The romanticization of life's simpler things always leads to trouble, and perhaps that's why Floridian multi-instrumentalist Logan Rivera lets that fact explode, verbatim, late in his latest catharsis. Despite some personal and lyrical anguish, this is a document put forth by a tightly-constructed project only slightly hindered by its topical distress. Rivera composed this record in the wake of loss. Dreams of Suffocation stands as an auditory dedication to his late dog Mazy. Includes download code.

For the release of their third record, Jet Black joins ODT Records (CAN), I.Corrupt (EU) and Skeletal Lightning (US). "...dynamically urgent, sweepingly expansive epics that meld the post-rock, shoegaze, and space rock genres." - The Big Takeover "...herculean shoegaze. Distorted, effect heavy riffs reign supreme, while pounding, almost motorik drums, lock the track into a relentless groove. The shimmering vocals put you into a trance, off setting the quasi proto- punk/alt-rock with glorious space rock indebted melodies." - New Noise Magazine Pressed on limited edition black vinyl, limited to 200 copies, with digitaol download.

REPTILIAN, THE - END PATHS
Kalamazoo, MI's math rock/screamo act The Reptilian make their Skeletal Lightning and Community Records debut with End Paths - out on September 16, 2016. Progressing from their roots on Count Your Lucky Stars and musical ancestors such as Envy and Slint, The Reptilian situates among contemporary acts such as Loma Prieta and Battles without appearing derivative of them. End Paths is, for its grace and rage, a swanlike anthem crafted emotionally and intelligently to never soften too much for punk crowds nor lose the indie crowd with simplicity. Eight passionately shouted calls from within rapid structures of dynamically spry post-hardcore melody and flowing, adrenal rhythm. Limited edition of 175 on colored vinyl.

TWO KNIGHTS - EFFING
Following the release of their debut full-length Shut Up, along with an EP and a barrage of splits alongside Empire! Empire! (I Was a Lonely Estate), The World Is A Beautiful Place and I Am No Longer Afraid To Die, The Reptilian, Innards, and more, Effing finds Texas duo Two Knights navigating hairpin turns with a manic math-rock technicality, at times screeching to an abrupt halt, but the band's relentless and frantic energy always keep their songs moving forward. While Two Knights' genre-defying songs often walk the line between extremes, even their heaviest moments rarely feel outwardly aggressive. Vocalist/guitarist Parker Lawson's honest lyrics tell the tale of the cyclical pattern of anxiety, but you don't have to listen too closely to get a sense of their inner battles. The music itself often bursts and thrashes alongside each and every emotion. Engineered, mixed, and mastered by Michael Briggs at Civil Audio. Features screen-printed B-side artwork by Jerrod Landon Porter (of Montreal, Kishi Bashi). Pressed on limited edition Aqua Blue vinyl, limited to 300 copies. Includes download code.

WILLIAM BONNEY - ALL TEN (180 GR)
Born from the ashes of seminal Midwest emo bands Merchant Ships and Midwest Pen Pals, William Bonney is an angry, earnest expression of youth-a time capsule of love and loss colored by an all-consuming sense of heart. Despite their brief and volatile tenure as an active band, the songs of William Bonney persist and continue to find their way into the ears of listeners new and old, wide and far. All Ten brings together the entirety of the band's discography: the Good Vibes EP, their side of the split 7" with Chicago's Droughts, and the one-off single "Dope Castle." Fully remixed and mastered by original engineer, producer, and drummer Mike Kenway, and including a new interpretation of the infamous paper bag head by illustrator Em Randall, All Ten is the final and ultimate celebration of William Bonney's lasting impact.

Produced by Seth Manchester (Lightning Bolt, Battles, The Body, The Hotelier). Pressed on limited edition Clear vinyl, limited to 200 copies. Stroffolino's ultimate dream was to find a way to combine his love of comedy with the incredible DIY music scene he grew up in, so he came up with an idea: to release a split LP with... himself.

CURTAIL - ALL YOUR LUCK
Recorded and produced by guitarist/keyboardist/vocalist Ben Hendricks in his Akron home studio-and mixed and mastered by Tim Gerak (Six Parts Seven) in Denver at his Mammoth Cave Studios-the record contains plenty of '90s touchstones: distortion-ashed guitars, tightly wound hooks and intricate rhythms. Built to Spill, mellower The Dismemberment Plan and early Promise Ring are certainly sonic touchstones. But what separates All Your Luck from other releases is Curtail's songwriting vision and commitment to digging beyond superficial '90s rock signifiers.

GILLIAN CARTER - DREAMS OF SUFFOCATION
The romanticization of life's simpler things always leads to trouble, and perhaps that's why Floridian multi-instrumentalist Logan Rivera lets that fact explode, verbatim, late in his latest catharsis. Despite some personal and lyrical anguish, this is a document put forth by a tightly-constructed project only slightly hindered by its topical distress. Rivera composed this record in the wake of loss. Dreams of Suffocation stands as an auditory dedication to his late dog Mazy. Includes download code.

Following the release of their debut full-length Shut Up, along with an EP and a barrage of splits alongside Empire! Empire! (I Was a Lonely Estate), The World Is A Beautiful Place and I Am No Longer Afraid To Die, The Reptilian, Innards, and more, Effing finds Texas duo Two Knights navigating hairpin turns with a manic math-rock technicality, at times screeching to an abrupt halt, but the band's relentless and frantic energy always keep their songs moving forward. While Two Knights' genre-defying songs often walk the line between extremes, even their heaviest moments rarely feel outwardly aggressive. Vocalist/guitarist Parker Lawson's honest lyrics tell the tale of the cyclical pattern of anxiety, but you don't have to listen too closely to get a sense of their inner battles. The music itself often bursts and thrashes alongside each and every emotion. Engineered, mixed, and mastered by Michael Briggs at Civil Audio.

WILLIAM BONNEY - ALL TEN
Born from the ashes of seminal Midwest emo bands Merchant Ships and Midwest Pen Pals, William Bonney is an angry, earnest expression of youth-a time capsule of love and loss colored by an all-consuming sense of heart. Despite their brief and volatile tenure as an active band, the songs of William Bonney persist and continue to find their way into the ears of listeners new and old, wide and far. All Ten brings together the entirety of the band's discography: the Good Vibes EP, their side of the split 7" with Chicago's Droughts, and the one-off single "Dope Castle." Fully remixed and mastered by original engineer, producer, and drummer Mike Kenway, and including a new interpretation of the infamous paper bag head by illustrator Em Randall, All Ten is the final and ultimate celebration of William Bonney's lasting impact.

CURTAIL - ALL YOUR LUCK
Recorded and produced by guitarist/keyboardist/vocalist Ben Hendricks in his Akron home studio-and mixed and mastered by Tim Gerak (Six Parts Seven) in Denver at his Mammoth Cave Studios-the record contains plenty of '90s touchstones: distortion-ashed guitars, tightly wound hooks and intricate rhythms. Built to Spill, mellower The Dismemberment Plan and early Promise Ring are certainly sonic touchstones. But what separates All Your Luck from other releases is Curtail's songwriting vision and commitment to digging beyond superficial '90s rock signifiers.

YOON YUNG/COREY STROFFOLINO - EVERYTHING'S REAL
First solo music + comedy release from La Dispute guitarist Corey Stroffolino. Mastered by Heba Kadry at Timeless Mastering (Future Islands, Slowdive, Alex G). Produced by Seth Manchester (Lightning Bolt, Battles, The Body, The Hotelier). Stroffolino's ultimate dream was to find a way to combine his love of comedy with the incredible DIY music scene he grew up in, so he came up with an idea: to release a split LP with... himself. Thus, the split between the soulful, introspective indie-rock of Yoon Yung and the rib-cracking comedy of Corey Stroffolino was born.
