Posh Isolation: White Void 12″ & Puce Mary LP

Posh Isolation are trading tapes for nudes. No joke.

If sending full frontals to strangers does not fall within your realm of comfort, then you can also just buy some things (using cold, hard cash) on their website: poshisolation.net. And if you are currently sizzling in the North American summer heatwave, then you can pick up copies of the two newest vinyl offerings over at analogworship.com and shave a bit off the cost of import. Post-punk worship and industrial noise should help take the edge of that humidity, right?

Death From Above 1979 – The Physical World LP

Hell yes. Death From Above 1979 are back and no amount of uninterested hipster posturing is going to convince me that you aren’t just a fucking dweeb if you don’t like the new track and hey! Look at that! A lyric video that is not an absolutely atrocious eyesore and waste of bandwidth! Cool. You can pre-order a vinyl copy of The Physical World at kt8merch.com.

M Geddes Gengras – Ishi LP

It’s been awhile since a drone album grabbed me like this one has. In fact, even calling it that may be leaving it too vulnerable to easy dismissal from those of you who sold all your shit drone tapes at the swap meet last year – this is an orchestral work on par with Stars of the Lid and Kyle Bobby Dunn – a beautiful and serene album to lose your head in; from a dude who has been around the scene long enough to know a thing or two. The Stones Throw / Leaving Records partnership continues to yield strange and beautiful fruit, so you can pick this one up right now from stonesthrow.com.

Finally, those of us who showed up to the Chelsea Wolfe party one album late can catch up – The Grime and The Glow has been repressed and can be purchased over at hellomerch.com. Limited to 1000 on colored (well, actually it’s “grey/black smoke” so not really colored) vinyl. Mascara not included.

AEVANGELIST – Omen Ex Simulacra 2xLP

This one’s a bit of a sleeper and has been sitting in the drafts for several weeks, but there’s no time like a humid Friday afternoon to put on your headphones and rub a death metal belt-sander all over your brain. This 2xLP was released on Debemur Morti and can be picked up from shop-hellsheadbangers.com.

Pallbearer – Foundations of Burden 2xLP

A new album from Pallbearer is nothing to turn your nose up at, lest it roll right over you and grind your bones into pixie dust. Insurmountable heaviness. This is coming out on Profound Lore and can currently be ordered from the distributor at midheaven.com. Guess what? It’s gonna be great.

Brian Reitzell – Auto Music LP

We first became aware of Brian Reitzell’s music because of the TV show Hannibal, which he soundtracks. If you’ve seen the show, you may have noticed that there are only about 3 minutes of silence in every 43 minute episode – every other moment being subtly soundtracked with electro acoustic ambient (well, sometimes not so subtly nor acoustic). Point is: the man is a prolific talent and has probably had some hand in some of your favorite movie soundtracks as well, given his discography listing. However, this is the first album proper and contains actual, discreet songs with features from industry friends like Kevin Shields (no big deal). You can pre-order at amazon.com.

Chelsea Wolfe “Ἀποκάλυψις” LP

Updated 06/26/2014: repressed – hellomerch.com.

A suggestion, if I may be so bold: go pick up this album right now. I was a little late to Chelsea Wolfe’s doom inspired folk, and by the time I went searching for a vinyl version, it was already long gone. Well that situation has been rectified, and there are copies available for purchase once again from Pendu Sound. Wolfe channels the pathos of the great folk songstresses but this is not sunny San Francisco music for tying flowers in your hair. Just look at the cover art, this is the work of a woman possessed of an unholy and malevolent spirit. Great stuff. Pick it up at pendusound.com.


Can Reissues

The Can albums are being reissued individually. You no longer have to fork over half a paycheck in order to own the few that you want. Let’s be honest, though – you are going to end up buying them all anyways. So far, it looks like you can pick up Monster Movie or Ege Bamyasi along with Tago Mago and Soundtracks (links below) on pre-order over at bleep.com. We haven’t found a good option to purchase stateside quite yet but when we do, you’ll hear about it.

Update: You’re right to be wary of purchasing Can vinyl; bootlegs abound. However, we have every right to believe these are completely licensed and legitimate so you should purchase with confidence. Read the write-up over at boomkat.com and assuage your fears.
