Various
A Harbinger Sound Sampler

The fearsome Harbinger Sound label put together a compilation that captures the diversity and intensity of their current roster. A Harbinger Sound Sampler contains unheard tracks from Sleaford Mods, Consumer Electronics and Pain Jerk, as well as an astonishing array of angry, noisy and political tunes only available on double vinyl LP.

Girls In Synthesis
Pre/Post: A Collection 2016-2018

Here is where Girls In Synthesis compile their earlier three EPs so you don't have to pay large prices on discogs.  For the uninitiated, the band play a large DIY punk racket inspired by such luminaries as Wire, Crass and the Fall without particularly sounding like any of them. Sonically adventurous, theirs is a primal, primitive noise perfect for troubled times.

Girls In Synthesis
Now Here’s An Echo From Your Future

Preparing for their first full-length album with a series of highly collectable 7” singles since their formation four years ago, Now Here’s An Echo From Your Future is the moment of truth for Girls In Synthesis. Released on experimental punk label Harbinger Sound, the band exude cynicism and anger (underscored with fundamental optimism) at every moment. 

R.J.F.
Greater Success in Apprehensions & Convictions

Attaining mythical status among collectors in the nearly four decades since its extremely low-key release in 1983, Greater Success In Apprehensions & Convictions from Gothenburg outfit R.J.F. now gets a re-issue on vinyl with extensive sleevenotes. It’s an influential landmark in the development of Scandinavian minimalist electronica.

Mentira
Mentira

It's always hard to guess what Harbinger Sound might release next but the ex home of Sleaford Mods like a surprise. This latest release is from a Barcelona-based duo who make a kind of minimalist post-punk using just keyboard bass and a drum. Keeping things simple they emerge with an eerie sound that will appeal to fans of early '80s minimal synth stuff. 

Sleaford Mods
Live at SO36

Live recording of Sleaford Mods’ third gig at SO36 in Berlin, from June 2015. Live, angry and righteous, the whole gig was caught on camera and documented. The album contains pretty much all of their biggest tracks, including Jobseeker, Tied Up In Nottz, Joly Fucker, and Tweet, Tweet, Tweet. If studio recordings aren’t gritty and sweaty enough for you...

Massicot
Kratt

After a seemingly interminable wait since their 2015 full-length debut, Swiss noise-rock outfit Massicot unleash their second album. Dealing in alternating passages of aggressive volume and hypnotic calmness, Kratt forges together Middle Eastern-inspired polyrhythms and European folk with post-punk. 

Sleaford Mods
Austerity Dogs

Austerity Dogs is the 6th album by Nottingham duo Sleaford Mods, but it’s the one that got them noticed. Since its release in 2013, the band have gone from strength to strength, being a necessary mouthpiece and cathartic outlet for many in the these austere times. They mix a punk snarl with pepped-up hip-hop beats and socially aware lyrics to make an original, energetic, angry and often witty statement that has become essential.

The Urinals
Pin The Needles - Live at George's, Santa Barbara, November 1979

The Urinals were a rackety minimalist punk rock band out of South California who later changed their name to the more user-friendly 100 Flowers.  Pin The Needles is their first ever live album, capturing the band at their raw and ragged best at an early show which gave the audience a peek at the songs that would emerge on their debut LP of '83 (released under the 100 Flowers moniker). Comes in gatefold sleeve with info, photos etc.  

Sleaford Mods
Divide And Exit

Sold out - sorry!

Treriksroset
Kristen Musik Fran Ragsved

Horrible noise from Treriksroset aka Tommy Carlsson. Carlsson has been active in Stockholm's underground for many years, whisking together or sort of crunches and squeals for maximum devastation. Kristen Musik Fran Ragsved easily ranks among his most intense releases. Recorded in mono. On Harbinger Sound. 

Consumer Electronics
Airless Space

A quick warning, despite the artwork, this is not a Guided by Voices album. Instead it's the latest from horrible (in a good way) music purveyors Consumer Electronics. After tackling the endlessly inspirational topic of Brexit on their last album, on Airless Space they have turned that attention to one D. Trump. Moving from London to San Francisco has resulted in a mellower sound than the best, but given the subject matter, one that is no less horrible. 

Dead Normal
There Is Nothing Left But The Enjoyment Of Senseless Destruction

Sure to appeal to fans of Atari Teenage Riot, The Fall and Crystal Castles, Spanish-based trio Dead Normal fuse harsh electronics with punk energy and dynamics. There is Nothing Left But the Enjoyment of Senseless Destruction - catchy title - gives listeners a clue as to what lies within their debut! 

Circuit Breaker
Hands Return To Shake

If you can imagine the vocal stylings of ‘80s goth-punks such as Bauhaus and Killing Joke and the angular new wave of Wire paired with the pristine synth work and dissonant electronic sounds of acts such as Autechre and Pan Sonic then you’re close to imagining the sound of sibling duo Circuit Breaker. Their debut album Hands Return To Shake will please fans of industrial rock, new wave and IDM alike.

Muscle Barbie
Muscle Barbie

This self-titled full length from Muscle Barbie is the band's second release and promises more of the same from their first release on tape All Your Stuff. This release has been described as being super super limited, so if you want one you need to act fast! Again, only available on vinyl LP, and released on Harbinger Sound. 

John Paul
No Filter

Harbinger Sound gets back into the grimy seam from which Sleaford Mods came and comes out with John Paul (no relation to the former Pope), whose No Filter is a cynical journey through small-town shit-time England, with witty slam-poetry wordplay bluntly delivered over simple electronic backing. Yes m8. On Harbinger Sound.

Massicot
Suri Gruti

The sounds on Massicot’s new record Suri Gruti were apparently recorded as soundtracks to Man Ray films: from the sounds of the audience at the start and the end, Suri Gruti also appears to be a live document. But this stuff is firmly strong and potent enough to stand as its own record: tightly churning repeato-rock of the highest order. 10” on Harbinger Sound.

Sudden Infant
Buddhist Nihilism

How could I not reference the press release here? "SUDDEN INFANT is a Swiss Industrial-Dada-Noise-Rock band based in Berlin". How bad-ass does that make this band sound? Buddhist Nihilism is the latest release from SUDDEN INFANT and contains 12 explosive tracks that, like the records before this (see Radiorgasm and Wolfi's Nightmare in particular) combine over 25 years worth of industrial music experience. Available on vinyl LP and CD, and released on Harbinger Sound. 

Noseholes
Danger Dance

On Harbinger Sound (Sleaford Mods etc), Noseholes (yup we all have two of them) make a kind of rackety no-wave and post-punk that it sure to blow any cobwebs away. Comparisons have been made to bands like Bush Tetras and Shopping and so this distinctly lop sided tangle of guitars promises much. 

Nachthexen
Disco Creep

Sheffield’s Nachthexen continue their fine run that dates back to 2015’s The Other with another EP of righteous, fervid post-punk. The latest weapon in their arsenal is a new dancefloor sensibility, best exemplified on the title track. Over a ragged disco beat, their always-on-point vocalist rages against men in clubs who proceed to ruin her night out by showing no regard for her personal space. Out on Harbinger Sound.

Heavy Metal
The Nietzschean Supermen Of Dustbin Rock

Heavy Metal are a weirdo punk band from Berlin. Quite hard to put a finger on their sound but I’m thinking Truman’s Water meets Jilted John. And odd mix, I know. There’s a real plethora of sounds on The Nietzschean Supermen Of Dustbin Rock. Lyrically, they’ve been likened to a hyper Dan Treacy of Television Personalities. All I can tell you is that this is certainly a listening experience that’s not easy to forget. Limited Gold vinyl LP on Harbinger Sound.

Structure
Structure

Brighton’s Structure enter the fray with six slices of throwback post-punk. Clearly massive fans of Wire, Gang Of Four et al, the group rip through the set with a speed and intensity that would make their angular ancestors proud. The jagged wiggle of tracks like ‘Dull’ and ‘Decline’ are austerity thrills ala Shopping and fellow Harbinger Sound punx Nachthexen. Elsewhere ‘Spit’ and ‘Waste’ are the sort of sub-two-minute system blowers that will never go out of fashion.

Nachthexen
EP

Born from the same fertile Sheffield scene as Sievehead and Community, Nachthexen bring together their self-titled 7” and 2015 cassette The Other on one neat 10” vinyl. The eight tracks here are all played with blistering energy and bring to mind comparisons with the likes of Good Throb and Le Tigre.

John Wall & Mark Durgan
Contrapt

Lovers of sound detritus John Wall and Mark Durgan finally return to their collaborative endeavours with Contrapt, a seven-track missive made through improvisations made over three years. The timespan reflects in the record a structure and narrative in spite of the unprepared approach.

Mark Wynn
More Singles...

Typically perfect for fans of The Fall, Patrik Fitzgerald and many other late 20th Century post-punk outfits, More Singles... is another slice of Mark Wynn's vast back-catalogue. Featuring hits such as 'And Dave Went Mental' and 'Bill Burroughs Was My Baby', this is an essential for any fan.

The Lowest Form
Personal Space

The Lowest Form is the hardcore outfit of Helm dude and Alter bossman Luke Younger, although they are pleasingly free of any kind of sound-arty reconsiderations of hardcore. This is just fucking hardcore, noisy and aggressive and thrashy and great. Second album Personal Space is released by Harbinger Sound.

Consumer Electronics
Dollhouse Songs

Tech punk aggressors Consumer Electronics return with another noisey affair with the delicately titled Dollhouse Songs. Produced by the mighty Russell Haswell, this dirge of austerity angst jumps right down your earhole and stays there. Out on vinyl LP with lyric sleeve from Harbinger Sound. Limited to 1000 copies.

Circuit Breaker
My Descent Into Capital

Circuit Breaker make music that brings industrial sonics into the present day. My Descent Into Capital is their fullest statement to date, taking the length of a whole album to hammer into the bleak truths of life under the neoliberal rule of late capitalism… with synths and drum machines! Out on Harbinger Sound.

Phil Julian
Trace

Someone let abstract-electronics-expert Phil Julian into the EMS (Elektronmusikstudion) studio in Stockholm! I can only dream of the delicious range of sound machines one might find in a proper electroacoustic music studio like that… This LP on Harbinger Sound is the result of two weeks in residence at the EMS, and it sounds quite frankly gorgeous.
