HATS AND GLASSES
s/t (2008/TEENAGE DISCO BLOODBATH)
INDIE/EMO-ROCK. HATS AND GLASSES play a brand of jangly indie-rock that is as eclectic as it is nostalgic. Recalling the harmonies of THE BEATLES and the raw stomp of THE RAMONES. All 3 members of the band pull their weight sharing lead vocal duties. Add to the mix foot tapping drum patterns, poppy guitar jabs, off-kilter keyboard runs, distorted bass and these Bostonians end up with music that is refreshingly memorable and danceable.
bodies (2015/FYSISK FORMAT)
HARDCORE/METAL. HAUST present "bodies" - their 4th offering as a renewed and reworked band, expanding their black-metal/punk hybrid with elements of psychedelia, hypnotic noise-rock and a ghostly sense of melody. While "bodies" is still has a huge part of of HAUST's trademark raw rudimentary rage, it is also their most complex work to date, fusing nihilism and ambition to show that punk can be more than pure aggression. "bodies" is about breaking boundaries and destroying everything that stands in its way. It is also about sticking together and melting into a collective body. Vinyl includes CD version.
fall (2014/FYSISK FORMAT)
HARDCORE/METAL. An exclusive 7" from the masters of psychedelic punk. the 7" feature the album taster "fall" on the a-side and and a cover of THE BYRD's "lady friend" on the b-side. Silkscreened cover art, inlay and innersleeves.
no (2013/FYSISK FORMAT)
HARDCORE/METAL. Three years after their previous album, HAUST are back with their most raw and primitive release to date: In 9 short tracks the listener is pulled back into a time where rock 'n' roll and punk were synonymous with rawness and vulnerability. After 2 records and splits with OKKULTOKRATI and NEXT LIFE, HAUST were on the verge of decay and dissolve. Full of new ideas and drive, "no" was created in 2 short weeks full of arguing, distrust and rehearsal. Pure and hateful - raw rudimentary rage. Vinyl includes CD version.
powers of horror (2011/FYSISK FORMAT)
HARDCORE/METAL. Black-metal has come a long way since it emanated from Norway’s darkened shores in the late '80s and with just about every other genre blending with the chainsaw elements of hardcore, it was only a matter of time before this harsh metal institution became cross-pollinated too. HAUST's 2nd outing, "powers of horror", is a fearful and frenzied affair, with harshended vocals set against a backdrop powerhouse of hardcore-style axework, heavy duty bass and pummelling drums. It's a fucking glorious cacophony spliced with a sick sense of humour nice! A true horror! Comes with eyecatching gatefold sleeve.
10.17.09 (2010/BRIDGE NINE)
HARDCORE. "10.17.09" is a special LP/CD+DVD of HAVE HEART's final show. Six cameras captured the sights in the venue and the room was mic'ed to capture every sound from the band and the crowd from this once-in-a-lifetime show. Colored vinyl comes with gatefold-cover and includes a digital download card. CD+DVD includes 3 additional tracks.
the things we carry (2015/BRIDGE NINE)
HARDCORE. This is the debut full-length "the things we carry" (2006) from Massachusetts' most sincere HAVE HEART. From the mecca of hardcore, Boston, comes 11 unrelenting songs full of substance not found in today's scene. From three long years of hard work and dedication comes the product of their heart and soul, combining the early influences of CHAIN OF STRENGTH and TURNING POINT with later great acts like MOUTHPIECE. With the production of master Jim Siegel (Guns Up!, Blacklisted) the massive sound and fury of HAVE HEART was perfectly captured in 27min. of pure energy. Unable to stop until their message is heard by everyone. Colored (green) vinyl includes a digital download card.
what counts (2015/TRIPLE-B)
HARDCORE. 2014 marks the 10-year anniversary of HAVE HEART's debut 7", "what counts".

The tracks have also been remastered to bring the songs back to life. Colored (white or orange) vinyl includes a digital download card.

a place of our own (2014/HOPELESS)
INDIE/EMO-ROCK. Following up an album on Topshelf Records and split with DAISYHEAD on No Sleep, Baltimore's HAVE MERCY presents their debut effort for Hopeless Records, an 11-track album of sensitive, sensible indie/emo-rock jams akin to bands like THE JEALOUS SOUND, SEAHAVEN and EARLY NOVEMBER.

HAWKS AND DOVES
year one (2011/NO IDEA)
EMO-PUNK. Gared O'Donnell had a very crappy year. Essentially, his band (PLANESMISTAKENFORSTARS) broke up and his wife dumped him - so Gared came to Gainesville to record his solo album. While he was there, he was befriended/rescued by Chad Darby. Along the way, George Rebelo (HOT WATER MUSIC) inadvertently got roped into helping write keyboard parts and a wee bit of drumming while he was at it. Other supporting players include the illustrious Jon Gaunt, Matt Raddic,k and Chris Wollard. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.
Islands of ayle (2008/SOUTHERN)
For years, one-man maestro Vice Cooler (who technically is HAWNAY TROOF) unintentionally remained lo-fi. "Islands of ayle" stands as a notable turning point. As animated as it is sentimental, it will undoubtedly be a welcomed evolution as well as a surprise to friends, enemies, and strangers alike. The bass lines are a welcomed bonus as someone finally loaned Cooler a synthesizer! "Islands of ayle" pushes electronic dance music further down a trail that it has lately avoided: completely fucked pop music. Featuring guest appearances by Randy Randall (NO AGE), Mary Pearson (HIGH PLACES), Bretzel Goring (STEREO TOTAL), Annie Lewandowski (THE CURTAINS), Jamie Stewart (XIU XIU), Jenny Hoysten (ERASE ERRATA) and Carla Bozulich (EVANGELISTA).
the silence in black & white: acoustic (2014/INVOGUE)
ACOUSTIC/INDIE-ROCK. HAWTHORNE HEIGHTS is a band who has definitely made their name in the music scene. Having toured the world times over and selling over a million records, they are a force to be reckoned with. Hailing from Ohio, the band has released 5 albums in their tenure with no sign of stopping. This vinyl captures acoustic versions of the songs from their now-classic record "the silence in black and white".
