The Fall Mansion
This Nation's Saving Grace Beggars Banquet 1985
Hello again or
Cloakroom Lost Meaning N
Dissolution Wave Relapse Records 2022
Opening cut to the newest LP from the Northwest Indiana shoegaze inspired trio. A concept album of sorts (when incorporating the insert/cover/back) focused on a future wiped out from a tragic physics accident.
My Bloody Valentine Only Tomorrow
m b v Domino Recording Co 2013
Following an over two decade hiatus, shoegaze legends My Bloody Valentine released their third studio LP in 2013, though Kevin Shields had been working on initial compositions that would make up most of this release since 2006. Much mellower sound than previous recordings.
Boris The Fallen N
W Sacred Bones Records 2022
Latest 27th release (or so) from the experimental Japanese noise rock legends. Much more contemplative side of the band, the work itself a reflection on the state of the world making its way through this pandemic.
Creative Adult Control My Eyes
Psychic Mess Run For Cover Records 2014
From Northern California, Creative Adult delivered a vlast of Sonic Youth inspired noisy post-punk on this LP, produced by Efrim Menuck of Godspeed You! Black Emperor.
Sonic Youth 100%
Dirty Geffen 2015
Speak of the devil...
Nicfit Human Inane N
Fuse Upset The Rhythm 2022
Debut LP from this Japanese art-punk band. Nicfit has been active for close to a decade but didn't release its first LP until early 2022!
Flood Twin Control N
Flood Twin Flood Twin 2021
Debut LP from this Atlanta-based post-punk trio, drawing from such 80s post-punk influences as Gang of Four, Public Image Ltd., Wire, and Killing Joke. My sleeper record of 2021. Highly recommended!
The Jesus Lizard Nub
Goat (Remaster / Reissue) Touch and Go Records 2009
Influential release from this Chicago0based noise-rock band. The lyrics tell the story of a boy who stuck his hand out a school bus window and lost his arm. So don't stick your hands out of moving vehicles!
Gang of Four To Hell With Poverty
Solid Gold EMI 1981
Sophomore release the English post-punk band that probably inspired you to start a band (like The Velvet Underground did years before). Lyrics much more politically charged compared to the debut Entertainment!.
Collate Who Cares About Tradition?
Liminal Concerns Collate 2018
Debut LP from this Portland, OR, post-punk band. Its got that bouncy post-punk vibe I love so much.
Liars Mr You're On Fire Mr
They Threw Us All in a Trench and Stuck a Monument on Top Mute 2002
Debut LP from this (at the time) Boorklyn-based arty post-punk revival band. Remember that post-punk dance-punk revival that exploded in the early aughts. Wild times.
The Fall Return (SINCD8 Single)
Code: Selfish UMC (Universal Music Catalogue) 2007
14th studio LP from Mark E. Smith and company, originally released in 1992, then re-released and re-mastered with bonus cuts and extensive liner notes in 2007.
Stranded Crossed Lines N
Midnight Sun Double Phantom 2021
Solo project from Atlanta-based musician David Mansfield. Do I hear some Krautrock influence throughout?
XL Capris World War
Where Is Hank? Axle 1981
Early 80s post-punk from Australia. Song title totally not selected because of ongoing current events in Eastern Europe. I pinky swear.
Broken Baby Hand Heat N
Late Stage Optimism Poor Man Records 2021
Los Angeles based punk band Broken Baby is actress/singer Amber Bollinger and musician/producer Alex Dezen. Dezen fronted indie band The Damnwells and has written material for Justin Beiber, Robin Thicke, and others.

Pixies will be playing at the Rialto Theatre Tuesday, March 15th!
Protomartyr Machinist Man
No Passion All Technique Domino Recording Co 2019
Debut LP from this Detroit post-pun outfit, originally released in 2012. Heavily influenced by The Fall. The original LP pressing was released in limited quantities and increased in price to just over triple digits on the secondary market. Domino re-released the album in 2019. Hope you didn't buy the original at over $100!
Shame Born in Luton N
Drunk Tank Pink Dead Oceans 2021
English post-punk band. Heralded on numerous Best Of lists as another top release from 2021.
Interpol My Blue Supreme

Debut LP from this NYC synth-punk band. We've heard (and will continue to hear) cuts from thier latest Museum On the Horizon. It all started here.
Slug Guts Chrome Crucifix
Howlin' Gang Sacred Bones Records 2011
From Australia, Slug Guts rightfully pull from the jangly post-punk sound molded by Rowland S. Howard, Nick Cave, and other Birthday Party musicians.
Age of Apocalypse Grim Wisdom N
Grim Wisdom Closed Casket Activities 2022
Latest release from this NYC-based hardcore punk band.
Cherubs So Jellified

Cunning Stunts Amphetamine Reptile Records 1992
Minneapolis noise-rock band. The cover to this - the band's fifth studio LP - is their direct take on Eric Dolphy's Out to Lunch! cover, that being a great slice of avant-garde jazz.
Drain Martyr's Road
Pick Up Heaven Trance Syndicate 1992
Drain was the 90s noise-rock project of Butthole Surfers drummer King Coffey, this being Drain's debut LP.
Replicant Walk TOKUMA JAPAN COMMUNICATIONS 1988
