Howdy amigos! I’m super excited to be releasing the upcoming Flexing cassette, Modern Discipline. Flexing is a dark, aggressive, political post-punk band from Corvallis, Oregon. Fans of Fugazi or This Is My Fist will surely dig this record. Check out the bandcamp stream below and pre-order a copy here. This is a split release with the homies at Secret Pennies Records.
Flexing will be touring this summer in support of the tape. Dates below:
Hi friends, I’m excited to share the first of what will hopefully be a series of recorded conversations between all sorts of interesting folks in the PNP phamily and our periphery.
This episode we have Kyle Pellet, an artist & designer from San Jose, CA, and he is joined in conversation by outsider musician Hank Richardson from Portland, OR. The two began collaborating in the early 2010′s and their defiantly grimy & weird aesthetic makes being pretentious fun again. Both are extremely prolific & driven to create, and have eschewed the slick, boring homogenization of post-pinterest & playlist culture.
Richardson makes tough post-punk with his project Speedway, and channels the timeless melancholy of early rock & roll with the latest album under his own name, When Things Happen In Your Life. He also developed & published the RPG Outworlder, inspired by the film, Krull, and released to coincide with the film’s 35th anniversary in 2018.
On top of the artwork for Richardson’s many releases, Pellet’s artwork has graced the covers of Joyce Manor records and the menus of Portland, ME pho restaurant, CO?NG TU?? BO??T. This year he published World’s Edge, a 2019 calendar/print combo, and a book of his art, Wonkyvision, was published by Valley Cruise Press in 2015.
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.
Friends from Northern California, Southern California, Arizona, and Japan come together to rock in honor of our favorite taquero, Rafa’s Tacos. All profits from this project to be donated to the American Diabetes Association. Preview the A-Side tracks in the video above.
Sup foos! I added a few new distro items from Gezan, Speedway, and WAS in to the mailorder section. It’s a pretty strange cross section of styles, but hopefully some of you weirdos will enjoy the music!
