KH009 - Snakehole
We’ve been working on KH009, a new mini EP from Snakehole for some time and we’re stoked this tape is finally available for everyone to check out!
The Miami-based all-female trio brings the sludge like no other chick band around. Blending noisy, quasi-metal riffage with vocals dirtier than your favorite riot grrrl jams, Snakehole is definitely a sonic force to be reckoned with. Check out their recent live performance on Squelch TV to see what you’re getting yrself into. For fans of all things loud, slimy and distorted.
KH009 by Snakehole is limited to 50 hand-numbered copies on C12 cassette and you can pre-order your copy here directly fromkill/hurt
You hear that kids? 50 copies = grab now or forever be disappointed. These girls sure know how to make some harsh sounds, and if you like their Squelch TV set from Dec. 7th 2011 (^^^) then this is currently their only released physical music as far as I know. Definitely getting from Bikini Kill vibes from them, mixed with something more raw and offensive. Check out this awesome interview with them explaining what Snakehole means.
Kill/hurt also has a cassette release of Tennis System’s debut Teenagers LP, but I already grabbed the vinyl so I’ll just stick with Snakehole. But whatever your preferred analog format, Teenagers is a solid debut and well worth the pickup as well.
Comprised of members of Vivian Girls, Woods and Bossy, The Babiesare releasing a new live cassette via Kill/Hurt.
Recorded by Chris + Kat of Kill/Hurt at legendary DIY venue the Smell, KH008 captures the entirety of the Babies’ set from their January 2011 visit to Los Angeles.
Live at the Smell is limited to only 100 copies, dubbed by Kill/Hurt onto a shiny blue C40 cassette and features artwork by Cali DeWitt of Teenage Teardrops
Kill/Hurt releases are never around for long at a hundi copies a run…so if you absolutely can’t live without a copy, you can grab one with the secret paypal pre-order link for mail list subscribers below.
The Babies - Live at the Smell C40 Cassette available here to pre-order.
Self-released by the band in late 2010, Max Baker’s unique and catchy brand of garage rock + surf pop is the perfect album for the end of summer — sunny and party-oriented with a little bit of cynicism and sarcasm beneath the surface. “Creature” sounds like a long-lost track from a 1960s jukebox while “Red Headed Girl” emulates the teenage pop ballads your parents listened to in high school.
All copies ofTijuana Panthers - Max Baker KH007 are dubbed onto a shiny gold C42 cassette. This release is Ltd to 50 hand-numbered copies and features a bonus track not on the digital or vinyl versions of the LP!
Grab your very own copy of the Max Baker cassette here, pro-dubbed with love. Last I saw there were about half of them left…
Been seeing this girl’s tunes tossed round the intertUbes for some time and decided I should finally stop and listen. Result: beautiful electronic bedroom pop solo dances jams for you and your favorite feline. Computer Magic has a number of free EPs for download via her interblog here, and I would say with each release her sound has matured and expanded. After these fast paced digireleases its nice to see some music in the the real world done right, with a Ltd 1000 press of Electronic Fences on white vinyl. Comes complete with “rocket-building dimension information,” of course. Grab the Ltd vinyl from insound here; I believe its on one of the staff picks lists which are usually solid snake signs. If you crave more Computer Magic why not grab a Ltd repress of OOP Get a Job on cassette; only 50 copies with 25 each of yellow and green cassettes from KILL/HURT here.
Completely unrelated note: I’ve been captivated by this blog I found called Vintage Space. If you’re into reading about some rad covert soviet cosmonaut missions from the 60’s, check it, its for real.
