    Bruit Direct Disques presents the 1st lp by Badaboum, french all-star girl group that includes Krine (Headwar), Armelle (The Dreams) and Solene (Dudu geva) and is affiliated to the famous Grande Triple Alliance de l'Est posse (Ah Kraken, Feeling of love, Scorpion Violente).

    They play a form of post punk music akin to Liliput/Kleenex and Malaria adding their own reverbed idiosyncracies and eerie organ lines, chanting in indecipherable italian, mock german and plain french.

    Taking turns on drums and blowing thru severed reeds, Badaboum will bring you as much joy as chaos.

    Solo project by one Lise Sutter who has been active in the Geneva/Leipzig axis that includes Couteau Latex and the Staches, an all women band with two bass mixing very early New Order and screechy synthed ESG.

    They have the energy. They have the spit. We have seen them play, in disguise, smiling at us as they were pulsing thru their short melodic punk outbursts like watching Malaria or the Bush Tetras or maybe even Prag Vec.

    1. File The Feeling
    2. Strange Afternoon At The Swimming Pool
    3. Dust Dries On Its Rests
    4. Property To Property

    £9.99

    Bruit Direct Disques proudly announce our fourth release of 2015 with a new four track 12" record by Mouse Sluts (Dan Melchior, Graham Lambkin, Letha Rodman Melchior and Glen) playing at glorious 45rpm.

    The music contained on this E.P. came about almost by accident. During a period of intense correspondence between Dan Melchior and Graham Lambkin, a story from a Folkestone area newspaper tickled the warped funny bones of the duo and gave birth to some lyrics that were dictated into a recording device ... next thing everyone involved knew something resembling a song (in some respects) was born, and was soon joined by three more.

    The wonderful keyboard talents of Letha Rodman Melchior were pivotal in birthing the most 'musical' of the tracks 'Vaccanti', and giving it its poignant and unexpected closer. Glen Rodman Melchior (who is currently having his claim to be 'most recorded budgie' reviewed by the Guinness book of records) lent his indispensable and unmistakable vocals to 'Mowerbath Man',though he could easily be mistaken for a chimpanzee in this context.

    A record without too many signposts or safe footholds, we hope it will scratch that itch you didn't know you even had.

    A flaming tribute to the peaks of low budget Italian crime novels and to synthwave as lubed-up as we need, poisoned with synthetic drugs and the rust from circuit boards, Scorpion Violente are the epitome of everything the entrepreneurial divertimento generation hate.

    Feeling up their synths with all the vigor of a manic depressive on a downward slope, our two hosts emit their dirty feedback-washed discharge, adding Ich bin and Le Syndicat Electronique to their holiday activity books.

    The tempo is even slower than before, with echoes more distant than In Aeternum Vale and Ike Yard dripping from their stabbing loops. Litanies almost crashing into chasms ooze in this cold cyclo-rhythmic blues, sure to make Alan Vega turn in his grave.

    Sick, sordid old crooning spat like bile from a wounded animal, fairy tales of ordinary madness, everyday nightmares and steel-reinforced rock ab from Lorraine, drifting in the cold gas-clouds of sulfur-laced heroin.

    These dudes are not f**king around, they go all the way, no remorse. Life rules most when it sucks, and maybe it's right there, in the firmament of famine, in the atrium of deserted factories, where the last vestiges of poetry survive. They sure kept us stewing since their first EP, but it was well worth the wait.

    The Frightening Lights 'The Frightening Lights'

    £15.99

    First Lp by sombre australian chanteuse Elizabeth Downey and instrumentalist Dan Hawkins.

    9 bruised vignettes that will take you to the scraped bottom of love. Soft, caressing and subtly disturbing, Frightening Lights’ songs move like menace through fog.  Singer Elizabeth Downey says she first envisioned the songs as a kind of deathbed confession, their violence is carefully suppressed, modulated perhaps through long penitence.  Shreds of instrumental sound – a funeral organ, an off-kilter accordion, discordant bowing on a borrowed danbo – flit in and out of the peripheries, creating eerie, flickery landscapes around Downey’s sleepy murmurs.

    Downey formed Frightening Lights with her partner Dan Hawkins in 2007 after a sojourn in Russia, where she went to study fine arts and returned with a fascination for Russian and Polish folk music. Returning home to Melbourne, she found herself as drawn to Slavic influences – including the Russian poet Bulat Okudzhava and Polish singer Slawa Przybylska – as to rock artists like The Triffids, Rowland Howard and Marianne Faithfull. Back in Melbourne, Downey and Hawkins began recording at home on an enormous, two-inch reel-to-reel recording deck, working and reworking their spare material.  Two of the duo’s songs appeared on Melbourne compilations- The Warm Cupboard from Albert’s Basement label in 2009 and the Swan V Raptor on Dan Lewis’ Special Awards Records in 2010.  

    The rest evolved gradually into the dream-like textures of this debut full-length. Downey sings and plays guitar on this debut, while Hawkins mans a rack of keyboard instruments – a Farfisa, a Hammond and an eerie Conn organ – as well as bass.  There are no drums on the album, almost no sense of time at all, as melodies float like smoke over blasted territories. Downey’s lyrics trace elliptical connections between the novels she reads, the films she sees and the ordinary experiences of daily life. 

    The opening “Pere LaChaise” recalls a hazy interval in Paris, where Downey, sick with pneumonia, wandered nonetheless through the famous cemetery, deathly ill.  “The Return of Genghis Khan” conflates her fascination with the Mongol warlord, a kitten that she once named after him and a romantic spat with her partner into a single, slow moving fever dream. Artist Earl Kuck calls the Frightening Lights "almost Bad Seeds-like with female vox,” and this self-titled debut has, indeed, some of the same eerie, subdued resonance as Cave’s recent We Know Who You Are. 

    If you like your menace soft, wrapped in lullaby sweetness and still profoundly unsettling, turn on the Frightening Lights.

    Thigh Master 'Early Times'

    Thigh Master have been mainstays of Brisbane’s thriving underground guitar scene for years now, building up a formidable reputation for both their fierce live shows and their early recorded output: their first two singles Head Of The Witch (2014) and Songs To Wipe Your Mouth To (2015) both sold out their initial runs after charming fans both in Australia and abroad with their urgent and catchy tales of inner-city malaise.

    On the live front Thigh Master have already played with Guitar Wolf and The Coathangers in Japan, sold out their own shows in Tokyo, supported the likes of Ty Segall, Ariel Pink, The Clean, Real Estate and Courtney Barnett back in Australia and made countless interstate forays from their Queensland home base.

    Now Thigh Master are upping the ante considerably with this release of their killer debut long-player, Early Times – recorded and mixed by Blank Realm guitarist Luke Walsh.

    Compelling new single Company is a compulsive burst of yearning and frustration that’s the perfect calling card to herald an exciting new chapter for this most intrepid and intriguing of emerging guitar bands. Once more Ford and co. turn this introspection and angst into high art with another infectious offering which is sure to turn heads in all the right places.

    “I haven’t been excited about guitar pop like this in a while, transporting a presence of Polvo/Archers-style string bend + huge riff from some 8000 miles away, familiar but still vital, and given exuberant, shook-up life.” Still-Single (Doug Mosurock).

    Brisbane Cousins Robert Vagg (Vocals) and Dan McGirr (Guitars) return with their second Lp, augmented by the presence of Natasha Buchanan, now published by Bruit Direct Disques. Their first record was privately pressed in an edition of 100 precious copies.

    2. Visions Of The Night
    3. Emboldened
