Big Update at Heavy Ripples: the non-profit Distribution Arm of Ripple Music
Here at Heavy Ripples Distro, we're extremely proud to have been asked by the excellent DHU Records to help distribute in the USA the brand new, repress of the long-sold-out High Plains, by Youngblood Supercult. Outlaws of the Sun raves, "Youngblood Supercult have created a blues/doom/stoner metal riff-fest you’ll never get bored of." And we couldn't agree more. With High Plains Youngblood Supercult have set the mood and absorb you into their magical trip with a deep rooted feel of 70s vibes and grooves. Atmospheric heavy rock music. Dark and cult, the way we dig it! We'll be getting a very limited supply of these. WHITE NIGHTS EDITION LIMITED TO 150 COPIES PRESSED. GATEFOLD JACKET ON PURPLE W/ MILKY CLEAR SPLATTER 2X12" VINYL Went on sale Friday May 11. Won't last long. www.heavyripples.bigcartel.com
We're also thrilled to announce a partnership with the Black Space Riders to distribute their new albums and back catalog. So, with that, we're proud to say that AMORETUM Vol. 1, the fifth BLACK SPACE RIDERS album, is here! Between fat, dirty riffs and trippy delays, everything that sounds good is allowed; the album is interspersed with a flowing groove throughout and an ever-present atmosphere that embraces the listener. Heavy, sometimes proggy, often psychedelic, always engaging and almost catchy and danceable, AMORETUM Vol. 1 takes us by the hand, shows us the dark side, and then wants to give us the hope back that we so often painfully miss. Available on LP or CD. www.heavyripples.bigcartel.com
Really too much good stuff in the distro to fit in here, so let's conclude by saying that we've also partnered up with the excellent International label, Forbidden Place Records, with killer release like Devil's Witches and Arteaga. That Devil's Witches in particular can't seem to stay in stock for more than a fleeting glimpse. Occult, retro-sixties heavy psych, this sells out in all formats. We have CD's in stock, plus many other Forbidden Place Records releases, so please come by and check it out.
