging "Doing Time." The clip, from director… More »

Watch Coliseum Cover Eddie Money

Stuff like this is the reason the A.V. Club's "A.V. Undercover" video series exists: Louisville post-hardcore warriors Coliseum, who landed a recent Album Of The Week with their ferocious Sister Faith, covering "Shakin'," a deeply silly piece of '80s cheeseball-rock fluff by Eddie Money. You will not be shocked to learn that the… More »

Album Of The Week: Coliseum Sister Faith

This used to be what indie rock sounded like. During the 1990s, Elephant 6 and Belle And Sebastian were outliers, and the genre (which really was more genre and less loose lifestyle appellation) hadn't erased all traces of the get-in-the-van '80s hardcore that helped birth it. As late as a decade ago, when the Louisville… More »

Stereogum Monthly Mix: April 2013

After experimenting with three formats for the Monthly Mix -- MP3 zip, Spotify playlist, Soundcloud set, etc. -- in March we finally came upon a solution that pleased everyone: all of them. And so, for you, here is the month's music, whittled down to its very best, via each of the aforementioned mediums, limited… More »

Stream Coliseum Sister Faith

For years, the Louisville trio Coliseum have walked the line between fuzz-blasted riff-metal and clangorous post-hardcore, and their new album Sister Faith, recorded with brutal clarity by the former Jawbox frontman J. Robbins, may be their strongest yet. Sister Faith has hooks and speed and punishing math-rock songcraft working for it, and it's a complete… More »

Coliseum – “Bad Will” Video

In a few weeks, the Louisville power trio Coliseum will release Sister Faith, their latest album of clangorous, hard-charging, metallic punk rock. We've already posted their album tracks "Black Magic Punks," "Doing Time," and "Fuzzbang." And now we've got the video for their anthemic "Bad Will," for which director Max Moore,… More »

Coliseum – “Fuzzbang”

The three tracks we've heard from Coliseum's forthcoming Sister Faith -- "Black Magic Punks," "Doing Time," and now "Fuzzbang" -- suggest the band's new LP has a good chance of being their very best. "Fuzzbang" feels a bit more subdued than the two songs that preceded it; it's at a lower boil tha… More »

Coliseum – “Doing Time” (Stereogum Premiere)

The excellent Louisville trio Coliseum were responsible for one of 2010's most exciting releases, House With A Curse -- a raging inferno of massive hardcore anthems with enough energy to power a small revolution, but with a mineshaft depth (and slew of guests) that marked the album very much as a document of its birthplace.

Coliseum – “Black Magic Punks”

The Louisville stomp-rock power trio Coliseum play a sort of metal/punk hybrid that also draws on the ragged precision of fellow Louisville band Slint; they're a band worth paying attention to. In a few months, they'll release their new album Sister Faith, produced by the former Jawbox/Burning Airlines frontman J. Robbins. Robbins also guests, a… More »

Coliseum Cover The Misfits

When I posted Coliseum's "Blind In One Eye," vocalist/guitarist Ryan Patterson went in depth about his Louisville crew's third album House With A Curse. Their new-look throat-shredding blues punk reminds me of Laughing Hyenas, but with the confrontational energy of Black Flag or the early D.C. hardcore scene. I didn't consider the Misfits, but… More »

Coliseum – “Blind In One Eye” (Stereogum Premiere)

Those of you familiar with heavy Louisville punk trio Coliseum's previous two albums Coliseum (Level-Plane) and No Salvation (Relapse) will notice a change of pace on House With A Curse. Their newest -- self-produced, mixed by J. Robbins, named after a note written in the 1925 film version of Phantom Of The Opera -- introduce… More »
