always trapped (2012/TOPSHELF)
POST-HARDCORE. Cut from the same cloth of today's most influential hardcore, MY FICTIONS is a force to be reckoned with. Though their influences number among acts like PG. 99, CONVERGE and AMERICAN NIGHTMARE, the family MY FICTIONS was born into is one that is revolutionizing the genre today. "always trapped", is the band's follow-up to "i want nothing" featuring 3 tracks that will leave you wanting more. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.
i want nothing (2014/FLANNEL GURL)
POST/SCREAMO-HARDCORE. This 10" is the 2011 debut from MY FICTIONS who released meanwhile a split with THE SADDEST LANDSCAPE, showcasing influences that range from bands like PG.99 and ORCHID to CONVERGE.
MY HEART TO JOY
reasons to be (2011/TOPSHELF)
INDIE/EMO-ROCK. "reasons to be" is the band's follow up-to their critically acclaimed full-length, "seasons in verse". MY HEART TO JOY takes cues from BRAID, SAVES THE DAY and GET UP KIDS on this release to produce their most clean sounding album yet. Vinyl includes a MP3 download card.
MY IRON LUNG
grief (2012/PURE NOISE ENTERTAINMENT)
POST-HARDCORE. MY IRON LUNG hail from San Diego and bring a heartfelt and melodic, yet somewhat abrasive, brand of hardcore that crosses the line into '90s emo in the same vein as PIANOS BECOME THE TEETH and TOUCHE AMORE. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.
HARDCORE. Texas' MY LUCK lay down 5 tracks that document the tumultous emotions that have rendered the band one of the most chaotic and aggressive live acts in the hardcore scene today. This is MY LUCK's 2001 demo plus a bonus track.
Endurance (2004/NOT JUST WORDS)
Nach 2 7' es auf Youngblood Records, gibt es nun, als kleinen Vorgeschmack auf das kommende Album, eine weitere 4 Song Single der Texaner. Und wie man sich schon bei MY LUCK denken kann, gibt es auch hier wieder angepissten, aggressiven Hardcore zu hoeren. Sie erinnern mich so ein biáchen an eine Mischung aus INTERNAL AFFAIRS, AMERICAN NIGHTMARE, THE DEDICATION und STRIKING DISTANCE. Die Songs wurden schon im Jahre 2001/2002 aufgenommen, was aber lediglich an der Produktion ein wenig auffaellt. Tipp!!!
MY REVENGE / F.P.O.
split (2004/THIRD PARTY)
HARDCORE. This split contains 11 songs of rambunctious and urgent hardcore-punk spirit. MY REVENGE deliver 5 tracks of punked out STRAIGHT AHEAD and early SICK OF IT ALLtype NYC hardcore and F.P.O. deliver another 6 of early Dischord meets 625 Records thrash numbers.
HARDCORE-PUNK. Composed of Jason O'Toole (LIFE'S BLOOD) on vocals, Andy Guida (SUPERTOUCH/ABSOLUTION) on drums, and Lew and Hobi (OUR GANG) on bass and guitar, MY RIFLE bring hardcore-punk that's a bit more groove-oriented, while lyrically addressing different issues of religion.
MY UNCLE THE WOLF
flush (2010/WE DELIEVER THE GUTS)
STONER-ROCK. Laid-back and scraggy stoner-rock from New York. "flush" portrays the guys at their smoky, herbal best and sends the listener to a chilled-out trip to hallucinatory spheres. In that way you'll get 14 songs in 55min. Buzzing guitars, which was done often in the '80s mixed with traditional stoner-rock.
MY UNCLE THE WOLF
the king's ramson (2009/WE DELIVER THE GUTS)
STONER-ROCK/SLUDGE-METAL. The music world is full of fucked band names. And it always gets worse. As stupid as the name is, the quartet burns a musical hellfire. The 5 track 10" is a raw, bloody bastard of southern-rock and sludge. Full of murder riffs, deadly grooves and fierce, cool vocals, MY UNCLE THE WOLF celebrate a firework of revelations. Anyone who likes bands like DOWN, EYEHATEGOD, doesn't come past MY UNCLE THE WOLF.
generals (2012/SADDLE CREEK)
INDIE/FOLK-ROCK. Following 2010's critically acclaimed debut "what we lose in the fire we gain in the flood", singer-songwriter Laura Burhenn teamed up with producer Richard Swift (The Shins, Richard Swift) again and emerged with "generals", a sophomore album fully armed. "generalsd" is filled with armies of stomps and claps, sweeping full spectrum orchestrations, and moments that range from intensely personal please to shout-out-loud protests with teeth. Musically you can hear echoes of early PJ HARVEY, politically-charged NINA SIMONE and low-era DAVID BOWIE. Vinyl version includes a CD of this entire album.
dekavermes (2012/GIVE PRAISE)
HARDCORE-PUNK. Harrowing metal tinged guitar, raw punk, hardcore blasts and some furious angry vocals bring this Japanese unit to a raw hardcore form with strong guitar leads.
pasivos/muertos (2009/LENGUA ARMADA)
HARDCORE-PUNK. pasivos/muertos" is the 2nd 7" from this San Francisco band featuring members of LOS CRUDOS, LIMP WRIST and LODO Y ASFALTO. N.N. delivers 4 tracks of hardcore-punk with melody and fury while maintaining a political, personal message with loads of bite. A Spanish-language release and another to add to thegrowing list of U.S.-based Latino hardcore-punk.
N.Y. HOODS, THE
neutral: '86 demo (2012/UNITED RIOT)
HARDCORE. For the 1st time ever on vinyl is this often-overlooked mid'80s demo from NYC hardcore misfits, THE N.Y. HOODS, whose members went on to play in bands like SIDE BY SIDE, ABSOLUTION, BURN and BREAKDOWN. Vinyl includes a digital download card.
INDIE-ROCK. The long out of print NADA SURF "Karmic" release is finally repressed. This release offers up a portrait of NADA SURF in its formative stage, before the New York City-based power-pop band made the leap to a major label during the alternative-rock boom in 1996. With its relatively lo-fi production and restless energy, "Karmic" highlights NADA SURF's punchy, guitar-driven attack more than frontman Matthew Caws's earnest charm or keen songcraft making. This is the one that started it all! "Karmic" includes abonus track called "Pressure free" that has only been previously available on a rare 7''.
