All That New New From Bandcamp

Got a lot of new stuff tonight, a few of the labels I follow opened their floodgates this month. Prepare to rock: all of what follows is killer action. From Negative Fun Records, this new four song e.p. from Daddy Issues is available on limited edition smokey pink tape shell cassette for $5. I don't care for the cassette revival myself, but I understand they're easy and cheap to put out. I have boxes of those hissy, worthless things in the closet and nothing to play them on. Still, this is cool: Double Loser by Daddy IssuesCrapoulet Records has this awesome available as pay what thou wilt. 47 punk songs that average 45 seconds a piece, nothing comes too close to the two minute mark. Whoa! Histoire Incomplète TAPE by Crapoulet recordsNew Orleans' Buck Biloxi and the Fucks have their first album digitally available, dl for $10: Buck Biloxi and the Fucks by Buck Biloxi and the FucksOld Manx pals Postcode have a new Limited Edition CD-R available. 7 songs for what I thi…

Jason over at the awesome 7inches blog has been busy with his Sweaters & Pearls label. Here's some cool vinyl he has for sale: "You Are Not Going To Heaven" is a 2011 six song e.p. from Brooklyn band Soccer Mom, on really beautiful white vinyl, courtesy Sweaters and Pearls and 100m Records. Good Sonic Youth-esque rock, $13 bucks and shipping. I'm serious about that white vinyl, it is exquisite looking. Soccer Mom: "Natural History"Soccer Mom: "Natural History"Reminds me a little of The Trouble with Sweeney cover of Listen To What the Man Says: These 45s are all $5 and shipping from Sweaters and Pearls: Fat History Month is from the Boston area. Sweaters and Pearls is running out of this 7", recorded in 2009. The last thirty copies are hand-painted. Sweet mustard yellow vinyl. Here's my fave of the four tracks: Fat History Month: "Heart Takes A Beating"Fat History Month: "Heart Takes A Beating"Sweaters and…

I like this new psych-pop from Marshalltown, Iowa. You can order the 12" yellow vinyl of Land of Blood and Sunshine's Aeon from Very Nice Dementia: AEONS by Land of Blood and SunshineI was reading the Wikipedia page for Marshalltown, Iowa, because I was like, what's up with there? And it said one of the town's notable exports is a band called Modern Life Is War, who I've never heard of, but this sounds cool: Synchronicity: I read on Bremen's Sabotage Records newsletter that band Terrible Feelings new LP Tremors will be out in April, just in time for their tour with the aforementioned Modern Life is War. Here's something else cool from Sabotage, coming out in March: La Urss: Maravillas del mundo LP by sabotagerecordsYou can pre-order Limited Edition Red Shell Cassettes of this sweet action from Negative Fun Records, run out of North Carolina and New Hampshire. Unlearn Everything by Midnight Plus OneGermany's Tramp Rec is in the habit of re-iss…

Savageheads, G.L.O.S.S., Glazed Baby, Clara Engel, Lucern Raze, HOLY, No Love

This great punk EP from Boston's Savageheads was released last June, but I just found out about them through CNQ's favorite Croatian distro, Doomtown Records, who has the mp3s for sale for $2 and change - they may have the vinyl too, I'm not sure. Doesn't look like anyone else on the Internet does. Savageheads - S/T 7" by SavageheadsThis transgender hc awesomeness from Olympia has a 7" in the works. It's pay what thou wilt for mp3s in the meantime. Dig that d-beat: DEMO by G.L.O.S.S.I feel like I mighta shared this already, but just in case, it bears repeating. These Rhode Island noise punks recorded this in 1996, and then more was added a couple of years later. It's their last recording and Providence's Atomic Action released it onto the web, 10 songs for $5. Oh man, it's awesome: Ancient Chinesse Secret by Glazed BabyCNQ's favorite Toronto-based singer-songwriter has two new rad tracks available for $2 USD. I don't think I…
