IRP02 - Capital "Signal Corps" CD
Anthemic, catchy, and angry, Signal Corps comes bursting out of the gate with 9 songs of gruff Long Island melodic hardcore molded by lives growing up in a part of the country synonymous with "suburbia". Long Island - a 100 mile long strip containing some of the most diverse locales and types of personalities on the east coast; Montauk, The Great South Bay, Brentwood, Stony Brook, all the way out to Brooklyn and Queens. Signal Corps is not an album from a band born of the Hamptons or even Brooklyn, but a group living in the withered shadow of the Levitt towns and the 1990’s hardcore scene. "Signal Corps" was named #2 album of 2006 by Pastepunk.com. Capital went on to release "Homefront" on Revelation, "Blind Faith" on Iron Pier, and Givers Takers on Underground Communique.
IRP04 - United States "Divorce Songs" CD

IRP06 - Agent "I Wouldn't Trade That For Anything" 7"
Agent play melodic hardcore rooted firmly in the Long Island "sound" but influenced heavily by Lifetime, Saves The Day and 90's indie rock bands like Braid and The Replacements. This EP is pervasively catchy. Hooks abound without sapping it of any emotional resonance. Like some of the best melodic hardcore songs, these short, fast, and catchy songs have lyrics that actually mean something. Bragging rights: Agent took the number three spot in Punknews.org’s best EP of 2006 list, third in Pastepunk.com’s list and fourth in Taketherisk.net’s (Germany).
