Nightgaun - "Nightgaun" 7"

Nuclear addicts rejoice! Nightgaun from Tempe, AZ play straight forward Confuse/GAI worship with enough loud bass and weird feedback to keep it interesting. Reverbed vocals, unintelligible guitar noise, fast drums, and thundering bass. What's not to love?

To get a copy email the band at nightgaun82 (at) gmail (dot) com. If you not I'm sure some distros have this too.

Disgusting underrated hardcore punk from Cleveland, Ohio featuring knife enthusiast/hardcore maniac extraordinaire Chris Erba on vocals (H100's, Ruiners, Avon Ladies, etc.) Violent, obnoxious, fast and ugly hardcore done fucking right.

Gay Kiss - "Dumpster Rules"

Gay Kiss play demented hardcore punk that has drawn comparisons to Born Against, Rorschach, PageNinetyNine and Salvation. They don't sound like any of those bands, but I can't think of any better comparisons. This band is truly unique, going back and forth between art damaged and noisy to fast and heavy seamlessly.

Anyone who has witnessed them live can attest to their power and insanity.

Mad Men - "Suspiria"

Download | Purchase
Mid-paced stomping hardcore from Canada. Featuring a Jonah Falco from the mighty Fucked Up and the mightier Career Suicide, respectively. This 7" opens with a heavy as fuck cover of the Suspiria theme, turned into one wickedly creepy hardcore song. This band reminds me of Poison Idea, which rules. This is highly recommended.

Slices - "Modern Bride" single

Download | Purchase
Noisy hardcore behemoths SLICES quickly became one of my favorite current bands and have yet to let up. This 7" single marks a change of pace with Slices drudging into garage rock territories. Don't let that deter you, this is still dissonant hardcore punk at it's finest.

And fear not because Slices will be rearing their ugly head once again to release "Still Cruising" later this year on Iron Lung Records. You can listen to a preview track here.

Vanishing Leper

Fucking awesome and weird. Vanishing Leper had members of Dry Rot and sound nothing like them. Kinda reminiscent of late Unwound, with Middle Eastern sounding riffs thrown in. Solid release. Vinyl is limited to 100 so act fast. All digital proceeds go to Amnesty International, so if you like it BUY IT.

The cover is flat black, that's not a broken image.

Suburbanite - Suburbanite

Gruff, noisy and tough hardcore punk from New York. Featuring some likely suspects in the Youth Attack camp. Not unlike early New York Hardcore, or modern bands like Urban Blight. Lo-Fi recordings, short songs, tough vocals, and urgent delivery. Some stand out songs on this 7". "Winter Soldier" and "Ruling Class Rebel" are clearly the hits of the record, so to speak. Not to be missed.
