waiting to inhale (2005/UNREST/REGURGITATED SEMEN)
GRINDCORE. POSER DISPOSER are a crossover grind outfit from Saskatoon featuring Mike and Kramer from DFA. They band takes their BEYOND POSESSION style of sound and sets it on overdrive with hyper blast beats. The music is also pretty rad. Screamed vocals over rapid beats, crude guitars and harsh melodies, a.k.a. rough and thrashy grinding, at times, hardcore punk. Yeah, this Canadian three-piece, has successfully found their way to my heart - through my ears, ripping shit up on the way.
no hardcore (2008/HEADCOUNT)
HARDCORE. Michigan's POSITIVE NOISE play fast, thrashy hardcore, in the vein of LÄRM and early VITAMIN X. This debut 7" comes with hand-silk screened and spraypainted covers. Featuring Ryan of I OBJECT and Punks Before Profits Records owner on vocals.
POSITIVE NOISE / XTRA VOMIT
HARDCORE. POSITIVE NOISE blazes through with thick heavy hardcore and a never give up attitude. XTRA VOMIT now has a live drummer and you are not ready for what happened. Pained lyrics struggling to find hope and meaning rage over grinding never-let-up hardcore. A heavier OTTAWA or JIHAD might be a good starting point. This release is screenprinted on hand cut waste paper.
Beyond the gates/the eyes of horror (2008/BACK ON BLACK)
DEATH-METAL. Two of the godfathers of death-metal's greatest records reissued on limited double vinyl! Formed in 1983 in El Sobrante, California POSSESSED are noted for their fast playing style and Jeff Becerra's guttural vocals. POSSESSED have been cited as a great influence on the death-metal genre. This is a major classic of the period when bay-area thrash-metal was morphing into death-metal - this is just a extrem heavy album, filled with evil riffs, great songs, incredible vocals, extremely cool solos. If youre into death-metal dont missed this one!
POSSESSED BY PAUL JAMES
cold and blind (2008/VOODOO RHYTHM)
BLUES-PUNK. From the swampy depths of the Floridian Everglades comes bluegrass blues-punk Konrad Wert aka POSSESSED BY PAUL JAMES. Bearing that name in honour of his father and grandfather and armed with nothing but fiddle, banjo, guitar and a battered suitcase POSSESSED BY PAUL JAMES sings, growls and hollers songs of love and loss and exorcises his demons. To the contrary, his raw and desperate sound is the ideal soundtrack for uncertain times where questions outweigh the answers - a shot of untarnished wild human emotion to soothe our aching souls.
HARDCORE-PUNK. A brand new 32 song LP from this raging hardcore-punk band from Poland! On their 3rd full-length release, POST REGIMENT from Poland pay tribute to the old polish punk band "Tragiedia" and take their already unique and grabbing style of political punk even further - they're playing faster and with more aggression. This is a tough sound to describe because they play in a fast, driving way that makes you feel like you're wired to fuck on caffeine - makes you feel like you're going mad! The dual female/male work well together, singing fast and urgent. There's even some synthesizer bits thrown in that totally add to the sound. Top-notch packaging with great use of full-color art make a strong presentation and bring out the intensity of the lyrics.
the heat (2012/NO IDEA)

POSTAL SERVICE, THE
give up (2013/SUB POP)
INDIE/ELECTRO-POP. It's been 10 years since the little project that could from Seattelite Ben Gibbard (aka DEATH CAB FOR CUTIE's frontman) and Angeleno Jimmy Tamborello (DNTEL, FIGURINE) emerged from seemingly nowhere and began to burrow into the ears of anyone who came into contact with the band's infectious electro-pop. To celebrate, Sub Pop is reissuing THE POSTAL SERVICE's sole album and including in the multidisc set 15 bonus tracks, including 2 brand new songs. Vinyl comes in a deluxe hardcover and includes a digital download card.
POTBELLY / DREADFUL CHILDREN
HARDCORE/PUNK-ROCK. Washington State's legendary POTBELLY spit out 2 cuts of thrashy crossover hardcore in the vein of end'80s mongers. If you like their split with THE ACCÜSED you'll love those tunes too. DREADFULL CHILDREN from Seatle deserve their straight ahead punk-rock with , political lyrics.
sun damage (2012/FEEBLE MINDS)
POST-PUNK. Infectious indie-punk hybrid from the valley of Western Massachusetts.

You'll get 6 tracks in just 14min..
POUND FOR POUND
common crooks (2007/SURPRISE ATTACK)
HARDCORE. From Springfield, POUND FOR POUND follow up their Surprise Attack debut with these 3 new tracks. Fast old NY hardcore with plenty of punch when it comes to slowing things down. After the success of their CD "'for our fallen brothers" the boys went back into the studio to capture more of their depression, angst, and distrust for the world & police. This record isn't pretty and it wasn't meant to be. For fans of 100 DEMONS, SKARHEAD and BREAKDOWN or any fan of brutal and merciless hardcore.
POUND FOR POUND
For our fallen brothers (2006/SURPRISE ATTACK)

got your back (2011/FAT WRECK CHORDS)
PUNK/MELODYCORE. On POUR HABIT's sophomore effort, they attempt to harness the intensity of their raucous live sound, with blazing guitars, furious bass lines, tight pummeling percussion and soulful energetic melodies. "got your back" is a palpable reflection of the band's influences; STRUNG OUT, PENNYWISE and BAD BRAINS. All of which are fit perfectly into an album that runs the topical gamut from politics to partying.
POVERTY BAY SAINTS
s/t (2008/ORGANIZED CRIME)
HARDCORE-PUNK. In a world where punks, skins and hardcore kids are increasingly separate entities and unity is a long forgotten ideal, POVERTY BAY SAINTS is a wrecking ball obliterating the walls of separation and schism. Drawing influence from bands like BLITZ and the 4-SKINS as much as WARZONE, this Seattle 5-piece invokes visions of all the old NYHC artwork where skins, straight-edge and punks are all smashing the shit out of each other and loving every second of it. Though POVERTY BAY SAINTS consists mainly of members and alumni of CHAMPION, LAHAR and GRAVE MAKER. 7" comes with free MP3 download.
