2 - BLACK BUG - FROZEN ENERGY - (7") 
AVANT!


Featuring vocals by Shawn Foree from synth-punk legends Digital Leather, this new two-song reestablishes the savage force of the band while at same time probing some previously unknown areas. Just take a listen to the mournful guitar arpeggio on 'Push You' and you'll feel what we feel. A perfect balance of straightforward, stripped-down synthetic punk and a glance to the dark side of early UK post-punk.

3 - BUZZ KULL - NEW KIND OF CROSS - (LP) 
AVANT!


A mere 18 months after the release of 2017's 'Chroma', Buzz Kull (real name Marc Dwyer), has returned with his sophomore album. Traversing EBM, darkwave and goth sounds with ease, 'New Kind Of Cross' traverses much darker waters than Dwyer's last effort. 'New Kind Of Cross' speaks to the rapid change and tension at play in Dwyer's own life. Marc spends a good portion of each year in a new city every night - and when settled in Sydney, is constantly between jobs. It makes perfect sense that 'New Kind Of Cross' deals explicitly with themes of isolation, introversion and sometimes anger. The music on this record is heavy and unforgiving.

4 - CONTREPOISON - ...UNTIL NEXT MORNING - (12") 
AVANT!


Contrepoison is the solo project by Pierre-Marc Tremblay, young Canadian musician whos been also involved in other extreme bands in the last years. First step has been the self-released demo tape '...Until Next Morning' followed by the double-cassette compilation 'Around The Dragon's Broken Neck Hangs The Medal Of St. Lazarus' on Hospital Productions, both sold out damn soon. So now it is time for a proper vinyl release and here we go: the 45rpm 12" press of '...Until Next Morning'. As you may already know Contrepoison is the French meaning of the word "antidote" and Contrepoison can be seen as an antidote for love. This 4-track EP shows the darkest and most anguished side of the human feeling, where drum machines sound like heartbeats and synthesizers are as liquid as tears. Deep, somber vocals filled with sorrow and anger cap it all. 45 rpm 12" vinyl + insert. A press of 350.

6 - DIGE, SALLY - HOLDING ON (IT) - (LP) 
AVANT!


Sally Dige is a multidisciplinary artist known for her darkly poetic yet highly danceable electro-pop songs, DIY stylistic videos, design and visual art. 'Holding On' was created during the time of intense inner turmoil. These are songs written for dance floors, but sung about loneliness, death and the meaninglessness of existence. Sally's work tows the line between a blissful innocence and a heavy darkness. Think Gina X's flavored post punk-disco rubbing against 'Twitch'-era Ministry's lost Sade collab, or Enya on LSD after a break up. This European version comes with a different cover.

7 - DREAM AFFAIR - ENDLESS DAYS - (LP) 
AVANT!


Dream Affair is a cold wave group based in Brooklyn, NY. Since the release of their sold-out EP All I Want last fall, the band has expanded their initial references of UK post-punk and French cold wave to incorporate sounds of Wax Trax industrial and 4AD shoegaze. Comparisons have also been made with bands such as The Cure and Depeche Mode. Their debut full-length album perfects the cold dichotomy: the conflict and balance between bleak indifference and struggling emotions. Romanticism in the vocals and guitars are vetted against the industrial chill of the rhythm section. The result is a testament of self-awareness, absurdity, and isolation.

8 - DRIFT - BLACK DEVOTION - (12") 
AVANT!


Nathalia Bruno is a founding member of Phosphor and also plays in Leave The Planet. As Drift she creates sounds that may remind of bands such as Tropic Of Cancer and Northern Electronics' Fodd Dod. However, there's a brighter component to Drift's music, showcased by the shiny tracks 'Grave' and 'Hard To Accept', as well as the more ethereal 'Dreams In Silkscreen' and 'Say It Right'. Featuring six songs, 'Black Devotion' marks the birth of what Nathalia herself calls devotional synth.

9 - DRIFT - GENDERLAND - (12") 
AVANT!


Throbbing beats are punctuated with melodies, vocals float in layers, while their dreamy veil disguises a strong message. DRIFT.'s first EP 'Black Devotion' was all about searching for a sound, but this next recording signals a shift, a drift towards self-determination. It's a PVC-clad step into the murky mixed-message waters of 21st century gender politics.

10 - FATHER MURPHY - RISING. A REQUIEM FOR FATHER MURPHY - (LP) 
AVANT!


Composed in the classical 'Requiem' format, 'Rising' follows the 'Trilogy Of The Cross', a series of records that recounts the journey of the fictional character Father Murphy, and subsequently the band itself. The album was mixed and mastered by long-time collaborator Gregory Saunier (Deerhoof), who is instrumental in helping craft Father Murphy's sonic descent over the years. 45 rpm black vinyl double LP, comes in gatefold sleeve!

11 - FUNK POLICE - HOT WE ARE FUNK WE PLAY - (LP) 
AVANT!


Yep, the French, again! Looks like there's no way not to deal with these guys for us at Avant!... After the Waiting For The Cheerleaders To Get Drunk 7" by The Feeling Of Love and that little gem that has been the Scorpion Violent LP, we are really glad to release one more piece of insanity outta Metz/Strasbourg. Funk Police is Guillaume from AH Kraken/The Feeling Of Love, Nafi from Scorpion Violent/The Dreams/The Anals, and their old mate Thierry (previously in Dust Breeders and Flowers Of Darmstadt) and they bring the typical no-wave blind fury of La Grande Triple Alliance Internationale De l'Est all over some smoky dark funk grooves. Like nowadays Slits, Pop Group or Public Image Ltd., Funk Police steal black rhythms from an hypothetical rainforest and hurl them into their concrete jungle, while James Brown and James Chance stand there nodding. Throbbing bass, sharp upbeat guitars and schizoid vocals over the haunting tribal drums. Ten damp tracks on 33rpm black vinyl with stunning artwork by Sylvie P.!

12 - HAND OF DUST - WALK IN WHITE - (7") 
AVANT!


Hand Of Dust is a trio from Copenhagen. They play a personal kind of dark rock music, rooted in folk and with a special focus on songwriting and lyrics. Their music -oddly- sounds like neo-folk with Dead Moon and Gun Club influences!

13 - HOLIDAY INN - TORBIDO - (LP) 
AVANT!


A collaboration between Gabor (Aktion, Metro Crowd) on voice and Frenchman Bob Junior (Trans Upper Egypt, Bobsleigh Baby, Hiss) on synth and drum machine, they leave their best on stage, live shows have cemented their ill reputation: Gabor is a lanky dude and struts on stage with a boxer's pre match ritual dance, ready to vomit words in your face while Bob's composure never fails to spread misery and mystery through his vintage noise assault setup.

14 - HORD - PARALLELES - (LP) 
AVANT!


Hord is the solo project of Bordeaux-based synthwave producer Sebastien Carl. Started in 2014, Sebastien has been able to gather a cult fan-base around his creation in a short time, collaborating with artists as Hante., Winter Severity Index and Black Bug. After a first album on Giallo Disco and an EP on SNTS' own label Sacred Court, this is his second full-length record. 'Parallels' features eight compositions that further focus Hord's distinguishing features: abstract almost liquid synth passages, deep analogue beats, veiled vocals. Uptempo or slow, instrumental or sung, danceable or rarefied it doesn't really matter as the album as a whole ends up resulting in a strong cinematic appeal. A soundtrack for a journey away from the present time and into an intimate, maybe even nostalgic dimension.

15 - HOT GUTS - WILDS - (LP) 
AVANT!


The second full-length from Philadelphia based post-industrial group HOT GUTS. What started off as a raw and gritty post-punk band in 2007 eventually evolved into a more refined foray into territories that cross between the electronic and organic, as well as the harsh and beautiful. Currently a duo, Wes Russell's signature rich baritone and unorthodox guitar stylings (at times more reminiscent of construction machinery than a guitar) are still very present while counterpart Shari Wallin (also of Void Vision) provides the synths and drum machines as well as backing vocals. Within this web of minimal electronics there are hints of EBM, neofolk, tribal industrial but there is an element of experimentalism that has always been present in Hot Guts that keeps things sounding fresh, and strangely contemporary throughout the recordings.

21 - LUST FOR YOUTH - SOLAR FLARE - (LP) 
AVANT!


Lust For Youth is the youngest duo to come out of Goteborg, Sweden, the infamous town which gave birth to such acts as Attestupa and RTB Records. After one 7-inch split with Blessure Grave and an handful of obscure tapes, this two-piece band gets its first full-length out now both. Twelve tracks like a never-ending flow, blending industrial murky noise, dark-wave gloomy atmospheres and lo-fi synth pop catchy melodies, all drenched in reverberation and beaten by distant vocal chants. Fans of Cremations-era Cold Cave will be very pleased as well as all those who keep on being in love with the everlasting charm of Cabaret Voltaire, New Order and Absolute Body Control. 33 rpm 12" black vinyl. A press of 300.

23 - MOVIE STAR JUNKIES - JUNKYEARS - (12") 
AVANT!


In 2009 Avant! put out this 12" collecting the early recordings by this great band. Wax testified what wasn't there on their albums: 22 minutes circa of raw, raunch, paranoid garage/blues punk in the vein of The Gun Club, The Birthday Party and Suicide. Sold out soon, Avant! are now pleased to have a new edition in copper sleeve with white silkscreen. Only 200, but many of them with the band on tour, so order fast! This new edition comes in copper sleeve with white silkscreen.

24 - NATURAL ASSEMBLY - ARMS OF DEPARTURE - (12") 
AVANT!


Natural Assembly is a new two piece dark synth-wave group from London, UK, consisting of J.Cannon & Z.Zsigo. Since the first demo tape released in 2011, when the band was Jesses solo project, a few limited cassettes have emerged. The sound is somehow similar to what our comrades Lust For Youth and Contrepoison offer, still these guys have developed their own version of what we like to call industrial synth-pop, with Arms of Departure being the first major work. Influenced by Front 242 and New Order, pounding drum machines sustain liquid synthesizer melodies and reverberated vocals beat until decay. Six tunes to mark a personal debut that will be the perfect soundtrack for your last days on Earth.

25 - NIGHT SINS - NEW GRAVE - (LP) 
AVANT!


Born by members of hardcore bands Salvation and Mother Of Mercy, Night Sins is the aural proof that life does not walk so dark all over Europe alone. Emerging sometime around 2011 under the oppressive skies of Philadelphia, these overcast malcontents are fitly connected to a city engrossed in shadow-soaked vices and dilapidated architecture. Not to imply that there isn't a comforting sort of gloominess in this musical malaise as Night Sins frolic down a musical path originally cut by The Sisters of Mercy and Clan of Xymox, with enough hints of Pink Turns Blue, The Mission, and other extensions into 80's darkwave to produce memorable songwriting that stands on its own. Bass and drums punch through the mist thick as thieves, guitar lines circle like falcons overhead, minimal synths street clean some of the residual dirt, and singer-songwriter Kyle Kimball's vocals confidently press through an intimate fog. There is a brilliant light in the midst of dimness, and Night Sins is carrying the torch.

28 - PHASE FATALE - SKYSCRAPER - (12") 
AVANT!


Phase Fatale is a techno project of Hayden Payne (also behind the cold wave band Dream Affair), based in Berlin via New York. This debut-EP moves between noise-ridden soundscapes and minimal industrial techno rhythms influenced by EBM classics, such as Front 242 and Klinik, to modern contemporaries like Silent Servant and Ancient Methods. Hayden Payne approaches his music with a youthful and unique touch turning disparate sounds into driving and danceable noise. All tracks were recorded live, using only hardware synthesizers, drum machines and effects.

29 - PLEASURE SYMBOLS - PLEASURE SYMBOLS - (12") 
AVANT!


Pleasure Symbols from Brisbane, Australia is the post punk/synth duo project of Phoebe Paradise and Jasmine Dunn. Desolate but not devoid, Pleasure Symbols engulfs honest pop music under a sea of slowed, cold synth and bass. Ritualistic vocals perpetually convey a sense of desperation, but not without fortitude, as the band's unembellished restraint is continually on show.

30 - PROFIT PRISON - SIX STRANGE EP - (12") 
AVANT!


Profit Prison is the solo work of Seattle-based Parker Lautenschlager, previously member in the hardcore band Marrow, power electronics act Anteinferno, and black metal cult band Bhereg. Conceived in 2016, Profit Prison explores lyrical themes of isolation, estrangement, deprivation and paranoia against an aural backdrop of synthpop, post-punk and abstract industrial music. Inspired by Franz Kafka as much as Kraftwerk, Profit Prison achieves a cold minimalism that speaks to the nightmarish dystopia in which it was created.
