Chris Weisman “Maya Properties (Vol. 1)” LP + 7″ Edition of 220 LP+7″ Printed Art by Ruth Garbus Hand Painted by Ted Lee Each Volume will be hand painted by a different artist. Vinylization of the digital release by OSR Tapes Available on YOUTUBE! First vinyl volume (of five) documenting Chris Weisman’s amazing 88 song download session of 2012. The 22 songs here are classic ’60s-ist studio pop. Closest thing this particular sub-set of tunes resembles is a batch of early Nilsson demos or something. Songs he would’ve been trying to get the Monkees to cover on their TV show. The lyrics are not quite as arch as Harry’s were in those days, nor are there any novelty numbers here… Read more »
Edition of 100 Grab your tissues this one sided gem is gusher’s delight.
Great Valley / Happy Jawbone Family Band “Permanent Christmas” 7″ Edition of 150 Co-Released with Spooky Town Tapes OUT OF PRINT!
45pm Single in an Edition of 500 TALK OUT LOUD We are beyond excited to finally have the first release by Blanche Blanche Blanche in our grubby little mitts, and you will be too! Two warped pop hits by the loviest folks in Brattleboro VT: Sarah Smith and Zach Phillips. This single will warrant repeated back-to-back flipping on your turntable. As a keyboard and vocal duo they create a complete sound-picture, but they’ve also got a great live band called Easy Street. Hey, their heads fly around and stuff too!!!! This heavily blogged-about duo has a tape and an LP coming out on Night People for late 2011 and their video for this single was featured on Pitchfork. Plus they… Read more »
SAM GAS CAN / JUSTIN RHODY “Born Punk/No Probably Not” 7″ Edition of 300 OUT OF PRINT! Co-release with Breaking World Records, DIY Bandits, Faux Pas Industries, Friends and Relatives Records and Lost Sound, six labels in all. A charming mix of twee instrumental punk, weird spoken word and lo-fi acoustic ditties.
Here is what Spencer Grady had to say in Record Collector magazine. We are still trying to figure out what he meant…”Wow, full on mento decapitation funneled into a hypnagogic stadium epic courtesy of David Crosby. Meanwhile, broken by a nasty bout of Antillies fever, Columbus’ crew get homesick and drop some Royal Trux into the sun-soaked frazzle, as Feeding Tube’s Ted Lee and associates introduce Sun Araw to Arawakan. Think Bryan Brown in Bermudas drunkenly mixing metaphors on the beach as the eternal slackness gently cradels the crux of the Carribbean”.
Dashpi “Don’t Give Up The Ship” 7″ / Fold Out Poster Edition of 500 “Yah, yah, yah, yah. Don’t give up the ship”. These are some seriously weird bedroom reggae jams, made on a dare nearly a decade ago. Pitch-shifted vocals, primitive music and surreal lyrics regarding “the aqua hole” and “the flaming room”. The artist, who prefers to remain anonymous, has made a number of amazing archival recordings since this one was laid to tape in the early part of the century, but none of them are as focused as this one here. Beautiful silk screened art on thick paper, folded in four, full color labels and one of the thickest 7″s you’ve ever held await you.
From the eclectic slop-rock gurus ZEBU! comes the new pop sensation Bloody Lips 7″. Vinyl, 45′ speed high quality recorded on 2″ tape. These four rock songs bring the delight of Steve D’Agostino and Ted Lee to the feeding tube stage once again. No filler, No Nonsense, No Digitizing, All Analog Live Mastery. This album is an perfect example of why ZEBU!, eight years in, has really only just begun their mission to craft records that capture what rock and roll truly should be.
