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.

Pre-order the 7" lathe cut now!

Drowse Premiere "Memory" At Tiny Mixtapes

Posted on July 13th, 2016

Listen to Drowse's new single "Memory" streaming now at Tiny Mixtapes!

"With subtly dark over-tones, that are equally light in composure and composition, Drowse’s newest offering to listeners is simply: “Memory.” Like a recollection chamber in an acoustic guitar, thundering, distant knocking rhythms a beat throughout the harmonized and layered vocals explaining the destiny of “Memory.” Backed by both aggressive and serene string-plucking, an echoing signal calls between the body and speaker, haloing a mirage before listeners of something feint in thought, but powerful in emotion."
