Jars is Russian punk rock. D.U. will add that there’s a touch of noise rock. The band’s EP ПОДЛОГ is up for name your price on Bandcamp while the CD version contains the JARS II LP tracks, all from Pogo Records. The record came out last year, but the label is promoting it again. And besides, the EP is pretty awesome. Below is a video for the track “MEHT” from the EP.

This hit our inbox this week and I was curious, it’s not often we get Cyrillic letters in a subject line!
I had never heard of Jars before so like any good writer did some digging: they’ve been a band since 2011, based mostly in Moscow and have released 4 albums along with a few EPs.
Jars clearly have a wide range of influences drawing on noise rock and post rock mostly with dark, loud vocals. It’s grinding but not unmanageable - scratchy punk vocals make it accessible but heavy enough to start a mosh pit.
The album itself is riotus, furious, in your face and conjures up Friday night in a small venue just throwing yourself about, completely losing yourself to the thrash guitars and smash of the drums. Track ИМПЕРИЯ (The Empire) is just full on metal post-hardcore noise with guitar harmonies that make you just want to listen to it again and again.
The title when translated means Forgery. Now I don’t speak Russian but with the cover being a CCTV camera bleeding so profusely it creates a sea of blood, I can’t help but assume it’s not praising the all seeing eye of governmental Big Brother…fitting giving I’m actually writing this before the result of the UK General Election…
Jars didn’t make it to the UK on their last tour - fingers crossed for a show next year!

Jars, a trio from Moscow, Russia, recently had their latest EP, Подлог, reissued on pro-duped CD-R alongside 2018's ДЖРС II album. This is some insanely badass noise rock with tracks that run anywhere from 2 to 14 minutes and the shit is heavy, swerving, craggy, and nasty. Think Eisenvater meets Unsane meets Throat, plus occasional outbursts of chaotic metalcore or murky post-punk, too. Like all great noise rock trios, the tracks are loaded with hulking basslines, hard-hitting percussion, and lots of maniacal character across a variety of vocal atmospheres. We're talkin' high-level material right here! This is damn, damn good.

(...) With over 69 minutes of pure nasty music of noisy punk you could ever ask for? Jars are the key to your enjoyment of not JUST giving you noise, aggression or angry punk rock, but giving you double treatment of aggression/angry punk, sheer noise, buzzsaw/noisy guitar riffs, instrumentation sections, plenty of melodies, rhythms, beautifully composed, craftmanship/musicianship & noise/punk rock music, Even the Forgery album as some nice punk ‘n’ roll melodies (...)

Iniciamos el jueves con fuertes sonidos punk rock, de la mano de JARS.
ПОДЛОГ, es el nombre que lleva éste EP de 5 pistas, el cual, le dará ese golpe de energía que tanto te gusta para tu playlist.
Si te gusta el punk rock, entonces, debés darle un vistazo a ПОДЛОГ.

JARS is a Russian noise/punk/post-hardcore trio formed in 2011.Their latest collection of songs is 2019's EP ПОДЛОГ (Forgery in English) released via P.O.G.O. records.
As the EP starts, for nearly 1 minute and a half you won't hear any proper vocals, just some random screams (and I mean that literally) accompanied by a tastefully raw guitar riff. In fact the opening track is a brief exercise on how to build chaos. When all the instruments kick in with full force near the end, all hell breaks loose.
The next tracks show that the band is not just sheer anger and aggression. The songs have here and there melodic guitar lines (there's even a little bit of At The Drive In in the guitars of the second track), the drums/bass combo provides some hard-hitting grooves reminiscent of post-punk/industrial (the fourth track wouldn't be out of place in Killing Joke: Official's debut album), and the vocalist can also sing like an average citizen at times.
The real surprise is the closing track, a 9-minute moody instrumental piece flirting with post rock and sludge and ending in typical noise/drone fashion.
The fact that the band recalls so may different genres in just 5 songs shows how original this Russian trio can be.

Not exactly new but it’s a very memorable release from last year that I’d just end up considering every time I make one these articles so I may as well throw it in now. This is a very loud album that takes on a few forms. Much of it I’d compare to the good ol’ experimental days of post-hardcore, particularly perky bands like NoMeansNo. The guitars and drums are very much rock or grunge styles while the vocals shift between alt rock and punk, even hitting the hardcore side of punk. It’s a unique album.

Jars are a devilishly brilliant combination between Shellac’s dislocated grooves, driving bass and skull scraping rhythm guitar and a slice of the darker end of metal — it’s such perfect idea you wonder why no-one has done it before. The three piece thrill with a powerful post punk utilising the Albini method of linear noise but with all that use of space. Huge sound scapes are built from the guitar/bass/drums. A creeping insurgent uneasiness in this dark terrain. This is a crashing claustrophobia and a very intelligent use of minimalism and space.

La banda que os presentamos en esta ocasión nos vienen de Moscú se llaman JARS, vamos hablar un poquito de su último material que salió a finales de agosto, llegó a nuestros oídos y nos gustó y llamó la atención, como para comentar la placa en cuestión, se llama ПОДЛО, por ahora no lo tienen en formato físico. Y a qué nos vamos a enfrentar con JARS, pues una banda que pulula sobre el noise rock, desde unos iniciales Nirvana hasta unos Unsane más tranquilos, pasando por supuesto por Helmet, todo ello cantado en su lengua materna que además queda del carajo. A diferencia de sus anteriores trabajos aquí le añaden matices industriales y ruidistas manifestándose sobre todo por los martilleantes bajo y batería contrastando con momentos melódicos que sus anteriores trabajos, como por ejemplo el tema que abre ВЕЩДОК, el segundo trallazo МЕНТ suena a Nirvana de Bleach, para ПОДЛОГ endurecen la propuestas verbalizando más agresividad post hardcore. ИМПЕРИЯ es cruda, taladrante e hipnótica donde le llegan esos ramalazos de nuestros amados Unsane, mi tema preferido. Como punto final está la canción más larga de este obra de JARS llamado БИСАЙД tema que comienza tranquilito parece casi los primero Radiohead al que le añaden las capas ya recurrentes del sonido noise rock de la propia banda, endureciendo la propuesta del tema, gracias al prominente bajo, buen final para este trabajo que no está nada mal, aunque prefiero su anterior disco ДЖРС II.

Поглог на руском значи фалсификат. Бенд свира брзи и бесни младалачки панкерски noise рокенрол. Noise је присутан и у музици и у бесним вокалима; панк приступ провлачи се кроз цео материјал. Има ту и доста импровизација и примеса алтернативне музике уопште. Веома интересантно је да ово звучи светски добро, а највећи плус су по мени вокали на руском који дају својствени печат и посебан шмек. Не знам о чему су текстови али агресивно и енергично извођење говори у прилог неком каналисању беса, незадовољства, бунта, генерално свега што млад човек има, или би по мени требао да има у себи. Немам податке о томе колико бенд дуго постоји, да ли има још неких издања или слично.
Све у свему једно кратко издање коме треба дати шансу јер има ерупцију енергије спремну да изазове неку реакцију, у то сам сигуран, већ на прво слушање. Последња нумера смирује ситуацију, у питању је један инструментал који говори да бенд има ширину када је распон изражених емоција у питању. С обзиром да noise музика, рекао бих, има мало мању публику од рецимо хипер популарног black метала, ово је можда албум који би могао пажљиво да вас уведе у noise ако волите панк, рокенрол и сл.

По словам Антона Образины, при сведении нового EP Jars ориентировались, в том числе, на британцев Idles, и это заметно. Не сказать, чтобы на «Подлоге» музыканты стали более дружелюбными к слушателю (когда вообще Jars были дружелюбными?), но пластинку вполне можно рекомендовать для знакомства с творчеством москвичей тем, кто их никогда не слышал, если такие ещё остались.
Группа не стала продолжать линию предыдущего альбома «ДЖРС II» и ещё сильнее нагонять мрака и жути, а выдала вместо этого четыре хлёстких прямолинейных трека (один из которых записан совместно с питерской группой «Макулатура») и финальный 9-минутный инструментал, поначалу спокойный и лишь в самом конце переходящий в привычный агрессивный нойз.
Тексты наполнены образами, которые будут непонятны, возможно, только тому, кто последние лет 10 находился в глубоком криогенном сне. «Мы не ждём перемен, мы ждём пиздеца. В автозаке есть место для всех». «Меня отпиздят — мне будет нормально, мой дом снесут и мне будет ништяк». Знакомо, правда? Вообще, узнавать себя в героях песен Jars — то ещё удовольствие, но иногда бывает не лишним задаться вопросом «а не плюнет ли мне я вчерашний сегодня в лицо?» Ну а империя мне тоже не нужна (и далее по тексту).


From Moscow, some great metal/punk gaze to finish this list. On the record label Pogo Records.

La banda rusa de Post Hardcore / noise con sede en Moscú JARS lanzó en Agosto del 2019 su EP ПОДЛОГ ( que se puede traducir como "Falsificación").
