Beach Skulls

Las Dunas

    Manchester trio Beach Skulls are back with their second album Las Dunas, the follow-up to the acclaimed debut album Slow Grind from 2016 which brought the band the attention of the likes of The Line of Best Fit, Clash, GoldFlakePaint and Under the Radar.

    Summery garage pop mixed with psych and dream pop influences, Las Dunas finds Beach Skulls refining and expanding their sonic palette, coupled with their strongest set of tracks yet and the band will be touring the UK and Europe around the release.

    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

      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”.

        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.

          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.

            High Sunn

            Missed Connection

              High Sunn, the project of 18-year-old San Franciscan Justin Cheromiah, returns with his debut studio album Missed Connections, the follow-up to last year's debut studio EP Hopeless Romantic which was praised by the likes of Stereogum, Consequence of Sound and BrooklynVegan. Produced by Dylan Wall (Craft Spells, Naomi Punk) the album is another collection of heartfelt and catchy guitar pop gems, showcasing Cheromiah's growth as a songwriter and chronicling the ups and downs of teenage life in modern day America.

              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.

                Chemtrails

                Calf Of The Sacred Cow

                  Punk Slime Recordings are proud to present the debut album from London based Chemtrails. Founded/fronted by romantic and musical partners Mia Lust and Laura Orlova, they make catchy, fuzzy, lo-fi pop music, somewhere between The Pixies, Black Lips and Blondie, with lyrics that are surreal yet earnestly meaningful. Chemtrails made their debut in September 2016 with the single ”Aeons”, and have since released two EPs.

                  The first, Love in Toxic Wasteland, tells stories of savagery and spirituality in a post-apocalyptic world, with melodic songs built out ofraw, heavy guitars and dreamy, reverb-soaked Farfisa body. The second EP, Headless Pin Up Girl, has a more pop-up feel to it, with Mia Lust's lyrics getting deeply personal as she openly reflects on her place in the world as a transgender woman.

                  The debut LP sees the band exploring wider territoryy and includes some their most unusual psychedelic power-pop songs yet, as well as their heaviest, most aggressive garage rock numbers

                  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.

                      Holy

                      Premonition

                        PNKSLM are incredibly proud to finally unveil the “Premonition” 7” single - the long awaited first taste of new material taken from HOLY’s second LP, coming early 2018. What started as a bedroom DIY project of Hannes Ferm has undergone a dramatic change since his debut album “Stabs” (2015) - and we can’t wait to finally get this out into the world.

                        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.

                            Black Mekon

                            One In The Hate

                              PNKSLM Recordings' are proud to announce the return of lo-fi garage punk legends Black Mekon. "One In The Hate" will see worldwide release on August 25th.

                              The masked duo (Black Mekon, and his brother Black Mekon) have spent the last few years playing across America, Europe and Japan, both headlining or being personally asked along by the likes of Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Guitar Wolf, King Brothers and more.

                              "One In The Hate" - the long awaited follow up to 2013's "Stolen Bible 2" (the very first LP ever released on PNKSLM) keeps the same raw energy heard on the previous album -and the huge catalogue they self-released through their 7" single consortium in between albums - but with slightly more clarity than before, although they probably won't admit that themselves

                              Les Big Byrd

                              Two Man Gang

                                Stockholm quartet with Les Big Byrd are finally back with new music after a two year absence with their new single “Two Man Gang”, released via Stockholm label PNKSLM Recordings. “Two Man Gang” follows the band’s acclaimed debut LP They Worshipped Cats (A Recordings) and the EPs Liquid Sky (Höga Nord Rekords) and Stockholm Death Star (A Recordings), and the new offering is arguably the band’s most pop-leaning track to date, complete with a Swedish language vocal.

                                Following the release of their debut LP in 2014 the band toured the world, mixing packed out headline shows with support slots to the likes of Brian Jonestown Massacre and Goat, finishing the album cycle with the release of the two EP’s in the spring of 2015 before retreating to the studio to work on new music. “Two Man Gang” is the first piece of new music from those sessions and is released via PNKSLM Recordings (the same label who released the band’s second EP Back to Bagarmossen in early 2014), backed by a live cover of Guided By Voices’ “My Valuable Hunting Knife”.

                                Les Big Byrd is Jocke Åhlund, Frans Johansson, Martin Ehrencrona and Nino Keller.
