BPR014: YOU. – Brick LP

Listen to sound samples here

Brick is the brand new LP from Brooklyn (via Detroit)’s YOU. It’s also the final bedroom recording album. Recorded in the winter 2010-2011, it serves as a fitting epitaph to this era of the band and contains some of their finest recordings to date. This is absolutely top shelf minimal synth/electro that even includes a Negative Approach cover for all the punks out there.

Strictly limited to 200 copies – each record comes with a unique found photograph adhered to the back cover with scenes from Detroit’s past. Respect.

BPR012: SGNLS – SGNLS LP

Listen to sound samples here

Finally a proper synth punk band! Philly’s SGNLS follow in the tradition of bands like The Units rather than bands that are merely labeled “punk” by the distinction that they cannot play their synths properly. Live they are capable of synth heavy freakouts not dissimilar from Hawkwind or Heldon, whereas on record they reel it in a bit and show us some real solid songs that should appeal to fans of everything ranging from The Screamers to The Big Boys.

Limited to 200 copies and comes with a fold out poster.

BPR010: Hot Guts – Edges LP

Listen to 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. 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. [CLEAR VINYL EDITION SOLD OUT]

BPR011: Future Blondes – Feather 17 LP

Listen to 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. [SPECIAL EDITION SOLD OUT]
