Get Shannon & The Clams’ "Sleep Talk" here now!

Shannon & the Clams Sleep Talk

Following their supremely fun 2009 debut full-length “I Wanna Go Home,” garage/surf outfit Shannon & the Clams seem to have really grown into their sound on their new album “Sleep Talk” (1-2-3-4 Go! Records). On “Sleep Talk,” singer Shannon Shaw showcases the breadth of her vocal talents–she’s got a unique voice, and seems to be able to bend and manipulate it to make it do whatever she wants it to. Her skills are best showcased on tracks like “You Will Always Bring Me Flowers” and “Oh Louie,” where she proves she can really wail. Shaw has a strong understanding of the benefit of sometimes showing restraint and sometimes totally letting loose, and often treads the line between brassy belting and tender crooning.

Shaw is accompanied by guitarist and co-songwriter Cody Blanchard, who contributes some really great harmonizing on songs like “Done With You” and “Half Rat,” and awesome strumming all over this record. The Clams’ songs also tackle a wide variety of topics, from the serious (heartbreak, murder, and exes who are “half-rat”) to the silly (quitting the cult you’ve joined, and being the “king of the sea”). If you’re looking for the perfect album to usher in the good summer vibes, this is the one.

Brain Killer Every Actual State Is Corrupt LP
(Deranged Records)
I’ve been trying to snag a copy of this record since it came out last month, but as soon as we open up the boxes, these get bought up almost instantly. Brain Killer is a hardcore band from Boston, MA that plays fast, crusty & extremely noisy (tons of whirling feedback!). Generally for this type of stuff I prefer a 7″ worth of material, but these dudes keep it interesting and varied through out enough where I can’t help but pay close attention. Hopefully you’ll have the privilege of being made deaf by Brain Killer in a basement somewhere soon. (FFO: Gauze, Disclose, Deathreat)

Delayscape Morse Disco CD
(Anna Logue Records)

This came out late last year on a small import label dedicated to synth music (generally of a more pop variety – though not of the popular radio variety).  It’s a pretty excellent label and I may do a spotlight feature on it in the future.  For now, I’m letting you know about this excellent electro double disc set by Delayscape.  Delayscape lays down thick chunky (yes, the redundancy is necessary) synth lines with generally pulsating beats.  Elektro, even, with a Detroit techno influence.  Think of Legowelt or Drexciya or even DMX Krew. Jam.

Burn 7″
(Revelation Records)
Burn’s first seven inch was released in 1990 on Revelation Records and marked a new era for New York Hardcore. This was way ahead of its time, with unmatched drumming and difficult “90’s” riffs. This is up on my top 5 NYHC releases, and came out when Revelation was straying away from the almost formulaic (but still awesome) hardcore releases and getting into weirder stuff. Up soon after this release was the debut of Into Another, so you get what I mean.

Originally out in 1990 on Black vinyl and limited Pink vinyl (/1000), this has finally been reissued for RECORD STORE DAY. It’s now on Yellow vinyl, and limited to 1000 copies.
[Reviewer: Sean] [Note: We have a very few of these left and when they are gone they are gone for good.]

Discordance Axis The Inalienable Dreamless LP
(Record Store Day Repress On Hydra Head Records)

The name Dave Witte is what will first give you an idea of what this is.  His 2nd great grind band (Human Remains being the first).  Mathematically precise.  Honestly, this is a bench mark and I should be using this as a reference point rather than telling you what other things sound like it.  Every technical grind band that has come after owes a debt to these guys.

Trust Candy Walls / Trinity 7″ 
(Sacred Bones Records)

Mastered at 45RPM, this thing is short so this review will be too.  Sweet melancholy jams with a couple extra saccharine synthesized lines.  Solid.
[Reviewer: Rick]

Vaccine Human Hatred  7” 

(Painkiller Records)

Vaccine offers up ten, fast & heavy hate-fueled straightedge powerviolence songs in just over four minutes. The opening track, “Your Life’s A Joke” takes a non sympathetic stance on drug users and perfectly captures the bands overall aggressive attitude. When I hear lines like, “DISGUSTING PIECE OF FUCKING SHIT / HAVE ANOTHER DRINK / BLOW ANOTHER LINE / LEARN TO FUCKING THINK / GROW A FUCKING SPINE”, I want to X up & run into somebody fist-first. In addition to being the bassist of this outfit, Will Killingworth also handled the recording duties at his studio, DEAD AIR. Will is a master of raw-sounding hardcore recordings. The band features members of FAILURES, GLUE, AMPERE, & RELICS.

[Reviewer: Josh]

Xander Harris Urban Gothic LP


If you know me at all (I’m Rick) then you know I have an affinity for soundtracks and specifically the whole Italo-Disco HOrror variety of those (not really like American 80s films, but not necessarily not those either – catch me in the right mood).  Xander Harris (guise of a man from Texas) fills my hunger for exactly that niche.  This is actually titled as a soundtrack to an analogous horror movie with song titles to match the opening and closing credits and scenes in between.  There are moments when he vears towards EBM (samples laid in over them actually remind me of the better parts of Velvet Acid Christ [do yourself a favor and don’t research that]).  This one has actually been in my rotation for a while – he was gracious enough to send me out a CDr and tape late last year. I’m glad Not Not Fun got ahold of this and added some really nice packaging to the deal.  Looks good.  Sounds good.

Go For Broke #2

Reviews (2 Quick Ones By Rick)

Iceage New Brigade LP
(DAIS020 /500 First Press on black vinyl – Second Press on not-black vinyl is already in the works.)
Originally released by Escho in Copenhagen this pressing by Dais includes two tracks not on that release.  They are good.  Honestly, all of these songs are great.  “Broken Bone” might have the catchiest hook of them all though I would never do myself the disservice of just playing that one track on repeat.  This whole record was on repeat for me for a few days upon first getting ahold of it.  It’s rock and roll in a minimal style with a dark slant.  It actually reminds me a bit of These New Puritans if they were to strip away all the excess. I’m going to throw this on right now – again.

Mater Suspiria Vision Crack Witch LP

(LT021 /300 on black vinyl & /200 on white vinyl)
Have you heard the whispers of witch house?  Have you already written it off as a flash in the pan?  Is the genre’s name too irksome for you to bother with?  Mater Suspiria Vision have been the most prolific band within this genre. Among the great bands with that label they might be the only that fully embraces it and does not work against it like some rebellious angsty tween-ager telling off their folk’s or teachers. “You can’t label me.  I’m a square peg and you’re trying to fit me in a round hole!”  Corny analogy, but you get it.  Slow down.  I wish this record was mastered at 45RPM so I could slow it down even further.  It is some serious mysticism.  Italian horror movie, reverb, delay, repeat, sample loving sounds from the depths.  (Aquarius Records did quite a comprehensive review here:
