Leather Jacuzzi - Slander, Lies and Soda (2017)

We're going to get about as far to the other side of the spectrum from yesterday's Hermitess tape with this one. Leather Jacuzzi are back with a second tape, this time delivering a four-song blast of tongue-in-cheek hardcore. We have to admit, part of us loves this just because of how close it gets us to a SIDS reunion.

We're going to mix things up, and send you to the Leather Jacuzzi cdbaby page this time.

Hermitess - Hermitess (2017)

As usual, this year's Sled Island yielded a couple of new tapes for the CCPS collection, starting with this one from former Deadhorse/Devonian Gardens harpist Jennifer Crighton. Hermitess' tape (or CD or LP, depending on which media you chose) is built around Crighton's clear voice and harp, with synth drones and Eric Hamelin's drums creating a mesmerizing, hypnotic set of songs that lean more towards psychedelia than Celtic music.

Get it from the Hermitess bandcamp.

CCPS Miscellany: Naked and the Dead - Fully Clothed and Alive! (1991)

Along with Joker's first tape (as posted yesterday), Corey Hamilton passed along this early slice of The Naked and the Dead featured future Old Reliable member Shuyler Janson, and certainly wear the influence of Jr. Gone Wild.

Which is not at all a bad thing.

Joker - First Laugh (1988)

Well, lookie here. After 10 years, it turns out the CCPS can still provide some relevant content once in a while! Huge thanks to Corey Hamilton for finding this in a mall in Edmonton and sending it our way - it's a real treat to have this, the first tape from Calgary skate-metal dudes Joker.

There's a lot of overlap between the material on this tape and Laugh and a Half (hence the title of the second tape?), but it looks like there's one track on here that didn't get carried forward.

Have another laugh here!
