THE NUMBER ONES s/t LP/CD (DY256)
The Number Ones (AKA THE #1s) will take you to power pop heaven with their razor sharp 10 track self titled debut album. They are a Dublin based four-piece featuring members of Cian Nugent and The Cosmos (Matador / No Quarter), Cheap Freaks (Big Neck), Strong Boys (Milk Run), and The Pacifics (Bachelor). Even though they are based in Dublin, they sound like a classic Good Vibrations band from 1979. The Number Ones have energy, passion and tunes so good, it makes you think you’ve heard them already. Each track is a golden nugget of power pop fun that never outlasts it’s welcome as every track is under three minutes. Although this sort of music seems to have been done a million times before, it sounds fresh in the hands of The Number Ones. This is pure summer fun for fans of Rudi, Protex, Exploding Hearts, Buzzcocks and The Tranzmitors.” 7.9 on Pitchfork if that means anything to anyone. European pressing is on Static Shock. They are doing a short East Coast tour of the USA in October.
NEIGHBORHOOD BRATS recovery LP/CD (DY254)
Here’s the first proper full length album by this California powerhouse. After a slew of singles and EPs, this Long Beach, CA based quartet develop their style of aggressive Dangerhouse Records meets early 80s SoCal Hardcore even further. Yes, the L.A. Times called them a “female fronted BLACK FLAG” – it’s that band. 12 new cuts of pre-Reagan, post-neutron bomb hardcore punk.
HASSLER fed, worked, and watered LP (DY257)
Hardcore punk band from Toronto Canada founded in 2012. Featuring a very long x members list from bands you may know from the past blah blah won’t bore you with that. After releasing a 7” ep on schizophrenic records and a follow up on beach impediment records, the band’s sound is fully realized on this new LP for deranged/cut the cord that. A furious mash up of hardcore punk sounds from the past with no concern for current trends. Vocalist Jay Chisamore delivers the goods through 16 storming tracks. No 10 minute nowadays style hc “mini lp” here but a full length lp of unrelenting and enraged HC done for real.
THE NEW FLESH the absurd LP (DY252)
Hailing from Oakland, California, The New Flesh delivers driving, melodic dark post-punk with the speed and aggression of hardcore. These somber but upbeat songs deal with issues of the personal, political and an intersection of both: alienation within the context of capitalism. Featuring members of Neon Piss, Deskonocidos, and Vaaska,
TOTAL ABUSE looking for love 7” (DY253)
Total Abuse, the ugly boys from Texas return after a two year hiatus with Looking For Love, a 3 track 7” EP ...Expect dissonant, debased, sleaze filled dirgy hell tunes… You either love them or hate them but you know to expect the filthiest ear shredding hardcore around. Looking For Love is the a search for forgiveness through the trash filled alley ways and underbelly of a seedy Texas city… Cover art by Jamie Fletcher… Back cover and an incredible illustrated 10 page booklet by Matthew Bellosi. Mastered by Dan Randall of Mammoth Sounds.
VOIGHT-KAMPFF last house on the right b/w little dyings 7” (DY259)
The first new VK recording in 3 years and what a gem it is. Now residing in separate states, Sulier and Swanson-White return with two new dark moody tracks rooted in punk but definitely post-punk in delivery. “Last House on the Right” is the definitive standout of the two with Swanson-White’s new-wavy guitar rhythm combined with for Sulier’s baritone vocals, making this a one of the better post punk track of 2014. Unfortunately it’s only two songs but with any luck we’ll see a new album in 2015.
RED DONS a vote for the unknown 7” (DY260)
A Vote for the Unknown is a collaborative effort between punk legend TV SMITH and the RED DONS. The former ADVERTS front man provides the lyrics and vocals to music recorded by the Red Dons. Tracked in a Swedish bomb shelter and mixed by Hajji Husayn at the NORTH LONDON BOMB FACTORY, A Vote for the Unknown is a must have for any ADVERTS fan looking for one more offering from TV SMITH backed by a punk band.
LIFE LIKE savages 7” (DY251)
Life Like’s debut EP, Savages, opens with the force of a Mack truck driven by a bull, hellbent and dead set on demolishing the china shop in his crosshairs. As raw and primal as the EP’s name implies, the no-frills, thunderous introductory breakdown sets the tone for what is to come as the rest of the six-track offering continues to pummel its listeners into submission, alternating to and from high-speed fury and catastrophic end-of-the-world mosh. From the album’s grimy-as-fuck cover art (by Martin “Lumpy” Meyer) to the music’s thick, dirty production, the entire affair is exactly as real as true hardcore should be: No bullshit, no marathon songs, no posers allowed. Music to riot to and songs for smashing your fist into the wall until all you pull back is a bleeding shapeless stump. Savage indeed. Words by Daniel Hill.
CROSS a vote for the unknown 7” (DY258)
CROSS is an swedish punk musical duo, active since 2012 and composed of vocalist and drummer from now long gone Masshysteri. Their unholy meltdown of punk and free jazz blast through this two-song 7” in a blindingly bright and blazingly hard demeanor. Trebly noisy guitars, machine-driven drums and vocals crawling on top of each other to be heard, make up this duo’s subterranean sounding debut.
