Artist: ACCIDENT DU TRAVAIL
Title: s/t
Format: LP
Label: Bruit Direct
Country: France
Price: $24.00
"Twenty-four minutes of Ondes Martenot recordings by JULIE NORMAL (CRADLE OF SMURF) and OLIVIER (CHEVEU). Maximal repeatable sound beauty, "somewhere between the lilting decay of Discreet Music and the disorientating phantom flirt of Maryanne Amachers Sound Characters (Making the Third Ear)" according to Doug Mosurock. "Its an impressive, subdued work, and anyone looking to end their evening on a restful comedown should look within." -Bruit Direct

Artist: BABADOUM
Title: s/t
Format: LP
Label: Bruit Direct
Country: France
Price: $29.00
“Bruit Direct Disques presents the first LP byBadaboum, a French all-star girl group that includesKrine (Headwar), Armelle (The Dreams), andSolene (Dudu Geva) and is affiliated with the famous Grande Triple Alliance de lEst posse (Ah Kraken, Feeling of Love, Scorpion Violente). They play a form of post-punk music akin to Liliput/Kleenex and Malaria!, adding their own reverbed idiosyncrasies and eerie organ lines and chanting in indecipherable Italian, mock German, and plain French. Taking turns on drums and blowing thru severed reeds, Badaboum will bring you as much joy as chaos.” - Bruit Direct.

Artist: CRO MAGNON
Title: S/T
Format: 7"
Label: Bruit Direct
Country: France
Price: $9.00
"45t presse a 500 exemplaires pour le monde. le mastering a ete fait par le grand john de chez golden mastering.il y a 3 morceaux, 2 sur la premiere face et un sur la deuxieme, oui." -Bruit Direct. "First American release by this intriguing French imprint, and its strongest release to date. Cro Magnon, not to be confused with the ESP-Disk outfit of yore, is Haley Fohr (Circuits des Yeux) and Katie Leming, operating in an overmodulated lo-fi gestalt. Theres pop here, in the same way that Times New Viking delivers it (Wash), but a lot more anger and discordance (A Hole), finally culminating in evocative, obtuse, broken dollhouse sounds of quiet fear (Apple Orchard). The slide from somewhat straightforward sounds to deliberate creep-on is quite the thing to behold, and if these two can keep the quality level up (seriously kids, there is NO NEED to release seven LPs worth of material before your 21st birthday), they will be a fondly remembered outfit in this troubled corner of musical expression and instant gratification through unformed scraps." - Dusted.

Artist: KITCHENS FLOOR
Title: Battle of Brisbane
Format: LP
Label: Bruit Direct
Country: France
Price: $26.00
"Battle of Brisbane is the third album by Kitchens Floor and their first full-length release since 2011s Look Forward to Nothing (Siltbreeze), which followed 2009s Loneliness Is a Dirty Mattress (R.I.P Society, Bedroom Suck Records). Guitarist and vocalist Matt Kennedy is joined by a new lineup of members including Robert Vagg (Wonderfuls, Meat Thump) on drums and Josh Watson (Sewers) on bass. Sarah Spencer (Blank Realm) also provides additional vocals. The album contains 10 tracks of uncompromisingly nihilistic outsider rock and roll. Inspired by the indifference of the city the band calls home and the sad events that can happen to the characters within it, Battle of Brisbane is a bitter ode to existential dread battered through a minimalist punk façade. Recorded by Luke Walsh (Blank Realm) and mastered by Marly Luske, Battle of Brisbane is a uniquely fucked oddity in the modern rock landscape." - Bruit Direct.

Artist: LA LIGNE CLAIRE
Title: Cheri
Format: LP
Label: Bruit Direct
Country: France
Price: $16.00
"Br-d 7 is a mini-lp by La Ligne Claire, a band of 4 young parisians : Charlene Darling (ex pussy patrol), Fifi (also in Total Crane, I think), Ines Di Folco (lycee Paul Bert) and Alexandre David Gabriel (alias). They believe they make african hi-life or reggae but were baby fed with lucrate milk. The music on this record is akin to no wave antilles and « little johnny jewel » but more disorienting than that. Anti funk lovers rock." -Bruit Direct.

Artist: MAMITORI ULITHI EMPRESS YONAGUNI SAN
Title: 25/12/2013
Format: LP
Label: Bruit Direct
Country: France
Price: $27.00
"In keeping with the freer releases in their catalog (Sky Needle, La Ligne Claire, Minitel), Bruit Direct Disques presents 25/12/2013, a live album by Japanese group 真美鳥Ulithi Empress Yonaguni San, often referred to by their nickname, Mamitori. Savagely DIY and autonomous, Mamitori have released only a handful of copies of a privately pressed record, while lead guitarist Aritomo has put out an abundance of self-produced acid-folk records, hand-assembling sleeves for every copy. David Keenan compared the bands 2012 album 一二三 Fairy Tail Chimidoro Phenomenon Satan Inferno Dress Ha Cattlemurarete Yggdrasill ハWa Sasaru to "Isnt Anything being creepy-crawled by Idiot OClock or the early Rough Trade singles as curated by Jutok Kaneko and Reiko Kudo." The six tracks offered here (drawn from that 2012 album) were recorded in public and are reproduced accurately, with silences and tuning included at the express request of the band. Guitars are skinned alive, twisted in counterpoint, or played with a cheesegrater; the frail vocal is as exhausted as it is sweet; the trumpet plays its dying breath; the bouncy rhythm section offers a skeleton of rigor; psych-rock is reduced here to fluff, with only a scraggy trunk of the spinal column remaining. Mamitori follows the traces of the ancestral giants of 70s avant-rock (Hendrix, Velvets, Captain Beefheart, Henry Cow, Can, The Red Krayola), except its an odd post-punk mess that spits from their amps. Accident is king with Mamitori, and their psychotic free rock, loaded with open-tuned guitars, sometimes feels like shreds of sound; limping and out of phase, played obliquely, their music is at once absolutely diaphanous and indecipherable. Nothing is ever in place and everything cracks up and frays; its an atonal construction that threatens to become melodious at any minute. Ultimately, Mamitori hides a form of twee pop unwittingly battered by no wave, every chord of which could be a blank bullet. One might mistake the sound for My Bloody Valentine violently colliding with The Shaggs, The Pastels attacked by Mars, or Pere Ubu holding paws with Swell Maps. Is a "No Tokyo" emerging decades after No New York? This live set, in front of a ghost-like public, serves as a hint of this Japanese bands profound peculiarity, joyfully perplexing everyone even further by citing alternative j-rock supertars LArc-en-Ciel as an influence. Mamitori will have you humming songs you hadnt noticed were there." - Bruit Direct Disques.

Artist: MINITEL
Title: s/t
Format: 7"
Label: Bruit Direct
Country: France
Price: $9.00
"Ripe with schizophrenic angst," our friends at Siltblog cant help but notice, "The A-side is clearly borne out of the avant soil once trod upon by Ilitch and DDAA, while the flip sounds like the band harvested an entire field of wormwood, distilling it into a noxious absinthe of Swans-like potency.... [B]lind carnage ... follows.... Bruit-Direct is growin real live monsters, no two ways about it." Both guitarists also play in SISTER IODINE." -Bruit Direct

Artist: MOUSE SLUTS
Title: s/t
Format: 12"
Label: Bruit Direct
Country: France
Price: $14.00
"This EP began with a newspaper story that tickled the warped funny-bones of Dan Melchior and Graham Lambkin and gave birth to some lyrics. The wonderful keyboard talents of the late Letha Rodman Melchior (1959-2014) were pivotal in the most "musical" of the tracks, the poignant closer "Vaccanti." Glen Rodman Melchior (whose claim for "most recorded budgie" with Guinness World Records is pending at the time of this release) lent his indispensable and unmistakable vocals to "Mower Bath Man." Without too many signposts or safe footholds, this just might scratch that itch you didnt even know you had." - Bruit Direct.

Artist: SCORPION VIOLENTE
Title: s/t
Format: 12"
Label: Bruit Direct
Country: USA
Price: $21.00
"If Jacno had been raped by Iggy Pop, missed the abortion, abandonned (sic) the child on the fringes of a Cronemberg movie; if this child survived, was kidnapped and sold as a sex slave to Alan Vega by Donna Summer, (just after releasing I Feel Love), escaped in the dark streets of a violent b-movie involving cops, militia, sweat, dirt, lizards with guns, and naked nubile women, he would feel like SCORPION VIOLENTE was THE music made for him. And eventually, he would end up killing both members of this band, and eat them, maybe calling them mummy while doing dirty things involving meat, broken records, body fluids and unheard-of orifices, most of them created for the occasion." -Scorpio Violente.

Artist: SKY NEEDLE
Title: Debased Shapes
Format: LP
Label: Bruit Direct
Country: France
Price: $21.00
"The second full length LP "Debased Shapes" by Australian band Sky Needle performing hypnotic, messed up, unmistakable / mistaken music using an array of invented and homemade instruments." - Bruit Direct Disques.
SOLD OUT

Artist: THIGH MASTER
Title: Early Times
Format: LP
Label: Bruit Direct
Country: France
Price: $25.00
"Thigh Master have been mainstays of Brisbanes thriving underground guitar scene for years now, building up a formidable reputation for both their fierce live shows and their early recorded output. Their first two singles Head Of The Witch (2014) and Songs To Wipe Your Mouth To (2015) both sold out their initial runs after charming fans both in Australia and abroad with their urgent and catchy tales of inner-city malaise. They have already played with Guitar Wolf, The Coathangers, Ty Segall, Ariel Pink, The Clean, Real Estate and Courtney Barnett. Early Times, their debut LP, was recorded and mixed by Blank Realm guitarist, Luke Walsh. Once more Matthew Ford and company turn this introspection and angst into high art, with another infectious offering which is sure to turn heads in all the right places. RIYL: Kitchens Floor, Buzzcocks, Blank Realm." - Bruit Direct. "I havent been excited about guitar pop like this in a while, transporting a presence of Polvo/Archers-style string bend, plus huge riff from some 8000 miles away, familiar but still vital, and given exuberant, shook-up life." -Doug Mosurock, Still-Single.

Artist: WONDERFULS
Title: Only Shadows Now
Format: LP
Label: Bruit Direct
Country: France
Price: $28.00
"Robert Vagg (Meat Thump, Kitchens Floor) delivers ten confessionals that drift around tragedies, hopelessness, failed systems, nonconformity, and physical/psychological experiences. Set to the minimalist sparse compositions of Dan McGirr and Natasha Buchanan, whose guitar and synthesizer lines entwine around the bleak lyrics and help paint Roberts world of despair and loneliness. Only more downer, time hasnt healed the wounds, theyve only become deeper. The Durutti Column meets Lou Reeds Berlin on this Australian bands second LP, far from their shambolic debut single on Negative Guest List." - Bruit Direct.
