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 ]

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 ]
