Thanya Iyer // "Do You Dream? Mixtape" On Cassette

We will be releasing our latest addition from Montreal, Thanya Iyer's, Do You Dream? Mixtape on cassette as well as digital download this Friday! We're so excited to be putting out this refreshing, eclectic sound from some truly brilliant musicians.

"Ever-changing throughout, the new mixtape is a gloriously skewed beast, the tempo and tone leaping between vivid moments of sparkling pop junctures, all simmering vocals and gently lapping instrumentals, and then disappearing in to a void of white-noise and experimentation, before the clouds clear once again, just long enough to feel warmth emanating through." - Gold Flake Paint

This album is a unique reworking and reinterpretation of their previous album, Do You Dream. Check it out by streaming on Gold Flake Paint, along with a more elaborate description of their sound. And of course, don't miss out on grabbing yourself a copy of this rendition of your favorite, most fantastical dream here.

    tricot // T H E + A N D on Vinyl

    Exciting news everyone! We're putting out not one, but TWO tricot releases this year! These albums have never been released in the North America, and we think it's about time you all get your hands on them! We will be releasing both T H E, tricot's first full release, which came out in 2013, as well as A N D, tricot's second release, which came out back in 2015.

    In May of last year, we released with tricot the album 3, which had great reception from you all! If you haven't checked out that album, listen here. tricot has a truly inspirational sound-- a blend of native Japanese vocals, jazzy instrumental breaks, and an overall layer of post-punk sound. If you're a math-rock head, believe us, they've got the whole genre covered.

    We are beyond excited to be able to get these releases in all of your hands. Pre-orders are available now.

    Queen of Jeans // "More to Love" Premiere

    The Philly-based quartet Queen of Jeans has just come out with the first song, "More to Love", from their newest album, Dig Yourself! Back in December, we let slip the news that we would be working with this band on their upcoming album, and here's the track to prove it! Check out the song, along with a little snippet about the band over at The Alternative.

    Queen of Jeans is a band formulated over a multitude of experiences with misogyny in the music industry. From these experiences, the band decided to forge together and make a dynamic that focused on cherishing their musical talents--leading to their forthcoming album. Dig Yourself focuses on a duplicitous meaning-- on one hand, you can really dig yourself. You can be into yourself. You should be into yourself. On the other hand, Dig Yourself focuses on digging inside of yourself, and doing the work to find out more about you. It's self-reflective while self-loving, a combination well settled by their background as a band.

    The album will be coming out March 30th, which you can preorder here. Their record release show will be at Underground Arts in their stomping grounds of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on March 31st, the date after their release.

    If you enjoy the sounds of the likes of Angel Olsen, Mitski, and/or Waxahatchee, if you like people who like to make vegan nachos, if you like the idea of "estrogen on ice", you'll love this song!

    We are so excited to be able to put out this release for this band. We hope you're just as excited too.

    A portion of the proceeds from this forthcoming album's pre-order sales will be divided equally and go directly to The Trevor Project, The NAACP Legal Defense Fund and Planned Parenthood.
