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

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.

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

Attention Ursula K. LeGuin fans! A soundtrack to the world of Earthsea, as imagined by Colleen Johnson (Silver Shadows, Upside Drown) and Smoot (Maple Rabbit).

Cover artwork by Mary Evans and screenprinted by Michael Dellinger. Mastered for tape by Evan Hashi. A benefit for the Transgender, Gender Variant & Intersex Justice Project...[ continued ]

Colleen Johnson (of Silver Shadows), Evan Hashi (of Shaggy Sample), and Preston Bryant (of AJJ) combine to make angular post-punk dream-pop ecstasy.

The first printing on clear-shelled cassettes. 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

Pure pop brilliance from the one-and-only Richard Album. Bedroom electro-pop of the highest order. Nine originals and the best Luther Vandross cover ever.

Listen on Bandcamp. (And if you have any hesitations, watch this should-be-viral music video)
