INDIE/POP-ROCK. [RELEASEDATE 30.11.2017] Started as the recording project, Easthampton's KINDLING evolved into a full-fledged band through a full-length and a prolific series of releases that would hone their dreamy, lo-fi beginnings into a muscular wall of sound. While much of KINDLING's work could be given the shoegaze tag, the band always hinted at something broader and more immediate amongst the fuzz. Though, for a band whose sound is so firmly rooted in loud guitars, KINDLING is an expert at knowing when to pull back the volume, allowing for truly powerful dynamics in their music. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.

HARDCORE. The world of hardcore is renowned for the preservation of its own history. The history has been well-documented in records that have all been reissued, websites devoted to its preservation, an oral history that has been passed down through generations of show-goers, and now, through books that explore even the most minute and obscure details of underground hardcore culture. This book documents an incredibly important aspect of hardcore's culture that has, until now, not been documented in any print format: hardcore band t-shirts through the diligent collecting and cataloging of hardcore enthusiast Orhun Öner. The 200 pages of "life. love. shirts.: a collection of hardcore clothing" features the colorful t-shirts that were bought and sold in the sweaty clubs of the '80s and '90s, many of which are extremely rare and fetch astronomical sums on the collector's market. Many of the shirt photos are accompanied by stories from the bands, labels, and those who had a hand in the production and distribution, a glimpse of the rich tradition of hardcore band t-shirt production that continues on to this day.
