BLAXXX- For No Apparent Reason - LP - 12XU RECORDS

click to enlarge A threepiece featuring Lamont "Bim" Thomas (OBNOX) with OBN III members Orville Neeley and Tom Triplett. A collaboration that resulted in super-distorted Space-Rock jams, and blown-out Garage-Psyche stompers. These guys use an improvisational, jazz-influenced aesthetic to create raw, undiluted Rock, far from any any genre-boundaries. Limited edition with relief-print on front-cover, and with download-code included! https://soundcloud.com/gerardcosloy/blaxxx-let-me-hold-your-hand

DEAD SPACE- Faker - LP - 12XU RECORDS

click to enlarge Full album by Post-Punk trio from Austin, whose sound Gerard Cosloy (12XU) describes as "if JOY DIVISION had been recorded by Spot (the legendary producer of bands like the BIG BOYS, DICKS, various SST acts) instead of Martin Hannett". And even though their style (not the sound) reminds me at times as well of PLACEBO or BAUHAUS, I guess there's a good point about his description. https://soundcloud.com/gerardcosloy/the-dead-space-behind-the-wall

EXHAUSTION- Phased Out - 12"+MP3 - 12XU RECORDS

click to enlarge Australian band, with previous releases on AARGHT! RECORDS. This 12" contains two new exclusive tracks, and remixes of both by Mikey Young and Rites Wild. The originals are pushing, with frenetically pounding rhythms, heaps of distorted guitar-sounds, surrounded by electronic Industrial effects. While the remixes are slowed-down with darker and more introspective atmospheres. https://youtu.be/r5UJUZ_OqVA

GOTOBEDS- Poor People Are Revolting - LP - 12XU RECORDS

click to enlarge Debut-LP by band from Pittsburgh/Pennsylvania. 10 catchy songs, no filler, where Post-Punk meets (early) Indie-Rock. As references can serve SONIC YOUTH with "Total Trash", SUPERCHUNK in their best days, MISSION OF BURMA, REPLACEMENTS, etc... Nothing new, pretty standard, but done extremely well, resulting in a non-stop listening party. http://thegotobeds.bandcamp.com/

OBNIII'S- Worth A Lot Of Money - LP - 12XU RECORDS

click to enlarge Latest full album (10 tracks) by these obnoxious rockers from Austin/Texas. Relentlessly hard rockin', somewhere in between Punk-Rock la D.O.A., GOVERNMENT ISSUE, TOXIC REASONS and the STOOGES, with pretty obvious nods to bands like THIN LIZZY or BACHMAN TURNER OVERDRIVE. LP including download-code! http://obniiis.com/

OBNOX- Bougaloo Reed - LP - 12XU RECORDS

click to enlarge Back in stock! Full-length album (and maybe the best?!) by the non-stoppable music machine that is OBNOX alias Lamont "Bim" Thomas and his friends! Full-on raging, totally blown- & spaced-out, soulful(!) Punk-Rock. 15 tracks, all killer, no filler. LP with download-code included. https://soundcloud.com/noisey/obnox-too-punk-shakur

OBNOX- I'm Bleeding Now - LP - 12XU RECORDS

click to enlarge The first album, originally released in limited edition of 500 copies in 2011 on SMOG VEIL. Now available again on vinyl (incl. download-code) via 12XU. Rated by many as one of the best albums in 2011, and as the CHICAGO READER has put it: "This incredibly soulful and criminally overlooked release stands on the middle ground between the hyperactive garage punk of Jay Reatard and the blown-out Ohio pop of Guided by Voices." Well, it may as well stand somewhere else, but it definitely stands on its own. https://soundcloud.com/obnox-1

OBNOX- Niggative Approach - LP - 12XU RECORDS

click to enlarge Finally and at last, a new full album by the genre-defying Lamont Thomas aka OBNOX. An explosion in Funk, more soulful than anything else, and with the spirit of Punk! There's noone else around in the underground with a sharper take on what binds these genres together, and making it a current state-of-the-art expression. File under "challenging" (in each and every aspect). And you gotta love this album for the brilliant title alone! (LP incl. download-code)

UNHOLY TWO- Talk About Hardcore - n/a - 12XU RECORDS

click to enlarge New full album by this trio(!) from Columbus/Ohio. Furiously blown-out, feedback-soaked and nasty Noise-Dirge-Rock (such as BRAINBOMBS, HARRY PUSSY, or some early AMREP bands), going for the total sonic destruction. 10 tracks, including a cover-version of NON's "Total War". LP comes with download-code included! https://soundcloud.com/gerardcosloy/unholy-two-hard-times-daddy

currently out of stock

XETAS- The Redeemer - LP - 12XU RECORDS

click to enlarge First full album by this Punk-Rock trio from Austin/Texas. It's heavy rocking and catchy, filled with hooks, adrenaline-fired and blasting at you with a wall-of-sound. There's a certain affinity to SWAMI bands like RFTC and the HOT SNAKES here... 10 songs on vinyl, with download-code included. https://xetas.bandcamp.com/
