bitch brothers - Self Titled

| No Comments
The bitch brothers Self Titled debut is now released. bitch brothers are a three piece band from beautiful Worcester, MA. Believing very much in the ethos put forth by the Minutemen and Fugazi, we jam econo - doing as much as we can ourselves. We work the night shift to make a sound that is new, yet still influenced by the the artists we love. This self-titled release encompasses the spirit of our musical democracy. The first half of the album, tracks 1-9, represent their structured and focused studio side. The second half, tracks 10-16, were recorded during several practices and represent their looser, improvisational side. Sixteen tracks in all, you can download the track Son of the Seventies and pick up a copy of the cd at the label webpage.

Wooden Shjips Remixes EP

| No Comments
Wooden Shjips have announced the release of a new 12" remix EP. This is a 28 minute EP featuring exclusive remixes from Andrew Weatherall, Sonic Boom of Spacemen 3 and Kandodo. After a full listen, the Sonic Boom mix is basically him playing all their songs at once at the same volume level. Lazy and barely listenable. The other tracks clearly have more effort put into them. This comes packaged in a full color LP jacket and is limited to only 2,500 copies - 2,000 copies on black and 500 copies on clear vinyl with black streaks. While this will ship in mid to late February, if you order now you'll get a download of the tracks. Pick it up here.
