LP Edition of 250. Includes download code. Mastered by Jeremy Pisani. CD Edition of 500. Here is the first physically graspable music available by this mysterious Western Massachusetts duo, whose sound has been called “Synthetic ASMR love balladry,” by more than one canny listener. Asking them to describe themselves, we received this missive: “Plants of the Bible started in a bedroom in Florence with a tape machine and a poem about an unkillable dog android before it quickly spiraled out of control into a real band with a real record. Their first album is a dreamy cast of imagined characters and everyday events built with elaborately layered sounds. Driven by their array of cheap keyboards and a wide range of… Read more »
CD Edition of 300. Too Much Love Mag Chocoli MV Out this spring on the legendary Western Massachusetts label Feeding Tube, ‘Dutch Science’ dwells on such topics as gripping onto your sanity as you enter true independence and early adulthood, and what it means to make the sacrifices in order to become a working artist in today’s world. Jesus Vio is a working artist who immigrated to the United States after spending much of his childhood bouncing around the world from his native Chile to Berlin, Jesus Vio spent his a chunk of his youth being immersed in vastly different environments. Going through various art schools and touring the world with his former band Free Pizza, Jesus comes into his… Read more »
CD Edition of 300. On the morning of January 20th 2019 I was woken up especially early at 8am (that’s early for me anyway) by the sound of freezing rain bouncing off my bedroom window. Rather than trying to go back to sleep I impulsively got up, put on some clothes, brought my two autoharps, a digital recorder, a plastic tote (to protect the recorder from the elements) and an old card table outside, I set the autoharps up on the table so the freezing rain would hit the strings, placed the recorder in the tote next to the autoharps, pressed record, and this is what happened.

Ghettoblaster Video Premiere “Comet” DNA Music Video Little Things Music Video Home Body Bandcamp Audio Femme Vents Magazine Broadway World It takes audacity to start a song with questions as big and unanswerable as “Where did we come from? Who are we really?” But for Western Massachsuetts duo Home Body, those kind of grand cosmic queries are totally natural, fitting snugly into music that digs deep and shoots for the stars. The soaring voice of Haley Morgan and the throbbing, hovering electronics of Eric Hnatow create songs that are always on the rise,… Read more »

LP Edition of 250 Comes with Download Slip. Second Pressing in Splatter Color Vinyl FIRST PRESSING OUT OF PRINT! CD Edition of 300 CASSETTE Edition of 100 Silk Screened Cover by Colleen! Our last Big Blood release was the idiosyncratic Ant Farm (FTR 241), Colleen and Caleb’s collaboration with the late composer Elliott Schwartz, which presented music designed for a museum installation. With Operate Spaceship Earth Properly, Big Blood return to the vast universe of strangeness they explore inside their own skin. Now fully incorporating the vocals and guitar of their daughter Quinnisa (previously a “secret weapon” unveiled mostly at live shows, as the Dictators once did with Handsome Dick Manitoba), Big Blood sound nutsier and wilder than ever. Spaceship… Read more »
CD Edition of 500 LP + CD Edition of 500 Covers Printed by Neil Burke LP Blue Vinyl Edition available at FT Store / WFMU Record Fair THE WIRE Totally great live LP by Gary Wilson (the world’s forgotten boy) with a cover photo makes him look like a dead ringer for the late Mike Kelley, back when Mike was a fake hippie. Anyway, Gary shouldn’t need much of an introduction. If you don’t know him, you might well access one of the many other LPs of his we’ve done. But then again, Another Lonely Night in Brooklyn might be just the place to start your own little wagon rolling down the road of Gary Wilson fandom. The… Read more »
LP – Edition of 450 CD – Edition of 300 – WIRE REVIEW We were first introduced to the music of Gregg Turner when he was with VOM, the explicitly post-musical punk-tongue-monster he inhabited along with Richard Meltzer, Metal Mike Saunders and others. From there, he and Mike formed the Angry Samoans, who spewed an insane blend of garage/bubblepunk/hardcore noise to well-deserved acclaim. But the Samoans began including folk rock moves inside their spectrum with 1986’s Yesterday Started Tomorrow EP, and most of the work Turner’s done since then has contained this element to one degree or another. People who haven’t heard Gregg’s recordings from the post-Samoans era may be surprised by how straightforward and outright charming some of the… Read more »
Home Body “In Real Life” LP Edition of 500 RAM Music Video CD: LP: First LP by superbly talented Northampton MA duo, Haley Morgan and Eric Hnatow, who rewrite the basic DNA of electro-pop for their own nefarious purposes. They are capable of the sweet gesticulation for which the form is noted, and they do this with incredible aplomb. Staying away from the cute-ass rhyming-nada that so many of their peers use as stock-in-trade, when they opt for romantic aktion, they craft tunes that carry the weight of flat-out Buckingham/Knicks updates in terms of sheer perfection — multi-part femme-voiced songs of longing that explode with deep, fully-immersed emotional content, set inside of perfectly balanced guitar/key/percussion explorations. Outside of time or… Read more »
Happy Jawbone Family Band “Okay Midnight, You Win” LP Edition of 1000 Book Of Fire CD: LP: The second LP (fifth album) by this Vermont / Colorado quintet finds them traipsing ever deeper into the kind of mythic American territory we usually associate with bands who view our landscape from far outside it’s windows. Think of Australia’s Triffids or New Zealand’s Renderers and cross their brilliant Southern Hemisphere inventions with truths only wrenchable from the heart of the beast. There’s a genuine ruralist hoot factor here so smooth that it hits like a ton of silk, but there’s enough killbilly undertow to keep everyone standing nervously around that jug of magic moonshine.
