Out now on ILR: NUDITY - Astronomicon LP

  ''You will notice small objects - such as ornaments - oscillating. You will notice vibrations in your diaphragm. You will hear a distant hissing in your ears. You will feel the need to vomit. You will feel dizzy. You will have difficulty focussing, You will need to breathe more rapidly. THERE WILL BE BLEEDING FROM ORIFICES. There will be an ache in the pelvic region. You may be subject to fits of hysterical shouting or even laughter."

  These are all signs of the NUDITY LP being available today. BUY IT HERE.

NUDITY - Astronomicon LP w/download (LUNGS-062)
  "Astronomicon features driving uptempo beats, ringing choruses, and twin-guitar harmonies that segue into improvised jams invoking the MC5 at their Sun Ra-channeling best, cruise through talkbox-laden breakdowns and finish with pulse-revving big bang crescendos. Inspiration for the tracks came from places as lofty as long summers spent working fire lookouts on remote mountaintops, to lowly as a need for cathartic musical release after inter-band fights.
  As its arresting cover imagery (painted by Brittany Stallings) suggests, Nudity pulls listeners to a place where the earthiest, most carnal human attributes bend around to meet supernal desires, while vouching that lovers of grit-filled Rock'n'roll get a headbanging fix. You can liken it to time travel, space travel, or space-time travel, but once on board, Nudity will take you to sonic frontiers in a style all their own.
  The current lineup might be their most impressive yet, bringing talent from bands such as the Tight Bro's From Way Back When, Hysterics, The Need, Sex/Vid, Broken Water and more." -internet

  "Do not panic. Think only of yourself." Trust us, this is worth the money.

  Thank you a good day.

ILR Single Series 3 kicks off with a FLESH WORLD single


FLESH WORLD - Just To Tear Me Down 7" (LUNGS-068)
 The first installment in the 3rd series of ILR 2 song singles. This new series sees blank labels, color specific to the band (light blue in FW's case), that will be hand stamped and a standardized j-card sleeve that will also be hand stamped and numbered. All singles in this series will be strictly limited to 314 copies. This should be ready for consumption by end of April or early May or whenever that Record Store Day bullshit stops slowing down all the pressing plants.

 More of that dreamy yet jagged pop sensation that you've come to know from FLESH WORLD. The A side is from the album and the B is an exclusive remix done by none other than that Canadian audio shaman Don Pyle. 
 This is a booster slab for the upcoming "The Wild Animals In My Life" LP due out in June on this fine imprint. Arts by Jess Scott ("she's very good").

Out Now: SOLUTIONS & TRTRKMMR LPs on ILR!

Today is a day and whether that is full of consequences or rewards for you, these two long awaited things are what we have to offer:


TRTRKMMR - Avec La Souillure Nous Entrons Au Règne De La Terreur LP w/download (LUNGS-052)
   Four years in the making, TRTRKMMR's Avec La Souillure Nous Entrons Au Règne De La Terreur is an aural assault rifle set to unleash a blackened unorthodox power-electronic hell upon you. Since the first scribble, it's author has endured organ ruptures, physical and mental collapse, deaths and unheated Wisconsin winters. That pain and more comes through in the unearthly maelstrom of "music" created using chopped/crippled vinyl records, mountains of literary research, AK-47s and a plethora of secret sound equipment. A truly compelling and singular vision here. Be careful.
   500 copies come in high strength jackets with a 20 page booklet and a hand numbered insert stamped with human blood.


SOLUTIONS - Life Of Joy 12" w/ download (LUNGS-030)
  A band that was never supposed to have a long life has performed a grand total of 2 times, once in Milwaukee (home to Justin Kern), once in Buffalo (home to David Bailey & Patrick Bolger) and will finalize the trilogy by performing their maniac music in Seattle (home to Joe Bellucci) this March 2015. This will be it.
  "SOLUTIONS' contribution is brief but hugely important to the lexicon of modern power violence. Short, brutal and uncompromising sound blisters here, even to the well-calloused ear. No one plays it like these guys. It is baffling and otherworldly to see. When IRON LUNG played their first show in Milwaukee a few years ago they made me want to retire from playing music altogether and I fucking love doing what I do. Rarely does a band hit me that hard." -Jensen Ward
  Recorded by Jackson Long and Shane Hochstetler. Art by Craig Sheperd. 300 copies ever.

Both are available in our fine store found HERE.

Please continue with your day and it's spoils or squanders.
Love, Jensen
