Get 'em while they're hot.

PRIVATE ROOM - Forever And Ever LP w/ download (LUNGS-084)
  Forever and Ever, the debut album from Pacific Northwest power-trio PRIVATE ROOM, is a terse and tense record. With its discordantly bent notes, shots of industrial clang, atonal noise washouts, and boneheaded punk, the album cultivates a forbidding atmosphere for the sardonic lyrics to comfortably reside. With stunning album art provided by Justin Gallego (DREAMDECAY),  the stark future-vision of PRIVATE ROOM is immediately apparent. Although a charred cynicism colors Forever and Ever,  the music itself elbows at the boundaries of whatever genre - punk, hardcore, noise-rock, or any micro-niche thereof -one might apply to it. It suggests that patterns, be they imposed from above or within, are binds to be broken. 

   Do any of these apply to you? 
•Constant irritability
•Significantly reduced interest or feeling no pleasure in all or most activities
•Significant weight loss when not dieting, weight gain, or decrease or increase in appetite
•Insomnia or increased desire to sleep
•Fatigue or loss of energy
•Feelings of worthlessness, or excessive or inappropriate guilt
•Trouble making decisions, or trouble thinking or concentrating
•Recurrent thoughts of death or suicide, or a suicide attempt
 If so, you are listening to the right record.

We put a big stack of cool ILR related things in the store too. 
Shop for them in the STORE STORE STORE

Have a pleasant day. If you're in Toronto this weekend come say hi. We will be there playing drums and hocking wares and being awake way too long for our own goodsssssssssssssssgoodnight.

LACE is a band we like.

Looks like we are going to be doing an LP for Houston's LACE in the not too distant future. Writing has begun. Until then, enjoy their demo (coming soon to the ILR shop). Favorite track on this is 'Poison Drum' - you gotta love that Reggaeton beat!
