Kindling – Everywhere Else LP

It’s no secret. We like Kindling. Stephen Pierce, Gretchen Williams & Co. rip through twelve tracks of thick, low end pop-gaze on ‘Everywhere Else’ that is sure to satiate your need for viscous sounds. Like a well crafted New England style IPA, this bad boy is right up in your grill with notes of stonefruit […]

Thor & Friends – Self Titled LP

Remember that time you saw Swans and there was that one burly dude playing all kinds of auxiliary instruments while Gira was on his spirit quest? Well, said dude was Thor Harris, and he’s teamed up with Peggy Ghorbani and Sarah Gautier (as well as Jeremy Barnes and Heather Trost of A Hawk & A […]

Thee Oh Sees – Live In San Francisco LP + DVD

I’m sold on the cover photograph alone, but if you need more convincing: it is worth mentioning that Thee Oh Sees are objectively proven to be the greatest live band of all time. Or so I’ve heard; I’ll have to rely on documentation like this in order to confirm: castlefacerecords.com.

Whitney – Light Upon The Lake LP

Blame it on their recent ascent to the hallowed ranks of Pitchfork’s BNM –or just the fact that Whitney hit all the key Dad Rock notes which vinyl collectors love so much – but the joyous, golden-hued debut from this group seems to already be getting scarce on our favorite analog format. If this isn’t the perfect soundtrack for ringing […]

T_A_M – In Tandem LP

Here’s an unexpected turn from this Scottish grime producer, but you can be certain that nobody in the OMGV camp is complaining. Never enough bucolic electronica in the world, is there? T_A_M makes it seem so simple, too. Pick up a copy on vinyl (limited to 300 pieces, mind) over at apothecarycompositions.bandcamp.com. In Tandem by T_A_M In Tandem […]

Bad Breeding – s/t LP

Oh my goodness, hello there! Bad Breeding play vitriolic punk rock in no sort of safe or digestible way – the way punk rock should always be played. You can pick up their self-titled full-length at a reasonable price (even after conversion rates and import cost) or just download the WAV files for free at […]

Plebeian Grandstand – False Highs, True Lows LP

Hey, is Spring getting you down? Too much sunlight? Birds chirping? Well we got a way to introduce a little blight into your happy world. The French collective Plebeian Grandstand have a new ripper, packed to the gills with asymmetrical dissonance and blackened tech that is sure to pummel (in the best possible way of […]

Zach Cooper – The Sentence LP

‘The Sentence’ is a new LP of modern composition from Zach Cooper, and its pretty killer. Made up of contemporary recordings and early bedroom experiments, the record has a great nostalgic and spiritual tilt to it. Rambling guitars, synths, horns, woodwinds – all tiptoeing around, doing a great job of providing a listening experience similar […]

Dälek – Asphalt For Eden LP

Dälek is a bit of an anomaly in the hip hop world. Or, they were, until groups like Death Grips showed up. But you know, maybe thats what happens when you take a break for 6 years? Having shared the stage with everyone from RJD2 to ISIS, they’ve made a name for themselves in the […]

Naðra – Allir vegir til glötunar LP

Forum lurkers and scene chasers know: there’s something wicked going on in Iceland these days. The black metal being exported is of a quality that is simply unmatched within any other geographic setting right now. Fallen Empire was in early (as usual) with their vinyl release (and subsequent repressings) of the debut album from Misþyrming and […]
