Sleeper & Snake - Fresco Shed
Sleeper & Snake
Fresco Shed
LP | 2020 | EU | Original (Upset The Rhythm)
15,99 €*
Release:2020 / EU – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
While Sleeper & Snake pairs up the great Al Montfort (Total Control, The UV Race, Dick Diver) and Amy Hill (Primo!, Constant Mongrel), who’ve both found themselves in league as band mates in Terry, this album isn’t quite the pop pairing that it seems on the surface. Accompanying the strums, jangles, and geniality there’s also present offbeat electronics and free jazz fizz.

Clear History are a scorching post-punk trio from Berlin who make a big deal out of little things, sometimes vice versa. Pressing of 500 copies worldwide on 180gm black vinyl. Clear History’s debut mini-album is entitled 'bad advice good people' and will be released by Upset The Rhythm on November 5th. The six songs here cast a huge net across themes of raucous opposition, identity, closeness, gifting and exploding cars. They are a full-hearted call to arms from a stubborn Aries concerned with wasting time and energy. With such rapport for the touchstones of danceable post-punk (esg, Kleenex, Gang of Four) Clear History are proud hi-hat botherers, bounding along with the plummy bassline, joining the dots whilst thinking to the beat. This debut documents the tantalising first sparks from a band intent on holding up a magnifying glass to the sun. Their influences include correct grammar, Rihanna & ‘The Waiting Room’ by Fugazi. They make muscular songs about intimacy whilst dreaming of an extravagant breakfast the day after the rapture. What will the dance floors look like over there? What music will ring true and make the people move? Clear History are giving this their full atttention!

‘Dark World’ collects together choice material from Normil Hawaiians’ formative early years of 1979-1981.

‘Dark World’ gathers the group’s energetic 7” singles on Dining Out and Illuminated Records, their metamorphic ‘Gala Failed’ EP (Red Rhino) and a lively last-minute Peel session from 1980, alongside outtakes, rarities and demos.

Es - Less Of Everything Clear Vinyl Edition
Es
Less Of Everything Clear Vinyl Edition
LP | 2020 | EU | Original (Upset The Rhythm)
17,99 €*
Release:2020 / EU – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Less of Everything. The title of Es’ first full length LP could be interpreted as a manifesto pledge, an outright demand or a purely literal sonic descriptor of the London quartet’s glacial form of punk rock music. This tension between intent and interpretation has been a fundamental element of the group’s output from their formation.
Primo - Sogni
Primo
Sogni
LP | 2020 | EU | Original (Upset The Rhythm)
15,99 €*
Release:2020 / EU – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Primo are a quartet from Melbourne writing up-tempo, terse, chorus and verse with two guitars, bass, drums and a shared group vocal sensibility to adorn their enquiries into deconstructed punk. Their songs chime and charm, sounding at times bountiful, at others brittle, always buoyant with attention to detail. Primo songs are inquisitive, chasing down questions for answers hurrying away, amidst minimalist shuffle beats and ringing-out chords. The group’s debut album ‘Amici’ (2018) was a triumph of the underplayed, its small details pulling focus, allowing the album to treat us to unexpected truths in plain sight.
Future Islands - Tomorrow
Future Islands
Tomorrow
7" | 2012 | EU | Reissue (Upset The Rhythm)
7,99 €*
Release:2012 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Rock / Indie
Future Islands are a post-wave dance band from North Carolina - now residing in the fertile “music capital of awesome” Baltimore. Future Islands play a terse yet passionate music wrought from a stripped back palette. Gerrit Welmers’ cartwheeling synthesizer melodies tumble across the austere wilderness of William Cashion’s post punk bass pulse, driven ever forward by Eric Murillo’s ecstatic feel for rhythm.
Kaputt - Movement Now / Another War Talk
Kaputt
Movement Now / Another War Talk
7" | 2021 | EU | Original (Upset The Rhythm)
8,99 €*
Release:2021 / EU – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Glasgow post-punk six-piece Kaputt aren’t strangers to directing their explosive energy and maximalist vibrancy in the name of allegory and critique. Their 2019 debut album on Upset the Rhythm ‘Carnage Hall’ confidently deconstructed themes of surveillance, paranoia, and cultural identity through a sonic lens of high-tempo, bright, danceable pop hooks and technical, polyphonic rhythms which border on the bombast of Zeuhl.
Buffet Lunch - The Power Of Rocks
Buffet Lunch
The Power Of Rocks
LP | 2021 | EU | Original (Upset The Rhythm)
17,59 €* 21,99 € -20%
Release:2021 / EU – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Buffet Lunch are a Scottish group who make it their mission to craft satisfyingly imperfect pop songs filled with imagery and humour.The group’s elementary parts are Perry O’Bray (Vocals/Keys/Guitar), Neil Robinson (Bass), John Muir (Lead Guitar) & Luke Moran (Drums), united by a shared love of music on the ABBA-to-Beefheart axis. These four ricochet between Glasgow and Edinburgh, creating music that bristles with DIY spirit and upbeat wonkiness. Their tracks are vigorous excursions, meandering into clattersome terrain as often as hiking up into the breezy, melodious foothills.The desire to lead the listener along a curious tale helps tie things together, showcasing a lyrical playfulness that pins down their puzzle of sound.
Vintage Crop - Serve To Serve Again Light Blue Vinyl Edition
Vintage Crop
Serve To Serve Again Light Blue Vinyl Edition
LP | 2020 | EU | Reissue (Upset The Rhythm)
19,99 €*
Release:2020 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Rock / Indie
Vintage Crop serve to serve again. Over the last four years the Geelong group have become a burgeoning force in the Australian punk scene. Their burly, brusque yet supple songs have evolved from the garage rock of 2017’s ‘TV Organs’ album into the post-punk panic attack of last year’s ‘Company Man’ EP. Now they’ve sculpted their sound further, the barrage now offset with robust songwriting, their full-pelt bounce tempered with flailing guitar lines and sardonic commentary. Bringing to mind Wire tackling tracks from early 7”s by The Yummy Fur, it’s an inspired approach, both striking and effortlessly mirthful. Vintage Crop still dish-up plenty of commanding stomp, their lyrics remain as keen-eyed as ever, but now they’re unafraid to mess with the tempo and drive their point home.

Release:2020 / EU – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
When Upset The Rhythm released Normil Hawaiians’ lost album ‘Return Of The Ranters’ back in 2015, the band members got back in touch with each other after a 30 year break and starting playing music together again. Out of this the group played a launch show for the album and followed that up with more concerts, including an appearance at Supernormal, a residency at the Edinburgh Festival, gigs at Cafe OTO and supporting Richard Dawson in London too. They even recently toured Greece in support of having all three of their renowned exploratory post-punk albums finally back in print.

Release:2020 / EU – Original

LP | 2019 | EU | Original (Upset The Rhythm)
16,99 €*
Release:2019 / EU – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Lunch Lady are a sparky group from Los Angeles redolent of the desert heat, pining hearts and that chorus-soaked cloak of sound held dear by followers of British early 80s post-punk.
Trash Kit - Horizon
Trash Kit
Horizon
LP | 2019 | EU | Original (Upset The Rhythm)
16,99 €*
Release:2019 / EU – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Trash Kit are Rachel Aggs (guitar, vocals), Rachel Horwood (drums, vocals) and Gill Partington (bass). Three deeply creative individuals who play in a multitude of other groups including Bas Jan, Sacred Paws, Shopping and Bamboo, united by a shared decade of spry musicality that surges through their bodies, hearts and heads with Trash Kit. Their songs once succinct, patchwork post-punk numbers of an honest diary-like nature now tussle more with long-form songwriting, expeditious polyphony and cascades of sung-spoke vocals. This new focus began with their last album ‘Confidence’ (2014) and has now grown into something exhilarating and rapturous. New songs like ‘Disco’ have had their very fabric stretched into smart new shapes, allowing the band to run away with refrains and unlock the dancefloor. Although Trash Kit have their forebears in bands like Sleater Kinney, The Ex and The Raincoats, their sound is still very much their own take on facing forwards and relies as much on the naturalism of an internalised folk music as on their sincerity of vision.
Hygiene - Private Sector
Hygiene

LP | 2019 | EU | Original (Upset The Rhythm)
16,99 €*
Release:2019 / EU – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Having released a slew of singles and an LP on various DIY labels in the US and the UK at the turn of this decade, London post-punk stalwarts return from hiatus with their sophomore effort, Private Sector.
Nots - 3
Nots
3
LP | 2019 | EU | Original (Upset The Rhythm)
16,99 €*
Release:2019 / EU – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
At first glance, 3 seems like a perfectly fitting title for a new nots album. After all, it is the Memphis band’s third full-length (two released by Heavenly) and their first as a trio. Makes sense. But after you begin to peel back the layers of 3—unearthing every writhing guitar squall and every piercing vocal melody—the spirit of the record comes into much clearer focus.

Sequence
LP | 2018 | EU | Original (Upset The Rhythm)
13,59 €* 15,99 € -15%
Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Rattle is an ongoing musical project concerned with experiments in rhythm, metre and tension. Katharine Eira Brown and Theresa Wrigley make up the duo from Nottingham, who with just drums and occasional vocalisations weave an expanse of percussive vortices. Their songs swirl and envelop with all the physicality and drama of another world pulling together around its own shifting centre of gravity. The drum beats phase and sidestep, they trade accents and overlap, providing a suitably alive terrain for the vocals to explore similar tendencies of pattern.
Guttersnipe - My Mother The Vent
Guttersnipe
My Mother The Vent
LP | 2018 | EU | Original (Upset The Rhythm)
15,99 €*
Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
They say the PR era, circa late 80’s killed the golden age of music journalism: They say Guttersnipe have continuously melted all the forms that they come up against. They are right. Because Guttersnipe is not part of a tradition we know well. You will identify the departure from it though, immediately, upon hearing My Mother The Vent. This LP, the promotional version of which, likely sits in your hands (disk, whatever). The innovation here is a FIRM commitment to the flowmotive polyrhythm underwriting the seared, nay fried, tonal rainbow and de-reasoned vox.

Vital Idles - Left Hand
Vital Idles
Left Hand
LP | 2018 | EU | Original (Upset The Rhythm)
14,99 €*
Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
A download code is included. Playing their first shows in Glasgow in 2015 during a summer that never threatened to show up, Vital Idles’ origins are closely tied with a tireless underground culture, a culture that informs the band’s refusal to take it easy. Matthew Walkerdine, Nick Lynch and Higgins are responsible for Glasgow DIY publishing institution Good Press - an independent volunteer-staffed zine and art book shop - while Guitarist Ruari MacLean’s pedigree stretches back to breakneck-indie-pop group Golden Grrrls and the Rose McDowall band.
Dog Chocolate - Snack Fans
Dog Chocolate
Snack Fans
LP | 2016 | EU | Original (Upset The Rhythm)
9,99 €* 13,99 € -28%
Release:2016 / EU – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Dog Chocolate sound like a crowded room but are actually four individuals from London. Having played in many other bands including Yeborobo, Limn and Gasp! Cracking Eggs, united they recognise Dog Chocolate as their one true love. Abandoning notions of elegance, cred and professionalism they embrace the ramshackle, instant and fun, capturing a vivid spontaneity with their music. ‘Snack Fans’ is the band’s debut album, following on from 2014’s release ‘Or’, a split LP with gastronomic kin Ravioli Me Away (also released by Upset The Rhythm).

‘Snack Fans’ is comprised of 14 bite-sized nuggets high in salt and sugar content. The sound is a shabby, fast, over-excited ball of wet fur falling down the stairs, knocking over plant pots along the way and staining the carpet. With an average song time of 2 minutes, Dog Chocolate are on to the next treat before fully digesting the last. Chewing up bits of punk, post-punk, noise and pop, Matthew and Robert’s guitars race around each other like wasps, pitch-shifting and phasing all over the place while Jono’s rolled-up-newspaper drums chase them round the room. Andrew’s occasional impressionistic keyboard flourishes add further colour to the scene, whilst Andrew and Robert take it in turns to sing with the others joining in occasionally.

Lyrically the album deals with themes domestic, emotional and metaphysical: purging your life of material possessions, cosmically ordering a pet, memories evoked by the tactile properties of objects, the impermanence of the body, confusion, holidays, environmental concern and hay fever. There are moments of flippancy and silliness, but also of investigation and introspection.

On ‘Emotionally Buff’, Andrew tells the tale of an ill-fated band he played in called Mature and how their music was a kind-of primal scream therapy for the angst they felt at the precariousness of their living conditions. “My bed was an increasingly mouldy futon, surrounded by towers of boxes of all of my stuff, I was awoken at 5am by a burglar, whose t-shirt was inside-out and back-to-front” admits Andrew with his often anecdotal vocal. On ‘Be a Bloody River’, Robert strings together a list of failures and pointless endeavours “I’m trying to coax a sparrow into a cardboard box .... I’m stroking the mane of a concrete horse .... I’m managing a spill with a blood-stained jay cloth....” getting increasingly frustrated. Andrew tries to calm him, urging him to let his troubles wash over him “be a river, be a bloody river”, Rob responds in mock desperation “I’m trying to be a river, I’m trying!”.

In just over 25 minutes the band gleefully assemble a roller-skate of sound held together with sellotape and blu-tac, just robust enough to reach it’s destination as it’s chucked downhill. It’s an album packed with ideas and momentum, no need to set the table, Dog Chocolate are in a rush. If ‘Snacks Fans’ doesn't satisfy your appetite then you’ll need to fix yourself a feast or something.

Sauna Youth
Distractions
LP | 2015 | UK | Original (Upset The Rhythm)
16,99 €*
Release:2015 / UK – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Sauna Youth are an evolving band of future humans making truly irregular punk, not quite comparable to anything else. 'Weird' is a meaningless platitude, and 'art punk' is a classifier that shouldn't be required.
