Artist: LOWER
Title: Someones Got It in for Me/But There Has to Be More
Format: 7"
Label: Five Four-O
Country: USA
Price: $8.00
"On this new 7" youll find two songs that Copenhagen based rock band Lower chose to dig up from the past. These two songs flirt with a bigger sound than what youd find on the Walk on Heads EP. Both of the songs were featured on their long gone demo tape. Here they are, re-recorded in Copenhagens south end with Nis Bysted in 2012. These songs are finally revealed for a wider audience. Die-cut covers with a full color inner sleeve." -Five Four-O.

Artist: REP AND FRIENDS, MIKE
Title: Darby Creek Drifter
Format: LP
Label: Five Four-O
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"The name Mike Rep Hummel means many things to different people. Many equate Rep with 70s Proto-Punk, 80s D.I.Y. or a pioneering founder of 90s Lo-Fi (Rep prefers the term Mega-Fi himself). Along with his bands Mike Rep & The Quotas & the seminal (Ohio) True Believers, he was also a cohort in the 90s Columbus supergroup Ego Summit among a plethora of other Ohio band involvements. Also known for recording and/or mixing (Lovingly Fucking With) such bands of note as Guided By Voices, Times New Viking, Jim Shepard, The Gibson Brothers, Strapping Fields Hands, Mount Carmel and dozens of others, mostly in their formative garage/basement incarnations. I prefer deflowering to retooling. Both present worthwhile challenges but working with virgin talent wont get you an STD he once infamously said. Still others remember him for his groundbreaking Columbus Ohio homegrown label New Age Records (named before there was such a thing as New Age music) which evolved into the 80s/90s cassette pioneering signpost to new space Old Age/NO Age label through the 90s. And so the name Mike Rep Hummel has a polarizing effect on many who either admire or deride his body of work. Hummels new record Darby Creek Drifter is one that is sure to draw the line even deeper into the sand. Rep sez; As my pal Bob Pollard once quipped, this does not rock. But it rolls baby, it rolls." - Five Four-O.

Artist: SECTION URBANE
Title: The Final Program
Format: 7"
Label: Five Four-O
Country: USA
Price: $8.00
"The final release in 540 Records series of reissues from 70s Brisbane punk labels Shake Music and Savage Music is this four-song EP from Section Urbane. Having released two previous singles of quirky punk as Just Urbain, the Brisbane band continued their unique Velvets-through-the-lens-of-Joy-Division approach through the name change, harnessing a fuller, more bass-heavy sound on their final recording session. The track Id Rather Stay Home and Watch TV still has more than its fair share of the Aussie-garage stomp of bands like the Chosen Few and the Victims, but after that its all about Mo Tucker beats, dark and poetic lyrics delivered with a distinctly Lou Reed-influenced drawl, and heavy, melodic Peter Hook-style bass lines. If you want to hear first-gen-DIY naiveté, post-punk artistic ambition and the party-hearty sensibility of the original Murder Punk bands clash together into something wholly unique, get this on your turntable right away. 600 copies with pretty purple dust sleeves." - Five Four-O.

Artist: SURVIVE
Title: Survive
Format: LP
Label: Five Four-O
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"Finally, the homecoming has arrived for the 2012 debut LP from Austin-based electronic quartet S U R V I V E. With a new U.S. vinyl reissue bringing life back to this modern classic, the bands full spectrum of instrumental synthesizer composition is now available on LP domestically for the first time. After an extensive and rare catalog including 12", 10", and 7" EPs as well as several B-side tapes, the bands debut full-length remains their most ambitious and defining effort, marking the culmination of several years spent recording, honing, and crafting a remarkably intricate balance of songwriting and experimentation. S U R V I V Es dedicated and comprehensive approach to sonic arrangement is the result of the bands uncompromising standards of quality spread across hundreds of hours in the bands own Omniverse Studios integrating a vast collection of both antique and modern synthesizers. Every element has been meticulously designed and microscopically placed to fulfill its macroscopic purpose, ensuring that every audible wave has been exhaustively scrutinized, dissected, and modulated before being allowed to join the mix. This rigorous process of sound design and discretion is reflected on all levels of the album, resulting in a masterfully accomplished and thorough work. Originally released in May 2012 on Berlin-based Mannequin Records, S U R V I V Es highly anticipated premiere full-length keeps the middle path between reserved minimalism and gorgeously lucid melodic structures." - Five Four-O.
