Private Press 007: Dear Tracks – Aligning With The Sun; Streaming at Clash

Posted on August 22nd, 2016

Meet Dear Tracks – they're an incredible dream pop band out of Grand Rapids, Michigan! Clash premiered their new single "Aligning With The Sun" today and call it "a crisp, hook-heavy starting point for those seeking something heavenly, transluscent, and a little refreshing." They also liken the band to Wild Nothing and Real Estate.

Pressed on made-to-order hand-numbered square 7” lathes, “Aligning With The Sun” will be on sale for a one week period. At the end of that week we will press the exact amount ordered, and that’s it. No repressing ever. This is your only chance to ever own this 7”, so if you want it, order by August 28th. All orders should ship about three weeks later.

O.C.D. Premiere "Best Friend" Music Video at Impose

Posted on August 10th, 2016

Watch the music video for O.C.D.'s "Best Friend" at Impose.

Impose says "they blend aspects of latin jazz with indie rock and punk, creating a sound like no other. The video is a combination between the band jamming out and them just having fun and up to random shenanigans. The track is fast paced and the video looks like a lot of fun. The vocals nest comfortably within the instrumentals, and the guitar is super catchy."

A big thank you goes out to Jon Delouz who filmed the video over a weekend with the band!

"Best Friend" comes off the new 'Growth' EP, out now!

Out Now: Drowse – Memory Bed EP; Streaming in Full At Noisey

Posted on August 5th, 2016

Drowse's new EP Memory Bed is out now! It's an absolutely incredible record that as Noisey says "marks a strong departure from his previous reverb-soaked work in favor of a single microphone, laptop, and acoustic guitar." They also call it a "a heartbreaking study of detachment and intimacy imbued with all of the wonder, pain, and uncertainty of returning from an emotional hiatus, like the aural equivalent of blood rushing back to a sleeping limb."

Private Press 006: Sheer – Room; Streaming At The Le Sigh

Posted on July 29th, 2016

Our new friends at The Le Sigh just premiered Sheer's new single, "Room", and the latest entry in our Private Press series. According to The Le Sigh, Room is "a reverb-drenched track that sounds straight out of the late eighties and early nineties peak of shoegaze. While the song draws influence from its hazy predecessors, Sheer infuses the song with heavy breakdowns while casting wide soundscapes.". It's been a while since we were first introduced to Sheer with their debut album, and "Room" continues right where Uneasy left off.

Pressed on made-to-order hand-numbered square 7” lathes, “Room” will be on sale for a one week period. At the end of that week we will press the exact amount ordered, and that’s it. No repressing ever. This is your only chance to ever own this 7”, so if you want it, order by August 4th. All orders should ship about three weeks later.
