Warm Bodies - Burnin' Orange CS

The year is 2016. And from the depths of this death trap of a year has come the best band in contemporary punk; Warm Bodies. Formed from a crew of complete weirdos in Kansas City, Missouri, some of them were in other bands but at this point you only need to focus on this band and how INCREDIBLE they are. 

So here dear internet people punks is the bod's tour tape "Burnin' Orange" featuring four new bangers and a Rocky Horror mash-up sent from the bowels of hell. But I mean, don't take my dumb ass word for it listen to this and bask into their hellacious glory.

Skeleton - Tour CS

Skeleton is best band from Austin right now. fight me.

Karger Traum - Alles Auf Einmal CS

So on night one of Noids tour in OKC, I found this tape in Ross' distro. I had no idea what this was, all I did know is that I wanted it. This artwork called out to me. So after buying it Ross explained that it was Tmac of American Hate's solo Synth project from when he was teaching in Germany.

What I got was a great tape of slow, pulsating dark ambient synth hell. Kind of flows in the style of 80's soundtracks, with Tmac howling over the rhythm in German, Highly recommended.

Manneqin - 3 Songs + 3 More

I posted this band's Cassingle in last year's round-up post. Part of me thought this band went kapuut when Judah bounced from NWI to Bloomington. Well, oh boy was I wrong. 

On Noids tour I ran into Judah in Bloomington and copped this tape from him there. I was also surprised to hear this was a fully functioning live band now. This tape continues along the lines set by the cassingle and expands upon it. It's good, just download it already.

Lemonade CS

New blood Minneapolis Hardcore. Missed their set at Everything is Not OK and still sore about it. It's fast and it's snotty. Just download it now and spank some hams.

Megalith Grave - Black Enmity 7"

So, I figured this would be online at this point? Or I haven't searched the web enough. Idk. I bought this in the 2014 Youth Attack update. Very cold and evil Black Metal with touches of synth to add to the layers of frost. Tour De Garde's name is on it so you know it's good.

Dog Days Of Summer Mix

It's been a while since I posted a mix no-one will listen to!

Check it out, all the spankin'est nublud hardcore and ponk that is true blue and sick as hell, coupled into a narrative from one of the most underrated cartoons ever. Someone out there will think its dumb

Marty's World CS

What the hell is up nerds???? Well it's been a minute. Life is strange, depression is hell and the world easily can bear down on you but whatever. You are here for the tunes, am I right my dudes? Hell yeah. 

On the subject of this tape, first of all I would like to say Marty is my hero and I love the dude (so much I have a tattoo now that is a reference to one of his bands). So what we have here is Marty's World a collection of the dude's most recent bands. Some I knew, others this is my first hearing. Last time I was in STLUSA he was telling me of his plans to unleash this on the world, and bless Baby's World for stocking up copies of this. 

So there's songs from Martin's most "renound" projects to date, The Dumpers and The Calories. A new track from possibly one of my favorite new bands that I'm dying to see, Mala Leche. If you haven't heard the first tape from Mala Leche, do yourself a favor and jam that puppy. A new, and final hit, from Lars. But the real juicy shit is in the new bands on this. I'd heard about Fried E.M. mostly because it was the new band of Jack from Lard Boys. I'd heard Marty talk about The Wad earlier this summer too which was cool to see them wind up on this. But BB Eye was the real surprise on here that caught my eye, featuring vocalist of other Missouri hit maker Warm Bodies. In any case, new essential jams from your STLUSA slime baron. Hit this shit and hit it hard.

Also got some more hit makers slippin' and a slidin' down the pipes, keep them peepers peeled.
