New Orleans’ EYEHATEGOD is the snarling, bilious sound of dead-end America. Since 1988, they’ve been a soundtrack for the troubled masses. Ugly music for ugly times. That’s the sense of disenchantment and disease that lies the heart of their latest and sixth full-length album, “A History of Nomadic Behavior”. Anyone familiar with EHG’s story knows this is survivor’s music, a sound unto itself where Sabbathian riffs are meted out with a caustic anger that goes beyond punk. That’s been the blueprint since guitarist Jimmy Bower (also of NOLA supergroup, Down) founded the band in 1988 with vocalist Mike IX Williams joining not long after. With a discography including sludge-punk mainstays like “In the Name of Suffering” (1990), “Take as Needed for Pain” (1993) “Dopesick” (1996) or 2014’s eponymously-titled LP, released in the US through Housecore Records, EHG laid the cracked foundation for their infamous and influential sound. “A History of Nomadic Behavior” finds the band, now slimmed to a four-piece rounded out by bassist Gary Mader and drummer Aaron Hill, leaner and meaner than ever; road-hardened by recent tours with Black Label Society, Corrosion of Conformity and Napalm Death in the US and abroad. From the bitter pill of opener “Built Beneath the Lies” to the hypnotic haze of closer “Every Thing, Every Day” it’s clear that that EYEHATEGOD hasn’t slowed or mellowed with time. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. This is disorienting, uneasy listening. Music that still very much hurts.

Formed in Essen, Germany in 1984, Kreator are arguably the most influential and successful European thrash metal band ever, like many of their European speed metal brethren, Kreator fused Metallica's thrash innovations with Venom's proto-black metal imagery. Often credited with helping pioneer death metal and black metal by containing several elements of what was to become those genres. The band has achieved worldwide sales of over two million units for combined sales of all their albums, making them one of the best-selling German thrash metal bands of all time. The band's style has changed several times over the years, from a Venom-inspired speed metal sound, later moving in to thrash metal, and including a period of transitioning from thrash to industrial metal and gothic metal throughout the 1990s. In the early 2000s, Kreator returned to their classic thrash sound, which has continued to the present. Their last studio album 'Gods Of Violence' charted top twenty in ten countries, including a number one slot in their home country of Germany. This double LP, splatter vinyl anthology contains all of Kreator's Noise Records era classics and also includes rare tracks and remixes, some never available on vinyl before. The artwork contains rare and previously unseen photos.

Vinyl LP pressing. Madness was one of the leading bands of the UK ska revival of the late '70s and early '80s. As their career progressed, Madness branched away from their trademark "nutty sound" and incorporated large elements of Motown, soul, and British pop; their songwriting becoming ever-more nuanced and sophisticated. Although the band enjoyed one crossover American hit with 'Our House' in 1983, they remained a British phenomenon, but their influence on several successive generations of international musicians looms large. Madness remain one of the UK's most beloved groups; a national treasure with a plethora of smash hit singles under their belt. This album brings you twelve of their very best songs including 'Night Boat To Cairo', 'Our House' and 'It Must Be Love', plus their most recent single, 'Bullingdon Boys'.

Vinyl LP pressing. 2021 release. "Trauma Factory is an accumulation of songs written during a confusing time. It is about accepting the present and following your true north through the pain and suffering of human life. I wanted to make an album that was truly genreless and inspire others to challenge themselves artistically. I believe the most inspiring art is unpredictable and unrestrictive. To me, that's what Trauma Factory is."

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit the U.S., Chastity Belt's Annie Truscott descended into a state of mourning. Her plan had been to join her partner, Jay Som's Melina Duterte, as violinist on tour, a privilege rarely afforded since both maintain busy road schedules, and for Truscott, the prospect of spending most of the year in a van wasn't met with exhaustion so much as exhilaration. At long last, she'd be making a living playing music, no side hustle needed. The cancellation of the tour represented a sidelined dream.Routine was born of this disappointment. Like the Phoenix rising from the ashes, Truscott and Duterte's collaborative project offers a glimpse of the creative possibilities that can emerge from a state of defeat. Written and recorded over the course of a month in Joshua Tree, Routine's lush debut EP And Other Things finds the couple trying on new roles. Truscott, who plays bass in Chastity Belt, wrote the bulk of the material and sings on the EP, while Duterte, normally a band leader, used the project as an opportunity to, in her words, "Take the backseat," as accompanist, producer, and engineer.Duterte describes the making of the EP as "seamless." In the mornings, Truscott sat outside of the cabin in the not-yet-blazing sun and worked out chord progressions on guitar while Duterte slept in. Staring out at the horizon, Truscott could see a smattering of houses and the sharp outline of a mountain range, but overall the property felt remote, far removed from home in Los Angeles. On long walks Truscott admired the recently bloomed spring flowers and pondered the legacy of friendships and experiences that made her. "I spend a lot of my time thinking about the people who've impacted my life," she says. "Routine gave me an opportunity to explore those relationships through music."It was on one of these walks that Truscott began writing "Cady Road," a contemplative, country-tinged pop song that urges listeners to sit in the discomfort of the present moment. "Relax/ It's fine/ You don't have to know this time," Truscott sings on the chorus, reflecting on the unsuredness that gripped her in those early days of the pandemic. Duterte joins in harmony, giving a song about being alone with your thoughts a collaborative dimension. "In Annie's songs I hear a yearning for something just out of reach, something unachievable," Duterte says. "She's such a great singer, so it felt good to just layer instruments to make her vision for it feel fully fleshed out." That impulse is heard vividly on "Cady Road,"where an abundant arrangement accompanies Truscott, replete with the spry notes of a banjolele.A true collaboration requires trust, intimacy, and patience, three elements that cohered almost mystically in the process of making this EP. "Melina is the most calming presence. She's so good at sitting with silences in a conversation and just observing," Truscott says. The quality not only makes Duterte a good partner, but also a good bandmate and producer. "Calm and Collected" is a tribute to that enviable ability to maintain serenity amidst the chaos of experience. Though it was written in Joshua Tree, Duterte and Truscott recorded it in the attic of their home in LA, where Duterte set up a studio in the free time afforded by the pandemic. The song is the quietest of the collection, a gentle ode underscored by atmospheric swaths of synth that swaddle the listener."I think of And Other Things as a series of vignettes," Truscott says. "We aren't telling one story here, we're telling a series of short stories that people can hopefully relate to." Asked how it feels to offer the EP up to the world during a time of major uncertainty in the music industry, Truscott offers only one word: "Cathartic."

Limited edition colored vinyl LP pressing. All The Right Noises marks a return to the full-throttle sound of Thunder that has seen them create a hugely successful 30 plus year career at the forefront of British rock, all built around the lifelong friendship of vocalist extraordinaire Danny Bowes and songwriting genius/guitarist Luke Morley. All The Right Noises is an intense confection of illicit charms recorded in the months leading up to the first Covid-19 lockdown, originally due for release in September 2020. Strange to reflect then on how much of the new material appears to address the challenging new world we now inhabit. On the album, Luke says " All the songs were written and recorded pre-Covid. But it is interesting how if you look at some of the tracks through the prism of Covid they still make a lot of sense."

Initially written and recorded when Atmosphere and fledgling label Rhymesayers Entertainment were still making a name for themselves in the Minneapolis hip-hop scene, "God's Bathroom Floor" was an early standout for the group. Turning heads and drawing new fans in with Slug's introspective raps over producer Stress' hypnotic jazzy beat, the song was performed live frequently, becoming an audience favorite before ever appearing on an actual release. Even then, it was only a live performance they made available, and only on a limited mixtape they released in 1996. It would be another year before the 4-track studio recording would surface on Atmosphere's Overcast! EP, a collection of focus tracks promoting their debut full-length album, but "God's Bathroom Floor" never made it onto the album itself and slowly slipped into obscurity from there. Now, in celebration of it's 25th anniversary, the original recording has been unearthed, remastered, and pressed on this limited edition 7-inch vinyl. Plus, in a nod to the song's original release as a live version, we've included a new live performance of the song, recorded recently in Montreal, mixed and mastered exclusively for this special release. Whether you're a lifelong fan whose first introduction to the group was through this song, a new fan looking to explore the group's historical roots further, or somewhere in between, this release will be a welcome addition to your Atmosphere collection.

Having celebrated their 30th anniversary in 2020 [their first eight years spent as Crown Of Thorns], The Crown have proven themselves one of the most enduring forces in death metal. In 2021 they further up the ante with 'Royal Destroyer', a record that sets a new standard for the genre. "It is our album number ten, so now we are in the big boys club," says bassist Magnus Olsfelt. "I think it in some ways is our crowning achievement, and it encompasses our sound across all albums on one defining record. It's got it all - the early 90s death metal stuff, the haunting melodies, the thrash, the punk, the grind, the heavy metal and the more epic and doomy stuff."

Suitcase Man [LP]

Vinyl: $19.97 Buy

MP3 Album: $8.99 Download

Mike Dillon has spent the last three decades performing well over 200 shows a year with both his own band, as well as playing vibraphone and percussion with artists like Rickie Lee Jones, Les Claypool and Ani DiFranco. So when the pandemic hit in early 2020 forcing Dillon off the road, he instinctively directed his perpetually restless creative energy to writing and recording. Recently relocating to Kansas City after spending 15 years in New Orleans, Dillon and producer Chad Meise would track a trilogy of albums: Shoot The Moon, Suitcase Man and 1918.
The second recording in the series, Suitcase Man is a nine-song cycle through which Dillon examine his life and choices made over the past 55 years. It's a distinct entry in his extensive discography, notable for its strikingly honest lyricism and minimalist arrangements that incorporate sparse vibraphone and percussion with a handful of background vocals by Tiff Lamson of Givers and longtime collaborator JJ Jungle. Songs like Empty Bones, Turkish Rose and Matthew represent Dillon at his most creatively daring, while confirming his ascent into the upper echelon of cult music outsiders in the lineage of artists like Tom Waits, Harry Partch and Captain Beefheart.
A native of San Antonio, Texas, Mike Dillon got his start as a sideman, playing in such varied projects as MC 900 Foot Jesus, Brave Combo and Secret Chiefs 3. He's also served as an integral member of bands like Critters Buggin, Garage A Trois, Dead Kenny Gs and Nolatet, while leading Billy Goat, Hairy Apes BMX and Malachy Papers. Under his own name, he's amassed an extensive catalog of genre-defying recordings. Touring relentlessly, he’s built one of the most loyal fanbases on the underground music scene, while being invited to share bills with bands including Clutch, Umphrey's McGee and Dean Ween Group.

The third in the trilogy of albums, ‘1918’ focuses on Dillon's instrumentals: the dank and dark Moog/tabla/vibraphone psych vibe of 'Pinocchio' the electro analog trance of 'Pelagic' and the jungle groove, pace rock of the title track. The instrumental tracks, as well as a handful of vocal-based tunes address the Covid-19 pandemic and recent social issues. 'The parallels between 1918 and 2020 are immense. We just have fancier toys, but the tunnel vision and mammalian tendencies are the same if not greater' explains Dillon.

'Ete 85' (Summer of 85) is a story of friendship and love between two teenage boys at a seaside resort in Normandy in the mid-1980s. When 16-year-old Alexis capsizes off the coast of Le Treport, 18-year-old David heroically saves him. Alexis thinks he's just met the friend of his dreams. But will the dream last more than one summer? Since 2000, you'd be hard-pressed to find a filmmaker that has received as much acclaim internationally than French filmmaker Francois Ozon. With numerous films (including 'Double Lover,' 'Young & Beautiful,' 'Time to Leave' and 'Swimming Pool') released over the past 20 years that have received awards recognition, festival accolades, and critical acclaim, Ozon has made a name for himself as a filmmaker that just doesn't release bad works. And this year, he keeps that trend going with the film, 'Ete 85.' Ozon's screenplay - adapted from the novel 'Dance On My Grave' by English author Aidan Chambers - and direction showcase his unique ability to play with genre, including irresistible nods to American teen movies. Ete 85 is the gay summer-of-love story to end them all and boasts a killer soundtrack including The Cure and is scored by non-other than Air's JB Dunckel. The movie is already considered the French answer to the tremendous success movie 'Call Me By Your Name'. Ete 85 is in the running for a Cesar selection of the best soundtrack. Straddling darkness, comedy, and sensuality, 'Ete 85' is ultimately a poignant tale about experiencing love for the first time. The movie was initially supposed to be called 'Ete 84' ('Summer of 84'). Robert Smith, the singer of The Cure, refused to grant Francois Ozon the permission to use his song 'In Between Days' because it was actually released a year later, in 1985. Ozon wrote back a letter to Robert Smith asking for a lower price for
