New releases from Iron Lung Records in now!
Here's a package we've been REALLY amped for... the new releases from Iron Lung Records! Here's a quick rundown:
First up is the new LP from the UK's Bad Breeding! Their previous self-released 12"s was one of our favorite records of last year, and I couldn't be more stoked for the follow-up, particularly since they've found the perfect US label home in ILR:
Next up we have probably my most anticipated record of the bunch, the debut 7" from San Francisco punks Mozart! We carried Mozart's demo cassette a while back, and this 7" is even better. They literally sound like nothing I've ever heard before... maybe imagine Wretched jamming on some free jazz, or vice versa? This is about as far from cookie-cutter punk as you get, and I'm complete addicted to the feeling of reckless abandon captured on this record. Oh, and in a nice little touch every copy of the record is individually hand-painted:
Next up there's the new LP from Behavior. I remember their previous material being very abstract and difficult, but this new LP strikes me as downright accessible without losing the forward-thinking artiness that characterizes much of the ILR roster. I strongly recommend giving this one a listen:
And then there's the reissue of the Blinded album by the mighty Cold Sweat. This one seemed to disappear in an instant the first time around, so it's nice to see it back in print.
And finally, wrapping up this embarrassment of riches is a new cassette of radio sessions by Brazil's almighty Rakta!
