Asterisk* “Dogma I” LP
One of my favorite kinds of music is metal, and as a subgenre, grindcore definitely takes the cake. Rarely has there been a grindcore album that remains on the back of mind for over decade. One of them is this album. I think next to Discordance Axis’ “Inalienable Dreamless”, it’s my favorite.
Presented in “boring” grey packaging with a die-cut “*” on the sleeve, Dogma I is anything but (for the record, I’m a major fan of minimalist design). The label who released it, Three One G, is really awesome. They really put a lot of love into their releases, especially when it comes to the artwork side of things.
Since this is an album that been a big part of my life so long, I have a lot of memories associated with it. It’s hard to pick one to write about.
The first that comes to mind is during my latter days of working at CD Baby in Portland, OR. I was intent on moving back to San Luis Obispo, CA, but didn’t really have the money to do so. I was more than heartbroken with the fact that the only way I could make some money was to sell records from my collection, but I was somewhat relieved to send them off to good homes, and trust that they’re still in the hands of my friends. I hope the albums bring them as much joy as they did for me.
Luckily, I’ve been able to re-acquire a lot of those albums. This particular album is the same pressing as what I had before, but the idea of not having the particular piece of music that I grew with still kind of bums me out. I guess that how record collecting goes… you buy some, you sell some.

Tortuganónima: S/T 

We are very very pleased to be releasing Chile’s Post-Rock/Math Rock kings, Tortuganónima’s first self-titled LP on cassette!

With elements of jazz-rock and latin influences, tortuganónima are very different from your standard post-rock or math rock band, with a slightly more somber sound than most, while retaining the beautiful atmospheric melodies and rhythms of post-rock and the hectic drumming and tapping of math rock.

These cassettes are spray-painted a sandy gold to correspond with the artwork and the first run will have 25 copies in it.

!!!! Yesss !!!!!
