Artist: FRESH & ONLYS
Title: Play It Strange
Format: LP
Label: In the Red
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"In The Red is proud to announce the release of the new full-length from San Franciscos FRESH AND ONLYS, Play It Strange. After two albums (on Castle Face and Woodsist, respectively) and too many singles and EPs to count, The Fresh and Onlys deliver their most solid outing yet. Recorded by studio whiz TIM GREEN during an eight-day session, Play It Strange marks the bands first recording in an actual recording studio. On two-inch analog tape! The results are nothing short of incredible. For those unfamiliar with The Fresh and Onlys, their sound draws from jangly psychedelia, Morricone-style Western twang, dark vibes a la Bad Seeds / Gun Club, melodic 60s sunshine pop and a hint of garage rock swagger. While this disparate list may look strange on paper, it makes perfect sense when you hear it. Play It Strange is the sound of a band that has ingested a wide range of rock n roll influences from nearly every genre and sub-genre to come up with something fresh and enjoyable. LP includes digital download." - In the Red.

Artist: TV GHOST
Title: Mass Dream
Format: LP
Label: In the Red
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"Taking their name from the phenomenon of analog television frequency disturbances, Lafayette, Indianas TV GHOST conjures an especially sludgy and punishing brand of art-punk. They began making a name for themselves in 2007, when their first 7-inch, Atomic Rain, was released by Die Stasi Records, also home to the noisy likes of Pink Reason and Zola Jesus. TV Ghosts sinister sound-which echoes the Scientists, Suicide and The Cramps 70s output-and frantic live show won them an underground following; a 12-inch EP on Die Stasi, a single on Columbus Discount Records and their debut album, Cold Fish, followed in 2009 with several rounds of touring the US in support. The bands trek across Europe in 2010 left a trail of busted gear, annoyed booking agents and new fans behind them. TV Ghosts sophomore full-length was recorded by GREG ASHLEY (Gris Gris), and Mass Dream is by far their clearest and most coherent release to date. While sacrificing none of the bands scuzz-punk dementia, this album is far less dense and impenetrable than its predecessor; Ghost frontman TIM GICKs lyrics are clearer and his complex song structure a bit easier to get a handle on. That said, this is still blood-boiling, spastic and down right evil music by anyones standards." -In the Red.

Artist: TYVEK
Title: Nothing Fits
Format: LP
Label: In the Red
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"As Detroit continues its seemingly irreversible slide into the tar pits of economic despair, new traditionalists TYVEK unashamedly take the reins and harness the ambition to keep their slurred, manically refreshing noise pop bouncing around the skulls of everyone still breathing in the real, uncategorizable fumes of the original new wave... Tyveks In The Red debut, Nothing Fits, is a scalding collection of amped-up and thrust-out songs that cranks up the energy level far beyond their previous releases and decimates the detractors into the abyss. Its Tyvek at their fiery, screaming best, and if this doesnt curl your eyebrows and your toes simultaneously with excitement, then you might need to settle for something musically akin to hospital food or take another laxative, because this blast of new recordings might just flush out your system to the point of personal emergency."-Todd Killings, Victimoftime.com* Vinyl includes digital download coupon.

Artist: UV RACE
Title: Homo
Format: LP
Label: In the Red
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"2007 saw the first recording from Melbourne, Australias The UV RACE-a self-released tape featuring four songs of primitive thud, minimal assemblage and high-energy expression. Over the next three years the band has continued to show dedication to these themes with a string of cassettes and singles and their 2009 self-titled debut full-length, and their sophomore album Homo delivers on the promise of these early releases. Working again with EDDY CURRENT SUPPRESSION RING guitarist MIKEY YOUNG at the recording and mixing stages, The UV Race developed the songs over several sessions. Their willingness to explore is clear, from the psychotic bedroom confessional of "Girl in My Head" with its confident teen-heat swagger, to the seven-minute closer "Homo," where nods to the Ramones enclose a psychedelic freak-out reminiscent of the closing minutes of The Stooges Funhouse. In between, the band explores influences ranging from their Australian proto-punk and garage fascinations to American country, Krautrock and UK post-punk, citing the Velvet Underground and the Saints as influences. Includes members of TOTAL CONTROL and STRAIGHTJACKET NATION. Includes digital download coupon." -In The Red
