too many parties/kinda funny (2010/WALLRIDE)
GARAGE-PUNK-ROCK. The newest manifesto from Montreal, Canada's RED MASS, fronted by Choyce of CPC GANGBANGS. Two infectiously catchy and equally deranged slices of noisy, experimental, garage-punk. Electronic and live drums, fuzzed out guitars, sound effects with hook-drenched choruses to tie it all together into a manic odditorium of psychedelic weirdness.
outside my window (2008/WALLRIDE)
INDIE/ALTERNATIVE-ROCK. HEAD HOME is a indie-rock/alternative band from Baltimore. The band is best known for its catchy songs driven by overdriven guitar hooks and the voice combinations of Mike Stearns and Jesse Davis. Think stolen BEATLES riffs with a fuzz pedal and dipped heavily in some J.Mascis (DINOSAUR JR.) sauce with a side order or SUPERCHUNK.
let go (2008/WALLRIDE)
GARAGE-PUNK-ROCK. Loud, thick, heavy and loud! Denton, Texas' THE PUMPERS come hard and dont let down! In the vein of THE MUMIES and TEENGENERATE, we got loud everything and still plenty of room for catchiness. In all the lame arty or poppy bands classified as rock in '90s, these guys are the saving light. Featuring members of WAX MUSEUMS.
DEAD RADICAL / REPUBLICORPSE
split (2010/GIVE PRAISE)
POWER-VIOLENCE HARDCORE. This is the final musical output for both of these bands! You'll get brutal power-violence, rotting grindcore, marijuana debacles. Just crucial!
BEAU NAVIRE / REPUBLIC OF DREAMS
SCREAMO-HARDCORE. Oakland, CA's BEAU NAVIRE, comprising members of LOMA PRIETA and various other Bay-Area bands, deliver their best material to date following a slew of releases in only a little over a year. They bring a nervous violence to their heartfelt brand of chaotic hardcore which uniquely plays out in their songwriting. Reminiscent of bands like NEIL PERRY and FUNERAL DINER. Germany's REPUBLIC OF DREAMS is made up of members of LOUISE CYPHRE and play absolutely frantic, feedback-drenched hardcore at a nonstop breakneck pace without sacrificing an ounce of melody for the chaos. Fans of RAEIN and other european screamo bands take note.
ANIMAL INSTINCT / BLEED INTO ONE
HARDCORE. Switzerland’s ANIMAL INSTINCT team up with German veterans BLEED INTO ONE for a great piece of wax. Limited to 300 items.
STONED AMBASSADORS, THE
bring you down (2011/LABOR OF LOVE)
POST-PUNK. Brooklyn's THE STONED AMBASSADORS deliver 4 songs in the grand tradition of THE BRAIN JONESTOWN MASSACRE, THE STOOGES and THE JESUS AND MARY CHAIN. The follow up to their self-released 7" captures a more aggressive, dynamic side of the band. Three original heartbreakers and a cover of THE WHO's "the good's gone". Limited to 400 copies on black vinyl, sleeves printed on recycled board. Vinyl includes a digital download card.
with love (2009/HEX)
POST-HARDCORE. Since 2006 Portland's PRIZE COUNTRY have been cranking out a heavy, progressive style of post-hardcore that is most closely comparable to later SNAPCASE, but also incorporates elements of QUICKSAND, DRIVE LIKE JEHU and FUGAZI to create a pretty unique sound. Vinyl comes with gatefold-cover and includes a digital download card.
strike when provoked (2008/SIGNIFICANT)
HARDCORE. Fresh off the beaches of Miami, Florida, TRAMPLE feature members of MAKE OR BREAK and bring a hard-nosed style of hardcore that took influence from bands like CRO-MAGS, JUDGE and SICK OF IT ALL.
we sail at dawn (2006/PLUTO)
METALCORE. IMPERIAL bring to mind such contemporaries as AS I LAY DYING, KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, while expanding on the parameters with creative songwriting and their exciting dual vocal attack. Emerging from the renowned Orlando metal/hardcore scene, IMPERIAL has toured constantly since the release of their MCD, building a highly devoted fan base across the country. Raise the white flags because IMPERIAL sets sail at dawn to conquer all in their path.
bearings & distance (2008/LEVEL PLANE)
HARDCORE. GHOSTLIMB is a three-piece from southern California formed in 2006. Presenting ridiculously pissed hardcore with the elements of melody, thrash and general poor disposition, GHOSTLIMB compile all the rage a minute-long song can handle with sprinklings of social critique and dissatisfied sarcasm. This CD collects both their 2006 self-titled debut and 2008 "bearing & distance" LP.
lemon (2014/TAKEN BY SURPRISE)
POP/GLAM-PUNK. From the mean sour streets of Ottawa, Canada comes the 2nd full-length of MOTHER'S CHILDREN. "lemon" deliver 12 tracks of stompy and glammy power-pop with that old wham-a-lam-bam-thanks-ma'am attitude that we're used to from those four mouseketeers. Get your fix of Vitamin MC from the sweetest fruit that grows in Canada. Vinyl includes a digital download card.
are you tough enough? (2011/TAKEN BY SURPRISE)
POP/GLAM-PUNK. Canada seems to be the new fertile ground for smashing power-pop. MOTHER'S CHILDREN hail from Ottawa, the same place as great bands like SEDATIVES, STEVE ADAMYK BAND (who they share a member with), WHITE WIRES and many others are from there. This 6 track MLP is the follow up to their well received full-length on Deranged. This is power-pop glam 'n' roll driven to perfection - that should be spinning on your record player multiple times a day. Take your personal hits from the "powerpearls" compilations add your favorite BOYS, STIFFS and FAST CARS records and imagine you would be warped right back to the '70s, where you would be seeing all those bands live on stage, because this is the moment when you realize that you are dancing and beerspitting right in front of the stage of a MOTHER`S CHILDREN show.
CHAINSAW TO THE FACE
agonizing pain and perpetual misery (2010/RÖDEL)
POWER-VIOLENCE HARDCORE. This LP collects every recorded song from CHAINSAW TO THE FACE between 2004 and 2009. It does not include their 2nd demo and the SHOTGUN FACELIFT split. The songs from those releases are included in different versions. You'll get the tracks from the split with BACKSLIDER, split with HUMMINGBIRD OF DEATH, split with SPOONFUL OF VICODIN, the tracks from the "this comp kills fascists" and their 1st and 3rd demo.
