    Pressed On 180 Gram White With Black Haze Vinyl

    Manic Compression is the second and most recent studio album by American post-hard core band Quicksand, released on February 28, 1995 on the major label Island Records. The album is considered to be influential to many Post Hardcore and Alternative Metal bands and it is often viewed as the bands best work it is also the band's most successful release, peaking at number 135 on the Billboard 200.

    Manic Compression would be Quicksand's last studio album before their first split in October 1995. They did work on a follow-up album during their 1997-1999 reunion, but it never materialized.

    Slip (Awaiting Repress)

    Legendary NYC post-hardcore act Quicksand will be rereleasing a very special edition of their debut album, Slip via Shop Radio Cast. First official vinyl reissue of Quicksands major label debut ''Slip'' since its original pressing in 1993. Remastered and pressed on limited edition 180 Gram vinyl. Housed in a gatefold jacket and includes a Euro inner sleeve, never-before-seen photos, and a cover of The Smith's ''How Soon Is Now.''


    Founded in 1990 by frontman Walter Schreifels, Quicksand rose to notoriety in the '90s, with many dubbing the band a key pioneer in New York City's post-hardcore scene. Along with a sophomore release, Slip launched the band on a series of North American and European tours in the '90s alongside the likes of Rage Against The Machine, Anthrax, and more. The band would eventually disband in 1999, but recently reunited for a one-night-only gig in June, 2012.

    Satisfaction Is The Death Of Desire (Awaiting Repress)

    Colored Vinyl


    Take the fierce energy of a hardcore band, add a touch of metal and what you unleash is the perfect combination only known as New Haven CT's Hatebreed. Tired with the current state of heavy music singer Jamey Jasta wanted to asssemble music that would hit everyone over the head and begin the awakening.


    Jamey states that was the reason we started this band. In Connecticut in 1993 people considered Quicksand hardcore and I'm thinking 'no way this is indie rock.' We wanted simple songs with simple song structures. All out brutality, 30 seconds and it is done. Aptly put by Thrasher, Hatebreed means business, they don't fuck around, and they don't waste your time.


    Their 1997 Victory Records debut Satisfaction is the Death Is The Satisfaction of Desire is a certifiable hardcore phenomenon, a top selling release that continues to make strides and has sold more copies than any other debut in the history of the label. If you can't quite put your finger on it, Jamey will for you, This recording has that evil, it resides in all of us. It's what fuels us. Colored vinyl pressing from Victory Records with MP3 digital download.

    Deja Entendu


    Huge Demand For Vinyl Pressing Of The Classic Release From Brand New


    Gatefold Jacket With Original Artwork


    Pressed On 180 Gram Black Vinyl


    As the popularity of emo and punk-pop plateaued, many bands had a lot to prove to stay in the game. As of 2003, Brand New had sidestepped any notion that they'd be stuck in the prototypical mold found on Your Favorite Weapon. Unlike their debut, Deja Entendu isn't all about bitter breakups and doesn't fall into a permanent punk-pop hole. Produced by Steven Haigler (Pixies, Quicksand), this sophomore effort finds Brand New maturing, reaching for textures and song structures instead of clichÉs. They still, however, alternate their full-on blasts with slower acoustic work, which doesn't hurt. Many antiromantic lyrics such as my tongue is the only muscle on my body that works harder than my heart saturate the [album], but there's still some resentment with downers such as I hope you come down with something they can't diagnose and don't have a cure for. The Quiet Things That No One Ever Knows is one of the stronger tracks and isn't so much a fresh entry as it is a rewrite of their semihit Jude Law and a Semester Abroad. It's not quite dÉjà vu; it's just consistent. -Kenyon Hopkin (All Music Guide)

    Quicksand / Cradlesnakes (Deluxe)

    Deluxe Reissue Of Quicksand / Cradlesnakes - Califone's Second, Critically Acclaimed Full-length That Has Been Long Out-Of-Print


    Includes Bonus LP With Previously Unreleased Tracks


    In the summer of 2002, Tim Rutili and the rest of Califone had just come out of a busy year that included touring with Yankee Hotel Foxtrot-era Wilco and collaborating with Issac Brock's alter-ego project, Ugly Casanova. With new creative energy unlocked, the band began work on the follow-up to their breakout full-length debut, Roomsound. The result, the much-celebrated Quicksand / Cradlesnakes, brims with earned confidence.


    Here, Califone began to master the mix of blues, country and technical glitchery so oft-referenced today, all the while creating something timeless. Quicksand / Cradlesnakes is rugged and elegant, dark and optimistic, familiar and entirely new. In a word it is beautiful.

    Aeges second full length album, Above & Down Below, sees them galloping confidently over any notion of a sophomore slump. Expanding upon the foundation of the sound that already drew influence from the 90s post-hardcore era, the new record mixes that same heavy edge of Quicksand with the more melodic heavy rock sheen of Soundgarden, Alice In Chains and Queens of the Stone Age. The album was mixed and mastered by Matt Hyde (Deftones, Slayer, Behemoth) at his home studio. Casey Howard (Mastodon, Deftones, The Mars Volta) handled the art direction, design and layout for the album.

    An Open Letter To The Scene

    Reissued For The First Time Since 2010


    Pressed On Colored Vinyl


    Includes Bonus 2-Song 7" Vinyl


    He may not be a mainstream mainstay, but mention the name Walter Schreifels to
    anyone even tangentially involved in the punk or hardcore scene and chances are you'll be met
    with borderline reverence. From his tenure in legendary hardcore bands like Gorilla Biscuits and
    Youth Of Today to his work in the pioneering post-hardcore act Quicksand and cult favorites like
    Rival Schools, Schreifels has proved himself to be one of the most talented and diverse songwriters
    of his generation. Over two decades after GB released their landmark album Start Today,
    Schreifels transcended his hardcore roots and showed another side of his constantly shifting skin
    with his solo debut An Open Letter To The Scene.


    From stripped-down acoustic meditations like the album's title track to Schreifels' psychedelic-tinged
    cover of Agnostic Front's "Society's Sucker" and an intricately arranged version
    of his CIV Classic "Don't Gotta Prove It," An Open Letter To The Scene is arguably the first
    project Schreifels has ever recorded that manages to incorporate all of his diverse influences and
    recontextualize them into a cohesive whole.

    Displacement (Awaiting Repress)

    Cascading keyboards, unnerving guitars, off-kilter rhythms, and the grotesque lyricism of THE PHANTOM LIMBS forge a grandiose monument on the verge of collapse like a gothic cathedral built on quicksand.


    Their unsettling ilk of carny death rock & punk draws comparisons to The Screamers and Christian Death or contemporaries like the Subtonix, but don't expect today's glut of punks-with-keyboards playing 80s redux! THE PHANTOM LIMBS have carved out a lonesome place for themselves, finding inspiration in Kurt Weill rather than Duran Duran & Culture Club.

    Moon Queen

    Ask anyone who lived through it and they'll tell you that the '70s will never be bettered for rock. Connecticut's Lord Fowl know this as well as anyone but rather than simply cruise by on retro clichÉs, they add touches of stoner, grunge and heavy psych to give their arena-worthy anthems a bit more kick. With a strong emphasis on soulful crooning, groove over heaviness and big choruses (and maybe a little cheese) they hit up stomping southern rock in the vein of Skynyrd (Quicksand), rip-roaring metal (Streets Of Evermore) and power-pop (The Queen Is Not Impressed) with flair, attitude and confidently understated guitarwork. The balance between poppier cuts and darker, more substantial numbers is a tricky one but the lunar luminaries pull it off comfortably. If you dig Mountain, Camaros and Pabst, these are your new brothers in arms.

    With Love (On Sale)

    Prize Country click together perfectly. For the last 3 years it's if the only time they're not on tour is to write songs and record them. Having dished out a full length, a few EPs, and a bunch of splits they took some time to hone the songs that would comprise With Love, their second full length and debut for Hex Records. These four road dogs create music that is rooted in early 90's post-hardcore dynamics of sound, texture, and a good deal of heaviness that brings to mind Quicksand, Drive Like Jehu, Fugazi, as well as later-era Snapcase and then cranks the volume to obscene levels so as to destroy audiences right after they knock their socks off with their energy and musicianship. Prize Country will be tour throughout the Fall, covering these United States before embarking on a European tour in the Winter. After that, who knows? More than likely either back on the road or writing more songs in their never-ending quest for the perfect riff.

    Sunset Blvd (Instrumental)

    Instrumental


    Delicious Vinyl will proudly release Sunset Blvd., the new album from Yancey Boys, the group piloted by John "Illa J" Yancey and Frank Nitt. The dynamic new collection is built around previously unheard tracks created by Illa J's brother: the late, great J Dilla (James Yancey). With Frank Nitt's standing as J Dilla Music Catalog Curator and the official approval of Yancey Media Group, all productions on Sunset Blvd. originate from The Lost Scrolls - the stunning cache of beats Dilla left behind.


    With its rapturous single "Quicksand" featuring Common, Sunset Blvd. also teams Yancey Boys with De La Soul's Posdnuos ("Beautiful"), The Pharcyde's SlimKid3 ("Rock My World"), and T3 of Slum Village ("Jeep Volume"), making it clear that the Dilla legacy is being represented by those who knew and collaborated with Dilla in his lifetime. Additional guests on Sunset Blvd. include DJs Rhettmatic, C-Minus, and JRocc (Beat Junkies) as well as rap roughneck Guilty Simpson and R&B strongman Eric Roberson. "We've created an album that would make Dilla proud," says Frank Nitt, who grew up with Dilla in Detroit. "But this isn't a nostalgia trip: Dilla's beats were so future-forward that they're right on time in 2013, and we've assembled the best artists possible to represent that."

    Heat Wave

    Born in Eufaula, Alabama, in 1941, the 3rd of 11 children, Martha Reeves moved with her family to the Motor City - Detroit, Michigan - when she was less than a year old. Like so many other R&B and soul singers of the era, she was raised on gospel and started singing in the church, but before long the secular interests of doo-wop and R&B won out and by the age of 18 she had joined her first vocal group, The Fascinations. In 1960 she joined the group that would eventually become Martha & The Vandellas (named after Martha's childhood street, Van Dyke, and her singing idol, Della Reese). After filling in on backup vocals for Marvin Gaye's classic "Stubborn Kind Of Fellow", the group signed their own recording contract with Motown's Gordy label. By the following year, they were having massive chart success with this album's title track, "Heat Wave", and "Quicksand" (both of which were written by the new songwriting trio of Holland-Dozier-Holland). Compiling many of those early hit singles in 1963, Heat Wave is a quintessential piece of the Motown Sound that every record collection needs.

    Paul Walker

    Consisting of Patrick Kindlon (End of A Year, Self Defense Family), Chris Villeneuve (drums), Nick Cogan (guitar), Cory Galusha (guitar) and Pat Wynne (bass), Drug Church is the sound garbage makes when thrown off a roof into the dumpster your dickhead boss rented for your underpaying contractor gig. Come back in a few weeks and steal the copper piping because there's no other benefit to the job and you're probably getting sick from asbestos, so to hell with it.


    Borrowing heavily from bands like Seaweed and Quicksand, Drug Church released their debut, self-titled EP in July of 2012, the perfect record to listen to as you skate home from your night shift cleaning up puke in the bathroom of a Steak & Shake. It even scored the band a spot on Alternative Press' "100 Bands You Need To Know" list earlier this year!


    2013 rolled around the guys took a break from delivering pizzas and entered the studio to record their first full-length, Paul Walker; surely named for their secret obsession with 'Varsity Blues' and 'Eight Below.' And the thought of letting these dudes wild again in the studio scared the shit out of No Sleep President Chris Hansen; rightfully so!


    No Sleep offered us a bunch of money and suggested producers to record this LP with and we said, 'Bro. You forgot the struggle, you forgot the streets," Kindlon says. "We're recording this as the coregods intended: Quick and nasty.' So what's what we did. Pushpit.


    Nonetheless, the guys somehow managed to crank out ten of the gnarliest tracks you'll hear all year long, including the new song, "Donny's Woods."


    For everyone who ever thought about faking their own death, we present 'Donny's Woods' a song about how quickly people will forget about your ass, Kindlon tells AltPress.com.


    One thing people won't forget though is how awesome Paul Walker is...oh and the album is pretty good too!

    Shed (Awaiting Repress)

    Originally formed in 2003 by guitarist/vocalist Jamie Rhoden and the twin brother duo of vocalist/bassist Ned Russin and drummer Ben Russin when the trio were barely teenagers, Title Fight started as a way for these young kids to explore their burgeoning love of hardcore. But after adding guitarist Shane Moran in 2005, something funny happened; their tireless practicing eventually transformed them into one of the most exciting hardcore acts in recent memory.


    After releasing a handful of EPs and 7s as well as performing shows all over the world, Title Fight began attracting attention from fans and labels who were captivated by the way the band managed to put a modern spin on the melodic hardcore sound pioneered by acts like Gorilla Biscuits and Lifetime and in 2010 the members of Title Fight dropped out of college in order to tour full-time with acts such as New Found Glory, Four Year Strong and H20. It was also around this time that the band entered the studio with Gorilla Biscuits/Quicksand guitarist Walter Schreifels who agreed to produce the band and promptly drove down to Northeastern Pennsylvania to help them prepare to record their highly anticipated full-length debut Shed.


    From there the band headed to Philadelphia to record Shed over a grueling two-week period at the legendary Studio 4. However all those long nights paid off as Shed sees the band implementing various subgenres that range from old-school hardcore to aggressive punk rock that make these twelve energetic anthems instant classics for a new generation of listeners searching for music that inspires them as much as Title Fight were inspired by their heroes.


    Weve been a band for seven years and this is the first time weve had a recording thats longer than seven minutes long, says Ned Russin. The last year has been a crazy ride but the whole time weve always stayed true to the fact that were not trying to be anything were not, he summarizes. Were four friends that play in a band together and we would still be doing this whether we were playing to five people or five hundred of them.

    As Good As Dead

    Local H will dig into their back catalog and release their breakthrough album As Good As Dead on 180 gram vinyl via srcvinyl. This re-issue marks the first time that the album will ever be available in this format. The high-quality, double LP will have a premium gatefold jacket and insert.


    As Good As Dead, Local H's second full-length album, was produced by Steven Haigler (Quicksand, Pixies) and was originally released on April, 16, 1996 on Island Records on CD and cassette. The record was the band's first foray into making a concept album and is centered around life in a dead-end, small town. Venerable rock critic Robert Christgau gave the album a stellar A- review in the Village Voice, writing, at the time, "...I wish Pearl Jam, whose leader stars in the title song, packed such isometric power -- that sense of tremendous force bravely exerted against implacable reality -- and I say the exercise makes all of us stronger."


    "The question I get asked the absolute most is when are we gonna put the older records out on vinyl?" says Local H frontman, Scott Lucas. "Here's the answer -- in the best possible way. The package is looking pretty good and I'm ALMOST as excited as anybody to finally drop the needle on this album -- on double vinyl, at last."


    As Good As Dead spawned four modern rock radio hits including the above-referenced "Eddie Vedder," "Fritz's Corner," "High-Fivin' MF" and "that copacetic song" -- "Bound for the Floor," a track that remains a staple on alternative radio station playlists around the the country two decades later. The band made videos for each of the singles.


    Local H, whose members during this time period were Lucas and original drummer Joe Daniels, toured the U.S. non-stop for two years after As Good As Dead was released, headlining their own small and large club shows; opening for Silverchair in bigger venues and Stone Temple Pilots in even bigger arenas (including Madison Square Garden in New York and Rosemont Horizon in Chicago); and performing to audiences of thousands at radio station festivals across the the country, including 1997's HFStival at RFK Stadium in Washington, DC. They toured Australia and played some played some European shows on this album, as well.

    Willis (Out Of Stock)

    And so the Pietasters serve up their most varied album yet, quite a feat for a band that had always prided itself on its unique mix of stylings. Willis' inspired blend of styles boasts some of the group's most awesome arrangements to date -- garage punk ("Crazy Monkey Woman"); ska-fueled, Brit-beat-flavored, funk-fired soul ("Stone Feeling"); reggae-fied, surf-side; C&W-soul ("Higher"); calypso-fied Two Tone (a new cut of their vintage "Without You"); pop/rock goes ska ("Ocean"); flashy, brass-fueled R&B ("Bitter"), and that's not even taking into account the covers. There's a bright and bubbly version of the Outsiders' 1966 hit "Time Won't Let Me," flush with organ and brash with brass, but with the starring role falling to Tom Goodin's Chuck Berry-styled guitar solo; a pumping version of Martha & the Vandellas' "Quicksand," inspired by the Jam's cover of that group's "Heat Wave," and a storming take on James Easter's "New Breed." But for all the eclecticism, there are also some straight-out skankers, like the frenetic "Fat Sack," and the anthemic "Out All Night" -- the latter destined to become the band's theme song. The slower paced "Moment," awash in dizzying horns and sharp staccato beats, is also a blast from the past, albeit the band's own, the sole, heady, reminder of their previous styling. As surprising as the shift in musical sound is, equally amazing is Jackson's vocals, reaching never-before-attained heights of power. Every track on this set is memorable, the melodies irresistible, the hooks inescapable, the musicianship flawless as always, and the arrangements stunning, with the production highlighting each and every ounce of the band's strength. Phenomenal. ~ Jo-Ann Greene
