INDIE-ROCK. JAILL, a self-described psych-pop combo who play with undeniable guts. Recorded nervously in the leaky basement of an old funeral home, with overdubs finished over a year’s time at home. Recalling the glory of '90s lo-fi pop, these songs possess a sinewy tension honed from years of basement shows and a palpable, gritty rock sense born of enduring cold, cold Midwest winter months. Bright guitars and amped-up energy skipping like a stone over Kircher’s dense lyrics, only to sink into momentary mellow moments. "that’s how we burn" is sure to make the girls freak, the guys geek, and all the lovers weak in the knees. LP includes MP3 download code.

POST-HARDCORE. Like a staggering monument built to honor the gods of ISIS, THESE ARMS ARE SNAKES and FUGAZI, JAKARTAH formed from the wreckage of broken lives and broken promises. From a city as famous for its heroin as its salmon, Vancouver, BC, "In the nervous lights of coincidence" shockingly sits comfortably beside the great indie-hardcore records of the past 20 years. JAKARTAH sounds immediately familiar and new, hopeful and desolate; dishonest and truthful. Revealing a tendency towards prog-like time changes and heavy riffing, the Canadian trio's songs are as challenging as they are compelling.

FOLK/POST-ROCK. JACK BELLOWS had quit music. Or so he thought. After fronting NEVA DINOVA for more than 15 years which included 5 full-lengths. BELLOWS returned to music with a renewed sense of the intrinsic value of art and its ability to express the commonality of human experience. His debut full-length, "new ocean", offers a mix tape of different kinds of songs hanging out on one record - love songs that are not necessarily ballads despite their introspective gauziness, with left turns into drunk-in-the-sun bossa nova and blue-eyed-soul ruptured by fuzz guitar.

INDIE-ROCK. When Pennsylvania post-grunge rockers SUPERHEAVEN called it quits in 2016, it didn't take long for frontman and guitarist JAKE CLARKE to get to work on his solo material. Gone is the sludgy hard-rock of his days in SUPERHEAVEN in favor or a more indie-rock sound but his deep guitar tones are still ever-present. Wilkes-Barre, PA's SPUR churn out some fuzzed-out, '90s-influenced indie-rock that takes cues from the greats like THE CRANBERIES. Limited edition of 500 copies.

EMO/INDIE-ROCK. JAMIES ELSEWHERE has crafted a moving and ambitious indie-rock album that is destined to be one of the most talked about debuts of the year. "Guidebook for sinners turned saints" surely will be the catalyst that starts this band's career and puts them in front of fans who want honest, real rock music in a time of mediocrity. Combine the hooks of SILVERSTEIN and HAWTHORNE HEIGHTS along with the melancholy of CHIODOS and a lighter TAKING BACK SUNDAY and you have an incredible mix that will connect with fans of honest and emotional indie-rock.

HARDCORE-PUNK. After a debut full-lenght a year ago JARADA already crafted 8 new brickwalls. This Israeli band continues to deliver angry, punching and chaotic music to the table, with some really bleak and negative overtones that are intertwined with hebrew lyrics that are mixture of personal thoughts with some politics thrown in, "ma’agal sina’a" means “a circle of hate” in hebrew and is a natural follow up to the earlier release. As on the 1st record, you can expect fierceful vocals, chrushing hardcore riffs and plenty scraps of everything thats great about heavier side of punk music in the last decade. One-Sided vinyl includes a digital download card.

HARDCORE-PUNK. JARADA is a four piece political hardcore-punk band from Tel Aviv, Israel. JARAGA means anxiety in hebrew and this name perfectly captures the bleak sound the band is going for, in these thirteen tracks full of angry, chaotic and forceful hardcore sound! As for the lyrics, the band was sick of boring, mostly apolitical music, so they decided to remind the punks around the globe that punk is a political movement. The band is heavily influenced by radical leftist and anarchist politics, political apathy in Israel and older Israeli bands such as DIR YASSIN and NEKHEI NAATZA. Also, if you like NEGATIVE APPROACH guitar hooks or some recent bands like REPOS or LOS CRUDOS, JARADA will be right up your alley! Vinyl includes a digital download card.

INDIE-ROCK. Limited edition 7" includes 2 never-before-heard covers of BLACK SABBATH songs on side-a, and a hand-drawn etching of a ram on side-b. This pair of newly discovered, home-recorded BLACK SABBATH covers is no different. MOLINA, a through-and-through fan of metal peels back the sinister and stoned elements of SABBATH, zeroing in on the loneliness and brooding. If you do attempt to play the etching on Side B it will sound absolutely awful.
