Hot on the heels of their Jade Tree debut album, Anaesthetic[/], (which the New York Times named as one of it’s top underground releases of 2001), and the re-release of Frigid Forms Sell (JT1069) earlier this year, MILEMARKER are back with a six-song mini album/maxi EP showing that high-velocity progress is the MILEMARKER steez. Half of Satanic Versus was recorded in Chicago with STEVE ALBINI (NIRVANA, PIXIES, PJ HARVEY) at monolithic Electrical Audio; three songs which deliver on the promise of the live shows – bombastic heaviness, drone epics, flailing anthems and polemics aplenty. The flipside is the songs the band self-recorded – three various and sundry Electro-jams, alternately recalling the precision and coldness of KRAFTWERK and the crunktastic party-vibe of Around the World in a Day-era PRINCE AND THE REVOLUTION.
As an added bonus, Satanic Versus is also an enhanced CD EP containing live footage of MILEMARKER in action.

Girls Against BoysYou Can’t Fight What You Can’t See (JT1074) LP/CD released today. You Can’t Fight What You Can’t See is the seventh album for Girls Against Boys, their first full length release for Jade Tree and their latest since 1998′s lauded Freak*on*ica (Geffen). The album’s stripped-down, bare-assed rock is as dark, abrasive, and strangely compelling as the band has ever been. Get hip to GVSB today!
