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.

MARATHON STATES Pre-Order

Jason Thinh made a small but distinct mark on the Bay Area punk scene in the early 2000′s as the driving force behind the introspective yet vibrant pop-punk band Short Round, and as a member of the socially-conscious ska band The Chinkees. He relocated to Athens, GA searching for a new perspective on life and struggled with issues of identity and separation, losing the impulse for songwriting before eventually embracing it again as a mechanism to make sense of said issues.

Written and recorded over a 4-year period from 2012-2016, Thinh’s first album under the MARATHON STATES moniker is a deeply personal affair, one that confronts questions of change and anxiety, but still occasionally references his favorite comics, television, and music. And while there may be some discrete lyrical shout-outs on I Want A Warning to Thinh’s favorite bands and records, the instrumentation not so discretely takes cues from the big, angular guitars of Sleater Kinney and Bangs, and the heart-on-sleeve desperation of Jawbreaker. Old California friends Max Feshbach and Morgan Herrell (Hard Girls) provide the record’s dynamic rhythm section, with additional contributions from Georgia friends Sam Paulsen (Man or Astroman?, We Versus The Shark) and engineer Joel Hatstat (Bomb The Music Industry, Cinemechanica).

Pre-order a copy of the 8-song debut tape here if you’d like. We’ll ship them out in early September.
