“I haven’t heard anything quite like this all year long, and I’ve listened to damn near a 1000 different albums at this point, mostly good, some great, and a few, like Bask, get the nod as being magnificent.
~Ripple Music
“This record is a must-listen, I promise it doesn’t sound like anything else you’ve heard; if you’re looking for something to break the status-quo, Bask are for you.”
~Metal BlastIt’s a record that knows what it wants to be, and each song plays like a completed sentence in a well-told story.
~Mountain Xpress”There is something eerie about this album, it conjures up images of a slow boat making it’s way along the Mississippi river, surrounded by a thick mist. Bask are good at this, I suggest you get on this slow boat.”
~The Sludgelord”What we are left with to ponder is an album that is, at times, jaw-dropping in it’s ability to mold a unique and captivating sound around such a tangled web of genre label red tape.  It’s ascendancy of the highest order.”
~Lonesome Noise”In today’s “post rock” world, the spacey/psychedelic to heavy part has been done quite often but not as seamless as BASK does it. These guys give me hope that good rock bands still exist.”
~Rock n Reel

“This album was one of my top albums to look out for in 2015. Does it live up to expectations? You betcha. The Moth has delivered an album that outclasses the debut album in every respect. It seems The Moth have upped their game for this release as the album ventures into more progressive territory with elements of Thrash Metal appearing now and then. (…) The Moth have created an album that is going to end up on a few Best of 2015 album lists. It’s already grabbed a place on mine. And Then Rise is simply unmissable on every level.” The Sludgelord 2015

TCM 049 – Heads. – Debut LP/CD VÖ: 08.05.15

Preorderstart: 11.04.15 -> super fancy Cover Artwork – Gestanzt, Innenseite bedruckt! Hier gehts zur detailierten Cover Vorschau (Video!) 

“Noise Rock ja, und wie! Mittendrin im Mitt-90er Amphetamine Reptile Gedächtnis-Sound in geil! Seit geraumer Zeit frage ich mich, wie es sein kann, dass dieser Style so aus der Mode oder aus dem Focus geraten ist. Das gilt jungen Leuten vielleicht als altbacken. Pumpender, fies verzerrter Bass, sägende und schräge Gitarren, stoischer Beat voller Details, so muss das sein! Wenn der Gitarrist/Sänger tief singt (meistens), erinnert er an Tod A. in seiner besten Phase (Cop Shoot Cop), wenn er schreit (nicht so oft, dafür sehr eindringlich) klingt er wie ein junger und wütender Steve Albini, also eher Big Black als Shellac. Der Bass-Sound ist wirklich monströs, fett verzerrt und drückend, wie bei Hammerhead (US). Als letztes fallen mir noch Jesus Lizard als Vergleich ein, wegen der rhythmischen Präzision.“ Dancing To Architechture 

FFO: Jesus Lizard, Girls vs. Boys, Nick Cave, Black Heart Procession, Shellac oder My Disco

Die See Through Dresses LP/CD  wird am 13.03.2015 veröffentlicht!

FFO: Shout Out LoudsPains At Being Pure At Heart , My Bloody Valentine

Hannes, seines Zeichens Schlagwerker der Lost Girls und Tourfahrer von Tim Kasher, kontaktierte mich vor ein paar Monaten und schickte mir euphorisch die aktuelle LP der Vier. Kaspers Tim schwärmte wohl im Laufe seiner letzten Deutschland-Tour ordentlich von der See Through Dresses-Platte (wie sich für mich nachträglich rausstellte, hat die Gitarristin und Sängerin von See Through Dresses auf Kashers “Adult Film” Album mitgespielt und auch die komplette Tour mitgemacht) und Hannes dachte, es sei eine schöne Idee, wenn dieses ganz hervorragende Album auch in Europa erscheinen würde. Nach dem ersten Durchlauf war ich schon angefixt, nach mehrmaligen Hören begeistert.

Ich habe mich umgehend ins das Jahr 1995 versetzt gefühlt – ein Best Of des Neunziger-Indies von Sebadoh über Sonic Youth (z.B. “Pink Noise”) bis My Bloody Valentine… Der Sound ist natürlich keine neue Atomphysik, zündet bei mir aber mega hart -super Hooklines, zuckersüße Melodien, Traurigkeit und etwas Pathos… das sind die Zutaten für den perfekten Emo-Wetdream. Und neben den Einflüssen aus der alten Welt findet man aber auch Spuren von aktuellen Bands z.B. Shout Out Louds – der Gesang von “Get Sick Again”, Pains At Being Pure At Heart –  ”Glass” und die Male/Female Vocals im Generellen.

Das selbstbetitelte und selbst aufgenommen Debutalbum kam in einer Auflage von 550 LPs in den Staaten raus und wird im Frühjahr 2015 bei This Charming Man re-released. Die Band tourt Europa passend zum Albumrelease im Frühjahr/Sommer 2015.

Thanx to you all – welcome HEADS.

a great years is almost done and its time to say thank you for your support. i really appreciate your help and kind words. it’s a really cool thing to release so many great records and get so much positive feedback! thanx for that. i already saw a few of my bands in some of the 2014 best of lists – coolio!
anyways, there are great things to come – right now the represses of the Karies LP (on electric blue wax), the FJØRT LP (300x on tr.green with black color dust and 300x on cokebottle green wax) and the Warm Graves LP (on grey wax) are at the plant right now and hopefully at the warehouse right in time for their tour -> check the FJØRT, Warm Graves and Karies dates on their homepages! Also the See Through Dresses LP/CD will be in stock end of januar as well and a few others are almost ready to go.
The Moth will launch their second strike shortly – they recorded at the 141 Studio (Mantar) and it sounds terrific!

dunno if i already posted it: we are very grateful to announce a new This Charming Man member:
10352883_1555981884617852_929414000570316565_nHeads. from berlin- Formed in 2014 of two native Germans and one wandering Australian, HEADS. collectively are like-minded individuals, drawing inspiration from the same filthy pools. With a straight-up, no-frills approach, and influences as diverse as The Jesus Lizard, Shellac, Rowland S. Howard, and by the likes of Young Widows, My Disco, this trio are much more than the sum of their parts. Serendipity and pure good luck led to the paths of these musicians crossing. Fresh off the plane from Australia, with the sound of a former band disintegrating still ringing in his ears, vocalist and guitarist Ed Fraser set about finding new collaborators. The Ocean‘s bass player, Chris Breuer, meanwhile was seeking new creative outlets whilst on tour and when conversation started flowing with Ed, he roped in The Ocean road crew member, Hamburg-based Peter Voigtmann, on drums. With the key players in place, navigating geographical distances and writing a record was next on the agenda. Much of this took place whilst the members were spread out across the globe, often taking advantage of the backstage wifi at various festival, and arranging intense practices in Berlin when schedules aligned. When the song writing was over, the band headed into the studio with Jonathon Nido of Coilguns to commit the tracks to record. The album was recorded in September 2014 at Bikini Test in the Swiss Alps – a studio chosen for the size and complexities of the space available, which allowed the band to capture the dark intensity of their tracks perfectly. Taking their cues from Steve Albini’s school of thought, the band recorded live, getting down 13 tracks in three days -including a guest appearance from Louis Jucker of Coilguns – which have been whittled down to 6 for their debut. The record is mixed and mastered by Cult of Luna‘s Magnus Lindberg, who counts his own band, PG.Lost, Kongh and EF among his studio credits.

The Tidal Sleep / Orbit The Earth split LP is almost in the plant as well – we are still waiting for the masterfulness and then it should go very fast. hopefully this piece will be released in march/april 2015… more great announcements will follow shortly!
