KSR54: CRASH NORMAL “YOUR BODY GOT A LAND” LP

We like the number 2… Paris’ Crash Normal are somewhere between garage-punk and electro trash. They are a duo. These guys drop the sound of rusty nails and hit the audience like rain. Echos and reverbs fight, the drum machine gets killed by the fuzz pedal. Low frequencies slither around you like a snake. No bass player. Only two guitars to fill the space left in the room. Real drums win the battle over drum machines in the end. They’ve shared the bill with Sic alps, The Intelligence, Alan Vega, Ty Segall, The Mayyors, The Spits, Kid congo, Davila 666, BBQ, Wounded Lion, Human Eyes, the Cave, and Crystal Stilts. Euro customers can pick this up from Born Bad Records. Check out a sample track here. Click the image above to purchase.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

KSR53: YVES/SON/ACE “UNSUNG” 7″

Yves/Son/Ace is the solo project of Matthew Ford (Factums, Love Tan, Evening Meetings). He makes apocalyptic pop music with fuzzy, gnarled, overblown, and mangled instruments. Noises range from guitars and pianos to hammers and mallets. Industrial garage pop… or something. 6-song 7″ EP with high-quality jackets, black sleeves, and some tits. Highly recommend.

KSR51: THE DREAMS “MORBIDO” LP / MP3

We’re proud to announce the repress of the debut LP from France’s The Dreams. Members of Le Grande Tripple Alliance, 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, and 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. Limited to 300 copies on black vinyl. Click the image above to purchase.

New distro We’ve added a lot of new distro since our last update. Here’s a quick recap:

LP’s:

  • Black Mamba Beat “S/T” LP- Long awaited debut full length for this London-based South African trio, featuring mr Stix of Black Time fame.
  • Bobsleigh Baby “S/T” LP – My Bloody Valentine meets Country Teasers, with a touch of Morriconesque atmospheres, by 2 guys and 2 gals based in Rome, Italy.
  • Capputtini ‘i lignu “S/T” LP – For those who have been wondering what the fuzz on this French Sicilian duo was all about, now it’s the time to fully satisfy your unquenchable desire for raucous, primitive, traditional-yet-hypnotic “blues with a twist”.
  • Destination Lonely “Kiss or Kicks” LP – Destination Lonely is a new French all-star band from Bordeaux, Perpignan and Paris/Québec with Marco and Vince from The Fatals, Complications or Bobpopkiller back together with the help from the Polar Strong and Hoodlum drummer.
  • Intellectuals “In the Middle of Darkwhere” LP – The fourth LP by one of the longest-living punk bands in Rome. This one is the darkest, as the title suggests; an ode to the political and cultural decadence currently swallowing the Mediterranean.
