Welcome Home

by Matt Caskitt & The Breaks

"Hi, I'm Matt Caskitt and these are The Breaks!" If you were seeing us live right now as you're reading this, that's what you'd be hearing. When my marriage fell apart and Caskitt went on indefinite hiatus, I wrote a bunch of songs that turned into this album: "Welcome Home".

Insatiable

by hangnails

Greetings humans and non-humans of the extended Punktastic Universe. This song is from an EP we made in 2017. It's about the unsettling encroachment of the manipulative digital advertising world into our personal lives. It has electric guitar and piano, which we all know is a winning combination.

Poisoned Lungs

by One Million Motors

‘Poisoned Lungs’ was written and recorded throughout 2020; matching the frustration caused by the chaotic stop and start nature of each social restriction. There’s a rage behind this single. A harder take on our previous sound; we're playing faster and we're singing about things that matter.

Fear Up

by Crazy Arm

We're back! It's been seven years since our last record and we have a new album out (on 29th January 2021). 'Fear Up' is taken from it. It sounds (in our tiny minds) like Ennio Morricone conducting the Constantines. Giddy up. x

Harker here! We're excited to be sharing the first single from our new album Axiom (April 23rd). The Beast Must Die is based on the idea of Mono-consciousness by Colin Wilson, who focused on striving to live with a heightened sense of meaning and avoiding a closed mindset. Plus noise! We like noise.

Hey my name is Luke Fewtrell-Bowers. I play guitar in a doom band called Opium Lord; when I'm not doing that I play and sing my own brand of anti-authoritarian folk music, rooted in my upbringing in punk rock but also inspired by the protest singers of the past century. Thanks for your time!
