2016 is nearly, thankfully over, but there were some incredible tunes

hello -- like everyone else, we feel that the end of the year is a goood time to look back and see how blessed with good tunes we've been, and for an otherwise immensely shit year, we've been unbelievably lucky to get to work with the people we did this year.

this year gave us everything from SUPERTEEN and Vishnu Basement (the bands who comprised our first two releases ever in way back in 2014!) to the chance to finally work with old friends Quarrels, Off Drugs, and Ideal Husband, to an absolutely jaw dropping group of new friends and unbelievable musicians in Abi Reimold, Rita Fishbone, BIG FRED, darkturn, Fern Mayo, floral print, and (rip) Fake Boyfriend.

you can find all of these albums digitally and physically here:

thank you to everyone who bought a tape, or streamed a song.

see you in 2017!

Fern Mayo EP "Hex Signs" on cassette out now + new video

We're extraordinarily excited to announce that we're issuing Fern Mayo's EP Hex Signs on a physical format for the first time! Hex Signs is a continuation of the incredible debut Katie Capri and Fern Mayo released back in October of 2015, and one of the best records to have been made this year, and the cassette features a new song "SS Ari" exclusive to the physical release. The Hex Signs cassette comes out today, alongside a new video for "New Ketamine" that premiered on The Le Sigh.

"Katie Capri’s songwriting carries the intimacy and openness of an emotionally packed vignette, allowing the listener into the scribbled margins of her diary. . . Capri conjures power within every line she speaks. Her soft chants build into an anthemic roar as she sings, “What would you do different / If you knew you wouldn’t get everything they promised / If you just stay stay still a bit longer.” - Abbie Jones (for The Le Sigh)

The cassette is available at any live shows and here:

Abi Reimold named one of Stereogum's "40 Best New Bands of 2016"

Abi Reimold was named one of Stereogum's "40 Best New Bands of 2016," for her incredible first full length record Wriggling. Gabriella Claymore (of Stereogum) says of Abi:

"The first thing you notice when you listen to Abi Reimold’s debut full-length, Wriggling, is her voice. It starts in lilting falsetto and sinks to a low and grating rasp the moment Reimold’s songs start to sound too pretty. Wriggling is a rock n’ roll tempest, a series of songs about growing up and fucking up and seeking something undefined. It’s a humbly-produced album that proves Reimold has the potential to grow into something much, much bigger."

We agree on every front, and could not be happier to have worked on Wriggling with Abi. You can stream the album on Spotify, Apple Music, Bandcamp, or wherever else music is found.
