Stephen O’Malley

While everyone is talking about Soused, the collaboration record from Scott Walker and SunnO))) I just found a super mixtape compiled by Stephen O’Malley, one half of SunnO))) and Ideologic Organ label boss.

This mammoth mixtape finds O’Malley on typically mischievous form, as he plucks divisive works from a grab bag of recent listening material. It’s not for the faint of heart (as if you needed warning) at a generous three hours long, but let it sink in and you’re bound to discover plenty of drool-inducing, barely-heard gems.

Maybe it gives you an idea where his influences are coming from. And during listening to his compilation make sure you check out his recent Ideologic Organ label sampler.

Salad Days

Listening to Dag Nasty right now. So, it’s not a big surprise we’re fans of DC bands and their sound. An upcoming documentary tells this story.

Salad Days: The Birth of Punk In The Nation’s Capital is a documentary that examines Washington, D.C.’s 1980s hardcore punk scene. The film is centred on a movement that spawned a laundry list of influential bands including Minor Threat, Bad Brains, Rites of Spring and Fugazi as well as seminal labels such as Dischord and Teen Beat.

Watch the trailer below. Seriously, I can’t wait.

Robotic Empire

In the early 2000s I was totally into the label roster of Robotic Empire. All their releases were ace and I’m still listening to most of them (like Pg.99, Neil Perry, Daughters, The Now, …). Not sure why but at some point I lost track of Robotic Empire. Today I found this.

Celebrating 15 years as an independent record label, Robotic Empire gives you “Blood”, a 30 track free mixtape comprised entirely of label alumni’s side projects, solo material and/or otherwise rare/unreleased songs. Enjoy!

Pig Destroyer

First of all Pig Destroyer’s new EP isn’t new material. Mass & Volume was written and recorded during the final day of the Phantom Limb session in 2007. And it shows  the more slower and doomy element of Virginia’s supergrinder. Listen to the B-Side Red Tar below.

Today is the day. We’re celebrating our 8th store birthday at Tiefgrund with a big big party. There will be food, coffee (Adagio830, of course), music and somewhere in the middle Al Burian (of Milemarker and Challenger fame) will read some stories. Running order looks a bit like this.

First band will be around 6 on stage. So, I guess we’ll see you in a bit. Can’t wait.
