RSR PC 051 Tapes! Tapes! Tapes! 9 Tapes! 8 Bands! Out Today!

As you may know Redscroll also releases music from time to time by bands / projects we enjoy from the surrounding area. (If you’re not familiar here’s our Discogs page for the label and its releases.) We wanted to keep that up this year and in the current climate of long wait times for vinyl pressing we had the idea to do a cassette project. SURPRISE! We’ve got 9 (NINE!) cassette tape releases, 8 Bands. All killer, no filler! OUT TODAY and SHIPPING NOW! Each tape is professionally duplicated in an edition of 50 so get ’em while the gettin’ is good!

All of these tapes are available on our Big Cartel page:
https://redscrollrecords.bigcartel.com/

Listen to us talk about it on a short podcast episode and hear some short clips of the bands. Check out the write-ups below and click their links for further deep dives. A lot of these folks have been on our podcast too so please do check those out if you are so inclined!

[RSR-027] Afghan Haze “Nihilistic Stoner Hymns”
https://afghanhaze.bandcamp.com/album/nihilistic-stoner-hymns
Cassette version of their sold out 2020 LP. Stoner doom from the woods of CT.

“Afghan Haze are never going to be the band that creates uplifting and soulful grooves as this album’s heart is Pitch Black but there is a lot of cool Psychedelic and Progressive riffs that can be heard from the excellent opening song – Burn The Ghost. A winning combination of slow-paced riffs and warped ideas that allow Afghan Haze create an almost “NOLA” style of music especially towards the later stages of the song.

Overall, Nihilistic Stoner Hymns is a thrilling and superbly well made record that will entertain you throughout the bleak Winter Months of 2021.” – Outlaw of the Sun blog

[RIP Randall]

[RSR-029] Kidnapped “Nowhere Is Sterile”
https://kidnappedpv.bandcamp.com/album/nowhere-is-sterile
Previously released as a limited 7” by Larry Records/Mangoe Records. This is our 2nd release with CT’s premier power-violence band.

Catch them touring with Livid from March 4th-17th and later in March playing the Webster in Hartford on the 25th with Integrity and Full of Hell.

“Kidnapped have been an “if you know, you know” band since their first demo in 2017, and while in some ways the world is finally turning to notice the powerviolence golem lurking around Connecticut, it is more like that golem grabbed the hardcore world by the lapels and headbutted it in the nose. If you aren’t listening to Kidnapped, you haven’t been paying attention.

With a quartet of musicians this skillful and this good at communicating with one another, the complicated changes in tempo and style and the ingenious dissolution of genre borders feel totally natural. Aggressive fastcore blasts give way to some of the grooviest, in-the-pocket breakdowns of the year, only to shift to old school death metal and again to thrashcore. This band makes the impossible seem easy.” – Cvlt Nation (Top 10 Grindcore Releases of 2021)

[RSR-030] Intercourse “Rule 36”
https://intercourse.bandcamp.com/album/rule-36
We had been trying to release something by Mineva for a few years, but as that band dissolved and half the band went on to be in Intercourse this seems to be the culmination of that path. Renowned for incendiary live shows and ferocious stage presence, Intercourse carve a singular niche within New England’s outsider (re: noise rock) hardcore scene. Forthcoming LP version on Reptilian Records.

“Sonically it is offensive to any self-respecting Christian household” -Shinygremonotone

“To the question “Fave Track” I had initially written “Impossible question, fuck right off” as a working title, because every single song, a banger.” -Abbie Bateman, Boston Hassle

“Rule 36 is a twenty-minute cotton shot of deranged noise rock.” -From Corners Unknown

“for people willing to go beyond the typical, they exist to surprise and delight those weirdos looking for a hardcore band that take a different approach.” -New Noise Magazine

[RSR-031] Tongue Depressor “Tilting Irons”
https://tonguedepressor.bandcamp.com/
This is our 2nd release with Tongue Depressor. The LP we released last year sold out and was mentioned in a nice batch of year end “best of” lists.

They’re quite prolific together and apart and have had an incredible string of releases including this one. Instrumentation on this one include: bells, cello, resonator, lap steel, double bass and tapes.

[RSR-025CS] Chained to the Bottom of the Ocean “The Vestige”
https://chainedtothebottomoftheocean.bandcamp.com/album/the-vestige

Cassette version of the collection of early out-of-print material we released as a double LP in 2020.

“Chained to the Bottom of the Ocean is the heaviest band I’ve ever seen.” – Vincent from The Acacia Strain

 

 

[RSR-032] Chained to the Bottom of the Ocean “Behind The Veil Inside The Machine”
https://youtu.be/MUiWmYA7NNM

DOOM!

Live studio session recorded in the heart of quarantine at Machines with Magnets.

All the energy of a live Chained… set recorded in a sound studio.

 

 

[RSR-033] Steve Hartlett “At the Theatres”
https://stevehartlett.bandcamp.com/

Ovlov. Steve from Ovlov.

Steve recorded quite a few things during quarantine and released them digitally. This is 3 of those sessions collected on a single cassette: “Solitude For Dummies,” “Prelude to a Ghost Princess,” and “Molting.”

 

 

[RSR-034] Antoni Maiovvi “In Private”
https://maiovvi.bandcamp.com/
A recent UK transplant to CT by way of Berlin. A founder of the Giallo Disco label with numerous releases on labels such as Death Waltz, Lakeshore and Not Not Fun. Catch him touring as Ye Gods with Mogwai this April.

This is a soundtrack to a non-existent movie. Tangerine Dream, Harold Faltermeyer and John Carpenter are not distant cousins to this sound.

[RSR-035] Alexander “Words Are Pebbles Rolling In The River”
https://csiterecordings.bandcamp.com/album/elm-st (Different release by same artist)
Alexander is a solo moniker of New Haven, CT native David Shapiro (Headroom, Kath Bloom, Center). He has shared bills with Mdou Moctar, Loren Connors, Susan Alcorn, Kate Village, and many more. He has released an LP, a split 7″ with Rob Noyes, and a handful of cassettes on C/Site Recordings. He has also self-released an LP and many cassettes that range from guitar soli to improvised electric guitar noise. “Words Are Pebbles Rolling in the River” is his first solo release on Redscroll Records. Contemporary folk guitar in the old country blues style tradition. David also works here!

All of these tapes are available on our Big Cartel page:
