Sufferer

Devon Williams

Jangly power-pop that connects the dots between Buddy Holly, the Brill Building and the punk-informed pop classicism of songwriters like Chris Stamey and Paul Westerberg. Top drawer tunes and smart arrangements make this one a double a-side winner.

Their first new songs since the brilliant Alight of Night, and what a corker it is. An upbeat summer stomper that brings to mind such classics as "Tally Ho" and "Don't Slip Up." Limited edition white vinyl.

I Lie Awake

Cause Co-Motion!

Brilliant crash-pop from one of our absolute favorite bands. Three songs bursting with spring reverb, energy, busted strings, rattle, boom and clatter. Fans of early 14 Iced Bears, TVPs and the poppier side of first-wave post-punk take note.

Industrial Strength

Phil Wilson

June Brides leader Phil Wilson returns after a twenty year hiatus with the smashing four song EP comprising of covers of some of Phil's earliest experimental music influences: Kraftwerk, Faust, Throbbing Gristle and S/T. Working in a mesmerizing acoustic/folk mode, Phil digs down to the surprisingly melodic tune at the core of each of these songs, and re-imagines them in a totally unique way.
