PJ Bond/Brian Bond – Brother Bones/Baby Bones – 12″
The “Brother Bones/Baby Bones” split, comprised of four new songs each, ranging from lush, full band arrangements to the quiet, intimate and beautiful. Fans of honest, real music will find a home with this record and will enjoy spending late night spins picking through its many layers. While PJ has kept quite the profile up doing 300+ shows a year, Brian has fronted arguably one of the best kept secrets in New Jersey music, New Brunswick’s Communipaw. Black Numbers – … Read More

LUTHER – Siblings and Sevens – 12″
Black Numbers The debut EP from Philadelphia’s LUTHER. Forming in late 2010 Luther bring back memories of a simpler and more organic time in rock music. While making no attempts to hide their punk rock roots Luther replace the overt aggression flooding the current world of punk with passion and a sincere sense of urgency. Living in South Philadelphia, Luther’s exposure to the city’s diverse music scene creates a varied sound that results in a refreshing mixture of indie, punk … Read More

Love Of Everything – Sooner I Wish – 7″
Bobby Burg (Joan of Arc, Make Believe, Vacations) has certainly been active lately.
Within the past couple years he self-released Love of Everything’s seventh full-length, Best In Tensions, and teamed up with Jeremy Bolen (Chin Up Chin Up) to put out a 13-song Vacations 7″.
As well, he’s been a mainstay in Joan of Arc for the last nine years – playing bass on the Chicago-based band's last two albums while touring the U.S. and Europe multiple times in support of those records.
On top of all this, Burg and his wife (ex-LOE drummer) recently got divorced…
As a result, Sooner I Wish, the latest offering from Burg’s solo project Love of Everything, features four of his most personal songs to date.
“A lot of it involves dealing with a divorce and not knowing how to start again with another person,” says Burg. “The lyrics are written from contradictory perspectives, switching line by line between the person who wants to end the relationship and the person who wants to make things work.”
Recorded live with a loop pedal and no overdubs except on the vocals, these tracks feature new drummer Matt Holland (Air Waves, Vacations) and were shaped in moments of down time during Vacations' practices.
Although the record clocks in just below nine minutes, Burg's catchy melodies stick in your head instantly upon first listen and are sure to linger there long after the songs have ended.
Banquets / Mayflower – Cassette
Dust off your cassette players and take a listen to this. Two great bands on one shiny icy blue cassette. Two new songs from each band, plus a cover song each. Banquets takes on ‘Versatility’ by Hot Rod Circuit and Mayflower covers ‘Travelin’ Band’ by CCR.
Side A: Banquets
1. “Sexy Ghosts ”
2. “Unforgiven V”
3. “Versatility” (Written by: Hot Rod Circuit)
Side B: Mayflower
1. “Cork High”
3. “Travelin’ Band” (Written by: John Fogerty)
These are limited ‘icy blue’ cassettes (/100) with incredible artwork. I highly recommend picking this up! Both bands are incredible and compliment each other very well on this release.
This is a co-release between Shouting Street Audio Cassettes (Shout#04) and Black Numbers (BN-025)
Grey Area / Go Rydell – 7″
This split 7″ marks the first release by the newly reformed NYC veterans Grey Area in over 10 years and pairs them with Florida's best and brightest, Go Rydell. Grey Area (ex members of Warzone, Token Entry, Black Train Jack, and a slew of others) reignited their passion for playing together with two sold-out reunion shows in New York and Philadelphia and a surprise special guest set at This is Hardcore 2010. On the heels of these hugely successful shows comes the band's first recorded effort in their post-Victory Records career. More than holding their own, pop punk/hardcore favourites Go Rydell, named one of Alternative Press's 100 bands you need to know in 2010 deliver two of their most melodic songs to date. Having shared the stage with Terror, H20, Title Fight, and recently named to This is Hardcore 2011, the Florida quintet has been quietly building a name for themselves for years. The first pressing of 500 is nearly sold out.

Bangers – Small Pleasures – LP
The new BANGERS album “Simple Pleasures” packs intelligent lyrics and tight musicianship into a mid-tempo punk rock melee. The record is littered with subtle hooks, head-bobbing breakdowns, and endearingly gruff vocals. Couple those components with an amazingly warm sound it makes this full length incredibly authentic sounding. It’s hard to put a finger on what one thing that makes you want to listen to “Small Pleasures” on repeat but I guess that is what makes it so darn perfect. Great music for drinking to, or driving to, just try not to do them both at the same time.
1994! – Most Deaf – 7″
Purple vinyl – first pressing
Lancaster PA’s 1994! are a heavy duo de force. The songs on “Most Deaf” just don’t let up. A plethora of attitude with belted out hoarse vocals, soaring riffs, and grooving tempos make it reminiscent of a lot of the great emocore bands of the 90’s. (Yeah “emocore,” because that’s what kids called it back then, before it became a generic, over produced, over hyped, fashionable, and haircut driven bastardization that everyone knows today.) Time to stop ranting, trust us this is totally worth checking out!
–Kiss Of Death Records–
Mall’d To Death – Can’t Make a Living – 12″
Very catchy stuff! The title is linked to their Punknews profile where you can stream this. We have gold and black vinyl to choose from.
The vinyl is a one-sided 12″ and it has 7 bonus tracks from their session for OUT OF STEP on Radio K.
With artwork by Corey Ayd of Banner Pilot.
Dirty Tactics – The Divine Middle – 7″
Philadelphia's Dirty Tactics bring 5 tracks (4 on the vinyl) melodic mid tempo punk rock to the table on The Divine Middle EP. Sometimes sad sounding, sometimes upbeat, sometimes angry, this is a complete record that doesn't stick to any generic or worn formulas. Lyrically, each song unfolds like a short story. Musically, the band has honed their chops and really kept a focus on dynamics in their song-writing. There are hints of Against Me!, hints of Americana at times, but these boys can't be pegged down to any one genre or “sound alike” band.
This EP was recorded by The Pete from the Bouncing Souls. Definitely worth checking out!
First pressing, coloured vinyl.
