Sect – “Sect”
In the heat of the summer, nothing better than a RECORD OF THE WEEK blog!!!
SECT is comprised of five veterans of ‘90s hardcore who cut their teeth in that formative moment of political, cynical, antagonistic extremes. Because the Orwellian police states and irreparable social and ecological disasters we once saw off on the horizon are now on our front doorsteps, in full swing – and in just such a volatile, precarious moment as this for civilization, there is more reason than ever to keep lashing out at a world more suicidally bent on its own destruction and the exploitation of people, species and the ecosystem itself, than perhaps ever before in history. For SECT, this is the purpose of hardcore as they know it, conveying an urgency that transcends age, credentials or scene politics, to convert desperation into real talk and action. Self released, get one of these colored discs (or the classic black version for true fans) straight from the band!
———————————— Honorable Mentions ———————————————
SWAMP WITCH; the culmination of psychedelic substances, occult practices, and band members interest in dark, strange, and trippy music. Their first release brought forth these interests, though it wasn’t until the recording of “The Slithering Bog” that their psychedelic horror and warped visions were fully brought to life. TRIBUNAL OF THE AXE RECORDS is bringing you these ‘Swamp Green’ and ‘Deep Purple’ versions of this LP. Get some today!
If you weren’t at the Amnesia Rock fest in Canada last week, then you missed out on this special version of the FAT WRECK CHORDS ‘Fat Music for Wrecked People’ comp! Featuring everyone from NOFX to JOEY CAPE, PEARS, LEFTOVER CRACK and more, it pays to go to festivals!
ECHO BEDS began in August of 2010 as a one-off live performance, and they’ve been at it now been at it for almost 6 years! If you were to amplify oil drums, broken cymbals, battered basses, unrecognizable tape loops, dilapidated voices and push it into the red you’d have a pretty good idea of what to expect from a live set. SAILOR RECORDS is bringing you this LP in either ‘Cyan’ or classic Black, but all of them have the very subtle spot gloss image on the cover you have to see to appreciate.
Minneapolis based LEARNING CURVE RECORDS specializes in Noise Rock. Dropping this split 7” on the masses, MULTICULT and POWER TAKE OFF are two favorite bands from the east coast, and the were finally convinced to share a 7”! Check out that tri color version and try to pick one up at LEARNING CURVE if you still can…
