A bunch of stuff since the last time. . .
FANG ISLAND – S/T 12” (sargent house) – Picked this up from their show at House of Rules the other day.
GRANDCHILDREN – Everlasting (green owl) – “a dynamic collision of heavy drums and fuzzy vocals” created live by up to six people from Philadelphia. Playing at The Cavern on Nov. 3rd.
JEFF – Castle Storm (infinity cat) – Early “Jeff the Brotherhood” release.
OBLIVIANS/ANDRE ETHIER – Split 7” (scion/vice) – Maybe the 7th garage rock split this year from Scion A/V

RABBITS/UNDER MOUNTAINS – Split 12” (eolian) – “Circus heavy bashology vs. doom grunge frenzy”
SMALL BLACK – New Chain (jagjaguwar) – Debut full-length from heavily blogged and mysterious Brooklyn act. Playing at The Cavern on October 30th with Class Actress.
SUUNS – Zeros QC (secretly canadian)– Montreal quartet, Suuns remind me of Clinic with steady psychedelic electronic beats. Touring with Land of Talk this Fall, stopping in Dallas on Saturday October 16th at The Nightmare.
TERA MELOS – S/T (sargent house) – Eight untitled tracks comprises their debut release from 2005.
TERA MELOS – Drugs to the Dear Youth 10” (sargent house) – Reissued/remasterd EP on splatter vinyl.

TERA MELOS – Patagonian Rats dbl Lp (sargent house) – I reviewed this a while back prior to them coming through town last week. Contains 3 additional tracks, exclusive to the vinyl edition. Gatefold vinyl. Pressing is 500 Clear Purple and 500 Opaque green.
THOSE DARLINS/FUNSTIX – Nightjogger/Funstix Party 7” (oh wow dang) – Raunchy new song by Those Darlins’ side-project, Funstix.
V/A – MATADOR at 21 dbl lp (matador) – Label’s anniversary compilation features 19 songs off their current roster; including their boutique label, True Panther Sounds. Why not 21 songs is a mystery to me; (besides time constraints of vinyl). Songs by Fucked Up, Sonic Youth, Kurt Vile, Harlem, Cold Cave, Girls, Magic Kids, Interpol, Esben and the Witch and more.
WOMEN – Public Strain (jagjaguwar) – Women’s sophomore album does not disappoint. Solid follow up to S/T and touring right now! Playing Dallas on October 15th.
ZORCH – S/T cdr (self) – Using just keyboards and drums, Austin’s math rock duo, ZORCH is a sonic mind fuck of awesomeness.
