Kill Shaman is proud to release two new records, one from Canada’s Sharp Ends and one from Italy’s Movie Star Junkies. Details below, tracks from each album available for listening at killshaman.com.
Calgary, Canada’s Sharp Ends have released their first LP on our very own Kill Shaman. After two amazing 7″s that moved at light speed on Hozac and Mammoth Cave, Sharp Ends spent the next 9 months writing and recording the 10 tracks that have been lovingly smashed into wax for this fine release. The LP contains some of the finest post-punk weirdness that we’ve ever heard, channelling bits of 80′s British No Wave and colliding it with a Dischord-like agressive aesthetic, Sharp Ends have a real winner here. Recordeed by Ryan Sadler, mixed by the band, and mastered by Gabe Dudes; these 10 tracks will blow out your eardrums. Limited to 500 copies on black vinyl only, 45 RPM.
1. Goodbye to Berlin
2. The Other Door
3. Mother Squid
5. Senseless Feeling
6. Live Action
8. Signal Hill
9. Teenage Warfare
It’s not often that one comes across a band as original and experienced as Movie Star Junkies. Kill Shaman have been fans of the band since we first heard early releases on AVANT! and their split with fellow KS band, The Feeling of Love. Mixing some sort of Italian spaghetti western aesthetic with goth, post-punk, and the volume and stage presence of the best garage bands, Movie Star Junkies have shared a sweet little 4-song 10″ EP with us. The album is 100% black vinyl, limited to 500 copies and comes with beautiful packaging, including upgraded 10″ stock and a beautiful printed inner-sleeve complete with lyrics and creepy artwork (hence the price tag). For fans of Nick Cave, Dog-Faced Hermans, and any of the other Le Grande Triple Alliance bands. Note for European customers: This 10″ is available on Ghost Records in Italy. Get it there.
1. Loneliness Like Clouds Above (3:21)
2. Twice Upon a Time (3:28)
3. Odyssey of Jason (3:24)
4. Death, Silence, and Sleep (2:55)
