Sorry people, I forgot to post the new releases for the week on Tuesday. Here is what I could find.
Harvey Milk- "Harvey Milk" (Hydra Head)
"Reissue of these early recordings by the Athens, GA-based band. You may know this Harvey Milk release as the Bob Weston Sessions, an unreleased full-length that has been floating around the .blogspot world for some time. This limited Tour Edition is the first time this record has been made available on a physical format and the audio has been re-mastered for a more enjoyable listening experience."
Mondo Drag- "New Rituals" (Alive Records)
"From deep in the cosmos of Iowa comes a force known as Mondo Drag! With a wall of sound all their own, an arsenal of guitars, and a head full of clouds, they are on a rock n roll mission all their own. Members Johnnie Cluney, Nolan Girard, John Gamino, Dennis Hockaday, and Jake Sheley find themselves somewhere between garage, psych, space, sludge and stoner rock. With songs of life, death, love, revenge, and the unknown, they are flying head first into the future with an anchor of reference for the past. Channeling artists like Pink Floyd, Pentagram, Blue Cheer, even Hendrix just to skip decades for hints of Sonic Youth, Dead Meadow, and Comets on Fire. The band spent the months of September and October of 2009 recording "New Rituals" which will be released on Alive records. The album was recorded at Future Apple Tree Studios Too with Pat Stolley. Since their start Mondo Drag has had the privilege of playing with such artists as: Sleepy Sun, Dead Meadow, Witchcraft, Black Diamond Heavies, Radio Moscow, Jennifer Gentle, The Dodos, La Otracina, Cass McCombs, Cave, Awesome Color, Monotonix, just to name a few."
Divide the Sea- "Man" (Blood & Ink)
"Groove-laden, southern fried metalcore"
