Music

The latest from Portland's Yaara Valey (formerly Indira Valey). No Me Tengas Miedo is an EP of textural surprises and casual wizardry. Four soundscape pieces that exist in the realm of artists like Julianna Barwick, Juana Molina, and Grouper.

Released on Antiquated Future Records and Spirit House. Limited edition second printing. Listen on Bandcamp.

"No Me Tengas Miedo feels in many ways like an exercise in surrender. It lulls us into an uncertain serenity, not tranquilized but clear-headed, before pulling us into a strange world with unfamiliar boundaries. It's a transportive work, and one that you'll find calling you back when you least expect it." - Thrdcoast

Last copy! A beautifully packaged, limited edition three-song EP. Stunning, elaborate, pop songs for cello and wurlitzer.

This band is everybody’s favorite…and with good reason. They draw on traditions while also having a lot of fun within those traditions, making some really interesting music without losing their energy. With covers hand silk-screened by the band themselves. Each 7” also comes with their seven song Panic Attack CD inside! What a deal.

Agatha- Undefined

A classic early Foxdye EP. Foxdye makes music that makes you spaz out, laugh, and swoon. Hand silk-screened packages, stenciled CD, and the second issue of the Sugar and Heartstrings (excuse me, Ravestrings) zine inside.

Foxdye- Foxdyechek Collision

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 

Flying Circles- Dayglo Queen

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. 

Black vinyl in black sleeve with silver and white ink. Artwork by Rachel Cleveland and Evan Hashi. Digital download included. Listen on Bandcamp.

Flying Circles- Diamond Eye

Shimmery psych-pop from Philadelphia's Strange Parts. Attia Taylor and Corey Duncan's dueling vocals mesmerize over wild drums, guitars, and synths. A perfectly disorienting pleasure.

Listen on Bandcamp.

A finally crafted thing indeed. A more mature songwriting that I can’t help but liken to Joni Mitchell, in the way the songs have moments of darkness and dischord that resolve so gracefully and how the songs are so catchy but never dumbed down. Some songs lush and bright, some songs rocking and aggressive. An album that is sure to make her fanbase grow across the lands.

Eleanor Murray- Street To Ride

An A-side of in-your-face electro math punk noise and a B-side of oddball avant jazz pop. (A perfect combination.)

Listen on Bandcamp.

A split between long-running lo-fi heavyweight Orange Cake Mix and some of the artists that love him. Seven songs from OCM, fourteen covers from folks like: A Journey Of Giraffes, Hifi Envelope, Capitano Merletti, William Elmore Wiltshire, The Journals Kept, Tremolo Ghosts, Mud Pie Sun, Tapes & Tubes, Nolan Kurtz.

Released on Why the Tapes Play. Limited-edition CD, 20 copies, hand-numbered, comes with liner-note booklet with essays and interviews.
