Artist: AA
Title: Essential Entertainment
Format: 7"
Label: Softspot
Country: USA
Price: $7.50
"A limited reissue of the Essential Entertainment EP by Belgian band AA. Originally released in 1981 by Sexy Robot Records and limited to 900 copies, Essential Entertainment is an unrecognized gem of the early post-punk era. A unique and compelling sense of restless dread and frustration emanates from their stuttering grooves, spiky guitar arpeggios, and disturbed mutter-to-shout vocals. The music is clearly inspired by its peers: Joy Division, the Fall, and label mates the Cultural Decay. Essential Entertainment was AAs first and only release. Softspot will be releasing a limited pressing of 500 copies." - Softspot.

Artist: KEBAB
Title: We Live In A System
Format: LP
Label: Softspot
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"SoftSpot has delved back into the post-punk archives and unearthed another virtually unheard gem. Our first full-length LP features the recordings of Kebab, a short-lived quartet of punk-minded Belgian youths. Inspired by the Crass Records DIY mentality, the burgeoning UK art-punk scene, and their own boredom, Kebab combined anti-political punk diatribes with sharp guitars, plodding basslines, synth gurgles, and spastic electronic percussion. The result is an aggressively sparse take on post-punk that remains fresh and visceral sounding today. Side A compiles all their known studio recordings, including the sought-after "Life Its a Joke" 7" from 1982. Side B features select tracks from their original demo tape, recorded in 1981 and limited to only 30 copies. All tracks have been remastered from the best available sources, and are presented on black vinyl in a full-size poster package containing lyric sheet, rare photos, and a vintage interview with the band." - Softspot. Highly Recommended!

Artist: SEDIMENT CLUB
Title: EP
Format: 7"
Label: Softspot
Country: USA
Price: $5.50
"The Sediment Club are a 4-piece No Wave group from New York. Their debut EP puts a modern and youthful spin on familiar post-punk tropes, bringing to mind the deranged and bizarrely catchy innovations of the Contortions and early Pere Ubu. Four songs filled with existential ranting, squirrel-y atonal guitars, and spastic keyboard stabbing atop hypnotic bass lines and propulsive drums. Recorded at N.Y. Hed Studios by Ivan Julian. Limited to 500 hand-numbered copies." - Softspot. Excellent new 7" by four 17-18 year old NYC kids, whos live set includes covers of the Residents and Rocket From The Tombs. Produced and mastered by Ivan Julian of the Voidoids, the father of singer/guitarist Austin (his mother being Cynthia Sley of the Bush Tetras). Highly recommended!

Artist: SEDIMENT CLUB
Title: Time, Decay, Now
Format: LP
Label: Softspot
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"Softspot music is excited to announce the release of The Sediment Clubs debut LP, Time Decay Now. The follow up to the bands self-titled 7" EP release, TDN carries over the bands signature deranged guitars, backward bass lines, herky-jerk-keys, and propulsive drums on this full length. The bands sonic palette expands slightly due to the inclusion of vocals from now-departed keyboardist Amina Oliveros, but on the whole, this is the same Sediment Club we introduced you to last year, now showing all sides of their multi-faceted, energetic attack on music. This is deceptively aggressive, nuanced, nu-no-wave. Pressing of 500. Vinyl includes digital download, and 1 of 3 screen printed cards. Cover artwork by guitarist/vocalist Austin Julian. Produced and mastered by Ivan Julian." - Softspot.

Artist: SYSTEM, THE
Title: The Box
Format: 7"
Label: Softspot
Country: USA
Price: $6.00
"The brainchild of Angelo Perrotti, the System recorded their first and only single "The Box" b/w "The Weekend" for Piss Records in 1980. Brothers Angelo and Remo Perrotti (AA), along with Richard Steegmans, Erik Slegers, and Eddy Gabriel (AA) got together in a small recording studio in Diest, the same studio Remo and Eddy would go on to record the Essential Entertainment EP one year later. Like many bands of the time and region, the Systems story is a fleeting one. "The Box" b/w "The Weekend" is comprised of two flamboyant, 60s pop inspired songs. Softspot is proud to revive this forgotten 7" single. Black vinyl packaged with its original artwork." - Softspot.
