a.d.l.r. “Foam on the Waves of Space-Time” Tape

I know this site is dedicated to vinyl, but some of the most exciting underground music is being released on tape.  “Foam on the Waves of Space-Time” by a.d.l.r. is heads and shoulders above most albums getting releases ten times as big, a true diamond in the rough.  There are elements of ambient, drone, and […]

Rot In Hell “As Pearls Before Swine” LP

Deathwish Inc. is back with another hugely brutal hardcore record.  Rot In Hell are from the UK, but their sound is purely American, absolutely shredding.  The LP comes on Gold/Orange or Beer colored vinyl for $12.  Hear some of the album here, then buy it here.

Gonzales “Solo Piano” LP

After floating around for six years without a vinyl release, Gonzales’ “Solo Piano” has finally been issued on our favorite format.  Considered one of the best piano jazz albums of the modern day, this one should impress even genre naysayers.  Do some reading around the internet about this record, it’s truly an anomaly that noone […]

Two New Releases from De Stijl Records

Minneapolis’ own crate-digging powerhouse, De Stijl Records, just put out two fresh new slabs of vinyl.  Charlie Nothing’s “Outside/Inside” is second (and last) album he ever recorded, originally put to tape in 1969.  Mr. Nothing completely shreds the saxophone, landing somewhere along the outer edges of the free-jazz spectrum.  The LP is $16 shipped.  The […]

Woodsman “Insects” 7″

Woodsman continues to lead the charge in Denver, consistently pushing the boundaries of modern underground psychedelia.  On the heels of their new album, they just dropped a brand new 7″ with two absolute rippers.  This is limited to 300 copies on clear green vinyl and costs $8.  Check out the b-side below, it’s something else.  […]

Cloud Nothings “S/T” LP

For their debut album, Dylan Baldi has taken his Cloud Nothings project into much brighter territory, cleaning up the production dramatically.  This Cleveland pop band has been kicking around for a bit on tape and single releases, and this full-length does a pretty good job of pulling everything together.  It gets a bit too close […]

Isis “Oceanic” 2xLP Repress

We don’t usually post on the weekends BUT when it’s one of our favorite bands (Isis) on one of our favorite labels (Robotic Empire) and the most limited color has already disappeared (oops) then we can make an exception. Apparently this album Oceanic is a pretty big deal. Indeed, it is one of the first […]

Big K.R.I.T. & Grillade “The ‘Wuz Here’ Sessions” 12″

It’s been a long time since I was completely blown away by a rap album, but Big K.R.I.T. delivered the goods.  Known for feverishly detonating the blog scene over the past year, this Mississippian, often compared to Pimp C, is easily the most exciting southern rapper to emerge in years.  When cooking up their new […]

Gregg Kowalsky “Battery Townsley” LP

Gregg Kowalsky, the experimental artist from Oakland known for releases on Arbor, Root Strata, Kranky, etc, just released a beautiful new LP on Senufo Editions.  Check out this description: “One side of the LP contains the recording of a performance realised with 10 cassette players positioned inside the bunker of Battery Townsley (World War II […]

We Like Cats “S/T” 12″

We Like Cats is a tongue-in-cheek dub reggae project from Honey Owens (Valet, Miracles Club), Eva Salens (Inca Ore) and Adam Forkner (White Rainbow, Rob Walmart). The subject matter is light, but the grooves are unbelievably heavy, perfect for your next nocturnal smoke-out.  You can get the 12″ vinyl for $12 at MarriageRecs.com.
