Those crazy mad fools at Dead Tank have put a bunch of their stuff up as pay-what-thou-will treats on bandcamp. May we suggest select choices by Hexis and The South?
In one of those odd things that happens now and again where Rev decide to put out a record by a good emo band that no-one will buy (see: End of a Year, On the Might of Princes), they are going to do an LP for Fell to Low. This is what Fell to Low's last record sounded like (basically: brooding mid 90s rumblings).
Originally released back in 1998, the tenth album from weirdo punk maestros NoMeansNo is getting the reissue treatment as of 28th April. It'll come as a 2xLP on 180 gram vinyl with a download card.
Touch & Go are reissuing the two legendary 7"s from The Fix: "Vengeance / In This Town" and "Jan's Rooms." They'll be doubled up in a two-pocket vinyl gatefold wallet, printed as per the originals. Doesn't that make those of us who bought the discog LP from a few years back look silly, etc.
Long dormant Norwegian label Lilla Himmel is risen! Modern Love have provided the label with a 4 song 7". Post punk things. Give it a whirl, I'm liking what I'm hearing.
Well, Jazz June had their moment in the emo revival sun for approximately 30 seconds, cos then SDRE revealed they are doing a new song too. It is called Lipton Witch and will be released on a 7" on the worst day of the year, "Record Store Day", seriously, fuck that shit, just put out a record and let people buy it if they want it instead of turning it into a headless chicken chase for coloured vinyl. Good grief, what a load of old bollocks. Anyway, I don't know who is releasing this record. The split is with a band called Circa Survive who I have just listened to for a minute or two and they are entirely dreadful, they sound like band trying to rip off SDRE but don't get it. Joy.
Veteran emotion merchants, the Jazz June, have gone and done a new song and it is coming out on a split 7" with Dikembe. There will be further releases by JJ later this year.
