Summer pre-orders, re-presses & new releases!

Preorders!


image

Cut Teeth's debut EP, Televandalism, completely rips and reminds us a lot of what we love so much about bands like These Arms Are Snakes. Please check them out and pick up the record if you haven't yet!

image

Prawn just got back back from their EU / UK tour and are getting ready to hit the road again with Calculator. Their new EP LP Ships is still up for pre-order on our store, though — an update on this one: it's been delayed significantly due to some issues with the audio on vinyl not sounding as good as we want it to — with the band having been overseas, for over a month, troubleshooting this has been a slower than normal process. We'll keep you posted.

Re-presses!


image

Essential summer listening just got a re-press.

image

Suis La Lune's phenomenal new full length record, Riala, went out of press really fast, you guys! We've got a re-press for it up now, though!

image

Long out of print, My Heart to Joy's Reasons to Be is the last hurrah of one of the most essential bands in our brief catalog. We've put in a re-press for the 7" and expect to have it in over the next month. Pre-order it here.

image

One of the more prominent splits we've ever been a part of, The Saddest Landscape & Pianos Become the Teeth's split 7" has also gotten a facelift and is getting the re-press treatment.

Out now!


We're more than halfway through what has been / is shaping up to be a really busy summer for us. In addition to the re-presses and pre-orders above, Pswingset's All Our False Starts LP, Sirs' S/T LP & Duck. Little Brother, Duck!'s Don't Take Our Filth Away! LP are all officially out now.

Welcome Pswingset to the ~family~!

image

Pswingset have become some of our very good friends and people whose opinions we’ve come to both value and respect over the years. They are, to be frank, the most unprolific prolific band I know. Let me explain through the lazy use of an unordered list:

  • Jordan used to play in Adios (Tribunal Records) and played bass for Annabel (Tiny Engines) for a bit.
  • Danny used to play in Little Compass (Negative Progression) and currently plays for Papermoons (Deep Elm) and had stints in River City High (Doghouse) and O Pioneers!! (Asian Man)
  • Joel plays in Junius (Prosthetic)
  • Colby used to play in MANS and currently in Brother/Ghost
  • They’ve collectively toured the planet more than a few times
  • Ever heard of the Kling Thing house?

I digress, though — They’re much more modest than I am. To me, this is a band compromised of individuals who know exactly what they want their sound to be, with the pedigree to achieve it.

We couldn’t be happier to be working with them on releasing their next record which they just finished recording in Denver and which will be mixed and mastered by Tim Gerak of The Six Parts Seven. I am listening to the roughs right now and I like them, you guys! More details on that later, though.

If this is your first time hearing of Pswingset but you enjoy our roster, I think you'll be as jazzed about them as we are. Check out their artist page on our site and get acquainted. Thanks!
