    Prizehog Low Freq Extend

    After getting to know our Portland via San Francisco brothers and sister over the years, experiencing mind-blastedness from multiple live encounters, and falling hard for their LP on the legendary GRAVITY RECORDS as well as their self-released work, we were..elated…when, while hanging out at TOSHI KASAI’s recording studio out in California, we decided to put together a very special Prizehog release on SGG.

    The title implies what you’re getting into with this beast. Head over to our store for more specs and to grab a copy before they’re gone.

    Speaking of Prizehog, they’re playing the excellent TOTAL FEST in Missoula this weekend along with WOOLEN MEN , Wolf Eyes, and a slew of others.

Texan upstarts Coma in Algiers and local co-ed ripper unit Couch Slut round out the bill. Oh, and, again, VAZ. So, we’ll be seeing you.

  • Vaz/DEAD split 7″ now available

    April 17th, 2014


    From Wantage/We Empty Rooms:

    At some point in 2012 the Australian band Dead hosted New York group Vaz for a tour of their continent. The tour was nice where the swimming and tunes were concerned. Commercially it failed. Vaz then toured Malaysia and Indonesia, had amazing curry and returned to NYC, aka HELL. This 7″ is the commemorative oversized-foam-hand-with-index-finger-pointed-skyward … if you follow, of those tours. It offers up two of our favorite bands of the past 5 or so years, in all their desperate, excellent glory.

    Dead, “like a vegan, southern hemisphere Motörhead”(but more crawling and pleasantly bitter, to these ears), and Vaz, who offer up Cold War paranoiac space rock. Desperate, fast, deftly-played and riffy without pandering to anything that could be called “stoner.”

    First edition. 313 total pressed.
    Letter pressed covers.
    The first 100 are limited to mailorder only and are printed on craft colored covers, and include an ultra-limited Dead and We Empty Rooms beer coaster.

    Available in our store.

  • Bludded Head “Bludded Death” limited edition cassettes available now

    April 16th, 2014

    bludded death frontFormed out of an appreciation for Henry Cow’s avant leanings, La Monte Young-inspired minimalism, and the power of sheer, punishing volume, Bludded Head approach metal with a focus on desperation rather than depravity. Exploring vulnerability while maintaining a hard-heartedness that is palpable, the sound is a wounded animal’s howl, a nerves-shot predator whose teeth find its prey in the dark.

    Founding member Nevada Hill has surrounded himself with formidable players throughout the various incarnations of the band, a cast that includes men and women involved with Tiger Hatchery, Terminator 2, John Zorn, Drug Mountain, Jandek, R. Stevie Moore, and Daniel Johnston to name but a few.

    Coming across like Codeine writing songs for Corrupted, Bludded Head are (very literally, trust us) a cancer-conquering force that collapses and devours all light at the end of the tunnel.

    Professionally dubbed and packaged in a 5 panel insert featuring a comic by 7 yr old Gillian Hill, with gold on gold tapes, a strictly limited edition of the second installment of the Bludded Head saga.

    “Doom bands come and go, many sounding similar to one another, with the greatest emphasis being placed on how far apart those gut-punch downbeats can be spaced; not so for Bludded Head, who seem in it to write, arrange and execute great songs, several worlds apart from the sameyness that characterizes many of their peers in the genre.”
    - Wm. Berger, WFMU

    Available now in our store.
