no action / amid the old wounds split 7″ out now!

two new recordings each band in a beautiful handmade black and white paper artwork with handstamped center labels and inner sleeve and torn paper edges

according to new action’s song ‘III’ is “a haunting symphony from Adelaide’s emo realm, summons the ethereal specters of The Hated, Evergreen, Hüsker Dü, and Comet Gain. With a relentless, pulsating rhythm, this emotional punk rock jam accelerates through the depths of human sentiment. Veiled in a mist of slightly distorted vocals, the organic essence of its sound resonates with the raw, untamed spirit of a truly honest offering. This ephemeral, simply crafted, yet hearty and genuine, “III” unfolds its poignant narrative in a mere two minutes, leaving listeners wanting more.” of course their second song ‘monument to taste’  is just as much of a banger.

amid the old wounds contributes two songs that mark the start of a new chapter of work titled ‘half alive’. musically they don’t stray too far from what the artist presented on his predeceeding 7″ ‘rebreather’, maybe they are even a little sadder, and more intimate.

records include a download code for all 4 songs. edges are handtorn, which makes every copy unique. available in opaque dark green and black vinyl

this was coreleased with magic hour records (aus), rufen publishings (jap), softseed music (usa/can), sncl (uk), polar summer (rus) and salto mortale music (slv), so if you’re in their area please consider ordering from them

amid the old wounds floppy disk and mira 7″

during preparation of some wishes on a plane re/releases I unearthed this 3 track demo song presumably recorded sometime november/december 2004. I’ve given this to a compilation before but wanted it to have a physical release too, so I made some floppy disks in spraypainted guitar string envelopes which I will randomly throw in with orders or distribute to other places while supplies last. I ran out of envelopes now but will make more copies in the future. physical copies are meant to be name-your-price benefitting my friend franz @ koenichsound, who has been a constant supporter of amid the old wounds since day one, please consider supporting him by buying a download of the song or our collaborative project ‘their something borrowed, glory’ from his bandcamp

furthermore I received some copies of the beautiful
mira 7″
it’s a one-sided 7″ with music by members of manku kapak, kubiak, they sleep we live and ilill, includes a zine with lyrics and a CD-R with the same songs. hefty elaborate packaging with wood/lino-cut covers

new records by least, showbread, floorbird, turquoise, eugenius, wet tropics

I received some records from the US from friend club records, most of these are kinda hard to come by over here in europe and I only got small quantities

On a quite important sidenote German Post is reconstructing their policies, so smaller orders including LPs can no longer be sent through media mail. There are some petitions trying to fight this, but it seems from july postage prices for orders of single or few LPs will increase drastically. This is out of my hands, so if you want to order just an LP or two please do so today or tomorrow. cheers

least – folding my hands, accepting defeat LP
“Folding My Hands, Accepting Defeat is about finally giving into my gender dysphoria. It’s about my darkest moments as a trans person stuck in the closet, but also the revelation of figuring out that it’s possible to move forward and live a fulfilling life.” – Taylin Willis

showbread – cancer LP
Cancer, Showbread’s latest studio outing, follows the story of a downtrodden and rebellious rock icon of a protagonist as he attempts to use a punk rock band to lead a revolt against inter-dimensional fascists called “The Principalities” in a not-so-distant American future.

floorbird – fall apart anywhere LP
Floorbird channel’s the best of Dashboard Confessional, The Maine and Cartel into a glowing polished embrace that is sure to warm your heart

turquoise – fermented fruit LP
Fermented Fruit is an eight song journey laced with debauchery that bounces along with a joy and passion rarely heard.

eugenius – midlife 2xLP
dark, aggressive hip hop, a chaotic, angular and melancholic soundtrack to the enlightening, and sometimes isolating, act of reaching the midpoint of life.

wet tropics – everybody get in LP
Wet Tropics  has the Gen-X slacker charm firmly in place, but it’s also hotwired with key elements of garage rock, power pop, and post-punk
