ROB CROW RETURNS WITH NEW BAND AND ALBUM
NOVEMBER 18, 2015
After a very public withdrawal from the music industry and all its toxic trappings, Rob Crow has surprised us with a triumphant return! He has formed a new band, Gloomy Place, which features members of another one of Rob's beloved bands, Heavy Vegetable. You're Doomed. Be Nice. is filled with the kind of tangled, melodic prog-pop that Crow is famous for. The songs are brilliant, the performances exceptional, and the production values higher than any solo Crow endeavors before. The colored vinyl is selling alarmingly fast, so grab that if you haven't already. If you miss it, you'll be happy to know that the black vinyl sounds just as good!
EXPLOSIONS IN THE SKY & DAVID WINGO SOUNDTRACK
OCTOBER 14, 2015
Following their inspired collaboration for David Gordon Green's understated motion picture, Prince Avalance, Explosions In The Sky and David Wingo have paired up again for Green's new movie, Manglehorn. The film stars veteran heavyweights Al Pacino and Holly Hunter, and the soundtrack mirrors the hushed, introspective tone of the film. This is a very limited, very special CD and LP release that will not be available in any retail shops in the world. It is a mail order exclusive, so grab it before it's gone!
ELUVIUM UNVEILS MASSIVE NEW VINYL BOX SET
OCTOBER 14, 2015
Many years in the making, and after many months of speculation, we are proud to finally reveal Life Through Bombardment Vol. 2. The second Eluvium vinyl box set that we've released, Vol. 2 quite literally picks up where the original Life Through Bombardment left off, collecting every Eluvium recording released (and some unreleased) since 2009. Similes, Nightmare Ending, Static Nocturne, the remixes, the b-sides...it's all here! Exquisite doesn't adequately describe this one. If you've seen the first Life Through Bombardment, you have an idea of the overwhelmingly beautiful look, feel, and sound of this collection. It's a truly special (truly limited) piece.

MASERATI ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM 'REHUMANIZER'
AUGUST 18, 2015
Maserati are back! And when we say back, we mean wayyy back, circa 1980! Their new album, Rehumanizer, forges Krautrock, classic rock, and vintage synth meditations into one massive, motorik vehicle. They produced and recorded this one entirely in their own studio, and have fully embraced technology as a songwriting tool. It's that signatire marriage of man and machine that Maserati have turned into a unique art. The cover art is also supremely bitchin'. While supplies last we have a super cool red & orange sunburst colored vinyl that fittingly looks like an exploding sun. Buy up or burn out!
