Evil Conduct – “That Old Tattoo”
A short but sweet RECORD OF THE WEEK Blog this time around. Buckle up and get ready for the ride!
Right out of the gate this week is our very own sister company, PIRATES PRESS RECORDS with this killer shaped picture disc from EVIL CONDUCT, with a custom printed PVC bag to boot! This Dutch powerhouse formed in the 80s, but really hit it in the early 2000’s with their debut albums. The A side is their song, “That Old Tattoo” which originally appeared on a 2014 split with GIMP FIST. The B side is a live version of their 1986 demo, “Ultra-Violence”, equally as hard hitting as the A side. There were only 1000 of these made, so you better hit up the PIRATES PRESS RECORDS web store asap. Keep your eye on EVIL CONDUCT’s tour schedule as they’re bound to hit the states soon….

So Cal’s own BLEEDING GOLD RECORDS is here with the debut album from TAPE WAVES, this time available with a Flexi featuring a bonus track! TAPE WAVES is a married duo that plays dream pop sounds. Hailing from Charleston SC, they have been well received by critics far and wide. This time around, BLEEDING GOLD brought you this release with a reverse board jacket, printed inner sleeve and made it avail in either a purist’s favorite ‘Black’ vinyl, or the color that caught our eye, the ‘Cyan’ and ‘Baby Pink’ Aside/Bside variant. TAPE WAVES just finished a So Cal tour, but BLEEDING GOLD has their vinyl available right now!

Milwaukee based GOOD LAND RECORDS is blessing your ears and eyes with a split between DWIGHT TWILLEY and JOSH BERWANGER! Yes, the same DWIGHT that you remember from 1975’s “I’m On Fire” and the same JOSH from from indie darlings THE ANNIVERSARY! Check out the reverse board jacket and the ‘Cyan Blue’ vinyl, with or without ‘Halloween Orange’, ‘Silver’ and ‘Kelly Green’ splatter. The splatter version is limited to 100 copies, and they are all hand numbered. DWIGHT TWILLEY has an album coming out later this year on GOOD LAND, so this is somewhat a teaser. JOSH BERWAGER has some SXSW shows this year, but you can listen to this one to get your fix until then….
