View From The Attic Records


View From The Attic Records
This isn't a regular post, but seeing as I get a lot of vinyl heads from the UK checking in, this seems pretty relevant. Two long time friends of mine have just opened up an online distro for punk-rock, emo and a sprinkling of hardcore vinyl. They literally only launched today but have got a real solid starting line up of records from a few labels throughout the Globe. Midnight Funeral Records in Australia and Tiny Engines in Carolina, USA are just a couple of the labels supported at the moment, and there's some brilliant bands on offer. Marathon play a guttural, chaotic blend of hardcore (one of the releases I jumped on and ordered this morning), there's a Milhouse 7",which is so gloriously 90's emo that it's impossible to not love it and Gates are a band from New Jersey who play a wonderful blend of post-rock and emo, and create something pretty incredible to hear, their 1st LP is in stock on a white pressing, also one I ordered without hesitation. Oh! And don't sleep on that Signals Midwest LP, who take a refreshing run at pop-punk and come out with something brilliant and thought provoking with strong melodies and hard hitting verses that fans of Joyce Manor will dig. I won't list everything they've got, I urge you to go check it out, and keep tabs on them as they start to grow. Good dudes, good records.
