CANDIDATE DEMO- The Curtain - LP - ANKER SCHALLPLATTEN

click to enlarge Limited edition of 300 copies on red vinyl! The 2nd release on new Berlin-based label ANKER, following the "Retweeted" 2xLP by SLEAFORD MODS. CANDIDATE DEMO is a twopiece from Virginia/USA, featuring Billy of BUCK GOOTER with guitarist John Sgroi. And it's a total killer! Electronica-Guitar-Post-Punk with a sinister touch. 9 tracks that can be aptly described as "BIG BLACK meets with JOY DIVISION", or like a Dark-Punk version of MEN'S RECOVERY PROJECT. And in contrast to BUCK GOOTER, instead of screaming and yelling, Billy's actually singing and he's good at it! Yeah, as said before: KILLER! http://candidatedemo.bandcamp.com/

CANDIES- Dense Waves Make Your Eyes Wider - CD - NOISEDELUXE

Italian band playing Indie/Noise-Post-Punk that could be easily filed next to all those THE bands (like Strokes, Vines, etc...), but these 3 guys have also eaten up a good portion of DC-influences (being comparable to Q AND NOT U) and have surely heard of the PIXIES as well! www.candies.it

CAP PAS CAP- We Are Men - 12" - SKINNY WOLVES RECORDS

click to enlarge New record by this irish band who released their stunning debut "Not Not Is Fine" EP in 2006. Here they return with a new song called "We Are Men" that tops all of their previous stuff! This 4-track EP opens with the original version of the song, an uptempo No-Wave hit in the vein of bands like DELTA 5, AU PAIRS or PYLON, based on a big, fat pulsating funk-bass riff! Additionally on this 12" are 3 remix-versions of this song then: An electro-pop remix by JAPE with bouncing drum-machines and looped vocals, THAT BOY TIM adds funky guitar-sounds to his remix, and DECAL remixes the song into a heavy and dark industrial space-rock sounding thing, kinda like "GODFLESH on Punk"! Limited edition of 500 copies on black premium 150g-vinyl with full-color sleeves! www.myspace.com/cappascap

CASH FOR YOUR STORIES- Hold Your Ground - 7" - ANDIS FRIENDS RECORDS

click to enlarge Debut-EP by this band from Manchester/UK, with convincing and strong Hardcore-Punk! Reminiscent of 90s bands like FABRIC or THATCHER ON ACID, this band offers a sound that could be described as being equally influenced by the early MINUTEMEN, the FREEZE and LEATHERFACE but delivered with a lot more energy than what LEATHERFACE had been coming up with lately! www.myspace.com/cashforyourstories

CAT PARTY- Rhapsody In Black - LP - SABOTAGE RECORDS

click to enlarge 2nd album by this band from Orange County. 11 tracks, incl. a cover-version of the WIPERS's "Tragedy". New Wave/Post-Punk like back in the 80s, mostly comparable to bands like the COMSAT ANGELS or early SIMPLE MINDS. Actually I don't really understand all the fuzz and hype about this band. Their music sounds just exactly the same like a thousand others from the early 80s. And they're not even good at it: The sound is thin and flat, missing volume and punch, the songs are unmemorable, and the vocals are horribly lame.

CAT PARTY- split with CUT CITY - 7" - MONOTONSTUDIO

click to enlarge Features a new track by Swedish Neo-Post-Punk heroes CUT CITY, shared with CAT PARTY from California on the other side. Fits pretty perfectly, since CAT PARTY are heavily influenced by the likes of ECHO & THE BUNNYMEN, THE SOUND and similar early-80s Post-Punk/Wave...
