COMFORT- Eclipse - CD - PSYCHOTICA RECORDS

click to enlarge Instrumental Post-Rock from Italy with progressive and jazzy swinging elements. Kind of a nocturnal and melancholic slow-rock soundtrack, lasting over 7 tracks with a full playing-time of 39 minutes. Released in 2006. www.psychoticarecords.com

CORPUS CHRISTIE- II - LP - JEET KUNE RECORDS

click to enlarge From Roma/Italy featuring Christina of CAPUTTINI I LIGNU, Tina of the INTELLECTUALS/FELT-UPS, and the american banjo-player Sam Crawford. Playing traditionally styled Country/Folk-Pop songs with a weird twisted and charming LoFi-appeal. Recorded with lots of guest-musicians like Julie (ex-CRASH NORMAL), Miss Chain, Sophia Travis, violinist Elodie Moreau, and more! www.jeetkunerecords.com

CRYSTAL ANTLERS- Tentacles - CD - TOUCH&GO

click to enlarge Debut full-length album! The label-info cites tons of references from 60s-bands like MUSIC MACHINE, over GURU GURU to BLUE CHEER, and tons more... Could be said also that they're similar to MARS VOLTA, more rocking than ANIMAL COLLECTIVE, and because of the overtly dominant organ, reminding of the DOORS as well... (New, shrinkwrapped copy!)

DAS BUNCH- Favorite Son - 7" - WHOSBRAIN RECORDS

click to enlarge Another band from Metz/France, but in contrast to most other bands from that area (ANALS, FEELING OF LOVE, etc.) they are no Garage-Rockers. Instead they incorporate elements of Noise-Rock and Post-Hardcore into the sound of their 5 energetic songs. On the same label that had released the SCUL HAZZARDS LPs, what may give you an idea... www.myspace.com/dasbunch

DEPRESSIVE STATE- Total Annihilation - 7" - PRÜGELPRINZ RECORDS

click to enlarge German Hardcore-band, influenced by the early BLACK FLAG and MINOR THREAT, and sounding pretty close to FUCKED UP as on their early EPs! Limited edition on white vinyl.

DES ARK- Don't Rock The Boat, Sink The Fucker - CD - LOVITT

click to enlarge The 2nd full-length album by Aimee Argote & her friends! 8 songs, ranging from softly sweet ballads with acoustic instrumentation to fully-orchestrated and rocking songs. Actually pretty much in the same vein as MIRAH or THAO... NEW sealed/still shrinkwrapped copy! http://desark.org/

EDIBLE WOMAN- Spare Me - CD - PSYCHOTICA RECORDS

click to enlarge First full album by italian Noise-Rock band from 2004. Key-references here are FUGAZI, KEPONE and most of all SHELLAC – but with their own identity and character in their sound (and not only because they use a saxophone as an additional element).

EJECTOR SEATS- Say Sorry (sliced cover) - LP - COLLISION COURSE RECORDS

click to enlarge First album by Californian band (and not to be confused with a british band by the same name). Contains 12 raging tracks, that sound like a terrific mix of classic, raw and snotty 77-Punk (think of bands like the KILLJOYS or early STIFF LITTLE FINGERS), with early American Hardcore (NAKED RAYGUN maybe...), blistering Garage-Rock, and armed with a high potential for catchy songwriting! Limited edition on splattered multi-colored vinyl, and packed into a nice gatefold-cover!!! http://collisioncourserecords.bandcamp.com/ During transport vinyls bounced against the top of the sleeves, and sliced it up for about 6cm... Returning it back to the USA doesn't make sense, so we're trying to sell these at a bargain.

EL GUAPO- Super System - CD - DISCHORD

click to enlarge Electronic-Rock on DISCHORD... an eclectic release, in between Pop and Avantgarde, or in between TRANS AM, TALKING HEADS and THIS HEAT... (VINYL is out of print!)
NEW sealed copy!

EL GUINCHO- Pop Negro - CD

click to enlarge 2nd full album by EL GUINCHO alias Pablo Diaz-Reixa, who is also a member of the great band COCONOT from Barcelona. 9 tracks of Tropical Dance-Pop! Think of something in between MANU CHAO, MICHAEL JACKSON and VAMPIRE WEEKEND, with a strong afro-latino flair! Filed in our stocks here next to the EL GUAPO LPs, which fits pretty well.
NEW unplayed copy!
