BPR010: Hot Guts – Edges LP

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

Listen to additional sound samples here

Edges is the long anticipated debut album from Philly’s Hot Guts (founded in 2007 by frontman Wes Russell and drummer Greg Frantz as a sonic reflection of the rotting urban hell hole that surrounded them). Previous releases included a 7” on Badmaster Records, a cassette, and a split 7” with NY’s Pop. 1280.

Edges is a perfect blend of sullen and morose post-punk, catchy synthwave, and industrial nihilism that is somehow overshadowed by a sense of a youthful optimism that spits in the face of overwhelming tragedy. Comparisons could certainly be made to bands like Savage Republic (Tragic Figures era) or Cop Shoot Cop, but they would have to be tapered with the side of things that could fit seamlessly alongside classic early Factory Records bands. Ultimately, these comparisons are useless since Edges is a solid album that really just needs to be listened to start to finish.

Russell and Frantz were joined on this recording by Philly musicians Michael Reaser (FNU Ronnies), and Adam Cooper (Tickly Feather). Edges also features contributions from legendary Philly-based experimental musician Charles Cohen (on the Buchla Box), and the lovely Miss Shari Vari (AKA Void Vision).

Edges is available as a deluxe gatefold edition and comes with a free digital download. First 100 mailorder copies come on clear vinyl.

BE SURE TO CATCH THE RELEASE SHOW ON 5/25/12 AT WIERD (131 Chrystie St. – in New York) Band plays at midnight. Also playing will be SGNLS who also have an upcoming release later this year on Blind Prophet Records.

BPR011: Future Blondes – Feather 17 LP

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

Listen to additional sound samples here

Feather 17 is the first proper full-length vinyl album from Houston’s Future Blondes and comes following a long and sordid trail of tapes, cd-rs, and 12”s on labels like Dull Knife, FLA, and Robert & Leopold.

Mastermind Domokos (also known for his drumwork in Texas noise-punk legends RUSTED SHUT, live bass/tape manipulations for HELIOS CREED/CHROME as CHEMICAL MANGE, and appearences w/ BLACK LEATHER JESUS) serves up another heavy batch of mutated white-light techno/industrial with contributions from members of BOOK OF SHADOWS, //TENSE//, BALACLAVAS, TWISTED WIRESS, and SYNB.

Pressed on milky white vinyl and comes with a digital download. First 50 mailorder copies come on black vinyl with special alternate handnumbered and handglued artwork with a bonus DVD of visuals to accompany the album.
