ANA THREAT- Cold Lve - LP - CUT SURFACE

click to enlarge First full album (10 songs) by this one-wonderwoman-band from Vienna. A shamanistic pop-album drawing sounds from lo-fi garage, sci-fi trash and tribalistic rhythms. As "retro" as this may seem, it's completely the opposite, creating a whole new world of her own with individual expressions! The only comparison that comes to my mind is the very first JULIE RUIN (Kathleen Hanna) album, but Ana Threat is performing in her own universe here.
LP with download-code included. https://cutsurface.bandcamp.com/

BRUCH- The Lottery - LP - CUT SURFACE

click to enlarge The highly anticipated 3rd full album (13 songs, LP with download-code included)! It's Synth-Pop, Post-Punk, Dark Wave, and goes beyond all that. A fantastic album, that's challenging, distressed, demonic, upbeat, urgent and first class entertainment. Forget David Bowie! Forget Alan Vega! Here's Bruch, the new King of Low Frequency... (pun intended!)

DAZED PILOTS- K.T.F.T. - LP - CUT SURFACE

click to enlarge Surprising second LP by this rocking twopiece from Austria. Filled with 9 tracks, ranging from angry Punk, over trashy Garage Blues Rock, and KBD Proto-Punk, to blistering Glam-Pop. With all the sentiments required for making it a great album. Nasty, adrenalin-fuelled and vibrating! References: DOO RAG, WHITE STRIPES, or any other simple but full-on effectively and excellently rocking twopiece.

DINO SPILUTTINI- To Be A Beast - LP - CUT SURFACE

click to enlarge Limited edition of 300 copies on green vinyl, incl. download-code! An epic album with 12 tracks. No songs, but sound-sculptures. Deep and rich sweeping drones and vibrant ambient melancholy, somehow comparable to his compatriot fellow FENNESZ... https://cutsurface.bandcamp.com/album/to-be-a-beast

IMPOSITION MAN- s/t - MC+MP3 - CUT SURFACE

click to enlarge Limited edition cassette release of 100 copies, with download-code included. Contains 7 songs of homerecording Cold Wave inspired Synth-Punk. Actually not from Vienna, two guys from Berlin resp. Graz, but fitting perfectly well into the CUT SURFACE catalog, with a somewhat similar sound and approach like BRUCH... https://cutsurface.bandcamp.com/album/imposition-man

LONESOME HOT DUDES - Obey/Books - 7" - CUT SURFACE

click to enlarge Beautiful single by this feminist AND fun band from Graz/Austria! Yes, these LONESOME HOT DUDES are five ladies, actually including Eva Ursprung and Reni Hofmüller, both already active in the pioneering avantgarde/impro group "rosi lebt" back in the early 1980s! And their passionate and political Post-Punk/No Wave music's not too far away from swiss legends LiLiPUT. Comes with an insert featuring the lyrics, and one handpicked photo of the band. https://cutsurface.bandcamp.com/album/obey

MELT DOWNER- s/t - 2X12" - CUT SURFACE

click to enlarge Features members of MILE ME DEAF, but here going for a full-on striking, excessively loud and hard hitting kind of psychedelic Noise-Rock! Fueled by fuzzy guitars, a thundering bass and manic drumming, all combined to a wickedly sonic trip. Outstanding! Double-12"vinyl, packed in a gatefold-cover, including download-code. https://cutsurface.bandcamp.com/album/melt-downer

POSTMAN- Home - LP - CUT SURFACE

click to enlarge New full album (12 songs) by this Austrian band. Their quiet and soft Minimal-Pop sound is reminiscent of the YOUNG MARBLE GIANTS, and they're using texts from authors like Gertrude Stein, Milan Kundera, Harold Pinter, Walter Benjamin, G.K. Chesterton, and more.
Limited edition of 300 copies on 180g-vinyl, with printed innersleeve and download-code. https://cutsurface.bandcamp.com/album/home

THE TELLY- Why Not? - 12"+MP3 - CUT SURFACE

click to enlarge Limited edition 3Song-EP, 300 copies with download-code included. THE TELLY aka Martin Gupper from Vienna delivers top-sounding Dance-Pop, taking ingredients from Deep House, Dub, Psychedelia and 60s Pop. I'm far from being an expert when it comes to this kind of music, but sounds to me like a raving dancefloor-smasher and supersmart pop-songs! Great! https://cutsurface.bandcamp.com/album/why-not
