Adagio 830 Vinyl, CD & tapes from this label at Norman Records
Available in Europe only, this six-track EP, entitled No Generation, is cut from extra tracks from Kindling’s previous full length album. A genuinely crafted collection of dream-pop and indie-rock that uses rather technical drumming and the most laid back vocals to give us an overall pleasurable listening experience. Available on Vinyl LP.
Votive Offering is the full-length debut of DIY punk four-piece Artefact. Shouty punk and hardcore are a key reference point, but this is kept under control by a love of the droning guitars and luscious vocals of 1980s goth and pop music. This distinctive combination is out on vinyl LP from the Adagio label.
Four track EP on vinyl 12” from noisy San Fransisco post-punks Rank / Xerox. M.Y.T.H. is the band’s first release in five years and a reminder that they have been missed. Shambolic guitars butt heads with distorted synths and weird shouted hooks that you’ll never get out of your head. Pressed by the Adagio label.
The members of Future Punx have all played in punk bands of every stripe, and are now squeezing that punk experience into a rather retro conception of the future. Synth-pop basically. This Is Post Wave is released as an LP packaged in a sleeve powerfully reminiscent of a 1980’s CD release of some academic computer music found only in libraries. On Adagio 830.
Rat Columns is the solo work of David West, and Do You Remember Real Pain has five nice new tracks of his indie guitar pop. Sad songs with distant vocals and a shoegaze-tinged production style. A pleasingly sweet little release, available in either black or pink vinyl. 500 copies on the Adagio 830 label.
