Ghostwriter
LP | 2016 | US | Original (S-S)
17,99 €*
Release:2016 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
The small towns of California’s northern Central Valley have an eerie loneliness to them. Cinematically, take Two-Lane Blacktop and fuse it with Neil Young’s Human Highway. Fix that into music and you’d get something like Ghostwriter. Odd rock & roll from Orland, California, the home of the dearly departed NOTHING PEOPLE (and theater organ legend George Wright), Ghostwriter lurks in the dust-caked shadows of rusted old cars and “obsolete,” solidstate, electronic instruments. The Chrome-meets-psych sounds of the Nothing People is there, with some haunted rockabilly à la Alan Vega, Residents-like wooziness, and something that conjures the words “paranoid closet.” These outsider / loner rock sounds will be listened to for years to come. Limited pressing of 300 copies.

Genre:Rock / Indie
bAd bAd started in 2012 when Christian Zamora and Eli Maness started making noise in the foggy outskirts of San Francisco’s Sunset District. Joined by Christian’s brother Michael and drummer Patrick Webb, the band obsessed on the faraway sounds of Peruvian ’60s legends Los Saicos and the Turkish guitar melodies of Erkin Koray, as well as Link Wray. After a year or so of playing hyperactive spaghetti western instrumentals and now based in Oakland, they incorporate other influences: the pop-infused punk of Jay Reatard, one-chord Hawkwind power jams, and the highbrow playfulness of the Suburban Lawns. Disparate sounds, yes, but bAd bAd turns them into exciting buzzsaw-pop with Barrett / Floyd interludes. With recording starting in 2015, they perfected this album until it became a seamless psychedelic pop piece of punk energy.

A reissue of a classic US hc-punk album from 1983. Inspired by The Buzzcocks, The Jam, PiL, and Wire, The Proletariat tapped into the high energy hardcore punk swirling around and infused it with art-punk excitement. By the time that their classic debut hit, The Proletariat were being referred to as "America's Gang of Four" and a more supercharged Pop Group.

2nd album from San Francisco ensemble - feelings of anger, self-doubt & vindictiveness weave through a sonic template that shifts from a Flipper/ Fang arms-a-swingin' groove to standout Velvet poppers, Stooge-oid stomping, & outright demented thuds.
Screature - Four Columns
Screature
Four Columns
LP | 2015 | US | Original (S-S)
18,99 €*
Release:2015 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Screature’s second album Four Columns opens with shimmering guitar and incantation... and then it flies. Chris Orr’s atmospheric guitar is a cool companion to Liz Mahoney’s haunting vocals; Sarah Scherer’s keys swirl to Miranda Vera’s insistent beat; it’s all brought to now by Chris Woodhouse’s excellent production. Call it dark psychedelia or post-punk black, Screature’s Four Columns is a creeping zodiac of sound. Screature came to life in 2008, in a dark corner of Sacramento, California. They spent three years making music in secret, wintering to Rudimentary Peni and Chrome, summering to Music Machine and PiL. In 2011, they played their first show, with Death Grips. And then hit the stage with White Lung, Chain & the Gang, Wounded Lion, Milk Music, TV Ghost and others. 2013 saw their debut LP flash through the sky (now back in print on S-S Records). D. Yudt called it the “feel-bad record of the year.” It landed in Chelsea Wolfe’s Pitchfork year-end “Best Of.” As good as the self-titled Screature is, Four Columns is better. The songs “Down Boys,” “Half Past Midnight,” and “Lost Ones” are already live hits; on record they rule other worlds. From front to back, Four Columns intoxicates.
Kim Ki O - Bir, Iki…
Kim Ki O
Bir, Iki…
LP | 2014 | US | Original (S-S)
17,99 €*
Release:2014 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Istanbul, Turkey; Year 2006: Ekin Sanaç and Berna Göl form Kim Ki O. Sanaç plays synth while Göl hits the bass. They both come up with beats and sing. Their music is lo-fi minimal synth with a post-punk / cold wave feel. The cool / warm dual female vocals are eerie and dreamy, referencing classic post-punk as well as traditional Turkish melodies but remaining understated. Over the next couple years, the pair releases two very limited CDRs and tours Scandinavia. In 2009 they appear on Radio Resistencia, released by the great Dutch synth label Enfant Terrible. One year later, Enfant Terrible releases their first album Dans. KFJC writes “The name of the band means ‘Who is that anyway’ in Turkish, and it reflects the ethereal nature of the sounds … a lovely early ’80s slow and somber electronic vibe (think Joy Division) combined with floaty, minimal lady vocals (sort of 4AD-ish like Cocteau Twins and Lush) … sweet, but not saccharine.” The vinyl issue of Dans quickly sells out. Over the next couple of years, Kim Ki O appears on various compilations and tours Turkey and Europe several times. They collaborate with Turkish filmmakers Merve Kayan and Zeynep Dadak on the short film Elope and write music for the Turkish performance group biriken for their play Re: Fwd: die in good company. In 2013, Lentonia Records out of France releases Grounds. It inspires a followup album of remixes called Grounds Album Remixes, also on Lentonia. In 2014, S-S Records dips into the Kim Ki O vaults and finds songs from their early CDRs. While the originals were muddy sounding, the tracks used for Bir, İki... (Turkish for “One, Two...”) are crystal clear. The vinyl—mastered by John Golden—gives Kim Ki O’s sound new warmth. These ten early tracks are a great addition to their catalog. Not content with music, film and drama, Sanaç and Göl are also involved in Turkey’s pro-democracy and women’s / gay rights movement. They strongly identify with other women in rock ’n’ roll and underground culture.
