perfect slow morning listen…

Daysdeaf - Everybody Fools - 2018



The English-language idiom, 'small world', is used when two people coincidentally share something unexpected; usually when two people know the same person, or meet each other in an unforeseen place. The idea behind Big Small World is to illustrate the surprising mutual connection that stems from the common adversity we face. The album uses themes of mental illness, materialism, love and loss, family and immigration to describe an atmosphere of belonging among us through our shared struggles and difficulties. The world may seem larger when one feels isolated by their problems or situation; they often forget that many people are going through the same thing at the exact same time. Consequently, the album is about personal connection, the bond between us; we seem to be facing our trials and afflictions alone, but we're not - we are linked by shared experience. And, when the stories of our troubles are unexpectedly bridged to one another, the world doesn't seem so big after all..

Earth Dad - Townies - 2018

Getulio Silenzio - Pesadelo - 2018


The new work draws inspiration from several different sources (greek mithology, marvel comics characters and others) and combines the dark and gothic mood of his previous band with ethereal and climatic instrumentation.

Say Sue Me - Where We Were Together - 2018



“… an addictive amalgam of sugary indie pop and gritty surf that showcases a finely-tuned sense of melody and technical skill… Nary a song on Say Sue Me isn’t a total ear worm.” Bandcamp Daily

NXNE Sessions - Rah Rah - "Prairie Girl" - 2014

Tom Rosenthal - Don't Die Curious - 2018


Pole Siblings - Sköljer bort dig EP - 2018



After living apart for nearly 10 years, Johan and Sofia Stolpe came together when both of them found love on the other side of the Baltic Sea and moved to Sweden almost simultaneously. They started a band together as an outlet for processing their mutual history as well as creating a necessary way to stay connected to their homeland. Love came and went, but both of them decided to stay in Sweden and they are now living just a block away from each other in the small town of Falun in the Dalarna region.

thanks for coming - back at it again - 2018



Juliana Hatfield - Pussycat - 2018



“It was a blur. It was cathartic,” says Hatfield. “I almost don’t even understand what happened in there, or how it came together so smoothly, so quickly. I was there, directing it all, managing it, getting it all done, but I was being swept along by some force that was driving me. The songs had a will, they forced themselves on me, or out of me, and I did what they told me to do. Even my hands—it felt like they were not my hands. I played bass differently-- looser, more confident, better.” 

Phalcons - Swim Away - 2018



Phalcons second single, the follow up to the majestic psych folk of 'Idle Ways’, is instantly recognisable Phalcons. The first dreamy reverb drenched chords entice you yet again into their world.  As Ben Ellis, the band's singer and principle songwriter explained, the song came from a dream.

Ongakubaka Records - Psychosphere: Vol. 1 - 2018

Winter - Ethereality - 2018


Hearts Grow Dull - Blush Response - 2018


Blush Response was born out of the conflicting desire to combine catchy pop songs with the ear-splitting sound of speakers tearing themselves apart.

Declan Kennedy - If I Only Had No Heart - 2018


This album is not a self portrait, but rather it is a few bits and pieces of my humanity. It is not an autobiographical documentary, but a scrapbook of polaroids

Marissa Nadler - covers 2 - 2018



Soccer Mommy - Cool - 2018

Anna Burch - With You Every Day - 2018


Growing up in Michigan, Burch’s fixation with music transitioned from a childhood of Disney and Carole King sing-alongs to more typically angsty teenage years spent covering Bright Eyes and Fiona Apple at open mic nights. By 18 she was deep into the lifestyle of the touring musician, juggling all the regular trials and changes of young life while on a schedule that would have her gone for months on end.

Air Waves - Warrior - 2018



Nicole's voice and the layering of pop simplicity, makes this latest release a "go find this record"  moment. 

MIEN - 2018


This may have been a record put together at a distance - yet the chemistry between these four gures is manifest amidst a kaleidoscopic series of atmospheres and excursions whereby the fertile songwriting of the golden age of ‘60s psychedelia is transmitted into a transcendental realm above and beyond the second decade of the 21st century. 

Good Looking Friends - Settle In, Decay - 2018


excellent release… "Cut from their debut LP, Settle In, Decay, this one grabs the innocence of millennial punk ears and doesn’t let go until we’ve all had the proper dose. - All Things Go

Kobi Onyame - Wedadi (A Short Film) - 2018


Govier - Metal Target - 2018



"'Why is it me?' is an interpretation of the song by the same name written by one of my musical heroes, Wholewheat. Other tracks feature various sounds and samples, some of which I recorded myself, some of which I didn't. I figure the threat of lawsuit to be a rational fear so the samples which I didn't myself record will remain a mystery until you do some digging. 

Indira Valey - No Me Tengas Miedo - 2018



"No Me Tengas Miedo feels in many ways like an exercise in surrender. It lulls us into an uncertain serenity, not tranquilized but clear-headed, before pulling us into a strange world with unfamiliar boundaries. It's a transportive work, and one that you'll find calling you back when you least expect it." - Thrdcoast 

"The music seems to absorb into your skin, disregarding physical borders and laying waste to your carefully positioned defenses. These sounds appear larger and larger with each listen, rising in stance and force with each passing moment." - This Analog Life 

"heart-swelling, choral and communal" - The Autumn Roses

Fox Academy - absent - 2018





light is blinding 
i don’t care 
i don’t care 
absent minded 
I’m not there 
i’m not there 
i wore my mask

i play my favorite game 
i put my hands over my face 
forget my name 



sky looks like nascar 
easter pink colors 
racecars 
everything felt so beautiful 
like i was a kid 
i wish 
everything felt like this
