    ANDY HUMAN & THE REPTOIDS

    Psychic Sidekick

    [engl] There's Aliens In Our Midst! Transmitting from the same warbley orbit as fellow Californians Twinkeyz, as well as outliers Roxy Music, and Gary Numan's Tubeway Army, Andy Human (The World, Naked Roommate, Time Flys) and The Reptoids are back with their first full length in almost four years. In the time between they've teased us with a bunch of killer singles. A succession of short blast preparing the world for their eventual invasion. Here we are in the 2019 and the mothership is descending. 'Psychic Sidekick' is a 10 track transmission of intent. Space is the place and The Reptoids are here to carry us away.

    BRANDY

    Clown Pain

    [engl] BRANDY features members of PAMPERS and RUNNING and released a killer 12" on MONOFONUS last year. This is their second release and it's just as much a brain bludgeon as their first. Following in the knuckle dragging, pavement scraping, blood trails as such acts as LAMPS and MAYYORS, BRANDY lays down a scuzz heavy sonic pummeling over this two track single. Loud, brutal, fuzzed.

    BRANDY

    The Gift of Repetition

    [engl] New York's Brandy (Ex-Pampers, Running) are back with their sophomore LP and first on TOTAL PUNK. "The Gift of Repetition" is an eight track study in just that. Loud plodding and rhythmic. It will have you bobbing your head till it breaks off your neck. They all share vocal duties often chanting over each other and the lyrics are singular in vision. Bleak with a grin. Synth is added on a few tracks with mind-melting results. When the only other bands that come to mind are A-Frames, Lamps and Mayyors you are obviously doing something right. Pulsing, throbbing, and 100% TOTAL PUNK!!! Limited to 350 copies!

    FOSTER CARE

    El Abuso

    [engl] New York’s Foster Care is back with a brand new LP for Total Punk, and the first since adding Allison Busch (Awesome Colors, Call Of The Wild) on drums. El Abuso finds Foster Care at their most realized. It’s tight wound, ferocious, dark and dare I say smart. Has Foster Care grown up? Have they left their foster parents for the half way house? An 11 song nineteen minute punk maelstrom. This isn't a collection of songs it's a heaving beast. An absolutely relentless wall of pounding drums, vicious guitar, and gnarly bass rumble with Chris Teenager biting the air above it all. They even finds some moments to get weird and reflective between the throbbing outburst and violent spasms. Mean, loud, and 100% TOTAL PUNK!

    IV

    s/t

    [engl] Total Punk is proud to present the debut 7" from Minneapolis supergroup IV (featuring members of Joust, Citric Dummies, Color TV, ). A four song fist pumping face pummel. A band well aware of the power of punk simplicity and wielding it with perfection. Buzzsaw guitars, quick chords changes, and the occasional stop/ start all propelled forward by huge vocal hooks. I first saw these guys at an American Legion last year and the songs were still stuck in my head when they sent these recordings four months later.

    Knowso

    Like A Buzz

    [engl] Cleveland's KNOWSO is another project from the PERVERTS AGAIN/ CRUELSTER camp and it's every bit as demented as you've come to expect from these lads. Dark lumbering repetitive punk incantations driven along by tom heavy neanderthalic drums, chant heavy vocals, and shoulder shaking bass grooves. These boys have a pentiant for off balance hardcore rumblings and KNOWSO is their newest platform in which to do so.

    TRUE SONS OF THUNDER

    It Was Then I WAs Carrying You

    [engl] Total Punk is proud to be releasing the third LP by shed dwellers TRUE SONS OF THUNDER. Featuring members of Manateees, Oblivians, Mangina, Rat Traps...TSOT has turned not caring into an art form and even unknowingly submitted a track from their second LP for inclusion on this one. Sour tunes for sour times. Lurching low end, two guitars and a banjitar that make a cacaphanous symphony which can only be described as amp torture. Southern RAWK in a concrete mixer. Dad rock for deadbeats! This was the record Total Punk was made to put out and it only took us 8 years to get here. Loud, broken, out of tune, and 100% TOTAL PUNK!!!!
