Häxxan - Rodion

Mastering Häxxan “Rodion” on Geertruida and Twintoe Records.

“A brilliant piece of vinyl baring just 3 tracks. But ohhh, those three tracks are all Häxxan need to sweep you off your feet like an eagle snatching a little duckling from a pond.”

Youth Avoiders

Mastering Youth Avoiders “Spare Parts E​.​P.” on Build Me A Bomb Records, Destructure Records, and Deranged Records.

Taken from Razorcake: “These French punkers lay waste to everything within ten miles of this 45 with four tracks of fist-pumping hardcore that’s just dripping with hooks and a sound that is aggressive without being ham-fisted or meatheaded about it. Driving, catchy, scrappy, this’ll do all right by ye, homes. –Jimmy Alvarado”

Triage

Mastering Triage “Power Beat” on Larry Tony Produzioni.

Recorded by Jonah Falco.

“POWER BEAT is TRIAGE’s first commission to wax. It is without a doubt that this recording captures the true POWER that TRIAGE has on offer. Crusty & crunchy rhythm with soaring vocals and leads to match, backed by a lock-tight rhythm section. TRIAGE are one of those bands that are greatly in debt to punk’s past but with their eyes set on writing it’s future.”

spcaos

Remastering SP CAOS “Demo 1984” on Nada Nada Discos and Spicoli Discos.

“One of the most cult brazilian demo-tapes, recorded in january 1984 by Redson (Cólera) at his own Estudios Vermelhos and remastered from the original master cassette tape by Daniel Husayn. Some of these songs were released in many compilation tapes in Finland, France and Brazil. The band was heavily influenced by Finnish hardcore, but the raw recording give it a unique Brazilian touch to the songs. These songs are absolute raw, primitive, hardcore punk chaos in the most perfect, beautiful way. Vocalist, Anselmo, later became the bass player of INOCENTES and FOGO CRUZADO.”

VCR

Mastering VCR “R.I.P. Sportsboy” on Murder City Video, Barfbag Records.

“Finally, VCR is celebrating the release of “R.I.P. SPORTSBOY”! Is this VCR’s swan song? I don’t know. It is easily the band’s most ambitious work to date. Do they pants the Prime Minister? Do they kill a cop? Do they get abducted by aliens? Would you expect anything less from these punks? This is louder, brattier and more obnoxious than anything the band has ever done before. Toronto’s most important current punk act has finally given us their opus.”

Skiplickers

Mastering Skiplickers “s/t” on Kids of the Lughole.

“Following their brilliant spilt 7” with Krigskontrast the Yorkshire Mangel Mongers bring us another Bass rumbling riff slamming throat-wrecked D-beat monster of a record. For Fans of (early) Anti-Cimex, Discharge and of course the Skitlickers”

 

Catholic Guilt.jpg

Mastering Catholic Guilt “Cabin Fever” on Kim Pop Records.

“New release from this Austrian hardcore band. They’ve always borne more than a passing similarity to Sickoids, and they continue that pattern here, perhaps upping the Rudimentary Peni vibes even more.”

 

See No Evils

Mastering The See No Evils “Inner Voices” on Heavy Soul Records.

“The debut album from exciting new Leeds 4 piece The See No Evils.

Twelve tracks that deliver a sound rooted in a 60’s pop/garage sound, but with a modern twist which delivers the tunes from retrogression.

The two previous singles have proven that the band take influences from many genres over many years, be it 60s garage, 50 b-movie or 70s punk – no one track sounds the same.

Heavy Soul records are genuinely delighted to release this album!

Expect chiming guitars, impassioned vocals and songs that wont leave your head!”

Traitre Maxi 12in.jpg

Mastering Traitre “Dors Bien” on Les âmes d’Atala.

Taken from American Oi:

“In my previous review I already warned you guys that not one, but two Traitre seven inches will hit the streets this March. Where the first one is a two-track single, the second release, “Dors Bien”, is a full-blown EP with four brand new tracks! LADA Records, who also brought us the first two Traitre 45’s in 2014, has this slab of wax set for release on March 15th and comes in a total of 500 copies.

I already mentioned in my review on the “Humain En Vue” b/w “Un Pays À Détruire” single that Traitre delivered their best work to date. Since that 7” is coming out two weeks prior to “Dors Bien” I wasn’t exactly telling a lie, but I definitely think they top that single with this release! Because where “Humain En Vue” stood out with superb melodies, the “Dors Bien” EP stands out through sheer melancholy.

With hints of Manchester-alike post-punk mixed in their sound, there’s an apocalyptic feel to Traitre’s blend of Oi! and streetpunk that strongly reminds me of Criminal Damage and Blitz with a small touch of Warsaw / Joy Division to it. It’s funny how this band can merge completely different influences into each release, but still sound 100% Traitre. They amaze me with every single, EP or demo that has been released so far and “Dors Bien” is no exception!

Therefor I truly hope that Traitre will hit the studio soon again to record their first ever full-length album, because these guys sound more ready than ever! Don’t miss out on these guys and pick up “Dors Bien” and the single for Build Me A Bomb Records the moment they come out, you won’t regret it!”
