Nancy - With Child LP (Eat The Life Records)
Listen/Order at http://handstandrecords.com

We've been nothing short of obsessed with the new Dangus Tarkus record, so we felt it appropriate and downright necessary to stock some LPs from Dangus's other band Nancy. It's easy to make comparisons to bands like The Ramones and The Queers, but Nancy has both the charm and chops to set them apart, with an essential blend of garage rock 'n' roll, power pop, and bubblegum punk whose catchiness cannot be overstated!

THE GARRISON - Subversion TAPE
"The only (Malaysian) band that matters. In all seriousness, The Garrison has taken The Clash songbook and turned it to their own ends: slashing guitars, rabble-rousing lyrics, and the odd reggae song thrown in. If they were American they'd probably be on Alternative Tentacles and touring with Leftover Crack or whoever, and blowing them off the stage. Great stuff." -MRR

THINKING STRAIGHT - Positive Crew
Aggressive straightedge hardcore from Depok City, Indonesia. Melodic and harmonious guitars blend with sharp, harsh vocals, combining '88 youth crew style and heavy metal mosh parts to create positive, singalong hardcore anthems.

NEW IN STOCK! Dangüs Tarküs - Rock N' Roll For The People 12" LP (Dig! Records)
Listen/Order at http://handstandrecords.com

After last year's dazzling EP on Lumpy Records, its high time Dangüs Tarküs’ mysterious, heretofore cassette-only, killer 2013 glam punk debut "Rock N' Roll For The People" got a proper (limited) vinyl release! Dangüs Tarküs is the alter ego of Joe Sussman, front dude and guitar guru of NANCY, Brooklyn come Chicago’s dynamo punk duo. Listeners can expect to find the best mutant punk blasts since the age of new records from The Spits (on bangers like “Apocalloyd” and “Brain Teaser”). And much like any serious rock 'n' roll effort, this platter summons it’s kindred spirits and primordial forbearers in a slew of covers, ranging from the classics (Sparks and Nikki & the Corvettes) to the more obscure and underappreciated (Pantherman). Dig! Records delivers yet another killer release. HIGHLY FUCKING RECOMMENDED!

NEW IN STOCK! Toby Foster / Evan Gornik - Split LP (Keep It Together Records)
Listen/Order at http://handstandrecords.com

#FBF to 2009 with this split record between two great acoustic/folk/pop artists. Both Toby and Evan bring great songs to this release, and it's an excellent introduction to vinyl for both of them. 17 folk-pop songs in total about interactions between people and their community, wavering relationships, and growing up without giving up. This split record is on split colored vinyl: half black, half coke bottle clear.

Worse - Rubber Burner LP (Deranged Records)
Listen/Order at http://handstandrecords.com

New York City’s WORSE have made an LP of noisy rock’n’roll songs that don’t shy away from being punk. The band relies heavily on pop sensibilities while having guitars that blare through sounding not unlike the classic 90’s bands HARVEY MILK and HAMMERHEAD. The slugging-drawls of the instruments bleed into the two-singer vocals and what you’re left with is a puddle of punk rock goodness. The arrangements are complicated even in their brute force and the quick psychedelic dives show just how compelling a two minute, three chord song can be. The band has been compared to “Floyd the Barber”-era NIRVANA and FLIPPER, but this LP draws more from bands like COWS or even BUTTHOLE SURFERS than it does the Pacific Northwest sound. The hardest part of describing “RUBBER BURNER” is that all nine songs stand alone independent of each other. The members of worse have been in bands like NOMOS, BATTLETORN, GRIDS, and SYPHILITIC LUST and all three members played together in NYC’s unforgiving SHOXX.

Bib - Pop 7" (Deranged Records)
Listen/Order at http://handstandrecords.com

Omaha, Nebraska's BIB presents "Pop", their follow-up release to their 2015 demo. "Pop" takes you on a panicked journey through a wormhole of anxiety and isolation. BIB continues their wall-of-noise style production on this release, with delayed vocals that sound like they’re being tossed off of a mountain. BIB mixes quick, full chord riffs with crushing breakdowns. Vocals weave between childlike shrill barks, primordial grunts, and pressure-reducing singing. The final track "P.M.F." ends the record with a chaotic blast of organ that perfectly captures BIB's pop and hardcore sound.
