Catalog

Garbage & the Flowers- Alamo Rose 7"

$5.50 ppd usa
$8.50 ppd world

Garbage & the Flowers first vinyl release in a dozen or so years finds their course steady, still crafting fragile melodies and harmonies wrapped in an intimate fidelity on their own timetable. Certainly things have changed since the mid-90's— they operate out of Australia now, not New Zealand —but their songwriting and fuzzed out folk atmosphere sound just as good as ever. The scales in "Alamo Rose" wind around measured rhythms and hiss, leaving you wishing for one more go around of the refrain before the song crumbles on the turntable.

XYX- momento acido contemporaneo 7"

$5.50 ppd usa
$8.50 ppd world

Mexico's XYX debut single on SS was one of the best records I heard in 2008, and this follow up continues where that left off-- Distorted bass and strobing vocals, with complex mania-induced rhythms that romp through multiple 80's and 90's touchstones while sounding like they borrowed a melody from tomorrow. They will be touring the west coast of the USA this summer, so be on the lookout.

kurt vile- fall demons 7"

$5.50 ppd usa
$8.50 ppd world

Trippin' the riffs between some catchy freedom rock and Fripptronics, Kurt is back with brand new songs on this single. Last year's CD on Gulcher was a year end favorite and his recent west coast tour showed that the riffbag runs deep. New record out later this year on Matador... looks like he's growing up fast.

black pus- s/t 7"

$8.00 ppd usa
$11.00 ppd world

Brian Chippendale replaces the riffs of Lightning Bolt with fried electronics, reeds, and gleeful vocals in the rhythmic pounding pop of the summer on this solo single. This is a split release with the Corleone Record Group of Rhode Island, and strays from the normal Skulltones aesthetic featuring 9 color silkscreen blooming toilet artwork done by the artist himself.

church police- gilligan's wings 7"

$5.50 ppd usa
$8.50 ppd world

A fantastic collection of unreleased recordings from northern California, circa 1982. You may recall their contribution "The Oven Is My Friend" as on of the most memorable tracks on the Not So Quiet On The Western Front compilation. This single picks up where that left off-thick downer artpunk with stumbling drums and a thick plodding bass wall march the songs forward in slow motion. Layered on top, the guitar lines add a sort of meandering melody, bending and detuning in wild synchronicity with the psychedelic deadpan vocals. The material holds its own against fellow NoCal bumouts Flipper (whom CP played with), and is perfect for those who have worn out the grooves of their Negative Trend, Sickness/Kilslug, and other lost 80s weirdness. Limited to 300 copies.

sic alps- semi streets 7"

$5.50 ppd usa
$8.50 ppd world

Sunshine filtering through broken windows into a moldy basement, a hammock full of leaves, fire ants bogged down in a patch of honey, sprawled upon a sandy off-peach tattered beach towel in the park: Summer's come and gone. Sic Alps bring a warm haze and lo-fi fuzzed jangle to keep it's memory alive. A-Side previously released as a cassingle on Folding. B-Side has brand new noise.

lambsbread- king of the crop 7"

$5.50 ppd usa
$8.50 ppd world

Bombed out basement brutality from three midwest dwellers. It would be a copout to merely mention a certain feline/feminine privates named band, so instead let's say they've soaked a Nervous Breakdown 7" in stale bongwater and let it rip. Blown out guitar heat threatens to smoke out punked percussion. Heavy meanderings seem to signal some sort of blood speckled truce. Yeah, this is a hardcore 45. Their first vinyl release after 78 tapes and cdrs.

$5.50 ppd usa

jewelled antler collective members and german gentlemen stumble down a hill and end up in a bunker in germany in 1980. murk-fidelity songs tumble forth stream of consciousness style in the vein of the fall, germs 'forming', downer art punk, early neubauten, bedroom raving, and god knows what else.
