marshall teller records-broken record label sampler-artwork

Marshall Teller Records have produced their first sampler ‘Broken Record Vol. 1′ and it’s shaping up to be a special compilation! It includes unreleased songs by “The History Of Apple Pie featuring Gary Jarman of the Cribs (listen), Cheatahs rework Geographic (National) from their recent debut, The Vaccines are morphed by Tom Furse from The Horrors, Great Ytene cover a classic Orange Juice track and Potty Mouth are live from New York’s Glasslands. The record also has new music from Echo Lake, Dignan Porch, Winter Drones, Warm Brains, Parlour and Grass House.” It’s a real treat to hear ‘This Year’, a new song from Echo Lake. It’s been two years since their debut LP ‘Wild Peace’ and the passing of drummer Pete Hayes. But the London five piece are back playing shows and are at work on their second album! Pick up ‘Broken Record Vol. 1′ on vinyl or digital from August 18.

Introducing Cloak, a four piece band out of New York City. There’s precious little information about these newcomers, who recently posted a demo of their first song ‘Pushed’. It’s a bold rocker that crosses boundaries with electronic, noise rock and industrial. Brooklyn locals can catch their debut show at Glasslands on August 2.

La Hell Gang – ‘Thru Me Again’

la-hell-gang-thru-me-again-artwork

New from the Mexican Summer label, ‘Thru Me Again’, the eight track sophomore album by Chilean threesome La Hell Gang! It  takes us on a hazy, meandering trip to a psych-tinged landscape. From the muddy, swaying ‘Her Way Has Come’ to the hypnotically simple chords of ‘Sweet Dear’, La Hell Gang rely on their  full, reverb-heavy sound and bluesy psych sensibilities to hold it together.

The band know when to pile on biting layers for vintage rock blasts, and when to pull them back to a dreamy, mirage-like guitar wail that dyes Sweet Dear’s familiar tune in ‘Everywhere I Go.’ The Gang even have a “molten visual spinner” (as below) to occupy your mind while you tune out to the noisy closer ‘So High’. The album may lose focus as the band explore different sounds and indulge in 8-minute psych rock jams, but with the right mindset ‘Thru Me Again’ is a fun ride. [By Dave Lytton]
