Some New Releases

Man, we've gotten so lazy with this thing. Sorry guys. Here's some albums we've been playin lately:

Buke & Gass: "Riposte" (acoustic math punk duo with homemade instruments and kick drum beats)

sweet live performance

Joan of Arc: "Life Like" (simpler, just drums, guitar, and bass and featuring Victor Villareal on second guitar. A great return to form.)


Bibio: "Mind Bokeh" (Not as good as Ambivalence Avenue, but still has good tracks)

As always, please buy any albums that you enjoy. The music industry is dying, and as members of it, we want to believe that people will still support music they love so that it can be a viable, profitable art form just like architecture or film or photography or whatever.

Thanks, and much love,
Sam and Tyler

Frank Ocean- Nostalgia/Ultra

Genre: R&B, rap, indie

I'm not sure I'm on board with all the Odd Future guys, but I'm lovin Frank Ocean's debut. Just as well produced as anything on the radio, and way more thoughtful. Opening up with a Coldplay cover is a bold move, but it's awesome and works. Not sure I dig the closing MGMT cover as much, but the originals in between rule. Check it out if you want to groove.
