Five years into their existence as a band Disappears have finally exhaled - following a steady run of singles, ep's, and three full lengths the band retreated to their studio at the end of 2012 to take stock of where they had been and where they wanted to go. Disappears returned fully stretched out into the void with 2013's KONE EP. Abstract and experimental, it erased any expectation's people had about what Disappears sounded like or were capable of, as well as introduced new drummer Noah Leger - a pivotal force in what was to follow.

Era, Disappears fourth album in as many years', was birthed during the bleakness of the Chicago winter 2013 at Electrical Audio by now regular foil John Congleton. Insular and dark, Era sees the band refining their love of dub, minimalism and repetition into their most original and stark set yet. Decision and consequence weigh heavy on the album - both lyrically and through the bands decision to let the studio direct the final forms of the songs. Era is Disappears at their most abrasive, contemplative, and paranoid - it's the sound of the void looking back.


Weekend is a band native to Brooklyn via San Francisco who seamlessly combine a ferocious post-punk zeal with a pure pop elegance. It's a rare and intuitive sound, which has only gained strength and precision in recent years.

Previously, they released the widely acclaimed LP Sports back in 2010, followed soon after by the excellent EP Red in 2011, both on the flawless Berkeley California label Slumberland Records. Their highly anticipated second LP Jinx also on Slumberland hits stores on July 23.
