Before her Polyvinyl pop gem, Quit The Curse, there was Party: the Beach Boys' Party-inspired solo debut from Anna Burch (Failed Flowers, Frontier Ruckus). 

Released on Life Like.

The latest dose of avant-pop from Little Angry, the solo project of Evan Hashi (Flying Circles, Shaggy Sample). Place & Care is the work of an ace songwriter and tireless experimenter, traveling from minimalist meditations to bass-heavy krautrock psychedelia with ease.

Temporary Sale! + Last Two Copies! 

Portland, Oregon’s The Ocean Floor always astounds me. Singer Lane Barrington (Hosannas, Machinedrum) has a voice like no other, the jazzy structures are something you don’t hear much in indie folk, and the songs are written more like playful vignettes than any kind of typical verse-chorus-verse or story-song arrangement. 

The album comes on beautiful moldavite-colored vinyl and features gorgeous art from children’s book artist/cartoonist Johanna Wright...[ continued ] The Ocean Floor- Whats On?

An Olympia classic. This 1999 Yoyo Recordings studio compilation has 22 songs that give a snapshot of the scene from that era. The Microphones, Mirah, C Average, The Need, IQU, and many more.

The Microphones- Wake Me Up

Temporary sale! Power-pop like you've never heard it before. Cello, wurlitzer electric piano, drums, and lush harmonies combine to make uniquely beautiful and addicting songs.

You Are Plural- Cut Along the Line

On Recurring Chasms, Olympia's The Washboard Abs take their intimate indie-pop to new heights. Incorporating angular rhythms and art-rock sensibilities to these perfectly distilled songs, the album is a beautiful and complex journey through personal battles and trauma recovery.

Released on Antiquated Future Records. Listen on Bandcamp...[ continued ] The Washboard Abs- Submission

Last copy! Richard Album returns with his most elaborate pop album yet. As usual: Pure genius. Heartbreak's never sounded so sweet.

Unbeatable, surfy power-pop, heartbreak gems from Chicago's Richard Album and the Singles. Highly recommended.

Richard Album and the Singles- Quiet

One of the best indie-folk albums of the past decade. From old folk-style ballads to drum-machine cowgirl tales, this album has such good variety, but is completely cohesive. As if Ms. Antipa’s voice and talent wasn’t enough, this album also features guest musicianship by some of our favorites: Olie Eshelman (Corespondents), Shenandoah Davis (Grand Hallway), plus a fabulous duet with Jordan O’Jordan (Polka Dot Dot Dot)...[ continued ] Christina Antipa- Beautiful Place

Adam Lipman's The Slouch is an absolute gem of low-key indie rock. A casual croon over warm tones, a rhythm section moseying sweetly along, feeling good. Musical contributions from David-Ivar Herman Düne and Franklin Bruno (Nothing Painted Blue, The Extra Lens). For fans of Jason Molina, Kath Bloom, Spenking, Thanksgiving.

Cassette Store Day limited edition of 150. Released on the great Shrimper Records...[ continued ]
