Lemon Demon – Spirit Phone – New Vinyl Variants

We weren’t going to let this record stay out of print for too long! Neil Cicierega’s occult classic Spirit Phone is coming back in 2 new color variants: “Burning Eyes” (red and black color-in-color) and “Reaganomics Neon” (neon purple & pink) editions.

As with the first pressing, it includes 5 bonus tracks and the download card with access to Neil’s album commentary.

Bringing to mind the playfully ghoulish work of new wave acts like Oingo Boingo, this album presents its dark themes with mischievous relish. Anthony Fantano of The Needle Drop included it in his Best of 2016 list with an 8/10 rating, praising its clever lyrics, high energy, and catchy songwriting.

This PRE-ORDER of the new color variants is expected to ship in December. CDs and cassettes are available as well.

8-Tracks Update #2

Yes, it’s been a long time. We know these are totally overdue… thank you all for your patience, as getting these made has been a lot more of a wild ride than we had anticipated.

But we think they’re turning out pretty amazing. When you have them in your hands, we hope you’ll find this crazy project we decided to embark on to have been worth the wait.

Pics from the manufacturer– these are the only two albums we had yet to unveil pictures of: Goodbye My 4-Track and The People’s Choice Music.

We’re near the finish line. We’re as eager to get our hands on these as you are.

If you missed the previous updates, here are pictures of the rest:

Flummox – Intellectual Hooliganism PRE-ORDER

Flummox is proud to announce the release of Intellectual Hooliganism via Needlejuice Records. The progressive metal group from Nashville have crafted an epic ode to outcasts, the anxious & the queer. This new record is a relentless barrage of heavy psychedelic riffs with surreal detours into methlab hoedowns and opossum biology.

Now available for pre-order HERE on cassette and purple-with-rainbow-splatter LP, Intellectual Hooliganism’s physical release captures Flummox’s technicolor chaos.

Intellectual Hooliganism’s 13 cuts owe as much to the likes of Mr. Bungle and Frank Zappa as it does to today’s hellish political climate and the dysphoria & daily struggles of the band members’ lives. “This album took quite a variety of bodily fluids to make, & to see it released in a way we envisioned from the beginning of this process is incredibly satisfying. We all hope it holds up.”

The album can be streamed on Bandcamp and Soundcloud. Both physical editions of the album will come with a digital download featuring a bonus album commentary. Flummox will celebrate the album’s release with a free concert on September 21st at Little Harpeth Brewing in Nashville.

Raptor Vomit – 10 Years of Zero Integrity

The long-awaited split between the two greatest punk bands in the world that both happen to be fronted by Steve.

Legend has it, the A side of this cassette was recorded one night when the computers used to record Regdar and the Fighters were broken, but the raw energy of aggressive 10-second punk outbursts on the drum set such as “Support Your Local Church and Radicalize it From Within” and “I Put the Narc In Anarchism” just needed to be preserved. The B-side of the cassette was recorded digitally in a single night, with minimal equipment and maximum booze.

“This is a completely valid piece of art,” said Needlejuice co-founder Austin Ash Lemon when the album was pitched as a “shitpost tape.” And so here it is, on a smoke-tinted translucent cassette. Does the Dolby noise reduction make any difference? Probably not. Limited to 50 copies.

SYCDVK – Lurking Earthlings

Short and sweet, Denver’s SYCDVK (pronounced sik-duck) transport you to another galaxy with their latest psychedelic jazz-rock EP, Lurking Earthlings.

8-Tracks Update

It’s been a long process, but the 8-tracks from our big First-Week-of-April sale are finally coming together. We’re nearing the end of them worked on, and we were experiencing delays because our manufacturer (theINFINITIpool) has been renovating their facilities over the last few weeks. Unfortunately, getting the 8-tracks made has been taking a lot longer than the amount of time we had originally projected. We’re really sorry about the delay. However, when we finally have them all, we think they’ll be really cool and we hope everyone will find the wait to be worth it.

Our manufacturer has sent us a few pictures to show the progress:

All things considered, we think they’re coming along beautifully, and we hope everybody who ordered these will be satisfied with the way this project turns out. Thank you for sticking with us this far. This wouldn’t have been possible without the help of our friends at theINFINITIpool.
