A split between psych-poppers Strange Parts and punky power-pop band Ogikubo Station (Mike Park of Asian Man Records and Maura Weaver of Boys). Solid all the way through. A pure joy of a cassette.

Store-wide cassette sale! The debut full-length from Seattle's Hoop. Caitlin Roberts (Autococoon), Pamela Santiago (Gar Pal), Leena Joshi (Sick Sad World), and Inge Chiles (Ings) combine to make arresting, emotionally complex dream-pop. Guest vocals from Briana Marela and Allyson Foster (Hunger Cloud Darkening) put this album into the territory of instant classic.

Polka Dot Dot Dot's Syzygy is a classic of Northwest folk-pop, which we're overjoyed to be carrying on vinyl for the first time. Harps and hand-claps and harmonies, and the combined songwriting genius of Colleen Johnson (Flying Circles), Jordan O'Jordan, and Onyx of Olympia.

In a gorgeously printed sleeve, with poster and lyric sheet. On turquoise vinyl.

Polka Dot Dot Dot- Nautilus Teef

Store-wide cassette sale! With a charming deadpan, Portland, Oregon artist Sara Renberg tells absurdist story songs. It's smart, understated indie pop with a sense of humor. Recorded by Ephriam Nagler at K Records' Dub Narcotic Studio.

On blue cassettes with hand-typed lables, insert, and digital download code. Cover art by Martha Grover (Somnambulist, One More for the People)...[ continued ] Sara Renberg- Assimilation Blues

Eleanor Murray and Pamela Margon combine to play to make 9 gorgeous songs of old time folk fiddle goodness. Five originals and four traditionals, all recorded by Mr. Pat Maley (Yoyo Records, Yoyo a Gogo). Perfect music for a good many occasions.

Tattered Dress- Green Pea

The latest from Pleasure Systems, the solo electronic project of Clarke from The Washboard Abs. Terraform takes the project into a place that sparkles and pops in digital melancholic bliss. A masterpiece in synth waves, pitch shifts, glitches, and stutters, all covered in pop song dreams.

Store-wide cassette sale! Psych-folk cabaret from the mind of Olympia composer Jeff Shannon. Surprising arrangements and dream-logic lyrics in soundscapes of uncommon textures. Sinisterly absurd. Infectiously unusual.

Hand-stamped covers with a hand-cut stamp by Jillian Chaplain. Tapes are protected with a (removable) bandage. Paper insert with short poetic-prose essay on the There Will Be Casualties concept (emotional bandages, the armor of habitual protection, a mask of disguise or defense)...[ continued ]
