Of the most hypnotizing order, Portland, Oregon‘s Lynnae Gryffin creates songs that are almost not songs, but instead long walks through woodland folklore. It’s something ancient and indirect. Amazing (and brilliantly odd) ambient guitar work mixes with a voice that is as much wise scholar as it is child-like wonder.Lynnae Gryffin- William Reminder
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.

Last few before it goes out of print! The solo music of Lily from the band Parasol. Combining Mount Eerie-esque drone, the folky dreaminess of early Mazzy Star, and the punk sensibilities of Mecca Normal into one amazing album. Highly recommended.

Christina Antipa never fails to make music that is absolutely stunning. Her songs have a stop-you-in-your-tracks kind of weight that doesn’t come along very often and it makes you wonder why she is not a household name. This album is comprised of 10 songs that never made it onto any of her albums; compilation tracks, beautifully fragile home 4-track recordings, even a surprising cover song.
This edition is limited to 50 copies, hand assembled into little white envelopes, with a vellum insert, and hand-stamped discs...[ continued ]Christina Antipa- Thunderstruck
Sale! Four songs from K Records recording artist, Ruby Fray. Hazy, witchy, hypnotic, amazing. Led by Emily Beanblossom of Christmas and backed by a super group of former Olympia all-stars.
Beautifully silk-screened by Michael Dellinger at Electricity & Lust. Listen on Bandcamp...[ continued ]
The first album from Eleanor Murray. Undeniably powerful folk music without boundaries. With music contributions from Olympia all-stars like Pamela Margon (Tattered Dress) and Austin Cooper (Kendl Winter & The Summer Gold). Produced by Ben Kamen and released on Anonymous Monk Records.Eleanor Murray- Today
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.

An introduction, ten acts, and five intermissions preparing for the possible loss of what we have. Guitar, cello, voices, and a ton of little instruments. Indie-chamber-folk, perhaps. Listen on Bandcamp.
