Store Update: Jawbox, Dead Meadow

03.20.15

Jawbox - My Scrapbook of Fatal Accidents

Originally released on CD by DeSoto in 1998, My Scrapbook of Fatal Accidents gathers a number of hard to find odds and sods recorded throughout Jawbox’s eight-year existence. The collection has now been pressed to vinyl for the first time ever by Germany's Arctic Rodeo Recordings as a purple-swirl colored double LP. The track list includes the band's 1994 Peel Session as well as previously unreleased studio recordings, four songs drawn from a live set taped at HFStival in 1996, and a number of covers. There’s a few extras in there, too: a CD version of the album and two large booklets with never before seen photos and a complete list of Jawbox's performances.

Dead Meadow - Peel Sessions

Recorded in 2000 in Arlington, VA, Dead Meadow's six-song Peel Session is among the only session recordings that the much-loved radio presenter allowed to be taped outside of the UK (at the time, the band had no money to travel abroad). This record also includes demo takes of "Golden Cloud" and "White Worm" which recorded around the same time, though in a different session. It’s worth picking up for the fairly epic take of “Indian Bones” alone, though.

Store Update: Daniel Higgs, Young Trynas

02.12.15

Daniel Higgs - The Book of Antennae

This pocket-size volume collects a number of poems and written works by Lungfish vocalist, Daniel Higgs. Self-published in a limited edition during the early ’00s and long since out-of-print, the book has now been reissued by Chicago-based imprint Featherproof Books. From the publisher: “[The book] rewards repeated readings by revealing the Language of Nature, The Nature of Spirit, The Spirit of Science, The Science of Love, The Love of The Occult, and The Occult of Language.”

Young Trynas - Probably Music

Five songs by Baltimore, MD based punk/hardcorre outfit, Young Trynas. Originally released on cassette in an extremely limited edition, White Denim has reissued this record as a 7" single. Features Taylor Mulitz of Washington, DC's Priests on vocals and guitar. You can preview this release here.

Store Update: The Make-Up, The Gotobeds, Thee Goochi Boiz

01.08.15

The Make Up - Sound Verite

The Make Up’s second full-length LP, recorded by Calvin Johnson at Dub Narcotic Studio during a brief stop-over in Olympia, WA in 1996. Sound Verite finds the band in a raw and spontaneous mindset, with all songs having been composed on the spot. Includes unstoppable classics, “Make Up Is Lies” and “Hot Coals.” “Turn on to the idea of Sound Verite and understand that the struggle of culture vs. Make-Up is the struggle vs. Destiny. The struggle to stop history itself,” writes K Records, refusing to understate the record’s significance.

The Gotobeds - Poor People Are Revolting

The debut full-length from Pittsburgh, PA quartet, The Gotobeds. Excellent post-punk tunes that take some general inspiration from Wire, The Fall, and Wipers as well as contemporary heavies like Tyvek and Total Control. Originally released on LP by 12XU, this cassette version has been made available via Accidental Guest Recordings. Recommended.

Thee Goochi Boiz - Oops/Fast Food For the Teenage Soul

This LP compiles the first two records from Boulder, Colorado garage rock outfit, Thee Goochi Boiz. Fine skuzzy and snotty lo-fi pop. Both releases were previously available only on cassette via Burger Records.

Store Update: Two Inch Astronaut, Zomes, Grave Walks

12.10.14

Two Inch Astronaut - Foulbrood

The first proper full-length from Silver Spring, Maryland trio, Two Inch Astronaut. Ten songs that sometimes recall the sounds of DC-area bands like Bluetip and Shudder to Think, but that also possess a slightly skewed melodic sensibility that transcends those influences. Stream this LP here. Recommended.

Zomes - Variations Vol. 1

This is a vinyl reissue of Variations Vol. 1, a collection of improvised organ pieces by Lungfish guitarist Asa Osborne that was originally released on cassette in 2012 by Imminent Frequencies. Deeply meditative and stripped down, it’s some of Asa’s finest work under the Zomes name. Limited edition of 300 copies on white vinyl.

Grave Walks - She’s a Suicide

A one-off collaboration between Swami Records alumni Dan Sartain and Jacob Turnbloom (of San Diego psych-pop outfit, Mrs. Magician). Two gloomy garage-pop tunes that take inspiration from ’50s b-movies and horror flicks.

Store Update: Ancient VVisdom, Wormwood, Beastmilk

10.24.14

Ancient VVisdom - Sacrificial

The third full-length from Cleveland, Ohio-based death-rock ensemble, Ancient VVisdom. On Sacrificial, the band backs away from the occult-folk style that guided its previous effort and embraces the sound of ’80s heavy metal.

Beastmilk - White Stains on Black Wax

A re-issue of a three-song single by Finnish outfit, Beastmilk. Music that takes influence from early ’80s post-punk acts like Bauhaus and Joy Division. Originally released on vinyl in 2011 by the Finnish label, Svart.

Wormwood - S/t

The full-length debut from Boston-based sludge/doom ensemble, Wormwood (which features members of Doomriders). Dark and intense reverb-soaked music that was recorded, mixed, and mastered 100% analog.






Store Update: Roomrunner, Jail Solidarity

10.20.14

Roomrunner - Separate

Six new songs from Baltimore-based quartet, Roomrunner. Recorded with J Robbins (Jawbox, Burning Airlines), these songs find the band taking up a more collaborative approach to songwriting and shifting toward a more overtly melodic sound. It’s still plenty heavy, though. Recommended. You can preview the songs here.

Jail Solidarity - Pretty Good Privacy

The second cassette EP from Washington, DC-based trio, Jail Solidarity. Four slow, and sludgy songs featuring former members of D.C.-based outfits Body Cop and Mary Christ.

Store Update: The Ar-Kaics, Brief Weeds, Paint Branch, The Make-Up

09.02.14

Brief Weeds - Songs of Innocence and Experience

Brief Weeds was a project formed by Guy Picciotto, Brendan Canty, Michael Hampton, and Eddie Janney. This four-song single was the band’s second released and was released by K Records in 1993, but the music was recorded earlier, during the late ’80s. Though all four performed together in either Rites of Spring or One Last Wish, Brief Weeds was a very different type of thing – spontaneous home recorded music that was heavily informed by ’60s psychedelic pop.

Paint Branch - I Wanna Live

After a series of production delays, Paint Branch’s debut album I Wanna Live -- which was released digitally last year -- is finally available on LP. The record reunites Chris Richards and John Davis, both formerly of Q and Not U, for 11 vocal harmony-heavy and acoustic guitar-driven songs. Recorded by Chad Clark, of Beauty Pill, and limited to 200 copies courtesy of Cricket Cemetery Records.

The Ar-Kaics - S/t

The full-length debut LP from Richmond, VA trio, The Ar-Kaics. Thirteen excellently executed and slightly spaced-out garage-rock songs that stand up alongside the deepest Pebbles and Nuggets cuts. Features members of The Shirks

The Make Up - Save Yourself

The Make-Up’s fourth studio album. Originally released in 1999, it’s now back in print on LP via K Records. Includes much-loved songs like, “C’mon, Let’s Spawn” and “I Am Pentagon.”
