Store-wide cassette sale! 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...[ continued ]

Temporary sale! 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...[ continued ]

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

French Quarter- Checks & Balances

Christina Antipa never fails to make music that is absolutely stunning. Her songs have a stop-you-in-your-tracks kind of weight that doesn’t come along very often and it makes you wonder why she is not a household name. This album is comprised of 10 songs that never made it onto any of her albums; compilation tracks, beautifully fragile home 4-track recordings, even a surprising cover song.

This edition is limited to 50 copies, hand assembled into little white envelopes, with a vellum insert, and hand-stamped discs...[ continued ] Christina Antipa- Thunderstruck

Sharkpact- Ocean

The long-awaited debut from Olympia supergroup Guidon Bear. Songwriter Mary Water (Little Red Car Wreck) combines with drummer/multi-instrumentalist Pat Maley (Lois, Courtney Love) and synth-player E. Michael Bradley (Parent Band)—all veterans of the '90s Olympia music scene—to create infectious and subtly complex pop songs about real-life nightmares, boot camps, late bills, and scraping by...[ continued ]

Put simply: This is the Jordan O’Jordan masterpiece we have all been waiting for. His remarkable power of appealing to most everybody is at it’s full glory here--big layers of vocal harmonies mix with stripped down banjo songs, reinterpretations of Appalachian folk tales, snaps, foot stomps, drum machine barber shop numbers, and even a hazed out shoegaze song in the form of a traditional (?!)...[ continued ] Jordan O' Jordan- Lever, Leave Here

Long one of Portland's best kept secrets, Half Shadow makes dream narratives into softly psychedelic minimalist dark-folk anthems. The long-running project of Jesse Carsten (Aboriginal Flowers, Memory Boys), Dream Weather Its Electric Song is a carefully thought-out work (dare we say masterpiece?) of poetic devotionals to the natural world, the subconscious, other realms.

Available on LP or cassette...[ continued ]
