Hot Off the Press this week: Stolen Body Records in the UK delivers a brand new compilation entitled Vegetarian Meat, Fayetteville, AR quintet SW/MM/NG drop their new LP Feel Not Bad (Old Flame Records), Boston-based duo FAT CREEPS have a new LP Must Be Nice (Sophomore Lounge), and BUFFALO TOOTH from San Francisco releases their debut album Gardeners of the Devil’s Lettuce (Captcha Records).

Various Artists: Vegetarian Meat Complation: Stolen Body Records has put together a compilation of bands from the UK, France and USA and they’re calling it Vegetarian Meat. It’s the first in what the label hopes to be a long line of compilation records, coming on blue vinyl with red splatter. Tracklisting boasts a killer list of bands including Dusty Mush, Travel Check, Heaters, Taos Humm, Pain Dimension, Factotum, and Os Noctàmbulos (with a mix of tracks that may or may not appear on previous releases). Originally planned as a Record Store Day 2014 release, the album never made it to the plant in time, but it’s day has finally come – buy the album directly from Stolen Body Records on September 8th.

FAT CREEPSMust Be Nice LP:

Sophomore Lounge Records is dropping a new LP from Fat Creeps. Must Be Nice is loaded with 10 tracks that are ripe with jarring guitars, bright, breathy vocals and crashing rhythms. Streaming above, “He Comes in Loudly” is an obvious highlight. It’s bursting with a variety of elements, including glowing guitar waves, pleasant vocal interplay and wonky bass lines. They create a driving and angular sound in one effortless shot, providing us with a truly infectious song that’s reminiscent of Grass Widow or Warpaint. You can get the LP from Sophomore Lounge now.

BUFFALO TOOTHGardeners of the Devil’s Lettuce LP:

Released by Captcha Records in California, Gardeners of the Devil’s Lettuce is the debut LP from San Francisco trio Buffalo Tooth. The LP comes limited to 500 pieces on black and white splatter vinyl, containing a hot mess of speedy, metal-tinged punk and 70’s-flavored rock fueled by relentless fuzz guitars. Grab the LP from Captcha on September 30th as long as your heart can take it!

SW/MM/NGFeel Not Bad LP:

Released on August 26th, SW/MM/NG drop their debut LP Feel Not Bad on Old Flame Records. It’s loaded with nine tracks of jangly guitar pop, led by the bright crooning of Brian Kupillas. “Younger” comes with some surf-y tones, not to mention the pleasant vibe of a sun-drenched beach day. You can listen to a full stream of the LP right here, then snag the vinyl on the 26th.
