Bold Ones – Open Your Mouth 7″ EP (listen)
Plexi 3 – Know Better 7″ EP (listen)
Headache City – Teenage Grease 7″ EP (listen)
This triad of awesomeness is now available for pre-order from HoZac records. You might even get in on the “Gold” versions of these records if you act now. Cryptically, this means a “limited magnetic sheet” Bold Ones 7″, a “hand screened sleeve” for the Headache City 7″ and “I don’t know” for the Plexi 3 7″. I’ll cover each of these when they come in, I just figured there were a few of you not on the HoZac mailing list who might be into this.
Also: why aren’t you on the HoZac mailing list?

Top of my 2007 year end list was the amazing No Age series, whereby when you collected all 5, the covers spell “NO Age,” and so it is no surprise that one of my most anticipated releases of 2008 is the new No Age LP “Nouns,” which Sub Pop is releasing in May. I just caught wind of this pre-order for the album track “Eraser,” alongside three b-sides covers of Nerves (“Hangin’ On The Telephone”), Nate Denver, and Urinals songs. This 7″ isn’t going to be ready until April, but I can see this one selling quickly.
Also, the initial lineup for this year’s Sled Island Festival in Calgary was released… and No Age are on the bill. I’ve been wanting to check them out live for a while now, and here is my chance. Awesome.
