Roommate began as a Kent Lambert solo project in NYC in 2000 and has been an ever-mutating Chicago band since 2004. The band’s 2011 album Guilty Rainbow was praised by Tiny Mixtapes as “one of those rare albums that starts out great and gets better over its 45-minute length.” Roommate’s fourth album Make Like will be released very soon (the records just shipped out).
These Columbus, OH shredders have been happening all your life. The tastiest jams this side of the Mississippi just got spread on wax. Get em’ before they gone. Buy here.
Packing 10 brand new songs into just under 34 minutes, The Ruffian’s Misfortune is the tightest and most focused record of Hubbard’s career — it also happens to be his first record pressed on vinyl in more than 30 years! You can pre-order an autographed copy now!
Philadelphia, PA noise rock powerhouse Fight Amputation have returned with their first new record in three years, entitled Constantly Off. Set for release on June 9th, Constantly Off was recorded in August 2014 at Gradwell House Studios in Haddon Heights, NJ with engineer Steve Poponi (Ladder Devils, Fight Amp). You can pre-order one of three limited variants from Brutal Panda Records now.
Cool It, Sam Cohen’s solo debut, is an extension of the kaleidoscopic terrain evident on previous projects, but where those records rested blissfully in the sonic ether. Available very soon from the Easy Sound Recording Company.
King Dude‘s latest offering is a 7″ recording of two new songs from his forth coming full length album entitled, “Songs of Flesh & Blood – In The Key of Light”.
The title track “Deal With The Devil” tells the tale of man who lost his love and how he must make a pact with the Devil to get her back, ultimately risking his life in the process… The b-side “You Know My Lord” is a spiritual ballad that showcases a whole new side of King Dude’s songwriting.
Seluah embarks on 2015 with its second full-length, “Phase III.” Using longtime collaborator Kevin Ratterman’s new dream studio, the band conjured stark, foreboding imagery on perhaps its most lurid venture yet. As is especially true with “Nanon,” Phase III depicts a darkly hypnotic world you can’t help but feel drawn to visit more than once. Available from Karate Body Records.
J. Allen’s songs are folk songs written inside the whirlwind that is NewYork City… country hymns tuned in to the traffic hum and the subway rumble.
His forthcoming singles, “Bring Her Back Home” and “Fall Out of Love” mark a turn from the atmospheric, indie-folk aesthetic of his previous work to a more traditional American palette, as well as a renewed collaboration with Alan Weatherhead (A Camp, Sparklehorse) as mixer, arranger and multi-instrumentalist. “Bring Her Back Home” is available now as a limited edition 7inch.
The Chloes are an American rock band formed in 2010, started as a jam project between the lead singer and songwriter April Wenzel and bass player Brandie Dawson in Dallas, TX. They started playing live at the local act launch venue, LBG. Popularity for their live show grew and they’ve played to audiences across major clubs in Dallas, Austin, San Antonio, OKC and Tulsa including the Norman Music Festival, SXSW and with touring acts such as BRONCHO, The Screaming Females, Shannon and the Clams, and The Coathangers.
Their latest LP — No Filter — is available now!
