Out on ILR today: J. GALLEGO - Wash OST LP


J. GALLEGO - Wash OST LP w/download (LUNGS-065)
  This minimal synth driven soundtrack effectively captures what it's like to wander the desert at night. It's full of chance meetings and mystical events that can only be believed by experiencing them personally. A haunting midnight road trip through the imaginary cinemascape of Wash, a motion picture spectacle by J. Gallego. You may know that name because he is the main force behind DREAMDECAY whose album we released last year (and is available again now). Don't be afraid to think of Mica Levy (Under The Skin) or Rob (Maniac [2012]) or even Susan Justin's Forbidden World when you hear Wash.
  "Man, this is really cool! Right up my alley. I kind of feel like I want to listen to this when I go camping next weekend, but at the same time I feel like it's way too freaky for that. When track 4 kicked in the dog got real spooked and tried to lick the speaker and then stared it for several minutes." -J. Robinson
 Wash comes packaged in a custom diecut jacket with a full color inner sleeve inside. All on black vinyl. A one time pressing of 500 copies.

Also back is an orangy gold vinyl version of White Glove Test. What a month.

GAG - America's Greatest Hits LP w/download (LUNGS-075)
 Destined to be the most famous of all the bands. At least in their vision of the future that is. We like them. You like them. Why not? Go big or fuck off.
 Trippy violence and snake charms drenched in delay and fuel this wild, ugly, mid-tempo hardcore punk vehicle. All the way across the salt. For 180 days. Crew up and get down with America’s greatest.
 700 copies on black vinyl, 300 on something else, housed in a heavy duty sleeve adorned with Scott Young’s perfect artwork. Recorded by Nudity’s own Capt. Tripps in Olympia, WA.


BEHAVIOR - 375 Images of Angels LP w/download (LUNGS-074)
  John Cage related this anecdote: “One evening I was walking along Hollywood Boulevard, nothing much to do. I stopped and looked in the window of a stationary shop. A mechanized pen was suspended in space in such a way that, as a mechanized roll of paper passed by it, the pen went through the motions of the same penmanship exercises I had learned as a child in the third grade. Centrally placed in the window was an advertisement explaining the mechanical reasons for the perfection of the operation of the suspended mechanical pen. I was fascinated, for everything was going wrong. The pen was tearing the paper to shreds and splattering ink all over the window and on the advertisement, which, nevertheless, remained legible.”
  This little musing somehow rhymes with the spirit of BEHAVIOR’s '375 Images of Angels,' unique “musical” approach to punk. The very essence of punk is a contemptuous “fuck you” to convention anyway, or at least a troubled groping for new avenues of self creation. There is a simple beauty in deconstruction, in calculated naivety, in messes, in processes and in the plain night air of Los Angeles. '…Angels' dances like a dog shaking off a swim. '...Angels' is as deliberate as it is free. Don’t we all want this dichotomy in our lives? The drive to make our time our own and the permission to chase joy?


GAUCHO - Desplazados 7" w/download (LUNGS-072)
 The darkness and hate of living in the modern day is inescapable. People will always try to control you, force their ideologies on you and bind you with their ridiculous laws. Sooner or later you will get tired and hit back. And if true passion is there, you will succeed. It is hard not to hear the passion on this record. Gaucho delivers a Colombia-via-Canada raw hardcore pogo march to the death of tyrants far and wide. Members of S.H.I.T. give us a 5 song window into the struggle for a higher quality of life and we thank them for that.

and last but not least


WILKINSON/KORTLAND - One Scythe Fits All OST 7" w/download (LUNGS-073)
 The highest fidelity lo-fi synth driven soundtrack written and recorded by PIG HEART TRANSPLANT partners in crime, Greg Wilkinson and Jon Kortland. To say it's heavy and creepy is a no brainer. Are there slight moments of comic relief? Of course, it's a horror movie, duh. In true 80's slasher style there a small bits of dialogue between scintillating score tracks. Imagine listening to a mashup of Black Devil Doll From Hell (Chester N. Turner) and The Fog (John Carpenter) and you start to get an idea of the sounds happening here. Would you swim in a a pool where a dead body was found? We would, and we would listen to this while we were doing it.
 300 copies on red and black splatter vinyl housed in a beautiful full color pocket sleeve with merch insert. Art: Amy Browne. Photos: Karoline Collins. Directed: Dionne Stevens & Maya Messoriano.
