The reissue of Big Butter's 1989 weirdo classic, Brainsled. Mixing elements of drone, psych, free jazz, early synth music, sound collage, Minutemen-esque punk, and odd pop.

This limited-edition, self-released double LP is decked out...[ continued ]

The unstoppable forces of Lisa Schonberg (Kickball, Explode Into Colors), Allan Wilson (!!! chk chk chk), and Heather Treadway (Explode Into Colors) combine composing talents to create Secret Drum Band's first full length record, Dynamics, an epic of percussion-driven avant-garde. Forward-thinking instrumental music for any occasion.

Players include: Sara Lund (Unwound), Sam Humans, Alison Clarys, and Anthony Brisson...[ continued ]

Fingertips is an underwater affair—futuristic nostalgia, cheap earplugs at the rave, worn-out cassettes playing recordings of church organs over a pulsing kick drum. As reminiscent of sound collage as pop music.

Braeyden Jae's Fog Mirror builds layers of warm, crackling static into a complex emotional arc. It's a diary of a journey. Drone music that tells a story.
