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
DAWGS, check out the new tape from COVETOR. These dudes play riff-heavy, psychedelic skate punk, somewhere between The Descendents and The Men. Featuring former members of French Exit and Ghost Limb, Thank You captures four friends making a lot of noise together out in a quiet corner of Joshua Tree. Stream the music below and MAILORDER HERE!
Check out the band’s record release show April 20th, 2017 at The Redwood in Downtown LA with Moxiebeat, Love Moon and Piss Wand.
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:
After hitting it off during a tour together last October, 100% and Joyce Manor decided to record a couple covers of The 6ths (Stephin Merritt’s side project/tribute band of sorts), throw the songs online, and maybe collect some donations for charity. I asked if they’d let me do a small run of 7″s and they said YES, so it’s with immense pleasure that I finally get to share these songs with you today.
For the 7″s we did a short run of lathe-cut records with Precarian Cuts in Tucson, all hand-made in real-time using old school methods and machines. All proceeds from the 7″s and bandcamp sales will be donated to Planned Parenthood, so even if you don’t manage to snag one of the records I hope that you’ll still consider donating. In addition to donating, we’d also like to encourage you to take action in support of women’s rights, reproductive justice, and access to health care by visiting www.resistancemanual.org, a good resource for information on important issues and how to take positive action.
There were only 50 copies of this 7″ made and they’re all SOLD OUT now. Thanks to everyone who purchased it.
Hi friends! Here’s a surprise Shinobu live album for you. It was recorded 2 years ago at KFJC 89.7 on DJ Honey Bear’s show, and we thought you might like to hear it. The album is for sale for $5 on bandcamp and all proceeds from the record will be donated to the National Immigration Law Center. Enjoy!
Hi friends! Check out the debut from TADAIMA, a 3-piece punk band with no bass guitar in the tradition of Track Star.
