Poway California natives UNWRITTEN LAW have teamed up with El Hefe and his wife Jennifer’s CYBER TRACKS to bring you an acoustic best of album! Each version is super limited edition with the picture disc version getting some live sea monkey eggs included with it! UNWRITTEN LAW head out on tour in October with some friends, you better not miss out!
FIRST DIVISION is a Canadian hip-hop duo made up of MC’s Shylow & Expertise. This is their debut album which was released late last year to critical acclaim and this highly anticipated deluxe edition vinyl is finally here! Better thank your friends over at SLICE OF SPICE for making this magic happen!
THE CHRISTIAN FAMILY’s debut single is an irresistible blast of lo-fi garage gospel. Stripped down bare but overflowing with huge garage rock hooks, this boy-girl duo’s tunes recall the best of ‘90s lo-fi heroes with an undeniably catchy nod to the girl groups of the 1960s. One guitar, three drums, and two voices are all that THE CHRISTIAN FAMILY needs to sink its teeth into you. This Phoenix duo has charm to burn. Get some over at SLOPE RECORDS!!!
Portland doom trio MAMMOTH SALMON have just released their vinyl LP debut, “Last Vestige of Humanity,” on DEVIL’S CHILD RECORDS. With shows all over the place including
DEVIL CHILD RECORDS’ own Northwest Heavy Fest in Seattle – you better order now before it’s too late!
Self-described as a “desert pop” band, THE FORMAT materialized around two friends in the early 2000s. Taking influence from ’60s music to craft their own spirited indie pop melodies, now you can finally get their vinyl only, shaped disc of the ‘Swans’ single again! Super limited, hopefully they’re still available when this blog goes up!
Channeling a hefty dose of heavy lyricism via metaphysical realms of consciousness, for DEVIL TO PAY the past decade has predominantly found the front man unearthing lyrics from what many might consider the “Other Side”. Of course this outrageously colored vinyl was brought to you by stoner rock gods RIPPLE MUSIC!!!
He may not be a mainstream mainstay, but mention the name WALTER SCHREIFELS to anyone even tangentially involved in the punk or hardcore scene and chances are you’ll be met with borderline reverence. From his tenure in legendary hardcore bands like Gorilla Biscuits and Youth Of Today to his work in the pioneering post-hardcore acts. SCHREIFELS transcended his hardcore roots and showed another side of his constantly shifting skin with his solo debut ‘An Open Letter To The Scene’. RUN FOR COVER is bringing you this LP reissue with a bonus 7” of all new material! You know what to do…
Will your favorite band be up here next week? Check back and see!
