Venenum – Trance of Death LP

Has progressive-psychedelic-death become the dad-rock of the metal genre? I’m not a dad, so I wouldn’t know. In any case, for their LP debut, Venenum steer their ship toward the same strange waters recently charted by Morbus Chron and Tribulation. Pick it up at theajnaoffensive.com.

Davy Kehoe – Short Passing Game 12″ EP

Wah Wah Wino proves itself an imprint to keep your eyeballs on with this newest 6 track, 40 minute “EP” from Davy Kehoe. We start completely off the rails with the title track and it never really gets any less… weird. Electronic music needs more of this particular brand of madness. Short Passing Game is currently flying off the shelves at all of our favorite distros, but you can still procure a copy from pbvinyl.com or put it on pre-order over at forcedexposure.com.

Federico Durand – La Niña Junco LP

Argentinian composer Federico Durand has a new LP on the always quality 12k label (which we are stoked is doing more vinyl.) La Niña Junco is made up of two sides of minimal floating tones performed on a dusty old Crumar Performer synthesizer and filtered through a handful of effects. Durand’s music is always very personal and this new one is no different. Just a man, his tools, and his memories. Highly recommended for some quiet afternoon listening.

Available direct from 12k

the spirit of the beehive – pleasure suck LP

We’ve been riding high on the warm and fuzzy vibes of this LP for a couple of weeks now, and if the lukewarm Pitchfork review caused you to neglect it, we suggest you re-evaluate. pleasure suck ticks exactly all the right boxes for us, and is bound to be in heavy rotation as the Midwest thaws out and warms up. Cop it on colored vinyl over at thespiritofthebeehive.bandcamp.com.

Emperor X – Oversleepers International LP

Jacksonville by way of Berlin troubadour Emperor X (aka former chemistry teacher, math tutor, and physics graduate student Chad Matheny) is serving up a new full length following up his killer 2011 LP Western Teleport. Oversleepers International finds Matheny blending his familiar sharp wit with humor and poignancy, all backed by a toolbox of instrumentation. Imagine the Mountain Goats getting into a food fight with Atom And His Package. It makes sense, trust us.

Available on direct from the man himself and Tiny Engines

Oxbow – Thin Black Duke LP

After ten years of whispers and speculation, the time has come for the genre bending genius of Oxbow to present Thin Black Duke. Fans of the more recent output from the band will see this as a clear progression of the Oxbow procession. Scatterbrain vocal delivery, melody & discord, and…brass, apparently. Pre-orders up now at Hydrahead (did they come back from the dead or what?) on three colors of wax and we highly recommend you jump on at least one.

Various Artists – A Decade Ilian Tape 3xLP

Fans of breakbeat driven techno will want to throw this one in their bag immediately. For a full decade now, the Zenker Brothers have been releasing nothing but quality tunes on their Ilian Tape imprint, and to celebrate they are dropping a gorgeous 3xLP compilation appropriately titled A Decade Ilian Tape. You should be able to pick this up on pre-order at any of your favorite online retailers; we are obviously fond of redeyerecords.co.uk.
