THE DEATH SET
Following the huge success of their first 2 releases on Rabbitfoot/Morphius, the Death Set signed to Ninja Tune/Counter Records for their 'Worldwide' release, and followed that with the Michel Poiccard LP before recently signing with Dim Mak. Somewhere along the way,. someone at google realized what we had known about a decade before: The Death Set belonged in every household in the world. Maybe not the band itself, but at least a laptop with kids playing The Death Set's massive "Negative Thinking" track while they ran around breaking stuff. Respect! Viva Beau Velasco Velasco.

BIG NEWS FROM MORPHIUS RECORDS
We are revamping the Morphius Records label news section for the time being please read our main distribution site news for all the up-to-date and latest tidbits.
Hymnen "Inferno In Vogue " CD
Hymnen (him-nen), which formed in late 2004, taking its name from Stockhausen's composition of the same title. The quartet set out to create aggressive rock music but avoid the clichés associated with conventional punk/metal. By easing off the distortion boxes and wall of sound mixes, they crafted a stunning push-and-pull tension between rhythm and melody. More info | More releases by this artist
Coffinberry "God Dam Dogs" CD
Like Interpol after an espresso bong, the guitar-driven Coffinberry jangles, rattles, and rocks. Frontman-guitarist Nicholas Cross warbles and wails infectiously, just out of harmony with guitarist Tony Janicek's gentle discord. As contemporary as it sounds, the band has a timeless quality.

Motio "Motio" CD
Not afraid to hurt your ears a little bit, they fused Steve Albini-esque production techniques and guitar arrangements sonically akin to Scratch Acid & early Pixies with the pop sensibility of This Year’s Model-era Elvis Costello. This CD is a re-mastered reissue of their original 4 song EP. More info | More releases by this artist
Soul Cannon "Kaboom" CD
More than just a band, Soul Cannon is a vision that encapsulates a wide range of musical genre and tradition with a high realm of artistically driven lyricism and composition skills. On their debut album, Kaboom, each of the 11 tracks develops organically, unfolding original musical perspectives on function and form to distill a unique sound that resonates from the intersection of bands such as The Roots and Deerhoof.

Thrushes "Sun Come Undone" CD
On Sun Come Undone, their debut full length, Thrushes craft gorgeous noise pop and swirling dream rock.

Madeleine Peyroux, & William Galison "Got You On My Mind" CD
