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.

Nyplockat (#1) – Rundgång med smak av Vånna Inget!

I denna nya serie som kommer att ha premiär på Invisible Guy så tar jag mig till olika skivbutiker. Med tanke på att utbudet i Malmö inte är det bästa, så tänker jag börja med en serie av nyplockat som kommer att handla om skivbutiken Rundgång. Som ni alla vet är det en otroligt uppskattad och omskriven skivbutik som ligger i Södra Innerstaden och i det delområde som kallas för Möllevången. På Kristianstadsgatan 14 ligger denna nästan pittoreska skivbutik belägen och de avhandlar allt från glammig synth-pop till den mörkaste dödsindustriella farsoten du kan finna. Tjusningen med den här butiken är själva utbudet och faktumet att de tycker om att premiera lokala band. I butiken finns det beläget bland det nyinkomna och är oftast någonting man lägger ögonen på när man vandrar in i butiken. Nog för att den är liten, men den levererar och den gör det med god marginal.

Interview with Piresian Beach!

Piresian Beach is the alterego of Zsófia Németh, an hungarian artist that is somewhere in between lo-fi, garage and psychedelia. She’s been active since 2010 and have played live a few times too. She has self-released everything she’s ever made and her latest album was Alle Falle, which was well-received by the underground blogs but also some bigger papers in Hungary.
