Another fortnight, another Repressed Records stock update! Read on for a choice selection of local and international new releases and bunch of record we’re glad to have back in stock. A couple of Lumpy related releases, some great stuff from the ever reliable In The Red Records, a few intimate local releases, another great Alice Coltrane re-issue, we’ve re-stocked Nasho and Waak Waak Juni LPs and much more! Here we go…
From Solar / Sonar records we’ve got Harmony - Love Me Or Die 7”, Tom Lyngcoln - Doming Home LP and Moon Rituals - Self Titled LP. Moon Rituals is the minimal synth pop project of Sarah Hardiman from Deaf Wish, with Mikey Young contributing some additional instrumentation. Check it out, as there’s only 300 of these and I’m sure they won’t be round long.
Punk 7”s coast to coast: Brisbane’s Cold Fish - S/T EP (Tropical Cancer) and Perth’s Nerve Quakes - Running Rewind 7” (Televised Suicide). Plus Black Wire Records have bless us with one final Infinite Void album titled Infinite Waves.
A couple of cool cassettes...
PERFUME - Beauty Data Pollution (Self Released).
The duo of Lisa Lerkenfeldt and Grace Anderson.return after their debut on Paradise Daily Records. Industrial / musique concrete that's not afraid to be abstract, rhythmic, ugly and pretty sounding in the space of 30min.
SLEEP D - Erased (Altered State Tapes). Last year Melbourne electronic duo Sleep D were commissioned to play live accompanying David Lynch’s Eraserhead for the Cult Cinema pop-up series, Hear My Eyes. Erased is the result, rhythmic in moments, unsettling ambience in others.

CRUELSTER • Riot Boys (Lumpy)
From the minds that brought you Cleveland’s Perverts Again (check them out this weekend in Sydney).... “CRUELSTER's new record really is Against All Authority. Donnie got elected people thought the silver lining would be better punk? Hope you’re happy ! Here’s the one we’ve all been waiting in the mud for. Fourteen Tracks of seemingly dumb hardcore arranged to roast right wing daytime radio talking points. No flag remains unstood for here. “Crisis in Local Government Part III,” “The Pipeline could Work,” “Gold Studded Citizen” are only a taste of the ridicule. Join the Riot Boys and laugh at the system like never before.” - Lumpy
DONKEY BUGS • Ancient Chinese Secrets (Lumpy)
"Clevos DBs have created a bizarro left field masterpiece. Strange, mystical, mysterious—I just can’t remember the last time I was so debilitated by music. Some songs bring to mind the best late 00s drum machine punk bands such as Spider/Catatonic Youth, others move into industrial territory a la Monte Cazazza (especially 'The ABCs of Lust'). And a peppering of dub to boot! There are Multiple personalities behind the mic—a regular vocalist, a Russian woman, Kate Bush, a cheese loving northerner. The vocals really shine, some of the most confident lyrics I’ve heard. Definitely an unrestrained feel to the entire album (feedback as an instrument???) a la the Residents—the first time I heard it reminded me of the first time I head Duck Stab, completely mind bending. One of the best records I have ever put out."—Lumpy
EARTH GIRL HELEN BROWN • Four Satellites Vol. 1 (In The Red)
INNUMERABLE FORMS • Punishment In Flesh (Profound Lore)
“Massachusetts-based death metal force Innumerable Forms have completed their much anticipated, devastating debut album Punishment In Flesh. Formed in 2007 by mastermind Justin DeTore (Sumerlands, Magic Circle, Mind Eraser), a veteran of the Boston hardcore / power violence scene, as a solo project to bring forth his vision of death metal influenced by the Finnish style circa 1991, it quickly generated a cult following with their live shows supporting a small amount of releases, consisting of the Dark Worship 7-inch EP, a split with Blessed Offal, and the Frozen To Death compilation cassette. Now with this debut, they will harness the true spirit of ancient darkness and fury, seething with sheer brutality and primal rawness with total disregard and contempt for modern-day death metal.”
