Music

The Blue Sky is Always Blue is made up of 15 transcendent pop songs for a super fun, post-apocalyptic dance party. Synth-driven pop with complex vocal layers, heavy bass lines, and plenty of hand-claps. Unlike anything else, but a good fit for fans of Kate Bush, CocoRosie, Bjork, and Laurie Anderson.

Comes with a full color poster showing images of handmade embroideries for each song. Letter-pressed covers and the coolest-looking CD face you've ever seen. Also available: a postcard set depicting each song on the album!

Poppet- The Crustacean

Kimya Dawson, Jeffrey Lewis, Jack Lewis, Anders Griffen, and Karl Blau combine to make sweet tragi-comic folk-pop. A hidden jewel of a supergroup.

The Bundles- Pirates Declare War

Last copy + sale due to minor shelfwear! Former Infernal Noise Brigade & ¡Tchkung! percussionist, Filastine makes incredible, genre-defying music. Burn It brings rhythmic layers, recontextualized instruments, etheric vocalists, street sounds, bullhorns, guest appearances by hip hop MC’s from Spain to Seattle and makes something you’ve never heard before, but want to hear again and again.

This is a small-run Crimethinc release and 100% of the profits go directly to the legal defense fund of people affected by the Green Scare.

Listen on Bandcamp.

Filastine- Autology (ft. Jessika Skeletalia Kenny)

A classic of the Jordan O'Jordan catalog. Molecular love songs. Banjo ballads. Group sing-alongs. Pure genius.

Available on LP and CD.

LP on blue vinyl. Comes with lyric sheet.

Jordan O'Jordan- Little Finger

Before Rebecca Pearcy had an empire of handmade awesomeness (better known as Queen Bee Creations), she made indie folk pop gems out of Olympia, Wa. These 11 songs feature an all-star cast of musicians (including Nate Ashley and Nora Danielson) and has brilliant cover photography and set design by Tae Won Yu.

Rebecca Pearcy- Natural Disaster

Christina Antipa never fails to make music that is absolutely stunning. Her songs have a stop-you-in-your-tracks kind of weight that doesn’t come along very often and it makes you wonder why she is not a household name. This album is comprised of 10 songs that never made it onto any of her albums; compilation tracks, beautifully fragile home 4-track recordings, even a surprising cover song.

This edition is limited to 50 copies, hand assembled into little white envelopes, with a vellum insert, and hand-stamped discs. A must for fans and those who like to have something special and limited.

Christina Antipa- Thunderstruck

Sale! Olympia songwriter Joe Capoccia leads The Pine Hearts, a tight folk/bluegrass band that wears its punk roots on its sleeve. New old time music for guitar, banjo, and mandolin.

Listen on Bandcamp.

The long-awaited debut from Olympia supergroup Guidon Bear. Songwriter Mary Water (Little Red Car Wreck) combines with drummer/multi-instrumentalist Pat Maley (Lois, Courtney Love) and synth-player E. Michael Bradley (Parent Band)—all veterans of the '90s Olympia music scene—to create infectious and subtly complex pop songs about real-life nightmares, boot camps, late bills, and scraping by.

It's an album about being an anti-imperialist in the National Guard, economic fragility, and parenting paycheck to paycheck. An instant classic.

Available on cassette and CD, both come with digital download codes. Released on Antiquated Future Records, in collaboration with Yoyo Recordings. Listen on Bandcamp.

Last one + Sale! Joe Capoccia, who’s played in so many great Olympia bands (The Pasties, The Blackberry Bushes, Southern Skies, Oly Mountain Boys, The Pine Hearts, Kite, etc), finally brings us a full length solo effort and it is beyond our wildest expectations. Not the punk or alt-country you might expect, but a nice in between, smart catchy songs that are ready to be played on repeat.

Joe Capoccia- The Beach At Night

A massive double disc compilation from the first five years of Fukdup Records—Portland's own purveyor of breakcore and electronic silliness. Thirty-seven artists within, including: Eight Frozen Modules, Foxdye, Rokhausen, Heartworm, Hitori Tori, DJ Detweiler, and many many more.

Liner notes fold-out into a mini poster of the cover art. Hand-numbered edition of 315. Listen on Bandcamp.
