Slovenly to release new Missing Monuments 7" November 26th


When the legendary KINGLOUIE BANKSTON and his MISSING MONUMENTS stopped by the Slovenly USA office on a recent tour, they said they wanted to do a single for us. We replied with, “Sure! Just make sure it’s fuckin filthy.” And here ya have it, the Blast! EP, released to coincide with their new self-titled LP on Dirtnap Records. This exclusive three track monstrosity gives us the filth we were promised in the title track, and a corrosive jangle with complicated poetics on “Ghost HWY.” Doing what they do best, MISSING MONUMENTS lay down some serious power-pop skills on the B-side with “Covered In Ice” - a dirty, southern barroom swinger with all the infectiousness of the sweet, germy influences worn on their leather sleeves.

Slovenly Re-Issues The Trouble Makers



From Sacramento, CA, THE TROUBLE MAKERS combine the energy of The Makers with the pure genius of Thee Headcoats and the totally over the top R&R of The Mummies. Originally released on vinyl by Germany’s Screaming Apple Records (it’s long outta print, boy!), and compact disc by Slovenly, this new vinyl issue is finally available once again worldwide! Order it HERE.

UPCOMING DATES:

October
31 - Thursday - Antwerpen - Belgium - Kavka | W/ Natural Child

November

1 - Friday - Diksmuide - Belgium - 4AD | W/ Natural Child
2 - Saturday - Benidorm - Spain - Funtastic Dracula Carnival

The Movements release "Like Elephant 1"


The Movements, from Gothenburg, Sweden, has left the door to the garage rock half ajar behind and opened the gates to the great world of psychedelic rock. On October 25th they released Like Elephants 1.

Like Elephants 1 is a very exciting project because, as the title suggests, it is only the first disc of two (Like Elephants 2 is scheduled for release in early 2014). Working out two albums into a unique whole has been innovative, challenging and inspiring for The Movements. What is special about these two albums is that they not only stand strong individually but also create a whole, a kind of continuity, together. The Movements distance themselves from today’s fast-food consumption of songs pulled out of their context and instead dare to demand a greater commitment by the listener who, in return, gets to experience a collection of songs in their intended sequence.

Like Elephants 1 offers swirling psychedelia in Great Deceiver, catchy rock riffs with All The Lost, choral psychedelia through Like Elephants 1 and folk-rock in It Takes A Spark. The album consists of ten well-worked songs of high quality and has for the most part been recorded at Music A Matic in Gothenburg. Produced by The Movements and Michael Nilsson.

The Movements possess great stage- and songwriting skills and has over the years toured most European countries. They will be touring Sweden and Europe in support of the record.

Mondo Fuzz: Teensploitation Trashterpiece of Subterranean Sinema...or, a cool documentary about the Austin scene


MONDO FUZZ: Twilight of the Idles is a Teensploitation Trashterpiece of Subterranean Sinema that excavates current Austin, Texas underground rock. 

 Working from the philosophy that a band's essence is best captured during live performance, and inspired by such music doc classics as The Decline of Western Civilization and Urgh! A Music War, the feature-length work is structured like a concert film mixtape shot guerrilla style in the shadows of the Live Music Capitol of the World. By turning an anthropological eye on this insular subculture, the film becomes a nature documentary on guitar-thrashing teens in their natural habitat, serves as a study of the complex codes, re-purposed cult symbology, and exotic plumage of the new American mating rituals, and snaps a 2013 time capsule of a uniquely musical town before its inevitable decline into generic metropolis.
The film features select interviews and live performances by Austin garage rockers THE STRANGE BOYS, JOHN WESLEY COLEMAN, DIKES OF HOLLAND, SHAPES HAVE FANGS, THE BAD LOVERS, WOVEN BONES, NIGHT BEATS, THE GORY DETAILS, PLANET RYE CO, THE WELL, GHOST WOLVES, TIJUANA BIBLE, SEXPLOITS, TEEN-AGE CAVEGIRL and more.
