Coaltar of the Deepers – Revenge of the Visitors

Coaltar of the Deepers is one of the most versatile bands of Japan’s shoegazer scene, effortlessly weaving disparate genres into tapestries of psychedelic brilliance.

Revenge of the Visitorstheir first official release outside of Japan via Needlejuice Records, is a complete re-envisioning of their 1994 debut album. Guitarist, vocalist and songwriter NARASAKI reunites with four original members of the band to update these songs for the 21st century, strengthening their bravura spectacle.

Coaltar of the Deepers have always strived to make music that sounds as alien as their silver-helmeted alien guises: sludgy, foreboding metal gives way to surf rock, malevolent growls harmonize with heavenly pop vocals, and hardcore drumwork conjures storms in mellow seas of reverbed guitars. Revenge of the Visitors is a perfect introduction to a legendary band, encapsulating both their humble beginnings and soaring heights. The album drops digitally on January 27, 2021.

This PRE-ORDER is expected to ship in March.

Shipping Updates (View-Monster, Flight of the Knife, Problem Attic)

LEMON DEMON – VIEW-MONSTER
CASSETTES

View-Monster cassettes are in-hand and NOW SHIPPING. If you pre-ordered a cassette without any other pre-order items, you should have gotten your tracking number already.


LEMON DEMON – VIEW-MONSTER VINYL & CDs
View-Monster CDs should begin shipping very soon. We expect to receive them from the manufacturers within the next week or so.
VINYL, unfortunately, has been slightly delayed due to COVID. 2020 strikes again. But don’t fret, because this should only be a miniscule delay. The pressing plant says they are on schedule to be completed during the first week of December. We’ll be cutting it close, but with any luck, most people who ordered it should still receive it around Christmas. This also applies to the Something Glowing 7″ records.

LEMON DEMON – VIEW-MONSTER  & SPIRIT PHONE 8-TRACKS
The 8-tracks for View-Monster and Spirit Phone are going to take longer than our original estimation. They are once again being made by Dead Media Tapes– a fabulous 8-track creator– and he is just particularly backed up with orders at the moment.
Don’t worry, this isn’t anything like the Great 8-Track Fiasco of 2019. Dead Media Tapes is a highly trusted operation. But it’s also a one-man operation, and his operation has gotten a lot more popular in recent times! (Hey, congrats to him.)
We are now estimating that the 8-tracks will ship in Spring 2021. For anybody who ordered 8-tracks with other items, we will ship all of the other items in your order so that you don’t have to wait 3-4 months for everything you bought.

BRYAN SCARY – FLIGHT OF THE KNIFE
CASSETTES

The cassettes for Flight of the Knife are also in-hand and NOW SHIPPING. Everybody who pre-ordered it without any other pre-order items has received a tracking number.

BRYAN SCARY – FLIGHT OF THE KNIFE
VINYL

The vinyl for Flight of the Knife is still on-track to being completed in December and will begin shipping out at the same time as the View-Monster vinyl.
You can also get Black & Greene’s “Sky Imitation” variant here.

MINDSPRING MEMORIES – THE BINARY OCEAN
VINYL & CASSETTES

While we estimate that The Binary Ocean products will likely be finished in December, as originally stated– the timing will likely work out so that they don’t end up shipping until January. The vinyl is estimated to be completed on December 17, which means it’ll be shipping to us during the Christmas rush, and we don’t particularly want to make guesses on how quickly it’ll get here. Thus, we’re going to make the estimation that these products will now be shipping in January.
The cassettes are being slightly delayed due to a shortage of rave cases, but we’re still estimating that they will be ready in January along with the vinyl.

NUCLEAR BUBBLE WRAP – PROBLEM ATTIC
(ALL PRODUCTS)

We heard the audience feedback on Problem Attic, and we’re listening. While we got an overwhelming amount of support for this project, we also got many comments relating to the clarity of the mixes. We’ve heard the criticism, and we are adjusting accordingly. The album is now undergoing a total re-mix project from the ground-up, with Nuclear Bubble Wrap’s original producer, Steve Goodie.
This of course, means there will be delays in the products, but the album will be a lot more professional sounding and up to par, and we know it’ll be worth the wait.
For this reason, we now estimate that all Problem Attic products will ship in Spring 2021.

MindSpring Memories – The Binary Ocean

US: Needlejuice | Bandcamp

Non-US: No Problema

We’re very excited to announce that our first ever triple LP is none other than MindSpring Memories’ epic album The Binary Ocean. Now available from pre-order from Needlejuice Records in the US, and No Problema Tapes internationally.

Angel Marcloid, the brains behind Fire-Toolz and the queen of slushwave, brings forth her most ambitious project under the MindSpring Memories name: The Binary Ocean. Take a trip and set out for a psychonaut voyage through the depths of the sea.

The triple LP will be in a triple gatefold, each record turning to a darker blue as you get deeper into the album. The double-cassette will be reissued, in the same outer packaging as the original releases.

The Binary Ocean orders are expected to ship in December.

Bryan Scary – Flight of the Knife – Now Available

BRYAN SCARY & THE SHREDDING TEARS – Flight of the Knife

The recorded debut of Scary’s touring band, The Shredding Tears. Inspired by Pynchon’s “Against the Day,” the album tells tall tales of airships and innocence lost, bookended by the legend of Airship Valentine. The record is a masterful concept album channeling the sounds of 70s psychedelic pop.

Now available for the first time on vinyl and cassette. Vinyl editions will have a Gatefold Jacket.

Flight of the Knife was named the Editor’s Pick on iTunes in 2008, where it flew to the #6 rock album on the platform.

Nuclear Bubble Wrap – Problem Attic Now Available For Pre-Order

Nuclear Bubble Wrap is an alternative rock band fronted by Needlejuice co-founder Jace McLain. They’ve been making music on the internet for a very long time. You may remember them from their 2010 internet hit “Sharktopus.” A lot has happened since. Nuclear Bubble Wrap are about to release the final piece of a decade-spanning trilogy of psychedelic rock albums.

Nuclear Bubble Wrap’s greatest creation yet, Problem Attic is a 45-minute genre-hopping roller coaster ride through the hurricane of bullshit that’s terrorized us for our entire lives. It’s the experience of growing up in a miserable world on the verge of falling apart. Corporations paper over cruelty with fake smiles. The people who should have been doing something about it decades ago avoid responsibility.

It’s got killer AI and lonely mars rovers. It’s got sexy dinosaurs. It’s got vaporwave. It’s got sleazy politicians and illuminati ghouls. It’s got a theme song for pansexual pantheists. It’s even got a zombie Elvis. It’s Problem Attic.

To round it off, the album features stylish artwork by KC Green, the creator of Gunshow and the ever-present “This is Fine” comic.

Problem Attic drops digitally on September 25 after FIVE music videos.

Now available for pre-order in 3 stunning vinyl variants, CD, cassette. Each product contains an album commentary and stems of the whole album. ALL PRE-ORDERS will come with a FREE CD of Bazooty’s Nailbiters Anonymous, as well a bonus download of extra songs.

Pre-orders of physical products are expected to ship in November.

Lemon Demon – View-Monster

Lemon Demon’s 2008 album View-Monster makes its vinyl debut this year, and is now available for pre-order from Needlejuice Records.

Remastered by Eldren‘s Tyler Imbrogno, the vinyl and cassette will feature 8 bonus tracks, with the double-CD containing 18 bonus tracks– with the addition of old favorites such as “123456 Pokemon” and “Toy Food.”

“Between The Frames” edition is a zoetrope picture disc containing artwork by Aimkid & Andrew Kepple.

International distribution available from HHV here.

For a limited time, we are indeed offering View-Monster on 8-track, and we have re-opened pre-orders for Spirit Phone on 8-track. The amount that get ordered during this pre-order period is what we’ll make.

Additionally, we are offering a 7″ vinyl record featuring “Something Glowing” on glow-in-the-dark vinyl, or neon red vinyl. This product exists solely so you can listen to the song “Something Glowing” on a glowing record. This 7″ will also contain bonus tracks that won’t be available on the vinyl editions of View-Monster.

The Neon Red variant does not glow in the dark (though it might glow under a blacklight!) and is available for those who prefer sound quality over aesthetics.

View-Monster products are PRE-ORDERS and are expected to ship in November.

Flummox – In Hindsight

ARE YOU A GOOD WITCH OR A BAD WITCH?

Prog-metal pranksters Flummox are back with IN HINDSIGHT, featuring the hit second amendment anthem “Trans Girls Need Guns” along with 4 heavy new cuts.

IN HINDSIGHT is Flummox at their most playful, a whirlwind of chaotic energy centered on the satanic personality of frontwoman Alyson Dellinger. “Good Witch” kicks off the set, backing rock and roll mayhem with big band jazz, while “Bad Witch” and “Holy Ejaculate” pay homage to Mr. Bungle’s tongue-in-cheek bangers. “Excelsior” works nostalgic throwbacks to 70s prog virtuosity into the havoc, packing all the jaw-dropping goodness of a King Crimson epic into a bite-sized 4-and-a-half minutes. Everything culminates in Dellinger’s manic, magnetic performance at the heart of “Trans Girls Need Guns,” a finale as empowering as it is groovy.

Miss the mosh pit? Just light your candles, draw your pentagram and summon Flummox for a damned good time.

IN HINDSIGHT is being released officially on October 16, and will be on CD, cassette, and Halloween-Night blue vinyl with red & orange splatter.

Listen to “Trans Girls Need Guns.

New Spirit Phone Variants: Achievement Award & Skull Mansion

We were blown away that the 2nd pressing of Spirit Phone sold out in less than a year! We’re now doing a 3rd pressing, of which each of those variants can now be pre-ordered. Expect these to be shipping by September.

We had the glow-in-the-dark available for a bit already, but now you can also get the new “normal” variants: “Achievement Award” and “Skull Mansion.”


ACHIEVEMENT AWARD
This variant features a gold disc and a silver disc, each with a blood splatter!

SKULL MANSION
This is a skull-ish set of black & bone white swirled LPs. Think of it as a 2nd generation “Cadaver Candy.” Now the candy is gone and all that remains is… death.

CAUGHT ALIGHT
The new glow-in-the-dark variation.

We are sorry to report that our pressing plant is no longer producing the glow in the dark red pigment. For that reason, all editions of Spirit Phone on glow-in-the-dark vinyl will be pressed on glowing green vinyl instead of glowing red.

Note that this variant is likely to contain a higher level of surface noise.

Update Regarding Spirit Phone on Glow-in-the-Dark Vinyl

We are sorry to report that our pressing plant is no longer producing the glow in the dark red pigment. For that reason, all editions of Spirit Phone on glow-in-the-dark vinyl will be pressed on glowing green vinyl instead of glowing red.

It will still glow in the dark, but it will be green. It will be the same as the glow-in-the-dark edition of Nature Tapes.

We apologize for the inconvenience, and we’re saddened that the records won’t be glowing in Spirit Phone‘s signature red color. However, being that the album has spooky vibes, we still believe that this glowing green color will sufficiently enhance the aesthetics of your listening experience.

If you purchased this edition and wish to cancel your order, you may email us at needlejuicerecords@gmail.com. Please provide your order number. Thank you.

Updates on Nature Tapes and Wiretap

We’re happy to report that after sailing across the Atlantic Ocean (air freight being cancelled due to COVID), our vinyl records of Nature Tapes and Wiretap are arriving to our hands this week! They made it across the ocean and it’s the home stretch now!

Thank you for your patience.

Apparently, air freight is back, and the Burn Pygmalion records will not suffer the same fate of having to spend 4 weeks in the ocean.
