August 19 street date. One of the great lost albums of British psychedelia, original copies of Arzachel's 1969 self-titled debut fetch huge sums on the collectors' market and it is not difficult to understand why. Originally released in 1969 on the small Evolution label, this album quite simply contains some of the best psych to ever come out of the UK. However, like so many other great albums of the era, it soon dropped entirely from the radar due to bad promotion. In fact, it may not have ever been rediscovered at all if guitarist Steve Hillage and keyboardist Dave Stewart had not gone on to be so well known. Hillage would soon become famous for his work in Gong, and Stewart would become a legend of British prog with Egg, Hatfield and the North, National Health, and his work with wife Barbara Gaskin in the 1980s. Contains bonus track from a lacquer of the same period. Limited edition of 500 copies on 180 gram white vinyl.

June 17 street date. Non-returnable CD. Mirzadeh is a dark metal quintet hailing from the frozen territory of Alajarvi, Finland. The band has been together since 2000. The base of Mirzadeh's music is cast on midtempo metal with melodic arrangements weaved by lead guitar and keyboards. Mirox' vocal style contains both growling and screaming. In some songs there are also some clean vocals handled by guest musicians. Mirzadeh's lyrics deal with the ancient Finnish world and the people who lived back then. The lyrics draw a picture of the beliefs and fears that the people had in their everyday lives. Not all the beliefs were peaceful when evaluating them through the eyes of a modern man. These tragic and often very fateful beliefs give a dark twist to Mirzadeh's lyrical art.
September 28 street date. 7 tracks of uber-distorted Hardcore on a 12” format. Taking cues from both Italian Hardcore and Midwest off-kilter punk but keeping the rage, anguish and intensity that has become synonymous with Barcelona over the last decade. Hitos y Derrotas sees the band delivering longer songs than on their debut with a more structured sound and new found intensity. Drenched in reverb and very bass dominated, the songs take unexpected turns and reach dirge-like moments at several times, taking you on a wild ride where youthful force-brute meets crashing idealism. Hitos y Derrotas was recorded by Daniel Frutos at La Cova de la Bestia and comes housed in a mind-melting sleeve designed by Cecilia Caldeira. It also includes a lyric Insert designed by singer D. Garceran.
September 3 street date. LIMITED EDITION OF 1000 ONLY ONE-SIDED 1 TRACK 10-INCH with an etching from Yoko Ono on the flip side. RZA of WU-TANG CLAN performs "Greenfield Morning/Seed of Joy/Life Is A Struggle" with Yoko Ono Plastic Ono Band in Los Angeles, 2010. All proceeds benefit The Children's Literacy Society.
February 22 street date. Sparzanza is a textbook example of what hard work can get you. These tenacious rockers have built their success gradually, starting with numerous self-financed EP releases and indie split singles, which eventually scored them their first real record deal. The two albums with French label Water Dragon Records, as good as they were, pretty much flew under everyone's radar. The two successive albums, 'Banisher Of The Light' and 'In Voodoo Veritas' made Sparzanza something of a local hero. Spearheading the Scandinavian roots rock revival with the likes of Volbeat and Mustasch, Sparzanza hit it big in their native Sweden and even more so in the neighboring Finland, largely due to a succession of single cuts Before My Blackened Eyes, My World Of Sin and Black Heart, each of which received heavy airplay on Finland’s nation-wide Radio Rock channel. 'Folie Á Cirq' presents a rolling thunder of riffs, dynamic, driving beats and a barrage of bass-lines that will use your cojones as punching bags! Iced with Fredrik Weileby's testosterone-laden vocals and impeccable ear for catchy melodies, 'Folie à Cirq' lays down 11 songs, each better than the previous one, yet all so damn good that your fave tune will change every time you give the disc a spin.
July 13 street date. Double vinyl LP pressing. The fifth release from Sparzanza - Folie à Cinq from 2011 - is now being released on double vinyl. Three sided with a nice voodoo doll etch on the fourth side! This album was released on Spinefarm Records in 2011 and includes the hit songs "Temple Of The Red-Eyed Pigs" and "Follow Me".
