Dirtcult puts three up for pre-order

Preorders / July 12, 2012

Dirtcult Records has put three new vinyl releases up for pre-order in its webstore. The following item descriptions are provided by Dirtcult and by clicking on the titles, you’ll be taken to a pre-order screen.

Sundowners – S/T 7″
Follow up to their great (and extremely underappreciated) LP on Dirt Cult a few years ago, Sundowners play hooky DIY punk for fans of bands like Frozen Teens, Future Virgins, and The Bananas. This is somehow better than the LP. Art by Justin Francis. First 100 on opaque yellow.

Muhamammadali¬†– S/T 12″
This Houston band has been around forever, but aside from their recent split with Unfun on A.D.D. records, hasn’t done any official releases. I’ve like them for a while, but the absolutely floored me at last year’s Awesome Fest, prompting me to immediately seek them out and ask them to do a record. I think these dudes do a lot of drugs. Imagine old Flaming Lips and Butthole Surfers mixed with Hickey, but not the poppy side of Hickey that most bands tend to emulate…more like the wacked out stoner stuff that I always sorta prefered. First 100 on translucent yellow.

Autonomy –¬†The Art Of Work In The Age Of Digital Reproduction LP
Dark and atomospheric anarcho-punk. This shit sounds like Joy Division and The Mob all at the same time. They’re from Carbondale and feature local hero Ray Suburbia. Honestly, though this is pretty far removed from a lot of other Dirt Cult releases, I think it is in my top 5 favorites. First 100 on translucent blue.

All three will ship out in August. You can pick up all the releases in a pre-order package, here. Digital download codes for all three releases will be sent out immediately.
