Listen to "Gift Shop" by Closer! Debut album out January 19th 17 December 2017

Closer is a 3-piece melodic hardcore band from Brooklyn whose members also all play in Real Life Buildings, who we did a record with earlier this year!

It’s amazing how much stuff you can fit in a great hardcore song. “Gift Shop,” the first thing we’ve heard from the new New York band Closer, has rushing, expressionistic black metal grandeur. It has twinkly, evocative Explosions In The Sky-esque guitar-chimes. It has enough time-signature switch-ups to leave your brain reeling. It has at least one moment where the rhythm section clicks into warlike lockstep and just conquers. And it has a feverish, committed performance from singer Ryann Slauson, who puts her entire soul into her brooding, raging, larynx-destroying wail. “Gift Shop” is two and a half minutes long, but it feels like an epic. And it also feels like the beginning of something. –Tom (Stereogum)

Surprise AJJ mini album "Back in the Jazz Coffin" out today! 18 August 2017

Happy to releasing another cassette for AJJ. They were one of the first bands I got to release something for and now Back in the Jazz Coffin is #66! 5 new songs available on cassette here, and CD from the band!

Back in the Jazz Coffin delivers honesty and appreciation as singer Sean Bonnette recounts experiences as varied as a childhood memory or spats with Border Patrol and an ex. Such scenes perfectly refract the sights and sounds that grow up to become memories. With five songs that clock in at less than ten minutes, Back in the Jazz Coffin reminds us why we fell in love with AJJ in the first place: they blow the cap off secrets with an awe-inspiring degree of candidness. Bonnette trusts listeners with his darkest moments and deepest sources of shame, shedding wisdom all the while.
