IceAge, New Brigade LP

The label calls this "a youthful assault of downer no-wave hardcore, wise beyond its years" and that's a pretty accurate description. Think about all the things you love about hardcore, post-punk, and synthesizers (!), and you've got what these Danes from Copenhagen have offered up on their debut LP. It's fantastic, it's passionate, and what's more, it's fun. I love this record.  This, the US edition, has two bonus tracks that were not on the European edition. It also comes with a 4-page foldout with photos and lyrics, and is packaged "in a hand-numbered thick stock matte sleeve with gloss overlaid artwork."  Limited to 500, and available for pre-order from Dais Records for $16.
