The full-length debut from Pleasure Systems, the solo project of Clarke Sondermann from Olympia indie-pop band The Washboard Abs. Mixing synth pop, indie folk, and ambient textures, Antumbra Pull is an album about love and fear and the intersection between the two.

Limited-edition second printing on clear cassettes with red foil. Released on Antiquated Future Records. Listen on[ continued ] Pleasure Systems- Crumbs

Seattle's Appalachian Yard Art has been building an impressive catalog of lo-fi psych folk oddities over the last few years. Fussy is their most concise and unified effort so far—nine surprising, noisy, and often sublime songs. Minimalist outsider mini-epics.

Released on Antiquated Future Records. Listen on Bandcamp...[ continued ] Appalachian Yard Art- Dogwhistle

The first full-length from The Washboard Abs. Gorgeous, textural bedroom pop from Olympia, Washington. The beginning of something great.

Limited-edition second printing of 100 clear-shelled cassettes. With cardstock covers printed by Eberhardt Press. 

Released on Antiquated Future Records. Listen on Bandcamp...[ continued ] The Washboard Abs- Something New

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

Like Like, by Portland's Advrb, is an album in ten vignettes. Relationships, almost relationships, last frost walks, A.A. Milne recitations. Lyric-driven jangle pop in the lineage of Jonathan Richman, Jason Anderson, and Eleanor Friedberger.

On autumnal goldenrod-colored cassettes, with cool reversible covers.

Released on Antiquated Future Records. Listen on[ continued ] Advrb- Frenzied Spring

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.

A complex indie-pop album, steeped in jazz and art-pop influences, Lowlight Visions confronts the declining health of a partner and the possibility of loss...[ continued ] The Washboard Abs- Never Finds You

The full-length debut from Oakland duo, Upside Drown. Taking retro pop and bringing it into the metaphysical—imagery of magic and nature disguised as catchy love songs, fairytales and mythology as piano ballads. Nine songs too good to easily fit in your hands (bigger than that).

Featuring members of Flying Circles, Silver Shadows, Polka Dot Dot Dot, Twig Palace, The Mumlers, La Dee Da, and Tall Grass...[ continued ] Upside Drown- Go

Deadpan and vulnerable, grounded and surreal, Sara Renberg's indie-pop songs are small worlds that envelop and surprise. Night Sands, her second full-length, is a record about the desire for and fear of intimacy; about being 32, gay, and single. The album's story-songs are funny and sad, grounded and surreal, nodding to artists like the Silver Jews, Liz Phair, Frankie Cosmos, and the Mountain Goats...[ continued ] Sara Renberg- Roger Miller Baby

The latest from Portland's Indira Valey. No Me Tengas Miedo is an EP of textural surprises and casual wizardry. Four soundscape pieces that exist in the realm of artists like Julianna Barwick, Juana Molina, and Grouper.

Released on Antiquated Future Records and Spirit House. Limited edition second printing. Listen on Bandcamp...[ continued ]

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
