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).

    GHLOW

    Slash & Burn

      The Swedish-Russian duo GHLOW have been making a name for themselves in the Nordics for the past couple of years with their explosive live shows, sharing the stage with the likes of Sleaford Mods and Sudakistan and playing showcase festivals such as by:Larm and Tallinn Music Week. Now they’re finally ready to make their full-length debut with “Slash and Burn” on Swedish indie label PNKSLM Recordings, showcasing GHLOW’s powerful blend of alternative rock and electronics, which have been likened to the likes of Nine Inch Nails and Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

      Initiates

      Esoteric Pop

        Punk Slime Recordings are proud to present the debut album from Stockholm quartet Initiates. Initiates is the new project from Swedish post-punk act Holograms’ Andreas Lagerström, taking inspiration from shoegaze and ‘90s alternative rock with loud distorted guitar textures and dreamy melodies. Joining Lagerström is Oliver Brink on guitars, Joakim Andersson on bass and Adam Hansson on drums, with Lagerström handling vocals and guitars. For their debut LP the band teamed up with producer Martin “Konie” Ehrencrona (ex Viagra Boys, ex Les Big Byrd) for a 26 minute long collection of nineties infused alt-rock, complete with Lagerström’s signature vocals.

        After seven years and three records with Holograms - the first two of them released on Brooklyn’s Captured Tracks - Lagerström was ready to try something new. He already had the kernels of new song ideas percolating, although they would never have fi t within the punk confines of Holograms - instead, they harked back to shoegaze and nineties alternative. “My biggest infl uence has always been Swirlies,” he says, referring to the cult Boston indie rockers. “I wanted to something that was outside of the Holograms box, that would be a little bit more laid-back, and that didn’t feel quite so serious.”

        What began as Lagerström’s own vision has evolved into something else entirely, with all four members bringing their own skillsets to the table; Andersson’s an ex-member of the death metal outfi ts Maim and Morbus Chron, while Brink’s interests lie chiefl y with post-punk outfi ts like The Sound. Hansson, meanwhile, has already served apprenticeships in underground outfi ts Kerosene Kream and Caligulas Mamma, and the resulting amalgam on Esoteric Pop is a raw, 26-minute maelstrom of distorted guitar, woozy sonic textures, and reverb-drenched melodies.

        Yung

        Progress

          The Danish four-piece Yung are back four years after the release of their 2016 debut LP A Youthful Dream on Fat Possum, which followed a series of EPs that brought them the attention of Pitchfork, Stereogum, NPR, The FADER and more. Now working with Stockholm, Sweden based indie label PNKSLM Recordings (ShitKid, Les Big Byrd, Hollow Ship etc) the band has refi ned their sound while embracing a wider palette of inspiration, coming through to the other side and reassessing their focus. The fi rst fruit of the new partnership is the Progress 7” which features new single “Progress” alongside the exclusive b-side “New Fast Song”, which showcases the band’s more punk-infused side.

          Les Big Byrd

          Roofied Angels

            Stockholm’s Les Big Byrd are back with their new EP Roofied Angels due out on June 26 on limited edition 12” vinyl and with the A-side and title track released digitally in May. Roofied Angels is the first piece of new music from Les Big Byrd since 2018’s acclaimed Iran Iraq IKEA LP outside of the instrumental Snö-Golem 7” from last fall, which sold out immediately, and the English language version of the band’s 2017 hit “Two Man Gang” which was released in May 2019.

            The 7 minute fuzz-blizzard “Roofied Angels” might just be the best thing the band’s put their name to yet, melding Motörhead and Shangri-La’s influences into their krautrock infused psychedelic rock, while bringing to mind the heavier side of the band’s 2014 debut LP They Worshipped Cats and was recorded during the sessions for the band’s upcoming third full-length.

            Sleep Eaters

            Holy Days

              The London based country-infused rock quintet Sleep Eaters are ready to unveil their debut EP Holy Days on August 9 via Stockholm’s PNKSLM Recordings (home to ShitKid, Les Big Byrd, Magic Potion and more). Having become one of London’s most talked about new acts for their country-infused take on garage rock, Sleep Eaters have spent the past year honing their craft on stage and in the studio, recently supporting Drahla on their UK tour while drawing praise from the likes of So Young and Clash. Holy Days was recorded with Euan Hinshelwood of Younghusband and will be followed by UK and EU live dates during the summer and fall, including dates with L.A. Witch and Froth.

              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".

                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).

                  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.

                    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.

                      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.
