Deadpan and vulnerable, grounded and surreal, Sara Renberg's indie-pop songs are small worlds that envelop and surprise. Night Sands, her second full-length, is a record about the desire for and fear of intimacy; about being 32, gay, and single. The album's story-songs are funny and sad, grounded and surreal, nodding to artists like the Silver Jews, Liz Phair, Frankie Cosmos, and the Mountain Goats...[ continued ] Sara Renberg- Roger Miller Baby

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.

In a catalog rich with psych-folk gems, Patina is one of Appalachian Yard Art's best. Strange and playful, the album traverses a broad sonic and emotional range. Highly recommended.

Anyone who's followed Antiquated Future knows we love weirdo spoken word music. From Tapestry to Aboriginal Flowers to Hecka Ar, we've carried and released albums that push the bounds of music and poetry since the get-go. That's why we're thrilled to carry the new release from Emily Roll that continues the wild, graphic word-art that she's been until-now making under the name Haunted.

Released on Life Like...[ continued ]

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.
