WHARF CAT CONTINUES TO SLAY THE SUMMER OF 2015 WITH A SPLIT 7″ FROM PARQUET COURTS & JOEY PIZZA SLICE!

JPS+vs+PC+Split+Cover

Wharf Cat‘s  been absoultely slaying the summer of 2015 – with releases from Ancient Sky (Mosaic – LP/CD) in June, Sediment Club (PsychosymplasticLP/CD) in July, & their upcoming Ukiah Drag releases (Crypt Cruiser EP - LP, &  In The Reaper’s Quarters LP) in mid August (8/21 to be exact), you’d think they’d stop, survey the landscape & take a breath, right?

Hardly! Instead, they seriously up the ante on thesummer of 2015 – with a 7″ split single between heavyweights PARQUET COURTS & equal heavyweight (by sheer volume of pizza) JOEY PIZZA SLICE, out on 8/11. This 7″ slab is **almost pre-sold out**, & yes, more are arriving…

…In October.  The summer of 2015 is almost beyond us all, but the party….it starts now,  so ACT NOW!20140701-parquetcourts-x624-1404230070number2

KING DUDE EMERGES WITH “SONGS OF FLESH & BLOOD – IN THE KEY OF LIGHT” ON 7/24!

njrm013lpcd

The new LP/CD release from King Dude, Songs Of Flesh & Blood – In The Key Of Light is set to hit shelves on July 24th (LP) and July 31st (CD), courtesy of our pals at Not Just Religious Music, and we couldn’t be more thrilled. Nea – jazzed. Nea (again)  - hyper excited!!!!

“The King” (not, “The Dude” – that’s under copyright, thanks Cohen Bros!) will be hitting the road as well – call the neighbors, call your parents, call your enemies and get out to see him destroy (in the nicest way, possible, sonically, of course!):

Press?  It’s saying nothing other than “This is the King’s most personal writing to date, although still divined from the spiritual Light of the Lord, Songs of Flesh & Blood – In The Key of Light is not only a spiritual revelation it is also a revelation of the life of the man behind the music,” and that the album “is dark, emotional, and personal. But it’s also fun. King Dude and his bandmates excel at pushing the limits, and have released another hauntingly brilliant record.” (EV HARMS.COM). EXCLAIM! even passed along this shining rid-bit:

…the record mixes driving and distorted anthems like ‘Black Butterfly’ and mescaline-fuelled, castanet-clacking Tex-Mex shufflers like ‘Holy Water’ alongside more ruminative pieces like ‘Deal with the Devil,’ a song that has the baritone croak of the Dude contemplating a Faustian move in the name of love.”

ELECTRIC HAWK “II” – OUT & CRUSHING SKULLS NOW!!!!

ehk002lp

While we certainly have been celebrating the SCOTUS’ amazing and long-overdue decision today, we also want to direct your celebratory attention to Chicago’s own Electric Hawk.  They released their stellar new album Electric Hawk II on LP only back in . They’re a metal band, but don’t let that wrinkle your drawers.  They are the type of band that has an infectious current of fun (remember that?) woven in their skull crushing songs.  The Chicago Reader, even boasted about the band in the Best of Chicago 2015 issue recently ~

“Drummer Noah Leger, who plays in ultraminimal postpunk outfit Disappears, holds down a day job behind the kit in the Blue Man Group’s onstage backing band. In 2009, after years of throwing ideas around, he and two other Blue Man musicians, Las Vegas natives Mike Burns (guitar) and Graham McLachlan (bass), put their mutual love of Iron Maiden to work and formed the instrumental trio Electric Hawk, which has to be one of the gnarliest bands to worm its way out of that kid-friendly production. All three musicians can play at a wizardly level, and on the brand-new Electric Hawk II (recorded at Electrical Audio by all-things-heavy engineer Andrew Schneider, who’s also worked with the likes of Pelican, Cave In, and Big Business), they hammer out a virtuosic, over-the-top prog-metal epic, welding together complex rhythms, growling low end, and spaced-out guitar solos. It’s an impossibly heavy and incredibly fun album, and the band is even better live, with Leger’s dexterous drumming usually the focal point—it’s music for shredders by shredders.”

EYELIDS return with 12″ EP out June 23 (digital)/June 30 (physical)!!

jb123lp_12inch
Portland-based Eyelids, featuring John Moen (Decemberists) and Chris Slusarenko (Guided By Voices, Boston Spaceships), will release a Peter Buck-produced, self-titled EP on June 23 (digital)/June 30 (physical). “Broken Continue” is a short and sweet sampling of the band’s sound, a bright, full kind of folk rock. The video for “Broken Continue” features the group performing in very close quarters, as if onstage at an elementary-school play. The clip is a tribute to 1966 U.K. film Pop Gear.

Did we mention that the self-titled EP is limited edition of 500? Well, it is. Did we mention that all of ‘em are on blue color vinyl?  Well, they are! Act fast cuz once they are gone, they will remain so!
