Music

A collaboration between poet Annelyse Gelman and sound artist Jason Grier. About Repulsion mixes songs, sampled poems, textural walls, beats, noise, to create this EP of one-of-a-kind soundscapes.

Listen on Soundcloud.

The new LP from Portland duo Lore City. Weighted and ethereal, heavy and light. Reminiscent of classic 4AD artists like Dead Can Dance, Cocteau Twins, and This Mortal Coil. Add in the more psych side of Mazzy Star, and you might have Alchemical Task.

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.

"Each track is pure and sincere and deceptively rich, each created within its own little world, or perhaps conjuring a snapshot of a particular time/place in our own." - Various Small Flames

Pleasure Systems- Crumbs

Two blistering bursts of addicting instrumental brilliance from Seattle's finest.

Recorded live to two inch tape at Dub Narcotic Studio in Olympia. Screen-printed sleeve, coke-bottle clear vinyl. Comes with digital download.

Released on Seattle's Electricity & Lust Records. Listen on Bandcamp.

Chung Antique- Artesian Swell

Sale! Two brand new tracks from Foxdye. The A-side: whispy ambience that rides a perfect line between angelic drone and stuttering tape noise. The B-side: pulsing prettiness over (breakcore-inspired) IDM beats.

Hand spray-painted by the artist herself, comes with a digital download code, bordering on weird cassingle--perfect for the Foxdye collector in us all.

Listen on Bandcamp.

Harmony Holiday's record of poems and sound collage. Adventurous and accessible, twisting cultural images into something surprising, political, socially aware. In conversation with Charles Mingus’ classic 1963 album The Black Saint and the Sinner Lady.

Comes with an insert of Holiday's poem “To the Black Female Children." Listen on Soundcloud.

Iji Bubble $5.00

Last copy! Written from themes explored in a tour dream diary, Iji's Bubble is a journey through digital age neurological rewirings. It's '70s-tinged psych power-pop party music for the future.

Listen on Bandcamp.

Recorded in a renovated church during a windstorm, with members of Mount Eerie serving as her backing band, Bury Me Into the Mtn is an album that stops you in your tracks. From the big backing vocals of the album’s opener to its methodically sparse closing track, she creates a musical narrative that doesn’t release its listener until the whole tale has been told. An album that's completely unique while also being totally accessible.
