PLEASURE SYMBOLS - Pleasure Symbols EP


Pleasure Symbols from Brisbane, Australia is the post punk/synth duo project of Phoebe Paradise and Jasmine Dunn. 
Desolate but not devoid, Pleasure Symbols engulf honest pop music under a sea of slowed, cold synth and bass. Ritualistic vocals perpetually conveying a sense of desperation, but not without fortitude, the bands unembellished restraint continually on show.

This self-titled 4-song debut 12" EP is out on Avant! Records in Europe and Death Valley in Australia. Limited to 500.

Physical copies available HERE 
Digital available HERE


 

PURE GROUND - Giftgarten LP


Pure Ground is a minimal industrial/wave duo formed in Los Angeles in the Spring of 2012.
Making use of a great assortment of analog and digital hardware, Pure Ground creates hard electronics teaming with rhythmic white noise and unsettling melody as the backdrop over which the group explores lyrical themes of present-day dystopian realities, sleeplessness and the supernatural, and the eventual triumph of the natural world over a human civilization in rapid decline.
Not limited to music composition, the band also makes forays into analog video work, much of which can be seen projected onto them during live performances and in album art.

New full-length LP Giftgarten is limited to 300 copies in EU. Comes in thick jacket & printed inner sleeve.

Copies available HERE

YOU. - Bouquet LP


Previously located in NYC, now Detroit-based post-punk outfit YOU. released their first two records on Cult of Youth's Sean Ragon's Blind Prophet Records. Their third LP Sunchaser was released on Dais in 2014. The label properly explains "YOU.’s music up to this point has always pitted its more reflective elements against the austerity of electronics, not so much as to create a warm sound as to invite the listener in as respite from the cold". 

Bouquet is their fourth album and features nine new songs. It is out June 6th on vinyl and digital.
LP comes in printed innersleeve with lyrics. Artwork by Brooklyn-based artist Eddie Martinez.

YOU. unveils new track Graveyard Method Actor


Detroit-based post-punk quartet YOU. will be putting out their fourth album next June 6th.
Bouquet follows their 2014 LP Sunchaser and features nine tracks, one of them being the raw and gorgeously frantic Graveyard Method Actor. Described by the band as "feeling manic behind the world's best poker face," the tune clocks at little over two-and-a-half minutes, working as a sudden yet violent agitation.
Stream it exclusively at The 405.



YOU. releasing new LP


Postpunk outfit YOU. left Brooklyn for the creative (and financial) freedom of Detroit a while back and are set to release their fourth album, Bouquet, on June 6. Following LPs on Blind Prophet and Dais, this marks the band’s first for AVANT! 
A perfect soundtrack to any overcast day in the urban wasteland.
Tour dates with Ritual Howls this summer and stream the title track at Brooklyn Vegan
