Actually, the Saddest Landscape is an even closer peer: They started up 10 years ago in Boston. Frontman Andy Maddox recalls catching PG. 99 early on in the decade. “When I first heard them, honestly they kind of seemed like a mess to me, but really kind of entertaining,” he says. “They would…
Hi guys! I was just wondering if you have any recommendations as to who to press records through as an unsigned band. We've had a 7" done through Pirates Press earlier this year, and they were fantastic to work with and the quality was top notch but having a few extra options is always great. Thanks heaps, hopefully I'll see you in Australia one day!
hey there! honestly, we’ve had the same great experience with Pirates Press recently. Would recommend sticking with them, but that’s just our opinion :)
As we do pretty much every weekend, we all convene in the middle of CT to practice and fart around. Part of our weekend ritual, without fail, is to stop by Red Scroll Records and fart around even more there. Here’s what I got over the weekend:
Really like this ep. I heard it last year and i think they had put it out themselves at the time. Run for Cover re-released it with some extra acoustic tracks which I’m looking forward to checking out. They remind me of the band Park from a few years back, but much darker. You can pick up a copy here.
If you love 90’s skate punk like I do, you’ll probably be just as stoked on this. Super catchy, technical as a motherfucker. This album just rips. Musically, it reminds me a lot of Propagandi’s Supporting Caste, albeit a lot more poppy and with much different lyrical content. RIYL: Lagwagon, Strung Out, No Use for a Name.
We’re happy to announce that on October 18th we will be releasing Native’s Wrestling Moves on vinyl. Wrestling Moves was recorded in 2009 at Red Room Studios with Chris Common (Pelican, These Arms Are Snakes) and originally released on CD in January of 2010 by Sargent House.
Guys, I must say, I have finally really sunken my teeth into a solid chunk of your releases and I am loving what I am hearing. Keep on keepin' on. Would love to catch a live show if you play in Michigan anytime soon.
i just wanted to let you all know that we got the represses of both the we were skeltons and pianos become the teeth 7”s in stock and now shipping from our store.
and in honor of this excitement the next 25 orders or so will receive a free topshelf records sampler CD (pictured above) filled with amazing bands, did i mention FREE!, does free turn you on?
who knows maybe you will also get a zonestad dvd, maybe.
in other news i finally did more updates to the tsl releases/discog page (link is above), and just for shits i included a bunch of old shirts we did so if that is your bag scroll all the way to the bottom of the page.
What an amazing collection ... and such nice commentary, to boot. It just pains me to think that one of you guys is listening to all this great stuff on that stinky turd of a turntable, the Crosley pictured in the Moving Mountains post. Say it ain't true!
that’s nice to hear that you like the blog, thank you! and yeah- that crosley sucks :) Was a gift so keep it for sentimental value, but learned quickly that it does not sound good at all unfortunately.
I’d heard of Pulling Teeth a bunch over the past few years, but honestly never checked them out until recently because our friend kyle has a part on funerary. It’s an excellent record- one that I’ve come to appreciate more and more with each listen through. My only initial complaint at first was the vocals- they’re got that 90’s NYHC sorta snarl to them that usually isn’t my personal cup of tea. But, I’ve grown to actually really enjoy and appreciate them on future spins. Musically- I’d say it’s a combination of new and old school hardcore, metal, and some thrash to boot. It’s an ugly, pummeling record, no doubt. And one that might not register with you off the bat. But with some time, you might come to find that there’s a lot of beauty beneath the surface and a very rewarding listen.
If you’re into aggressive music, Funerary is easily one of the year’s best. Highly recommended. You can pick up a copy HERE from A389 Records, and some pics are below as well.
