Part Chimp IV The fourth album from London's noise-rock band Part Chimp, heavy and searingly distorted guitars that follow on from the bands's last release back in 2009 titled Thriller, these are huge Goliath riffs with howling vocals that is evidence that the short hiatus has not interfered with the band's musicianship and love for creating ear-deafening songs. For fans of Swans, Mogwai, Melvins and Black Sabbath. The four piece have never done anything in half-measures. With a keen focus on intelligent song craft and dynamics, they have earned a reputation for being one of the most influential bands operating in the noise/stoner rock sphere in the past decade, establishing themselves as a crucial, if physically damaging, live experience to behold. - The Quietus Rock Action Records CD | LP

The Twilight Sad Videograms A 10" single from the awesome Scottish band The Twilight Sad, taken from their 2018 album It Won/t Be Like This All the Time. “Videograms”, which carries the Cure’s influence in its colorful synth arrangements. The driving, pummeling percussion paired with Graham’s unsettling wail do well to cement the track in the Twilight Sad’s comfort zone. “‘Videograms’ was the first song written for the album but the last song finished before we went in to record,” Graham said. “It’s one of the most melodic things we’ve done. Since writing the song I’ve heard the phrase ‘don’t you start on me’ whilst walking down the street, in the supermarket, in the pub. It must have been something that I’d heard a lot that stuck with me and came out in this song.” Rock Action Records 10"

RM Hubbert / Aidan Moffat What The Night Bestows US [RSD19] This is an exclusive release for Record Store Day 2019. Any remaining stock will be available online from Saturday 20th April, strictly one per customer. Recorded live in November 2018 on a 5-date tour of England, the album features new and intimate stripped-back arrangements of album tracks as Aidan & Hubby are joined for the first time by violinist and vocalist Jenny Reeve. It also includes completely reworked versions of Party On and Wolves of the Wood, the latter being a particular highlight for the band: "As we walked on stage, we decided to ask the audience in Oxford to join us for the new version of Wolves and howl as best they could all through the song – they were brilliant and it turned out lovely, and it's probably my favourite track of ours we've ever released," says Aidan. There's also a cover of Rosalie Allen's post-war anti-fascist song Hitler Lives, while the album ends with Car Song, the first track the duo wrote together back in 2012. Available on heavyweight clear vinyl with download code. Rock Action Records LP RSD 2019
