out now: winter dust – unisono LP
“There are many layers within the music, but I wouldn’t call it dense. It feels well balanced. Twinkling piano sits beside the distorted guitar. Overdriven intense passages are spaced out with reverberating breathing moments.”
this is winter dust’s first record sung in their native tongue, Italian. most songs are a bit shorter than on the band’s former release “sense by erosion”, but other than that the music stays within the same realm the band has successfully developed over the last years, as a mixture of post-rock and emo, with some mathy and hardcore influences and a raw, passionate urge that is unique.
“…the vocal delivery is so visceral. I picture Vezzaro delivering his searing call to arms as he cries out to the universe, shouting out to any who will listen. This is often what comes to mind as I listen to Winter Dust’s music. The impassioned vocals of someone crying out to the void, with brilliant music that carries just as much power and emotion to match.”

2nd press on silver/red vinyl, gatefold sleeve
ghost bag – palindrome LP
Flirting with dreams of redemption, fatalistic sentiments echo throughout. Jongen is able to catch a glimpse of the outside world, while the door remains locked. A cynic might say this record is a testament of personal alienation made under trade-wind tropical rainforest weather conditions. In his own words…

In a blend of chaotic emotional intensity and precise beauty, Jamie Behar, Kevin Roche and Steve Roche find a realm of untouched hardcore catharsis. “The Heat Death of the Universe” Off Minor’s first LP is a journey of heart felt monologues built around the difficulties of the respective band member’s lives.
