Twitching Tongues In Love There Is No Law

Selling Points

• Recorded and produced by Taylor Young at The Pit. • Black vinyl packaged in deluxe gatefold jacket with printed inner sleeve and free digital download. • Mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege. • RIYL: Life of Agony, Type O Negative.

Media & Marketing

• Exclusive full album stream with Lambgoat.com. • Music video for title track premiered on Revolver.

Relentlessly savage, utterly memorable, and always compelling, the sophomore album from Twitching Tongues takes all of their devotion to the next level! With nearly 40 minutes of uncompromising crossover fury, In Love There Is No Law melds elements of Carnivore, Obituary, Celtic Frost, Life of Agony, Sam Black Church, Elder, Cro-Mags, and Sheer Terror into an instantly mesmerizing, morose, and wholly distinctive alloy of metal, hardcore, and beyond. Modernizing the works of the masters from two decades ago (or more), with each hook and chorus the band’s punishing and primitive stylings grow more memorable, and will undoubtedly leave a lasting impression.

“By paying tribute to acts such as Life of Agony, Type O Negative, and Sam Black Church, Twitching Tongues update a distinctly ’90s sound for the Lockin’ Out generation.”

Selling Points

• Greg Barris’ first comedy album. • Recorded at UCB Chelsea in NYC. • Featured on “Funny or Die,” “College Humor,” and “Jay Leno’s Laugh Squad.” • Has been a commentator on MTV’s “All That Rocks” and “Warren the Ape.”

Greg Barris is a staple in New York’s downtown stand-up scene, and the creator of Heart of Darkness, a psychedelic showcase of comedy, live music, and fringe scientists that has been a frequent Time Out New York Critic’s Pick, much loved by BrooklynVegan and hailed as “excellent” by The New Yorker. Comedians who have appeared on Heart of Darkness include Reggie Watts, Fred Armisen, Janeane Garofalo, Jim Gaffigan, Marc Maron, Kristen Schaal, Eugene Mirman, Greg Behrendt, and Chelsea Peretti.

“A great comedian with a distinctly rock & roll style.”

“Greg Barris has made a name for himself with his consistently sold-out variety show of quirks.”

“The perfect combination of very good looking, hilarious, and super-weird.”

“Barris is a grade-A examiner of the human condition, finding its peculiarities and mining them for the humor that is so often present but not always easily articulated.”

• Named in the Top 10 of 2012 by Mouser. • Debut album from Sean Patton.

Brilliant debut album from a brilliant comic! Sean Patton mines jokes from inventive premises for 62 minutes of top-notch comedy. “The record showcases his range; he relays tales of love and family, shitty jobs and smoking weed, with the same electric energy as beatboxed bits and calculatedly grating impressions. While there’s no substitute for seeing him live, Standard Operating Procedure is the next best thing.” — SPLITSIDER “Patton is definitely one of the comedians we’ll watch grow into something to be marveled at. Anyone from the most critical of comedy fans to someone enjoying a few brewskis in a bar will be able to tell you why Standard Operating Procedure is a winner.” — MOUSER

Dan Telfer blesses us with a solid hour of stellar comedy, injecting a dark and doleful edge to the worlds of science, video games, and the trials of growing up nerdy.

• Debut album from Adam Burke. • Features 52 minutes of highly refined standup! • Has appeared on Doug Loves Movies, The Benson Interruption, The Bob & Tom Show, WGN 720 AM, Put Your Hands Together, and many more podcasts and shows. • Has opened for a variety of comedians including Marc Maron, Jeff Ross, Hari Kondabolu, Maria Bamford, Jake Johannsen, and more.

“Here’s the thing about my act: it’s not very entertaining, but it can be used for college credit.” Adam Burke does not dumb it down for you on his lofty debut. Enjoy the ride as Adam tackles proton accelerators, quantum physics, and the science of laziness. Originally from the UK, Adam began performing stand-up after writing a piece on comedy for a Chicago magazine. Before long, he had become a fixture at Midwestern shows and showcases. His absurdist, verbose comedy is long on metaphor and analogy, and short on common sense.

Shut Up is Two Knights’ debut full-length, built atop a sturdy frame garnered beginning with 2013’s A Lot Of Bad Things Happened, But We’re Still Here EP and a barrage of splits that saw them sharing wax with Empire! Empire! (I Was a Lonely Estate), Reptilian, and Innards. The two-piece of Parker Lawson (guitar, vocals) and Miles De Bruin (drums) takes the best of emo, hardcore, and jazz and combines it into one complete package. Think early Maps & Atlases technicality with a smoother, warmer edge, coated with a mix of vocals that range from extremely strained to extremely soft in a moment’s notice.

Simultaneously the debut and swansong for this California-based project from Gordon Lazarus, known previously for his work as Defiler and soon to be United Front. For By All Means, we find him continuing the path laid down by his previous project, upping the paranoia and abject sense of hopelessness and negativity. Make no bones about it: this is a bleak release, and it’s no surprise he’s employed the services of like-minded roster mates John Stillings of Steel Hook Prostheses and Andy Grant of The Vomit Arsonist. “Spectacular and excellent in both its grandiose debauchery and simplistic execution.” — INVISIBLE GUY Track Listing: Forced Neurotic Displacement • Asphyxiant Collapse • The Mechanics of Embalming • Aktion-Freedom.Reaktion-Rsistance • F.E.M.A. Care • By All Means • Suo Gan/Last Rights Key Markets: Hometown: San Diego.

STREET DATE APRIL 8, 2014

Only 11 months after the successful FH4 album, Faderhead is back to release his new CD, Atoms & Emptiness. The new record chronicles a period of time in the private life of the German producer where almost everything went wrong, and which apparently provided endless inspiration and intensified his songwriting process. Musically, Atoms & Emptiness must be considered the darkest and most melancholic Faderhead record. Although his trademark mix of club electro, pop songs, and ballads defines this album, you’ll be hard-pressed to find fun tracks like “Dancers” or “Coke For My Ass” this time around. Instead, Faderhead impressively shows how a mixture of EBM, industrial, electro, and synth-pop needs to sound in the year 2014 and once again leaves the competition in the dust.

Whisper Room is a trio formed in Toronto, consisting of Aidan Baker (Nadja, Adoran), Jakob Thiessen, and Neil Wiernik (Naw, Urban Refuse Group). The band took five years to prepare their sophomore album, and it certainly shows. Building on the beautifully layered soundscapes of 2009 debut Birch White, Whisper Room meticulously constructed a new micro-cosmos of fragile drones and atmospheric ambient pieces. Rippling melodies forged by Baker’s guitars and effects, and slow-progressing musical narratives shaped by Wiernik’s bass and laptop proficiency, keep expanding the listener’s horizon. Yet, before the soundscapes lose themselves in dispersion, Thiessen’s drums focus the narrative and thrust it back in line with vigorous urgency. A riveting and masterfully crafted record that’ll surely intrigue and enrapture its listeners!

After a split album with The Austrasian Goat for France’s Music Fear Satan, and their debut album for England’s Aurora Borealis, the obscure French entity Neige Morte joins the ConSouling Sounds roster! For their sophomore album, the band builds on their bizarre aesthetic of blending doom, noise, post-hardcore, and black metal. It sounds harsh and filthy at face value, but meticulously crafted tracks lie at the very core of Neige Morte’s practice. No words can do justice to the listening experience this album entails, so be prepared for an intense trip of intelligently concentrated sheer madness.

As part of the ConSouling Sounds collaboration series, the label was thrilled when Vanessa van Basten and Hemelbestormer accepted their invitation to team up. van Basten is surely no stranger to fans of post-metal and post-rock, having released exceptional albums like 2008’s Psygnosis EP. Hemelbestormer is a new project that formed out of the ashes of Gorath, one of the most unique black metal bands active on Belgian soil. Although they band can’t shake that “black metal feel,” they most definitely shouldn’t be pigeonholed in one genre. Their very idiosyncratic take on ambient, doom, drone, and post-metal matches beautifully with van Basten’s masterful approach to post metal and post rock. A truly unique collaborative effort!

After stunning split albums with Aidan Baker, Year of No Light, and Labirinto, Canada’s thisquietarmy now teams up with Belgium’s Syndrome. Musically, this split seems self-evident: both bands share a common view on crafting exhilarating soundscapes, seamlessly blending ambient, drone, and post-rock elements to cathartic climaxes. Yet this release is less self-evident than the premise of this match-up suggests. Taking cues from each other’s work, both bands were driven to explore a different approach to their craft and aesthetic. This split is dark and brooding, and explores the boundaries of atonal chaos and noise.

Ceremonies Out of the Air is the premiere solo album from virtuoso Philadelphia-based saxophonist Keir Neuringer. Consisting of five extended improvisations performed before an invited audience in August 2013, the album presents the widely traveled composer-performer’s raw emotions laid bare in sound. These ceremonies are physical exhalations of grief at the loss of his mother months before the recording, by turns contemplative, ecstatic, restrained, and unbridled. They reveal Neuringer’s prodigious technical vocabulary and physical stamina, as well as his idiosyncratic compositional influences and sensibilities. Central to all of it is the uncompromising urgency that is a key facet of Neuringer’s creative work. Get hip to what will be on every jazz critic’s Top 10 list at the end of 2014! Ceremonies Out of the Air is released on CD and double-vinyl gatefold LP by New Atlantis Records in February 2014. Recorded by Eugene Lew and mastered by Kato Hideki, it features specially commissioned art by Brooklyn-based painter Erin Rice and a deeply personal text by Neuringer. The album takes its title from a passage in Cormac McCarthy’s The Road: “Evoke the forms. Where you’ve nothing else construct ceremonies out of the air and breathe upon them.”

Pittsburgh’s Microwaves offer up a behemoth slab of splintered noise-rock fury with Regurgitant Phenomena, the group’s fourth LP and debut for New Atlantis Records. The album explodes from the drop of the needle, showcasing a ferocious power trio with taut, concise compositions, brimming with turbulent dissonance and massively energetic performances. With robotic kineticism, the band splits the difference between the cathartic fury of punk rock, the thorned intricacies of avant prog, and the brash pulsations of no wave. “Electroshock therapy as the new noise rock … deformed, twisted, overdriven, and unpredictable, with a sound that fuses late-period no wave (think the Flying Luttenbachers, minus the jazz chops) with classic hardcore negativity (e.g. Black Flag, Flipper) via testicular electrocution … 9 out of 10.” — DECIBEL Track Listing: Skull System • No Pictures Please • Drug Damage • Holy Week • Tapehead • The Dead Hand • End of an Error • Your Last Nerve • M.M.D.K. • Goonraker • Clone Parade Key Markets: Hometown: Pittsburgh.

Federico Albanese is a composer born in Milan, Italy in 1982, currently based in Berlin. His musical versatility is a natural gift that pushes him to explore music in all its facets. Albanese’s compositions are airy and cinematic, blending classical music, electronics, and psychedelia. Here, he melts his rarefied piano sound with electronics, strings, and homemade instruments, and the result is a combination of contrasts and colors with a variety of atmospheres.

Mima is the third album on Denovali Records from London-based musician Oliver Barrett, a.k.a. Petrels.

Building on retro-futuristic themes and delving deeper into ideas that lie between the twin poles of faith and uncertainty, this is another immersive sonic landscape from Petrels — more interested in posing questions than providing easy answers. “One of the few proper symphonic attempts beyond the tight-fisted so-called high culture.” — DE:BUG Track Listing: The 40 Year Mission to Titan Is Overtaken By The 40 Minute Mission To Titan • Katharina-22B • A Carapace For Carter’s Snort • Treetiger Key Markets: New York, Los Angeles, Tampa, Philadelphia, Chicago, San Antonio, Boston, Denver, Houston, Seattle, Portland, Cleveland, Columbus, Indianapolis, Detroit, Pittsburgh, Phoenix, Las Vegas, Seattle, Austin
