Three new releases today. The first is New Hampshire's Nate Laban "Is Wearing Yellow". Nate is best known for his work with the punk rock band The Frosting. The album is a collection of 16 songs ranging from piano confessionals to organ-driven murder ballads to fleshed out demos of songs originally made for The Frosting. Recorded August through October of 2008 in his pieced together home studio, all instruments on the album were recorded and performed by Nate with the exception of one track. This release is limited to 150 silkscreened copies. The label is limited to 25 copies.
The second is electro synth-pop band Providence, RI's The Inclined and their release "The First Day of Many" The Inclined, Bill Paukert (vocals, synths, programming, drums) and Jeremy Withers (bass, guitar, fuzz) have been playing together since 2000. After a number of lineup changes, the pair decided to change their basic indie-rock approach to accommodate their growing electro-pop leanings. Having now embraced the studio as an instrument and compositional tool, they have distilled their love of bass fuzz and synchronized arpeggiation into their first full album. This release is limited to 50 silkscreened copies.
Six Star General's "Spaceship to Planet Cookie" is now available. Six Star General releases their first collection of new material in fifteen months. Recorded during an all-day session with Scott Rancourt at Summing Point in November 2008, it features thirteen tracks over 31 minutes. As per their contract requirements, it contains two instrumentals. Influences include Minutemen, Devo, and Husker Du. This is limited to 100 silkscreened copies.
All are available for purchase over at the label website.
