Gape Attack! - 2008​-​2010

Gape Attack! made one of the most difficult sounds to describe that we’ve ever known, and not because it is very hard to find a tag that fits, but because of the amount of these tags that can be suitable for them. Minimal, synth-punk, weirdo, 8-bits, extreme lofi, coldwave, dark pop anthems, new wave… And for sure and as summary of all this, that multipurpose “catch-all” term that is Post-punk.

FDH Records brings us now on a really sick 12″ this stunning treasure track comp. taken from the very short but essential 2008-2010 catalog of this drunk and drugged Seattle’s line-up, that with these ultra-Lofi recordings on cheap gears, managed to blow our brains out as only few have done.

Scott Ryser ‎– Flying Away

Scott Ryser and his partner & wife, Rachel Webber, were the principal, songwriters, synth players, singers and filmmakers for the UNITS. The UNITS were one of America’s first electronic new wave bands and have been cited along with The Screamers and Suicide as pioneers of the music genre “synthpunk”. Scott & Rachel moved from SF to NYC in 1984 where Scott continues to make music & film.

Scott: “Flying Away” is a collection of song ideas I’ve been slowly working on ever since the UNITS broke up. That’s why the album sounds a bit like an old ‘80’s synth record at times. I stepped up the pace recently with the invaluable help and collaboration of Kit Watson in order to get the album out. Throughout the process of writing these songs I kept asking myself the same thing I did while writing songs for the UNITS, How can I make it sound original? Like something someone else hasn’t done yet. I also stayed true to my roots and kept it all synthesizers and drums (except for Blaine’s excellent violin solo on “Society For Two”).

Zeropolis

Post-punk outfit consisting of two French musicians living in London, Zeropolis embodies the anti-city, woven with dead utopias and technological fatigue. Layering noisy riffs and synthetic melodies over throbbing electronic beats, their music oscillates between coldwave, punk outbursts as well as the darkest corners of pop music.
