POST-HARDCORE. Maybe you've heard the term "artist's artist" - that's XBXRX. The core of the band is 2 brothers who are renowned for their impact on the SF/Oakland art/punk scene. Other musicians who have performed in XBXRX have also been part of pioneering underground bands such as THE FLYING LUTTENBACHERS, DEERHOOF. Departing from the improvised and experimental nature of their past releases , "o" is straight up aggression. Holding the same energy as a bomb explosion, they plow through 10 tracks in under 10min.. The tempo of the music goes by as fast as this limited 7" will sell-out. Vinyl includes MP3 download code.

POST-HARDCORE. XBXRX's joyous, high-energy musical outpourings have been championed by major figures in underground rock such as SONIC YOUTH, PEACHES, UNWOUND, DEERHOOF, and Q AND NOT U. They've also worked with such producers as Steve Albini, Ian McKaye, and Don Zientara. The band continues to progress and expand their musical horizons with this release, incorporating a wider palette of textures, rhythm, and structure, as well as gaining a newfound clarity in an effort to move beyond the non-stop blastbeat/screaming assault of previous releases while retaining their exhilaration that people expect from them.

POST-PUNK. XEROX from Iowa City plays that kind of post-punk that, while really catchy, has no problem peeling back the pop surface and careening into harsh downer territory. The band walks the wavy line between bands like WIRE and FUGAZI while taking the influence of THE FALL it wears on it's sleeve and propelling into weirdo almost psych deconstructions. Members of bands like SOLID ATTITUDE and NERV if you must know, but this band stands on it's own.

POST-PUNK. With a new line-up and some years removed from their young, violent, hardcore days, the instrumental prowess on "collision blonde" sounds less like their elder contemporaries and more a cleaner tone reminiscent of JESUS AND MARY CHAIN and THE CURE, yet sharp and uneasy in the vein of BAUHAUS' early, gothic post-punk edge. Some thracks are aggressively built up into a cathartic release, alluding to CEREMONY, ICEAGE and MEWITHOUTYOU at times. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.

POST-HARDCORE. "our home is a deathbed" features 11 songs by XERXES. The band took shape in early 2008 in Louisville with a sound that channels the energy and passion of mid-'90s originators YOU AND I and SAETIA, while adding the more upbeat and brutal thrash mentality of contemporaries such as TRASH TALK and AMPERE, making for a sound that runs the gamut of blast-beat aggression and emotional rumination. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.

POST-HARDCORE. Fusing elements of atmospheric post-rock and melodic-hardcore, Kentucky's emotive XERXES has spent the last years of their existence carving their own path with a true d.i.y. work ethic fueled by ever-evolving creativity. And the result has been nothing short of incredible, resulting in one of rock's most promising new bands. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.

HARDCORE/METAL. XIBALBA returns with 3 monstrous new acts of vengeance on "diablo, con amor..adios.", the 7" delivering the gritty, down-tuned, metallic hardcore grooves the band's followers have come to expect from the quartet over the past 7 years. XIBALBA also once again secured artwork from Dan Seagrave (Dismember, Entombed, Suffocation) to visually depict the wrath of these 3 relentless tracks. Colored (blau) vinyl includes a digital download card.

HARDCORE/METAL. RE-issue of XIBALBA's debut from 2011. This release complies all the tracks from their "madre mia" CD as well as the songs from the "earthquake" compilation, all remasterd with new artwork by Linas Garcys. Crushing, downtuned, '90s-style metalic new-school hardcore loaded with moshparts ala DISEMBODIED meets SEPULTURA. Colored (green) vinyl includes a digital download card.

HARDCORE/METAL. The Los Angeles five-piece, infamous for their deliriously heavy hardcore death-metal, is proving once again that their colossal clout outweighs the sum of their contemporaries. "tierra y libertad" finds XIBALBA in their most threatening form yet, forcibly colliding elite, '90s death-metal with reckless down-tuned doom tones and fist-swinging breakdowns which slam harder than a head-on collision. Across 45min. and 8 tracks of head-turning brutality, XIBALBA clarify their disregard for the recommended dosage of unholy stomp that a listener could possibly take.

LP 18.50€*


SXE-HARDCORE. xMOMOx is a vegan-straight-edge hardcore band from Germany with a '90s influence that can't be denied. Heavy, midtempo and dealing with political issues. Great bands like CHOKEHOLD, STRAIN, SNAPCASE or UNDERTOW come to my mind during listening to the songs. Vinyl is limited to 300 copies and includes a digital download card.

7" 3.00€*


INDIE/POST-rock. XO is the brainchild of twin brothers Jeff and Jacob Turner, who also perform in the band SAY ANYTHING. With XO, the brothers chart much different musical territory - exploring a mix of lo-fi surf-rock and shoegaze influenced by such groups as MY BLOODY VALENTINE, SONIC YOUTH and JOY DIVISION. "heart" is their debut album. Vinyl includes a digital download card.

LP 14.50€*


HARDCORE. This 24-page mini-zine gives you just a taste of the madness in the upcoming 288-page book, "xxx fanzine 1983-1988 hardcore & punk in the eighties". More of a companion piece than a preview, this 'zine features additional photographs and interviews that didn't make the book as well as some crucial pieces lifted from the book itself. Also included is a NOMADS 7" FLEXI which features the band covering CRUCIFIX's "how when and where" which flawlessly transitions into AGNOSTIC FRONT's crossover classic "the eliminator".



HARDCORE-PUNK. Irrepressibly catchy, Olympia based pogo punk with the wildest and most charismatic vocalist in contemporary d.i.y. punk. A guide to kissing the void and navigating our continued existence in a racist, capitalist hellscape. This is the soundtrack to fucking shit up, fighting back, defining yourself and seeing who joins.

7" 8.50€*


HARDCORE. Y plays hrdcore at hypersonic speeds with stop on a dime tempo changes into some hectic and catchy slow parts that quickly explode back into high speed fury. This LP contains the "ali bomaye" LP (1997), split 7" with DISCRIPT (1995), the "s/t" 7" (1996) and 2 unreleased songs all re-mastered - a total of 40 tracks in 40min.! Y does to the human brain what a tornado does to a trailer park. Their crust/thrash is full throttled from start to finish, with barely a moment to catch your breathe between songs. The lyrics are almost as rage filled as the music. Limited edition of 500 copies.

LP 11.50€*


POST/ART-ROCK. After the success of their debut 7", post-punk art-rockers Y PANTS performed regularly in NYC and other East Coast venues. In 1981 they toured Europe for 6 weeks and upon return went into the studio to record their only LP, "beat it down", released in 1982 on Neutral Records. The album extends the band’s signature pared down rollicking minimalism. The 10 songs are varied, using surprising and inventive instrumentation. The music is at once filled with a sense of longing and a fierce ironic rebellion. The songs covered a huge range of emotions with an entirely new syntax.
