Sucker Mule’s Dreadful Murder

(Suitcase) LP $16.50 (Out-of-stock)

Hysterical and impulsive discomfort-noir by Italian guitarist / vocalist Filomena Rubino, whose distinct dissonance relies “on howling, post-industrial ambiance” and “grinding drift,” to quote Creative Loafing. She brings songs to life via “surprisingly approachable” reinvention of reverb, distortion, and nonstandard guitar tunings. “[V]ague musical structures guide the ... journey into the depths of unbridled experimentation.” Edition of 300. Here’s a video from October 2014 shot live in Austria: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v2WImN2TkeY


Extended Play-R

(Suitcase - SUT03) 7-inch $7.75

Homemade Moog electronics and A/V experiments by interactive multimedia technology specialist James F. Ellis (ex-Absolute Ceiling). Four tracks that “meld the terrain between Minimal Man and Mark Stewart Group,” according to Discogs’ own PastySurprise. “There's a lot of sonic variety, including cool keyboard work and two locked grooves. If you miss the raw DIY electronic sound that characterized the 80s, this … will truly help bridge that gap.” With badge. Edition of 500.


Machinist In The Underworld

(Suitcase) LP $24.00 (Out-of-stock)

Eleven tracks of synth-driven goth-wave by Laura Jean Housley — spiritually akin to Skinny Puppy or Death in June, but aligned with modern lo-fi, dirge-laden pop such as Zola Jesus and LA Vampires. Blue vinyl. Edition of 300. Check out the video for “Horns Of A Ram” here: http://youtu.be/loUkxYvePxE
