Appalachian Yard Art- Hekatonkheires

The full-length debut from Oakland duo, Upside Drown. Taking retro pop and bringing it into the metaphysical—imagery of magic and nature disguised as catchy love songs, fairytales and mythology as piano ballads. Nine songs too good to easily fit in your hands (bigger than that).

Featuring members of Flying Circles, Silver Shadows, Polka Dot Dot Dot, Twig Palace, The Mumlers, La Dee Da, and Tall Grass.

The CD comes with a gorgeous lyric booklet/mini-zine in a digipack fold-out case.

Released on Antiquated Future Records. Listen on Bandcamp.

"Capturing the hearts of all those who listen, it is no question that these two ladies have created a spell that truly works...Upside Drown takes you to a land of no rules and no judgement, where you have the freedom to play as you please." - Indie Shuffle 

Upside Drown- Go

Colleen Johnson (of Silver Shadows), Evan Hashi (of Little Angry), and Preston Bryant (of AJJ) combine to make angular post-punk synthy dream-pop ecstasy.

The first printing on clear-shelled cassettes. Released on Antiquated Future Records. Listen on Bandcamp.

"a near-perfect rock record" - Justin Spicer, Tiny Mix Tapes' Cerberus 

"Sporting the usual angularity of post-punk's guitar lineage, they add in various other rhythmic elements until the mix is so wonderfully disparate that influences seem to be thrown out the window and the band appears to be operating on pure inspiration." - Joshua Pickard, The Tape Deck

The long-awaited LP version of Flying Circles' flawless debut album! Colleen Johnson (of Silver Shadows), Evan Hashi (of Little Angry), and Preston Bryant (of AJJ) combine to make angular post-punk synthy dream-pop ecstasy. The most critically-adored Antiquated Future Records release.
