POST-PUNK. Two new tracks from San Francisco’s YOUNG OFFENDERS. Their recent 7" on Parts Unknown was not only very well received and made waves in various magazines but also made numerous MRR staff picks for top-ten records of 2007. This 7" offers 2 tracks of well executed post-punk and power-pop blend with loads of hooks and power. This band should be huge! Think the ADVERTS, early GANG OF FOUR and REALLY RED join together!

POST-PUNK. The much anticipated split between 2 of the Bay-Area's best punk bands of recent years. Catchy yet pissed, melodic yet driven, both bands compliment each other's hook-laden anger. THE YOUNG OFFENDERS following up multiple 7"s and split from the past few years with their best songs yet, while GIANT HAYSTACKS contribute their last and best studio recording. An instant classic - get it while you can.

POST-PUNK. YOUNG PIONEERS - dusting off their spurs, poised to release their long awaited full-length "high again" on K Records. YOUNG PIONEERS formed in Olympia's nascent punk scene during the early '80s. They've not lost their gift as masters of the dark art of post-punk pop psychedelia, welding wicked melody into pop hooks. They beat a mean tambourine. Leather jackets and a pompadour - studs and eye make up - YOUNG PIONEERS have created a massive sound layering the guitar organ drumbeat. Vinyl includes a digital download card.

INDIE-ROCK. In 2010, Carmen Cirignano started writing the songs that would appear on YOUNG STATUES' eponymous debut album just one year later on Run For Cover Records. The band spent nearly all of 2012 on the road but still managed to release a covers release and "age isn't ours". Arrangements and vocal phrasing sprinkled with tinges of Americana drive tracks and truly see YOUNG STATUES mastering the art of indie-pop. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.

INDIE-ROCK. It's been years since YOUNG STATUES' last release, and it's safe to say plenty has changed. On the new 7" "amarillo", the band's refreshingly upbeat blend of indie-pop and alt-country is elevated to new heights by stellar production and musicianship. It's definitely weird to feel nostalgic for the "simpler times" of 2011, but YOUNG STATUES' latest release will have fans feeling that way. Vinyl includes a digital download card.

INDIE-ROCK. This sophomore album from Philladelphia's YOUNG STATUES is their most intriguing to date. From the album opener until the record stops, there is an alluring, haunting and hazy ambience that makes "flatlands..." sound as though it is an audible dream. The intense introspection of the band's earlier releases is taken to new, darker places by the vocals. For fans of THE EARLY NOVEMBER, INTO IT. OVER IT. and BAND OF HORSES. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.

NOISE/GARAGE-PUNK. YOUNG TRYNAS play an ugly, unrefined form of hardcore-punk. They're simply making music the only way they know how, rather than attempting to reenact any bygone era. Having previously self-released these 5 songs on a highly-limited tape in 2013, White Denim Records has had the tracks remastered for vinyl, keeping the basement crud and upping the sonic punch for what is surely one of the most unique yet gnarly hardcore 7"s this year or any.

HARDCORE. YOUNG TURKS is proof that the hardcore movement is in full swing. This album has fast guitar riffs, plenty of two steps/stomps beats, and a lot of energy. As a whole this album is fast from beginning to end filled with aggression. Expect layered guitar harmonics and melodies, reminiscent of VERSE, DEFEATER, KILLING THE DREAM. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.

HARDCORE. Portland's YOUNG TURKS is back with 4 songs that capture the unique sound and feel of Northwest hardcore. "where i rise" is a declaration of life moving forward, while trying to let go of the past and the former themes of betrayal and hopelessness have been exchanged for the strength to overcome and the will to endure. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card and is limited to 500 copies.

POST-ROCK. Since their inception in 2006, YOUNG WIDOWS have released 4 studio albums - each pushing their restless drive towards the incomparable a little further. "decayed: the years of cities, wound, lightness, and pain" perfectly charts YOUNG WIDOWS' evolution from inspired post-hardcore trio to peerless entity crafting profound combinations of post-punk, noise-rock, heavy-psych, and gothic-folk. The 15 tracks in this collection originally appeared on stand-alone 7"s, b-side, splits with like-minded artists and rare compilations (4 of them have never been released until now). Vinyl includes a digital download card.

POST-ROCK. YOUNG WIDOWS are a creatively restless bunch. "easy pain" is easily their densest, most disturbingly addictive record yet. The guitars are enormous, the drums are pummeling and the trademark, gut-churning bass is more jaw-dropping than ever. Disregarding all boundaries and pushing forward with a masterful command of post-punk, noise-rock, pseudo industrial, experimental doom and goth ,YOUNG WIDOWS emit the intimidating force of a 10-piece with the heart and soul of a classic power trio. Vinyl includes a digital download card.

POST-ROCK. Formed in 2006, YOUNG WIDOWS originally drew comparisons to the '90s heyday of cacophonous noise-rock ala SWANS, JOY DIVISIONS etc.. A couple years and 3 albums later, the band is digging much deeper and further back for inspiration. With their sprawling post-punk blasts shining cracks of light through pitch neo-noir fever dreams, YOUNG WIDOWS have clearly become a more sinister and thought-provoking beast.

POST-ROCK. Arriving 2 years after their debut album, "settle down city", "old wounds" completes YOUNG WIDOWS' transformation into a top-shelf rock band firing on all cylinders. Forging the best parts of THE JESUS LIZARD, NICK CAVE, PJ HARVEY, FUGAZI and MELVINS, "Old wounds" is a series of dynamic, thoughtful tunes that will certainly push most speakers to their breaking point. Features former members of BREATHER RESIST, BLACK CROSS and NATIONAL ACROBAT.

EMO-ROCK. YOUR FAVORITE TRAINWRECK features icons Jeff Caudill (ex-GAMEFACE) and Popeye V. (ex-FARSIDE) sharing the songwriting, lead singing and guitar duties. Their sound fuses Popeye's love of vintage power-pop (ELVIS COSTELLO) with Jeff's Southern California countryrock influences (EAGLES) along with their own brand of heartfelt, melodic punk-rock. This self-titled LP offers a slick, yet powerful, and scrappy sound, laden with heavy doses of vocal harmonies and layered instrumentation. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.

GARAGE-PUNK-ROCK. "automatic aspiration" deliver 6 new tracks from Japan’s best (and most prolific) power-pop punks. This is lo-fi garage-punk that sounds like THE ZOMBIES jamming with THE CLASH. The amount of territory covered in this 12" is pretty amazing for being a mere 6 songs: from the vocal-shredding punk, to rocksteady, to laid back and melancholy garage rock. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.
