Out today on ILR: ACRYLICS - Structure 7" & RAKTA - Oculto Pelos Seres 7"

ACRYLICS - Structure 7" (LUNGS-107) 
The newest offering from Santa Rosa's finest art bangers. They've added so much to their already incredible sound with this single and it will act as just a taste of what's to come on the LP in 2018. "Structure" is a bit more on the pogo side complimented nicely with sharp echo stabs and a ruinous atmosphere. "Gluttony" brings us back to that toss-and-turn-in-a-dark-alley kind of crunchy freak junk that the teens mangle themselves to. Our favorite blend of ugly and appealing. 
A limited release for unlimited punks. 

RAKTA - Oculto Pelos Seres 7" w/ download (LUNGS-080) 
Howling winds over the barren sands sting your eyes just enough to make you question wether or not you did actually see what you think you saw. A shrouded figure casting shadows on memories of the future? A malformed Chris Marker statue sandblasted to obscurity? A beautifully melted humanity? Oculto Pelos Seres is all of those and more. By now RAKTA's signature brand of punk fueled, goth tinged, seemingly structureless yet extremely taut soundscapes should be familiar to you and if it isn't then this is a great place to start.  
150 copies on pink, 350 copies on black vinyl housed in a textured glue pocket sleeve with a vellum lyric sheet and stickers bag. Art by Chihiro Yoshikawa. Sounds by Bernardo Pacheco. Mastered by Daniel Husayn. 

Both bands are playing Not Dead Yet in Toronto this weekend followed by respective European tours. Catch them if you can. Both bands are stocked with the finest people in the world and play great music.

We also have some IRON LUNG shirts while they last and a bunch of extra distro stuff. Get it all in the ILR STORE.

Thanks a million. -Jensen
