FIFTEEN- "Swain's First Bike Ride" LP/CD/Cass

Definitive reissue by Berkeley, California-based punk band, FIFTEEN. From the ashes of east bay legends, Crimpshrine, came Fifteen. "Swain's First Bike Ride" is their first full-length album, recorded in December 1990. Originally released on 12" vinyl in 1991 on Lookout! Records. CD edition contains the band's self-titled EP from the previous year as bonus tracks, just like the Lookout original disc, which was released a year later in 1992. Gloriously restored & remastered from the original reel-to-reel master tapes by Carl Saff at Saff Mastering.

FIFTEEN- S/T 7" E.P.
Definitive reissue by Berkeley, California-based punk band, FIFTEEN. From the ashes of east bay legends, Crimpshrine, came Fifteen. Fifteen embarked on their first tour in the summer of 1989, and recorded their debut EP in April 1990 for Lookout! Records. Gloriously restored & remastered from the original reel-to-reel master tapes by Carl Saff at Saff Mastering.

GREENSLEEP- "Cheap Headphones" LP
New York's 90's indie/punk vets, Greensleep are back after a quick 18 year break. The band has quite the interesting story, being a long island indie/punk staple in the 90's, with releases on Alone Records, as well as Long Island's Motherbox Records. Since breaking & recently reuniting, they have delivered a slew of new songs with their "Summer Single Series" & "Things We Didnt Know EP", with new member Scott Martin (of Silent Majority/Mind Over Matter). Self-described as "barrel aged indie rock", Greensleep are back with their second full-length album of all brand new material, show-casing that some good things get even better.

RVIVR- "The Tide/Shaggy" 7"
Originally released overseas early 2017 to conincide with an Australian tour, this is a 7 inch single of two brand new songs from Olympia, WA.'s, RVIVR. "There's a new full length on the horizon... and these songs are about a lot of loss, love and voice." One of these songs is about one our dear friends, the late great Barker Gee ("Shaggy"). RIP. One time pressing of 500. (Comes w/ download)

CAVES- "Always Why" LP
Caves return with their 3rd full length LP, "Always Why" out on Dead Broke/Specialist Subject/Yo-Yo Records on April 28th, 2017. This new album is a big change in songwriting style for Caves, now writing remotely via GarageBand demo exchanges, with band members split between the UK and USA (rather than their previous home, Bristol). This new approach sees the band exploring a greater depth in sounds and expression than the straight forward pop punk of previous recordings. Lyrically the album's still as personal as ever touching on the heartbreak of border crossings, queer love at 16 and coming to terms with bad relationship choices. Produced by Peter Miles at Middle Farm Studios in rural Devon over the summer months. The recording captures their tight, fuzzed out pop punk akin to 90s favorites like The Breeders, Nirvana and Blue - era Weezer.

BEAR TRADE- "Silent Unspeakable" LP
Bear Trade are back. North East England four-piece punk band's second album 'Silence Unspeakable' on Everything Sucks Music (Europe) & Dead Broke (US/CAN). Greg Robson (vocals/guitar) goes into some detail about the interim between albums and the inspiration behind 'Silence Unspeakable': "Since the last record (2014's debut full length 'Blood & Sand') a lot has happened. There have been deaths, break-ups, marriages, births. You could actually restructure the tracks and form a loose narrative of the last three years of my life, but although there are a lot of quite sad songs on the album, don't worry it all had a very happy ending. As with the last offering, the songs have me writing from the heart and from personal experience. They look at finding love. Relationships and family. Finding your way, and saying goodbye. In short they are about life."

YOUR PEST BAND- "Old Springhead" 2XLP
Brand new double full-length album from Japan's best garage power-pop punkers! Your Pest Band are back and deliver 17 songs of lo-fi garage power pop rock achin' to the Rolling Stones & The Zombies, mixed with the rough edges of bands like The Jam & Husker Du. One could even consider this the bands, "Zen Arcade". This is clearly YPB's greatest material to date, cohesively melodic pop, laced through-out in pure rock & roll hooks. There's even the 16-minute long opus, "Swell", which is impressively the best, longest song we've ever heard. Cannot recommend this one enough. Housed in a beautiful deluxe gatefold jacket with stunning artwork. (Co-release w/ Brassneck & Snuffy Smiles)
