Stay Inside Viewing The new full length record from Stay Inside. Stay Inside’s sound is a grand, clangorous, romantic take on the emo and post-hardcore of the late-’90s. They write big melodies and howl them out over heavy guitars and oblique rhythm-section churns. There are moments of great serenity on Viewing, and there are also big buildups of serrated catharsis. Sometimes, those moments are the same. Their lyrics tend towards the poetic. Three of the four members of the band sing — one, Chris Lawless, is credited with “screams” rather than “vocals” — and their interplay is extremely cool. No Sleep Records LP Pre-Order

La Dispute Somewhere At The Bottom Of The River Between Vega and Altaire This pressing is not currently available, however there is a reissue in stock here Ultra-emotional debut album from the Michigan band who incorporate elements of post-hardcore and experiemental time-changing indie-rock with a dark narrative. La Dispute has spent roughly the last year of its existence writing and recording their first full length album, called "Somewhere at the Bottom of the River Between Vega and Altair," in hopes of accurately displaying their growth both as individuals and as a single artistic unit while creating an end product that encourages the listener to both think and feel. Drawing its title from an Asian folktale, "Somewhere" attempts to prompt discussion regarding the aspects of ourselves that prevent us from maintaining our happiness as people by documenting both their own experiences in the matter and the experiences of those around them, while musically encouraging the listener to expand their notions of music and art by exploring time signatures, tempos, dynamics, song structures, etc. The result of countless sleepless nights, exhaustingly precise recording sessions, and a diligence bordering psychosis, "Somewhere" is far and a way the bands most mature, articulate, and diverse release thus far expanding significantly upon the groundwork from its previous two short releases. Recorded at Studiotte in Grand Rapids by Joel and Troy Otte with artwork by Nick Satinover, "Somewhere at the Bottom of the River Between Vega and Altair" attempts to display an unceasing passion for art, emotion, love, community, and any other aspect of life that similarly inspires humanity to create for the better. http://www.ladisputemusic.com/ No Sleep CD | LP

Middle Distance Blueshift Release date of LPs TBC but we expect mid-July. The new full length album from the No Sleep Records signed band Middle Distance. “Sonically Blueshift is a departure to our older punk roots. We looked back to the music we were into in our early teens for this record. The sound is now closer to the UK indie that got us wanting to start a band in the first place. We felt it was important not to just copy this style but really bring it forward, develop it and make it our own. We all listen to dance and electronic music, probably more than we do anything else. To make this record sound as authentic as it could possibly be we needed to let the entire spectrum of our taste inform the songs. Over two years this lead to a lot of experimentation. The end product is something we are extremely proud of and we can’t wait to share it with the world”. No Sleep Records LP
