INDIE-ROCK. On his 3rd album, Brooklyn resident ZACHARY CALE casts a wide net, encompassing everything he's done previously whether solo or with band accompaniment. "noise of welcome" is a collection of songs that is distinctly modern in tone and substance. Moving from acoustic ballads and oddly tuned instrumentals to electrified country and pop the album projects a kind of psych/folk/rock hybrid, recalling the genre shifts of FLEETWOOD MAC's "tusk". Cale's signature finger-picking technique is reinforced with grander orchestral movements and a full backing band which helps to illuminate the brilliance of his craft. "noise of welcome" may prove to be ZACHARY CALE's greatest achievement as a singer/composer to date: a testament to his unique craftmanship and unconditional love of songs.

HARDCORE-PUNK. ZAGA ZAGA is new band from Haifa, Israel. As the title of the records says: it is their 2 song demo plus 4 new tracks. There are 6 songs of overpowering and hectic hardcore-punk. Imagine NOMEANSNO playing BLACK FLAG songs with a secret love for power-violence. Or reverse...or completely different. Anyway: it is fast, furios and fantastic! Colored vinyl includers a digital download card.

AMBIENT/POST-ROCK. Sprouting from the same mind that created THE BOOKS, ZAMMUTO marks a deep reinvention of the highly detailed, genre-defying spirit that made seminal albums. Given THE BOOKS' success as an experimental collage-pop project, founder Nick Zammuto could have comfortably extended that thread. Instead he has given us a record that is progressive and forward-looking, intense and driven, with hugely varied rhythms and melodies. The whispered, folksy vocals that became a trademark of THE BOOKS are for the most part shed in favor of an uncharacteristically confident, soaring delivery, often fueled by a wide array of vocal effects. The result is a man-machine sensitivity that ultimately enhances the songs' emotional intensity. Vinyl includes a digital download card.

POST/SCREAMO-HARDCORE. Finally all songs that ZANN from Leipzig released so far (till 2004) are banned on this CD. It contains 15 remastered tracks from their split 7" with FUNERAL DINER, the tour split 7" with RACEBANNON, ANGER IS BEAUTIFUL, one compilation song, a song from their demo, their own 7" on Crucificados, the split 7" with THE 244GL and their split LP with BLAME GAME. With all their previous releases and extensive touring ZANN accomplished to establish themselves as one of Germanys best bands. Metallic (in a positive and passionate way) screamo-hardcore that is at times chaotic, crazy, and complicated with a lot of tempi- and break changes, never comfortable and lame, but always merciless, unpredictable and last but not least extremely brutal. The sound is accompanied by thoughtful and critical german vocals/lyrics that get rather personal at times. If you dig ACRID, URANUS, NEIL PERRY or the early Bremer-School, you'll love this band. Comes with a thick booklet completely with liner notes and pictures. [PK 042]

METALCORE. The original 1996 recording of the debut full-length from ZAO. There exists a small pocket of hardcore kids who will insist that one of ZAO's earliest lineups was their best, despite later incarnations' popularity. "all else failed" is chunky, heavy, and pummeling and derivative of the metalcore style initiated by EARTH CRISIS and maintained at the time of this album's release by STRIFE and other hardcore groups. This record released by Steadfast earned ZAO the attention of Tooth & Nail Records, who signed them to a multi-album deal. Remastered and available for the 1st time on vinyl.

METALCORE. Pulled from the same sessions as 2016's "the well-intentioned virus", ZAO's 5-song MLP, "pyrrhic victory", is the 3rd release on the band's own Observed/Observer Recordings. Hardly a collection of b-sides, this short/no-frills attack was put together with as much care as an album. Vinyl includes a digital download card.

POST/METALCORE. In 1995, Zao released their 1st album, "all else failed", on Steadfast Records. Never a band to repeat a past success and always searching for new boundaries to push within their own music, "the well-intentioned virus" finds ZAO utilizing just as many familiar touchstones from their catalog as introducting new ones. Dense and clastrophobic one moment, beautiful and spacious the next. Vinyl comes in an eyecatching gatefold-cover and includes a digital download card.

METALCORE. Previously released in 2015 in a limited edition run of 600, this new pressing of 1000 is on black vinyl with all-new cover art by Matt Kerley (who did 2016's "the well-intentioned virus"). Contains an early mix of "xenophobe" and the track "fear itself", which is exclusive to this release. Vinyl includes a digital download and a guitar pick as a gimmick.

HARDCORE. "violent noiz life" is exponentially better than the demo, both in recording and sound quality. If you've never heard the band, it's comprised of members of some of the only interesting raw-punk bands to have existed in the U.S. in recent times. This 7" is GLOOM worship/crasher crust done right. One could say that ZATSUON crashes harder than most crasher crust bands, particularly in the way in which they don't just fall into the lazy trap of sounding like straight DISCHARGE-style d-beat. Combine that with noisy, yet discernible riffs and one of the most recognizable voices in the genre and we've got yet another instant, modern classic record from NYC.

HARDCORE/METAL. ZEALOT R.I.P. started years ago when life-long friends Jason Hamacher (FRODUS, BATTERY, COMBATWOUNDEDVETERAN) and Mike Schleibaum decided to collaborate and write music that's fast and heavy. It took a few years for them to settle into a sound that's somewhere between ENTOMBED and BORN AGAINST. The band was recently solidified with the additions of PIG DESTOYER's Blake Harrison and FAIRWEATHER's Peter Tsouras. One-sided vinyl includes a blank b-side and is limited to 250 copies.

PUNK-ROCK. ZEBRASSIERES is fashionably good, fashionably stylish, and fashionably unforgettable. This relatively unheard of Ottawa band popped out of a few different networks sometime in 2008. They created a style and a sound of their own. A 4 piece setup, guitar, bass, farfisa organ, and drums, shared vocals, huge hooks, awesome singing, and great melodies. The songwriting is somewhere between new-wave, pop-punk and straight ahead punk. This album marks their first 8 songs ever to see the light of day. Recognizable similarities tie them to bands like the OKOMONIKS, the DICKIES, DEVO, and the SPITS. Limited european one-sided LP repress of their sold-out debut, originally released on Going Gaga Records in 2010. Remastered and housed in a silkscreen sleeve and new artwork!

PUNK 'N' ROLL. Seattle, punk legends ZEKE returns with their 1st new album in over 14 years entitled "hellbender". Short, fast, loud, and to the fuckin' point, "hellbender" contains 15 tracks laced with ZEKE's signature mix of hyperspeed thrash-punk and MOTÖRHEAD-possessed, hard-as-nails rock 'n' roll. Complete with raucous, in-your-face production, "hellbender" is the culmination of a band 25 years into their career, sounding more aggressive, immediate, and turbo-charged than ever before. Colored (orange) vinyl includes a digital download card.

PROGRESSIVE-ROCK. Debut from this Canadian artist, with the active participation of members of HOLE/SMASHING PUMPKINS, TOOL, BROKEN SOCIAL SCENE and THE ELECTED. ZENITH MYTH is a progressive soundscape. The listener finds themselves rising up tremendous mountains and plunging into the deepest waters. Here you'll find influences that flow between the likes of MY BLOODY VALENTINE (emotional), NINE INCH NAILS (industrial), PELICAN (ambience), and PINK FLOYD (cosmic). Vinyl includes a digital download card with 2 additional tracks.

These guys are one of the most exciting bands around and while they have obvious influences their attention to melody and quality song writing stands out in today's punk scene. Packaged in 2 color screen-printed (inside and outer) cover with a risographed insert and hand cut stamp on the inner sleeve.
