For fans of Antioch Arrow, Swing Kids, Clikatat Ikatowi, etc.

What's Hot:

Wasteland, LP MP3
Wasteland's monumental full length has been in the works for almost five years and against all odds is finally seeing the light of day. This LP blurs the normal lines set within modern hardcore, here dirgy bass riffs intersect with a mournful triumph of guitar melodies in an all out sonic collapse framed by d-beats and searing vocals. The swan song of Wasteland is finally yours in all of its glory, re-mixed, re-mastered and un-fucking-relenting. The LP is also accompanied with a download code that includes the entire remastered Wasteland discography! If you need help with your hardcore family tree, members have been involved in Aerosols, Soul Control, Relics, No Trigger, Suburbanite, Foxfires, Won't Belong, etc, etc.
Limited to a one time pressing of 300 on color vinyl.

Baader Brains - New Era Hope Colony, 12" EP MP3 - LYRICS
Two years since the fated members of the Young Tiger Free Organization began their astral journey to Procyon, the time-lock on these recordings has finally opened, and now-for a limited time-we are able to bring you Baader Brains' second, final and posthumous sonic treatise. Bringing to mind the knocked-out-teeth vibe of David Tarling's Nervous Breakdown-era Black Flag production values, and somehow mixed with the highbrow artistry of Windham Hill easy-listening releases, Baader Brains here achieves the equivalent of a ketchup-and-ice-cream mash-up. Lyrically there is much talk of mysterious glows, preparation for evacuations, and roadmaps to a better tomorrow. Whether the 'Brains grasp-or even understand-the gravity of their proclamations, time and history will yet be the determining factor. The New Era Hope Colony EP is not only a meditation on our current predicament, but also a beacon of hope looking towards a yet-to-be-determined future.  Indeed, with this record the paradoxes and promises of The Incomplete Unfinished Works... will finally be resolved.

Daniel Striped Tiger - No Difference, LP MP3

Mind Eraser - Conscious Unconscious, LP MP3
