Mav Karlo - Strangers Like Us
**THIS IS A PREORDER, YOUR ORDER WON'T BE SHIPPED UNTIL WEEK OF RELEASE OCTOBER 16th, 2020**
Produced by Chris Coady (Amen Dunes, Beach House, Future Islands) and recorded at two iconic studios (Sunset Sound in L.A. and Sonic Ranch in the Texas border town of Tornillo), Strangers Like Us marks a departure from the carefree indie-rock of Versteeg’s now-defunct band Hollerado. With its gracefully sparse arrangements, the album centers on Versteeg’s lyrical storytelling, revealing a narrative voice deeply attuned to the beauty in the ordinary and routinely overlooked. Despite that stripped-back approach, Strangers Like Us draws incredibly rich texture from Versteeg’s delicate melodies and warm vocal work, and from the spirited performances of guest musicians like Katy Goodman of Vivian Girls (on vocals), Charlie Spencer of Dizzy (keys, drums), and Versteeg’s Hollerado bandmate Nixon Boyd (guitar, bass). An album elegantly steeped in memory, Strangers Like Us navigates the often-painful act of looking back with grit and clarity and unbridled imagination.
METZ - Atlas Vending
**THIS IS A PRE-ORDER, NOTHING WILL BE SHIPPED BEFORE THE RELEASE WEEK - OCTOBER 9th 2020**
*Vinyl colour may differ slightly in person*
While past METZ albums thrived on an abrasive relentlessness, the trio embarked on Atlas Vending with the goal to make a more patient and honest record—something that invited repeated listens rather than a few exhilarating bludgeonings. It’s as if the band realized they were in it for the long haul, and their music could serve as a constant as they navigated life’s trials and tribulations. The result is a record that sounds massive, articulate, and earnest. Bolstered by the co-production of Ben Greenberg (Uniform) and the engineering and mixing skills of Seth Manchester (Battles, Lightning Bolt) at Machines with Magnets in Pawtucket, Rhode Island, METZ deliver the most dynamic, dimensional, and compelling work of their career.
Le Ren - Morning & Meloncholia
*THIS IS A PREORDER, ORDERS WILL SHIP WEEK OF AUGUST 21St*
Two years ago, Lauren Spear’s ex-boyfriend was killed in a car accident. Since then, she has been struggling with the immeasurable weight of being the sole keeper of their shared memories and in response, translated a sliver of that experience into music. Her EP, Morning & Melancholia, is a mediation on mourning, memory and how to live with the ellipses you’re forever left with in the wake of loss.
Dizzy - The Sun And Her Scorch
**THIS IS A PRE-ORDER. ORDERS WILL BE SHIPPED OUT ON WEEK OF RELEASE**
The sophomore album from the JUNO award winning band, Dizzy.
In bringing The Sun and Her Scorch to life, Dizzy tapped into their increased sense of closeness and confidence, an element that Munshaw attributes to their frequent touring over the past few years (including stints opening for artists like Death Cab for Cutie, Oh Wonder, Tokyo Police Club, and U.S. Girls). Describing the process as “totally challenging and completely rewarding,” the band took an entirely self-directed approach to every aspect of the album’s creation, introducing a more kinetic energy into their sound through their lavish use of live instrumentation. “We wanted to take the reins and make sure that what we ended up putting out was exactly what we envisioned,” says Munshaw, noting that Charlie played a vital role in the album’s production. Recorded partly at Mechanicland Studios—and in Munshaw’s mother’s basement—The Sun and Her Scorch also unfolds in subtle sonic details that speak to the playful spontaneity at the heart of their artistry.

Teen Ravine - Self-Titled LP
Teen Ravine’s Nick Rose and Dan Griffin want to get close but not too close; a sentiment that may well be the hallmark of a generation’s struggle with the desire for, and fear of, intimacy. The two began collaborating from their apartment studios in Toronto in the spring of 2016, exploring themes of emotional alienation through the obsessive intimacy of bedroom recordings while aspiring to the west-coast pop/R&B of the late 70s and early 80s.
Teen Ravine's self-titled full length LP was released to overwhelming support and acclaim by music publications such as DIY, The Line of Best Fit, and The 405 among others. Noisey (Vice) dubbed the debut "Sophisti-Pop" and NY Magazine's Vulture called it "just so right". On August 2, 2019, the band released their debut LP available for the first time on 12" Vinyl.

KOKOKO! - Fongola
KOKOKO! is a collective born in Kinshasa capital of the Democratic Republic of Congo, a creative collision of different artists which fused at a block party. It consists of musical instrument inventors from the Ngwaka neighbourhood, electronic producer Débruit, Makara Bianko (aka the Lingwala devil) and his dancers bursting forth from the Lingwala neighbourhood.
They’re best known for creating a contemporary aesthetic all their own by re-wiring and up-cycling materials such as metal, cans, engine parts and plastic containers found in Kinshasa’s streets into vital sculptural resonant dance music. Their distorted fast rhythms and spontaneous lo-fi electric sounds provide the chaotic soundtrack for the city's harsh yet abundantly creative realities.
It’s a brand new scene - radical, dangerous and thriving in a country whose political instability is felt first and most urgently on the streets of Kinshasa, an urban patchwork stretching further than the eye can see in Africa’s 3rd largest capital city. KOKOKO! is the spectacular sonic backdrop, the new, no holds barred aesthetic emanating from the downtown clubs (in between the government-imposed power cuts).
Includes your choice of LP or CD and a signed postcard!
