MERCHANDISE FEAT. DUM DUM GIRLS
red sun/echo (2015/SUB POP)
POST/INDIE/GARAGE-PUNK. 4AD group MERCHANDISE has collaborated with Sub Pop recording artist DUM DUM GIRLS for the "red sun/echo" 7", an exquisite, 2-track offering. This 7" was recorded during the summer 2015 in Tampa, Berlin and NYC. Vinyl includes a digital download card.
children of desire (2012/JAGJAGUWAR)
POST/INDIE-PUNK. MERCHANDISE are a trio from Florida. The band has evolved steadily yet remained the same core group of collaborators playing music that generally falls under the vague umbrella of post-punk. MERCHANDISE's 2nd full-length features their own unique brand of danceable, yet dark, punk/new-wave that brings the brit-pop of THE STONE ROSES, new-wave of NEW ORDER, the ephemeral noise of shoegaze and a cross possibly inspired by MORRISSEY himself. Their most cohesive piece of music and, undoubtedly, their best work yet. Features members of CULT RITUAL, NAZI DUST and NEON BLUD. Vinyl includes a digital download card.
after the end (2014/4AD)
POST/INDIE-PUNK. With roots planted firmly in hardcore and punk, Florida's MERCHANDISE has put out records on Katorga Works, Jagjaguwar and Night People Records before settling on the legendary 4AD. Still self-recording and producing their own music, MERCHANDISE's sound remains heavily influenced by THE SMITHS, JOY DIVISION and NEW ORDER while utilizing acoustic guitars almost primarily on "after the end" but retaining the danceability the band has become well known for. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.
2012 (2014/P. TRASH)
PUNK-HARDCORE. WRONG HOLE features BRUTAL KNIGHTS, TEEN CRUDE COMBO, QUEST FOR FIRE etc. members. Stupidity is one of the most underrated qualities in punk and it’s one that Nick Flanagan, the former BRUTAL KNIGHTS frontman, never shyed away from. And thankfully that doesn’t change with his new band WRONG HOLES. This LP is packed with aggressive party jams, including fun punk, hardcore and garage anthems built on distorted guitars and Nick’s cleverly witty lyrics. Enjoy!
cold storage (2015/IRON LUNG/CHRONICALLY UNIT)
POWER-VIOLENCE HARDCORE. This is a collection of 7"'s, compilation tracks and splits from the beginning of IRON LUNG; up to the 1st full-length "life. iron lung. death". This is a limited edition, professionally duplicated/sealed cassette which come with a printed cover.
dronekill (2015/VIDEO DISEASE)
HARDCORE. After an excellent demo tape, CONSTANT FEAR has taken the time to perfect and craft an absolutely phenomenal debut LP that steamrolls any and all competition. Imagine the furious guitar crunch of DISCHARGE being blasted through a gritty, NYC hardcore filter spewing out from a practice space in the bowels of Los Angeles. Comprised of members of DRY ROT and KNIFE FIGHT, the members are well versed in creating memorable, unbridled and incredibly aggressive hardcore. This is hardcore for those who do not know the meaning of the word "soft". Limited edition of 500 copies.
POWER-VIOLENCE HARDCORE. East-Van-Sludge-Violence sums it up. MUDLARK's earth shattering full-length LP is an explosive combination of power, mid '90s sludge and ear shattering thrash which almost borders on noisecore at times. Another staple in the Canadian power-violence resurgence. If you enjoy THE ENDLESS BLOCKADE stuff you will be soothed by MUDLARK's songs of unease. First 500 copies include a MUDLARK 7" as a bonus. What are you waiting for?
from the seeds that we have sown (2013/INIMICAL)
CRUST-HARDCORE/METAL. This latest release finds MISERY looking not only backwards but forwards as they celebrate 25 years together without a lineup change nor a break. The tracks show that MISERY will always be progressing and growing. The massive crushing heaviness, where armageddon shows that no one has perfected apocalyptic crust/stenchcore like MISERY has. The middle of this release finds them reaching back to the 1st demo. The latter features the return of Al Long who left MISERY to join NAUSEA shortly after the demo. The final 2 songs pay homage to their roots in the van by covering SACRILEDGE and CHROME, once again featuring Al Long, both adding their own ingredients that began to shape MISERY in 1988. Any band would be lucky to celebrate 25 years with a release this strong.
spires burn/release (2012/ARMAGEDDON )
STONER/PSYCHEDELIC-ROCK. After 2 full-length albums on Meteor City, Massachusetts-based ELDER return with "spires burn/release". You'll get 2 tracks channeling California desert-rock ala KYUSS while still retaining some of the SLEEP influence of their earlier releases.
STONER/PSYCHEDELIC-ROCK. Joining the interplay of heaviness and melody which has become the hallmark ELDER sound is a host of new meanderings through uncharted kosmische territory; kraut-rock, prog as well as classic heavy-rock and doom can all be heard unfolding throughout the record's 5 songs. By giving equal credence to riffs and atmosphere, "lore" bypasses genre constraints, the group's penchant for progressive songwriting and melody shining more brightly than ever. While ELDER's sound is now much more evolved and varied, it is still consistently based around rock and metal, originally influenced by such heavy landmark bands as BLACK SABBATH, SLEEP and ELECTRIC WIZARD. Vinyl includes a digital download card.
DOOM-METAL. Drawing from classic nwobhm and traditional metal influences, this five piece comprised of veteran local musicians (MIND ERASER, RIVAL MOB, DOOMRIDERS, etc) have turned out a well crafted solid as hell metal album. They've definitely done their listening homework over the years. Strong and catchy songs, heavy but not tuned down, recorded well but not overproduced, it captures the old d.i.y. ethic of metal in the early '80s. The vocals have an almost Ozzy quality at times, solid as hell. Vinyl is housed in a stoughton tip-on sleeve with printed inner sleeve and comes with a digital download card.
...is a real boy (2016/DOGHOUSE)
INDIE-ROCK. This is the 10-year anniversary reissue of SAY ANYTHING's 1st release which. It's smart, inspired rock 'n' roll beyond the pale of simplistic genre labels. This is your late summer soundtrack, the perfect companion to the bittersweet feeling of good times in the waning sunshine. Double vinyl comes housed in a beautiful gatefold-cover.
HARDCORE. The debut 7" from current Austin residents and Virginia expatriates, CUTTING LOSSES. "endless" is an 8 song record with negative views and crunchy riffs. No frills hardcore with plenty of two-step parts. For fans of RIGHT BRIGADE and TRIAL, and for those with a general disdain for life. Vinyl includes a digital download card.
rock and roll misery (2012/SPHC)
PUNK-ROCK. Punk often focuses so much on hip and hyped big city scenes that we forget that punk is more than just fashionable young people going through their expected motions. Predictable style, cool personalities, high school politicking; destroy it all. GLOBSTERS is a resounding wake-up call that punk should be for true freaks and geeks, an open door for those unable to fit into the beaten path that society at large will offer us. This new 7" trades in the tape-spliced style of the first 7" for real instrumentation and a wider variety of songwriting, from short, fast, loud ragers to mid-tempo melodic love songs.
