DE018 | “OUT PASSED NOWHERE” album by OLIVER RAY

Out Passed Nowhere is the debut solo album from Oliver Ray. Unfurling like a long stretch of road leading out past the edge of town, the album takes the listener to uncharted destinations beyond the edges of the map.

Centered around Ray’s songwriting, the album finds him backed by a kaleidoscopic array of guest performers from the Bay Area, Tucson, and the NYC music communities. Ray’s transcendent tunes are brought to life in stunning wide screen detail by members of Giant Sand, Sugar Candy Mountain, The Myrrors, Xixa, China, the legendary Howe Gelb, and a special appearance from the high priestess and poet laureate of punk herself.

DE016 | “AND THEN NOTHING HAPPENED” album by CHINA

And Then Nothing Happened is the new album from Bay Area folk-rock band China. Once again, the collection of songs revolves around the cinematic songwriting that has become the band’s trademark. This time the characters are a bunch of beautiful losers caught in a freeze frame hovering somewhere between mundanity and epiphany like something out of a Raymond Carver story. In the album’s opening track ’Marnie’ the narrator looks back at a love that’s gone but not forgotten, wondering if it’s really all over for good; on the title track ‘And Then Nothing Happened’ the narrator comes to terms with his broken dreams and the reality of a life where there’s nothing left for him after last call.

DE014 | “L’ATITUDE” album by LATITUDE

“L’atitude” is the debut full length album from San Francisco-based rock & pop group Latitude. Front woman Amy Fowler leads the band through 11 tracks of effervescent power pop bliss with infectious melodies, jangly guitars, sparkling synths, and more hooks than your local bait & tackle. Imagine Big Star and Blondie making a record together in the elegant 80’s, with The Pretenders, Sparks, and The Nerves sprinkled on top — the perfect treat for a sunny summer day.

Available on Cassette, Digital + Streaming

 
 

DE013 | “ZEB ZAITZ” album by ZEB ZAITZ

DE012 | “POOL OF TEARS” album by CHINA

‘Pool of Tears’ is the first full length album from Northern California folk-rock group China. Rendered in vivid technicolor, each song is a vignette with cinematic scope, populated by doomed anti-heroes and desolate landscapes. These are stories of life on the road, life on the run, life on the wrong side of the tracks—a blend of the real and the absurd.

Available on Cassette, Digital + Streaming

 
 

DE011 | “BANANA SPLIT” single by EVERYONE IS DIRTY

“Banana Split” is a schizophrenic cassette single featuring two tracks that unwind like fever dreams. The title track jumps along warped soundwaves and amphetamine crunch, recalling the Dead Kennedys as much as David Bowie or Roxy Music; Meanwhile “Wax Mannequin Mode” wafts in like a ghostly breeze, a rare glimpse of the softer side of Everyone Is Dirty, evoking The Meat Puppets and Elliott Smith.

Available for purchase on Cassette

 
 

DE010 | “PACIFIC SURF LINE” album by GOSPELBEACH

“Pacific Surf Line” is the debut album from GospelbeacH — the new band featuring members of Beachwood Sparks, Ryan Adams & the Cardinals, and Everest. Produced by Scott Hackwith, along with singer-songwriter Brent Rademaker and guitarist Jason Soda, the nine-track collection of tunes recalls the sun and surf of The Beach Boys; the Sunset Strip vibrations of Buffalo Springfield and The Byrds; the melancholy musings of Gene Clark and Graham Parsons; and the rollicking bootcut boogie of Poco and The Flying Burrito Brothers.

Available on Cassette, Digital + Streaming

 
 
 

DE009 | “GHOST BLUE” 7” single by SPARROWS GATE

Singer-songwriter Zebedee Zaitz and his band of outsiders venture to new horizons on this set of songs, the follow-up to 2013’s “Beneath the Electric Church.” Owing as much to Rimbaud as to rock ‘n roll, these two tracks of surrealist folk-rock invoke the sublime. As much a follow-up as a sign of things to come, “Ghost Blue” is the most powerful music the group has made to date. Fans of the transcendent tunes of Cass McCombs, Bill Callahan, and Little Wings (of which Zaitz is a current touring member) will find much to enjoy within the world of “Ghost Blue.”

Available on Vinyl 7”, Digital + Streaming

 
 

DE008 | “CHAMPIONS” album by WHISKERMAN

“Champions” is a masterpiece of wide-ranging scope and ambition, the definitive statement from a band in their prime. Featuring barroom rock ‘n roll, blue-eyed soul, pastoral folk, workingman’s blues, and rainy day ragas, the album is a tour de force that takes the listener on a hero’s journey of Dostoevsky-ian proportions. The songs deal with life and love and success and failure and what it means to be alive in a world where everything is small.

Available on Vinyl LP, Cassette, Digital + Streaming

 
 

DE007 | “GEODESIC DOME PIECE” album by THE BLANK TAPES

Geodesic Dome Piece features 12 tracks of stoned-out rock ‘n roll bliss — ranging from jangly guitar balladry to electric sitar psych-outs, neo-pop nuggets, 70s rock juggernauts, and heavy fuzz freakouts.

Available on Vinyl LP, Cassette, Digital + Streaming

 
 

DE006 | “MYSTIC HITS” album by SUGAR CANDY MOUNTAIN

If Brian Wilson had dropped acid on the beach in Brazil and decided to record an album with Os Mutantes and The Flaming Lips, it would sound like this — all psychedelic pop Wall-of-Sound and beach balladry. From the fuzz guitar of “Soak Up The City,” to the electric sitar and 60’s pop vibes of “Lovely Time,” to mellow beach ballad “Saudade Love,” to the super catchy “Knock Me Down,“ Mystic Hits is the psychedelic soundtrack to the 21st century, featuring space-age sounds and far-out frequencies from the tripped out tropics.

Available on Digital + Streaming — SOLD OUT on Vinyl LP & Cassette

 
 

DE005 | “MOON MIRAGE” album by TRANS VAN SANTOS

Moon Mirage is the new album from Trans Van Santos, the latest incarnation of acid gospel visionary Mark Matos and his transcendent tunes.

DE004 | “BENEATH THE ELECTRIC CHURCH” album by SPARROWS GATE

Beneath the Electric Church is the debut full length album from Sparrows Gate -- Sun bleached folk-rock and 70’s FM hatchback jams from the land of Big Sur. Equal parts Big Pink, Crazy Horse, Dylan, and Dire Straits; Folky country boogie, ragged rock n’ roll, and breezy pacific ocean blues. Lavender Mornings and New Horizons, indeed.

DE001 | “WELCOME TO DEEP ELLUM” album by DEEP ELLUM

Deep Ellum plays a homespun brand of soulful Americana they call bootcut boogie, cosmic country, and roadhouse rock ‘n roll. Fronted by singer-songwriter David Glasebrook, the group evokes the swampy blues and greasy southern soul of Creedence Clearwater Revival, the backwoods beat of The Band, and the workingman poetics of The Grateful Dead. “Welcome to Deep Ellum” is their first release.

Available on Vinyl LP, Compact Disc + Streaming
