A finally crafted thing indeed. A more mature songwriting that I can’t help but liken to Joni Mitchell, in the way the songs have moments of darkness and dischord that resolve so gracefully and how the songs are so catchy but never dumbed down. Some songs lush and bright, some songs rocking and aggressive. An album that is sure to make her fanbase grow across the lands.

Eleanor Murray- Street To Ride

An A-side of in-your-face electro math punk noise and a B-side of oddball avant jazz pop. (A perfect combination.)

In a catalog rich with psych-folk gems, Patina is one of Appalachian Yard Art's best. Strange and playful, the album traverses a broad sonic and emotional range. Highly recommended.

Store-wide cassette sale! The latest dose of avant-pop from Little Angry, the solo project of Evan Hashi (Flying Circles, Shaggy Sample). Place & Care is the work of an ace songwriter and tireless experimenter, traveling from minimalist meditations to bass-heavy krautrock psychedelia with ease.

Temporary Sale! + Last Two Copies! 

Portland, Oregon’s The Ocean Floor always astounds me. Singer Lane Barrington (Hosannas, Machinedrum) has a voice like no other, the jazzy structures are something you don’t hear much in indie folk, and the songs are written more like playful vignettes than any kind of typical verse-chorus-verse or story-song arrangement. 

The album comes on beautiful moldavite-colored vinyl and features gorgeous art from children’s book artist/cartoonist Johanna Wright...[ continued ] The Ocean Floor- Whats On?

The latest project of Madeline Johnston of Sister Grotto. Together with collaborator Tucker Theodore, Midwife creates dreamy songs that confront raw emotions, haunted soundscapes that get stuck in your head. Following their acclaimed 2017 debut Like Author, Like Daughter, their new Prayer Hands EP delves further, bringing more reverb-drenched anthems of loss.

Released on Antiquated Future Records...[ continued ]
