Beta Blockers are here with their debut 12@. What do they sound like_ They sound like Die Kreuzen fucking about with the Screamers, or maybe Black Flag smashing gurners with Neubauten, or how about Stooges getting punished by the Gallagher brothers, maybe even all of those at the same time. Seven songs in eighteen minutes, housed in a heavyweight sleeve featuring artwork from Keegan Dakkar Lomanto. Limited to 300 copies and with download.
Nearly ten years of beating around the bush, casually playing around the world and drip releasing music along the way, Career Suicide is backed by their best lineup ever, ready to break back through themselves with this new full length. Machine Response veers in and out of pure speed, bursts of melody, and chunky tempo shifts, indenting the long standing influence of early 80s USHC, late 70s punk, and a peppering of 60s swagger, with their own clearly developed style.

Producing incisive, tongue/in/arse/cheek, indefatigably now/punk, Perth/based Cold Meat will have you fisting the air, but only if you lube up first.
Swirling psychedelic D/Beat madness from Melbourne, Australia with members of KRĂ–MOSOM, GENTLEMEN and POWER. Acidic fuzz guitars and wild distorted vocals snarling out 10 songs about suffering, vulnerability, paranoia and banality are what make up the perfect texture of living in today-s doomed world. -Perfect Texture- offers about as much comfort as a swarm of angry bees whose nest has just been kicked. 400 copies with a huge full colour poster and lyric sheet housed in a 350gsm glossy sleeve.
A nasty follow up EP to the Perfect Texture LP finds Melbourne-s GELD in a more irascible and unhinged state. Soft Power expands on the band-s vision of a freer form of D/Beat with noisier sounds, tighter dimensions, wilder visions and subtler experimentation with carefully placed nuances. Don-t be tricked into thinking this is some sort of hippy dippy jam band bullshit though, every second of this is cruelly calculated and executed with the utmost care. Reverse board pocket sleeve with lyric insert. Limited to 300 copies.
