From ace percussionist Lisa Schonberg (Secret Drum Band, Kickball, Explode Into Colors) comes UAU: Music for percussion // Soundscapes and Ant Acoustics of the Brazilian Amazon, a song cycle made at "the intersection of art, ecology, entomology, and bioacoustics." It's as cool as it sounds.

Sale! Addicting lo-fi bedroom pop that runs the gamut. Stripped down folk to walls of sound, all offering a different sort of unnameable nostalgia.

Last copy! Cock and Swan's wash of synths and bass heaviness mix with sparse acoustic guitars to create something that is the best of so many genres.

Unrecognize finds them coming out of their lo-fi shell and having beats that blow your mind. Plus hypnotizing story songs and so much more.

This is such a deal, too. Not only do you get one of the best albums of the last few years, but you get it on vinyl and CD (plus two digital download codes!), all for ten bucks...[ continued ] Cock and Swan- One Hundred

Corespondents
Ur $10.00

Seattle’s Corespondents are a whirlwind. Three superb musicians who span the musical map- from western swing to Bollywood steel and a good many things in between. They have a magical quality of appealing to just about everybody without fitting nicely into a style, often being pretty weird, and not having a singer.

This album is the perfect album for a good many situations- dinner parties, acid trips, movie sequences, road trips, and the like...[ continued ] Corespondents- Demon Mustache

Sale! Live garage-rocky pop-punk from Western Massachusetts' Dump Him. 

Released on Olympia's Reflective Tapes. Listen on Bandcamp.
