Now based back in his home city of Seattle, he’s ready to present his most accomplished creations to date with the 'Spring' EP.

Geowulf - Great Big Blue (2018)

Jimmy Moir This is a great indie pop/rock album with a dream pop feel at many times. Very recommended if you like that indie pop style with a hint of dream pop or shoe gaze at times

Lemuria - Recreational Hate (2018)

"Recreational Hate" is, along this avenue, something different. The songs can be traced to a past, present, and future existence of the band, running in every direction, but always coming home to a definitive observational point of reference. "Recreational Hate" is the next book in a fantasy series. It's the surprise 6th act in a never-ending performance. It hints of familiarity in a place where the guidelines have been abandoned, and anything is possible.

Dreamweapon - SOL (2018)

Pom Pom Squad - HATE IT HERE (2017)

"[Hate it Here] is made for peering into darkened summer skies and counting the stars... Pom-Pom Squad shares their whole heart with us and its resounding heartbeat sticks with you long after its conclusion." - The Grey Estates 

Wax Mistress - A Ghost in the Garden (2018)

Summer Salt - One Last Time (2018 single)

Baby girl when was it that you had decided 
You’d call it off and on  
You were just having fun  
With loving one last time 

Anyken - Wherever You Go, I'll Protect You (2018)

I’ve always tried to be someone in my life, someone who's not actually me. I tried to avoid people; I didn’t trust them, all I wanted was to be alone and shut out in my own world. But now I feel that I'm starting to change, and these changes are definitely in a good way.

Songs: Ohia - Travels In Constants (2018)

Sometime in 2001 – sandwiched between the release of Ghost Tropic and its follow-up, the cryptic classic, Didn't It Rain – Songs: Ohia recorded an EP for Temporary Residence's distance-themed subscription series, Travels In Constants. The untitled EP consisted of a single 18-minute song – performed live by Jason Molina in his living room, recorded directly to 4-track cassette as the sounds of a typical Chicago night bled through the air. Built solely from an acoustic guitar and Molina's familiar melancholy croon, it's a hauntingly intimate track. Molina once remarked that it was "probably too out there" for a proper Songs: Ohia album, which is perhaps why is felt right at home in this context. 

dead bedrooms - Bummer (2018)

This album is about feeling like an imposter in an environment that was once so comfortable. It's about becoming reclusive and leaving social events with the feeling that something just doesn't fit, and enjoying being alone with yourself while at the same time longing for companionship.
