engrossed by shades So intense. So authentic. So emotional. So good. I am so glad to got to know this band. Favorite track: Three Halloweens.
A.T.L thumbnail
A.T.L Intense, emotional post-hardcore in the same vein as Xerxes or Touché Amoré. Really impressive stuff all the way through. Favorite track: Rec Room.

voidcalledwendy It's one of those albums, that will get you focused on another song every time you listen to it. First I thought "Birdhouse" might be my favourite track and now I am pretty sure it is "This Year". I am also 100% sure that tomorrow another song will be accompanying my heart. Basically what I'm trying to say is, one can listen to the whole album every day without getting tired of it, because every song has it's own mood that it is transporting. Absolutely fine album! Favorite track: This Year.

gwen power one of the early standout releases of the emo genre for 2018, and one that has been criminally underrated since release. closer's sound is expansive and complex, especially for a three-piece (which usually have a more minimalistic approach). this'll be on my end of the year list. Favorite track: Dust.

Euan Murphy This album slays! One of the most essential post hardcore releases from the last decade. <3

    Final copies of this pressing of our first album! Each LP comes with a silkscreened lyric sheet / art print for either dust or birdhouse. I forget when or why we made these but they are cool and we still have a couple! Once these are sold out they are finally actually gone for good. Non-North America folks should buy the EU/UK release!

    *Pay $30 if you want to throw in a copy of Within One Stem, too! Adding them both to the cart will mean you pay shipping twice but that's also ok.

An Athema 03:46
I've got my life in my hand / My fingers splinted west / Each vision in night and day / Each burred tongue drifting / You gotta give or you gotta go / The dialectic of home / I can't remember anymore / What the words that I said were / You gotta give or you gotta go / GO / Unwound and this is it / It's not the place somewhere / In the shitty future / Smudge me into liquids / Maybe I said it even better / I just can't look at you/ I CLAIM IT ALL
