Metro Crowd’s ‘Planning:’ is out

We’re back with our first proper release of 2019, and yes we are back in ROMA, la capitale, for Metro Crowd‘s ‘Planning:‘.
This is one of the most alien records we have ever released, this band really travels at their own speed. People have thrown in Chrome, Brainiac, Cabaret Voltaire… I think it’s just the product of that still fertile Roma-Est underground.
Metro Crowd’s members come from Mai Mai Mai, our own Holiday Inn, Sect Mark, Trouble Vs Glue, Fanfulla, No=Fi Recordings etc., they definitely have an outsider vision of whatever the Italian Occult Psych scene was all about a few years ago.

Become a believer now. Full story and infos below.

” Undeniably a genre-bender, their sound runs the gamut of discordance with the pounding delayed-out percussion of Godflesh, the seriously angular and atonal guitar styling of Big Black, and the condescending haughtiness of White House vocals. ” Cvlt Nation

Cindy Lee’s Act Of Tenderness!

a2271212016_10cindyleeactvinyl

Cindy Lee’s ‘holy grail’ needs no introduction, right?

Initially released on the diva’s own CCQSK E N T E R P R I S E S, Act Of Tenderness is a mouth watering piece of art, an ephemera of beauty and ache that singer, guitarist, drag queen Patrick Flegel had been collecting and weaving into his own personal world up to 2015 when it was initially released. You don’t need to know anything else, just get your hands on one.

Video Duct, Tropical Trash & Brutal Birthday

videoduct1500 BBTTSPLIT_1500_300dpi

Heavy hearts here at the HQ, but we have two last insane releases before we can say CIAO to 2017.

Small Pets And Kitchenettes is Video Ducts’ first release for Maple Death Records, 50 minutes of art, menace, breakdowns, noise, no wave, concrete dub, punk squelches, benzo pills and 8 track wizardry created, recorded and executed all alone by American teenager Kelly Ribiat. Our pals over at DECODER previewed a track and you listen to it now. Infos & Pre-order HERE.

What can you do with 7 minutes of pure salivating filled to the brim fortune telling pieces of audio conglomerates? Well Maple Death puts ‘em together side by side: Kentucky, Louisville’s finest Tropical Trash and Bologna’s saddest Brutal Birthday. More to it? Euro tour in the works for December with this slab of precious wax loaded in the van in an easy digestible 7” split format. Noisey previewed the 7″ so head over to LISTEN. Infos & Pre-Order HERE.

See you in the future!
