So it’s been a while (again) since we’ve posted, but we have some pretty cool updates for you. First off, we wanted to announce that one of our favorite labels, Beko Digital Singles, has put out a pretty sweet compilation called “This is What LA Doesn’t Sound Like” that includes a bunch of Kill Shaman bands, friends, and side projects. “This is What LA Doesn’t Sound Like” includes tracks from Night Control, Healthcare (members of Turrks and Night Control), Ger^^an, German Army, and Hiking (ex-Bad Dudes, Turrks, and Silver Daggers guys). Check out the compilation and download it for FREE here. While you’re there, check out some older stuff they did with Night Control, The Feeling of Love, The Dreams, Turrks, etc.
The new LP from the Dreams titled “Morbido” should be here next week. The Dreams are two-piece jungle/tropicalia/reggae/glue wave band from France that play a spaced out, psychedelic mix of dub, reggae, post-punk, and French garage rock. It’s impossible to pin down or classify, but you’ll dance like your inner-stoner was set free into a tropical tiki party where the punks are all hanging out with the masters of reggae and dub, but everyone’s having a good time. Their first LP, “Morbido”, contains an amazing mix of feeling and aesthetics that will instantly appeal to fans of early Rough Trade records, Trojan box sets, or modern Glue Wave French punks. Mastered by Seb Normal of the Normals/The Feeling of Love. Check out the video below for the track “Milk by Myself”:
Lastly, there’s a ton of new stuff we put into the distro store recently. Lots of great stuff from Canada, France, the good ‘ol US, and all over the place. Here’s a solid list:
- J.C. Satan / Vermillion Sands “Split” 7″ – Great 7″ imported from France’s Nasty product. Perfect split between these two awesome rippers, both bands cover Black Sabbath.
- Sharp Ends “Sharp Ends” 7″ – Newest 7″ from our favorite Canadian cold-wavers, imported from Canada. As solid as anything they’ve ever done.
- The Feeling of Love “Young Jesus” 7″ – Great old 7″ from Nasty product in France with TFOL doing a dirty version of “Young Jesus” plus one other jam.
- V/A “Bloodstains Across Alberta” 7″ – Great comp featuring 10 of Alberta’s best. Topless Mongos, Myelin Sheaths, Tension Slips, The Moby Dicks, Grown-Ups, Famines, Fist City, Radians, The Throwaways, Outdoor Miners all limited to 300 copies.
- V/A “Bloodstains Across British Columbia” 7″ – Same schtick as above, except B.C. u Sensae, White Lung, Role Mach, Ahna, Shearing Pinx, Shipyards, Needles//Pins, B-Lines, Manic Attracts, Timecopz, Indian Wars, Yung Mums, Student/Teacher all do a 1-minute jam to fill up this 7″.
- Cop City / Chill Pillars “Held Hostage on Planet Chill” LP – Newest LP from Florida’s Dying, filled with great lo-fi punk from this weird-o named band. Really good.
- The Pupils “S/T” LP – Great debut LP from this snotty Parisian punk band that sounds like they came straight out of ’77.
