Our latest release has risen from the grave! We have partnered with Portland City noise punk extremists Lebenden Toten to release the track they wrote and recorded for our debut 2014 compilation, Whispers Through the Black Veil, as a limited edition flexi 7" single with beautiful full-color artwork and lyrics! At The Window is a haunted declaration of unheeded warning and ear blistering tribal convictions in the crasher crust tradition. Due to very limited supply, please limit one copy per order.

Unfortunately we cannot export these flexis to Japan. Japanese customers please contact Overthrow Records.


Our take: Brand new limited, 1-song flexi from this long-running band, and while it’s been a while since I’ve checked in with LT I feel like it has a slightly different vibe than their previous releases. I remember LT being pretty much straight up total Confuse / Gai-style noise punk… sure, they’ve always been on the artsier end of that spectrum, but At the Window seems much more measured and deliberate than I remember them being. What’s particularly interesting is that not much has changed about their sound. The guitar still sounds like a dentist drill, the bass still carries the melody, and the vocals still punctuate everything with short, percussive bursts of sound, but rather than the music sounding wild and unhinged it now sounds measured, atmospheric, and downright creepy. It’s not really goth, but something else entirely, a melding of genres I don’t think that I’ve heard before. Maybe some of the best Deathcharge stuff is broadly in this vein, but the application of noise-punk production and dynamics to this style strikes me as really original and exciting. This has me very, very intrigued as to what the band’s upcoming full-length is going to be like, but regardless I have a feeling “At the Window” is going to be a track I return to often.
