Helms Alee at Cake Shop (more by Markus Shaffer)
Helms Alee

Similar to their labelmates Torche and Big Business, Helms Alee mixes the sweet with the blistering on their latest LP, Weatherhead. The Seattle band, which contains Ben Verellen of the much revered Harkonen, doles out booming riffs and catchy melodies in their hardcore inflected confections that will have you raising your clenched fist in celebration while you sing along. Weatherhead is currently on sale via Hydrahead with its official release date set for Tuesday, but you can exclusively stream it in its entirety here and now, below.

After a record release celebration with Akimbo, Brothers of The Sonic Cloth, and Norska on June 29th at Neumos in Seattle, Helms Alee will pick up a show in Austin at Red 7 on 7/6 before joining Torche and Big Business on tour in July. The trio will tag Music Hall of Williamsburg on 7/20 and tickets are still available. OR, if you're feeling lucky you can try your hand at winning a pair AND a 2LP copy of Weatherhead at our Facebook!

^ If this was another indie band, I can see how that has merit. No need to be a goon.

"Great. More bearded cunts." Is there a shortage of non-bearded cunts?

I was at the release show yesterday was absolutely amazing. Sounded so good. BTW -- no one has beard in the band... At least the two girls don't :)

Hey, wonderful to design a media player with no volume control. Brilliant.
