RSR PC 079 Kane / Northern Void Records

This month we talked on the podcast to Kane from Northern Void Records. We talk about what we’re listening to and quickly dive into how Kane developed his own music and metal fandom into a distribution operation and record label.

Kane dives into how he solicited releases and what he’d like to put out in the future – archival and new acts alike.  We talk about his daily EMT life and veer off in a couple different pathways as well. Check it out!

New Jazz LP from Trance Macabre!

Redscroll Records presents its very first jazz release!

Trance Macabre Cover

Via Nicholas Serrambana: Trance Macabre is grateful for the opportunity to release their first vinyl statement with Redscroll Records. One track is available now on Bandcamp along with digital and vinyl pre-order. Composer and bandleader Nicholas Serrambana plays fretless bass while joined by the ever urgent Wes Lewis on saxophone, the insightful Vigilance Brandon on brass, the uncanny Michael Larocca on drums, flute sorceress Autumn Asbridge, and Connecticut jazz pedagogue extraordinaire Noah Baerman on synth.

Vinyl comes out this Friday July 5.

This sextet reinvigorates the disenfranchised jazz fan through a punk theatricality and invites non-jazz listeners to enter the music without the dogma of genre. Though Trance Macabre presents compositions here, the presence of free improvisation is integral. Each of the four pieces here stretches out to prog rock lengths, but with both ample melodies and unscripted plateaus throughout. Those who are drawn in by the dissonant onset of the first song may find themselves surprised to discover the lyrical ballad that concludes side B. This record is for people who dare to recognize the singable in Cecil Taylor.

Intercourse “Bag Fumblers Incorporated 2021-2024” CD release!

Buy the CD online from us here! 

Intercourse formed in 2013 and has been annoying ever
since. With the goal of ditching the pretension of noise rock and
fusing it with the immediacy of hardcore they’ve managed a
release a year since 2014. This CD collects all the material from the
most consistent and current line up of the band starting with
2021’s Rule 36 (Reptilian Records / Constant Disappointment) &
the Canyons split (The Ghost Is Clear Records) 2023’s Halo
Castration Institute (Learning Curve Records / Redscroll) helped
the band reach a new level of notoriety with positive reviews
across the board. Egyptian Democracy (Redscroll Records) recently
released in the winter of 2024 followed by well received tours and a coveted spot on the Red Chord reunion gigs.

Intercourse have also recently toured with contemporaries, Chat
Pile, and have opened for Deadguy, Great Falls, and Pissed Jeans.

RSR PC 078 Little Lost Records (Abbie, Conor & Randy)

On this episode we talk to the purveyors of Little Lost Records in Stafford Springs, CT.  Musical folks looking to spread their love of music in the North East corner of CT opened their store just about a year ago. Conor and Abbie discuss meeting through their connection to Paul Winter! Through that connection they opened this new store. Randy (previously on our podcast in 2017 as a member of the band Cable) visited their shop opening day and quickly became a regular and soon partner! Listen to all the details on this episode!

L-R: Randy, Conor, Abbie

We talk about the music we’re listening to. We talk about the music they make outside of the shop. We talk about the music that happens in their shop! We talk about the music made by another shopkeep, Ian of Records the Good Kind (check out his episode on the podcast here and his musical project, The Aspersions here and his previous group Musical Chairs here). We talk about the town of Stafford Springs and what they’d like to see move in to their town. We go off in a few directions. Take a listen!
