Daily Ritual

Mastering Daily Ritual – Depressed State on 4490 Records & Contergan Punk.

“Hafiz, the man of the golden touch. While Pazahora will probably always be my favorite Singaporean band, everything Hafiz touches is gold, and this is no exception. Daily Ritual is the newest Hafiz band and seems to be taking southeast Asia by storm, seeing as this debut EP sold out instantly just in their region of the world, and relatively few copies made it out west.

Daily Ritual play a standard style of catchy, melodic punk rock, in line with such bands as The Observers, Red Dons, Autistic Youth, the Estranged, etc. The melodies are memorable, the songs are catchy, the record is fucking good all around.

If you are someone that actually cares about punk on a worldwide scale, this is a good record to scope to hear something that’s currently exciting and relevant in southeast Asia. This is one of the better (and more popular) releases to come out of southeast Asia, pick it up and discover what the punks are dancing to on the other side of the world.”

4.-TV-Smith-Solo

Red Dons have collaborated on a song with punk legend TV Smith, mixed and mastered here.

The former ADVERTS front man wrote lyrics and sings over music we recorded in a Swedish bomb shelter in 2011. The song is titled A Vote for the Unknown. It will be available on vinyl this Fall thanks to Deranged Records and Taken By Surprised Records. Here is a link to the song.

Vicious Pleasures

Mastering Vicious Pleasures S/T 7″ EP on 1859 and Different Kitchen Records.

“4 brand-new frantic tracks from this high-energy Portland punk outfit recorded by Stan Wright @ Buzz or Howl (Arctic Flowers)!

Steeped in the gloom of the Pacific Northwest, Vicious Pleasures play a dark & catchy and blend of Crass and Wipers influenced punk rock. Sara’s tuneful singing interplays nicely with Lisa’s hooky guitar riffs, backed by the solid performance of the rhythm section.”

Secta Suicida

Mastering Secta Suicida on Discos MMM.

“Bogota, Colombia is an unlikely place to find a punk band with a record, let alone a punk record–there are no record pressing plants and very few record stores throughout the whole country. SECTA SUICIDA is a group as much inspired by the old sounds of classic Spanish punk, such as Commando 9mm, La Uvi and Larsen, as by the new sounds of punk today, such as Peligro Social,and inspired by making things happen on their own, by their own. I met them on tour last year in Colombia and picked up their 2013 demo tape that was assembled at their own screen-printing shop, Rat Trap Records. At the time, the thought of having their music pressed to vinyl was a distant one, but here it is: co-released with Bogota’s Rat Trap Records, SECTA SUICIDA 4-song 7” captures the wild energy of their live shows and top-notch song writing, explosive riffs and driving force, self-recorded and mixed by themselves. The color covers, designed by Rat Trap’s Carlos Velasquez and screen-printed in Bogota put the heart and energy of their collective into this first vinyl release, a record that deserves to be heard worldwide, but is only a small sample of what Colombia punks have to offer. Complete with lyrics. First press of 300 with 135 available outside of Colombia.”

snob

Mixing Snob.

“A six track record, formidable debut, clocking in at 12 minutes from a newish London band featuring members of Good Throb, Skylark, Family Outing and lots of others. Biggest comparison here is probably Rudimentary Peni, all creepy bass lines and subject matter imbued with the rage of anyone living under the regime of Boris Johnson and terminal street harassment. A literal hail of rage, snarly guitar, 1-2 1-2 Actually fuck-you drums, with astoundingly angry female vocals. Ones to watch.”

 

Lumpy and the dumpers

Mastering the Lumpy and the Dumpers Collection for Erste Theke Tonträger.

“From time to time, LUMPY AND THE DUMPERS prove themselves to be the terminus of the Slime Punk Express. Blown out and covered in slime, Lumpy gnashes his way through these 12 tracks about ghouls, gnats, piss, sex pits and bad breath. In the realm of screaming, searing “throbbing idiot punk” (as LUMPY calls it), this is gold. It’s fast, it’s vicious, and it does not give a fuck. Total raw, warped punk just like I love it! LUMPY AND THE DUMPERS sound exactly like what you’d imagine Ren & Stimpy’s latin-jazz freakout band!

This band is about the filth inside, which is not to be confused with the darkness, it’s not mental anguish and black godlusts that are spewing forth here, just the natural logistics of flesh, the slippery smelly stuff, honesty of form in the chitterlings and the old shambles. Semi-solid beings playing songs of uncomfortable physicality.
Wrap this whole package up in an absolutely gorgeous 2-color, screen-printed sleeve (art by LUMPY himself) and you have a 100% essential hardcore LP.”

Primetime

Mastering Primetime for La Vida Es Un Mus Records.

“Self-proclaimed ‘chaotic neurotics’, Primetime release their debut four track EP on La Vida Es Un Mus. These four ladies deal in note perfect post punk which harks back to the glory years of 1979 to 1982. ‘Tied Down’ is the calling card and is a scratchy mix of Kleenex and Delta 5 with an instant hook. The sound is raw and minimal yet inventive. You can’t help but fall in love with this band after just one listen.”

Go ahead do yourself a favour and buy it.

 

Ricky C Quartet

Mastering the Ricky C Quartet‘s second LP “Recent Affairs” on Wanda Records.

“Their long-awaited second album!
They’re loud, they’re fast and they’re dangerous! Its The Ricky C Quartet, bringing a style of classic punk rock n’ roll infused with a heaping dose of antipodean influenced adrenaline! Delivering a snarling energy with pissed-off lyrics and red-hot guitar leads, backed by walking bass lines that’ll get those feet moving” “

 

 

Hallowed Butchery

Mastering Hallowed Butchery “Canticle of the Beast” on Thought Crime Records.

“Experimental Doom Metal mayhem from Maine/USA. This has all been played and recorded by a single person, Ryan Fairfield. His music is full of passion and giving the term “brutal” a new meaning. This was recorded before his life changing „funeral rites for the living“ album on Vendetta records and has been released on a cassette tape in a quantity of 100 copies on the same label in 2008.

This re-mastered vinyl re-issue is limited to 500 copies.”
