I created a record label called Non-Minutiae Records by releasing the 3rd album of If I Look Strong; You Look Strong in 2014. This release employed a varied synthesized sound! Non-Minutiae Records welcomed FUCKWORLD with the release NMR02 FUCKWORLD 1ST S/T during Sled Island 2015! The 4th If I Look Strong; You Look Strong Full-Length, COMFORTLESS AURAL FILTH FOR UNRELENTING EAR PUNISHMENT became the records first vinyl 12” in 2015. It is available at live shows and the Webstore. The 2016 dual 0 release of Ghost Factory and FUCKWORLD/Super-Malevolent Deity are in their second pressing and sold out respectively! 2017 included the instant classic, already sold out PRETTYUGLY First/Last/Only album and the sold out Maggoty Recombination by If I Look Odder; U Look Otter. 2019 welcomes the most ambitious If I Look Strong; You Look Strong album as NMR08: ENTROPY. Releasing May 2019!
Releases are listed below!
NMR01 If I Look Strong; You Look Strong - (Say Band Name in Robot Voice) 2014
16 songs, 54 minutes, 100 copies on Ecopack CD with Full-Color 4-Panel artwork. SOLD OUT
This Album is IILS;YLS 3rd Full-Length. Noah decided to leave behind his drums and guitars and hide away with his laptop to create a digital synthscape we could all enjoy! Each track is particularly inspired, and referenced obviously. He's summed up his enjoyment of RDJ, JSB, and 植松 伸夫 into a new and exciting sound! HIGH SCORE!!
NMR02 FUCKWORLD - 1ST S/T 2015
28 songs, 6.5 minutes, 30 copies on handmade CDR with unique artwork for each copy. SOLD OUT
This album is FUCKWORLDs first Full-Length. They invented the genre Post-Grindcore so their songs could all be shorter than a minute. 7-20 seconds is common, with 45-50 seconds being the epics of the album. Local luminaries Liam Zanin (Vocals), Ethan Vilu (Drums), and Noah (Synth) team up and write out the songs on paper before attempting to perform them. For fans of The Locust, FULLOFHELL, Agoraphobic Nosebleed, Scab Addict, Merzbow and just generally noisy shit. They have played 1 show: Sled Island 2015
NMR03 If I Look Strong; You Look Strong - COMFORTLESS AURAL FILTH FOR UNRELENTING PUNISHMENT 2015
40 songs, 35 minutes, 300 copies on Black Vinyl with Full-Color art, Handwritten Lyrics, and Credit insert. 200 copies left
This album is IILS;YLS 4th Full-Length. Noah is at his darkest here, performing all the instruments and vocals, and taking on the genres of Grindcore, Heavy-Metal, Metalcore, Death Metal, PowerViolence, Harsh Noise, Crust, D-Beat and Black Metal. This record squashes rumours. Esoteric instruments (for Grindcore anyways) such as Saxophone, Violin, and Synthesizer are injected into the mixture. The live band containing Connor Scott (Drums) and Eric Andrews (Bass/Production) toured this release in the summer of 2015 and have plans to hit the road again soon!
NMR04 音楽逆襲世界へ - FUCKWORLD/Super-malevolent deity - 2016
24 songs, 10 minutes, 50 copies on Uniquely Colored Cassette with Double-Sided Paper-Cases for each copy. SOLD OUT
RELEASED ON JANUARY 27TH 2016 @ THE SHIP & ANCHOR
This album is a split alllll the way from Japan! It sees Noise and Visual Art mastermind Heidy Youko teaming up with local Noise-Punkers FUCKWORLD. FUCKWORLDs 23 tracks see them at, simultaneously, their noisiest and cleanest yet. Bizarre synth squelches, impossibly-effected vocals, and punishing drums crash into samples and emotive song writing, as well as pure hilarity. Heidy Youko goes in just the opposite direction with an extremely loud burst of gibberish chanting, broken keyboards, and glitched out drum machines all presented in the idiom of noise.
NMR05 Ghost Factory - Nothing Kid 2016
12 songs, 30 minutes, 150 copies on SlipCase CD with Full-Color artwork. FIRST PRESSING SOLD OUT. CURRENTLY IN 2ND PRESSING.
RELEASED ON JANUARY 27TH 2016 @ THE SHIP & ANCHOR
This album is the long, and I mean LONG awaited follow up to the amazing 2006 release Happy Good. Rob Gorezecki has been steadily and admirably building his perpetual finesse, fanbase, songwriting ability, and incredibly sarcastic stage banter ever since he debuted in bands like Voices and Yuckiest Prince back in 2005. After those projects dissolved Rob set out on his own to show his more tender side. His tender side is still really pissed off at times though. He recorded these sounds at Evius Studios so you know it sounds good! The songs are heartfelt (so heartfelt(seriously)) love/hate letters to parental abuse, alcoholism, and Okotoks. It borrows from Folk-Punk, Pop-Punk, and Math-Rock and comes up with a wholly new and devout sound. The other really cool part about this CD is when you buy it you get 10$ off the Vinyl 12" when it is released! So this CD counts towards the future purchase of the Full-Length. See you guys at the show!
NMR06 PRETTYUGLY - JUNK FOOD 2016
7 songs, 21 minutes, 50 copies on DigiPack CD with 2-sided Tubular artwork. SOLD OUT
RELEASED ON OCTOBER 21ST 2016 @ THE NIGHT OWL
Colin, Dylan, Jenny, and Nate found themselves coming onto the scene violently; Trashing, and ultimately, getting booed off stage at their first show. Since then (ancient history) they have been rocking 'n rolling, skating 'n sliding, combining equal parts FIDLAR, Nirvana, and Pixies, all whilst honing their pop songwriting craft. Each member adds a unique voice on their instrument which culminates in surfy tunes perfect to blaze to after a night of partying! Come snatch up one of the few 50 physical copies as there is a Compact Disc Exclusive track!
NMR07 If I Look Odder; You Look Otter - Maggoty Recombination 2017
4 songs, 13 minutes, 50 copies on CD with Full-Color artwork. SOLD OUT
RELEASED ON APRIL 19TH 2017 @ BROKEN CITY
OdderOtter is welcomed aboard the Non-Minutiae Records family with this album! Boasting an impressive 8 albums released over 3 years, OdderOtter is a local MC and Producer whose extremely introspective, cultured, and esoteric lyrics often run on sentences like a DFW book. Suddenly If I Look Strong; You Look Strong had some hip-hop/trap tracks languishing with no vocalist! The idea for the 2 to work together was natural and instantaneous. Having already released the "WallPaper in Hell EP" over 1 year ago, this duo perfects and further hones their sound and brand with this 2nd release "Maggoty Recombination."
NMR08 - If I Look Strong; You Look Strong - Entropy 2019
20 songs, 1 hour and 37 minutes, 150 copies on Double CD with Full-Color 4-Panel Artwork.
RELEASING MAY 2019 @ AB MINI-TOUR
What can be said? This is If I Look Strong; You Look Strong’s most expansive and far reaching album of them all. They’ve combined all of their previous genres of Electronic, Grindcore, Black Metal, Math Rock, Pop-Punk, and Noisy AF jams, with some new sounds including Post-Rock, Ambient, Pop-Ballad, Piano Sonata, Worship Music, and whatever other crazy shit Noah came up with! It’s a concept album about a Molecule born of the Big Bang and it’s journey through the Universe which leads it through many physics concepts, religions, and technological devices. We are collaborating with Double-Lunch Records to release the Double Cassette!
