Perfect Pussy are one of the boldest and most intriguing projects to surface in recent years, garnering widespread critical acclaim following a self-released four song cassette-only EP, titled I have lost all desire for feeling and various intoxicating live appearances in the New York DIY Punk scene.
The title track from this single comes from the aforementioned EP and is joined on the b-side by a live recording of Bells, taken from a WNYU radio session in late 2013.
The release of this single follows hot on the heels of the band's debut full length and first release on Brooklyn based label Captured Tracks, Say Yes to Love and gives some of Perfect Pussy's early material the vinyl home it deserves.
Veiled beneath layers of exquisitely abrasive noise, frontwoman Meredith Graves' lyrics are disarming, brutally honest and poetic, possessing a feverish intensity that can only be matched by her electric stage presence.

September Girls are a five piece garage rock group hailing from Dublin City. Once described as "sounds from a transistor radio abandoned in a rural cinema", this is reverb soaked noise pop of the finest order - distant layered harmonies, swirling organ & distorted guitars.
Their sound recreates a "Girls In The Garage"- aware take on Spector's Wall of Sound and 80s and 90s noise bands. Formed in September 2011, the band released a cassette on Scotland's Soft Power label in April 2012, which sold out worldwide within a week.
The follow up to that, a 7 single featuring the tracks Green Eyed and Danny Wood, again on Soft Power Records, was released in Oct 2012 and subsequently sold out within weeks. Less than a month after that, September Girls released a three-track 7" on California label Matinée Recordings, featuring the tracks Wanting More, Hells Bells and Man Chats. Talking is the band's 3rd 7 released by the Cork based label Art For Blind.

The Altered Hours are a 5 piece psych rock band from Cork City, Ireland. Dig Early is their 2nd single following the band's previous outing Sweet Jelly Roll which was recorded in autumn 2012 with Fabian Leseure in Berlin and released in April 2013 on 10 vinyl by A Recordings (Brian Jonestown Massacre, Dirty Beaches). Last year saw The Altered Hours tour the UK and Ireland several times, including appearances at Liverpool Psych Fest, Electric Picnic, shows with Wooden Shjips and Singapore Sling as well as a handful of appearances on the mainland in support of their previous single.
Dig Early is a very Cork affair, with the band opting this time round to record at home with local musician and producer Chris Somers, release the record through independent label Art For Blind (September Girls, The #1s and Wölfbait) and collaborating with The Black Mariah (Triskel Arts Centre) to design artwork for the single.

IN HEAT NOT SORRY is their first full length album, recorded at the Funkhaus studio in Berlin. Following their work with Fabien Leseure on the Sweet Jelly Roll EP (A Recordings) in 2013, plans were made to further explore the potential for capturing the band's intense live energy.
The group returned to Berlin in 2014 and spent three weeks exploring, experimenting and recording with Leseure at the controls. The project began with a great variety of songs and ideas but a unique and cohesive style was quickly decided upon due to an emphasis on live recording. The resulting ten tracks are representative of the group's evolution since their last EP - beginning with a lush psychedelic sound and pushing towards a stark but honest headspace.
This album has clearly been influenced by the dismal but beautiful surroundings of the 1950s Funkhaus studio building (a former DDR radio center) and in many ways IN HEAT NOT SORRY's sound and atmosphere encapsulates the band's ongoing fascination with testing (and sometimes disrupting) that fine balance between tranquility and chaos.
The Altered Hours continue to tour and play festivals across Europe, having also been invited to share the stage with some of their biggest influences, such as the Brian Jonestown Massacre, The Pop Group, Singapore Sling and White Hills.
