New Stuff!

April 21, 2011

Heyo! I’m a little drunk. So what if it’s only 6:30!? There’s some awesome stuff that you should know about.

First off, Cattle Drums has their Boy Kisser Sessions + 3 up for free download. If you don’t have this already, I highly suggest picking it up. I hype this band a lot, but only because I think they’re really great.

Download.

Second, Big Kids has posted 4 new songs from their upcoming full length “Phone Home”. They are all up for free download, and they all fuckin’ rock. According to my count, this band will have released 2 full lengths, 2 splits, and one EP, all in the same year. That’s pretty impressive. Support this band in any way you can. They are the nicest dudes ever.

Bandcamp. (Where you can download all 4 songs)

We’ve decided to post the Lautrec Discography. I’m not sure why we’ve been sitting on these tracks for so long, but I’m pretty sure we’ve never actually posted the whole thing. So, here you go. Enjoy it. Pick up the the tape if you feel like it.

Download.

Buy It.

Lastly, we should have lots of new stuff added to the distro in the next few weeks. We’ve got lots of records to trade, so if you feel like picking up any of our stuff in return for your awesome releases, please email us at blackwithsaprecords@gmail.com

Love,

Caught these dudes with Algernon Cadwallader and Big Kids in Portland back in January. Personally, they reminded me of Tigers Jaw crossed with Against Me! Pretty good live show, to boot. I guess this band is now a combination of original members of Lee Corey Oswald and the band Business Day. I’m not sure. Also, the vocalist of this band is in Carrion Spring, who did a 8″ split withTe Lloraría Un Puto Río, The Discord Of A Forgotten Sketch, and Beau Navire last year. Cool. Tom May of Menzingers sums this band up much better than I could:

“Jovi meets Slayer meets Natalie Merchant! Wait, that’s not right. Bolsheviks meets Orwellian Socialism meets post-civil war reconstruction era lingering racism! Wait, that’s definitely not right. Apparently I’m terrible at comparing existing artists as a means to describe Lee Corey Oswald. That’s a good thing. The boys swap genres like partners at an end of the world orgy. Punk rock, folk, indie rock, and rock and roll all meet up for a humble yet humbling experience when you grant your ears and eyes the privilege of their experience. Lyrically the boys (Gods, really) seem to have found a pinpoint way of telling the stories and sharing the feelings of our modern, overly informed while under-informed, seemingly lost generation. As we stumble our way through the darkest regions of overbearing consumerism and moral ambiguity, it’s voices like these that vocalize the poignant truths we all feel but lose when we try to project them. I mean all that, it totally sounds like a bunch of douchy garbage, but fuck it, they are great. Their harmonies are great, the songs are there, and they’re pretty good looking too. Oh yeah, beer. They’re a haven for drinking fans with a music problem.”

I can’t stop listening to “These Four Walls.” Definitely reminiscent of earlier Against Me! Check that one out for sure.

Check out these downloads from their bandcamp page (set your own price!) and order their new cassette, Let’s Talk About Awesome Feelings. I did.
