12th Of April 2013 Update / We're 6 Years Old Today!
at Redscroll Records


 HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO US! We are 6 years old today. We opened our doors on April 12, 2007 and it has been pretty incredible to see what this store has become with all of your support. So, thank you and we'll continue to keep pushing to be better each year than we were the year before (or today better than yesterday even).
Nate Even Made Us Some Birthday Cards!

Ape School Junior Violence 

A well-known figure in Philadelphia’s music scene, Michael Johnson uses his second full-length to expand on the late-80s/early-90s neo-psychedelia sound, which included bands like Mercury Rev and The Boo Radleys. He uses a rotating lineup of musicians to build up a wall of melodic synth, with the resulting songs drawing elements from genres such as psychedelic rock, alt-rock and New Wave. In addition to sunny risers such as opener “A New Low! It Sucks Itself!” and “Cocaine & Guns ASAP,” the comfortably cool 80s-flashback songs are my personal favorites. The drifting ambient dream “Beneficiary (Don’t Blame Me)” and richly radiant memory “Weak in the Teeth” made me feel the most at home, almost like I was reliving an era I was too young to remember.

Efterklang Piramida

To get inspiration for their fourth album, this Danish indie-rock group spent nine days at an unexpected location: the former Russian coal mining community of Pyramiden, located on Norway’s northernmost archipelago and active for most of the 20th century. They captured over a thousand field recordings there, which they later expertly interspersed with instruments such as synth, piano and brass to create a subdued but very emotion-rich, moody sound. Right from the start of the haunting opener “Hollow Mountain” is an ancient-sounding melody created by lightly tapping a huge, hollow metal cylinder found on the settlement, soon joined by a mournfully angelic dirge, Casper Clausen’s far-reaching baritone, and synth and brass to complete the feeling. The lost-love lament “Apples” continues with a more dramatic, personal direction, telling someone to “run away” to be forgotten. One particular surprise is “Between The Walls,” starting out electronic as elegant-sounding glitch and swelling into a grand synth/brass ensemble.

The Story So Far What You Don’t See

(Pure Noise)
On their sophomore release, The Story So far have progressed their musical ability and sound as a band. What You Don’t See is a logical progression musically from their previous release, which is a breathe of fresh air for listeners who feel like bands change their sound too much between albums. This record is an honest confession by vocalist Parker Cannon and how he feels. Unlike many bands in the pop punk genre who sing about generic break-ups and skateboarding, The Story So Far provide a genuine and personal feel about how it feels to be in a band at their level of success, while also singing about love and loss that listeners can relate to. The Story So Far are swiftly rising in popularity in this new wave of pop punk bands including The Wonder Years and Man Overboard. After the release of their previous album, Under Soil & Dirt, this band has blown up in this scene and listening to their sophomore album it is easy to tell that this is not a fluke.
Suggested Tracks: Stiffled, Right Here, Empty Space, All Wrong
