Rest You Sleeping Giant "Leaving Shore"

Ethan Helfrich (aka Rest You Sleeping Giant) released a new EP this week called “Leaving Shore”. This project was inspired by an island in Japan called Enoshima, and is beautifully minimal. Ethan created the ambient sounds on this EP by utilizing several pedals, a looper, and a guitar.

“Leaving Shore” follows Ethan most recent LP, Celestial Orchestra, which was released back in April.


Devon Church breaks through with debut single "We Are Inextricable"

There’s something so matter-of-the-fact on Devon Church’s “We Are Inextricable”, the first single from his debut album of the same name. It’s a declaration of attachment that seems devoid of poetry at first, but with each imperative cry of “Come on baby” the song pushes deeper into the singer’s complex psyche. Constructed over shifting, ambient grid points reminiscent of Tim Hecker, the production features sprawling synths and gentle guitars before it all fractures in a noisy burst. Church’s foray as a solo artist is breathlessly confident, and you can hear his debut album when it comes out October 26. – Tucker Pennington


Brin “Talea"

Chicago’s Lillerne Tapes released the debut full-length album from Brin, “Talea”, today, Sept. 5th. Brin is the moniker of Colin Blanton (Ant’ltrd) of Baro Records.

This is a collection of masterfully constructed sample-heavy beats and loops. Brin has the ability to balance ambient music with downtempo pop and experimentation with beauty.

Debut Long Hots EP Available for Streaming & Download

Monday Night Raw, the debut EP from Long Hots, organically brews a basement boogie. Infused with a healthy dose fuzz, the songs rhythmically thump and expand, providing a refreshing, reassuring, garage-rock vibe that is both familiar and ferocious. On Friday, September 14, the all-female power trio will be concluding a run of southern tour dates with a performance at Philadelphia Record Exchange, supported by The Writhing Squares. So make sure to grab a sixer & welcome them home!
