HP ZINKER - SINGLES 1989-1994 (BOX SET)
A vinyl-singles-club featuring the cult-band HP Zinker. Hans Platzgumer's legendary grunge band was formed in 1989 in New York by two Austrians and established itself quickly in NYC's noise scene. Without pretense, they shared the stage with such bands as Sonic Youth, Ween, Helmet, Lemonheads and the Jon Spencer Blue Explosion. J Mascis drummed with them, Evan Dando sang with them and every month they played the stage of CBGB's. Two now-legendary US indie labels were founded just for them. Both Matador and Thrill Jockey's 001 catalogue numbers are HP Zinker records. In 1990 they signed with the London-based label Fire Records. They released five studio albums, countless singles & bootlegs and even received a Grammy nomination. In 1994, after five turbulent years of endless touring and drug excesses Zinker broke up in the middle of a European tour. To this day Hans Platzgumer has vehemently refused a reunion. Most Zinker releases are no longer available. Offering remedy to this deplorable state of affairs, comes Noise Appeal's limited edition subscription-only HP Zinker-Reissue-Box. Limited to 180 copies. Silkscreened box & covers. Discography sheet, stickers, button, essay book, photo-magazine, usb stick incl. mp3s and live video recordings from WUK Vienna, KAPU Linz, CBGBs New York.

ASH MY LOVE - MONEY
When you listen to ASH MY LOVE, it's hard to believe that they are "just" a duo, their energy surprising the listener in every song. Andreas Dauböck (drums, guitar, vocals) and Ursula Winterauer (bass, vocals) are proof that the old Rock'n'Roll saying "less is more" is true to the core. After all, reduction and concentration are the most important virtues of every songwriter. By following these rules, the duo delivers a dirty counterdraft to the baroque congestion of today's digital auto-tune-pop. Consistently, both have passed on using any digital technology while producing "Money" - on all levels. From the effect machines to the recording on tape and the cut on vinyl records, everything was done with the help of analoge devices, which means: no possibility to cut on computers after the recordings are over. Due to this self-inflicted restriction, ASH MY LOVE was able to focus on the main thing: expressing their energy with the most direct sound ever.

COUSCOUS W/ BORIS HAUF - EISEN
Couscous is Andreas Ledl (clarinet, electric bass), Ralph Wakolbinger (drums, percussion), Martin Max Offenhuber (electronics, ghosttube, saz) and Thomas Binder-Reisinger (guitar, guzli). An Austrian group who have two earlier releases out on Pumpkin Records released in 2006 ('Couscous') and 2013 ('Trans'). Also they did much collaboration, with Damo Suzuki, Thollem McDonas (!) and many others. Boris Hauf, also from Austria, already participated on 'Trans' and is now again a natural partner to work with. Also Bob Donc guests on one track, playing zurna flute and field recordings on 'Lord Skeleton Dance'. What is Couscous about? They produce pompous, pulsating vehicles of massive sound. Heavy and loud music, departing from a rock and punk attitude. Some of the tracks move into sound research. Others are hammering, rhythm-driven entities. They serve their aggressive music raw on your plate. Either you like it, or not. They incorporate many different influences of (kraut) rock, improvisation, noise, sound collage, etc. Sometimes leading up to surprising twists and turns. No doubt they are an adventurous unit, seeking for the extreme.

HELLA COMET - LOCUST VALLEY
Hella Comet are from Graz and have a female lead singer. That alone is supercool. In September 2016, they released their latest and probably best work "Locust Valley". This also is supercool. Many songs have catchy tunes, as they move from shoegaze-stuff and mesmerizing post-rock, and rather rely on enough intense melodies and the impressive voice of singer and bass-player Lea. No worries though, the music is still based on the powerful noise-grunge-rock-scaffolding. (BEEHY.PE)

HELLA COMET - WILD HONEY
Hella Comet are an Austrian band with influences that stretch from the obvious (shoegaze/90s alt rock) to the unexpected (mid-90s britpop). The shoegaze element is there from the off, it's all soaring guitars and Cocteau Twins-esque vocals floating in and out at points. However, Hella Comet's oeuvre is a lot more spiky than that suggests. They have some quite metallic elements in there, think Sonic Youth's Silver Rocket and you have an idea of how wild they can be... This is an excellent album, fans of Sonic Youth, Explosions In The Sky, Monarch! and even alt rockers will be all over this. It's that good. (NINEHERTZ.CO.UK)

IT'S EVERYBODY ELSE - NEW RELIGION
The story of electro-industrial-noise band It's Everyone Else goes back to 2009, when a series of coincidences led to Lucijan Prelog and Pika Golob finding common ground in intense electronic music and old-school video games. What followed was a multitude of concerts, the acclaimed debut album Is It Me?, tours at home and abroad, and, after being noticed at the Waves Vienna showcase festival last year, a proper label - Austrian Noise Appeal Records.

IT'S EVERYONE ELSE - HEAVEN IS AN EMPTY ROOM
Hailing from Ljubljana in Slovenia the duo of Pika Golob and Lucijan Prelog describe themselves as "Too hardcore for the electro kids, too electro for the hardcore kids." This may prove a bit of a quandary for some listeners but it makes little difference for me as 'Heaven Is An Empty Room' has proven a pretty damn good and formidable listen since it arrived at the tail end of the year. Apparently due to the political climate they decided to shelve original recordings and went back to the drawing board with this being the result. It certainly has an agitated feel no doubt spurred by discontent and the result has possibly made it all the harder and more abrasive for it. (AVENOCTUM.COM)

LEHNEN - REACHING OVER ICE AND WAVES
"This is the perfect combination between Post-Rock and Post-Metal with many doom and noise influences and a couple of vocals in some songs. And while I normally don't like vocals in Post-Rock that much, I must say that they are a true winner with this band; they are that GOOD ! This is one of those albums that makes it impossible to pick a favorite song because the whole thing is like a emotional rollercoaster ride, you never get enough and experience so many thoughts and feelings while listening to this collection of outstanding tunes." October US tour dates announced so far: 01/10 - Lincoln NE - Duffys Tavern 04/10 - Bloomington IN - The Bishop 13/10 - Louisville KY - Magnolia Bar 14/10 - St. Louis MO - Foam 16/10 - Wichita KS - Kirbys Beer Store 17/10 - Denver CO - 7th Circle Music Collective

LIKE ELEPHANTS - ONEIRONAUT (W/CD)
The dreamy, ambient and partly mystical sound of this band is based on simple pop melodies that are steadily highlighted by generous reverbs. These songs convey different kinds of atmospheric pictures, which range from joie de vivre to euphoria and from dreaminess to melancholy. Exuberance often alternates with more quiet parts, by what life itself is described - in all its facets and colors.

TRACKER - RULE OF THREE
tracker is gonna blast you with their kind of art-noise-cum-rock mixture and pull you gently on a drift into the psychedelic. From within, hints of desert rock waft forth. A dime bag pulled out during a DIY generator party out by Palm Desert (think: less tye-dye, more Stooges). Gracing the album are a whole host of kindred spirits, with improvisations from: Martin Philadelphy; Gregor Tischberger (the maybe men, Kreisky); Wolfram Leitner (the maybe men, M185) and Dave Schmidt (Sula Bassana, Electric Moon, Krautzone). Kenneth Winkler, of Kentrix fame, did the mastering. Armin List did the artwork.
