Someone on Termbo said I didn’t post this right away last time (I did) – I got this email 4 minutes ago (10:52am MST) – get in on these while you can! That said, I ordered first, posted second. Srsly.
We have three brand new releases, ready to invigorate your empty, lifeless carcass.
HZR-021 MEDICATION – “Don’t Die” b/w “Fog” 7″
The cold, dark waves of desperation and imminent mortal doom ring true on this debut 7″ from Medication, a home recording project from Conneticut that delves into the drifting echo-filled world of Mikey Hyde, who makes no qualms about addressing the despair and melancholy vibes swirling around his cranium. With jangling, distant orchestrations plodding alongside the beat of an old gypsy drum, this might just be the epically Autumnal record that sets you straight this year, and fans of Pink Reason might just find a new perennial favorite within these desolate grooves. As always, the first 150 copies are the Gold Edition with alternate ‘Attic Daze’ sleeve.
HZR-022 SUBTLE TURNHIPS – Fuck the People, Fuck The Power 7″ EP
If they let people in America gargle with razorblades like they allow the folks in France, then the mighty force of the Subtle Turnhips would be as big as Paris Hilton’s forehead, and ten times as ugly. As an enigmatic band that’s been mostly self-releasing records for the past eighteen years, the time has come for their first US release, and we’re mighty proud to host them on our label. With their slop-punk aesthetic effectively tickling the nuances of Swell Maps, TV Personalities, Drunks With Guns and Brainbombs, this is one 7″ EP that will win over anyone with a lick of good taste, and/or a pulse. As always, the first 150 copies are the Gold Edition with alternate ‘Corrosive Nail Font’ sleeve.
HZR-023 GRAVE BLANKETS – “Our Love is Real” b/w “Trip Wire” 7″
Emerging out of the spectacular modern musical hotbed of Columbus, Ohio, Grave Blankets are one of those bands that write colossal hooks into their songs that stick to your ribs upon first listen and furiously embed themselves into your evoked set of perilous preferences. Stripped of any gloss or NME hype, Grave Blankets offer a true picture of how disgustingly pure rock’n roll is done, as they careen and writhe under your skin and somehow walk away with one of the most memorable hits of the year, in a year already full of stellar releases. As always, the first 150 copies are the Gold Edition with alternate ‘Faceless Geometric’ sleeve.
all ordering information is listed below so please get your copies right away if you “need” the gold edition.
(NOTE: *need = plasma, oxygen, bread, water *want = records, fancy sunglasses, expensive sandwiches)
Sorry, but we have to limit the Gold Editions to ONE copy PER release title, PER order.
Please don’t beg! If you order more than one copy per record, you will get one Gold edition (if still available) and one Black Edition, or possibly even TWO black editions if the Gold are sold out. It’s first come, first serve, that’s just the way this works, folks. Lucky for you, we don’t release dogshit, so it shouldn’t be a problem.
Canada and Euro orders ship airmail.
All prices are postage paid. We are offering a special low price for one of each single which is obviously the best deal.
