Big Bite – “Big Bite”
May the Fourth be with you today while you enjoy the RECORD OF THE WEEK Blog!!!
Every member of BIG BITE found each other via a spiritual connection of past lives in 2015 and has since formed deeper bonds through live performance and guided meditation, thus continuing a lineage of sacrifice through music. Taking over a year to record and mix, this is BIG BITE’s debut LP! Courtesy of POP WIG, its a culmination of all the ideas formed over the three years since the bands formation. Hang tight because BIG BITE is about to head out on a full US and Canada tour starting in June!!!
———————————— Honorable Mentions ———————————————
After an overwhelming demand on the first pressing during Record Store Day, Pirates Press Records sprung into immediate action on a repress. BOOZE & GLORY’S “London Skinhead Crew” contains both the recently released reggae version and the original recording – while the grooves play INSIDE OUT! This repress is done on ‘Claret’ & ‘Blue’ AsideBside and like the first pressing, will not last long. Pick up a copy over at PIRATES PRESS RECORDS!
For HONEY AND SALT, there is immense power in the parts of a whole. This idea has always been in the band’s DNA, from its three members — each with their own distinct and essential contributions — to the flurry of interlocking notes and melodies that make up their intricate songs. Now on their self-titled sophomore album, it also extends into their worldview, as HONEY AND SALT seek to cut through the pessimistic fog of seemingly inescapable sociopolitical unease, and highlight the vital capability of the individual. Find out more over at SPARTAN RECORDS!
MOM+POP MUSIC is a leading independent record label, based in New York. Celebrating it’s 10th Anniversary in 2018, MOM+POP’S are releasing a series of limited edition picture discs of some of the best from their catalog. FIDALR’s 2012 self titled debut album is a perfect place to start, with song’s like ‘Cheap Beer’ and the video for ‘Cocaine’ featuring Nick Offerman, you can’t go wrong with this one!
“Glittervomit” is the dizzyingly energetic sophomore LP from Birmingham, Alabama-based psych-punk outfit THE BURNING PEPPERMINTS. It’s a record that grabs you by the shoulders and shakes you over the course of its lean, 26-minute runtime — but these are eight songs that you’d be dancing to anyway. Their latest retains the lo-fi, west-coast aesthetic you know them for, but now the band is signed to the Kansas City, Missouri-based label HIGH DIVE RECORDS — and with a full-album release, including a vinyl pressing, the record’s a considerably higher-stakes affair…
Another release to get the special picture disc treatment for MOM+POP MUSIC’s 10th Anniversay is the electronic/dance wunderkind, FLUME! His 2012 self titled debut album gained huge attention, and now will soon be available as a slick picture disc from your friends at MOM+POP!
HOWLIN RAIN formed in 2004 – equal parts dust, groove, folk, rock, dirt, mercury, earth, beer, watermelon, the Eel River and the great land that surrounds it. After all these years, they continue to release records and tour. HOWLIN RAIN release their new album “The Alligator Bride” on SILVER CURRENT RECORDS, June 8th, including national and international touring to follow. Find out more in the links below!
Remember, their is no such word as ‘Vinyls’ – no matter if it’s one or a million, it’s just Vinyl…
