PUNK-ROCK. REGGIE AND THE FULL EFFECT's not-at-all accurately titled debut album, "greatest hits '84-'87", makes a triumphant return to vinyl after nearly 2 decades out-of-print. The solo project of James Dewees (THE GET UP KIDS, MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE, COALESCE) combines infectious melodies, sappy love songs, good-natured yet offbeat slyness, and comic sensibility like virtually no other "band" before them. REGGIE albums are full of skits, hooky pop songs, and chunky guitar playing that appeal to fans of punk rock, emo, and hardcore alike. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card with 7 additional tracks.

INDIE-ROCK. SILKWORM cared, and didn't/wouldn't fudge. The emotional heft of the performances always registered first, but the playing was full of jarring, chaotic moments that aren't the results of the mere "chops". Sometimes direct, sometimes utterly cryptic. A notoriously self-reliant band, SILKWORM swelled its ranks considerably on "italian platinum", originally released in 2002. Symbiosis defined this band, and you're better off hearing for yourself. Colored (red) vinyl includes a digital download card.

INDIE-ROCK. Throughout, FOXYGEN's keen ability to experiment with and expand upon classic pop and rock sounds bloom, and features legendary drummer Jim Keltner. "seeing other people" sees FOXYGEN at their best - chopping up pop culture and spinning it into a sticky, wicked web. The album is filled with self-referential tales of touring, partying, of being young and in a band, and saying farewell to the grittier, darker aspects of it all. Vinyl includes a digital download card.

SLUDGE/DOOM-METAL. Re-release of the debut album from 2001, for the first time on proper vinyl. SPANCER deliver one of the 1st European sludge-doom albums from a time when slowness was not yet acceptable and sludge wasn't a synonymous for post-metal and student-rock. "countdown to victory" is limited to 500 pieces, comes on thick 180gr pure black vinyl and housed in an eyecatching cover.

FOLK/POST-ROCK. "droneflower" is in bloom. The new collaboration between Marissa Nadler and Stephen Brodsky (CAVE IN, MUTOID MAN), is a sprawling and expansive exercise in contrasts. It is the sound of the war between the brutal and the ethereal, the dark and the light, the past and the present, and the real and imagined. Both of them had been wanting to explore songwriting that didn't fit into their existing projects, and they soon became energized by the prospect of working together. One of the 1st ideas they discussed was a horror movie soundtrack, and while "droneflower" isn't that, it is a richly cinematic album.

HARDCORE. Armed with a powerful punk and hardcore sound, present subject matter on what it means to be human. Though there are callbacks and influences from classic hardcore-punk bands such as VERBAL ASSAULT, ENDPOINT, SPLIT LIP, MAJORITY OF ONE or DAG NASTY heard in their songs, a current/modern element is present as well. TUNING's members have also previously played in a number of bands such as DEAD HEARTS, HALFMAST, MODERN PROBLEMS, SPÜIRITS among others. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.

HARDCORE. SAFE is an Italian-German hardcore band and started out as a studio project. In 2018, they were locked into a studio and recorded 9 songs for their "power of bliss" album. Out came a mix of melodic and solid hardcore, a perfect compromise between the typical youth-crew sound of the '80s with a lot of melodies. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.

HARDCORE/METAL. YEAR OF THE KNIFE are certainly one of the more standout acts amongst their stablemates currently. Where bands like JUDICIARY write formulaic songs that still hit the mark, "ultimate aggression" proves these metallic straight-edge aficionados have their heads screwed on. "ultimate aggression is a strong statement of intent from a young band. With the current rebirth of the original metalcore sound, YEAR OF THE KNIFE have a feral combination that they’re beginning to hone. YEAR OF THE KNIFE show themselves to be at their best when cruising at a mid-tempo with classically frantic riffs crashing behind them. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.
