Live Music: Iceage, Female, Medication, The Men- June 23, 2011 (New Haven, CT)

ICEAGE, FEMALE, AND MORE TBA
Thursday June 23, 2011 7PM $7 All Ages


Perhaps you’ve caught wind of the buzz surrounding Iceage, a young rock and roll group out of Denmark.  Perhaps you read the review I did of it here.  Perhaps you’re well aware of this band and have already made your mind up.  And you’re probably right, they are great.  I was very excited to be able to host them on a show here in CT (one of not very many stateside shows – I think there’s going to be 6 total for this tour).  If you haven’t yet made up your mind on Iceage you can check out the New Brigade LP on Dais (now on it’s 2nd pressing).  We have some at the shop (1st press went fast so be quick about it).  If you need a fix right now, then check this video:

Female is a local progenitor of the minimal wave sound. It’s quite good (and yes, Female is a moniker). Female has been very prolific and very under-the-radar. They’ve got many albums worth of material (66 tracks) available for free at the Free Music Archive.  Dig around on that for a while.  It should keep you busy for a minute. 
Medication and The Men have rounded out the bill.  Coincidentally enough they both have recently released LPs on Sacred Bones Records.  I swear it’s a coincidence.  Good label.  You should check out their wares (uhh, we sell them).
Should be fun!

Iron Hand – Usurper Divine 7" (RSR010) Out Now!

Iron Hand Usurper Divine 7″
(RSR010)
Out Now!
(front)
(back)
We talked to our friends in Iron Hand a good while back about doing this 7″ with them.  The time is finally here.  A 7″ record with four righteous tracks of crust d-beat loving hardcore.  The band features current and past members of They And The Children, Estrogen Highs and Last Words (as well as a bunch of others).  Keep up to date with Iron Hand live dates on their blog

Iron Hand is a crust/d-beat hardcore band from Connecticut incorporating past and contemporary influences within the genre, such as Discharge, State Of Fear, and Crow.  Lyrically, the band addresses its sociopolitical criticisms while also taking opportunity to address personal introspection.

The most immediate and notable show is their record release.  It’s happening April 16, 2011 (which happens to be Record Store Day).

Iron Hand Usurper Divine 7″ (RSR010)
$4.50 (+ Shipping in the U.S.)

[International orders please email redscroll@gmail.com for quote.]

  Also available in the shop, of course!

Apologies to anyone who used the button attached to a large shipping quote. I’ve now attached a fixed shipping price ($2) for all of the U.S. If you’ve already paid with the higher shipping we will send you your 7″ with a couple bucks to refund the excess shipping amount. Thanks all.

PAUL BARIBEAU
Michigan native Paul Baribeau has spent the last handful of years adhering to a fairly rigorous tour life. His acoustic songs can be romantically tender, nostalgically bittersweet, and introspective, with a healthy infusion of humor and humility. Paul’s latest album, “Unbearable,” is out now on No Idea. Listen here: http://paulbaribeau.bandcamp.com/

THE BOY WHO COULD FLY
The Boy Who Could Fly is Kari Jorgensen, on tour with Paul through the first half of March. Her latest album, “Brain Cloud,” comes out on March 21, but you can listen to it here first: http://theboywhocouldfly.bandcamp.com/

CANVAS
Canvas hails from CT and is ex-Call It Arson. Check out their “La Lechuza” EP & “Acoustic Jams” here: http://canvasct.bandcamp.com/

THE WORLD IS A BEAUTIFUL PLACE & I AM NO LONGER AFRAID TO DIE

Here is the FACEBOOK EVENT

Avant! Records in stock

Avant! Records now available at Redscroll
There is a better than good chance you have not heard of Avant! Records or its offerings.  Well, let’s correct that.  Avant! is a fine small label out of Italy up to its eighth release (more on that to follow).  Music on the label tends to be dark and fuzzy (sometimes garage-like and sometimes folkish).  The first four releases are all sold out, unfortunately.  The latest four releases are all available in our store now.  
[The following are the descriptions lifted right from the Avant! Distro Blog and mixed with some videos I’ve plundered from the netherweb.]
Cult Of Youth: Filthy Plumage In An Open Sea! 12’’ mLP
The third vinyl release from Brooklyn’s dark folk act contains a brighter and more focused side of Cult Of Youth that once again challenges the established boundaries of neofolk and post-industrial music.

 

  

Cccandy: Lonesome Berlin LP 
 
Long time coming first LP. Cold wave, minimal synth, bedroom electronics on white vinyl, hand-silkscreend sleeves, insert with lyrics & artwork.



 

 The Feeling Of Love: Waiting For The Cheerleaders To Get Drunk 7”

The Feeling Of Love is an actual trio now, synth came to stay and you can hear how it makes these two new songs sound more groovy than ever.





 

Krysmopompas: Gesa 7”
After their great double album on S-S, two darker and slower tracks without drums, only an analogue Casio beat to create a real cold-war feeling.

This cassette tape was recorded during a live ritual over one year ago. It is hand-numbered and strictly limited to 100 copies (authenticated with the Redscroll Seal). Hail Satan.
