Gestures

Bad Taste EP

    Punk Slime Recordings are proud to announce that Stockholm’s finest garage punk band Gestures have joined their roster, with a new EP titled Bad Taste due on November 17 on 7” vinyl and digitally. Originally the solo project of guitarist/vocalist Sick Vic, Gestures have now expanded into a trio with Blom joined by Don Jovi on bass and Simon on drums and the Bad Taste EP is the first full band recordings from Gestures.

    Gestures first appeared last spring with the debut EP Shattered Mind, a lo-fi garage punk explosion recorded, written and performed by Sick Vic in his living room, which we had on repeat for most of last year and which was recently given the vinyl treatment by Stockholm garage rock institution Push My Buttons.

    One of the best live bands we’ve seen in a long time, Gestures have been playing around Scandinavia, mixing festivals with DIY basement venues, blowing my minds wherever they go and playing with bands such as Demon’s Claws, Uranium Club and Girls Names. The Bad Taste EP was recorded and produced by Martin Savage at Human Audio in Stockholm and features three new tracks, including new single “Kicks”, from Gestures alongside a cover of live favourite “For Your Love” (originally recorded by The Yardbirds).

    Les Big Byrd

    Mannen Utanför / Two Man Gang

      Way back in 2017, we put out Les Big Byrd's now-classic single "Two Man Gang". It's been a huge hit ever since, both in Sweden and abroad, and actually just hit a million plays on Spotify! To celebrate, we've pressed a very special double A-side 7" single, featuring new version of the song, this time with the lyrics rewritten into English, following how well the version went down live, on their last UK tour. The flipside of the 7" is "Mannen Utanför", which is also one the highlight tracks from their recent LP "Iran Iraq IKEA".

      Sudakistan

      Automaton / Quiero Ser Tu Perro

        Stockholm quintet Sudakistan return with a brand new double A-sided 7” featuring “Automaton” and “Quiero Ser Tu Perro”, a Spanish language translation of The Stooges’ classic “I Wanna Be Your Dog”.

        Featuring the band’s trademark blend of punk, garage rock, psychedelia and latino rhythms “Quiero Ser Tu Perro” finds bassist Maikel Gonzalez taking on lead vocals.

        “Quiero Ser Tu Perro” was initally recorded during the sessions for last year’s acclaimed second LP Swedish Cobra and “Automaton” was recorded in January-February 2019, both at Studio Rymden, Stockholm with producer Daniel Bengtson (who the band worked with on Swedish Cobra).

        Shitkid

        Detention

          ShitKid, the project of Swedish artist Åsa Söderqvist, is back with its second album [DETENTION], via PNKSLM Recordings (Les Big Byrd, Miss World, Sudakistan etc).

          Moving on from her lo-fi pop beginnings [DETENTION] finds Söderqvist and bassist Lina Ericsson recording in a studio for the first time, offering up a fully fleshed full band sound veering into pop-punk and alternative rock territory. After spending 2018 touring behind her This Is It EP, mixing headline shows and support tours with the likes of the Melvins and US Girls, ShitKid is undoubtedly one of Europe’s most exciting young acts.

          Cherry Pickles

          Cherry Pickles Will Harden Your Nipples

            Conceived over a bucks fizz binge in Birmingham UK early 2018, Cherry Pickles comes at you like the base-ment band you always wanted to start. Priscila B brings from Brazil her love of early Tropicalia and the kind of ‘let’s be bad’ attitude that can only come from a land chock full of Catholic guilt. Mimi B brings her love of stripped down, bare essential rhythm. If two drums are good enough for Peggy O’Neill then they should definitely be good enough for you. Together they bonded over a mutual love of 50s malt-shop-pop, 60s minimalist garage, no wave, fuzz and all forms of outsider art. ‘Art damaged’ isn’t a slur, it’s a compliment. Anything lost in translation with this transatlantic duo only doubles the charm.Played entirely on thrift store instruments with the kind of enthusiasm and naiveté severely lacking in a lot of today’s music this is not some clever re-imagining or ironic take on lo-fi, this is the real deal! Technique and skill be damned, the message comes through strong and that message is “Don’t think about it, just cross the line and enjoy it.” All rolled together with gum, glitter and stickytape in the studio by fellow Bir-mingham noisemakers Black Mekon, the result is slightly wrong-sounding but infectious one-minute-ga-rage-pop with gusto. One guitar, 2 drums, the basement band you always wanted to start. 

            Arre! Arre!

            Tell Me All About Them

              The Malmö, Sweden based quartet Arre! Arre! is back with their first piece of new music since the acclaimed debut LP A.T.T.A.C.K was released in 2015, become one of the year’s most praised rock records in Scandinavia, being nominated for rock album of the year at the Swedish Grammys, and only made available outside of Scandinavia in November last year, to coincide with the band’s debut UK shows.

              Tell Me All About Them is due for release on March 15 via PNKSLM Recordings (ShitKid, Les Big Byrd, Miss World etc) in connection to the band making their US debut during SXSW. Showcasing the band’s unique brand of feminist rock ’n’ roll, with influences from surf, garage rock and punk, it’s a definite statement of intent from the Swedish band. The album was recorded during the fall of 2018 in their hometown of Malmö with producer Joakim Lindberg (YAST, Hater, Echo Ladies etc).

              Holiday Ghosts

              West Bay Playroom

                Holiday Ghosts are back with their second LP West Bay Playroom, the follow-up to their acclaimed self-titled debut album from 2017. Originally starting out as a solo project from The Black Tambourines’ Sam Stacpoole the band evolved into a partnership with Katja Rackin, before turning into a full band with the debut album – showcasing a primitive rock ’n’ roll sound that’s been compared to The Modern Lovers and The Velvet Underground alongside current garage rock acts, and praised by the likes of The FADER, Stereogum, BrooklynVegan and KEXP. For West Bay Playroom the band’s refined their sound, offering a cleaner and more focused set of songs while breaking new ground and experimenting with influences from country, blues, spaghetti western soundtracks and more.

                Chemtrails

                Cuckoo Spit EP

                  London based Chemtrails, led by the musical and romantic partnership of Mia Lust and Laura Orlova, is back with their new EP Cuckoo Spit, less than a year after the release of their acclaimed debut album Calf of the Sacred Cow. After releasing two digital-only EPs in 2016 and 2017 and receiving the attention of the likes of Stereogum, The Line of Best Fit, DIY and GoldFlakePaint, the band quickly delivered the debut album - and now the prolific duo is back with a brand new EP. Their strongest collection of tracks yet, Cuckoo Spit finds the band at their catchiest, while also mixing up their lo-fi home recordings with some studio flair.

                  Gestures

                  Funny Games

                    Stockholm garage punk tio Gestures return with their eagerly anticipated debut album Funny Games, the band’s most accomplished work today. After self-releasing the debut EP Shattered Mind in 2016, which was later picked up by Stockholm garage rock institution Push My Buttons (Holograms, Viagra Boys) for a vinyl release, Gestures signed with PNKSLM Recordings (ShitKid, Les Big Byrd, HOLY etc) for the release of the Bad Taste EP in November 2016. Shortly after the band lost their drummer but vocalist/guitarist Sick Vic and bassist Don Jovi quickly re-grouped and set to working on their debut LP, which was written and recorded during the spring of 2017. A major step forward the band is leaving behind the lo-fi murkiness of their earlier releases in favour of a more confident garage rock sound, moving from quick fire garage punk to heavier and more menacing mo-ments, bringing to mind the likes of Jay Reatard, Carbonas and Bass Drum of Death. One of Scandinavia’s finest live bands, Gestures have been the go-to support pick for touring bands such as Moaning, Demon’s Claws, Uranium Club and Girls Names.

                    Beachtape

                    Fix It Up

                      Brighton, UK quartet Beachtape, the project of Rory Sear, Leo Kenyon, Andy Kemp and Dan Mcauliffe made their debut last fall with the Hold Music EP on Stockholm’s PNKSLM Recordings (ShitKid, Les Big Byrd, HOLY etc) and are now back with a double A-sided 7”. Featuring their two strongest tracks yet the 7” shows off Beachtape’s melodic yet fuzzy take on indie rock, straddling the middle ground between hazy beach pop and anthemic guitar pop.

                      Henrik Appel

                      Burning Bodies

                        The Swedish musician Henrik Appel has been a steady fixture on the Stockholm since moving there at age 20, but is only now, 13 years later, taking his first steps a solo artist with the debut album Burning Bodies arriving on June 29 via PNKSLM Recordings. Stepping away from the garage rock that’s been at the heart of his career so far in Lion’s Den and Martin Savage Gang, Burning Bodies is a more stripped-down affair, taking influence from the likes of Nico, Daniel Johnston, Karen Dalton and Brian Eno. Working with a minimal set-up Appel crafts a larger sound, staying away from the singer-songwriter niche, while delivering his strongest set of tracks yet.

                        Les Big Byrd

                        A Little Numb

                          Swedish psych quartet Les Big Byrd (featuring members of Caesars, Fireside, Teddybears, Viagra Boys etc) are back with the follow-up to last year’s soldout “Two Man Gang” single, one of the biggest hits in their native Sweden. An early teaser to their upcoming second album the “A Little More Numb” single is released via Stockholm label PNKSLM Recordings and showcases a sound somewhere in-between the pop-leaning “Two Man Gang” and the band’s previous kraut-y psych rock, with a guest performance by Pete Kember aka Sonic Boom of Spacemen 3 on the A-side. The B-side is an exclusive cover of The Lemon Drops’ Nuggest classic “I Live In The Springtime”.

                          Boys

                          Rest In Peace

                            Intimate and affecting indie pop from Stockholm based Nora Karlsson, originally from Umeå in the north of Sweden, the debut LP Rest In Peace is the culmination of a journey that started with writing her first original songs at age 17. Now 22, Nora’s already toured around the world as the guitarist of Swedish psych pop outfit HOLY, and her songwriting’s matured beyond her years.

                            A far cry from the lo-fi home-recording of her first EP’s Rest In Peace is an accomplished works by one of Scandinavia’s finest songwriters, one that’s already been praised in-ternationally by the likes of Gorilla vs. Bear, Stereogum, The Line of Best Fit, GoldFlakePaint and many more.

                            Swampmeat Family Band

                            Too Many Things To Hide

                              Having become something of a cult favourite in their hometown for their raucous live shows, Too Many Things To Hide is the long-awaited debut LP from Birmingham, UK quartet Swampmeat Family Band, which includes members Low Cut Connie, PWEI, Bentley Rhythm Ace, The Castillians, Terror Watts etc. Combining their inner ‘70s country soul and glam pop with more traditional heartbreak laments the quartet’s created a lasting collection of tracks that resides somewhere in the realm between Americana and garage rock, and Too Many Things to Hide is set to be released on March 23 via the Stockholm based indie label PNKSLM Recordings.

                              Holy

                              All These Worlds Are Yours

                                Starting out as a bedroom project for Swedish musician Hannes Ferm, HOLY released his debut “Stabs” in 2015. Whilst that record was a thrilling mix of 60s garage rock and lo-fi pop - drawing comparisons to the work of White Fence and Deerhunter- The long-awaited second LP, "All These Worlds Are Yours", sees a much bigger production all around. For All These Worlds Are Yours, Ferm spent almost a year in Stockholm's Studio Cobra, putting much more focus on Ferm's songwriting and building creative soundscapes.

                                Musically, All These Worlds... bursts with the youthful joy of listening to David Bowies The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars or Todd Rundgrens A Wizard, a True Star for the first time. Underneath the layers of piano flourishes and psychedelic swirls, All These Worlds... is unmistakably and unashamedly inspired by the great glam-rock records. Taken as a whole, its a romanticised painting of the early 70s - full of Rocky Horror Picture Show swagger and Brian Eno-esque art pop. Its freaky, its theatrical, its alien - but above all us, its decidedly human.

                                Boys / Magic Potion

                                Split

                                  A very special release that we're super psyched about - a double A-side split 7" from two of Stockholm's most exciting bands... one side features the first studio recording from Nora Karlsson's project BOYS, and the flip-side is the new single from MAGIC POTION, the first taste of new material since last years critically acclaimed LP "Pink Gum". Limited to 500 copies.

                                  Shitkid

                                  Fish

                                    Originally from the north of the Sweden, Åsa moved to Gothenburg after high school, starting a feminist punk band before turning inward and recording what would become her debut self-titled EP on a broken computer at home. A collection of three eerily incandescent blasts recounting the age-old tale of love at first sight was the result. Released in the spring of 2016, her unique brand of grunge-pop reached far beyond it’s lo-fi confines, with debut single 'Oh Please Be A Cocky Cool Kid' appearing on national TV the very next day.

                                    An expanded version of the debut EP was released in the summer of 2016, leading to numerous festival appearances in her homeland and sold-out shows in London and Stockholm, quickly becoming one of the most talked about new acts around. With live favourite “Sugar Town” leading the charge, "EP 2” followed in March, inviting the listener into ShitKid’s world and showcasing Åsa's strength as a songwriter. Written, recorded and produced by ShitKid, ‘Fish’ cements the arrival of an anti-popstar in the making. Guitar fuzz and digital drum-beats provide a fitting platform for her tipsy musings, executed with rock n' roll grit and charming nonchalance

                                    Holiday Ghosts

                                    Holiday Ghosts

                                      PNKSLM Recordings are proud to present the self-titled debut album from the UK’s Holiday Ghosts.

                                      Holiday Ghosts are based in Falmouth on the south coast of England and originally started out as the solo project of Sam Stacpoole of The Black Tambourines, with the rest of the line-up evolving since 2012. Now a full collaboration between Sam and girlfriend Katja Rackin, also featuring various members of The Red Cords, The Golden Dregs and William Weak, playing a stripped back and primitive style of rock n roll, with influences from acts such as Modern Lovers, The Clean, Violent Femmes and The Velvet Underground.

                                      The debut LP "Holiday Ghosts" showcases a mix of tracks written by Sam Stacpoole, Katja Racking and Charlie Murphy (also of The Red Cords, Freak Genes, Murph & The Gazorpos). It was recorded over two years at Troubador Studio in Falmouth on 8 track quarter inch tape and also features Ben Woods on bass. The album steps away from today’s heavy, fuzzed out guitar riffs and drones, and instead shows a leaner, snappier and more playful sound.
