Holy Monitor - Golden Light/Aeolus on Ongakubaka Records!!


Next up on Ongakubaka Records! Hailing from the sun-baked Mediterranean shores of Greece, Holy Monitor seamlessly blends acid-drenched, neo-psychedelia with krautrock to create dreamy, groove-heavy soundscapes. This release brings together the groups two self-released digital EPs for the first time, creating the perfect summer album for turning on, tuning in and dropping out. It's available to stream/download over at our bandcamp page, with cassettes (limited to our usual 100 copies) shipping out July 16th.

Heat Death - 9 Steps to a Happier Life


If there's one band that's managed to perfectly capture the dour bleakness of Midwestern living, it's Milwaukee-based trio Heat Death. 9 Steps to a Happier Life manages to find a noisy, no-wave sweet spot somewhere between the brooding restraint of Detroit's Protomartyr and the smarmy middle-aged punk angst of Pissed Jeans. Stream the album below and make sure you pick up a limited edition cassette from the group's Bandcamp page
