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.

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.

Spirit Phone on GLOW IN THE DARK Vinyl!

CAUGHT ALIGHT: The glow-in-the-dark red edition of Spirit Phone is now available for pre-order!

This is phase two of getting all 3 of our current Lemon Demon vinyl releases available on glow-in-the-dark vinyl!

This glow-in-the-dark red edition is the same fundamental vinyl release as the previous pressings, but on a snazzy glowing red to spook you out while listening!

Glow-in-the-dark vinyl may contain more surface noise than standard vinyl. It looks damn cool though.

This PRE-ORDER is expected to ship in September.

The Scary Jokes – Burn Pygmalion!!! Vinyl/Cassette/CD Pre-Order

Blending 8-bit aesthetics with soul-baring queer bedroom indie, New Jersey-based synthpop project The Scary Jokes is the brainchild of singer-songwriter Liz Lehman. Their signature style of gentle, upbeat psychedelia contrasted with pointed, introspective lyrics earned 2016’s April Fools considerable buzz in the internet underground.

On their 2019 followup, Burn Pygmalion!!! A Better Guide to Romance, Lehman weaves a concept album around insecurity and romantic alienation, telling the story of a journalist ruminating on her relationship as she housesits for her movie-star girlfriend. The album expanded the group’s sound, complimenting Lehman’s electronic production with guitarwork by new band member Juniper Abernathy and a guest performance by Louie Zong. Featuring the song “Community Gardens,” Burn Pygmalion cemented The Scary Jokes as one of the most exciting new artists of the 2010s.

Needlejuice Records is proud to bring Burn Pygmalion to physical formats. In addition to CD and cassette, the album will be available on colored vinyl in two configurations: a green\pink half-and-half and a fiery-red galaxy. The album has been remastered for physical media by Angel Marcloid.

Chinese Hackers – (Wiretap)

Chinese Hackers’ (w i r e t a p) reinvent the vaporwave genre by creating a new style: vaporgoth. Before making vaporwave music, Chinese Hackers had recorded industrial music under several different aliases. Using those dark and noisy inspirations, the sounds of industrial grind and vaporwave birthed a new sound with a bleak spin.

Now available pre-order on two limited edition vinyl variants, cassette and minidiscs.
