Sugar Stems – Only Come Out At Night Out July 22nd! First 140 On Clear Vinyl!

The Estranged – s/t LP out NOW!


The Estranged return with their 3rd (4th, if you count the singles comp LP) album for Dirtnap.

 Continuing in The Estranged’s tradition of mutating and evolving with each subsequent release, the new album is an epic, sprawling masterpiece of tense, ominous angst-ridden postpunk.

 They’ve heavily toned down both the Wipers influence of the 1st album and the blatant death-rock vibe of the 2nd. Instead,  this one finds the band establishing a streamlined, punchier sound that both rocks a little harder than the last album, while retaining some of the textured soundscape feel which fans of that record have come to expect.

 The influences on their newest album range from the Cure to Echo & the Bunnymen to The Troggs to The Chameleons. Lyrically, they have more of an ambiguous angst ridden approach, musically showing the bands continued maturity in their song writing and recording process.

 The first pressing of 1000 LPs are packaged in ultra-heavy “tip-on” style jacket and inner sleeves. Subsequent pressings will come in regular jacket/sleeves. All copies come with a coupon for a 320 kps Mp3 download.

NYC Showcase = Success!


Dirtnap Records NYC Showcase was awesome! Legendary Wings, Steve Adamyk Band, Something Fierce and Sonic Avenues all totally killed it! Thanks to all the bands, of course, plus Kris Cheppaikode and Niyati Shah for filming, and extra thanks to Andrew Bodes and the rest of the staff at Cake Shop for hosting and for being our favorite venue in New York! And for naming a drink after us.
