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
PLEASURE CROSS - Wait For The End 12" w/download (LUNGS-060)
Straight froward throat scraping thrashy hardcore punk with grind leanings from Portland OR. Members of many other bands but most directly related with our fine label by vocalist August Alston who quit Walls to start and focus on Pleasure Cross. Needless to say, this is serious business. So put on your high tops and camo pants and get your ass into the whirlwind.
500 copies on black vinyl to set the whole thing in motion.
KIM PHUC - Copsucker LP w/ download (LUNGS-022)
Originally slated to be released on Parts Unknown but delayed for a near eternity, ILR is fucking psyched to finally let you in to the inner circle with KIM PHUC's debut LP. Copsucker is the pinnacle sound of a band that has been crafting, honing and re-imagining the way punk music should be played, with so much raw atmosphere and energy that it will probably rip you apart. Be careful.
We believe they are that good.
If you have had the good fortune to see these guys live then you already know that they are unbelievably tight and intensely powerful without having to lean on novelty or pretense to hook you. Rob might accidentally rub some sweat mud on your pants front but once he's come down he'll most likely offer to clean that victory stain off lickety-split. For those unfamiliar with the KP sound, it lands somewhere near the idea of Warsaw era Joy Division on steroids with a distinct Pittsburgh edge.
THE WAIT IS OVER! Welcome home.
Repress on light blue vinyl.
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.
**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.
