New Kill Shaman Releases – Branko, Submissions
The image above says it all. We’ve released a brand new 7″ from a relatively unknown Swedish band, Branko! This instrumental trio plays fuzzed out afro-beat garage space odyssey sickness. Branko bring us a brand new slab of wax with 8 tracks of rock a la Link Wray on a 33RPM 7″. The 7″ includes a digital download card for an additional 9 tracks that are not on the 7″ and are equally impressive (17 tracks in total). Branko play blown out guitars, keyboards, and drums with sprinklings of the Ventures, Troggs, and Link Wray with a punk instrumental spin. Strange sci-fi samples litter the tracks of fuzzy greatness. We haven’t heard anything like this… ever. Hear some tracks from the record on our Soundcloud below.
Submissions is the recording project of two LA mainstays, Bobb Bruno (Goliath Bird Eater, Best Coast) and Paul Kneejie (The Pope, Bipolar Bear, Hiking). Drawing heavily on early industrial and Godflesh influence, Submissions bring back the rumble and doom that has been gone for so long. This is an extremely limited cd that will only be available through Kill Shaman Records store. Limited to 100 copies, professionally printed and replicated… gotta get this one. Hear some tracks for the record below:
We’ve added a lot of new distro since our last update. Here’s a quick recap:
- Ale Mania “A, Who Sings That Beat?” LP – Ale Mania’s debut LP. Pretty stellar guitars/keyboards/junk piles. Recommended.
- Demon’s Claws “Lost in Desert Part Deux” LP – Great LP from these weirdo garage rockers. Already sold out elsewhere, I believe.
- Muscle Drum “Fog Hag” LP – SOOOOO recommended. This is a side project of Bronze members. Insanely good. One of our favorites in a long time.
- The Pink Noise “Gilded Flowers” LP – Another great LP from our friend to the North. Destructive, dirty, and sinful synth-punk.
- V/A “Under the Covers, Volume 2″ LP – Brilliant LP with tons of bands covering Nerves (and other) tracks. Some heavy hitters on this one…
- V/A “WIZZZ!” Volume 1 LP – I was really excited to get this since I loved vol 2 so much. Class 60′s French psychedelia and pop. Long out of print, recently repressed. These have slightly bent corners.
- Yussuf Jerusalem “Blast from the Past” LP – What can I say. These guys are unpredictable. Goes from garagey to metal in 2 seconds. Love.
- Aluminum Knot Eye “Lemon Sessions Singles Club” 7″ – A new slab from Wisconsin’s longest running weird punk group.
- Blowtops “Lemon Sessions Singles Club” 7″ – A band so good Jay Reatard (RIP) not only recorded them, he covered them.
- Gaz Gaz “S/T” 7″ – Here’s a new band from Perpignan (South of France) with SONIC CHICKEN FOUR, LIMINANAS members
- Pope Anything “Witch Tits” 7″ – Quick hit 7″ from awesome punk band Pope Anything. Released on Volar records and is on some snazzy blue-clear vinyl.
- Unnatural Helpers “Lemon Sessions Singles Club” 7″ – Great 7″ from these Seattle noisy popsters.
So here’s our usual other stuff section. If you’ve made it this far, you are indeed a loyal and humane buddy. Thank you. Anyhow, we have some great stuff coming up soon including some records from Yves Son Ace (Factums, Love Tan member), Crash Normal (Parisian punks), and many, many other surprises. Also, get your hands on one of those copies of The Dreams “Morbido” LP. We’re running somewhat short.
Lastly, we’ll be “out of the office” for the next two weeks. Feel free to place order and we’ll ship them immediately after returning from our glorious conquest of foreign lands. Thanks for being patient.
