Plow United - Marching Band

JST-088 - Plow United - Marching Band - CD/12" Vinyl LPDigital Download

The first new Plow United record in 15 years, Marching Band isn't a comeback, it's a never left. Twelve tracks of signature Plow United urgency with poignant, intelligent, and introspective lyrics the band is known for. If you thought Plow United was one of the most important Philly-area bands in the early to mid 90's, this record will remind you why, and certainly reaffirm why you liked this band in the first place.

Kill Lincoln - That's Cool...In a Totally Negative and Destructive Way

JST-088 - Kill Lincoln -That's Cool...In a Totally Negative and Destructive Way - CD/12" Vinyl LPDigital Download

Ten tracks of high energy, insanely catchy, and hook-filled punk-ska from Washington DC's six-piece native sons. Kill Lincoln is equal parts catchy pop-punk and breakneck fast hardcore as much as it is uptempo ska filled with infectious sing-alongs and melodic horn lines that will have you hooked from the start. Liking ska doesn't have to be such a bad thing now, does it?

Two brand new tracks, one each from both Aspiga and Hanalei.

Crucial Dudes - 61 Penn

JST-068 - Crucial Dudes- 61 Penn - CD/12" Vinyl LP/Digital Download

With a name as tongue and cheek as the Crucial Dudes, you'd almost think that this New Jersey five-piece doesn't actually exist, but trust us, they do. Taking a cue from bands like Latterman and Saves the Day, the Crudes play a style of pop-punk that is infectiously catchy and true to heart. Songs like "Doubt", "61 Penn", and "Give 'Em the Howard" are undeniable bangers, and will have you singing along in no time. 61 Penn might be this band's first release put to wax and CD, but the entire release screams with a sincerity and age well beyond their years.

One Win Choice - Conveyor

JST-067 - One Win Choice - Conveyor - CD/12" Vinyl LP/Digital Download

Battle tested. That's the best way to describe this monsterous release from One Win Choice. Taking the high energy melodic hardcore they're known for and stepping it up a notch, Conveyor is a record that bleeds emotion and passion welded together with sheer determination and thought provoking views on where we are and where we're headed. Some might think these guys are one of a few bands out there still carrying the melodic hardcore torch like the bands they're so often compared to, but this record is so much more. It's a living, breathing testimate of personal struggle and growth. Reconnect to disconnect.

Giving Chase - Iron Men in Iron Lungs

JST-066 - Giving Chase - Iron Men in Iron Lungs - Digital Download

Few bands in the scene continually push the edge of what fast and heavy music can be like Giving Chase, and this EP, Iron Men in Iron Lungs, is four songs of intense, technical, and heavy hardcore that is raising the bar. The band's sound has become more focused and intense yet still tows the line of raw and technical hardcore punk they've been know for. Recorded at Studio 4 with Will Yip (Blacklisted, None More Black), Iron Men in Iron Lungs is just a taste of what this band can bring to the table. This is a FREE download, so grab all four songs and rage.

Astpai - Heart to Grow

JST-065 - Astpai - Heart to Grow - CD/12" Vinyl LP/Digital Download

We've had the benefit of working with this band long enough now that we've had the pleasure of seeing them grow into the band they are today; this record is a testiment to that fact. Fueled by endless nights spent on the road and the sheer spirit of youthful wonder, Astpai brings you Heart to Grow, a journey of not only a band on the move, but also of the growing pains that we experience on that journey. We like to compare these guys to bands like None More Black and Trial By Fire, but Heart to Grow is so much more than a band simply paying homage to their peers and influences. Its filled to brim with youthful energy, uncertain futures, and joyful sing-alongs that are undeniably infectious and catchy. This band is simply the reason why we put out records. Each released version contains a different track listing, but the LP and digital versions come with all fourteen in some shape or form.

The type of band to punk for the hardcore kids, to hardcore for the metal kids, and too metal for the punk kids, if that makes any sense at all. A Cheap Print of a Masterpiece is a record that flows from start to finish with a ton of rage and about as much energy and passion you can put to tape. Compared a lot to fellow standouts A Wilhelm Scream, this five piece has a bit of a harder edge that has earned them fans with their energetic live shows on stages and in basements around the world.

Giving Chase

JST-042 - Giving Chase - Nothing Ever Changes - CD EP/Digital Download

Seven tracks of passionate and intelligent hardcore that was a distinct change in direction for the band in comparison to their previous release, Still Waiting. Since it's release, Giving Chase has gone on to blaze a new path by weilding fast, technical, break neck hardcore with a undying DIY work ethic that has seen them travel to both ends of the States and Europe several times over. Nothing Ever Changes is the release that put this band on the map and made people take notice. Recorded at Clay Creek Studios with Nick Rotundo (Boy Sets Fire, Paint It Black, None More Black), this is exactly what you'd expect from a hardcore record; intense, hard hitting, and heavy without sacrificing anything for the sake of sounding cliche.

Antillectual - Testimony

JST-040 - No On 15 - Meet the Lads - Digital Download

The last recordings of the infamous PA punk rock party animals. No On 15 were a pop-punk band with a three piece horn section whose exploits both on and off the stage far proceeded them. Known for their out of control and off the wall live shows as much as their post-show party antics, No On 15 created some of the most energetic horn infused pop-punk and ska around, and their final record was the culmination of five long years of living on the road playing DIY shows, dirty basements, and shitty clubs just about anywhere they could. A staple in the Central PA scene, this band is surely missed, but luckily we have this, their final recorded effort, to enjoy. Recorded and produced by Steve Foote (Big D & the Kids Table) at Fork in Hand Studios and mixed by Jason Livermore and Bill Stevenson at The Blasting Room (Descendents, All, Black Flag). Maybe someday this record will see more than just a digital release. Who knows?
