They start shipping August 31st 2018 and can be PRE-ORDERED HERE.
NO STATIK - Mysterious To Ourselves LP w/download (LUNGS-111)
The tumultuous and ever intense NO STATIK are back with 8 furious hardcore tracks and 3 deconstructed soundscapes dealing with the anxiety of feeling incomplete, forward movement and total chaos. We as people are never complete. Even when we die there are parts of ourselves and our lives that are left less refined that we would prefer. Sometimes we don't know where we are going or what the fuck is happening to us but every once in a while there are little indicators or even outside forces helping us to grow and to move along to the next stage.
Life is ugly, sparse and bold. Let this LP be an indicator for you. A navigation point to help get through the mess and offer a sense of possible order and hope for the future.
300 copies on 150gr black vinyl housed in a 24pt reverse board jacket with hand made test films attached. Download included. Recorded, mixed and mastered by Greg Wilkinson. Art by Laíza Ferreira.
GELD - Soft Power 7" w/download (LUNGS-124)
A nasty followup EP to the Perfect Texture LP released earlier this year finds GELD in a more irascible and unhinged state. Soft Power expands on the band's vision of a freer form of D-Beat with noisier sounds, tighter dimensions, wilder visions and subtler experimentation with carefully placed nuances. Don't be tricked into thinking this is some sort of hippy dippy jamband bullshit though, every second of this is cruelly calculated and executed with the utmost care. Damn.
250 black and 150 translucent orange 75gr vinyl copies housed in a custom ILR 80# felt weave glued pocket sleeve with insert and download code included. Recorded by Billy Gardener and Julian Cue. Art by Sam McKenzie.
Out in UK/Europe on the superb Static Shock Record label.
Represses of GELD - Perfect Texture LP and PHYSIQUE - Punk Life Is Shit LP will be shipping out with these too. Go get 'em!
Thanks for looking. -ILR

May 26th will be a benefit for New Whoreizons which is an emergency fund for full service sex workers impacted by FOSTA. They pay bills, pay for medicine, food, anything directly related to survival for sex workers.
Both gigs should be positively fueled but rowdy affairs. Don't be squeamish, you're definitely invited if you are not a piece of shit.
PRE-ORDER the S.H.I.T. LP HERE S.H.I.T. - What Do You Stand For? LP w/download (LUNGS-120) Well? releases June 1, 2018 Also available in Europe through La Vida Es Un Mus.
PRE-ORDER the FRKSE 7" HERE FRKSE - Denigration Rapture 7" (LUNGS-116) A masterful amalgamation of sinister tape loops and unsettling industrial clangs makes 'Denigration Rapture' a hypnotic conflagration replete with pulsing Kraut drones, sampled vocal/musical textures and crunchy power electronics. You can feel the unnatural barbs of the dark forces sinking in while they slowly lull you down to depths and hold you there forever. Drown in this glory. Like the other singles in series 3, there are 300 copies on black vinyl with hand stamped labels housed in a hand stamped j-card sleeve. A one-time pressing. releases May 25, 2018
PRE-ORDER the BACZKOWSKI/PADMANABHA 7" HERE BACZKOWSKI / PADMANABHA - Mastoid Process 7" (LUNGS-119) "Since John Coltrane and Rashied Ali created "Interstellar Space" with only sax and percussion, opening through this limited line-up new realms of expression, often raw, hard, yet incredibly direct and open, many have seen the opportunities it offered and followed their example. Playing in a trio format is for many already a tough task, but relinquishing the typical role of the bass as melodic and rhythmic anchor point, offers a total freedom of interaction, but it's like poetry without rhyme, there is no comfort zone to fall back into, no safe haven, no safety net, it's swim or drown. Without technical mastery, creativity and close listening skills, it's hard to create anything meaningful at all." -freejazzblog.org Steve and Ravi are indeed true masters of the hive minded sonic attack. Swirling madness and whispered genius. I've seen it live and I can attest, it is incredible. Like the other singles in series 3, there are 300 copies on black vinyl with hand stamped labels housed in a hand stamped j-card sleeve. A one-time pressing. releases May 25, 2018
