Music

Last one + Sale! Joe Capoccia, who’s played in so many great Olympia bands (The Pasties, The Blackberry Bushes, Southern Skies, Oly Mountain Boys, The Pine Hearts, Kite, etc), finally brings us a full length solo effort and it is beyond our wildest expectations. Not the punk or alt-country you might expect, but a nice in between, smart catchy songs that are ready to be played on repeat.

Joe Capoccia- The Beach At Night

Led by Anna Burch and Fred Thomas (Saturday Looks Good to Me, City Center), Failed Flowers is an overlooked supergroup of power-pop perfection. This seven-inch is their first release in years, and it's an absolute joy. 

For those that like the early Flying Nun catalog, Sarah Records, Black Tambourine, La Luz.

Released on Slumberland, as part of their 30th anniversary seven-inch series. Comes with digital download code. Distributed by Life Like Tapes. Listen on Bandcamp.

A wild new album from long-running West Coast electronic artist Whatever Your Heart Desires (AKA: Th' Mole). Featuring guest vocals from Kool Keith and Myka 9 (Freestyle Fellowship)!?! Experimental juke hip-hop? 

Released on Portland's own Fukdup Records. Listen on Bandcamp.

A massive double disc compilation from the first five years of Fukdup Records—Portland's own purveyor of breakcore and electronic silliness. Thirty-seven artists within, including: Eight Frozen Modules, Foxdye, Rokhausen, Heartworm, Hitori Tori, DJ Detweiler, and many many more.

Liner notes fold-out into a mini poster of the cover art. Hand-numbered edition of 315. Listen on Bandcamp.

Braeyden Jae's Fog Mirror builds layers of warm, crackling static into a complex emotional arc. It's a diary of a journey. Drone music that tells a story.

Released on Whited Sepulchre Records. Listen on Bandcamp.

Last copy! The first album from Eleanor Murray. Undeniably powerful folk music without boundaries. With music contributions from Olympia all-stars like Pamela Margon (Tattered Dress) and Austin Cooper (Kendl Winter & The Summer Gold). Produced by Ben Kamen and released on Anonymous Monk Records.

Eleanor Murray- Today
Foxdye Foxdye $13.00

Staying true to Deathsucker Record’s slogan of “redefining breakcore,” the English label releases a stunning 12” from our very own Foxdye! Four songs from (the CD-only) Monsters of Meme release are pressed and ready for excessive spinning.

Cover art by Kinoko (Zine City Comix), on glorious orange vinyl. Listen on Bandcamp.

Sale + last copy! This album has such amazing energy. Like a way weirder version of Good Luck's Into Lake Griffy. Tight, technical, catchy. Hand silk-screened covers.

Chin Up, Meriwether!- Howling Underwater

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.

"Their fractured folk rhythms are laced with a spacey rock minimalism that underscores the band’s ability to take even the most disparate of sounds and merge them into a cohesive and fascinating string of chords and tones...Fussy presents Appalachian Yard Art as a band of uncommon resourcefulness and endless imagination." - The Tape Deck

Appalachian Yard Art- Dogwhistle

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

Listen on Bandcamp.
