Sexdrome - On What Draw

Sexdrome - On What Draw

By now you should recognize this name after that amazing LP on Youth Attack. Unfortunately their new LP was scraped since they broke up, but luckily these 3 songs surfaced on a tape from Posh Isolation. I really like this though, they have the whole blown out punk thing down. RIP.

Column Of Heaven - Romance

Column Of Heaven - Romance

New release from Toronto based noise/power violence act Column Of Heaven. This release is a bit more on the noise/sound collage thing they've been doing lately, very similar to the 7" they just put out on Iron Lung. I'm not sure if I like it as much as the PV stuff they did on the Mission From God lp, and obviously The Endless Blockade, but it's a refreshing change of pace. Seeing these guys earlier this year in LA was awesome.

Peacebreakers - Every Day Battle

Peacebreakers - Every Day Battle

Boston hardcore rules 2013. 6 no frills rippers. Members of Boston Strangler, Waste Management, Bloodkrow Butcher, and every other band. I thought this was supposed to come out over the summer but I guess not, I picked it up last night at the Boston Strangler, Waste Management, Mercy Killings gig but they might have had these at that fest in Toronto? Regardless this is so good, definitely one of the best 7"s to come out this year. Pick this up once it becomes widely available and come to Shaun's gig on the 20th.

Already Dead - Fight To Live

Already Dead - Fight To Live
self released

Another tape from Denver, seems to be a lot of hype in that place on new projects, especially with Youth Attack. I think I posted the first tape of Already Dead's. It's like that - very lo-fi, bass heavy, disgusting sounding, but I like this better. I was pretty on the fence about this one until I had to flip the tape over to listen to the 3rd track, absolutely made the release. The tempo crawls to that bass riff, and the vocals on it are so good. The first two songs are decent enough. Very interesting release though, hopefully we hear more from this band soon.

Clementine Vulgate - Ibi Cubavit Lamia

Clementine Vulgate - Ibi Cubavit Lamia
Blutige Magie

15 minutes of dark, synthy, fuzzy, ambient music from this unknown project. It sounds like being in a cave with static from a tape. This is probably the best thing I got from Youth Attack this time around, call me a fan. Great packaging too! I don't know anything about the new label that put this out, Blutige Magie, but they have me sold. I don't think this was available anywhere else besides Youth Attack.

City Hunter - City Hunter

City Hunter - City Hunter

A quick 3 minute demo from Denver based City Hunter. Awesome packaging and not a lot of music. It's very blown out and the riffs are heavy, would mosh.
