People's Temple
Musical Garden

This album blew our collective socks off back in 2014. People's Temple had already released two LPs on Hozac but Musical Garden was perhaps their finest statement. It took the 60s garage of the Seeds, the Rolling Stones and the Standells and twisted it into exciting new shapes.  The band were impossibly young but had all the right psych-rock moves on an album no fan of Ty Segall or the Brian Jonestown Massacre should be without.

The Terminals
Uncoffined

The Terminals are arguably one of the finest examples of the New Zealand indie underground: they did contain members of a whole host of other Flying Nun bands after all. Uncoffined is their debut album, from 1988, and it is at once dark-edged and beautifully tuneful. It's had a remaster, and is now reissued by the HoZac Archival label.

Mike Rep and The Quotas
Hellbender

Sweaty, gritty, gold. Sounding like a nutter running around a single mic in a room and someone hitting cardboard boxes, and to be fair it probably was. Filled to the brim with energy, reminds me of the tunes written by Beck for fictional band Sex Bob-Omb but with manic laughter and screams. Hellbender has loads of previously unreleased madness recorded between ‘75 and ‘78.

Prix
Historix

Prix are a lesser-known band that came about when members of later-period Big Star shot off on their own. Historix is a set of ferocious mid-70’s rock music, packed with riffs and flaring vocals. Barely any of this material has been widely heard: 2 singles released at the time and a Japanese CD release 15 years ago is all the attention it has received. So praise due to the efforts of HoZac Archival.

Heavy Times
Black Sunglasses

Heavy Times are a garage-rock band who are always worth your attention: for this new single on the HoZac label they add raw synth to the mix, where it sits comfortably with the frantic rhythm and Nick Cave-esque vocals on the title cut. The Black Sunglasses single is limited to 500 7” vinyl copies only.

Made In Japan
Instant Hit / You've Never Had It So Good

Made In Japan were unearthed by the HoZac label after hearing their work in New Year’s Evil, a 1980 B-movie. The band never made it far, but it turns out their power-pop / rock is high-quality. Ironically for a single named Instant Hit, neither of these 2 tracks have ever even been released before, let alone become a hit. But that makes this HoZac Archival 7” a unique proposition.

Kitchen's Floor
Battle Of Brisbane

Grinding garage rock 'n' roll from Brisbane malcontents Kitchen's Floor. The guitars seethe, the drums pound, the bass thumps and the vocals express existential terror through a filter of cynicism. For fans of Australian legends like The Saints, Radio Birdman and The Celibate Rifles as well as the more contemporary likes of Blank Realm (whose Luke Walsh recorded the album).

Ausmuteants
Mates Rates / Echo Beach

Synth punk on 7” from Ausmuteants. The two tracks, Mates Rates and Echo Beach, are exclusive to this release, and hold together an almost new-wave melodic sensibility with the forward pummel of punk. Oh, and the second track is a cover of Martha & The Muffins. Gnarly times, on the HoZac label.

Brown Spiders
It's Something To Do

Brown Spiders get straight on with it with this single: It’s Something To Do thrusts in with an underslung bassline, soon backed up with a spiky riff. These Spiders hail from South Africa and make a fine, spooky sound for you to unsettle in with. 300 copies on HoZac, with a creepy third-eye image on the sleeve.

Connections
5 Imaginary Boys

You'll find Connections at the place where traditional indie and punk cross paths, where things aren't quite chill but they are fun, not quite slacker but definitely stoner. '5 Imaginary Boys' is their newest EP and offers raw pop tunes that harken back to the days when Guided By Voices could get at your heart and be done with it in under a minute. 

Electric Eels
Accident / Wreck and Roll

Old show-you-how-its-done punks Electric Eels continue to get celebrated by HoZac with this 7", another scatterbrained piece of guitar abstraction nonsense with duel vocalists who can scarcely be heard behind the racket. It's the way it was ment to be, and on "Wreck and Roll" they even try their hand at this thing you call pop music.

NUN
NUN

Whipcrack drum machines and darkly low-slung synths drive NUN’s self-titled debut forwards. This is a pretty great sound they have, tightly focused and propulsive. The band are from Melbourne, but no Australian sun has seeped into these recordings. LP packaged along with a poster, released on HoZac.

The Chrome Cranks
The Chrome Cranks

The early '90s are an unappreciated musical era, with everybody pretending nothing happened except for Blur and Nirvana. Thankfully, HoZac are preaching the gospel by reissuing The Chrome Cranks’  self-titled debut album. It’s a piece of slow-paced and nihilistic punk, relentlessly packed with youthful energy and still appealing today. The first pressing is limited to 500 copies!

Southern Comfort
Suzanne

Australia’s Southern Comfort are made up of guitarist Angie Bermuda and vocalist Harriet Hudson Their new single will appeal to fans of The Dum Dum Girls, Circle Pit and Wax Idols among others. Suzanne is available through HoZac Records on a limited edition black vinyl 7” single (400 copies).

Cozy
Button by Button

Cozy Powell. Peeder Powell watch out. This is the debut release from Cozy who play a banging style of 70's glam power pop that gives Gary Glitter a run for his money. Fans of The Sweet and Bay City Rollers take note; there's a new gang in town and they are armed with fuzzy guitars, stack harmonies and stack heels galore. If you are allergic to handclaps you better look elsewhere, baby.  For fans of Slade, The Raspberries, Games and Mud. 

Games
Little Elise

Games got a lot of admiration for their debut album of power pop and here they come with a raucous blast of 70's pop fun. One part Big Star, one part Dwight Twilley Band and one part Bay City Rollers this is an absolute heap of be-mulleted fun. They have all those 70's glam moves down pat that you'd swear that this was taken from the lower reaches of the Top 75 back in 1976. If you like Raspberries, Shoes, Scruffs, Slade etc etc you'll love it. Great stuff.
