The sequel to Aj Michel's COVID t-shirt zine project, I've Worn All the Shirts in the DrawerGot a Box Full of T-Shirts is another charming daily project in an effort to stay sane through a global pandemic.

This time Aj digs through the box of shirts that were slated to become a quilt, or be donated, and wore one each to try to understand why these shirts had been relegated to the box to begin with. What emerges is a nice peek into '80s and '90s punk and indie rock, 2000s comic culture, underground movies, and more. 

20 pages, quarter-size.

Lewiston by the Sea is the fifth solo album from cultish noise-folk and post-rock weirdo Tucker Theodore. Originating from skeleton recordings made at the start of the pandemic—holed up in an apartment above a bottle exchange center, with just a cheap synth and a guitar—the album evolved through long-distance collaborations over the past year into a sprawling epic. 

With vocal contributions from Madeline Johnston of Midwife, Colleen Johnson of Flying Circles, and Jeff Shannon of If It Ain't Breakfast Don't Fix It, among others, the album's 14 songs push and pull between narrators and tones, lyric-driven pieces and instrumentals, each song different than the last. Tracked and mixed between long days working his family farm, this is Tucker Theodore's biggest, wildest, and most multi-layered effort yet.

Released on Antiquated Future Records. The first printing on white cassettes, with 5-panel J-Cards designed by photographer Anthony Rigano. Listen on Bandcamp.
