Artist: A.H. KRAKEN
Title: S/T
Format: 7"
Label: Sweet Rot
Country: Canada
Price: $6.00
"The second release from French miscreants A.H. KRAKEN following their absolutely devastating debut LP on In the Red. Continuing with the trend from the LP, this two-song single is loud, brutal, and punishing, featuring disturbing French lyrics about swamps and porn stars. One of the premier noise making bands of today, and just in time for their first US tour. The band will also be playing the Sonic Protest festival in Paris in December. 500 copies." -Sweet Rot
SOLD OUT

Artist: ANALS, THE
Title: Commando of Love
Format: 7"
Label: Sweet Rot
Country: Canada
Price: $6.00
"Hailing from Metz, France, home to a ridiculous number of genre-bending bands, most of which they play in (like A.H KRAKEN, ELECTRIC GUITARS, THE DREAMS, PLASTOBETTON, SCORPION VIOLENTE, FUNK POLICE, and more), this is their first (and only?) 7-inch and its a two song ass reamer. Taking the sheer repetitive brutality of a band like the Brainbombs and meshing it with the trance-like drone of a band like Suicide, these two songs have the guitars, drums, and synths all set to attack, and are not for the faint of heart. Sadly, in late 2007 Benoit passed away so now The Anals are done." - Sweet Rot

Artist: BLANK DOGS
Title: The Doorbell Fire
Format: 7"
Label: Sweet Rot
Country: Canada
Price: $5.00
"One of the most exciting things when listening to Blank Dogs records has been trying to dissect the alchemy of his recording process. How did he make that guitar/synth sound like that? And was it on purpose or something he just stumbled on to? The mysteries behind these questions (and of course the increasingly annoying debate of the identity of the suspects involved...I mean, it really doesnt matter folks. Cant you just enjoy something?) make for intense listening experiences...a Blank Dogs record is something I really just cant have playing in the background while I do other things. They demand attention, or perhaps just have a certain magic that sucks you into their world. They manage to be quite personal sounding and keep you at an arms distance as well. "Outside Alarmer" has already been picked as one of Mr.BDs choicest cuts by many and I cant argue with facts. Its synth flares lend a nearly pretty quality to a tune that would at first seem almost creepy. "It Was" treks thorugh the desert on a winding minimal-synth path. "Doorbell Fire" reminds me of The Cure for no apparent reason. Somewhat fragile and surprisingly quite stirring and evocative music from a "band" that I hope just isnt toying with my emotions. Theres a distinct odor of Eighties nostalgia surrounding this record in my mind as well, so much so that I envisioned them as the soundtrack for some outre John Hughes teen-flick on a particularly late and chemically enhanced evening. My personal fave of the Blank Dogs records so far." - Terminal Boredom (Rich Kroneiss).
SOLD OUT

Artist: CIRCLE PIT
Title: Sewercide
Format: 7"
Label: Sweet Rot
Country: Canada
Price: $7.00
"Austrailias newest fave scuzzters return with a brand new single. You get the cut "Sewercide," backed with "Roll With The Punches." The band just completed a US tour in support of their Bruise Constellation album on Siltbreeze. A split release between Canadas Sweet Rot and Australias R.I.P. Society." - Sweet Rot.
SOLD OUT

Artist: CONSIGNMENT
Title: S/T
Format: 7"
Label: Sweet Rot
Country: USA
Price: $7.00
"CONSIGNMENT is the brainchild of Seattles MATT NYCE (ex-METH TEETH) and this four-song debut EP showcases some of the most pleasant songs weve heard in a while. Recorded last year in their laundry room when the band was just Matt and his then girlfriend/now wife DENA on drums this is the most mellow sounding Sweet Rot release yet, but one were very proud of. The focus here is on the songwriting and these songs are perfect front-porch-lounging-while-drinking-beer music, or as Seattles The Stranger put it-"Like a sedative elixir for your soul, Consignment make lethargic, lo-fi garage-pop songs less upbeat than they are beat-up". The band has since morphed into a 4-piece live band. For fans of The Shackles, Sonny and the Sunsets, Dutchess and the Duke, etc." -Sweet Rot

Artist: FEELING OF LOVE
Title: School Yeah
Format: 7"
Label: Sweet Rot
Country: USA
Price: $7.00
"The Metz Trifecta is complete. First it was The Anals, then A.H. Kraken, and now Sweet Rot is pleased to present a third record from Metz, France, a three-song single from THE FEELING OF LOVE. Just like their previous releases this one features a schizophrenic mix that somehow makes perfect sense. You get one studio-recorded hit and one drum machine fueled jam on the A-side, and an absolutely beautiful, yet fucked, reinterpretation of a Gainsbourg classic on the flip. Pretty cool cover art too. Black vinyl." - Sweet Rot. 
SOLD OUT

Artist: LOVE TAN
Title: s/t
Format: 7"
Label: Sweet Rot
Country: Canada
Price: $6.00
"LOVE TAN used to be called PYRAMIDS (which is what the labels on the record say), but have recently decided to change their name. Hailing from Seattle, the six songs on this EP display the wide range of sounds the band is capable of, which is all the more impressive considering that they are only a two piece made up of MATTHEW FORD (FACTUMS, ex-INTELLIGENCE) on drums and CRAIG CHAMBERS (THE LIGHTS) on guitar. The vocals range from falsetto to baritone, the guitar can sound sparse or punishingly full, and the drumming can go from methodical to off-kilter, and all in the same song. This is their debut release, which will be followed shortly by a full length on Kill Shaman. For fans of Tronics, The Urinals, The Prats, etc." - Sweet Rot

Artist: MEERCAZ
Title: S/T
Format: 7"
Label: Sweet Rot
Country: USA
Price: $7.00
"After a pretty distinct sounding debut 7-inch and LP that garnered good reviews yet still managed to fly under the radar of most listeners, Sweet Rot is pleased to present a new single by Portland, Oregons MEERCAZ that takes the bands output to new levels. Formed by frontman MUSLIM DELGADO, Meercazs two songs here float hazily somewhere around Gizmos/Twinkeyz/Chrome proto-punk territory that solidly nail it in the songwriting department while still maintaining an appropriate amount of guitar damage and experimentation. A perfect single, in our minds, from one of Americas most underrated bands, and a teaser for the bands excellent 12-inch EP coming soon from Tic Tac Totally. Meercaz also features KYLE RAQUIPISO (ex-METH TEETH) and CLAY SILVA (ex-CLOROX GIRLS). Black vinyl." -Sweet Rot

Artist: PHEROMOANS
Title: Midnight Watchdog
Format: 7"
Label: Sweet Rot
Country: USA
Price: $7.00
"Sweet Rots first release from the United Kingdom comes courtesy of THE PHEROMOANS, purveyors of some of the finest DIY punk weve heard in ages. Coming hot on the heels of the bands fine split with Dan Melchior, this singles A-side is a superbly shambolic two song romp while the flip features the title track, a Pheromoans patented spoken word number, and a 9 second ode to one of Canadas finest institutions, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. For fans of Tyvek, The Fall, Country Teasers, Hygiene, etc. LP coming soon on Convulsive Records. Black vinyl." -Sweet Rot
SOLD OUT

Artist: PRIMITIVE CALCULATORS/SLUG GUTS
Title: Pumpin Ugly Muscle Split
Format: 7"
Label: Sweet Rot
Country: Canada
Price: $7.00
"Sweet Rot is thrilled to present a split 7" by legendary Australian noise merchants PRIMITIVE CALCULATORS and Brisbane, Australias swamp gang SLUG GUTS. This record features three previously unreleased versions of the Primitive Calculators quasi single/hit "Ugly Pumping Muscle." You get a devastating version recorded by Primitive Calculators in 1979 in the practice room of the bands home in Fitzroy, Melbourne. As well as this, they contribute an equally fierce and driving live version recorded in 2009 following their memorable reunion at All Tomorrows Parties in Melbourne. Not to be outdone, Slug Guts (2nd LP coming soon on Sacred Bones) darkly interpret Ugly Pumping Muscle and give it their own unique twist.  For fans of Screamers, Suicide, DFA, etc." - Sweet Rot.

Artist: TV GHOST
Title: Phantasm
Format: 7"
Label: Sweet Rot
Country: Canada
Price: $7.00
"Sweet Rot is pleased to present a two song scorcher of a single from Lafayette, Indianas TV GHOST as a follow up to their quite excellent 2011 LP, Mass Dream on In the Red Records. "Phantasm" and the flip "Panic Area" are both typical TV Ghost-sinister, pummeling, psychedelic, lurching, spastic, and ugly, in all the right ways. We here at Sweet Rot are huge fans of all the bands records, and feel that this just might be the best one yet and the one that best captures the intensity and urgency of their epic live show. For fans of Scientists, Slug Guts, Gordons, Cramps, etc." - Sweet Rot.

Artist: UV RACE
Title: Acid Trip
Format: 7"
Label: Sweet Rot
Country: Canada
Price: $7.00
"Fourth single from Melbourne, Australias UV RACE and just the like the other three, this one is fantastic. The A-side sees the band pushing forward into somewhat newer territories with "Acid Trip" their hazy/dreamy take on psychedelic pop, albeit with the typical UV Race retardo-punk bent. The flip "Speed Freak" is a more direct two minute burst of UV Race greatness. Expertly recorded by MIKEY YOUNG (Eddy Current Suppression Ring) with perhaps their best sleeve art yet. New LP, Homo, coming soon on In the Red." - Sweet Rot.
