Nailbiter – Smeared

Nailbiter–the solo side-project of Josh Korody of Beliefs and Candle Recording–makes sludgy experimental electro with shades of industrial and a pinch of gothiness. Naturally, with qualifiers like that, this is the type of music that is exactly in our wheelhouse. “Smeared” is a short song with a sense of impending doom, and though the sounds are cacophonous, it is still melodious and beat-driven.

The song is the first single from Waveshaper, his third album under this name and first to be mastered with David Psutka (Egyptrixx) and Jeremy Greenspan. The album is out tomorrow (March 3rd) on Hand Drawn Dracula, with a release party that same day in Toronto at The Smiling Buddha.

MP3: Nailbiter – Fall Lows


Toronto’s Beliefs are a great band, one that, however, is just BARELY outside of our mandate to cover completely. Thankfully we have Nailbiter — the side-project of founding Beliefer Josh Korody — to awe and adore. The dreamy drone of “Fall Lows” is exactly the kind of thing we want to hear from a new project with its subtle electronic loop manipulation, motorik beats and weirded out guitars.

“Fall Lows” is an excellent single from the forth-coming FORMATS album, out today on Hand Drawn Dracula. To celebrate, Nailbiter will be playing a show at Bambi’s in Toronto tonight with Mystic Triangle, Marriage, and Bit Reduction.
