Music

The reissue of Big Butter's 1989 weirdo classic, Brainsled. Mixing elements of drone, psych, free jazz, early synth music, sound collage, Minutemen-esque punk, and odd pop.

Running since 1986 and still going today, Big Butter is the project of two brothers. They were once on the roster The Residents' Ralph Records (if that gives you some idea of what you're in for).

This limited-edition, self-released double LP is decked out...[ continued ]

Sale! Four songs from K Records recording artist, Ruby Fray. Hazy, witchy, hypnotic, amazing. Led by Emily Beanblossom of Christmas and backed by a super group of former Olympia all-stars.

Beautifully silk-screened by M. Dellinger at Electricity & Lust.

Long one of Portland's best kept secrets, Half Shadow makes dream narratives into softly psychedelic minimalist dark-folk anthems. The long-running project of Jesse Carsten (Aboriginal Flowers, Memory Boys), Dream Weather Its Electric Song is a carefully thought-out work (dare we say masterpiece?) of poetic devotionals to the natural world, the subconscious, other realms.

Available on LP or cassette...[ continued ]

Sale! On Feel Gud Tunes, Seattle (by way of Athens) duo Appalachian Yard Art throw the folk out of their psych and prove themselves masters of the space jam.

Seattle's Appalachian Yard Art has been building an impressive catalog of lo-fi psych folk oddities over the last few years. Fussy is their most concise and unified effort so far—nine surprising, noisy, and often sublime songs. Minimalist outsider mini-epics.

Released on Antiquated Future Records. Listen on Bandcamp...[ continued ] Appalachian Yard Art- Dogwhistle

Noisy and beautiful psych-folk from Seattle. Gloriously hypnotizing. A masterpiece.

Buffalo Voice- Apple Bed

Tucker Theodore's debut, To Make the Sun Hurt, established a cultish following for the reclusive Olympia songwriter and soundscape artist. On his latest, 2017's Lady Hope, he takes his sound experiments even further. A psych-folk epic, Lady Hope is a wild hour-long ride through inner darkness and personal mythology.

With appearances from Allen Karpinski (The Six Parts Seven) and Madeline Johnston (Sister Grotto, Midwife)...[ continued ] Tucker Theodore- Skin

Sale! Sludgy psych-garage rock meets lo-fi folk aesthetics in an epic four song EP.

Listen on Bandcamp.

Appalachian Yard Art- Hekatonkheires

The latest from Tucker Theodore is an album of ten instrumentals in two movements that pushes his singular psych-folk sound into a near post-rock expansiveness. Like all his records, it's wild and unruly and impossible to put in any box. Brilliant. Transcendent.

Released on Antiquated Future Records. Listen on Bandcamp...[ continued ] Tucker Theodore- Movement 9 (High Descend)
