BIG BUSINESS’ 5th studio album ‘Command Your Weather’. Recorded in Joshua Tree, CA. ‘Command Your Weather’ sees BIG BUSINESS return to its original two-man lineup of Jared Warren and Coady Willis. It’s a haunting dream about the struggle for dominance of will over the power and unpredictability of nature. Or it’s just a really great rock record, it depends on how weird you’re willing to get. Get a load of those ‘Gold’ orbs over at JOYFUL NOISE RECORDINGS!
SAT. NITE DUETS make rock music that evokes the spirit and candor of the Midwest’s greatest outsiders. Their newest record is called ‘Air Guitar’, the latest full-length since ‘Electric Manland’ did the worm across college radio in 2013. Composed in true and perfect form (erratically in a basement in Milwaukee), ‘Air Guitar’ continues the democratic tradition over at FATHER DAUGHTER RECORDS!
Fully embodying the DIY spirit, COUNTDOWN is a force to be reckoned with. These young musicians are channeling legendary hardcore acts while adding their own fresh twist to create an original take on the timeless punk sound. Already carrying an intense amount of energy in the American hardcore scene, with a lot of attention already being focused on this “demo” release, you can expect to hear a lot more on COUNTDOWN in the months and years to come as the band blossoms and expands through more records and shows, with the help of their new label, FLATSPOT RECORDS! See if that “white’ with Blue haze version is still around…

FUTURE ORIENTS (formerly The Eat) is a four-piece rock band from Beijing, China. They formed in the tumult of 2012, when their spiritual home, legendary rock dive D-22, was on its last legs. They started gigging regularly in the following years at D-22’s reincarnation, XP, fusing influence from UK indie stalwarts Foals and Mogwai with a homegrown, Beijing take on psychedelic freakout rock, dance punk, and kosmische electronica to present their own sonic brew: not quite pretty, but infectious; not quite crazy, but undeniably intense. About to head out on a month + long tour across China, if you can’t get your visa in order then head over to MAYBE MARS (or their US partner FAR OUT DISTANT SOUNDS) and see if you can order a copy for yourself…
CLOUDS TASTE SATANIC formed in Brooklyn, New York in 2013. After two highly successful full lengths, the band is back with their third installment, ‘Dawn of the Satanic Age’ , and as always with their vinyl releases, amazing colored vinyl wrapped in a gatefold jacket. Get some!
