Watching The Moon - "Perception Is Bent"
CD : $10.00 - Available now!!
Watching The Moon is a band that has charted undefined territory in recent years. Hailing from Austin TX and harkening sounds of the great North West, WTM is redefining tones that have long since been lost with the last standby records of the early to mid 90's. Pete Brown and company rock with ferocious hipster sounds from vintage amplifiers, cranking reverse delay and screaming bleeding melodies, with tones that call to mind early work from Modest Mouse and Sonic Youth. If you don't know this band, it's time to learn. ( cd jackets are silk screened with different limited run colors such as hot pink, orange, blue, silver etc. Collect them all! )

Audio Sample : Mr. Microphone

Yes friends, HOF's long awaited debut has officially arrived. If interwoven melodies that beckon neon scattered sunsets, and bitter but sticky sweet vocal harmonies that dance in patterns before yours eyes, are something you have a taste for, then don't hesitate to get on this bus. Taking 3 parts 60's rock/pop and 1 part shoegaze/brit pop HOF's sound burns so brightly that only a mirror would satisfy their glow. - For fans of Brian Jones Town Massacre, Ride, early work from the Byrds and Velvet Underground just to name a few.

Snakes and Music - Isabelle
$10.00
Andrew Low & Co. are back to drive a nail into the the forehead of the non-believers of indie rock. Featured here on their sophomore disc is an increasing evolution of dynamics & genre blending. We find psychedelic journeys and folk inspired dreams. We hear country flavored indie, and balladering rock. It all wears the name tag " Isabelle " that proudly announces a new dawn for the band and puts to rest the burning question of weather or not true indie rock is dead.

Geography - Life in Binary
$8.00
While ash and white noise flicker in television ad details, we witness the current shift and the forest burn. In retrospect we hold our breath, initiating the action of hope. And then the mental sound track starts. We're listening to the systematic deconstruction of mass appeal. The design on the bleach bottle begins to fade. Our senses are slowlystirred, and the break-downs are felt for miles. Wake up, and find yourself on the map.
UWR012
REDTOPS - left for dead...
$10.00
The back drop is set, a waste land they call Montgomery County, PA.. Broken down steel towns echo the ghosts of a blue collar post industrialized society. Just over the hill on the right, we have our local Nuclear Power Plant.. With two concrete columns stretching into the sky. Each pillar emits a pillowy, looking white cloud that lingers in the atmosphere and dances on the horizon. Radiation pills are received annually in the local mail, but there is no shortage of strip malls and track homes that are beginning to populate what would sound like a forgotten purgatory. This is a metaphor for the RedTops and their music, except the backdrop happens to be their neighborhood.
UWR011
Victim Of Modern Age - channels like capillaries
$10.00
Like cutting through the dusted silence of a dead planet, this record shatters the vessel that contains your modern music. Leave the cliche's at the door, and your hearts on the curb. A new vehicle has arrived.. Channels Like Capillaries.. Victim Of Modern Age's sophomore effort rocks with such blinding force that you almost forget to breath. Yet this record is all the fresh air you could possibly need. Shredding and blending the best elements of the indie rock world, Victim of Modern Age has developed a sound... And it is a sound that will haunt the space between your ears, and then capture exactly what you have always wanted...
UWR010
Snakes and Music - Truisms
$10.00
Alright, now this is what we have all been for!! Ladies and gentlemen... Snakes and Music has arrived!! Kicking powerful melodic jams in an abstract art rock fashion, finding a sound that can easily fit into a mid-90's alternative / inde rock showcase on a college radio station. Andrew Lows' post Jazz June project seems to have rediscovered a sound that was loved and lost. With narrative qualities and a nod to the modern retro sound, Snakes paints a picture with the highest level of saturation. Modern rock has just evolved, be the first to tell your friends....
UWR009
SADAHARU - Punishment In Hi-Fi
$10.00
Here it is! The reissue of the 2001 release of "Punishment In Hi-Fi" These guys are taking a socially pro-active stance, with a unique sound that falls somewhere in between a rockablliy, math, spazzcore, experimental styling. Their live performance is not unlike an A-Bomb going off, but with the precision of brain surgery. If you think you've heard it all, drop what what you're listing to and dive head first into an empty pool.. It's the only thing that can compare to this music experience... ( this record contains new art work, and has been enhanced with video clips of a live performance)
UWR008
Victim of Modern Age - S/T ep
$5.00
A poignant introductory release from the four kids from Loiusianna. This record displays VOMA's modern rock sensibility, yet establishes their determination in establishing new patterns and sounds. Hard at times, soft-hearted at others, but always to the point. Four songs from four kids for you.
UWR007
Against Tomorrows Sky - jump the hedges first
$10.00
Polished, powerful, intricate and stompy... Just a few adjectives to drop on this dynamic indie-rock... And Indie... It has never sounded so good. In all honesty this band has a live performance that even turns the most jaded 'punk scenesters' head.. and leaves them talking. Two guitarists doubled up vocals, harmonization, extended bass compositions and advanced percussion that compliments. There is an idea of perfection, and you'll find it here... And when the world does, we'll have written history.
UWR006
Manalive! - heart, hands and mind
$10.00
If you can remeber back about ten years ago when the music scene exploded, and somehow everything felt new and exciting.. Well what we're talking about are bands with originality and integrity that did this... Ones that leave a lasting mark. And what your looking at is a band that is going to do this... Heart, Hands and Mind is loaded powerhouse of punk, hardcore, alternative and ska/regga influenced songs, that blend perfectly to create a truly unique raw sound. This album is going to do what "Bleach" did for SUB-POP.
UWR005
Covert Agency - (S/T brown ep II)
$7.00
Once again the Agency delivers a cryptic package, but this time there is a surprising twist; that lies in the bands departure from their original roots. This record is simply chalked full of angst soaked riff rock that is heavier, rawer, and more profound than their prior albums; but yet somehow maintains their melodic pop sensibility. Screaming and bleeding lyrical compositions, with a taste of frustrated broken willed loss... This is all piled on top driving bass and raging percussion... A bitter sweet album that leaves you wondering just how far you would really go...
UWR004
Manalive! - robotic youth ep
$5.00
If you like non-stop, in your face guitar speed and bass bounce with a side of ska... then be ready to be floored. This formula mixed with the intensity of staggered breakdowns and a vocal style reminiscent of early American Steel is enough to stop you in mid-sentence; no joke. This album is a precursor to this Colorado band's involvement with UW. We're bringing them East, so be ready.
UWR003
Forget About Tomorrow - ...and then there's June ep
$5.00
This album lyrically captures an essence and feeling that can only be described to as the awe, angst and wonder of a high school episode. In no way juvenile, but rather an introspective view on the bittersweet twists that life translates to. The types of songs you sing along to with your friends. Tons of dynamic guitar and bass changes with drum breakdowns. Formatted for the emo lover at heart. Watch these guys, they're on the move...
UWR002

Covert Agency - (S/T orange ep I)
$7.00
The Covert Agency are back, with a new self-titled e.p. these second year slammers from Kutztown University, Pa. have it all. If you like edginess with your indie, and scream along melodies with your power pop punk; then you'll freak when you hear this six song savior. two vocalists are featured in this three piece band that throw insightful lyrics with harmonization all over the board. The bands throw away ethic seems to reinvent a fresh sound of cartharsis. Very real, very powerful. The kind of music that makes you drive fast. This band is hard to label, but we did our best. trust us when we say that pa. has a secret weapon.
