Before Rebecca Pearcy had an empire of handmade awesomeness (better known as Queen Bee Creations), she made indie folk pop gems out of Olympia, Wa. These 11 songs feature an all-star cast of musicians (including Nate Ashley and Nora Danielson) and has brilliant cover photography and set design by Tae Won Yu.

Cynosure- Because of This

Last two copies! Squill is the solo music of Lily Richeson from the band Parasol. Combining Mount Eerie-esque drone, the folky dreaminess of early Mazzy Star, and the punk sensibilities of Mecca Normal into one amazing album. Highly recommended.

First edition of 100 clear green cassette tapes with hand stamped labels and full color artwork. Includes digital download card...[ continued ] Squilll- Scripted Lines

A reissue of this lost, barely-released 1997 album by The High Beams. Daydream is underwater lo-fi dream pop for guitar and drum machine.

Released by Why the Tapes Play.

Dear Crone is the latest from Olympia's Woolen Warrior. With its expansive take on sparse Northwest indie folk (think early Pedro the Lion or Damien Jurado), Dear Crone is an album about cycles, about (according to songwriter Sam Gray), "How they exist within ourselves and how we exist within them. The comfort of their continuance and the awe of their indifference."

Featuring musical contributions from Pamela Margon (Tattered Dress), Andrew Dorsett (Lake), Ariel Page, and Jen Grady (You Are Plural)...[ continued ]

A brilliant album from Olympia cellist Derek M. Johnson. The range between the joyously furious chaos of where it starts and the stop-you-in-your-tracks lush beauty of where it ends is vast, but it works. Along the way there's deep ambience and solo cello, making an album in four distinct parts--one that carries weight and leaves you somewhat stunned.

Comes with a digital download card. Released on Seattle's Aphonia Recordings...[ continued ]

Addicting pop music from the mind of Stephen Steinbrink. Fun and interesting without ever being over the top.

Recorded by the ever-amazing Bob Schwenkler at Olympia’s legendary Dub Narcotic Studios, this album has a wonderfully unique sound. Released on Seattle’s Off Tempo label. Comes with a digital download code.

French Quarter- Checks & Balances

Last one + Sale! Ten inches of truly odd vinyl from long lost Olympia band, Space Ballerinas.
