Lots of killer new stuff in today from ISS, Iron Lung Records, Strul, Fit for Abuse, and more!
As usual we got a big stack of mail this Monday, and here's the rundown on what we have for you!
First up is probably the release I'm most excited about, the new ISS cassette! In case you don't remember, ISS is Rich Ivey from Whatever Brains and Eddie Schneider from Brain F≠, and they take drum breaks from punk records and construct their own new compositions out of them. The music is absolutely great, but I like the lyrics even more... Whatever Brains lyrics were great, but ISS is even more chock-full of in-jokes for punk nerds and biting satire of the contemporary scene. ISS's stuff always sells out super fast, so I would jump on it now if you want a copy:
Next up we have two more new releases from the great Iron Lung Records! There's the new LP from No Faith, but I'm even more excited about the debut LP from Iceland's DAUÐYFLIN, who play some seriously inventive hardcore that's just as rooted in Iceland's long tradition of wild art-punk.
Next up we have reissues of unreleased material by 90s Boston hardcore bright spots Fit for Abuse!
Next up is a reissue of some cool, vintage post-punk recordings from early 80s Barcelona! Lots of super obscure stuff for those who like to dig deep into the post-punk well:
Finally we have a couple of new releases on Sweden's great Ken Rock Records. First up is the debut LP from Sweden's Strul, who play killer early 80s-style hardcore... you may remember we also carried their debut 7" a while back (and as of right now we still have a couple in stock):
And we'll end things with the new 7" from Punk Ekman, which is a solo project from Joni from the Achtungs. That guy has a real ear for classic punk melodies (as anyone who has listened to the Achtungs knows), and this 7" delivers just as hard as his main band:
We also grabbed some restocks and some other titles from these labels, so hit up the new arrivals section and find even more!
