Sweating Tapes and desire are releasing a split with Bestial Mouths & Deathday!


Things are happening in North America. Namely in Los Angeles, where the sweet label Sweating Tapes is situated. Currently on the way of releasing a limited edition 12¨ split-vinyl with the Los Angeles bands Bestial Mouths and Deathday, together with the European label desire. It’s the first release from them since October, when they released their second compilation “A Compilation Volume 2: The Bay Area“. Since then, there haven’t been as much action on at least the release-front, so the machinery seems to be up at full speed once again. Their split-release feature four tracks, two of each band, and is limited to 500 copies with a two-colored insert, also including download when bought. It costs 13 USD and ships on around the 2nd of April, the digital release for it is on the 26th of March. You can read a summary of the both bands by Jerome from desire below. The tracks featured on the release can also be listened to via streaming. Pre-order this release via the Sweating Tapes bandcamp.

Sweating Tapes & desire are proud to present an unique record: a limited 12″ split between two of the hottest bands in LA, Bestial Mouths and Deathday.

Pooling together a group of influences as diverse as its members, BESTIAL MOUTHS present a raw, synth-driven energy propelled by singer Lynette Cerezo’s powerful vocals. Often likened to Diamanda Galas, Siouxsie Sioux or Lydia Lunch, Cerezo delivers each note with fury and abandon. Synthesists/keyboardists Christopher Myrick and Gustavo Aldana channel early industrial, EBM, goth and minimal synth pop in turns, blending harsh electronics and lush melodies. When fused to Aldana’s splintered programmed beats and the tribal rhythms and samples of drummer Jessica Reuter, the harmonics combine to breathe new life into post punk, weaving their own distinct creation in the process. Bestial Mouths has released an album on Dais Records.

Constructed from the aggressive textures of early industrial music, the ambience of coldwave, & the carnal energy of post-punk, DEATHDAY blends dark and often esoteric images with sparse, primal analog sounds. The quartet has recently contributed tracks to Downwards’ So Click Heels, Mannequin’s The End Of Civilization compilations.

Deathday’s self-titled debut will be reissued on limited white vinyl later this year via Sweating Tapes & desire.

Fysisk Format släpper ny singel med Haraball!


Ingen kan väl ha undgått att antingen höra, få nys om eller se de norska hardcorepunkarna Haraball? Deras tidigare släpp “The Rope” och “Frowns Vs Downs” har varit eggande, symptomatiska och relevanta. Både när det kommer till musiken, men även när det kommer till omslag. Nu släpper de en ny singel, på det norska bolaget Fysisk Format. Här kan det tilläggas att de lyckas få till ett utomordentligt omslag, gjort utav Esra Caroline Røise, som Fysisk Format utlovade tidigare i veckan. Singeln går under namnet “Jeremy Smoked” och är lika fantastisk som de specifikationer som medföljer: “ex-straight edgers meet high brow elitist punks!“. Debutalbumet “Sleep Tall” kommer att vara ute den 10:e Maj, och kan beställas i begränsad upplaga på blå vinyl eller standard svart, men kommer även att finnas på CD-skiva. Den blåa vinylskivan kommer endast att kunna beställas från Tigernet i Norge, med tillhörande CD i en begränsad bunt. Internationella ordrar kommer att mottas i April, men förbeställ redan nu om du befinner dig i Norge.

TSTI releases his first musicvideo ever!

TSTI is the product of an analog experience. We’re the listeners to his sounds and now he’s premiered a music-video for his song “In Loving Memory“, from his album “Evaluations“. Highways and cars seems to be the method you choose, when you want to venture down memory lane. Listen to his crisp and retro-sounding bombastic synth, hints of darkwave, concrete industrial – but do also adhere to his sincere singing and overall energy. If you didn’t already know, TSTI is from Schenectady, New York and his real name is S. Smith. Remember, you can buy his album, either as vinyl or CD over at Desire Records. You can also listen to his album down below.
