The Estranged – The Subliminal Man LP/CD


Dirtnap Records is proud to bring you the 2nd album from Portland dark-punk kings!

Past and present members of Portland hardcore mainstays such as Remains Of The Day, Hellshock, Warcry, Lebenden Toten, etc pull a 180 and dish out ten tracks of icy, ominous postpunk.

Since their last release, The Estranged have dialed back the explicit aggression of their early singles a bit, and dialed up the textured, atmospheric, layered sounds of prime 80s deathrock/postpunk. A little less US influence, a little more UK………A little less Wipers, a little more Cure/Chameleons UK/Joy Division, etc. ……….

The Subliminal Man was painstakingly, impeccably recorded at Type Foundry Studios in Portland and features 8 new ones, a re-recording of “Statue In A Room” (originally released as a split 7″ with Autistic Youth) and a rather stunning cover of The Flys’ 1978 classic “Love And A Molotov Cocktail”. You need this. All LPs come with download coupon. FIRST 200 ON RED VINYL, AVAILABLE VIA MAILORDER-ONLY EXCLUSIVELY AT WWW.GREENNOISERECORDS.COM!

Think Bauhaus or Sisters Of Mercy, but by dyed-in-the-wool punks shorn of spookiness and frilly-edged shirts. Artful pretense is replaced by hard-edged instruments and scuffed boots.” – Razorcake

Beautifully depressing songs that are probably at this minute mimicking the equally miserable Portland weather. Brilliant.” – Maximum Rock N Roll

Autistic Youth – Idle Minds LP


Long awaited 2nd album from hardworking PDX youngsters, following up their classic “Landmine Beach” LP, as well as singles on Black Water, Rock Bottom, Taken By Surprise, and more.

Driving, melodic punk/hardcore (but NOT “melodic hardcore” if ya get the distinction) with dark, swirling undercurrents. Catcy but not at all vapid. Sounding like a cross between Portland, Southern California, and Copenhagen, you could compare this to bands like Observers/Red Dons, No Hope For The Kids, Articles Of Faith, Reagan Youth, The Wipers, Adolecscents, etc etc.

We’ve wanted to do something with these guys forever, and while the recording process took longer than normal, but we think it was well worth the wait. Co-release with Dirtnap/Black Water in the US and Taken By Surprise/Sabotage in Europe. All copies come with download code.
