DAKOTA/DAKOTA - SHOOT IN THE DARK+ LP
Hey, remember that time we pressed 100 copies of DAKOTA/DAKOTA's discography as an LP+7" and the disappeared right away? Well, we decided to give their output a more thorough reissue. We pressed a re-cut version of the discography that includes all 15 songs on a single LP with brand new artwork (check out that spot gloss on the LP jackets!) by Steve Reidell, random colored vinyl (an awesome mix of cool colors), a download code, and even a bonus download of the first 2 song DAKOTA/DAKOTA demo (which includes early versions of two of the songs from the full length). It's a nice little package for fans of instrumental math/indie rock that basically shaped the 4th wave emo revival (for better or worse). This record rules. These dudes rule. And we're glad to finally give this the vinyl treatment. Mike, Colin, and Jim are all busy these days in RUSSIAN CIRCLES, RLYR, and JOB respectively, but hey, maybe we can talk them into doing a reunion show some time? Stream the whole thing and maybe pick up a copy HERE.

PINK GUYS - 1471 12" LATHE CUT
We heard you like side projects. We also heard you like super limited stereo hi-fi lathe cuts that sound and look like standard pressed records. Well, you're in luck. PINK GUYS is the side project of the now mostly defunct PINK EYES. The project started in 2014 when Dave Pacifico was on an excursion to Peru and the rest of the band, Craig Woods, Justin Wexler, and Mike Twietmeyer did not want to just sit idle for a few months. So, instead, they switched instruments and wrote and recorded their 12 song debut 2343. Dave left again a few months later, and they wrote and recorded 13 more songs, but never finished them. Fast forward about 4 years, and they are finally finished. The sophomore album, four years in the making, is called 1471 and it rules. We decided to have just 20 single-sided 12" lathe cuts made of this release, because hey, why not? They are already mostly gone, so jump on it while you can. It's a pop punk hybrid of sorts. You can give the whole thing a spin right now. If you order you'll get the download immediately, but the actual lathes will ship in September or early October and will include the lyrics and even basic chords so you can play along on your instrument of choice! You can spin that HERE.

LETTERING - LETTERING CS
Three releases in 2018? Yep. We're crazy. Earlier this summer our sub-label Cold Slither Tapes released the debut 8 song album from Chicago's LETTERING. It's some killer riffy poppy emo/indie rock that you will love. Limited to 100 copies, pro-dubbed, imprinted pink cassettes with a download code. Don't just take our word for it, spin it and grip it HERE.
