GARAGE/BEAT/SURF/ROCK’N’ROLL

GENTLEMEN'S AGREEMENTS - LAST CALL FOR THE GENTLEMEN (LP/SOUNDFLAT)

Another freakbeat-Hammond-mod-masterpiece from The Gentlemen's Agreements! After the fabulous debut 'Understanding!', two hit singles and many sensational live-shows in the international '60s-scene, these Frenchies have once again captured their groovy, Hammond-driven, fuzzy, '60s mod-sounds for a great release. The music, by the way, also features a touch of soul and a hint of jazz that will leave you completely stunned.

BONNEVILLES - FOLK ART AND DEATH OF ELECTRIC JESUS (LP/BLUES FOR THE R)

PUNK/HARDCORE

ORDEN MUNDIAL - PORQUE LAS DROGAS SON VENENO (7"/LA VIDA ES UN M)

A taster for the 2017 album, this 7-inch displays all the chaos and sonic venom that the Mallorca outfit is known for. This edition is limited to 300 copies.

SLENDER - WALLED GARDEN (7"/LA VIDA ES UN M)

The 6-track debut-EP from a NYC-based unit. Some tracks have the anarcho atmosphere of classic Crass Records bands, other cuts sound like The Swell Maps, and most of the material falls somewhere in between these two extremes. This is a limited edition of 300 copies.

BARCELONA - UN ULTIMO ULTRASONIDO NACIO Y MAURIO... (LP/LA VIDA ES UN M)

...EN BARCELONA' - This is the band's sophomore 12-inch of pure sonic nihilism. This project is capable of creating its own universe and then vomits all over it. The formula is distortion to the max, total freeness and improvisation, with regurgitated bass lines and repetitive primitive beats, topped with the sharpest and nastiest lyrics on observations of our own futility and misery.

PERMISSION - CONTAGIOUS LIFE (LP/LA VIDA ES UN M)

This mini-LP marks the sorming debut by Permission, a band from London that sounds like a hi-fi Rudimentary Peni blended with what Saccharine Trust would be if it was a rugby team. 'Contagious Life' comes housed in a heavy weight reverse board sleeve, including a lyric insert and a download code.

INDUSTRIAL/EXPERIMENTAL/NOISE/NEOFOLK/GOTHIC

PART, ARVO - FUR ALINA (LP/MISSISSIPPI)

Some of Arvo Part's finest recordings are collected on one LP! Whether they're solo piano pieces, duets with piano, violin cello and viola, or recordings featuring a string quartet, the pieces on this record are all unique to the style of Arvo Part. The record comes in a beautiful tip-on old school cover with shiny gold ink, featuring an incredible painting from the 16th century manuscript 'Kometenbuch'.

METAL/STONER/HARDROCK

MAGMA WAVES - (BLACK) ...AND WHO WILL TAKE CARE OF YOU NOW (2LP) (LP/NARSHARDAA)

Limited to 100 copies on DOUBLE BLACK VINYL, packaged in a gatefold sleeve. Magma Waves is an instrumental post-rock band from Duisburg, Germany and '...And Who Will Take Care Of You Now' is the group's full-length debut. It is a record to drown in. Its powerful, heavy soundwalls go along beautifully with atmospheric post-rock melodies. The seven songs make for 60 minutes of an exciting auditive journey.

BLACK ROAD - BLACK ROAD (CD/BLOODROCK)

Black Road is a 4-piece sultry stoner/doom band from Chicago that creates a heavy and harmonious combination of rhythm and riffs. This is the self-titled debut-album on CD.

GUDARS SKYMNING - V (CD/TRANSUBSTANS)

The mighty Gudars Skymning returns with an earth shattering magnum opus! 'V' is without a doubt the heaviest and most progressive album in the band's 11-year history. Recorded in just over two days, 'V' delivers an overpowering strongbrew of hardrock, doom, prog and folk, showcasing some amazing twin axe heaviness! As always, the band recorded most of the album live in the studio in order to capture the true vibe of the songs in optima forma.

SOUL/FUNK/LATIN/R&B/GOSPEL

SIGUARAJAZZ - LO MEJOR VOL. 1 (LP/HIT MUSICAL)

ELECTRONIC MUSIC/AMBIENT/D’N’B/TRIPHOP

BREIDABLIK - PENUMBRA (LP/PANCROMATIC)

Using mainly analogue synthesizers Norwegian artist Breidablik builds large electronic soundscapes with sequences, drones, and ambient textures. Following in the footsteps of artists such as Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze and Michael Hoenig, but not without adding distinctiveness and innovation, 'Penumbra' should appeal to fans of progressive electronic music and especially to those who enjoy the music from the Berlin School of Electronic Music. This edition is limited to 300 copies on transparent vinyl.

SOUNDTRACKS/LOUNGE/CULT ETC

VARIOUS - MONSTER-O-RAMA (+CD) (LP/JUKEBOX MUSIC F)

El Vidocq has concocted a monstrous playlist from the 1950s and '60s, since these were frightingly creative decades for both cinema and music. Indeed, both worlds were intertwined, as melodiously illustrated here by f.i Lon Chaney (The Unknown) with his 'Monster Holidays'. No style lags behind, from the surfrock of the Noblemen to the cha cha cha of Bruno Martino, and from the rockabilly of Jim Burgett to the big band jazz of Jackie Jocko. Get ready to rock and rumble wth Frankenstein, Dracula and a hungry horde of Zombies. Wha ha ha ha!!! SIDE A: 1. THE UPPERCLASSMEN - Cha Cha With The Zombies 2. THE NOBLEMEN - Dragon Walk 3. SHARKEY TODD & His Monsters -The Horror Show 4. JIM BURGETT - The Living Dead 5. THE NIGHTMARES - The Nightmare! 6. LON CHANEY - Monster Holiday 7.
