A horrible hack

Garden Variety box set

added by Alex Deller on Tuesday September 3 2019 in Pre-orders

Arctic Rodeo are taking pre-orders for a lavish and lovingly-compiled Garden Variety discography package. The three-LP set comes with a 12-page booklet and "several fan goodie surprises." The thing comes housed in a wooden box, which makes you think the label might've missed a trick by not calling it the garden shed edition.

Thigh Master - new LP

added by Andy Malcolm on Friday August 30 2019 in New Releases

Brisbane , Australia-based quartet Thigh Master are back with the second LP Now for Example - the follow up to their 2016 debut Early Times. Ragged, jangly guitar riffs interspersed with waves of distorted sonic mischief recall the late 80s/early 90s Flying Nun sound of the Clean, Bats and 3Ds.

Now for Example comes out worldwide September 27, 2019 on Goner Records. Catch Thigh Master on their US tour in September and October, and in Europe soon after.

The Body remixes LP

added by Alex Deller on Friday August 9 2019 in New Releases

Quite why a band as miserable as The Body are 'celebrating' 20 years of existence is anyone's guess, but that is what they are doing with an upcoming remixes LP. It features contributions from the likes of Lingua Ignota, Moor Mother, Mark Solotroff and Andy Nolan and will be out on October 11 via Thrill Jockey Records.

Iron Age - 'The Sleeping Eye' reissue

added by Alex Deller on Friday August 9 2019 in Reissues

20 Buck Spin Records are doing a very honourable thing and reissuing Iron Age's amazing 'The Sleeping Eye' LP to celebrate the album's 10th anniversary. Somewhere on this site I compared it to Cro Mags meets 'Ride The Lightning', and it should come as no surprise that the band were a formative influence on Power Trip. It'll be out in October, but you can check the thing out before then by following the link below.
