s/t (2012/SORRY STATE)
POST-PUNK-ROCK. After a series of compelling releases on labels like Static Shock, La Vida Es Un Mus, and Going Underground, HYGIENE bring their quirky take on the classic post-punk sound to Sorry State for this 2-song 7". If you're already a fan you know what to expect: deceptively simple but supremely catchy songwriting, spare arrangements, and memorable vocals that somehow sound remarkably British despite the fact that the singer is Canadian. Lyrically, these 2 songs address what HYGIENE know best: themselves. Limited to 500 copies.
HYPATIA / THE SOUTH
split (2004/SQUARE OF OPPOSITION)
HARDCORE. Florida's THE SOUTH present 6 songs of insane screamo-hardcore that somehow manages to be equal parts hook-laden and chaotic. On the flip side, Pennsylvania's HYPATIA over 7 more songs of super fast, thrash - vegan sxe and positiv! They even do a GORILLA BISCUITS cover for good measure. Every copy pressed is packaged in a beautiful hand-screened cover.
s/t (2014/STATIC AGE)
FOLK/POST-PUNK. utstanding debut LP by this one-man project. Distorted, isolated melodies out of a dusty bedroom. Hopeful and disturbing, but always hunting and in the red. This guy sitting between a big mess of worn out folk and post-punk records, creating a soundtrack for his imaginary movie about the rise and fall of mankind. Minimal, deranged anthems like warm slices of ginger pie served in a cold winter night. You'll get a 15 track clusterfuck of dronning and chanting bedroom style. A loner opus akin to CROMAGNON, THE FUGS or CHARLES MANSON.
PUNK-ROCK. Finally the long overdue HYSTERESE debut from 2011. HYSTERESE from the suburbs of Stuttgart...sorry student-town Tübingen deliver a stunning debut album after a demo. This is a beautiful mix of common and popular Portland and Sweden-styled punk-rock, in the vein of MASSHYSTERI, GORILLA ANGREB, THE OBSERVERS. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.
from breakfast to madness (2013/GENERAL SPEECH)
GOTHIC-PUNK. Official re-mastered reissue of their excellent tape on The Mob’s All The Madmen Records. Often overlooked due to its rarity, but long deserving of a quality reissue. Stunning female vocals over melancholy, yet catchy goth-punk. Not unsurprisingly what one might get after these punks listed a magazine ad saying they were looking for band members, who must be a fan of THE CURE, WIRE, and THE ASSOCIATES. For fans of the above and THE MOB and BLOOD AND ROSES. Limited edition of 500 copies.
s/t (2004/SOUND POLLUTION)

o day star, son of dawn (2013/END HITS)

I AM HERESY's music effortlessly combines noisy hardcore, raging punk, technical metal and heavy breakdowns.

I AM HERESY
s/t (2012/MAGIC BULLET)
POST-HARDCORE. The brainchild of BOYSETSFIRE vocalist Nathan Gray, I AM HERESY's sound is an eruption channeling the passionate hardcore fury of early BOY SETS FIRE, streaked ferociously down the middle with the metallic-tinged influences of fellow hardcore giants INTEGRITY and CONVERGE. Imposing - frenetic - unrelenting - and certainly unrepentant. Colored vinyl version includes digital download.
I AM HERESY
thy will (2014/CENTURY MEDIA)
POST-HARDCORE. Original BOYSETSFIRE vocalist, Nathan Gray, formed I AM HERESY in 2011 to live out his love for dark, violent noise. Another important component is the band drawing influences from diverse genres to form a unique sound. On "thy will", shimmering black-metal melodies crash with chaotic '90s-noisecore in the vein of DEADGUY and full-on thrash-treats fight vicious negativity reminiscent of Clevo hardcore icons INTEGRITY. In addition, I AM HERESY sprinkle in dark and heavy folk elements to add a whole different dimension to their sound. Vinyl version includes entire album on CD and 3 additional tracks.

I CALL FIVES
s/t (2012/PURE NOISE)

I CAN MAKE A MESS
SINGER/SONGWRITER. I CAN MAKE A MESS, the solo project of Ace Enders of THE EARLY NOVEMBER fame, doesn't just rely on its mastermind's prior work to stand on its own but creates its own sound that is more experimental and diverse, bringing together sounds of artists like BON IVER, IRON & WINE and AMERICAN FOOTBALL. Vinyl version includes bonus CD.
I CAN SEE MOUNTAINS
hope you never get it (2012/PANIC)
INDIE/PUNK-ROCK. Humans are born individuals, but somehow most spend their entire existence trying to be a part of something. For the most part, this doesn't apply to the Buffalo, NY natives I CAN SEE MOUNTAINS. Their brand of music could be stacked along other rock records, but stylistically, they fuse the latter of rock with the indie and punk and cut their own jib. Vinyl includes a digital download card.
I CAN SEE MOUNTAINS
life on a houseboat (2013/PANIC)
INDIE/POP-PUNK. At the end of 2012, I CAN SEE MOUNTAINS began an enlightening journey to write their debut, a record that would define the band's core ingredients: heart, and music that puts a smile on the listeners face and a thought in their head. Indie-rock-infused punk with some pop overtones. "life on a houseboat" produces a summer soundtrack for those days at the lake, road trips and making you feel like it's your first kiss all over again. Colored vinyl version includes a digital download and is limited to 500 copies.
