Arguably one of the most prolific artists in modern indie music, over the past two decades Fred Thomas has fronted a dozen bands, played in dozens of others, headed up a half-dozen record labels, and released an incredible array of albums as a solo artist. His music spans from retro-pop to shoegaze, ambient-drone to bedroom-pop, folk-punk to surf-rock, but most often sits comfortably outside of genre, uniquely his own. 

Another Song About Riding the Bus (Selected Songs 2002-2020) collects 20 less-heard tracks from Thomas’ massive discography. Assembled from limited-edition releases and radio sessions, it features material highlighting Fred's voice, culled from solo work as well as the output of Saturday Looks Good to Me, City Center, Failed Flowers, and Idle Ray. The album is a B-sides & rarities compilation that can also serve as a welcoming introduction to this endlessly versatile artist.

Released on Antiquated Future Records. Dubbed on metallic gold-foil cassettes, packaged in letterpress and offset-print boxes by Stumptown Printers Worker Cooperative, accompanied by Whatnow Press risograph-printed booklet with a personal essay by co-curator and designer Andrew Barton of Two Plum Press. 

The first release from our Selected Songs series, that seeks to shine a light on under-appreciated and overlooked artists from the present and past. Each volume serves as a curated primer to an artist’s catalog, or a hand-picked selection of an artist’s lost or forgotten songs.

A little logbook zine meant to be used as a "radio diary." Meant to keep a record of radio stations (be they shortwave, AM, FM, or online), so that you can remember to follow-up with each. It also leaves a space, and gives a little primer, to QSL cards and offers a chance to start collecting.
