OUT NOW! The Tailbreakers - s/t

The 5th release on Ongakubaka Records is here! Stream it in full and grab a tape or digital copy over at our bandcamp, and be sure to check out the new video for their psychedelic cabaret single, "Rooster Call", below. 

“Some sweet garage rock drenched with a little bit of surf. [The Tailbreakers] could be a very cool lost nugget from ’66…” – 50Third and 3rd 

 “Fueled by fuzzed out wha-wha guitars and a swagger filled rhythm section these guys sound like something straight out of "Easy Rider". The smooth sounding vocals are nothing short of stellar and bring to mind The Small Faces, Lemon Pipers and The Morning Dew.” – Custom Made Music 

“The Tailbreakers have a great sparse, classic Garage Rock sound that you will dig if you like the Nuggets/Pebbles era bands.” – Thee Psychedelicatessen

Sheraf - 12" Maxi-Single

Amazing brooding psych out of France. Quality tunes pressed on, and surrounded by, quality materials. Limited to only 200 copies on 180g vinyl and encased in a heavy black paper screen-printed with silver ink, this Six Tonnes De Chair Records' release is the most representative of the label's mantra of "MAKE LITTLE MAKE GOOD". If you dig the dark trance of The Blue Angel Lounge or anything on Fuzz Club Records, you're going to love Sheraf's sound. Grab a copy of the vinyl before it's too late over at bandcamp.

Holy Monitor - Aeolus

Hypnotizing psych out of Athens, Greece. Driving rhythms and a rotation of foreboding vocal/organ/guitar riffs will have the 4 track EP quickly burrowing its way into your memory. Grab a digital download for cheap through their bandcamp.

Minami Deutsch - s/t

Great new release from one of my favorite newer labels, Tokyo's Guruguru Brain. Transcendent Can/Neu!-influenced kraut grooves. Drift away to two of the tracks over at bandcamp and pre-order yourself a limited edition cassette asap.

Mankid - Mankid 1

Brutal dueling electronics/percussion à la Mindflayer. In other words, it definitely sounds like it could have been a product of Fort Thunder and they'd fit in nicely with the rest of the Load Records lineup. This is METAL in the most literal sense of the word. The 3 track cassette EP, limited to 50, as well as the name your price download, are available via bandcamp.
