If I had to take a guess where warren ellis was taking Secret Avengers this would probably be it.

Barrabarracuda - Abasement Tapes

Abasement Tapes

A pretty underrated slab from the NNF crew. Loose noisy jams. One of my favs no doubt.

Stefan Jaworzyn - Lick My Pussy, Will Montgomery

Lick My Pussy, Will Montgomery

About 20 or so minutes of guitar destruction. Ascension, Rudolph Grey/Blue Humans, earlyish Skullflower are touchstones.

I don't wanna hype it too much, but it's fucking awesome.

PUKERS - Dead Dog

Dead Dog

For whatever reason whenever I take a quick glance at the cover I can't help but think that's William Faulker holding the dead dawg.

Ashtray Navigations - Last Kiss Amateur Frequencies

Last Kiss Amateur Frequencies

A pretty low key, yet great, single from the almighty Ashtray Navigations. This is actually one of my favs they've done.

Fantastic cover.

Temperatures - Ymir [REPOST FIXED LINK]


Sorry about the delay on the reup of this, but now you'll finally get to hear side B! Hope it was worth the wait. sorryaboutthati'majerk.

Here's an a story that pretty well illustrates my history with Temperatures and my own stupidity.

For the longest time, despite reading reviews that describe them pretty well as NOT being this, I thought these guys would sound like fucking Fuck Buttons. I actually have a soft spot for Fuck Buttons [It's like a Fisher Price "MY FIRST NOISE RECORD" type thing. i love it.], but i was shocked when i bought mp3's of Eskra and it was much more in line with what bands like Talibam! are doing that anything else.

I think I've jammed this puppy more than any record I've heard in recent memory. It's a solid motherfucker.

United Waters - Your First Ever River lp

Your First Ever River


Sorta fitting that this came out on Arbitrary Signs since Nolan's Spectre Folk project is kinda the closest comparison I can think of of the top of my head.

I hope that makes some sort of sense.

Afternoon Penis - High Noon

High Noon

Best Band Name Ever? YES OH YES!
