Added a bunch of new Dirt Cult Releases to the store today. Let’s see, first a couple of tapes:
CRUSADES – THE SUN IS DOWN AND THE NIGHT IS RIDING IN TAPE
One of my favorite releases of 2011 (LP on Its Alive/Razorcake). Anti-Christian, pro-human pop punk from Ottawa (home of everything awesome). Absolutely essential listening. Limited to 250 tapes with alternate cover art. Shipping now!
LOW CULTURE – DEMO TAPE (repress)
Repress (on professionally made tapes) of the Low Culture demo from Dirt Cult/Dead Broke. Catchy garage pop from members of Shang-A-Lang.
Also, I’ve got three new records up for pre-order (shipping in August, but download codes will be sent immediately). (I’ve got a couple pre-order packages up in addition to the option to pre-order individually. You can get all three records for $21 (saving 20%) and you can also get the Sundowners Gnome & Glacier LP and new 7″ for $11 (saving 20%). Just click either “specials” or “Dirt Cult Releases” when in the store.)
AUTONOMY – THE ART OF WORK IN THE AGE OF DIGITAL REPRODUCTION LP
Dark and atomospheric anarcho-punk. This shit sounds like Joy Division and The Mob all at the same time. They’re from Carbondale and feature local hero Ray Suburbia. Honestly, this is one of my favorite Dirt Cult releases ever. So happy to be apart of putting this out. First 100 on blue vinyl.
MUHAMMADALI – S/T 12″
This Houston band has been around forever, but aside from their recent split with Unfun on A.D.D. records, hasn’t done any official releases. I’ve like them for a while, but the absolutely floored me at last year’s Awesome Fest, prompting me to immediately seek them out and ask them to do a record. I think these dudes do a lot of drugs. Imagine old Flaming Lips and Butthole Surfers mixed with Hickey, but not the poppy side of Hickey that most bands tend to emulate…more like the wacked out stoner stuff that I always sorta prefered. First 100 on yellow vinyl.
SUNDOWNERS – S/T 7″
Follow up to their great (and extremely underappreciated) LP on Dirt Cult a few years ago, Sundowners play hooky DIY punk for fans of bands like Frozen Teens, Future Virgins, and The Bananas. This is somehow better than the LP. Art by Justin Francis. First 100 on opaque yellow vinyl.
