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?

The latest project of Madeline Johnston of Sister Grotto. Together with collaborator Tucker Theodore, Midwife creates dreamy songs that confront raw emotions, haunted soundscapes that get stuck in your head. Following their acclaimed 2017 debut Like Author, Like Daughter, their new Prayer Hands EP delves further, bringing more reverb-drenched anthems of loss.

Released on Antiquated Future Records...[ continued ]

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.

Listen on Bandcamp.

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.

On their latest EP, Reighnbeau producer Bryce Hample teams up with collaborators Colleen Johnson (Flying Circles, Silver Shadows) and Madeline Johnston (Midwife, Sister Grotto) to create an album that skirts the edges of IDM, dream pop, and electro-folk. Six off-kilter love songs—sparkling pieces of art-pop music for voice, electronics, acoustic guitar, and autoharp.

Released on Antiquated Future Records...[ continued ]
