I probably won't do a full webstore email / update until later this week so here are a few new releases worth checking out in the shop ...
"On their debut MLP, San Francisco, CA’s Flesh World plays ice-soaked
punk rock led by dark and infectious guitar flourishes and a
just-under-the-surface pop sensibility that makes each song an immediate
stand out track. Featuring band members who are all veterans of the DIY
punk scene — from bands including Limp Wrist, Brilliant Colors,
Needles, and more — Flesh World brings influences from a host of punk
sub-genres together, calling to mind the tense moodiness of classic
British post punk, the sneer of the 1977 school, and just a hint of C86
flourish and feedback. Most importantly, this MLP includes six
hopelessly catchy songs that will work their way into your skull like an
infection without a cure. The album comes in a full color sleeve
designed by guitarist Jess Scott including a double sided poster with
doubles as lyric sheet."
"THIS IS TACOMA, NOT OLY Criminal Code’s first proper long-player deals
twelve tracks of technical precision matched with brickwall power.
There’s a barbaric impulse festering in the twisted hearts of this
Tacoma threesome, but No Device unfurls with dynamic tact and structural
intricacy, sating its every aggressive urge with surgical attention to
detail. With a stark palette of grizzly grays and off-white stains,
Criminal Code details a singular spectrum of punk both bleak and savage.
Naturally, the hardcore camp digs it because No Device extracts maximal
strength from a few instruments in a minimal amount of time, but taut
brooding snaps into serpentine guitar leads on enough songs for your
death punk beholden to break off a piece. At any rate, Criminal Code
tears down your descriptors and brings its own on No Device. A fiercely
present, assertive album that dictates its own terms, listeners will
find their go-to snappy little tags utterly inadequate and reductive. In
the age of vaguely negative-wave nouveau and post-punk pastiche,
Criminal Code is a colossal outfit casting its own long shadow."
"If music could kill, D.H.K. (Destruccion, Huesos y Kraneos) would have
wiped out half of Lima’s (Peru) Population. This new five-track ep has
all the right ingredients to make a perfect punk/hardcore record,
devastating bass and guitar riffs that ride over chaotic drumbeats and a
ton of fucking spirit. If raw and ugly were drenched in a vat of
Discharge, and MG-15 piss the result would be this." 500 Pressed, comes
in silkscreened covers."
