Peter Hook & The Light: Unknown Pleasures Tour 2012: Live In Leeds (Westworld)

The Melvins: Across The USA in 51 Days: The Movie (Ipecac Recordings)

This short film captures The Melvins during their 2012 “51 shows in 51 days tour,” and is less a tour documentary than a collage that wonderfully captures the mindset of a band on the road with a lot of spare time on their hands. In other words: twisted, demented fun. In other words, The Melvins!

The sound of a new band handing over one of its songs to one of their inspirations for a remix. The results? Wonderful

One of the best songs from one of the best albums by one of The Recoup’s favorite bands. It will chill you out if you need it, but it will also inspire you as you start your day as well…
