Excitable, incomparable, art punk meets indie pop. One of my all-time favorite albums.
Recorded by Bob Schwenkler, mastered by Pat Maley. Packaged in a jewel case and released on the legendary Olympia label, Yoyo Recordings. Listen on Bandcamp.[ continued ] Kickball- Party

Produced by Tim Green (Nation of Ulysses, the Fucking Champs). On beautiful rose marble vinyl.[ continued ] Happy Noose- Amagosa
This is the Kickball album that best captures the crazy energy this band has live--the starts and stops, the bursts of anger and intimacy, everyone yelling together at the top of their lungs. It also has the expert production of Bob Schwenkler, making it an experience of complete sensory overload. Cramming this full length onto ten inches of vinyl gives a rawness that is so sweet.
Printed on white vinyl, full color sleeve, and full color insert with lyrics...[ continued ]Kickball- Fight
Long-running Olympia garage-pop band Margy Pepper is a powerhouse. Unstoppable. And Golden Webs is their masterpiece. Songs that are hard-hitting while still being infectiously catchy, inspirational without being soft. And they worked for this album - it's self-released, has hand screen-printed album covers, and comes with a Margy Pepper poster and sticker inside!Margy Pepper- Hi-Skool
Demons being exorcised and caught on tape. Pop melodies covered with layers of grit. Bedroom classic rock, experimental folk, tape machine noise.

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
