Store Update: Fan Death Records


We’re now stocking a handful of titles from the Fan Death Records catalog. I first met Chris and Sean, who run the label, in 2009, when they were living in College Park, Maryland, shortly after they pressed their first release, Ready 2 Fight -- a single-sided 12” featuring Clockcleaner’s epic 15-minute take on Negative Approach’s “Ready to Fight” (recorded live while opening for Negative Approach ). It was a good record to start with -- one that set a precedent for their musical tastes (loud, weird) and, maybe more importantly, for their sense of humor.

Since then, they’ve continued to release a string of cool, mostly unclassifiable singles, LPs, and cassettes from folks like Jason Urick, Puerto Rican Flowers, and Ed Schrader’s Music Beat (to name a few personal faves). (Aaron Leitko)

RoomrunnerIdeal Cities

The debut full-length from Baltimore-based “bunge” pioneers, Roomrunner. Loud songs that take some inspiration from certain ’90s-era fuzz-pedal purveyors, but are also deeply linked to present-day peers like Dope Body and Metz, with whom they’ve toured. Lead by former Double Dagger drummer, Denny Bowen.


Roomrunner’s six-song self-titled debut cassette.

Screen Vinyl ImageSiberian Eclipse

Two hazy, Factory Records-indebted dream-pop tunes from this D.C.-area duo.

Store Update: Big Eyes, Marriage, Bad Brains


Big EyesAlmost Famous
The sophomore album from Seattle-based power-pop trio, Big Eyes. An office staff favorite! Preview the whole record now, via Grave Mistake’s website.
MarriageFor Brotzmann
The debut full-length LP form Austin, Texas-based quintet, Marriage, which includes former Black Eyes drummer, Mike Kanin. Heavy, dissonant percussion and dub-inflected grooves that carry the ball forward from last year’s 7” single (which is also back in stock, btw). If you were a fan of Black Eyes’ first LP, you will probably not be disappointed. Preview a song here.
Bad BrainsLive at CBGB
Bad Brains live LP that draws from three nights’ worth of performances at CBGBs in December 1982. Note that it’s an entirely different set of songs/takes than the CD and DVD versions.
