Profligate - Somewhere Else
Somewhere Else
LP | 2018 | US | Original (Wharf Cat)
21,99 €*
Release:2018 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Noah Anthony walks the line between dark pop and noise on the new Profligate LP, Somewhere Else. In doing so, he weaves minimal beats, synthesizer, electric bass, hushed vocals and sheets of droning noise into something larger than the sum of its parts. First single “Enlist” acts as the album’s centrifuge—a flashing synth and electric bass drive the track directly into a thrilling accelerando where the instruments swirl madly. This track is the peak of the album’s fevered middle third, which pushes the more meditative songs to Somewhere Else’s more languid bookends. The glacial title track achieves grandness by pairing hyper-detailed and minimal instrumentation with gorgeous vocals by Anthony and L.A. poet/musician ELAINE KAHN framed by an arrangement that allows a spacious build. “Black Plate” is the dark pop moment here, featuring airy lead vocals from Kahn above a stately beat all leading toward the refrain, “Touch what’s sweet like / There is no one home.” Anthony’s live bass is in full force on this track with jazzy figures that respond to Kahn’s careful phrasing—if you’ve seen Profligate in the last year you know the bass is the secret weapon. These are just three tracks on this diverse collection that nonetheless feels like a cohesive song cycle. Somewhere Else deftly balances seeming opposites—chaos and composition, melody and noise, programmed and live instrumentation, all with a distinctly human touch.

Stone Fish
LP | 2017 | US | Original (Wharf Cat)

Release:2017 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Big French have returned, following up their maverick 2013 debut LP Downtown Runnin with Stone Fish, a 16-track sophomore full-length that sees bandleader Quentin Moore's energetic bursts of post-punk composition transformed by boutique, reel-to-reel production to fantastic ends, filtering established pop sensibilities through eclectic idioms of free-expression. On Stone Fish—the band’s third release for Wharf Cat Records—Moore shares co-production credits alongside longtime collaborator Zach Phillips (Blanche Blanche Blanche, OSR Tapes) and orchestrates electric performances from band members Colin White, Adam Steck, Jo Miller-Gamble, as well as a cameo appearance from Ausin Julian (The Sediment Club, Sunk Heaven).

Holy Motors
7" | 2017 | US | Original (Wharf Cat)
8,99 €*
Release:2017 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Holy Motors sound like the bastard love child of Hope Sandoval and Ennio Morricone born in the back of a ‘67 Trans Am and raised on nothing but Slowdive and My Bloody Valentine. Their sound lies somewhere between the wind with a vibrato and the soundtrack to a non-existent movie.

Cottaging - Amyl Banshee EP
Amyl Banshee EP
12" | 2016 | US | Original (Wharf Cat)
16,19 €* 17,99 € -10%
Release:2016 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Cottaging is the smartest anti-intellectual band in the West. 6 songs of unhinged, broken-mirror post punk spliced with stuttering tape collage & synth bile. It is driving & conventional in many ways, but it errs on the side of otherness. Cottaging uses a dupe print of your favorite bands but not before staining it with chemicals skimmed off the Providence River. For fans of broken delay pedals, Burroughs short stories, latex smells of Halloween outlet stores & spy radio transmissions. Note: not a drugged out record as much as one for those committing to withdrawal. Features members of UKIAH DRAG

Deep Marble Sunrise
LP | 2016 | US | Original (Wharf Cat)
20,89 €* 21,99 € -5%
Release:2016 / US – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Coca Leaf was a collaborative birthed in the hot Florida swamp years ago. "Deep Marble Sunrise" was sculpted from a series of brain-fried studio sessions in NYC taking place in the summer 2015. The manic ramping-up & the inevitable come-down intertwine here. The party & the empty vaccuum that follows. For this LP, the group is comprised of multi-instrumentalists ZZ Ramirez (Ukiah Drag), David Vassalotti & Carson Cox (Merchandise), & Ben Greenberg (Hubble). The cuts follow their impulses freely, coming up with a strange combination of hard funk, jazz, noise, no-wave, free improvisation, & dub.

Release:2016 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Providence, RI's Cottaging (who have ties to both AMERICAN SNAKESKIN & UKIAH DRAG) return with the extra crispy "Headhunter" b/w "Mamajuana Nightcap"! It's been almost a year since the release of the now sold out "The Amyl Banshee EP" & the subsequent tour that saw the band convert even more contemporary music listeners with their pummeling live act & singular wild western apocalyptic style. Featuring hand screened jackets by The Sultan. "Rachel Lewallen's queasy saxophone squall assumes the foreground & begins to spar with spindly, serpentine guitar leads. It sounds like a bout of musical shadowboxing. The gripping passage gleans more weight from the lyrics: a tale of besties Snakecharmer & Headhunter, dancing in diabolical solidarity." - Pitchfork

Release:2015 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Snakehole's EP highlights their intuition. In a tumultuous chain of reactions, we are taken on a ride through a spectrum of love & despair. Reacting off of each other, Autumn Casey & KC Toimil pursue their respective inner demons, chasing them in a relentless symbiotic attack. Snakehole has been an outlet for Autumn & KC's rage since 2010. The band has primarily released homemade cassettes, along with a self-titled release last year with DIY Miami based label, No Work Records.
Psychic Blood - Alien
Psychic Blood
12" | 2015 | US | Original (Wharf Cat)
12,34 €* 18,99 € -35%
Release:2015 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Western MA trio Psychic Blood's debut EP is comprised of 6 tracks of lush beauty & noise marred by shredding guitar whose reverb drips down the walls like expired glue before coalescing in dark corners. Conceived from lost causes, sleepless nights, & a brush with death which landed guitarist / vocalist Jason Vachula in the hospital, "Alien" is less about extraterrestrial beings than it is about alienation from one's own self & the surrounding world. At its core this is not a downer record, but rather a burst of energy; a celebration of the lost, the truly free.
