Artist: BAD DRUGS
Title: Raw Powder
Format: LP
Label: Rotted Tooth
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"Permanent had the opportunity to put Raw Powder out on wax and squandered it. Well never forgive ourselves. BAD DRUGS is one of Chicagos absolute best noise rock bands, not just of now, of all time. And with the storied history of noisy rock bands formed by the oppressive nature of the Windy City, thats saying something. Raw Powder. Its an absolutely punishing, brutal, and gnarly noise rock record through and through. Other bands in the genre sometimes hide their lack of ability behind noise, which is fine and dandy cuz were all about non-musicians making a racket, but this is NOT the case with Bad Drugs. Each of these dudes is totally adept at their respective instruments. So adept that even the thick layer of noise that resides between phrases cant mask the skill residing in these dudes skulls. Each and every single goddamn one of these songs R-I-P. Oh yeah, and the vinyl totally glows in the dark. Each side ends in an obnoxious locked groove. The art is fucking amazing, just like the rest of the Rotted Tooth releases. And its limited to 300 hand-numbered copies. And YOU SHOULD BUY IT to avoid a life of in regret like us Permanent idiots (for not putting this record out ourselves)." -Rotted Tooth

Artist: BUTCHER COVER
Title: S/T
Format: LP
Label: Rotted Tooth
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"Oakland has a sordid history of violence, high unemployment, and widespread poverty, and none of these atrocities approach the level of negativity emanating from BUTCHER COVERs lair. Even the nearby San Andreas Fault cant claim to have caused more intense earth movement than the latest recordings by Oaklands premier noise-punk band, Butcher Cover. This brutal trio has been making shit-fi, KBD-influenced, noise rock for just over a year now, just long enough for the band to document their intensity properly within the mutant grooves of their debut 12incher on Rotted Tooth Records. Although Butcher Cover would fit in nicely on a basement show bill with underground nihilists like Puffy Areolas, Twin Stumps, and/or Rusted Shut, the band is essentially peerless. Nobody blends this set of obscure influences like these derelicts. Theyre bound to offend as many people as the Beatles did with their "butcher cover". This record is limited to 245 hand-numbered copies on swine blood red wax and each jacket has been hand screened by one MR. KYLE REYNOLDS (Cacaw, Heavy Times, Bad Drugs), which means you should probably handle your copy with rubber gloves - but trust us, youre gonna wanna handle one of these before they disappear into the tar pits of collector frenzy." -Permanent Records
SOLD OUT

Artist: CAVE
Title: Summer Flexi Series
Format: 7"
Label: Rotted Tooth
Country: USA
Price: $6.00
"CAVE doesnt waste any time. Four bars into this nameless cut and theyre all locked into the groove. The groove is hypnotic, but its in the subtle changes where Cave carves out a niche for themselves. There are loads of bands out there that can hold down a groove and improvise, but very few are as in tune with each other and tight as Cave is. Cave can trick you into believing theyre freely jamming and turn on a dime without notice. Not an easy task. Cave are excellent at sleight of hand and efficient to boot. Efficient one must be when limited to the finite space allowed on a 7" flexi disc and Id venture to say that no band has succeeded more wildly in filling up a flexi with a track that seemingly only lasts a minute. Actual track time: 5:01. This autobahn-ready instrumental picks up where 2011s Neverendless left off. 500 were pressed, if youre asking. Zero will remain, if youre sleeping. No sleep til winter! Endless Summer Flexi Series!" -Lance of Permanent Records. Numbered edition of 500 copies.
SOLD OUT

Artist: EETS FEATS
Title: Ghost Slacks
Format: 7" Flexi
Label: Rotted Tooth
Country: USA
Price: $7.00
One of four installments in Rotted Tooths Summer Flexi Series. "Where the fuck did EETS FEATS come from? This shit is outta control good. Slightly surfy and fully creepy. Tejas Thrashing, Bashing, and Bumpin Eets Feats remind me of a cross between Cosmonauts and Solid Attitude. Amped up and reverbed out, but not too much. Like Baby Bears porridge, its just right. Apparently, these Austinians put out a tape and a split 7" prior to this release, which we missed (a mistake we plan to rectify quickly). If dark, surfy garage snot is whats in your hanky, then you better bet the two cuts on this mucus yellow flexi disc aint nothin to sneeze at."-Permanent Records. Limited to 250 copies on yellow flexi vinyl. 3-color screen printed jackets with artwork by Ryan Duggan of Drug Factory Press.

Artist: HEAVY TIMES
Title: Lost Dogs
Format: 7" Flexi
Label: Rotted Tooth
Country: USA
Price: $7.00
One of four installments in Rotted Tooths Summer Flexi Series. "HEAVY TIMES brings their A-game with their two flexi tracks. Lost Dogs is an upbeat windows-down, girl-on-your arm, open container summer jam if weve ever heard one. Try not to sing along with the chorus, I dare ya. The second cut, P.O. Box, is a more mischievous little critter. The opening riff runs circles around your hungover ass for a minute and casually transitioning into the catchy second part. Then back to part one, an extended part two, and a heavy outro and DONE. Wham bam thank you maam. Heavy Times at their finest."-Permanent Records. Limited to 250 copies with silkscreened jackets by Jo Dery.

Artist: MAYOR DALEY
Title: Sand Bath
Format: LP
Label: Rotted Tooth
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"Mayor Daley (the Mayor) is out, but thankfully MAYOR DALEY is still here with us. After a brief hiatus and a bassist change, the trio has returned to Rotted Tooth with an LP of epic proportions. Mayor Daley have their roots firmly planted in the Chicago art rock underground, but these players aint playin. Theyve become a forced to be reckoned with over the course of the last few years. Gonzo Chicago agrees: Something happened when EMILY ELHAJ joined Mayor Daley over a year ago, alongside KELLY MARIE CARR and PAUL ERSCHEN. They seem more focused and a little more mellow, but in a way that forces your attention and breathes its own air in the room. They let the fuzz and rhythm ooze out slowly, but eventually, undeniably, youre encompassed. These are slow, building, sonic war-cries. Ive heard the term best band in Chicago multiple times over the last year..Fans of Gaan and previous Rotted Tooth releases by Rind and Dreebs need this. Rotted Tooth pressed 300 copies. Oh yeah, and Mayor Daley is STILL one of the sexiest bands in Chicago." -Lance of Permanent Records. Limited to 300 copies with silkscreened jackets.

Artist: MLU
Title: S/T
Format: LP
Label: Rotted Tooth
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"MLU may or may not stand for MY LEFT UTERUS. If bands were forced to take names that described the way they sounded, MLU would be an acronym for MASOCHIST LOSERS UNITED. I mean that in the nicest possible way. Musical mascochists of the world, you know who you are, (the kind of folks who like to get blackout drunk and listen to Metal Machine Music at full volume late at night...alone) those are the kind of folks Im talking to, right now. Yeah, you...dude. Get off your fucking pathetic ass right now and pick up this fucking KILLER new MLU record. It will absolutely melt that mind you wasted oh so long ago. Repetitive riffs and misanthropic vibes permeate this feedback drenched, art-damaged slab of heaviness. So much so, that you may as well call the hospital right now, bud, to reserve your spot on the waiting list to see separate neck and ear specialists, cuz you cant help but bang your head full force to MLUs self-titled debut LP and by the time you finish the first side, your eardrums will be fried, just like the synapses in your brain already are. I only feel comfortable talking shit about you assholes because I consider myself one and the same. Suckers (like myself) for Twin Stumps, Rusted Shut, Homostupids, and Nihilism, have been warned."-Lance (Permanent Records). Edition of 300 colored vinyl copies packaged in hand-screened sleeves." -Rotted Tooth

Artist: OCS (THEE OH SEES)
Title: Songs About Death And Dying Vol. 3
Format: LP
Label: Rotted Tooth
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"A reissue of the third album from THEE OH SEES back when they were flying under the OCS banner. "Rotted Tooth Recordings comes to the rescue of Oh Sees fans across the globe by reissuing the third Oh Sees LP Songs About Death & Dying Vol. 3-from the folky, lo-fi days when it was just JOHN DWYER & sometimes PATRICK MULLINS when they went under the moniker OCS. This is essentially the studio recordings of some of the material that ended up on the Captcha live release Hounds Of Foggy Notion-great, GREAT tunes like Second Date, If I Had A Reason & I Am Slow that pull from Dwyers love of loner Americana folk & blues as well as more experimental electro-acoustic music."-Permanent. Limited numbered pressing of 700 copies on white vinyl. Packaged in 2-color silkscreened jackets with inserts." -Rotted Tooth
SOLD OUT

Artist: SEWN LEATHER
Title: Summer Flexi Series
Format: 7" Flexi
Label: Rotted Tooth
Country: USA
Price: $6.00
"On his Summer Flexi, GRIFFIN PYN (aka SEWN LEATHER) declares war! He sounds pretty fuckin serious too. He aint rappin on "Unclear War", but this is some of the gnarliest booty shakin hardcore Ive heard since the first Death Grips LP. Post-industrial juke core, anyone? Anyone! Pyn drops the mic for the second cut in favor of sampling / chopping / screwing / etc. Subsonic throb, synth blasts, noise fuckery, and delayed beyond recognition samples comprise 120 lessons in Strinth. I dont know shit about The Nation Of Gods and Earths Book of Knowledge, but thanks to one of the barely audible samples, I now know that A set of 120 shouldnt be online...You need an enlightener to teach you 120 lessons...Thats a fact! WTF? Maybe Griffin is our enlightener. Thanks to a quick Wiki search, I also found out that the Nation of Gods and Earths (aka Five Percenters) coined the terms sup, G? (originally G means God, not gangsta), Word is bond, Break it down, and droppin science. Damn. Hows that for a weird history lesson? I can get down with that kind of language and, furthermore, I can get down with anybody who samples Five Percenters from Youtube. BTW, SICK artwork by Eighty-five Percenter OTTO SPLOTCH, Sewn Leather is droppin science. Are you picking it up? I am." -Lance, Permanent Records. Numbered edition of 250 copies.

Artist: SHAVED WOMEN
Title: s/t
Format: 12"
Label: Rotted Tooth
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"Greatness of this caliber hasnt come out of Saint Louis since the late great Drunks With Guns! SHAVED WOMENs debut 12" is a pretty brutal piece of wax, with equal parts 80s hardcore and pigfuck noise rock. This eponymous piece of powerful brilliance mixes Black Flag-esque choruses and tough-as-nails AmRep-y verses, bridges, and breakdowns seamlessly. Just imagine what Black Flag wouldve sounded like in the early-90s, if they ditched Henry and hooked up with a fictional emphysema-riddled Keith Morris instead. Sounds pretty righteous, huh? Not as righteous as this record will once it hits your turntable. Its a 12" EP full of no-nonsense punk fucking rock that reminiscent of a seemless mix of Francis Harold and the Holograms and Pissed Jeans. This record feels like a mutant monster truck going In The Red. A fist-pumping, melodic, instantly memorable, hooky record with 7 full-on shout-alongs to pass down to posterity. Its fucking relentless, is what it is and it sounds way more like a crew of hairy-ass fat dudes than a shaved women, but Shaved Women is an awesome band name, isnt it? I digress, those with a little less testosterone under the hood, will be stoked to hear that the last cut on side A, Same In The End, has a killer mid-tempo, groovy, downer vibe that out-weirds most weird punks going all the way back to when punk first started getting weird and the band is tighter than a pair of the tightest skinny jeans. In fact, this author would go as far as to say that Shaved Women must bring a serious amount of mosh with them when they perform live. Furthermore, Choices contains some of the most damaged bass playing Ive heard in ages and the last cut on the underside is a fucking killer Die Kruezen cover (Think For Me). This slab is on Rotted Tooth Recordings so you know its decked out with some killer screen printed artwork."-Lance (Permanent Records). Second limited edition of 150 copies with 4-color silkscreened sleeves and insert.

Artist: SUPERSONIC PISS
Title: S/T
Format: LP
Label: Rotted Tooth
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"Rotted Tooth is still a very young label, but its one thats already established a distinct, if eclectic, aethetic. This SUPERSONIC PISS LP is a pretty precise cross-section of all things Rotted Tooth. Remnants of the snotty tude of Solid Attitude, gnarliness of Shaved Women, and intensity of Mr. Rotted Tooths own fucked up arty noise rock band Cacaw are all audible in the sound of Supersonic Piss, a Nyquil-addicted, nightmarish, GBD noise punk band from Iowa City. Amidst the grooves of this supersonic piss-colored foot-longer, the listener is treated to 10 dirty dirges of punky brewster (lower case) proportions and 2 fuckin S-I-C-K Teenage Jesus covers, jerk. Apparently, Iowa City is the new Providence and this is THE sound of the alcoholic baby boomer moms and dads grown-up offspring. Fronted by a female named PAIGE thats got more balls than most dudes. Scummy statisticians will be happy to hear that theres only 255 hand-numbered, hand-screened copies of this record. If you dont dig it, you can eat a bag of dicks."-Permanent Records. "Edition of 255 copies on piss yellow vinyl. Packaged in 3-color silkscreened sleeves." - Rotted Tooth.

Artist: UNMANNED SHIP
Title: For Whom The Bowl Tolls
Format: LP
Label: Rotted Tooth
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"UNMANNED SHIP are active stoners. The difference between active stoners and lazy stoners is obvious. The active ones do cool shit while theyre baked and the lazy ones do lame shit. Unmanned Ship stay busy as bees in Chicago. One of the rad things the Unmanned Ship dudes do is make fucking killer instrumental rock jams. The three of em concoct quite a hypnotic brew. Its the kind of bubbly, dark, sweet porter I bee nectar fermenting into at the end of summer under less honey-friendly conditions. Coincidentally, their brand of stoner rock has the geometric and psychedelic qualities of a honeycomb. These grooves are repetitive and techincial, but never too flashy and by no means boring. A grounded rhythm section is nicely complemented by hydrodynamic guitar lines and extraterrestrial effects. Not exactly what Id deem space rock, but a bit arthropodic to be sure. In fact, this whole record would score an Apoidean documentary quite nicely. With the majority of the footage shot within the hive and featuring a substantial amount of bee carnage of course, this would make the PERFECT soundtrack to a Planet Earth chapter on bee fights. Id buy that for a dollar! This hyper limited, hand-screened, hand-numbered LP full of heavy, buzzing, intoxicating rock is HIGH-ly recommended for stoned drones. The Queen would never approve, but fuck that bitch-shes fucking all of us." -Lance Barresi (Permanent Records) Limited to 300 copies with silkscreened jackets.

Artist: WUME
Title: Distance
Format: LP
Label: Rotted Tooth
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"AL (ALBERT SCHATZ) from BIRD NAMES and Wham City artist APRIL CAMLIN used to be called ALTERED STATES, then they were called WUMME (presumably named after German city where Faust formed), and now theyve dropped an m and theyre simple called WUME (prounounced woom). Regardless of what theyre calling themselves these days, Wume are currently making some of the most tasteful (read: not cheesy) music under the mutant new age music umbrella. Bits of Wumes debut LP couldve scored 2001: A Space Odyssey, or more contemporaneously, Moon perfectly! The influence of synth maestros and Krautrock legends like Cluster, Brian Eno, Popol Vuh, Klaus Schulze and Tangerine Dream is very apparent, but Wume have taken these influences and combined them with what can only be described as a Goblin / John Carptenter-esque cinematic quality that puts them in a league of their own. Distance may be a document of new, new age music, but it aint no drone record. Wume wisely chose to keep the motorik beat. If Simeon from Silver Apples had been slipped more Benzos, Contact may have sounded a lot more like Distance. Eash listen definitely makes the heart grow fonder. Edition of 200 copies."
