Label Of the week- Drunken Sailor Records

Drunken Sailor Records is a label from the UK that has been releasing quality sounds from around the world since the Tiltwheel Teach Your Children Hell 7″

They released Marvellous Mark’s (ex Marvelous Darlings man) Bite Me 7″ earlier in the year and jumped at the chance to release Marks debut LP.  “Sounding a bit like Big Star with power-pop overtones and a pop-punk driving force,Crushin’ is a collection of songs bursting with feeling that sound like they were written while the sun was either going down or coming up.”

First 100 on Yellow Vinyl. Touring Europe in 2016. This is a pre-order, the records will ship on Friday 15th January.

 

Also out on the same day is the debut EP from Malos Modales.
The ‘Cronicas Terrestres EP (mastered by the ever awesome North London Bomb Factory Mastering) is the bands debut record. Garage/ powerpop with a definite nod to The Marked Men.
Hailing from Monterrey, Mexico.

Malos Modales are a punk band of people who technically aren’t old but could make some people question this very fact. Formed in Monterrey, Mexico, the band features some familiar faces in its lineup, namely Kiko Blake from División Minúscula (one of the most successful and emotionally charged bands from the past decade), and Johnny Vzz and Hugo “Scrap” Zapata from electroparty mainstays She’s A Tease (Chacho Zapata rounds up the band). They converged and recorded some demos, then decided to take the proper steps to formalize the band. They have recorded a self-titled EP at their rehearsal space with the help of a 4-track tape recorder.

 

Other bands on the label are the excellent lo-fi pop of Martha, the pop punk hilarity of Wonk Unit and home to the amazing soaring guitar of stay clean jolene
