VAE VICTIS - Ugly Reflection LP
We found a box of unplayed stock copies of this golden moldy from Jensen Ward's own deep dark past. Released in 2001, he played guitar and sang on this bad boy. Channeling RUDIMENTARY PENI and BORN AGAINST here for sure. These are the last untouched copies.
The bass player Chris went on to work for mega rock bands like Death Cab For Cutie, AFI and The Postal Service doing production work, he never stops touring. The drummer David, who is a sick photographer with gallery shows all over the world, played on Jimmy Fallon's show in a band called Phosphorescent a few months ago. Jensen sells punk records out of his garage and is highly regarded in the lowest circles.
NUDITY - Astronomicon LP w/download (LUNGS-062)
"Astronomicon features driving uptempo beats, ringing choruses, and twin-guitar harmonies that segue into improvised jams invoking the MC5 at their Sun Ra-channeling best, cruise through talkbox-laden breakdowns and finish with pulse-revving big bang crescendos. Inspiration for the tracks came from places as lofty as long summers spent working fire lookouts on remote mountaintops, to lowly as a need for cathartic musical release after inter-band fights.
As its arresting cover imagery (painted by Brittany Stallings) suggests, Nudity pulls listeners to a place where the earthiest, most carnal human attributes bend around to meet supernal desires, while vouching that lovers of grit-filled Rock'n'roll get a headbanging fix. You can liken it to time travel, space travel, or space-time travel, but once on board, Nudity will take you to sonic frontiers in a style all their own.
The current lineup might be their most impressive yet, bringing talent from bands such as the Tight Bro's From Way Back When, Hysterics, The Need, Sex/Vid, Broken Water and more." -internet
WALLS - The Future Is Wide Open LP w/download (LUNGS-028)
The paranoia and unease of one man is hard to measure physically. WALLS has done this sonically so that the more timid people out there don't have to get their hands quite so dirty. They will still have to do the work though. There is always the work.
'The Future Is Wide Open' is a sarcastic bite out of society's apple. And what a rotten apple indeed. Bursting with angst and tension, this album is a relentless hardcore punk/noise rock demon-sound.
There is no release from the future. The gates are shut.
FLESH WORLD - The Wild Animals In My Life LP w/download (LUNGS-064)
"It’s not often that fuzzed-out C86 jangle and brash queercore find common musical ground, Flesh World's inception focused less on their other bands (Limp Wrist, Needles and Brilliant Colors), and more on their mutual love for drag shows and punk gigs, as their vision took form in the under dwellings of San Francisco’s DIY scene." -Max Mohenu/Pitchfork
The Wild Animals In My Life is the first full album and second 12" sized record for this incredible reverb swarm. Knowing and growing from the past unto now, power is the underlying draw here. Lulled by the fist/pummeled by the euphoria.
1500 copies of 150g black vinyl in a 24pt full color jacket stuffed with a poster and download card. Front cover photo by J. Brian. Layout and additional art by Jess Scott. Engineered by Brad DerManouelian. Produced by Don Pyle.
**every once in a while the shipping amounts will seem insane (usually for multiple record int’l orders or US orders with shirts and records together) but rest assured we check each and every order and will refund any differences.
