SPC ECO • 6月LP June LP • 2020



The Declining Winter • Occupying The Blanks • 2020



Valium Aggelein • The Black Moon • 2020


A year prior to Duster’s landmark debut album Stratosphere, Clay Parton, Dove Amber, and Jason Albertini quietly issued a prequel LP into the great expanse. An ode to ’70s Kosmische, Hier Kommt Der Schwartze Mond is a skeletal space nap for the prozac generation. Remixed and remastered from the original 16 track analog tapes, the 1998 album has been adjoined by 15 period-appropriate bonus tracks. A fuzzy masterpiece, hidden in plain sight, by the most important slowcore band of all time.

Benjamin Gibbard • Proxima B / Filler • 2020


Benjamin Gibbard debuted live stripped-down acoustic versions of "Proxima B" during the Smithsonian's National Air; Space Museum virtual concert Space Songs: Through the Distance, and during his weekly livestream performances from his home in Seattle. This is the fully fleshed-out studio version of "Proxima B", paired with b-side "Filler," a revelatory piano-vocal cover that brings Gibbard's trademark melancholy to the straight-edge DC hardcore classic by Minor Threat.

Gary Olson • Giovanna Please • 2020


The album's first single "Giovanna Please" sounds like the Norwegian countryside, too, not too far from what Ladybug Transistor is known for, but verdant and very spring-like with those knockout strings. "If you listen you may notice it’s a bit of a Greenwich Village song," says Gary, "which was a playground for me during my high school years.”

On the song Anna Sofia said: “I wrote this song as a note to someone I really care for. They have been struggling with body image issues and have always been very self-conscious.
