Hell-P-018 / Limited Handcrafted CD + Free Digital Download / Edition of 20
Words Hurt is the direct result of that ability to absorb all that’s thrown at you, but it’s the smarmy aftertaste you spit on the pavement that makes existing so much fun. Words Hurt is the merger between rapper Alaska (Def Jux / Atoms Family, Hangar 18) & producer Lang Vo. Together they’re the embodiment of using spite & self deprecation to block out the rest of the assholes clamoring for your attention.

The two artist introduce the moniker “Lawnmowermen” – a nice nod to the passing summer days filled with the buzz of the blades clipping the grass.

Hell-P-014 / Limited Handcrafted CD / Edition of 25
Chicago producers and peers, Morbidly-o-Beats and Hoot, present a first look inside their haunted house of hard drive history for their debut as Gutter$nipe$ with “Collected Unconsciousness: 2003-2013”. Dragging you through some of their unreleased highlight collaborations of the past decade, they bring you on a journey to the belly of the beast where goopy sinister synths dance with the resurrected chops of musty sedated samples and a cacophony of laser etched breakbeats all tied to the ground with their own brand of musical chair MPC2000XL sequencing. The duo breaths life into a graveyard of hard synths and dusty record bins to present this hazy panic attack of a polyphonic poltergeist.

Hell-P-013 / Limited Handcrafted CD / Edition of 20
It’s safe to say that Saskatoon, SK based instrumental producer Marjen has put in work in the last few years. In addition to several self released projects, he has released music with respected cassette labels I had An Accident Records and Em La La Terra, as well as collaborating with musicians, producers and emcees from across Europe and North America. Rubies & Rust is Marjen’s third project for Clermont-Ferrand based label Hello.L.A. (following singles with L.V. Frett and Skizza, respectively). For the most part on this album, Marjen sets aside his signature Rhodes piano and bell-rich melodies in favour of a more raw, ambient, atmospheric sound. The drum programming is still on point and hits hard, providing the perfect backdrop for his Hello.L.A labelmates, emcees V8 (Chicago, IL/Portland, OR), Morbidly-O-Beats (Chicago, IL) and Bakus (Los Angeles, CA).

Over the last year or so Parlay Droner (FBR Art Director, AMOD Records, Recording Artist, Installation Artist) & Michael J Collins aka MJC (Owner Of FilthyBroke Recordings, Artist On Greta Cottage Workshop, K7, Fremdtunes, Hello.L.A., etc.) made a bunch of strange and very personal music. “Music.” A lot of heart and pain went into these recordings… A lot of “Fuck Convention” went into these songs… Dark times and moments of elation were all in abundance during the time that this was put together. Yes, it sounds this way on purpose… It sounds like how we feel… It would be nearly impossible to list all of the gear used or describe the overall recording method. It’s all just a mess. A cathartic mess.
Limited Poster / Edition of 10

Chicago Chrome began in an old brothel-stained apartment on Chicago Avenue in the West Town Neighborhood of Chicago. One of the last frozen days of this past winter blues blown just across from an old, empty Italian Restaurant V8 had managed for the Mob for several years earlier. The two went an entirely different direction with this 8th Sludge Factorie Installment bringing a little more light into the darkness that had engulfed their first seven attempts at making anything. Actions that produce only a single reaction to be molded into retribution. From one walking installation to another, the two stuff garbage into each other’s pockets only to pull out pyrite-plated lint from the abyss of their costumes. This germ then blew across the Atlantic Ocean until its declination into an oil filled puddle in Berlin where it was found by our dear brother Phil (Noblonski) and the rest is ‘Chicago Chrome’.
Hell-P-010 / Limited Handcrafted CD / Edition of 20
This collection of songs is a direct tribute to the golden era of hip hop production wise, DJ Premier/Pete Rock/Dilla/Marley Mal pre-94. Paying homage to the sliced reprogrammed breaks on top of chugging chopped soulful samples, It’s beats made for the invisible rapper in your head to kick some rhymes over while you drive through a meadow slightly buzzed from taboo recreations.

True Deceiver is the new sludgy post-metal electronic project from Portland, Oregon based electronic-folk producer Cars & Trains. It sits in a heavier, darker end of the spectrum from his work under the Fake Four, Inc affiliated work under the Cars & Trains name. The synthesized hammering of drums, hissing static, and heavily detuned baritone guitar provide a stark contrast to the echo laden melodies of the vocals and brooding, fluttering cello. The lush shoegazer sensibility and immense wall of sound have a level of energy that comes as surprising to those familiar with earlier, more subdued work from Filepp. The heavy pulsating guitar and distorted electronic drums bring to mind influences like Godflesh or later Killing Joke, while the sense of melody, synth lines, and flickering cello parts evoke lighter acts like My Bloody Valentine or Slowdive.
