Nailbiter is a solo project of Josh Korody from Beliefs, a band I've already gone on about many, many times on here. Whereas Beliefs music is indebted to shoegaze power of the likes of Ride and My Bloody Valentine, Nailbiter draws its influence from the great industrial sounds of the 80's and 90's, with Formats bringing to mind elements of Throbbing Gristle, Coil and Nine Inch Nails when they focus on crunching instrumentals. It's a brilliant album from beginning to end and it's currently the soundtrack to early spring in Glasgow.

A track like Splatter is a perfect example of how good this album is. Driving rhythms and beats combine with walls of electronic noise in an aggressive but curiously almost calming way - the same can be said of Concrete City too, which is another standout. It's an album that deserves attention basiscally, and if you like your electronic music experimental, edgy and, ultimately, loud, this is for you.

Formats by Nailbiter is available on Hand Drawn Dracula and through Nailbiter's Bandcamp page
