BIG BUSINESS- Head For The Shallow - n/a - WÄNTAGE USA

click to enlarge First album by this band featuring Coady Willis (ex-MURDER CITY DEVILS, etc.) and Jared Warren (ex-KARP, TIGHT BROS.!). 8 tracks of heavy thunder in the vein of MELVINS, BLACK SABBATH... and yes, most of all, like KARP! www.wantageusa.com

BUGS- The Right Time - n/a - WÄNTAGE USA / X-MIST

click to enlarge Limited handnumbered edition of 265 copies with two-color silkscreened covers, and download-code included! Our summer-hit LP! Features 17 new tracks, infectiously catchy songs sounding to our ears like "THE TIMES/TV PERSONALITIES filtered thru' a URINALS Punk-sound", and beamed into the post-nuclear age. Or what suits even better: Like early Daniel Johnston or Jad Fair meeting with 60s Bubblegum-Pop.
This new (their 4th) album by the BUGS from Portland is not only a welcome addition to their unique brand on pop-songs, but it's as well lyrically modern times from-the-gut protest rock. Somehow brothers-in-arms with bands like CHAIN AND THE GANG... Huh! http://thebugspdx.bandcamp.com/album/the-right-time

click to enlarge For this album the JAPANTHER dudes have teamed up with none other than former CRASS-member Penny Rimbaud! JAPANTHER's consistent 2-minute blasts, with interludes by Rimbaud!

MORDECAI- Waste/Drag Down - 7" - WÄNTAGE USA

click to enlarge Following their totally amazing LP (check that one out, if you haven't done yet!), here's a limited edition single, packed into a silkscreened sleeve, by these young dudes from Butte/Montana. Breathing new life into the styles of the early FALL and SWELL MAPS, PRATS or URINALS, with a crunchy, noisy and tight, feedback-soaked LoFi-sound! It even sounds to me like a juvenile and non-pretentious version of the TELEVISION... Kinda similar to the highly-praised PHEROMOANS or UV RACE, but a dozen times better than those. http://paperhose.tumblr.com/

NEEDLECRAFT- s/t - LP - WÄNTAGE USA

click to enlarge Limited handnumbered edition of 207 copies, with silkscreened sleeves and download-code included. A female duo from Portland, Oregon, sounding like the SHAGGS... But they're also part of the neo-garage wave with folks like SHANNON AND THE CLAMS, HUNX AND HIS PUNX, and that whole TY SEGALL/OH SEES axis. It's entertaining fun, part Waters/Hairspray camp and part RONETTES... http://needlecraft.bandcamp.com/
