  3. ADD/C- "Busy Days" LP

    ADD/C- "Busy Days" LP

    $15.00

    "This record came out at the tail end of 2010 and made it onto my top ten list of the year, so you already know that I love it. Busy Days is everything I’ve ever wanted out of Chattanooga, Tennessee’s ADD/C in their ten (give or take) years of existence. Even though I loved every second of their last LP, I felt that it suffered at times from laziness and not giving a fuck. There are some glaring wrong notes and bad takes on that record. I know that they recorded it at home and could’ve fixed it, but they didn’t. We’re in the present now and this LP is flawless, full of songs that are thoughtful, sincere, depressing and make me want to flail myself around a room full of punks. I’ve never been able to compare ADD/C to any other bands besides themselves, which is fucking awesome. They fall into that gray area (not unlike the BANANAS) where they take the basic elements of jangly punk and filter it through their own region, their own style, and mirror what is going on in their own community while eschewing corporate influence and creeping monoculture. The result is a damn fine record that is less like another LP to add to the heap, but more like a triumph for the punks (the jangly pop ones, anyway). This are songs for the End Times with lyrics like “Where are we gonna sleep? What are we gonna eat? / When all the cars are just useless metal heaps?” and “I’ll never get to Heaven because I don’t believe there is one.” I could go on for days. The record comes with a beautiful full-sized zine/lyric booklet drawn by Heather Lacey and Billy Joe Johnson. The cover art is the most beautiful I’ve seen in years and if bands are not banging down Yuri’s (the artist) door in France and begging her to draw anything for their goddamn pitiful band, this world is fucked."-MRR (Mauled by Tigers / Plan-It-X South) Learn More
  4. PEDRO THE LION- "Phoenix" 2XLP (Seafoam w/Etched)

    PEDRO THE LION- "Phoenix" 2XLP (Seafoam w/Etched)

    $25.00

    Pedro the Lion has always been David Bazan, but it took a long time to get back there. In August 2016, during what he now recognizes as his lowest point, Bazan was touring the country alone in an aging minivan and found himself in his hometown of Phoenix, AZ. In need of a break from the road, he spent a night off at his grandparents’ house instead of driving on to San Diego. Before leaving town the next morning, after realizing that even the most familiar places can become unrecognizable, Bazan gave himself the gift of a quick detour past the house he grew up in, and on the way, experienced a breakthrough - one that would lead him both forward and back to another home he had built many years before. From the beginning, Pedro the Lion didn’t work like the bands Bazan had played drums in, where each player came up with their own parts. Instead, like scripting scenes of dialogue for actors to play with, Bazan recorded and arranged all of the skeletal accompaniments for his obsessively introspective lyrics and spare melodies. Each player would then learn their parts and, together as a band, they brought the skeleton to life. While bandmates played on a few recordings, Bazan often played all or most of the instruments himself. “I found so much joy working this way,” Bazan remembers. “It came naturally and yielded a feeling and a sound that couldn’t have existed by any other process. At the same time, I was also aware that not everyone wanted to play in a band where the singer wrote all the parts and might perform them on the record. Someone even suggested it might not be a valid approach to having a band in the first place. Being insecure and wanting to find camaraderie, I became conflicted about my natural process.” By 2002, after recording Control, the high rate of turnover in the band finally caused Bazan to ditch his “natural process” in favor of a collaborative writing process. When, after a couple more years, this move did nothing to stabilize turnover, Bazan was perplexed. In November 2005, Bazan decided to stop doing Pedro the Lion altogether. Ironically, Bazan didn’t see “going solo” as a chance to revert back to his original process of writing and playing all the parts. For the next decade Pedro the Lion felt off limits, even forgotten, like a childhood home Bazan had moved out of. He pushed forward with releasing solo albums & relentless touring in living rooms and clubs, through every part of the US and beyond, sometimes with a band, but mostly on his own. It took a toll on his family and more acutely on himself. By the summer of 2016, he still hadn’t found the personal clarity or the steady collaboration he’d been seeking and was at the end of his rope. “I had abandoned my natural way of working in the hopes of creating space for a consistent band to write with...and it hadn’t worked. So I got a rehearsal space, mic’d up drums, bass, and guitar, and really leaned into my original process again. It immediately felt like like home. Before long I realized it also felt like Pedro the Lion.” In June 2018, with Bazan on bass, vocals, and arrangement writing, Erik Walters on guitar and backing vocals, and Sean Lane on drums, Pedro the Lion went into Studio X and Hall of Justice with producer Andy Park to create Phoenix, the first new Pedro album in 15 years. The songs themselves are the result of mining your past for who you are now. On opening track “Yellow Bike,” Bazan encapsulates a core ache he’s been exploring since 1998’s It’s Hard to Find a Friend with the line: My kingdom For someone to ride with Phoenix also deals with having to be better to yourself in order to be better to others on “Quietest Friend,” and harkens back to Control’s “Priests and Paramedics” with a story about EMTs facing a gruesome scene, and storytelling as coping mechanism, on “Black Canyon.” It bears witness to both what was around and what was inside, with the signature kindness and forgiveness that lightens Pedro the Lion’s darkest notes. The result is a twisting, darkly hopeful introspection into home and what it means to go back, if you ever can. It is rock and roll wrapped in tissue paper, its hard edges made barely soft. Every melody is careful, a delicate upswing buoyed by guitar lines that hold each tender feeling together like string before ripping them apart to see what’s inside. It is an ode to the place he still loves despite how alien it can appear to him now. It is the story of a life from the beginning, but not a linear one. This life is a circle, and Phoenix goes back to that first point, to show that when we are looking for home we’ll eventually run into it again, whether it’s in the desert, in a rehearsal space, or on a stage.

  5. BOWS- "Neverunite" 7"EP

    BOWS- "Neverunite" 7"EP

    $6.00

    3 track Black Vinyl 7" Limited to 300 copies. Bows are a new(ish) band from Japan who follow in the tradition of fellow countrymen Minority Blues Band, I Excuse, The Urchin, etc in celebrating their love of the mighty Leatherface. The 3 songs on this 7" are no copycat material though, bows bring something different to the party. A recent translation from their native tongue describes their sound as being full of "bursty burst codes and delicate side dishes" and, while I won't pretend to know what that means, I think the words hint at some of the raw energy and fragile melancholy on offer here. But "fragile" in the very punkest of sense of course. Check out bows today and discover your new favourite Japanese band: brassneckrecords.bandcamp.com/album/neverunite JAPAN IMPORT! Learn More

  8. ALLVARET- "Skam Och Skuld" LP

    ALLVARET- "Skam Och Skuld" LP

    $13.00

    It’s always a good sign when you cannot explain why a band is so great. It means something new and inexplicable is at work in their music. Småland, Sweden’s ALLVARET is that great. The elements are easy enough to define: there are the surf-drenched guitars, the powerful vocals and the rock ‘n’ roll frenzy of X – a sound which has been brewing in Denmark and Sweden over the last decade with bands like MASSHYSTERI, THE VICIOUS, TERRIBLE FEELINGS, VANA INGET, and NO HOPE FOR THE KIDS. But there is something more than that, too. Their tuneful hooks take hold of you, drag you deep into their bleak and feral songs and threaten to tear you apart once you’ve been captured. Their music is simultaneously melancholic, frantic, and joyfully danceable. It’s wild and new and something wholly of its own. The energetic melodies that blast through ALLVARET’s new album are simply mind-blowing. This Swedish punk band 2nd album may just be one of the best things that have ever been produced in the history of Swedish melodic punk rock. The anthemic vocals of Sushila are the perfect balance of aggression and sincerity, while the predominantly choppy guitar chords and the drumbeats keep up the motivating energy that drives their music. The ten short and catchy songs that make up this album are simple yet powerful, and the beginning of each new track jolts the listener back into their music. At first, the inability to understand their lyrics may seem jarring to the foreign listener. However, after listening to the entire album a few times, I forgot they were even singing in Swedish! The surf-rocky guitars and snappy punk drumming release sustaining energy, while the passionate tone of the harmonized male-female vocals, at times angry and at times melancholic, create the perfect blend of hooks that will grab you and lead you into a place set up by this musical phenomenon. Any fan of stripped-down garagey punk that is derived from the past but doesn’t live in it would be well-advised to check out ALLVARET. Their latest album demonstrates the extent to which they have honed each of their many strengths, re-configuring rather than regurgitating influences and crafting songs which will lodge themselves firmly into the head of any listener, regardless of whether or not he or she can understand the lyrics. This is the US release of the record in support of a November 2018 West Coast tour. Previously released in Europe on the marvelous Erste Theke Tontrager. Dirt Cult! Learn More
  9. FIGGS, THE- "The Day Gravity Stopped" 2XLP

    FIGGS, THE- "The Day Gravity Stopped" 2XLP

    $20.00

    THE FIGGS- THE DAY GRAVITY STOPPED- A killer 20 song DOUBLE LP from this long running cult status NY power pop three piece! Celebrating 25 years as a band (at time of the LP's release), this is the 11th full length LP from the FIGGS. Drawing from a wide range of influences, THE FIGGS give us 20 new songs of fantastic power pop new wave countrified blue eye soul slap dash rock 'n' roll action on this new DOUBLE LP! 500 PRESSED. REVIEW-Faster Louder Blog - Holy cow, The Figgs have made their London Calling! By my count, The Day Gravity Stopped is their ninth proper LP and their second double album. That's right. I said double album. As in two slabs of vinyl. When you're celebrating 25 years as a band, you've got to go big! And go big The Figgs sure have! The Day Gravity Stopped is all over the place stylistically, and if you were hoping for another Lo-Fi At Society High or Sucking In Stereo, you're bound to be disappointed. But if you're just looking forward to continued greatness from The Figgs, you'll get exactly that. A full quarter century into its existence, this is by no means a band that sounds like it's bored with itself. By all accounts, these guys continue to put on arguably the best live show in all of rock n' roll. And Mike and Pete's legendary songwriting chops are shining brighter than ever. At worst, there are perhaps two songs out of 20 here that might have been better left on the cutting room floor. That's pretty good for an album as ambitious as is, which takes inspiration from sources as varied as Buddy Holly ("Brain Be Gone"), The Beatles ("Jupiter Row", "Avec U"), '70s soft rock ("Always Time"), country rock ("Can't Sit Still"), blue-eyed soul ("Do Me Like You Said You Would"), late-period Replacements ("Wait 'till Dawn"), classic Springsteen ("Camden Love-In"), and new wave pop ("Chinese Handcuffs"). And what's so remarkable is that they tackle all this stylistic diversity and genuinely pull it off! This may or may not be a concept album, and for sure it's meant to be enjoyed as a complete work (ideally with headphones, to take in all that skillful weaving of '70s style electric piano and post-modern synthesizers). But of course we fans always look for those individual standout songs that we can add to our ever-growing lists of Figgs standards. There are indeed a few of those to be heard. I'd put "Do Me Like You Said You Would" up there with anything in The Figgs catalog. It's kind of like the Stones' "Beast of Burden" meets Prince...or something like that. It's actually the only song on the album to run longer than four minutes, but it seems like it's way shorter than that. A guy named Graham Parker says it's a hit. You may have heard of him. "The Recap", with its rumba rhythm and retro-futuristic keyboards, is contemporary and cool and catchy as hell. "She Can't Say No Either", buoyed by a contagious guitar hook and slick vocal overdubs, could pass for a long lost new wave hit from 1982. And if there's such a thing as a "typical" Figgs song, "On the Grounds of Stately Homes" had me loving this album from the get-go. I don't want to say I'm surprised that The Day Gravity Stopped is so good. A better phrasing is that I'm amazed by The Figgs' sustained brilliance after 25 years. Usually when a band this seasoned puts out an album of this caliber, it's a "comeback" from years of inactivity or phoned-in mediocrity. But The Figgs never went away. They never stopped touring or making great music. If they've strayed from the musical style that made their early records such a blast, we can hardly fault them for challenging themselves creatively. And truth be told, The Figgs were never a formulaic band even in their heyday. Some bands are great at one particular type of music, and others are just great bands, period. The Figgs could try any genre of music, and they'd be awesome at it. They're just class. Last year I named them one of the eleven greatest bands of the 2000s. At the rate they're going, they'll make my 2010s list as well!-L.R. Learn More
