The Blue Sky is Always Blue is made up of 15 transcendent pop songs for a super fun, post-apocalyptic dance party. Synth-driven pop with complex vocal layers, heavy bass lines, and plenty of hand-claps. Unlike anything else, but a good fit for fans of Kate Bush, CocoRosie, Bjork, and Laurie Anderson.

Comes with a full color poster showing images of handmade embroideries for each song...[ continued ] Poppet- The Crustacean

Glorious, brooding, and completely in a world of its own. The project of Molly Fischer (of Songs For Moms fame), Hot Tears nods to chamber-folk and a wide variety of punk and metal subgenres without fitting nicely into any box. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

With Erica Freas (of RVIVR) on cello, and a multitude of Olympia all-stars lending voices and studio talents.

Cover art by Jenna Peters-Golden...[ continued ] Hot Tears- Change of Heart

Store-wide cassette sale! The debut full-length from Oakland hypnotic dream punks, Silver Shadows. Post-punk rhythmic sensibilities and enveloping harmonies mix with otherworldly shoegaze-esque ambience to create an album too perfect to be ignored.

Listen on Bandcamp.

The long-awaited debut from Olympia supergroup Guidon Bear. Songwriter Mary Water (Little Red Car Wreck) combines with drummer/multi-instrumentalist Pat Maley (Lois, Courtney Love) and synth-player E. Michael Bradley (Parent Band)—all veterans of the '90s Olympia music scene—to create infectious and subtly complex pop songs about real-life nightmares, boot camps, late bills, and scraping by...[ continued ]

Store-wide cassette sale + last copy! From the brilliant mind of Evan Hashi comes a collection of homemade dub covers of great Olympia bands, past and present. Beat Happening, Kickball, Margy Pepper, Polka Dot Dot Dot, Cool Scool, Kevlar Klein, and LAKE songs are made anew.

Little Angry's Dubs Olympia is Oly-pop like you've never heard it before.

Store-wide cassette sale! Tucker Theodore's debut, To Make the Sun Hurt, established a cultish following for the reclusive Olympia songwriter and soundscape artist. On his latest, 2017's Lady Hope, he takes his sound experiments even further. A psych-folk epic, Lady Hope is a wild hour-long ride through inner darkness and personal mythology.

With appearances from Allen Karpinski (The Six Parts Seven) and Madeline Johnston (Sister Grotto, Midwife)...[ continued ] Tucker Theodore- Skin

Corespondents’ fourth album, Land of the Low People, is an album that exists both as a relic of the past and as a time capsule for the future. It's an album of familiar yet disconcerting melodies that draw inspiration from the Wild West and the Far East in equal measure. It defies genre, place, and time.

It's also the catchiest instrumental album I have ever heard. A perfect soundtrack to any situation or occasion...[ continued ] Corespondents- Face Cancellation

Store-wide cassette sale! The third album from The Washboard Abs finds them reinventing themselves yet again. After the bedroom-folk of Have U Scanned Ur Club Card? and the short, full-band bursts of Recurring Chasms, Lowlight Visions is both a continuation of their pop prowess and a revelation: a fully-realized vision by a band at the height of its powers...[ continued ] The Washboard Abs- Never Finds You

Store-wide cassette sale! Colleen Johnson (of Silver Shadows), Evan Hashi (of Little Angry), and Preston Bryant (of AJJ) combine to make angular post-punk dream-pop ecstasy.

The first printing on clear-shelled cassettes. Released on Antiquated Future Records. Listen on Bandcamp.

"a near-perfect rock record" - Justin Spicer, Tiny Mix Tapes' Cerberus 

"Sporting the usual angularity of post-punk's guitar lineage, they add in various other rhythmic elements until the mix is so wonderfully disparate that influences seem to be thrown out the window and the band appears to be operating on pure inspiration...[ continued ] Flying Circles- Dayglo Queen

Store-wide cassette sale! On their latest EP, Reighnbeau producer Bryce Hample teams up with collaborators Colleen Johnson (Flying Circles, Silver Shadows) and Madeline Johnston (Midwife, Sister Grotto) to create an album that skirts the edges of IDM, dream pop, and electro-folk. Six off-kilter love songs—sparkling pieces of art-pop music for voice, electronics, acoustic guitar, and autoharp...[ continued ]
