RHYECE O' NEILL AND THE NARODNIKS "Death of a Gringo" GATEFOLD LP BR254

Death of a Gringo was recorded in a week live to tape: vocals, guitar, drums and bass all recorded live. Rhyece O'Neill taught Rick (bass) the songs a couple of weeks prior though Danny (drums) had never heard any of them until the day of the session. Once they had the right sound and were ready to go Rhyece would teach Danny and Rick the songs in the studio kitchen with an acoustic guitar. After a beer they were ready. They would go in and Nell (Engineer) would roll the tape. They never did more than three takes. Once a song was done they would go back to the kitchen, have another beer and learn another song. They recorded fifteen songs this way.

Rhyece O’Neill’s songwriting talent has received praise from Tex Perkins (The Cruel Sea/Beasts of Bourbon), Spencer P. Jones (Beasts of Bourbon/Gun Club), Brian Hooper (Beasts of Bourbon/Roland S. Howard), Richard Kingsmill (Triple J Music director) & Steven Walker (The Ghost Triple R Radio). He has toured and performed with The Beasts of Bourbon, The Ape, The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Spencer P. Jones, Hanni El Khatib & White Denim. Steeped in the blues, rock & roll and country his influences range from Iggy Pop, W.H. Auden, PJ Harvey, The Cramps, Nick Cave, Mark Lanegan, Sylvia Plath, David Lynch, Rowland S. Howard, Patti Smith, Henry Miller, Townes Van Zandt, Dostoyevsky, Lightnin’ Hopkins & Dylan.

HOA QUEEN "s/t" LP BR256 / Digipack CD BR256CD

Hoa Queen is a flower that comes from abroad.
Bold and white, it breaks through the night before dying in the pale morning light.
A beauty just given and already gone.
Its petals will never taste the dew.
Hoa Queen is one, all, or several women.
The one screaming her pain, the one spitting her anger, the one that daydreams on a cell bench.
An army of wounded bodies and wandering souls marching with grace through a scarlet night.
A parade of damaged silhouettes dancing along with the intensity of despair.
Marjorie, awaiting for death in a row, Lucia, giving away her flesh and self for money, Aileen taking her preys to the edges of a wood. Lizzie, Willow, Betty…
Hoa Queen tells their stories, writes them on skins and strings. 5 musicians who have already been playing here and there, together and apart. 5 musicians carried by the whispers of those
broken women, tuned to emotions, walking on a tightrope to create music coming from a deep place that smells like cotton, mud, sun and night, tears and blood.

KING GIZZARD AND THE LIZARD WIZARD Polygondwanaland LP BR666

“We do not own this record. You do. Go forth, share, enjoy.” So declare Australian psych freaks King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard in the press release of ‘Polygondwanaland’, their fourth album of 2017.
So Beast Records release it on vinyl, 500 copies only, exclusive Beast back cover.
King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard have gained prominence from their unconventional and idiosyncratic psychedelic sound.  On top of that, they’ve managed to release twelve albums in six years.  In 2017, they did a total of five albums over a span of twelve months.  Add that with a tongue twister of a name and you’ve got yourselves an eccentric psychedelic rock band that loves to experiment.
Here, we have their fourth project released in 2017, named Polygondwanaland. The band encapsulates here all of their different styles from their other two albums released that year.  As expected, this is their most refined record of the four of them.
King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard have continuously shown why they are one of the most appealing bands amongst hardcore music fans.  They keep things interesting.  they don’t care whether you think they’re good or bad. On their fourth album of 2017, the Aussies seemed to have created their most complete sound.

HARLAN T. BOBO "A History of Violence" LP BR262

Once the intro to opener “Human” gives way to its fully-realized sonic purpose, it’s obvious that Harlan T. Bobo’s fourth proper album, A History of Violence, is quite different from his previous body of work. The classic historical emotional heft of a songwriter trying to make sense of life’s chaos, think mid-70s Lou Reed, especially Coney Island Baby, is a thread that can be heard running through the album’s mid-tempo tracks like “Human” and the miniature literary tragedy that is “Nadine”. The punchier tracks on the album, like “Spiders”, might conjure very early Green On Red, what X’s mid-80s output could have been, or even the roots-rock tendencies of overlooked genius, Cass McCombs.

A History of Violence still highlights Bobo’s whiskey-and-cigarette-informed vocal style, and on the more intimate tracks, it’s a distorted ear candy that warbles into increasingly sunken, uncomfortable places, like that of the songwriter with which comparisons have followed Bobo throughout his career: the late Leonard Cohen. But there is a richer canvas on which to work this time out, not to mention a decidedly heavier and darker one. The album was recorded in Memphis with Doug Easley, who has previously worked with Cat Power, Pavement, Wilco, Sonic Youth, Jon Spencer, and Jeff Buckley. Bobo also brought in Steve Selvidge (The Hold Steady, Bash & Pop) on bass and Jeff “Bunny” Dutton (Action Family) on guitar, along with regular contributors Jeff Bouck (Polyphonic Spree) and Brendan Spangler (Viva l’American Death Ray). The result is a naturally dynamic album that seems equally at home with howling guitars and heavy bass lines as it does with haunting piano and humble pleas. A History of Violence is Bobo’s most complex -- and complete -- album to date.

Proudly co-released with Goner Records.

DRUIDS OF THE GUE CHARETTE "All The Darkness Looks Alive" LP BR250

After centuries secretly spent by cultivating their obscure rites, the rumor gradually spreads that the Druids of the Gué Charette sect would have found, in Western amplified music, a conducive vector to the diffusion of its mysterious cult. Indeed, each of his performances is a celebration of the hidden forces of the universe, a veneration brought to the invisible powers of electricity as well as a tribute to the primordial noise, central element of a cosmogony with forgotten origins. Unaware of the labels themselves, the Druids allow insiders and rock critics to identify heavy-psych, garage or even post-punk dimensions on occasion.
All the Darkness Looks Alive is the Druids second LP on Beast Records.

CATL. "Bide My Time Until I Die" LP BR249

‘Bide My Time Until I Die' features the Toronto duo slammin’ out 10 new bangers that capture both the simplicity, and the energy of their live shows.
Recorded over 3 different sessions, one in Memphis and two in Toronto, CATL. wanted to make a record that allowed each engineer to interpret the songs in their own way. Adam Hill at Sam Phillips Studio, Jeff McMurrich at Sonology, and Walter Sobczak at Revolution Recording had no idea what the other engineer was up to and were left alone to do their thing. Garage Rock legend Jim Diamond (of the now defunct Ghetto Recorders studio in Detroit) brought it all together in the mastering process, somewhere in France.

THE BRAVES "Carry On the Con" LP BR252

From the opening track Hanging Church (feat Spencer P. Jones with a trademark solo) The Braves take you on a sonic ride that will convince you that they are on the up.
Formed late 2012 on the outskirts of Melbourne, Australia, The Braves came cutting through the surrounding noise to create a sound and a notoriety that is uniquely their own.
Starting with Djesse Bolte on bass and Kelly Watson on guitar, the two quickly found the drummer to suit in Ethan Leversha, the last outcast in town. With a mission statement fully in tact and the sound to follow The Braves started playing every opportunity they got from warehouse parties to backwash bars, artist collectives to the deserts and anarchist centres while building the ever-evolving mould of their music.
Their first album for Spooky Records 'All Through Paradise" was released in Feb 2017 and they're now gearing up to release their 3rd album 'Carry on the Con' on Beast Records. Touring Europe March / April 2018.

CHICKEN DIAMOND "Skeleton Coast" LP / CD BR248

Chicken Diamond is the French lunatic that has already given us 4 albums of terrifying primal blues that sound like he is backed by the lost lords of rock’n’roll. This record takes the music away from that and creates something even more compelling. His vocal changes too, it’s not just that gargling gravel and petrol growl. He sings and even croons... The music has moved forward too, oh the blues are still there, and, trust me, they are just as harsh and demented as before. But there’s more in Skeleton Coast!

Chicken Diamond first LP is here (sold out).

MIDNIGHT SCAVENGERS "Anga Vale" LP BR246

Revolving around singer/songwriters Johanna Brockman and her partner Dimitri Kucharzewski, Midnight Scavengers are a unique and compelling presence.
Situated between sinister violent beauty and volatile fragmented shyness, Johanna Brockman, once a member of James McCann’s Dirty Skirt Band, and The Brian Hooper Band (who opened for Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds on their 2009 Tour) met up with now partner in songs Dimitri Kucharzewski (Nikki Sudden’s Last Bandits, The Hollowmen) in Berlin in 2011 to create the core of what would become Midnight Scavengers.
After relocating to Melbourne in 2012, they grew to a five piece with the addition of Jeff Hooker (Brian Hooper’ s band, Kim Salmon, The Darling Downs) on bass, Tim O’Shannassy (MJ Halloran, Paradise Motel, Penny Ikinger) on drums, and Andrew Watson  (The Man Who Wasn’t There, Charlie Marshall) on violin and guitar. Midnight Scavengers have become an extremely well respected and recognized band, playing alongside legendary figures such as Spencer P. Jones, Kim Salmon, Hugo Race and Ron S. Peno among others.

Chatterbox is a French duet born from its passion for Flying Nuns and the Scottish C88 scene.
Their debut LP was recorded at Kerwax by Christophe Chavanon and here comes a raw and minimalist pop magnified by a delicate and ethereal female voice reminding of the ghosts of Young Marble Giant, The Vaselines or Rowland S. Howard.
