2014 Year of the Synth – 4 LP’s only 40$

Here we are wrapping up our yet another year with some great records added to our catalog. Why we have always has dabbled in many music styles this year was undoubtedly the year of the Synth over at FDH. We released 4 full length records each bringing its own sound to the table but working very well together as well. Until the start of 2015 we will offer a special deal with all 4 LP’s for just 40$.

TIT “TIT” – Debut 4 Song 12″ Ep from Bobby of The Hussy & Shawn of Digital Leather. Dark, weird, and catchy co-released with Volar Records (USA). (will include limited yellow vinyl while supplies last)

SGNLS “2″ – Following up a LP on Blind Prophet Records. This Snythpunk outfit is not afraid to venture into Psych, Kraut, and a bunch of other territory. Co-Released by P.Trash records (Germany). (will include limited DVD while supplies last)

The Bad Doctors “Burning City” – A Post Punk New Wave masterpiece that can easily be mistaken for a lost Factory Records release.

Teledrome “Teledrome” – Power Goth. Very catchy full length following up the debut 7″ on Hozac Records. Co-Released by P.Trash Records (Germany) & Mammoth Cave Recordings (Canada).

Snag all 4 LP’S for only 40$

Philly Synthpunk Pack (Sgnls – 2 LP & The Bad Doctors – Burning City LP) – 19$



Teledrome

The LP we released earlier this year from the Powergoth band Teledrome is now back in stock. The repress was 500 copies however only 100 of them made it to the USA so act fast as we don’t expect them to last long.
Teledrome LP – 11$




TIT-

The debut LP from TIT (Shawn of Digital Leather & Bobby of The Hussy) is up next for release. We expect these in mid December. The first 166 copies are on yellow wax. We have less then a dozen of the color version still available.
TIT LP – 11$





Spent Flesh –
A little self promotion here. Spent Flesh is my own band. FDH co-released out 10″ back in 2012. This coming spring we will be touring Europe with a new 7″ coming out of P.Trash records & Rockstar records. While Spent Flesh for sure doesn’t have the sound that I have moved FDH into over the last few years we will be touring with a huge FDH merch table. More info to come on that tour soon. If you want a taste of the weirdo hardcore we play feel free to visit http://spentflesh.bandcamp.com/. We have 2 tracks leaked from the Euro tour 7″ “Deviant Burial Customs”

Destruction Unit – Eclipse LP back in stock

In 2010 we released the Destruction Unit LP “Eclipse”. This album was quite a departure from the synthpunk background that the band was known for. This record was sort of the start of a new era of the band. Diving deeper into a epic Psych rock sound. Granted this record is less heavy then their most current works “Deep Trip” & one of my personal favorites “Void” however this record set the groundwork for these titles. You can check out the first track from the album “Time Traveler” over in our player on the right hand side of the page to get a taste of this albums vibe. We now have 100 copies back in stock on mixed color vinyl. Grab one today as they are sure to go quick.

The Bad Doctors – The first proper full length from this Philly Post Punk New Wavers is still going strong over at FDH. Its been seeing rave reviews. Here are a few examples.

“Channeling their inner Devo, Joy Division and even The Cure at times, Burning City is not only a great album with amazing tracks, it is a great change of pace for the Philly music scene” Aaron @ Radio Static

“The perfect album for an Exploding Hearts fan who’s been on the verge of getting into Interpol but never quite made the leap” Yellow Green Red

“A polished work of dark synthy songs that generate gratuitous comparisons to broody 80s bands” – Ruby @ Hexbeat

“Fun, Catchy and conventionally accessible Gothic New Wave” – MRR

“Synth-punk-new wave, when done wrong, can sound like a bad cliché, but on Burning City, Bad Doctors are doing it just right.” Ed @ Audio Ammunition


Since we have 2 great Philly Synth driven bands we are releasing records for in 2014 we are offering the Philly Synthpunk Pack also!

SGNLS – Pre-Orders now up

Have you ever thought about what it might sound like if Hawkwind recruited Genesis P Orridge and members of The Units into the band? Or if Kraftwerk merged with members of Pink Floyd and Crass to work on a concept record together? Of course you have not, and neither had I before I heard this record. While this Philadelphia based band has been churning out a slew of releases over the past half a decade including a great LP on Blind Prophet Records, this album really is the first time the whole Sgnls concept has been captured on a single work. With that said they also have stepped up their production quality well above anything they had released prior to this record. It somehow showcases the bands ability to make a sound that is truly blurs the lines of synth-punk, industrial, psych, and krautrock while still holding a pop sensibility. It keeps you on the edge of your seat with so many peaks and valleys that all work so well together, somehow never seaming to go to deep in any one direction, yet at the same time the album is still very cohesive. It really is a masterpiece that must be listened to as a in its entirety (and maybe a few times in its entirety) to truly appreciate the varied sound and styles it merges while sounding effortless doing it.

Spring / Early Summer 2014 Update

The Bad Doctors – So as many of you know I have been pushing very hard about this record. I have talked about this record for a good year now and “Burning City” has finally hit the streets a few weeks back. This record is a must have in my personal opinion as I really think this band is onto something and this is just the start. We spared no expense in making this one and it shows. From the killer artwork from Michael Haddad, to the top notch recording from Matthew Ricchini, and the endless hours of tweeking of tracks we could not be happier with the end result. In addition to our standard issue of the album on LP (with many different standard and silkscreened versions available), we also had a limited Euro version that came out on P.Trash records with one track swapped out for that version. We currently have our versions as well the P.Trash version available in our store. We are getting very low on the silkscreened version so act fast before its gone forever. We plan on having a very long relationship with these guys so you are bound to hear more about them from us in years to come. We also have the bands prior releases (an LP and 7″) available as well as a few extra tote bags and turntable slipmats.


Teledrome – This LP came out a few months and is soooo killer. If you have not listened yet get on it! We only have a handful of these left and we are not sure if a repress is happening or not.

SGNLS – This record is next in line and its gonna be a co-release with P.Trash. We will have a bunch of info coming very soon on this one. In the mean time visit our bandcamp page and check out a free sampler that contains a track from the album

TIT – A very exciting announcement. This is a brand new 2 man project with Shawn of Digital Leather & Bobby of The Hussy. We will be releasing the debut LP along with the always awesome Volar Records!

Random FDH news – We recently got some really awesome turntable slipmats. We are selling them for only 6$ a pop! We have them available over in the Merch section of the store.

We also recently dropped the price on alot of our backstock. We have tons of 7″s available for a dollar or two. We also dropped a few of our older LP’s down to just 5$.

Suicide Bong Tapes – Our all Philly tape label is still alive and well. We have a few new punk tapes coming in August from The Dolts and FTS. We still have a good stack of Likers tapes available, and a few Retreevers and Janelle tapes in stock. You can here the sounds of the tape label by clicking here

Digital Ding Dong – Yet another new venture for FDH is our all digital label we will be launching in July. Our goal with this is to try to release a new digital album every week! The focus of this label will be to not only help bands getting their new releases out digitally but will also act as a label for bands that have released a record but never got it released digitally. We will be kicking it all off with the first 4 releases being all the back catalog Strange Attractor releases that never got a proper digital release. We have about a dozen releases lined up for this venture as of now. This venture will not be genre specific! The only qualifier is that we need to like it. We are accepting demos now for this so if you want to send us a bandcamp or soundcloud link feel free to email us!

Primitive Hearts – US/ Canada Tour June 2014

Primitive Hearts are about to hit the road with Pookie & The Poodlez. Be sure to catch them in a city near you. We have about a half dozen copies of High and Tight still available from the first pressing. Grab it from our store today. Repress coming soon.
