In today: Exotica LP, Subhumans reissues, Blue Dolphin tapes and a lot more!
As is often the case on Monday, we have quite a few goodies for you! First up is the debut LP from New York's Exotica! Y'all bought a whole lot of copies of their demo tape (both when it was on cassette and when it was later pressed to vinyl, which we just restocked), so I know you're hyped for this LP:
In addition to the Exotica LP, we also have two brand new demos from La Vida Es Un Mus. First up is New York's HVAC:
And then there's the demo from London's Nekra::
I'm also very stoked to have the entire back catalog by the UK Subhumans back in stock! We used to stock these regularly, but I guess that Bluurg Records let these records go out of print for a while and/or lost some of their US distribution. However, they're back in print (at least for now), and you can pick all of them up here. We also recently got in a reissue of Crass's The Feeding of the 5,000 on vinyl, so hopefully we'll see more wax from the Southern Records-affiliated camp (i.e. more Crass, Rudimentary Peni, etc.) soon!
We'll finish things up with a trio of cassette releases from Austin, Texas's Blue Dolphin, which features members of Mystic Inane, Patsy, Institute, and Nosferatu. Blue Dolphin don't really sound like any of those bands... in fact they don't really sound much like anyone else! They do have a sort of countrified hardcore punk thing happening that reminds me a little bit of something like Really Red in places, but really this is its own beast, which is a very, very good thing.
Note: this YouTube embed is for one of the three tapes... the other two should show up in the related videos... they're all similar but well worth checking out in my estimation!
In addition to those we also got in a few other odds and ends over the past few days... a cool power-pop single from Dancer, the new King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard album, and a few other things, so dig in!
