TYVEK

Tyvek's In The Red debut, Nothing Fits, is a scalding collection of amped-up and thrust-out songs that crank up the energy level far beyond their previous releases, and decimate the detractors into the abyss. It's Tyvek at their fiery, screaming best, and if this doesn't curl your eyebrows and your toes simultaneously with excitement, then you might need to settle for something musically akin to hospital food or take another laxative, because this blast of new recordings might just flush out your system to the point of personal emergency.

WOODS

Over the past few years Woods have established themselves as an anomaly in a world of freaks. They were an odd proposition even in the outré company of vocalist/guitarist/label owner Jeremy Earl’s Woodsist roster, perpetually out of time, committed to songsmanship in an age of noise, drone and improvisation, to extended soloing, oblique instrumentals and the usurping use of tapes and F/X in an age of dead-end singer-songwriters.
 
At Echo Lake released last year (woodsist) feels like a diamond-sharp distillation of the turbulent power from their live shows, in much the same way that The Grateful Dead’s “Dark Star” single amplified and engulfed the planetary aspect of their improvised takes.
 
Deformed by contemporary experiments, bolstered by magical traditions from the past, WOODS the sound of now, right here,

JULIANNA BARWICK

Describing this hazy, hallucinogenic album from Brooklyn's Julianna Barwick, you can neatly take Panda Bear's trippier tracks as a jumping off point, as Barwick loops and layers beautiful vocal harmonies with a similar slow-motion deep sea vibe. But, The Magic Place is more than just derivative, and the wordless sound collages are transporting other music

SCREAMING FEMALES

The Screaming Females story starts in New Brunswick in 2005, with Marissa on guitar and vocals, Jarrett on drums, and Michael on bass. With no all-ages venues in town, the band met their biggest obstacle at the start: finding places to play. But the solution (if there is no venue to play, create your own show space in your basement) was the driving force behind the DIY work ethic that would eventually propel the band forward; the grassroots approach born out of necessity in New Brunswick ultimately developed into a mindset that the band now prides itself on. 
 
Screaming Females are one of those bands. The force-of-nature kind that only comes around once in a blue moon. The kind that blows minds; changes lives, the kind that re-ignites and redefines what music means to those whose faith may have waned in the most fundamental of ways.

KID CONGO AND THE PINK MONKEYBIRDS

Gun Club co-founder. Gunslinger for The Cramps. Six-string stylist for Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds. The legendary Kid Congo Powers and his Pink Monkey Birds (Ron “The Cap’n” Miller on drums along with, new Pink Monkey Bird, Jesse “The Candyman” Roberts) titles his new album on IN THE RED Records GORILLA ROSE after artist/performer Gorilla Rose.
 
Brandishing 13 all original glam-tastic compositions, GORIILA ROSE blasts off with the explosive dance anthem  “Bo Bo Boogaloo” wearing their 60’s Chicano Rock influence on their sleeves. Shake it don’t break it! That’s just the start of a wild ride thru funky but chic decadence (“Goldin Browne”) slip sliding rockabilly  (“Hills Of Pills”) ,Teenage punkdom (“Our Other World”) mystic  Kraut rock (“Bubble Trouble”) , baby-making sleaze (“Catsuit Fruit”),  the best bad Peyote trip you ever took ( “Injun War Crimes.”) and even a velvety call from the beyond (Lullaby in Paradise).   
 
Finding inspiration in the past is what Kid Congo and The Pink Monkey Birds do best. On this 2011 sonic trip, Kid brings his past into the present and names it after someone flamboyant and inspired. GORILLA ROSE.
