INDIE/FOLK-ROCK. Before GEORGIE JAMES, Laura Burhenn (half of the former duo) had spent her early years crafting music on her own. So when GEORGIE JAMES split, she went back to what she knew. "what we lose in the fire we gain in the flood" was recorded in the rugged hills of Oregon in the summer of 2009 with singer-songwriter/producer Richard Swift at the helm. Laura and Richard took turns at instruments until the record was fully orchestrated. The album features some notable guests besides Richard's Swift's contributions on backing vocals and nearly every instrument imaginable.

GLAM-PUNK-ROCK. Albany's premier power-pop outfit MYSTERY GIRL come back with their 2nd slab of vinyl with chock full of infectious melodies, ripping rock 'n' roll guitar, and plenty of snotty attitude to back it up. This release is solid start to finish with nods to glammy proto punk and classic '77 style like NEW YORK DOOLS and SLAUGHTER & THE DOGS, while keeping sugary hooks ala THE SPEEDIES and EXPLODING HEARTS sprinkled throughout.

CRUST-HARDCORE. MYTERI’s debut full-length album is a sprawling and unforgiving opera of darkened heavy punk that draws much influence from legendary crust bands like AMEBIX, ANTISECT, and from head-on collision-like d-beat bands like WOLFPACK, DOOM and DISFEAR. In any case, this is a prime example of amazing melodic heavy crust - if you like TRAGEDY, this shit will clamp on to your soul and not let you go ever again. Ten songs of misery and despair - d-beat and booze throughout this raw mayhem.

HARDCORE-PUNK. Harrowing metal tinged guitar, raw punk, hardcore blasts and some furious angry vocals bring this Japanese unit to a raw hardcore form with strong guitar leads.

Blasts of melodic energy, swaggered with distortion and noise, thrashed out at top speed. An intense tremor of the hardcore punk explosion, crash landing into a Tulsa, Oklahoma Cowboy bar in 1983 on "Punk Night". No nonsense, straight-forward hardcore punk rock, soaked and steeped in enough rock and '77 catchy punk to surface hooks, choruses and melody amidst the blur. Recorded live in 1983, "Live At The Crystal Pistol" was originally released as None Of The Above's demo tape and predates all of their vinyl releases. The demo impressed Maximum RockNRoll enough to include the demo song "Propaganda Control" on their seminal international punk compilation "Welcome To 1984." N.O.T.A. released two 7"s "Moscow" (on Unclean Records) and "Toy Soldiers" (on Rabid Cat), and one self-titled LP (om Rabid Cat) in the 1980s. The 1990s saw a reunion of the band with new members and releases on Unclean and Havoc Records. "Live At The Crystal Pistol" includes five unreleased songs from 1983 and raw, energetic and unpolished versions of classic songs such as "Nightstick Justice," "Moscow," and "On The Pavement." The packaging is similarly raw, true to the demo and the time, with new liner notes from lead singer Jeff Klein.

STONER/DOOM-ROCK. On their self titled debut NAAM conjures both post-apocalyptic dazzle and unsettling feeling via punishing, deeply penetrating repetition and twisted vapor trails of guitar. NAAM’s raw, feedback-powered sound pools densely distorted riff-o-rama with throbbing bass lines and echoey, buzzy vocals that seem to hang in the open spaces in between. Calling for comparison to HAWKWIND, SLEEP, DEAD MEADOW.

OI/STREET-PUNK. NABAT was formed in 1979 in Bologna, Italy, and quickly rose to being one of its most popular and beloved oi/punk bands. This collection brings together some of their rare and highly sought after 7" and tape tracks from their brilliant discography. You get all their recorded tracks from '82-'84, including their 1st tape and both of their early 7"s, plus early compilation tracks. Vinyl contains a postcard flyer, sticker and photo insert.

INDIE-ROCK. The long out of print NADA SURF "Karmic" release is finally repressed. This release offers up a portrait of NADA SURF in its formative stage, before the New York City-based power-pop band made the leap to a major label during the alternative-rock boom in 1996. With its relatively lo-fi production and restless energy, "Karmic" highlights NADA SURF's punchy, guitar-driven attack more than frontman Matthew Caws's earnest charm or keen songcraft making. This is the one that started it all! "Karmic" includes abonus track called "Pressure free" that has only been previously available on a rare 7''.

DRONE/AMBIENT. This recording (on a single sided 7") demonstrates NADJA's ability to fuse their sound to the construct of the pop cover, with the cover in question being "long dark twenties", which was written by Paul Bellini of THE KIDS IN THE HALL! In doing so, NADJA displays traits rarely exibited in their music, like full vocals, drumming, even the good old classic pop chorus, all in such a remarkable way this it shows all that the possibilities for reinvention with this group are far from exausted. Comes with hand letterpressed covers (both inside and out) and will be available in colored vinyl.

DRONE/AMBIENT. Canadian doomgazers NADJA make an outstanding contribution to Southern's ongoing Latitudes series with this immense album, divided into 2 long-form compositions. The 1st, "jaguar" is a slow-building droner that builds up into a booming low-end dominated soundscape that exudes abstract sludge-maetal gravitas. "sky burial" is quicker to assert itself, cranking up the NADJA drum machine to a curmudgeonly bpm count and wailing through fizzy, colourful walls of electronics bass that lurch about in a minor key.

LP 13.00€*

 

DRONE/AMBIENT. When the esteemed Canadian avant-drone duo NADJA and the German experimental drone pioneers TROUM combine their exceptional styles, they form something more vast than their parts. These 3 collaborative tracks are the result of aspontaneous improvisation in 2008. The songs' powerful and emotional drone melancholy work in many micro-and-macrocosmic ways. After the excellent collaboration record with PYRAMIDS another masterpiece from NADJA. Limited to 500 copies on 180gr vinyl.

DOOM-METAL. Good things come to those who doom: 18 years have passed since NAEVUS from Southern Germany have released their debut album via Rise Above Records. After a 13-year break (1999 - 2012) the four-piece decided to start working on a 2nd release. Four years later "heavy burden" is finally out. Those who have listened to the German doom institution in their earlier days will notice that NAEVUS take a more laid-back stance nowadays than they did at the end of the '90s. Groovy, occasionally jazzy doom-metal, hard rocking stoner parts, the mellow vocals, the well-versed drumming: NAEVUS have grown up, but don't sound less compromising in the slightest. Colored vinyl comes in a gatefold-sleeve with additional lyric booklet (12 pages) and includes a digital download card.

SINGER/SONGWRITER. Some people go a lifetime without knowing their mission in life, without feeling they have true calling, and without knowing why they even do what they do. NAHKO is not one of them. And that calling and mission has never been clearer than it is on NAHKO AND MEDICINE FOR THE PEOPLE's 3rd full-length album. On "hako", Oregon-born singer/songwriter NAHKO's voice is strong. His mission is clear. The mandate has been thrown down. It's what Crazy Horse would say when he went into battle, "hoka, hey!" action to the words and the lyrics. Colored vinyl comes housed in a gatefold-cover and includes a digital download card.
