Artist: AFCGT
Title: S/T
Format: LP + 7
Label: Sub Pop
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"Drooling Hillbilly Metal, Sea Urchin Psychedelia, Yukon Freak Thrash, and Beatnik Swamp Drone are musical genres, like dozens of others, which are in the infancy of their developments. Yet someone has finally harnessed the inside track to claiming a few of these elusive styles as their own creations. AFCGT is a rather convenient vernacular for A Frames and Climax Golden Twins but if youre hopeful that the usual sources are stocked with facts and figures about this outfit, think again. Theres not much information available on AFCGT. The cretinous calliope that is AFCGT descends from a decrepit longhouse on the shores of a dark lake where the self-inflicted wounds from a windy forest of flailing, whipping branches gave birth to the white heat oddities from this their self-titled new album on Sub Pop Records. Conjoined a little over two years ago, the group has already been dishing out vinyl; recording a 10-inch EP, a full-length LP, and appearing on a 7-inch compilation not to mention a few super-limited CDRs thrown in for kicks. With 3 electric guitars, a bass guitar, and a drum kit they manage to emulate the decaying soundtrack of an international airport with all the trimmings; accidental runway collisions, air traffic control extremism, unauthorized handling of cargo, and bitching passengers at checkpoint screenings. Both the LP and 7" are on white vinyl." - Sub Pop.

Artist: COMETS ON FIRE
Title: Avatar
Format: LP
Label: Sub Pop
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"After 2004s critically acclaimed Blue Cathedral, one might have expected Comets on Fire to blast off into the cosmos in an infinite flurry of lysergic spasmodicism. Surprising, then, that they should turn in an earthy, more accessible and downright beautiful album as their follow-up. Then again, it is a completely logical progression, but in reverse, sort of. On Avatar their astonishing new album, Comets display development in every direction: as musicians, as songwriters, as arrangers and as singers (?!), without sacrificing one ounce of the intensity that is expected from our heroes. As on Blue Cathedral, the diversity of the material is staggering. Avatar veers from swinging, bluesy explorations to piano-laced, progressive power balladry, to pure tribalism, evoking everyone from the Allmans, to Quicksilver, to Procol Harum, to some insane Fela/Sun Ra/Crazy Horse hybrid, yet remains wholly Comets on Fire. Though they play cleaner and clearer, their firepower is evident and abundant. They have shifted gears and opened themselves up completely. You should do the same." - Sub Pop.

Artist: YONKERS, MICHAEL
Title: Microminiature Love
Format: CD
Label: Sub Pop
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"Originally recorded in 1968 and slated for release on Sire Records, Microminiature Love languished unreleased until unearthed and released in a limited pressing on vinyl only by Destijl Records last year. Our friends at Aquarius Records had the following to say about the vinyl release : �??An obscure late-sixties ahead-of-his-time visionary gets his due with this LP reissue. Yonkers stuff was like nothing anyone had heard back then (or even now really): fucked-up garage psych with demedntedly genius lyrics and crazy acid-friend guitar. Yonkers, a legendary Minneapolis �?? area figure, built his own effects pedals, cut his Fender Telecaster down to a plank, and playedlinke no one else ever. Im at a loss of words on how to describe this. Its sort of like a fusion of stripped down Black Sabbath, The Troggs, Pere Ubu, and The Cramps??�?� This CD reissue will include six bonus tracks not found on the LP." - Sub Pop.
