The 12 songs on Through Tough Thoughts serve as postcards from the road. Tales of leaving and returning. Small epics about failure and hope-in-the-face-of-adversity. 

Jordan O'Jordan's songwriting has never been more intricate or wise. Lyrical complexity that echoes albums like Joanna Newsom's Have One on Me, Songs: Ohia's The Magnolia Electric Co., and Mirah's Changing Light...[ continued ] Jordan O'Jordan- A Lonely Road

Out today! Dao Strom’s Traveler’s Ode is an interwoven series of textured, ethereal song-poems. Atmospheric yet weighted, minimalist yet lush, the album combines voice, electronics, piano, guitars, and field recordings from sources such as rivers, sea, jungle, and birds to create a deeply emotive song-cycle that explores themes of displacement, diaspora, and hauntings.

Echoing the work of artists like Tara Jane O'Neil, Grouper, Black Belt Eagle Scout, and Tiny Vipers...[ continued ]

Last two copies! Seattle’s own Shenandoah Davis works her magic on a Paleo song and a Shelby Sifers song. Nothing could be wrong with this. Hand numbered and complete with digital download card.

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

Recorded by Nicholas Wilbur at The Unknown in Anacortes, Washington.
