Finally, after numerous random delays, both new 25 DIAMONDS releases are now available for purchase and are streaming in full.
25D 010 – Call Me Lightning ‘Human Hell’ LP
10 new songs by Call Me Lightning on this, their 4th LP and first release since 2010′s ‘When I Am Gone My Blood Will Be Free’ LP (Dusty Medical Records). Loud, catchy punk/post punk/whatever, landing equal comparisons in sound to Lungfish and The Who (for those who care about such things). Call Me Lightning — from Milwaukee, WI., who’ve been a band for over a decade — have been friends for a long time now, and in fact, were one of the very first bands I ever asked to do a record with me — I’m thrilled it’s finally happening, and especially so with the fruits of the labor. 300 copies pressed, all on 150 gram colored vinyl, and includes a download code.
25D 011 – The Salteens ‘Whiskey & Records’ 7″
The Salteens were a band that existed in the mid to late 90′s in Minneapolis, who’s only ever proper release were 2 show-stealing songs on the ‘No Slow… All Go!’ compilation. They recorded the 5 songs for this 7″, which has been planned and/or rumored to come out on numerous labels over the years, and then promptly broke up. Members went on to (or were already involved in) The Soviettes, The Gateway District, Cleveland Bound Death Sentence and The Strike, but this record completely stands firmly on it’s own two feet. 300 copies pressed, colored vinyl, and includes a download code.
Both releases are available for purchase in the 25 DIAMONDS store, as well as at Extreme Noise Records and The Electric Fetus in Minneapolis. Copies of both will be available through Revolver, Ebullition and various other distributors in the immediate future as well.
Thanks all. xx 25D
