FAX 040: Free Weed/Sam Gas Can split C40


From both coasts of the good USA comes a split tape of the dopest degree. Finally together on one tape: Portland, OR's weirdo bong pop doper Free Weed and Northampton, MA's legendary cartoon wonder Sam Gas Can. A collaborative release between Gnar Tapes and SGC's Faux-Pas Recordings label, this is the symbol of a bond that stretches across the entire span of America. This bad boy of a tape contains a brand new album by Free Weed called "TGIF 24/7" and a brand new EP by Sam Gas Can called "Why Can't I Be Normal?", as well as delicious art and swell download card. This is the Spring Fling you have been waiting for. Pop that tape in the player and let that good ole American pop music do it's thing...

FAX 039: (D)(B)(H) - “Masterpieces of Objective Reporting” LP


A full length LP featuring two side long cuts by this ever-changing ensemble. Recorded in a 19th century log cabin in Southern Indiana, these recordings as a quartet showcase the group in their most patient and cohesive display to date... Eavesdropped upon as soft talkers finish each others sentences, a silhouette of sound passes through the room. Spittle and scrapes coalesce into a single vessel of subtlety as thin fingers course along your scalp. Slowly dragged - into and through an alien terrain in a dream state of heightened awareness. Small motors, distant whirling tones and a vibrating necklace; under the influence of being under the water. File under: lowercase, non-idiomatic improv, deep listening. Pressed in an edition of 210 copies on thick vinyl. Cover art by John McCormick spray painted & screen printed onto recycled jackets, some brown and others white. Co-released with Friends & Relatives and Gilgongo Records.

FAX 038: Robert Ridley-Shackleton - "E. Jack" C30


With previous releases on Goaty Tapes and Feeding Tube Records, Britain's boy toy brings 30 manic minutes of lustful vocal loops, creating his own brand of Prince-style sexiness. More pop than not, and just a little bit tender (song titles like "Don't Torture Me", "Somewhere Better", "Just 1 Teardrop"), you're bound to make a mess in at least one article of clothing. Edition of 50.

FAX 037: The Fribbles - "Meet the Fribbles" C20


"That was great, guys, like Vietnam" -Nick Williams (One Kind Favor)

Described by Byron Coley as "ice cream rock", the collaboration of Anthro Rex (internet famous alcoholic) and Sam Gas Can (hot dog-eating, South Park-watching cretin) is the product of two dudes with no interest in practicing and a severe passion for milkshakes. Dumb drumming, vocal freakouts, and a Kate Bush cover here and there. Recorded live at home in Northampton, MA. Edition of 50.

FAX 036: Tracey Trance - "Pyper Kub" LP


In today's world of "internet presence," the music of Tracey Trance is as "real people" as it gets.  When Tracey (AKA Tyler, longtime resident of Hangtown, USA) does happen to get on a computer, it's only to spin rainbow colored poetry to a friend or figure out the next spot he's gonna park his truck.  Although he's been granted releases on such taste making labels as Not Not Fun and Night People, he's turned in lo-fi home recordings that are difficult to pin down in any one time, place or genre.  Pyper Kub is his debut long playing vinyl and it is a startling and heartfelt departure from the hypnagogic keyboard recordings that many have enjoyed over the last few years. This is a song based record, focusing mainly on guitar, bass and vocals.  There's a little Slang Tang, some serious wah-wah, a dollop of Joe Walsh circa But Seriously, Folks...  and there's a lot of Tyler's odd, elfish spirit.  A collection of road songs that play out in some sort 70s mirror universe.  My favorite finds our hero contemplating the fine line between freedom and imprisonment while a K-9 unit searches his truck.  This record has a way of growing on you, and I've played my copy of the original ultra-limited cassette release countless times.  Nifty vinyl co-release with Trd W/dHot ReleasesFeeding Tube RecordsOne Kind Favor, L'animaux Tryst Canada Goose Tapes. One time edition of 700 copies on cream colored vinyl.

FAX 035: Anthro Rex - “Return to Sender” C30


Famed tumblrer and collage-ist, Daniel James Cashman, presents us with his most personal and, believe it or not, introspective release to date. The songs and attitude of Anthropophagous Rex have long been a heavy influence on my own music, so I couldn’t be prouder to package this one up for the hungry masses. Can’t lose with song titles like “Snuggler’s Blues” and this summer’s big hit, “I Hate Stuff That Sucks”. Thank you for the hard rock. Edition of 50.

FAX 032: Suicide Magnets - “Whore Bath” C26


After at least a year of relentless touring, Philly resident Wendy J. Hyatt gives us her first formal recording under her Suicide Magnets moniker. Produced by Elijah Forrest (Terrors), these ten static-soaked songs are guaranteed to entrance you into an uneasy state of ecstasy as her loner guitar vibes and vocal wobbles scramble up your heart.

Edition of 100.

FAX 028: Noise Nomads - “Menacing Bells” C30

The swamp hag lifts himself out of the mire for another screeching, swirling onslaught of harsh owl howl, bowls and sticks turned into tools of oppression. Is that the door? Is it...? Edition of 100.
