POST/FOLK-ROCK. "there's no leaving now", the newest record from Kristian Matsson's aptly titled moniker, THE TALLEST MAN ON EARTH, finds the Swedish troubadour trading in the sense of urgency that fueled his first two records for a confidently relaxed approach. The results are paralyzing. Drums, piano, baritone guitar, woodwinds and pedal steel layer this collection of songs that never compromise virtuosity for immediacy. The songwriting is every bit as detailed and captivating as his previous work, but this time around, Matsson is showing a few more cards. Vinyl includes a digital download card.

SINGER/SONGWRITER. "out of the garden" is a mission statement that underscores the "power" in power-pop and is punctuated by lyrics as razor-sharp as the hooks. Written over a 2-year period during a break from touring, the album's emphasis on redefining feminine expectations was shaped by primary songwriter Jess Abbott's experiences living in Minneapolis and working at a liquor store in a rough part of town. Abbott's fearlessness to discuss personal topics is referenced in the album's title. Thick, 180gr, colored vinyl includes a digital download card.

ALTERNATIVE/INDIE-ROCK. TAPE REC hails from Rio in Brasil and they play a perfect trip back to raw '90s grunge/indie/punk. This record really just has all the influences that a kid getting into music in the '90s would want - it's got the raw stripped down lo-fi sound that bands like THE BREEDERS and BUTTERGLORY do, with occasional noised out mania of SONIC YOUTH or PIXIES. The vocals are pure sugary gold, and even come with the occasional SCREECHING WEASEL style guitar lead. Seriously, this is just the catchiest, most infectious stuff with a perfect raw production - no polish here at all - perfect grunge-pop for your punk heart!

INDIE-ROCK. "outside" is TAPES 'N TAPES 3rd full-length. The record will be released on the band's own label, Ibid Records. TAPES 'N TAPES is a hybrid that resembles LOW fighting it out with MY BLOODY VALENTINE. This album is unique in an era of slick '80s chic, mixing the opaque jams of PAVEMENT with the bruised-teen freakiness of THE PIXIES. LP includes a MP3 download code.

POST-ROCK. This is the 5th solo release by RODAN and JUNE OF 44 alum O'Neill, whose music straddles the line between alternative-folk singer/songwriter and foreboding drone quite well. "a ways away" is intimate in sound yet distant emotionally. Most of the songs are feature just O'Neill on acoustic guitar, with some occasional atmospherics, but in the end they feel cold, as if somehow abstract. Maybe it is just the fact that we are wired to expect intimacy from a singer accompanying herself on guitar.

HARDCORE-PUNK. TARANTULA features a number of former CÜLO members among their ranks and pretty much pick up right where CÜLO left off. Everything about this band is pretty much perfect. Infectious hardcore-punk tunes to get everyone moving composed by the freaks from CÜLO. This band winning everyone over with their hooks and amazing song writing. This european pressing features 6 tracks total.

HARDCORE-PUNK. "the very best of sex and violence" is the 3rd installment from Chicago’s TARANTÜLA with 5 glorious hardcore-punk tracks. For those unfamiliar, TARANTÜLA is the reincarnation of CÜLO and they play an intoxicating blend of classic punk and meat and potato hardcore. You can hear the influences quite clearly - the snotty, aggressive punk of bands like the ANGRY SAMOANS and ZERO BOYS, the earnest drive of early '80s midwest hardcore like ARTICLES OF FAITH and early HÜSKER DÜ, and a dash of DEVO irreverence - but they’re swirled together in a way that’s just different enough from anything you’ve heard before.

7" 7.00€*

 

HARDCORE-PUNK. "weird tales of radiation and hate" is the 2nd 7" from Chicago’s TARANTULA. The band features former members of CULO with the additional layer of the always popular bass player. Musically, TARANTULA is just as catchy as CULO, a little less mid tempo, with a more obvious classic punk influence.

SLUDGE-METAL/HARDCORE. "innen aussen" is the debut album by crushing fresh sludge monsters TARASQUE. Hailing from Münster, the power trio create heavy, sludge infused post-metal with an emphasis on being as loud as possible. The 5 tracks here are centred around enourmous, spine-crackingly heavy riffs, broken up with gentle dynamic builds and grooving, almost stoner-rock tinged sections. "innen aussen" clips along at quite a pace in general for a sludge release, and many of the tracks here are certainly neck-snappers that will sit excedingly well with fans of groove and headbanging. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.

STONER-METAL/ROCK. The debut of San Francisco female fronted stoner-rock upstarts TARRAKIAN mixes haunting ambience with shrill rocking melody and sharp rhythm and focus. Adding elements of metal, crust, doom, and avant-garde acts to create a sound that is discernable and adventurous. Although this is their first output the musicianship and recording quality is fine-tuned giving them a confident layered sound. Amazing artwork by Andrei Bozikov who has worked with the likes of Municipal Waste and Phobia. 3 tacks with a runtime of nearly 20 min.. Limited to 500 copies only!

POST-PUNK. From Vancouver, Canada comes the debut 7" from TAXA. Brooding and bass-heavy punk in the vein of UNWOUND, SHOTMAKER, and MISSION OF BURMA. Members play in DAMAGES. At times chaotic, other times strangely melodic with alternating male/female vocals. But always energetic. Vinyl includes a digital download card.

HARDCORE. After a debut 7" on the highly revered Hospital Productions, TAYLOR BOW have emerged from the darkest recesses of New York City with this decrepit, relentless wrecking ball of feedback and filth. Spanning 15 songs with perfect 4 track production and running over 30min. in length, this record perfectly captures the omniscient fear and the oppressive magnitude of existing in municipal oblivion. First press of 600 copies sheathed in extra heavy old style tip-on covers.

HARDCORE-PUNK. TEAM TYSON aus Berlin, die neue Band der Hälfte der legendären THE TEN BUCK FUCK beglücken uns heuer mit ihrem Debüt Album, dass all die Fäden aufnimmt, die THE TEN BUCK FUCK seinerzeit aus der Hand gaben. Andere Bands mit der Beteiligung des Teams hörten auf die Namen TIGERS OF DOOM, SLICK, MOTTOCROTTE. An US-Hardcore geschulter Punk (oder andersum), Rock'n'Roll, herrliches Shouting, nervöse Gitarren. Wer noch ein Herz hat für Bands wie BLACK FLAG, frühe rotzige US BOMBS, aber auch JAWBREAKER, PARTY DICTATOR oder die frühen HIVES, wird hier belohnt werden.
