Kjetil Møster/Staer - split LP
This split LP is cool in so many ways. First; my great friend Kristoph plays in the fantastic Staer, a band that creates off the chain groovy noise jazz, in the vein of Noxagt and MoHa!. This is their first physical recording, limited to 200 copies, put out by Mozart Kebab, Action Jazz and Drid Machine Records (non other than Kjetil Brandsdal of Noxagt’s own label). Second; it’s one sided and clear. One side is screen printed by Kjetil, and the other side plays music two ways! The Kjetil Møster track plays from edge to middle, while the Staer track plays from label to middle. And off course, third; there are two damn juicy tracks hidden in those groves!
Stavanger (and Bergen) noise at its most brilliant!
Calling Gina Clark - s/t 5”
Super spastic and chaotic German screamo put out by Crucificados Pelo Sistema. Always been just a tad too jazzy for my taste, but I really love the puzzle piece and the sewn pouch the 5” comes in.
Ok, first off; the pictures don’t do the collection justice. My computer is down, so I have to use my camera phone. I don’t know how to flip the photos, so vear with me, ok?
Second; this collection is just the music. Not the shirts, patches, buttons, posters, etc. I have laying around.
I’ll write the versions and color, but I won’t add how limited, etc. It’s just too much work (but I might add it on later). If nothing else is stated, the vinyl is black.

Bravo Fucking Bravo - II
Limited edition out of 50 gold screened version of debut album from these New Hampshire hardcore punks. Fantastic record put out by Friends Forever Records. The one sided marble grey vinyl has all the records’ lyrics etched onto the B side.
I have no idea what they put in the water in Malaysia, but those guys fucking know what’s up with emo-violence. These three tapes, Dramacoma, Josephine and Quantis, are among my all time favorite chaotic screamo releases, and they were all released by Utarid. Man, that fantastic Arwith Utarid is one fantastic man!
I thought I could kick this one of by posting a picture of all the releases on Listen To Aylin Records.

Worth mentioning that I purchased this at the fantastic record store Smash! Records during my exchange semester in Washington DC. Put out by Dischord, off course.
Floodgate - Troubles A’ Brewin’
Fantastic Californian mid90s emo/screamo put out by Ebullition and Youth Strike Chord. Loving the thiiiick quality paper insert. Another detail worth mentioning: A side matrix reads “Oh Thick!” and B side matrix reads “Oh Brick!”.
Utterly amazing political french screamo band, perhaps the best female fronted band in screamo history. Split between Austrian Sarja Records and Canadian Anima Records.
V/A - “Ghost Dance” 2 x 7” compilation. With Indian Summer, From Ashes Of, Third Rail Rhyme, Braid, Embassy, Cap ‘N Jazz
My Daïtro collection
Tactile Love vinyl blog
I figured I’d start a vinyl blog that’s nothing like my regular tumblr account. I love to read/look at other peoples vinyl blogs, and also I’m starting to get a pretty decent collection. I won’t write much, only pictures. It’ll mostly be punk, hardcore and screamo, but I won’t exclude anything and occationally I’ll post indie, metal or hip hop. And oh, I’ll post tapes too.
