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

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.
