2022 titles

Before you proceed, we’d like to point out that two distinct versions of this page exist and you may decide you’d prefer one over the other. While both pages highlight the same titles overall, one page (this one, that you’re on right now) has all the details, artists, album titles, cover art, etc. removed leaving only a brief description of each album, which we thought might be a kinda fun way to objectively peruse what we released this year. The other page is fully featured and has all of the identifying information visible. Either page you choose, thanks for checking out what we’ve released this year!

FFO: Hiatus Kaiyote, toe, Mid-Air Thief, tricot, American Football, CHON, Yvette Young, exploratory dreamworld math-rock infused with jazz, electronic, and classical

The 12 songs that constitute [ALBUM], the third full-length from the [LOCATION] trio [ARTIST], explore the deep spacetime continuum that consciousness cannot capture. Beyond the trio’s staple instrumentation of guitar, bass, and drumset, [ALBUM] blends in wind instruments, traditional drums, and [LOCATION] narrative.

FFO: Cornelius, Sufjan Stevens, Rei Harakami, Grizzly Bear

The pre-cursor to [ARTIST]'s cult-acclaimed album [ALBUM], [ALBUM] exhibits a distinct universality, merging disparate sounds and styles into a cohesive, electronic-infused folk amalgam that tactfully blurs the lines between organic and synthetic. Listeners are led through enrapturing passages of swirling melodies underscored with eloquent plucks, strums, and bursts of bubbly glitches. Individual phrases drift into one another as if in a dream, cohered by entrancing hooks and vocal soundscapes. [ALBUM] is a compelling accomplishment of both composition and production, bending as it does to its unique contours of consonance and dissonance, always resolving to a place of calm and beauty.

Already a fan of [ARTIST] and heading in a heavier direction, it was an easy choice for [OTHER ARTIST] to decide on doing a split release with the [LOCATION]-based hardcore band. “[We] wanted to make something unabashedly trans. Two trans bands. Songs about trans issues. Cover by a trans artist. We wanted to make something for the girls to pop off to,”explains [OTHER ARTIST]’s [PERSON] of [ALBUM]'s genesis.

There is a distinct, refreshing current that charges [ALBUM]. An energized pop-focused collection of tracks born from what bandleader [PERSON] describes as “the contrast between total formlessness and rigid claustrophobia”.

FFO: Stereolab, Helena Deland, Arcade Fire, Ada Lea, Julie Doiron, expansive pop with inflections of exploratory folk

[ALBUM] is in many ways a reflection of myself, asking the question, 'who am I when it all stops?'” Being stuck at home indefinitely allowed [ARTIST] to examine [ARTIST]'s relationship to rest on a more critical level. With this newfound downtime, [ARTIST] began to realize an active pursuit of rest, with deliberate and kind intention, eventually turning back to songwriting as part of [ARTIST]'s new practice. The resultant five songs that comprise [ALBUM explore [ARTIST]’s mindful intentions through a graceful amalgam of tender pop with inflections of jazz, backed with orchestral experimentation.

FFO: Tricot, toe, The Brave Little Abacus

[ARTIST]’s music exudes pure emotion. It’s chaotic, non-linear, poetic, and gorgeous. When the opportunity to work together arose, it was an easy choice. Their peerless musicianship and body of work share many threads with the history of our label, so we’re simply thrilled to partner with them and help share their music with a wider audience.

FFO: Mannequin Pussy, Circa Survive, Paramore, Now Now, Forth Wanderers

[LOCATION]’s [ARTIST] write eruptive emo songs that embrace the edges of pop and hardcore. The kind of band whose members are fully immersed in their local scene, the quintet’s sound takes wide-spectrum influence from its environment. The result is a mix of complex song structures and flourishes of technical acumen, wholly unconcerned with genre, yet evoking the specific styles of touchstones such as Paramore and Circa Survive.

“This record is a representation of everything that has led me to this point. It’s been a long, bizarre path,” says [ARTIST] of both [ARTIST]'s life and [ARTIST]'s journey to make this record. [ALBUM] is a record that blooms in beauty over time—the kind of record that you can take anywhere in any season, as any version of yourself.

[ARTIST] is the songwriting, liberation, and poetry project of multifarious artist [PERSON]. Starting in 2014 and breaking through with 2016’s [ALBUM], [ARTIST]’s work spans a self-made spectrum of sound from gravitic, soulful rock to soliloquy to unabashed hip hop.

FFO: Mothers, Great Grandpa, Duster, Palm, florid indie rock

The majority of the nine slithery songs that comprise [ARTIST]’s [ALBUM] were originally cuts that didn’t make their debut [ALBUM]. But after collectively moving across the country from [LOCATION] to [LOCATION], the scrapped tracks transformed substantially into florid, at times entrancing compositions.

FFO: Trace Mountains, Told Slant, Emperor X, sprawling and ornate rock

There is an immediate and palpable sense of joy that jumps out from [ALBUM], the fifth full-length album from bedroom recording project [ARTIST]. But the record is steeped equally in loss: loss of family, beloved dogs, friendships, romantic love, and most of all loss of selfhood. Backwardly inspired by the wealth of loss, [ALBUM] sees songwriter [PERSON] discovering a renewed sense of appreciation for life in the face of hardship, freshly emboldened to move through the world with a loosened grip on life.

FFO: Swirlies, Horse Jumper of Love, Blue Smiley, Spirit of the Beehive, Pinback, Alex G, Machine Girl, Pachinko, Drop Nineteens, Astrobite

[ALBUM] is a split offering from the genre-defiant groups [ARTIST] and [OTHER ARTIST]. Elements of breakcore, shoegaze, and obtuse slacker rock find home on [ALBUM], at times with no bridge at all between the disparate styles. On paper, the combination of styles may read as cacophonous or incompatible, but the end result is instead a measured contrast of sounds, a reflection of the inescapable influence of our chaotic time and the groups’ environments.

Though their sonic palette is vast, [ARTIST] craft a cohesive aesthetic to carry frontman [PERSON]’s thematically heavy songwriting, which touches on loss of all kinds against the backdrop of a nihilistic world.
