Happy New Year everyone! Here’s to a great 2014…I know we only put out one album last year – something we hope to at least DOUBLE this year!
While I don’t have any immediate release news to share, I can say I have heard some of the new White Cascade recordings and can honestly say it’s my favorite stuff they’ve done. They’re still in the final mixing stages, but I hope to have at least a new track up soon for everyone to zone out to.
SULK wrapped up an amazing tour with the Happy Mondays and went straight to work on their new album. Word is you may never hear the songs on “Graceless” performed live again. That would be a real shame, but at least you can own them on a nice, shiny, blue (or black) slab ‘o vinyl. It popped up on quite a few “Best Of” lists, so check it out if you haven’t yet – I guarantee a good time!
The Fauns new album “Lights” is now available from Invada – unfortunately I wasn’t able to get any for the distro, but I would highly recommend checking it out, as it is FANTASTIC. You can stream the full thing on Invada’s Bandcamp site now.
They’re also about to head out on the road across Europe with Alcest! Tour dates, starting on 1/17/2014, can be found on their Facebook page.
Word from the Tears Run Rings camp is that work has officially started on their new album! I heard a rough cut or two while I was in Portland in the fall, and really loved what I heard. I can’t wait to hear everything properly mixed. More details to come on this.
Moonbell have announced that their debut full-length “Afterlives” is coming out sometime early this year (I’ll post more info when I get it). They’ve been playing some shows out around San Francisco, so go see ’em!
That brings us to the one many of you have been asking about – the debut LSD and the Search for God album…well, I know it’s done and in the process of getting mastered. Seriously folks, I want to hear this thing as much as everyone else! Expect some news really soon – don’t know if we’ll be part of it, but rest assured that Randall and the Mind Expansion crew will do it right.
Other than that, I hope to have the distro restocked with some great new tunes…and I hope to give this site a makeover at some point, too.
Anyway, thanks for the support, and stay tuned!
