STOIC VIOLENCE ‘chained’ 12”
The return of California’s STOIC VIOLENCE comes in the form of 8 new songs pressed on the always great 12” 45rpm format, housed in a gatefold jacket featuring some sick art from LA artist Austin Delgadilo.  The 8 songs on ‘CHAINED’ are mean, ugly, and punishing.  Record comes out in mid/late May, on black vinyl only.  This is a split release with Video Disease.

NO PROBLEM ‘already dead’ LP
New album from Edmonton’s NO PROBLEM. After their stellar debut they deliver a sophomore full-length that takes their frustrated and paranoid hardcore-punk to a new level. Still taking cues from BLACK FLAG, D.O.A. or TSOL, they add darker and more melodic elements to the mix. This is music for maladjusted adults who are too old to be able to relate to teenage problems, but whose feelings of alienation have in no way withered with age, and are looking for something that musically and lyrically captures the frustration of adult punk life. NO PROBLEM effectively fusing hardcore with catchy yet aggressive or paranoid melody.
They are going on their 2nd European this in May with Voight Kampff.

VOIGHT KAMPF
VK have a new 7” coming out this summer and an album later in the year.  They are also touring Europe this May with NO PROBLEM (above).  More information as it comes available. 

ARCTIC FLOWERS weaver LP
The album comes out next month (late May).  Here is a review fro CVLT Nation: ‘After last year’s excellent “Procession” EP, an EP that showcased the Flowers’ talent for combining the tradition of anarcho/peace punk with a postpunk sensibility, the new “Weaver” LP continues in much the same vein. The first side kicks off with the energetic track “Magdalene” and the pace doesn’t let up too much from there, culminating in the barnstorming track “Anamnesis,” which employs a riff that reminds me of a Rudimentary Peni track (specifically, “The Evil Clergyman” off RP’s “Cacophony“). But it’s Side 2 that contains my favorite tracks off this new release. The second side kicks off with the memorable track “Byzantine”; guitarist Stan Wright lays down a chunky, Killing Joke-esque riff (think of that band’s song “Tension” mixed with “The Wait”), complemented by frontwoman Alex’s vocals, which recall the classic goth-punk of bands like Rubella Ballet and Lost Cherrees. The following title track, “Weaver,” is another winner – just a great mid-tempo punk rocker that, in true Arctic Flowers fashion, blurs the boundaries between classic punk, postpunk, and early gothic rock.
That’s the genius of Arctic Flowers, though, on full display in this new offering: their ability to recombine and synthesize, in new and interesting ways, the traditions of gothic rock and anarcho-punk into a novel, fresh whole. Stan’s nimble guitar is pushed to the fore in the mix of most songs. The rhythm section isn’t far behind, though: Cliff’s drums cover a wide expanse of tempos, from the slower gothic dirge of “Dirges Dwell” (which features a Joy Division-esque bass and guitar opening, harkening back to “Dead Souls”) to the uptempo barnstormer that is Side 1′s late track, “Anamnesis.” Bassist Lee’s work centers the band’s arrangements perfectly, like the lodestar around which one orients a compass. As always, Arctic Flowers’ playing is smart, thoughtful, passionate, centered, and succinct. It is at turns intricate and blunt, subtle and heavy. The long-running DIY background of the band’s members imparts to the songs an urgency one is not likely to find in the more disingenuous bands trying to hop on the recent goth-punk bandwagon.  Weaver is simply an excellent LP.’
