Cereal Milk

Cereal Milk

Flagstaff songwriter Kris Kohl led the band Cereal Milk in the mid-late 2010′s, a highlight among the many greats in Arizona’s perennially bullshit-free rock community. Self-described as “alt-emo”, Kohl’s diaristic and intimate lyrics recall those of Bay Area greats such as Blake Schwarzenbach or Aaron Cometbus, with expansive riffs that could probably trace their roots back to 1980′s Minneapolis. A big-hearted record for all you sentimental rockers out there.

Check out the record on bandcamp (below) or on all those other streaming services!

Friend Of My Youth – Telling

Sharp melodic punk from this bold Corvallis/Santa Barbara 3-piece. Singer/guitarist Indiana Laub is the fierce, beating heart of the amazing Corvallis scene, and a DIY legend in my book. It is an honor to be releasing this kickass cassette in conjunction with Secret Pennies and Salinas Records who are doing the LP. Peep the stream below and pre-order your copy here!

Mars Is Heaven

DAWGS! The most underrated songwriter of his generation, MORGAN HERRELL (of Hard Girls, Pteradon and I Sing The Body Electric!), has released a new album of stellar tunes (pun not intended but appropriate). Morgan’s music turns the mundane into the magical, extracting beauty from the minutiae of common life and singing it sweetly back to us. I sincerely hope you’ll sit down with these tunes and enjoy them as I have.

Cesar Ruiz – For Music Lovers

Coming June 1, 2017 we have For Music Lovers, the new full length from Cesar Ruiz. It’s a pensive, experimental rock & roll record with hints of R&B and 80′s guitar pop, reminiscent of fellow Arizona-bred musicians like iji and Stephen Steinbrink, but uniquely offbeat and exciting. Recorded at The Unknown in Anacortes, WA over the course of three days, For Music Lovers explores themes of spirituality in the mundane, race and class in society, and observation of one’s surroundings. Collaborators on the album include Sean Bonnette (AJJ), Will Murdoch (Mega Bog, iji), Talisha Royer (Electrisad) and a cast of further shredders. The record is available in a special bundle for $10 with a cassette of the whole album, a mini-CD of B-sides, and a zine. MAILORDER HERE!

To celebrate the album’s release Cesar will be performing in his hometown of Phoenix and his current home of Flagstaff:

06/02 Phoenix, AZ @ Trunk Space // Amateur Hour, Doomed to Bloom
06/03 Flagstaff, AZ @ Headspace // Feral Moan, No Big Deal, Austin Jackson

SNOOOOOOOZE

snooze

BAM!!! Pre-orders are up now for the new tape from SNOOZE. These East Bay dudes play crushingly loud power pop, with earworm melodies that stack up against That Dog and Weezer (the blue album stuff, not all that wack newer stuff), plus self-effacing lyrics from singer Sam Kless. Features members of Just Friends and Tadaima, so don’t sleep on this one (see what I did there?). Pre-order at the MAILORDER page and stream below:
