1st Of February 2013 Update of New and Key Restocked Items + Reviews
at Redscroll Records

Hey, the Superbowl (not to mention the Puppy Bowl with Kitty Halftime and Hedgehog Cheerleaders) is on Sunday so you should take a look at this update now and get your preparations underway today and/or Saturday. We think the most important thing is the music for pre-gaming and post-gaming and half-timing and during-gaming. (Suggestion from Redscroll: during Beyonce’s performance listen to Solange at the same time or instead of.) Oh, and we are open regular hours Sunday (12-6PM) as usual.

Brass Caskets / Cold Snap

This split seven-inch brings together two furious, up-and-coming hardcore bands from Connecticut. Both roar with elements of noise rock and post-hardcore, but each side’s unique aspects (not just musically, but lyrically as well) stand out the best. The four-piece Brass Caskets remind me the most of Refused, tackling issues involving government corruption, surveillance, secrets and truth suppression. Most importantly, the lyrics serve as a call to action to take the torch and continue questioning those in power, should anything unfortunate happen to the writer. Cold Snap is more abstract, using a spacey, noisy and drugged-out sound (reminding me more of Unsane) with lyrics filled with metaphors and poetic imagery. The themes include questioning one’s self and what sounds like a severely difficult relationship (“I am nothing but a splinter / under the skin of your existence.”) Both bands’ styles make this split an easy recommendation to anyone who likes hardcore.

Taken by Trees Other Worlds

(Secretly Canadian)
Originally the lead singer for Swedish indie-pop octet The Concretes, Victoria Bergsman has been releasing albums for this solo experimental pop project since 2006. Upon listening to her third album, it’s not the least bit surprising that it was inspired by time spent in Hawaii: she uses a smooth-sounding mix of tropical instrumentation for this very laid-back sounding indie pop/world music experience. It feels like a summer spent relaxing on beaches and in rainforests, drifting through semi-conscious observations of places far from the urbanized world. Bergsman utilizes sliding steel guitars and percussion that ranges from punching and resonant to organic to straight-up steel drums (“Pacific Blue” is an excellent example of such, fusing ethereal pop with traditional island music.) Reggae fits the mix well, whether as a light, sporadic element (“Highest High”) or the complete, piano-based focus (“I Want You.”) It sounds especially interesting delivered with Bergsman’s otherworldly, layered voice.
