Ivan The Tolerable “Splatter Bible” Tape OUT NOW

Ivan The Tolerable’s second tape for Endless finds our hero stripping back the electronics and samples of last year’s “Family Sandwich” and busting out the stop-on-a-dime basement twangers once more.

Sex Hands “Pleh” LP (Faux Discx) IN FOR DISTRO

Hailing from North Wales via Manchester, Sex Hands turn to a well known discontinued American sitcom for lyrical inspiration. While some of the songs on this LP are as cuddly as that might have you think, the barely-in-tune guitars get downright malevolent. Meanwhile, the singer comes over all Sid “Vegetable Man” Barrett. Sex Hands want
