    ACRYLICS

    Sinking In

    [engl]  Santa Rosa's best band has done something important, vital and oh so real. At it's core "Sinking In" is a frustrated reflective hardcore punk album tackling the struggles and conditions of the ever ripening world we live in. But there is a deeper vein of humanity, cooperation and hope at work here. They've always had a clear message of inclusivity, fun and forward thinking at their shows but to finally have that tangible ethos hit us in our homes, when we need it most, is a wonderful bit of fortune. And timing, damn. We are so excited to finally share this album with you. It's been quite the journey... The first pressing of this is 300 black, 150 white and 50 silver veined vinyl housed in a 24pt reverse board sleeve with poster, 20 page booklet and download card included. Recorded and mastered by Andrew Oswald. Artwork and everything visual by J. Party.

    All Hits

    Men And Their Work

    [engl] After a head warping intro "Men And Their Work" kicks into eight driving postpunk rockers full of angst, confidence, feminism, melody, grit and a sense of direction not commonly found in a debut album. Shit, most seasoned bands don't even make albums this coherent. It's a smart moniker as ALL HITS certainly lives up to the promise. There is a 60/40 split of familiar comfort and provocative mystery inherent in every song. You get shouted sloganeering backed with barbed melody and finessed power-ups massaged into the sweetest spots. We can't put our finger on exactly what it is that makes this record so special but whatever it is there is a lot of it. Destined to be a modern classic. Destined to be a modern classic. So much so, that Rough Trade has deemed it their "Record of the Week" for June 26th. Lovely. 300 black, 100 translucent smoky blue and 100 coke bottle clear (a Rough Trade exclusive color) 150gr copies housed in a 24pt reverse board jacket with lyrics insert and download card included.

    BACZKOWSKI / PADMANABHA

    Mastoid Process

    [engl]  "Since John Coltrane and Rashied Ali created "Interstellar Space" with only sax and percussion, opening through this limited line-up new realms of expression, often raw, hard, yet incredibly direct and open, many have seen the opportunities it offered and followed their example. Playing in a trio format is for many already a tough task, but relinquishing the typical role of the bass as melodic and rhythmic anchor point, offers a total freedom of interaction, but it's like poetry without rhyme, there is no comfort zone to fall back into, no safe haven, no safety net, it's swim or drown. Without technical mastery, creativity and close listening skills, it's hard to create anything meaningful at all." -freejazzblog.org Steve and Ravi are indeed true masters of the hive minded sonic attack. Swirling madness and whispered genius. I've seen it live and I can attest, it is incredible. Like the other singles in series 3, there are 300 copies on black vinyl with hand stamped labels housed in a hand stamped j-card sleeve. A one-time pressing.

    C.H.E.W.

    In Due Time

    [engl] Uncompromising hardcore punk from the bricked bowels of Chicago. "In Due Time" is five ridiculously tight songs of flawlessly executed frenzy with a hint of winter snot that we couldn't be more stoked about. We thought the "Feeding Frenzy" LP was good but damn, this is pure madness. C.H.E.W. is really a force of nature. Please see them, my words will never do them justice. 150 copies on baby blue and 350 copies on black 75gr 7" vinyl housed in a 12pt reverse board custom diecut sleeve with insert and download card included. Recorded by Russell Harrison and Seth Engel. Mastered by Will Killingsworth

    CONDITION

    Actual Hell

    [engl] Big as a pig and vicious as hell. The torturous maelstrom sounds of bone breaks and thuggish isolationism. Howling feedback underscores the massive swirling riffs and relentless battery of drums. Foul, tumultuous vocals made entirely of the final exhalations of humanity really send this opus to the apex. A perfect band. For those unfamiliar, CØNDITIØN are a raging south Californian corpse-beat unit more akin to the likes of BASTARD than DISCHARGE. Fucking heavy. We couldn't be more excited about this LP. 800 copies on black vinyl come housed in a heavy duty tip-on jacket featuring art by Matthew Adis complimented nicely by a 24x36 poster insert with art by Abe Social & Madison East.

    The Psychic Hologram

    [engl]  The mutilated guitar buzz, hissing vocal fury, Cyberdyne Systems drum processors and brooding atmospheric tekno are a powerful commixture brought to light through the channel of industrial noise punk so we can all start to free the body from the mind. 'The Psychic Hologram' is a mirror, a magnifying glass, a surgical kit and guidebook for self-liberation. Its freedom from flesh. Freedom from violence. Freedom from expectation. Freedom from "them". Us for us by us. 500 copies of 150gr vinyl housed in a 24pt reverse board jacket with 11x22 double sided poster and download card included. Art by Sainte-X. Sound by Capt. Tripps.

Reminiscent of S.D.S., GLORIOUS? or PHYSIQUE. Reykjavík punks have the fucking fire right now so stand close and feel the heat. Greenland must be fully melted away by now because D7Y is way too blazing to ignore. 350 printed inner sleeved copies of 150gr black vinyl, 150 on green, housed in a 24pt reverse board jacket with download card included.

    DEFECT PLAY

    Defect Play

    [engl] Their self titled debut, which consists of four caustic dekompositions, is a bleak and industrial thing filled of layered percussion, wild power electronics, masked vocals and hostile guitars. It starts with sharp stabbing loops and almost jump scares in the first track, moves to a throbbing dystopian rhythm, anxiety builds to climax and teases release by the end of the side. The flip slowly creeps back down to the uncertain hell that we started in. A constant nightmare. A continual circuit exposing issues of imperfection, overstimulation and misrepresentation. This is unpleasant musick. 300 copies of 150gr translucent red vinyl housed in a 24pt reverse board jacket with an 8 page booklet and download card included. All art, recording and mixing by DEFECT PLAY. Mastering by Will Killingsworth.

    DOLDREY

    Invocation Of Doom

    [engl] After a scorching demo in 2018, Singapore's DOLDREY have seen fit to unleash a hellish alchemical concoction of scraping hardcore and HM2 death metal riffs over a whiplash of pogoed out D-beats. Imagine CARNAGE covering S.H.I.T./ZOUO songs with the creepy crawl parts from HOAX or DARKTHRONE's slower tunes. Suffice it to say that it is hard punk for metalers AND street tough metal for punks. Classic styles combined to make modern sounds. Sick. 500 copies on black vinyl with an etched B-side housed in a 24pt reverse board jacket with insert and download card included. Recorded by Izzad Radzali Shah. Mastered at Mammoth Sound. Art by Necrofrost.

It navigates this space and the tension of being pulled in opposite directions – the binary of life: past/future, optimism/pessimism, acceptance/denial, confusion/clarity.

    FALSE BROTHER

    Uncanny Valley

    [engl]  Slow cooked gloomy post punk from the outer realms of the midwestern United States. Nine shuffling stabs of icy bleakness about the fog of existence, psychic waste and drifting aimless in the vein of DIÄT or some of the more brooding TOTAL CONTROL stuff carefully assembled over the last 4 years. We are pleased to welcome FALSE BROTHER to the only format that matters. 300 copies of 150gr black vinyl housed in a heavy duty 24pt jacket with hand made zine, poster and download card included. Recorded and mastered by False Brother. All art by False Brother. Dedicated to Mark Fisher - long live KPunk.

    The Wild Animals In My Life

    [engl]  "It’s not often that fuzzed-out C86 jangle and brash queercore find common musical ground, Flesh World's inception focused less on their other bands (Limp Wrist, Needles and Brilliant Colors), and more on their mutual love for drag shows and punk gigs, as their vision took form in the under dwellings of San Francisco’s DIY scene." -Max Mohenu/Pitchfork. The Wild Animals In My Life is the first full album and second 12" sized record for this incredible reverb swarm. Knowing and growing from the past unto now, power is the underlying draw here. Lulled by the fist/pummeled by the euphoria. Hearty black vinyl in a heavyweight full color jacket with a poster insert even.

    [engl] From humble beginnings as a do-everything-yourself-because-people-aren't-ready-for-your-vision-yet basement rapper in "The Biggest Little City" (the underground of the underground) comes the rarified and clarified aural juggernaut known as FRKSE. Using a combination of tape loops, power electronics, sampled sounds, synths and some other stress inducing mysteries, FRKSE has found a unique place in the universe. A turbulent plane nestled somewhere between chattering industrial clamor and automatous world meditation. "Desecration Anxiety II" further projects visions of a tormented nirvana beyond the light of consciousness, an uncertain stillness. 300 copies of 150gr black vinyl housed in a 24pt reverse board jacket with insert and download card (though there are vinyl only tracks that are not included in the download). Artwork based on "Desecration Anxiety I" created by DAS/Auris Apothecary. Photography by Reid Haithcock. Mastered by April Golden.

A single take recorded and processed through a myriad of hardware, software and NASA grade firmware 100% live and on the spot September 7th 2018 in Buffalo NY. 'Popped Music' is an untamed atmospheric obelisk of nightmarish scratching, serene melancholia and brisk paranoic tension reminiscent of a more deconstructed version of Gil Mellé's original electronic soundtrack to the Andromeda Strain.

Where would we all be without a couple fuzz pedals? Probably listening to Vivaldi or something refined. No thanks.

The pure scrap of this trio is infectious and exciting. And for what it's worth, "Nadie Es Especial" is gonna be the song of the summer for sure. Something about that opening bass riff and the overall foreboding vibe of that track that keeps me coming back for more more more. 500 copies of 150gr black vinyl with an elaborately etched B-side housed in a painstakingly collaged 24pt reverse board jacket with lyric insert and download card included.

Equal parts joy and rage, classically influenced but originally executed, circle pits and 12 strings, d-beats and Hammond organs, fist fights and tambourine breaks, angry and aggressive while thought provoking and danceable. Is it hardcore or punk, OR hardcore and punk? That’s the one dichotomy you’ll have to figure out. Black Liberation Now and Forever. 500 copies on black vinyl housed in a spot varnished black on black 24pt jacket with poster insert, sticker and download card included.
