wildlife (2012/NO SLEEP)
POST-HARDCORE. LA DISPUTE's "wildlife", is a nearly 60min. musical examination of the twentysomething search for purpose - an exploration of the struggles that confront, damage and redefine us inevitably in life through 14 tracks of new material. LA DISPUTE's sophomore full-length organically captures the sound of 5 friends committed to pushing their own creative boundaries while still retaining a desire to create honest and emotional music. New pressing now available on yellow cream vinyl with a gatefold-cover.
Aussi long sera le chemin (2002/SKULD)
ANARCHO-PUNK. The title translates into: "however long it takes". This is their 2nd album and it was really worth the wait. Raging straightforward fast and melodic punk with some of the best female vocals you can come across!! The style of singing reminds a lot of this typical french "chanson-style" singing. Nothing really changed, but the production is more powerful than on their last already outstanding release. Comes in a nice 4-coloured sleeve with a 4 coloured booklet - lyrix are translated in english for those who are not familiar with french.
la vie revee (2006/MALOKA)
ANARCHO-PUNK. This is their 3rd full-length and it was really worth the wait. Energetic and raging punk with catchy and melodic parts, nice female vocals with that outstanding typical french "chanson-style" singing. The personal and political lyrics are well written, too. Nothing really changed, but the production of the 10 new tracks is more powerful than on their last already outstanding releases. Soon to be a classic album.
LA MISERIA DE TU ROSTRO
jauria (2012/DEPRAVED & DEVILISH/VEGAN)
HARDCORE. Blasting hardcore from Santiago de Chile. As their 1st full-length, this album is a great combination of hardcore, with pissed off dual vocals, metal riffing, neo-crust hints, melody driven energy and high intensity. LA MISERIA DE TU ROSTRO playing crushing end-'90s influenced metallic hardcore like POINT OF NO RETURN, NUEVA ETICA or GATHER and SEVEN GENERATIONS. Limited one-time pressing of 500 colored vinyl.
s/t (2007/AGI PUNK)
HARDCORE. European one-sided picture-disk LP version of their silk-screened one-sided LP on Youth Attack with revisited artwork and 1 additional unreleased track! LA PIOVRA featuring members of Italy's best, L'AMICO DI ;ARTUCCI and OHUZARU. LA PIOVRA's sound can best be described as a frantic cross of early LOS CRUDOS mixed with demo era-JELLY ROLL ROCKHEADS. This masterwork has all the makings of a classic and is sure to redefine your floundering faith in Salvation. Great italian hardcore with tons of rock influences.
These decapitated visions (2005/CHARGED)
D-BEAT HARDCORE/PUNK. Sowohl optisch, wie musikalisch sind die Jungs aus Suedkalifornien stark DISCHARGE-beeinflusst, auch wenn andere englische Einfluesse, wie etwa die von GBH, ebenfalls nicht von der Hand zu weisen sind. Auch produktionstechnisch geht man einen Schritt zurueck, knallt den Gesang und die hallbeladene Sologitarre in den Vordergrund und belaesst alles sehr roh und kratzig. Der verzerrte Bass und das trockene Schlagzeug tun ihr uebriges. Ich denke, man kann sich den Sound vorstellen. Textlich natuerlich ebenfalls sehr kritisch, gegen Krieg, Religion und Gesellschaft, MOTORHEAD wir auch gerne gehoert und die Nieten auf den Jacken sitzen bombenfest. Klingt nach alten Punktagen irgendwo in Schweden.
s/t (2010/FEEL IT)
HARDCORE. Now this is something unique and very cool. LACKEY DIE were the 1st hardcore band from the small city of Charlottesville, Virginia. In 1984 they recorded 6 songs for a 7" and in 1985 they went to the now-famous Inner Ear Studios to record with Don Zientara. This session produced 3 songs for the compilation and several outtakes. For various reasons, the 7" and compilation they recorded for were never released! This 7" contains 8 songs. All songs have been tediously restored and remastered from the original reel-to-reels. This release is fully authorized and is limited to 500 copies with hand-screened sleeves.
nowhere plans (2012/BRUTAL PANDA)
PROGRESSIVE-HARDCORE. Debut release from noisy Philadelphia rockers LADDER DEVILS, featuring members of now-defunct hardcore heroes THE MINOR TIMES. The 1st half features 4 new tracks recorded, while side-b contains their digital only release, "forget english", remastered and available for the 1st time in physical format. These 9 songs will surely fuck your eardrums into submission. Limited to 500 copies.
hole sailor (2009/NO WAY)
PUNK-ROCK. The 2nd 7" from Richmond’s hometown zeroes THE LADIES. "hole sailor" feature 4 songs of great sarcastic punk-rock. For fans of DWARVES, early QUEERS and stuff like that. If you’re into the 1st 7″, you’ll definetly love this one.
six more reasons to hate.. (2010/GRAVE MISTAKE)
PUNK-ROCK. To love THE LADIES is to hate THE LADIES, and here are six more damn fine reasons to do both. On their 4th 7", Richmond's THE LADIES bring blistering tracks of sleazy and infectious punk-rock gems drenched in early DWARVES worship, with a little extra dose of melody mixed in for good measure. Hands down their best release to date, and best looking too. Learn to hate them. 7" includes a MP3 download card.
PUNK-ROCK. "trashed" is the 3rd 7" from THE LADIES. Between the previous released 7"s they recorded this item. This one was the catchier of the 2 7's opted for a more bash and crash faster punk sound like the DWARVES, BULEMICS and ZEKE and this record focused more on the band making more rousing catchy punk tunes. Still in the vein of the tunes the band has done to date - its just got this DICTATORS, DEAD BOYS sort of catchy vibe to it, also comparable to the BRUTAL KNIGHTS.
ELECTRO-POP. LADYTRON release "velocifero", their follow up to "the witching hour". Formed in Britain in 1998, LADYTRON have created a sound that is icy yet hot, poppy but sardonic and melancholy. On "velocifero", their 4th studio album, LADYTRON continue their '80s noise revival and rockier sound they began to experiment with on 2005’s "the witching hour". This time around they add more noise with hints of '90s era DEPECHE MODE, especially on lead track “black cat”.
i think my older brother used to listen to lagwagon (2008/FAT WRECK)
MELODYCORE/PUNK. Despite being Fat's longest-tenured band, LAGWAGON maintain a sense of humor about their enviable longevity with the title of "I think my older brother used to listen to LAG WAGON, but the content of the 7 track album is anything but laughable. Never satisfied to rest on their laurels or bask in the glory of past achievements, LAG WAGON once again push the boundaries of genres formerly used to define them. Vinyl version includes a bonus CD of the full album.
double plaidinum (2011/FAT WRECK)
