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
Temporary distro-wide LP sale! 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...[ continued ]Hot Tears- Change of Heart
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. Oly pop like you've never heard it before.

Kate Ferencz makes jaw-dropping, bizzare pop that's unlike anything else. Come the end of the year, Dying Alone should be on the top of every best of 2015 list.

On Recurring Chasms, Olympia's The Washboard Abs take their intimate indie-pop to new heights. Incorporating angular rhythms and art rock sensibilities to these perfectly distilled songs, the album is a beautiful and complex journey through personal battles and trauma recovery.
Available on cassette with digital download. Deluxe edition comes with a full-color 12-page art zine of poems and photographs by The Washboard Abs' songwriter Clarke Sondermann...[ continued ]The Washboard Abs- Submission
