Conor Oberst with First Aid Kit & Dawes - Lua - 2014

CARDINAL SESSIONS (Haldern Pop Special)

Interpol Revisit "Turn on the Bright Lights"

Interpol - El Pintor - 2014

 Interpol once seemed like a candidate for a quick post-debut flameout. Its 2002 debut, Turn on the Bright Lights, broke through with seemingly instantaneous intensity, setting the band up for an equally ferocious second-album letdown. So many bands in its fickle New York scene were playing a variation on Interpol's sleek, stylish, darkly driving post-punk that success was bound to be difficult to sustain.
Interpol often tiptoes on the fine line separating consistency from sameness. El Pintor treads that same line, but keeps finding Interpol on its better side. Twelve years after its debut, it's a band that knows what it wants to be — and, just as importantly, knows how to get there every time.

The Dirty Nil - Cinnamon​/​Guided By Vices - 2014

Get it HERE

The Dirty Nil play rock and roll. Loud, distorted, and out of control, they play like it’s a fever they’re trying to sweat out. Reveling in the din of distorted guitars, pounding drums, and desperately howled vocals, the Hamilton Ontario three-piece makes music for turntables and hi-fi’s - music for dive bars and house parties - for beer drinking and joint smoking - for road trips and barbecues - for fighting and yelling and shouting and singing and screaming and howling - for sweating and bleeding - trying and failing and trying again anyways. Gravel-in-your guts, spit-in-your-eye, staggering, bloodthirsty rock and roll. They have two 7"s available that capture the snarl and destructive noise they create. The Dirty Nil play rock and roll - cause they couldn’t do a damn thing else if they tried.

VA - Gran Noise Family - 2014

As corporações ligadas à música sempre precisaram mistificar as coisas para manter seu mercado aquecido. E em outro extremo, não é raro ver selos alternativos com um discurso desencorajador mesmo quando supostamente tentam fomentar a produção independente. Nesse contexto, levar ao pé da letra o lema "faça você mesmo" parece um absurdo, mas não para a Transfusão Noise Records, que está completando 10 anos em 2014. Nossos 70 discos e mais de 30 bandas agregadas são reflexo da insistência em gravar dentro de casa ou em estúdios de baixo orçamento, produzir nossos próprios discos, fazer nossas próprias capas, prensar em cd, cd-r, vinil, cassete, disponibilizar tudo gratuitamente em mp3, montar banquinhas, organizar shows, silkar camisas e por aí vai. A mensagem é simples: faça canções, grave discos, não pare, monte uma gravadora e reúna seus amigos.

Gran Noise Family compila 16 faixas de discos do catálogo da Transfusão, funcionando como um best of da gravadora. O disco foi prensado na Europa e tem uma tiragem limitada de 300 cópias, sendo que as primeiras 40 cópias vêm acompanhadas de um pôster numerado a mão. Como lançamento do disco, uma série de shows especiais está prevista no Escritório (sede da Transfusão no centro do Rio) e também em algumas cidades do estado de São Paulo, como Santo André, Cachoeira Paulista e capital.

Catnaps - Forget About It - 2013

Twee pop out of Philly... Cute release.

Love is probably both the best and worst thing a person can ever feel in life. Few things, have such an inherent contradictory nature, such a mind-boggling capacity for instilling manic, transcendental joy as well bitter, burning hurt, all at the same time.

A prime example of that idea is Philadelphia-based band Catnaps. Not just because so few bands manage to musically and lyrically evoke the mercurial nature of love as perfectly as Catnaps. Also because Catnaps is a band so talented, so unique, so incredibly goddamn fantastic that it is, in my opinion, impossible not to fall utterly, hopelessly in love with it... 570 blog
