DUDS- Of A Nature Or Degree - LP - CASTLE FACE RECORDS

click to enlarge Debut album from Manchester Post-Punk band DUDS. Actually sounding like they could've been an early 80s band from either Edinburgh or Bristol as well... That means: Their sound is reminiscent of bands like the FIRE ENGINES and JOSEF K, but as well of MAXIMUM JOY and ELECTRIC GUITARS. But with an inventive approach and variation, being experimental (in the widest and best sense) in similar veins as the MEKONS, THE EX or XTC. https://dudsdudsduds.bandcamp.com/album/of-a-nature-or-degree

This new album, available as double-vinyl set with download-code included or as a simple CD, contains 10 new songs. From raging Garage-Pop smashers over Glam-Rock to psychedelic Noise monsters.

PRETTIEST EYES- Pools - LP - CASTLE FACE RECORDS

click to enlarge Pretty amazing band from Los Angeles! Punching Post-Punk, that's as psychic, paranoid and crazed out as it's supposed to be. And flavoured with crushing synth-sounds, their music can be described as a melange of roots and vibes deriving from bands like SCREAMERS, SUICIDE, SAVAGE REPUBLIC as well as BIRTHDAY PARTY. https://prettiesteyes.bandcamp.com/

RUNNING- Wake Up Applauding - LP - CASTLE FACE RECORDS

click to enlarge 3rd full album by these maniacs from Chicago. 10 songs that can be filed as "Garage-Noise-Rock", but with a sound of their own. Delivered loudly, with lots of distortion, abrasive and aggressively blasting and relentlessly hammering non-stop action. Psychotic and outrageous stuff, somewhere in between the CRAMPS, BUTTHOLE SURFERS and ARAB ON RADAR... LP with download-code. https://soundcloud.com/runningband
