What's up everyone, quick hump day update to let ya know that we've got a new Smirk single up today! The LP should be ready to pick up from the plant in the next week or so (weather willing), so we're right on track to have preorders in the mail and hopefully arriving to you by release day, March 5th. Represses of the Silicone Prairie and Sweeping Promises LPs will also be ready at the same time AND we've got 2 new LPs from Spread Joy and Waste Man ready to announce on March 5th as well. Until next time...stay warm out there.
Smirk - N.W.O. single
Check it out - Smirk just dropped another hot new single! This one has me thinking something like Gun Club meets The Cheifs. In other words, it rocks. We've also got a limited number of longsleeves coming in from Cali next week and available to order today. Limited blue vinyl is well over half gone as well. If you're in the UK/EU order from Drunken Sailor Records.
Wowza, we've been getting some amazing submissions as of late (we really do listen to every submission) and are pleased to welcome two new groups to the Feel It roster! Spread Joy are from Chicago and their self titled debut 12" is an absolute stunner...it has the simplicity and immediacy of the first Wire album, wrapped up in some no-wave moves, and features the vocal debut of (soon to be) your favorite new front person, Briana Hernandez. On the other hand, Waste Man have been gigging around NOLA for a few years now, with several cassette releases out. We've spent the better part of a year getting One Day It'll All Be You ready for release, and let me tell ya, this one is going to turn heads. It's like these dudes were plucked out of the '84/'84 SST catalog with a mega group dynamic and musicianship, and of course the colorful musical past of New Orleans runs strong through the album. Both records go up for announcement/preorder on March 5th but if ya click on the pics below you'll be linked to both groups' Bandcamps. There's a Spread Joy track off the record and several Waste Man releases to peruse in the meantime!
take a trip back in time with Clyde and the Nightswingers
When I was compiling Days of a Quiet Sun, I met Brent Hosier from Arcania International. Brent is pretty much the authority on all things Virginia music - at the helm of compilation series like Aliens, Psychos, & Wild Things and Old Virginia Soul. He had been out of the record biz for about 10 years, but I've helped him resurrect the label with this Clyde and the Nightswingers LP. It's a very cool psychedelic/garage rock trip back in time with recordings from '67 - as the story goes recorded for LA cult director William Rotsler's acid freakout film, The Enormous Midnight. We've got copies of the LP, along with some dead stock psych/soul/funk titles from Arcania's back catalog. You can check out the Clyde LP here!
