Hey All!

Another week has come to its end, so you know its time for another vinyl-filled RECORD OF THE WEEK blog!! We had an insane amount of records come in this week (45 palettes to be exact, check out the picture at the bottom of the blog!), so it was definitely hard to choose the top contenders this time around. However, I think we did a pretty good job… Just get a load of these insane releases!!

The undisputed RECORD OF THE WEEK this time around comes from the almighty HELLS HEADBANGERS Records, with their newest release from PROFANATICA! Aside from the amazingly blasphemous artwork, this insane package features laser etching around the outer rim of all 4 sides of the release, as well as music which only goes up to 10 inches of the 12” record! Very, VERY cool!! The etching and printed picture disc sleeves were a nice touch as well….Horns up, guys!!

BAND: Profanatica
LABEL: Hells Headbangers

—————————————— Honorable Mentions ————————————-

The first honorable mention this week comes from the massively successful SLEIGH BELLS! This electro-dance two-piece have created something pretty awesome for their 2nd full length…just check out ALL of those printed inserts! On top of that, the printed innersleeve and gatefold jacket make this a total beast of a record…Great job, dude and lady!!

BAND: Sleigh Bells
LABEL: Mom and Pop Music

Check out the crazy vinyl configurations included in this new record from PHANTOMS! The Neapolitan idea came out fantastic, and yes, it makes me want a milkhake….Just another example of all the craziness you can come up with by taking advantage of our various vinyl options… Awesome!!

BAND: Phantoms

New from RISE RECORDS comes the latest offering from Michigan’s pop-punk heroes in CHEAP GIRLS! Very sleek, nice looking package…we definitely dig it! This band is doing very cool things, so be on the lookout for them in 2012!

This new release from SHARKS features A Side/B Side, Color in Color, AND Tri-Color vinyl options…Now THAT’s what I’m talking about! Love it when labels and bands mix it up like this… The record looks killer! Rise Records is definitely killin’ it lately…

Even though this is a repress, we HAD to include this “Doombox” release from GRAF ORLOCK! If you have never seen this before, then prepare to have your mind blown. This 10” jacket folds out to an actual life-size boombox. Amazing. Gotta’ love VITRIOL RECORDS!

BAND: Graf Orlock

Continuing on with another repress is FLATFOOT 56’s “Black Thorn” LP! The “Ultra Clear” w/ brown splatter was a sweet choice… Kill it out on the road, guys!!

LABEL: Ollie Mob Records
Last but not least is a repress from the Bay Area’s very own MAGIC BULLETS! For all fans of indie-rock and good ol’ fashioned rock n’ roll that’ll make you want to dance, Look no further! This is your new favorite record. If you dig it, definitely check out these guys’ new band, the TERRY MALTS. We featured their LP last week in the blog, and we highly encourage you to give it a spin!
