You probably didn’t even know this was coming out. We’ve been working on this quietly in dark corners of places we dare not speak. Two of Connecticut’s current bearers of the torch in the hardcore tradition. Conspiracy theorists and intergalactic heathens join forces in sonic exploration and unraveling of ancient mysteries. Limited to 300 copies.
Available in the store right now. If you can’t make it into the store you can buy it online right now here.
Oh, and we may even be working on more releases right now.
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).
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 HandUsurper Divine7″(RSR010) $4.50 (+ Shipping in the U.S.)
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/
THE WORLD IS A BEAUTIFUL PLACE & I AM NO LONGER AFRAID TO DIE Also from CT, The World Is A Beautiful Place.. play awesome twinkly jams. Check out their soon-to-be-released EP, “Josh Is Dead,” here: http://theworldis.bandcamp.com/album/josh-is-dead
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.
