POST-PUNK-ROCK. The 4th studio release from X finds the band at the top of its game. With producer Ray Manzarek (The Doors) at the helm again, the band bashes through 14 numbers that are decidedly more upbeat than the masterpiece predecessor "under the big black sun". Remastered vinyl includes a digital download card.

POST-PUNK-ROCK. The 3rd albums usually define a truly amazing band. Want proof? Two words: "london calling". And X’s "under the big black sun" is a record of equal importance and stature. It is a defining moment in American music that can never be equaled. Darker than its predecessors, it still rocks as hard as "los angeles" or "wild gift" - but in a grown-up way. This is one awesome slab! Remastered vinyl includes a digital download card.

POST-PUNK-ROCK. Though a small handful of its 13 songs predate "los angeles", X's 2nd album represents a giant leap forward for the band. "wild gift" stands as one of the '80s most fully realized rock 'n' roll LPs. John Doe and Exene Cervenka bring altogether more personal and biting lyrics to the mic, making for riveting performances. Remastered vinyl includes a digital download card.

POST-PUNK-ROCK. Before their legendary debut LP, X recorded a 1977 demo session that is a brilliant snapshot of the period, and a treasure for anyone with an interest in world-wide 1st wave-punk. "x-spurts" is 10 tracks - perfect raw/full recording, seething with desperation and urgency, this is the sound of early AC/DC meets "pink flag" meets early BLACK FLAG with everything cranked. 37 years on, Ugly Pop Records presents the 1st ever vinyl appearance of this seminal document.

GRINDCORE. Modern fastcore's blackest cult ascends once more from its knighted abyss to deliver 31 hymns of infernal savagery. "deprogrammed" deliver 27min. grinding music. Vinyl comes with gatefold-jacket and includes a digital download card with 40min. of bonus material.

GRINDCORE/POST-PUNK. XBRAINIAX is a familiar name for those into fast hardcore. The ideas of NO COMMENT taken to their conclusion, a nonstop whirlwind, insane complicated arrangements too fast and too furious for my brain to keep up with. This split is raw 4-track recordings, 3 short/fast/loud numbers and 1 long and slow creeper, to be filed with their upcoming LP as their best record yet. LETTUCE VULTURES join 3 tardcore anthems for fans of intelligent art music. If you’re not already familiar, well ah maybe it’s not for you. Their rendition of "walking on sunshine" is one of the best cover song of the year.

POST-HARDCORE. Maybe you've heard the term "artist's artist" - that's XBXRX. The core of the band is 2 brothers who are renowned for their impact on the SF/Oakland art/punk scene. Other musicians who have performed in XBXRX have also been part of pioneering underground bands such as THE FLYING LUTTENBACHERS, DEERHOOF. Departing from the improvised and experimental nature of their past releases , "o" is straight up aggression. Holding the same energy as a bomb explosion, they plow through 10 tracks in under 10min.. The tempo of the music goes by as fast as this limited 7" will sell-out. Vinyl includes MP3 download code.

POST-HARDCORE. XBXRX's joyous, high-energy musical outpourings have been championed by major figures in underground rock such as SONIC YOUTH, PEACHES, UNWOUND, DEERHOOF, and Q AND NOT U. They've also worked with such producers as Steve Albini, Ian McKaye, and Don Zientara. The band continues to progress and expand their musical horizons with this release, incorporating a wider palette of textures, rhythm, and structure, as well as gaining a newfound clarity in an effort to move beyond the non-stop blastbeat/screaming assault of previous releases while retaining their exhilaration that people expect from them.

POST-PUNK. XEROX from Iowa City plays that kind of post-punk that, while really catchy, has no problem peeling back the pop surface and careening into harsh downer territory. The band walks the wavy line between bands like WIRE and FUGAZI while taking the influence of THE FALL it wears on it's sleeve and propelling into weirdo almost psych deconstructions. Members of bands like SOLID ATTITUDE and NERV if you must know, but this band stands on it's own.

POST-PUNK. With a new line-up and some years removed from their young, violent, hardcore days, the instrumental prowess on "collision blonde" sounds less like their elder contemporaries and more a cleaner tone reminiscent of JESUS AND MARY CHAIN and THE CURE, yet sharp and uneasy in the vein of BAUHAUS' early, gothic post-punk edge. Some thracks are aggressively built up into a cathartic release, alluding to CEREMONY, ICEAGE and MEWITHOUTYOU at times. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.

POST-HARDCORE. "our home is a deathbed" features 11 songs by XERXES. The band took shape in early 2008 in Louisville with a sound that channels the energy and passion of mid-'90s originators YOU AND I and SAETIA, while adding the more upbeat and brutal thrash mentality of contemporaries such as TRASH TALK and AMPERE, making for a sound that runs the gamut of blast-beat aggression and emotional rumination. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.

POST-HARDCORE. Fusing elements of atmospheric post-rock and melodic-hardcore, Kentucky's emotive XERXES has spent the last years of their existence carving their own path with a true d.i.y. work ethic fueled by ever-evolving creativity. And the result has been nothing short of incredible, resulting in one of rock's most promising new bands. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.

HARDCORE/METAL. XIBALBA returns with 3 monstrous new acts of vengeance on "diablo, con amor..adios.", the 7" delivering the gritty, down-tuned, metallic hardcore grooves the band's followers have come to expect from the quartet over the past 7 years. XIBALBA also once again secured artwork from Dan Seagrave (Dismember, Entombed, Suffocation) to visually depict the wrath of these 3 relentless tracks. Colored (blau) vinyl includes a digital download card.

HARDCORE/METAL. "hasta la muerte", Spanish for "to the death", is XIBALBA's new full-length. The previous full-length "madre mia por los dias" stormed the hardcore world with its apocalyptic, down-tuned, slow-motion brutality. The band's ultra-energizing buildups and relentlessly brutal breakdowns instantly drawing comparisons to DISEMEBODIED, BLOODLET, and the heaviest of the late early 2000s hardcore scene as well as kings of low-end, groove-laden death-metal like OBITUARY. "hasta la muerte" once more is a lethal collision of brutal death-metal, vicious hardcore and oppressive sludge. Taking the concept of heavy to a new, crushing level!

CD 15.50€*

 

HARDCORE/METAL. RE-issue of XIBALBA's debut from 2011. This release complies all the tracks from their "madre mia" CD as well as the songs from the "earthquake" compilation, all remasterd with new artwork by Linas Garcys. Crushing, downtuned, '90s-style metalic new-school hardcore loaded with moshparts ala DISEMBODIED meets SEPULTURA. Colored (green) vinyl includes a digital download card.
