Bossk "Audio Noir"
Format: CD, LP, Digital



Bossk are an atmospheric post-everything band from Ashford, Kent, England. 

Over the course of a decade Bossk have blurred the lines between the Post Metal and Post Rock sub-genres, earning cult like status in the underground music scene. They've selectively shared stages with bands including ...And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead, Cult of Luna, Dragged Into Sunlight, and many more.

Their album "Audio Noir" is a truly transcendent aural experience. Opener "The Reverie" transports the listener to new dimensions through hypnotic repetition and layered instrumentation before taking a turn into stoner doom territory with "Heliopause". Emotional instrumental "Relancer" builds to a sonic crescendo while leading to the awesome "Kobe". A song that shifts a multitude of gears before setting into one of the more chaotic hooks the band has ever produced. "Atom Smasher" then carries some of the heaviest moments of the album before beautifully disintegrating into the touching track "Nadir". Lastly, Bossk unveil "The Reverie II", a brilliant ten minute reprise that shows the band at the peak of their creative powers. Solidifying "Audio Noir" as the best kind of masterpiece; a sea change that the music world never saw coming.

Death Index "Death Index"
Format: CD, LP, Digital



Death Index is a new project of Carson Cox (Merchandise, Neon Blud, Church Whip) and Marco Rapisarda (La Piovra, Sgurd, Archaic). Their debut album was conceived and recorded between Berlin, Tampa Bay, and Palermo, Italy.  Born in Sicily. Dead in America. Born again in Berlin. Songs about Death and Dying. Computer Death. Social Death. Animal Violence.

Death Index has yielded an album that has more in common with the primordial days of art punk than anything out there today. Roaring out of the gate with a feedback driven gallop, the album brings to mind the swagger of The Birthday Party and others. Simple synth lines and manic guitars swirl heavily throughout. Conjuring the experimental spirit of legends Suicide, while Carson’s infectious vocal croon serves as a melodious anchor through a multitude of unpredictable twists and turns.

Chrome Over Brass "Self Titled"
Format: 12"LP, Digital



Chrome Over Brass is the one man instrumental band of Alex Garcia-Rivera, drummer of American Nightmare (Give Up The Ghost). As a highly regarded drum technician he has helped meticulously craft memorable drum sounds on landmark releases from Converge, Coliseum, Beastmilk, and more. He has also served as touring drummer for Cold Cave, Saves The Day, Shelter, and many others. 

After years of playing in traditional multi-member bands, Alex set out to do something that was 100% of his creation and control. Chrome Over Brass takes the traditional approach to songwriting and flips it upside down. Alex Garcia-Rivera's thunderous drum-riffs serve as the epicenter of everything rather than typical guitar-riffing/melody. The end result is a proto prog-punk mix that combines a High On Fire toughness with Don Caballero-like proficiency and swagger, all propelled by an urge for late 60s / early 70s inspired artistic exploration. 

In a live setting Chrome Over Brass is an impressive sight. Alex Garcia-Rivera performs all percussion alongside his pre-recorded instrumentation, without breaks, making Chrome Over Brass a one-man experience unlike anything else out there.

A true DIY project, the debut album from Chrome Over Brass was recorded in a 100% analog process on 2 inch tape at Alex Garcia-Rivera’s own Mystic Valley Studio, a fully analog studio he built with his own hands. Each song is comprised of one complete drum performance on a simple 5 piece drum set (made by Alex himself), with no digital editing. Even guitar and bass tracks were recorded in singular takes; a true rarity in today's cut and paste music world. 

Side-A opener "Elephants Never Forget" stomps out of the gate as a phased out exercise in post-everything heavy. While "Bear Attack", "Crush On The Derbyshire", and "Here Come The Stukas" all collectively pick up the pace, introducing technical speed and simple riffing with epic results. Side-B begins with even more impressive musicality in "Black Rainbow" and "Fighting With Tooth And Nailgun". While synth drenched psychedelic jam "Moogs for Moderns" grants some moments of sonic serenity. That’s not all, "Jeeps On Safari" cleverly emerges from the haze with a hook laden bounce, leading to wild closer “One Night In St. Regis”. A hyper speed percussive blast that needs to be heard to be believed.

Birds In Row "Personal War"
Format: 12"EP, CD, Digital



Birds In Row are a melodic and abrasive band from Laval, France.

Blurring the lines between hardcore, punk, and related sub-genres, Birds In Row offer something of substantial weight to their listeners. Collectively carrying somber hearts and poignant souls, they navigate through melancholic seas to shape beautifully hook-laden songs unlike anything else out there today.

“Personal War” is a seven track outpouring from Birds In Row. First proper song “Torches” breaks into a sprint from the get go. Drenched in expressive guitar work, it tells the tale of life’s light overcoming death’s darkness. The race continues with “O-Dear” and “Weary”. Two musically infectious songs that are lyrically entangled in the complexity of love. “Worried” then wanders into view as a beautifully melodic piece, slowing to an introspective shuffle before the chaotic “Snakes” picks up the pace again. All of this leads to emotional closer “Marathon”. A song that serves as Birds In Row’s declaration of war on the world of ethical and emotional compromise.

Track Listing:
01. Intro
02. Torches
03. O'Dear
04. Weary
05. Worried
06. Snakes
07. Marathon

Lies / White Jazz "Split"
Format: 7"EP, Digital



Lies are a vicious band featuring members of Skin Like Iron and The Hope Conspiracy. Their stripped down approach is a clear nod to Anti-Cimex, Skitsystem and other classic punk bands. Here they offer two crushing songs, “Cycle of Abuse” and “Deny Me”, both utterly relentless in the best way possible.

White Jazz are a frantic band featuring three quarters of Rise And Fall. Their high energy wall of sound is a throwback to the golden days when Black Flag and Minor Threat ruled the underground music world. Here they offer two songs, “Bliss” and “Gutter Rainbows” that are both infectiously discordant in tone.

Track Listing:
01. Lies - Cycle Of Abuse
02. Lies - Deny Me
03. White Jazz - Bliss
04. White Jazz - Gutter Rainbows

First Press:
364 - White
