Malos Modales

Mixing Malos Modales forthcoming S/T EP.

Killer Power Pop, Punk, Rock n Roll from Monterrey, Mexico. If you haven’t heard of them, you have now. You won’t regret the listen!



Mastering Blotter’s 7″ coming out on Erste Theke Tonträger.

Hardcore punk featuring members of Wiccans, Glue, Impalers and Creamers.

“Hey, Hardcore-Fans! Lose your minds! Here’s the real deal. Blotter is everything you want from a modern day hardcore punk band. Over the past few years, Austin, TX has seen a resurgence in young, quality punk bands. Blotter is one of the top tier groups of this new school of Texas hardcore and Under Armour ’77, their debut vinyl effort, stands as some of the best work this scene has produced. Primordial ooze USHC at its finest.

Blotter delivers just brutal, stomping stuff with a perfect, early 80s-sounding 8-track production. This five piece band rages through five songs in a little over five minutes. Fast precise hard hitting drums, loud distorted guitar that flirts with chaotic, noisy feedback, compliment dynamic and aggressive vocals that have just the right amount of snot and grit. Their sound touches on classic 80’s hardcore, whilst paying no tribute to any other HC band I’ve listened to in the last few years. This is unique, this is weird, fucked up and awesome! No filler on this EP – it’s all legit. No nonsense Hardcore in 2014, go and get your copy. Fuck.”


River City Riot

Mastering Riverside Riot “Radio Reality”.

Austin Punk Rock.


Street Eaters

Mastering Street Eaters second full-length, BLOOD::MUSCLES::BONES, on Nervous Intent Records (U.S.) and Contraszt! Records (Europe).

Recorded at Portland’s Buzz or Howl by the esteemed Stan Wright, here is what The Bay Bridged have to say about it:

“Street Eaters may know a thing or two about crafting confrontational tunes, if their newest single “Reverse” is any indicator. The Berkeley-based duo, comprised of drummer Megan March and guitarist John No, recently shared the track off their sophomore full-length, Blood::Muscles::Bones out on Nervous Intent Records on June 17.

That said: “Reverse” may or may not be in the running for the best heavy, post-punk jam of the fast-approaching summer. The song is like a pile driver, with elements that come together to imfringe upon you for its roughly two minutes and thirty seconds of existence. If you like raw, sincere music with a sense of agency and urgency.”

Mastering the Ricky C Quartet‘s new 7″ on Wanda Records.

This is what they said about their debut 7″:

“Remember 10-15 years ago when there were hardly any good English punk bands? Now there are so many great ones that even the “side projects” are freaking phenomenal. Seriously, the current crop of U.K. punk groups has to be the best in at least 20 years. And when members of The Blowouts, Johnny Throttle, and the Ten-O-Sevens start a band based on a mutual love for Slaughter and the Dogs and Radio Birdman, you just know it’s gonna be the balls. The Ricky C Quartet, formed just last year, have dropped their debut single. “Small Species”, another No Front Teeth/Rapid Pulse Records co-release, brings to mind the harder edge of classic Brit-punk infused with a heaping dose of Aussie adrenaline. In short, this band is 100 percent as advertised. Both tracks here deliver some snarling rock n’ roll with pissed-off lyrics and red-hot guitar leads, backed by bass lines that’ll get your booty bouncing. And let’s face it: nobody spews profanity with the panache of the English. A sing-along refrain of “Don’t fuck around me!”, so delightfully acrimonious here, wouldn’t sound nearly as cool if these guys were from, say, New Jersey. Both “Small Species” and “Tonight” imbue a profuse fuck-off sentiment with serious catchiness – a formula that can’t lose when it’s done well. All in all, this is an absolutely ripping debut record. Nothing fancy or unexpected here – just great punk played furiously and brilliantly. Where have all the boot boys gone?”
