We Need No Swords is moving towards hiatus. We’re no longer accepting review submissions, although we’ll continue to work through the current review pile as and when we can.

Our current podcast series will also continue for the next few months until that, too, will take a break.

The blog and podcast may reappear in the future.

A heartfelt thanks to all of the artists, producers, labels and like-minded heads who have sent me or recommended music over past three years.

Good luck. Onwards!

  1. Hi, my name is Ryan Hall. I run a small, digital-only label called Heligator Records. I recently released a compilation and a single I think you would be interested in. The compilation is by Lake Mary who has released albums with Scissor Tail Editions, Wounded Knife, etc… Visit is a ten track compilation of SLC/Denver based artists in a variety of disciplines. Here is the link:


    The second release is a single by Cincinnati-based Drone musician Zijnzijn Zijnzijn! called “Around A” .


    Let me know if you would be interested in covering these releases and I can supply you with DL codes. Thanks!

    Ryan Hall
