IZU - Going Salamander - (Highpoint Lowlife-USA-2006)

 A fantastic brew of warped yet warm future-melodies discordant breaks & twisted, languid synth action. Effortlessly includes some highly involving & hypnotic structures combined with a playful DIY techno attitude. A highly original, darkly atmospheric & hugely impressive round up from someone with a braindance orientated mind. Honestly, if you wanna hear an inventive & funky album then go no further....(review by beeslovesugarwater published on Discogs)

Highpoint Lowlife records started as an idle daydream atop Potrero Hill. Two bums by the names of Joey Hurt and Thorsten Sideb0ard were running a local dj night in a bar, where they would play a mixture of new and local indie pop, rock and electronica. Inspired by the success of their club night, they decided to push forward with the idea of the record label. The daydream came to fruition with a double disc compilation of local San Francisco bands that summer of 2001. Continuing that dream, Highpoint Lowlife strives to bring you the best in new alternative music. You can check out our website for more information.(from Internet Archive)  click me

v.a. - Tribute To Rudimentary Peni - (Pumpkin Records-UK-2012)

 Amazing compilation with a bunch of great bands covering the famous British anarcho punk band formed by Lead singer/guitarist Nick Blinko notorious for his witty, macabre lyrics and dark pen-and-ink artwork, prominently featured on all of Rudimentary Peni's albums.

Pumpkin Records  is a British DIY collective formed in 2006 in Manchester that do some not for profit releases, distribute records, run the Pumpkin Records Studio, put on gigs (in the Manchester area with SLit Promotions) and help with tour booking.(Bandcamp Page) Enjoy it.
