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).

Released on Antiquated Future Records...[ continued ] Sara Renberg- Assimilation Blues

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 ]

A tribute album to lo-fi bedroom folk pioneer Linda Smith. A much-deserved 19-track compilation with covers and interpretations from Rose Melberg, Christina Scheneider, Silly Pillows, Keel Her, and many more.

Released on Lost Sound Tapes. Listen on Bandcamp.

The 12 songs on Through Tough Thoughts serve as postcards from the road. Tales of leaving and returning. Small epics about failure and hope-in-the-face-of-adversity. 

Jordan O'Jordan's songwriting has never been more intricate or wise. Lyrical complexity that echoes albums like Joanna Newsom's Have One on Me, Songs: Ohia's The Magnolia Electric Co., and Mirah's Changing Light...[ continued ] Jordan O'Jordan- A Lonely Road

Last two copies! Seattle’s own Shenandoah Davis works her magic on a Paleo song and a Shelby Sifers song. Nothing could be wrong with this. Hand numbered and complete with digital download card.

Listen on Bandcamp.

Addicting lo-fi bedroom pop that runs the gamut. Stripped down folk to walls of sound, all offering a different sort of unnameable nostalgia.

Last copy! Cock and Swan's wash of synths and bass heaviness mix with sparse acoustic guitars to create something that is the best of so many genres.

Unrecognize finds them coming out of their lo-fi shell and having beats that blow your mind. Plus hypnotizing story songs and so much more.

This is such a deal, too. Not only do you get one of the best albums of the last few years, but you get it on vinyl and CD (plus two digital download codes!), all for ten bucks...[ continued ] Cock and Swan- One Hundred

Beautiful beach party melancholy from Will Sprott of The Mumlers. Backed by Colleen Johnson (Silver Shadows, Upside Drown), Rosie Steffy (Upside Drown, Ladeeda), Evan Hashi (Little Angry, Shaggy Sample), and many more all-stars. Highly recommended!

Available on limited edition yellow cassettes or on CD in blue slipcase. Put out by Hairdo Records.

Cover art by Shana Cleveland. Listen on[ continued ] Will Sprott- Psychic Lady
