Marshall Teller / Halftime Parade - split 7" £2.50 - finally! seems like this one has been a long time coming, but i got it at last, and i hope you'll find it worth the wait. halftime parade crank out a haphazard, upbeat, punky indie rocker. an utter blast of jawbreaker meets superchunk kind of stuff with great, ragged vocals. marshall teller contrast on the other side with gruff vocalled misery in the broccoli vein. their most emo effort to date, so good! LAST ZILLION COPIES.

Perfect Future - s/t : cd £4.00 : debut release from this 3 piece, playing a mix up of downbeat miserable emo that explodes from sombre twinkles into noisier hardcore. a bit kolya, a bit 400 years, the vocals are sung, talked and shouted by turns. really stoked with how this one turned out.

Old Growth / 12XU - split 7" £3.00 : RESTOCK : french dudes 12xu are one of the best new bands around right now and they need to do an lp in a hurry. this stuff is melodic and driving with perhaps more of a post punk / indie rock thing than the more emo stuff i have heard by these guys, but the vocals are superb. old growth are back and the first song sounds different. less straight forward, more like drive like jehu and tubers. the second is more like what i was exepcting.
