Released on Whited Sepulchre Records. Listen to Sabriel Orb's side here and John Atkinson's side[ continued ]

Pure pop brilliance from the one-and-only Richard Album. Bedroom electro-pop of the highest order. Nine originals and the best Luther Vandross cover ever.

Listen on Bandcamp. (And if you have any hesitations, watch this should-be-viral music video)

Richard Album- Crawling Back

As Long Gone, members of hardcore punk bands like Curmudgeon, Pandemix, and Discipline play country-tinged indie rock. Like early Dinosaur Jr fronted by Richard Buckner, perhaps. There's even a surprising alt-country Prince cover at the end.

Released on Reflective Tapes. Listen on Bandcamp.

Cave Babies- Stuff (Xanadu Song)

Ant'lrd's Sleep Drive is a dreamy joyride of overblown organs and skewed beats. Long-form pieces that mix ambient-drone aesthetics with a loop-based instrumental electronic shimmer.

Released on Whited Sepulchre Records. On clear vinyl. Mixed and mastered by Odd Nosdam.

Listen on Bandcamp.

On their latest EP, Reighnbeau producer Bryce Hample teams up with collaborators Colleen Johnson (Flying Circles, Silver Shadows) and Madeline Johnston (Midwife, Sister Grotto) to create an album that skirts the edges of IDM, dream pop, and electro-folk. Six off-kilter love songs—sparkling pieces of art-pop music for voice, electronics, acoustic guitar, and autoharp.

Released on Antiquated Future Records...[ continued ]

Adam Lipman's The Slouch is an absolute gem of low-key indie rock. A casual croon over warm tones, a rhythm section moseying sweetly along, feeling good. Musical contributions from David-Ivar Herman Düne and Franklin Bruno (Nothing Painted Blue, The Extra Lens). For fans of Jason Molina, Kath Bloom, Spenking, Thanksgiving.

Cassette Store Day limited edition of 150. Released on the great Shrimper Records...[ continued ]

Slow Growth is the latest from Badlands, the musical project of multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Adrian Chi Tenney. Her best yet, Slow Growth is a style-hopping album of assured personal pop songs, political anthems, and a Donna Summer self-love mantra cover.

RIYL: Margy Pepper's Golden Webs and Julie Doiron's I Can Wonder What You Did With Your Day...[ continued ]

Temporary sale! Awesomely heavy punk, in a very Northwest way. It reminds me a lot of the pre-grunge late '80s/early '90s Seattle scene, where a ton of different influences were put into one to create something great and not easy to put in a box.

Hand-screened covers. (Plus you get a drawing of the band riding a musk ox on the flipside of the lyric sheet.)
