Sheer Mag - Compilation LP

added by Alex Deller on Saturday April 8 2017 in New Releases

Static Shock (or Wilsuns RC, if you're stateside) have just released a compilation LP from the wonderful Sheer Mag. Here's the skinny: "Sheer Mag's Compilation LP features the Philadelphia rock band's three seven-inches, released between 2014 and 2016. All twelve songs were recorded onto the same vintage 8-track tape machine, carted to various locations around Philadelphia. The first two were produced in a makeshift studio wedged between two bedrooms in the band's former South Philly house, while the third came out of a practice space in the Port Richmond neighbourhood. Sequenced chronologically, the newly remastered songs reveal a young DIY band finding its sound."

Next up from Static Shock will be a 7" from arch snarkers Sarcasm and a new LP from Sievehead. Cool.

The second LP from Endless Grinning Skulls, entitled 'Risus Sardonicus', is out now via Viral Age. You can expect some searing, vengeful hardcore punk from it, I would imagine.

Saligia - 'The New Innocence' 10"

added by Alex Deller on Monday April 3 2017 in New Releases

A newie out via IFB. Says they: "Members of Republic of Dreams, Lentic Waters, Resurrectionists, Apoplexy Twist Orchestra and many others bring you a new dose of swirling intense emo-violent chaos with powerful screamed vocals, meaningful and important lyrics, and enough 'Chaos Is Me'-era Orchid influence to please us punks that want our emo foul and furious and intent on smashing all oppression. Fight back."
