  • It’s been hard keeping this one a secret, but YES THE RUMORS ARE TRUE JEFF THE BROTHERHOOD HAS A DOUBLE-ALBUM COMING OUT NEXT MONTH CALLED “GLOBAL CHAKRA RHYTHMS” AND WE HAD A BEAUTIFUL PREORDER PACK COMPLETE WITH COLORED VINYL AND A MEDITATION KIT BUT WE SOLD OUT IN LESS THAN 48 HOURS BUT YOU CAN HEAR THE NEW SINGLE “RADIATING FIBER PLANE” ON STEREOGUM AND NASHVILLE, YOU CAN GET YOUR HANDS ON GCR EARLY AT THEIR HALLOWEEN SHOW OKAY ALRIGHT WE ARE EXCITED
  • We are also very excited for Cassette Store Day tomorrow!! We’re releasing Twin Compulsions, a twelve-year collaboration between Frank Orrall (Poi Dog Pondering, Thievery Corporation) and Robert Ellis Orrall (you know the man). It brings together samples, found sounds, unfound sounds, morphed and mutated sounds, interviews collected over twenty years, storytelling, and more to create a new kind of folksong for this DIGITAL WORLD. If you just can’t wait til tomorrow, you can preorder your copy (and hear “Anna Tabor” featuring Mabel Elaine the Grandmotherhood) here.
  • We have heard your requests and answered them and tomorrow we will ALSO have a few cassette players for those of you who have been faithfully buying our tapes with no way to play them. Each one is lovingly painted and comes with batteries and headphones so you can get to jammin right away.
  • 467 Surf and Gun Club members, we’ve added a ton of stuff to your super secret part of the website, including a bunch of painting, zines, and postcard sets by Mikie Poland, the artist behind our September art crawl and many of our show posters. (For instance, our 2015 official South by Southwest showcase poster, which now comes with our SXSW mixtape. But we can’t say any more! This is a SECRET!)
  • Austin, you lucky dogs! Diarrhea Planet are headed down in December to play Canned Fest, brought to you by the same people behind Untapped Fest. Yes. A combination rock n roll/beer fest, featuring appropriately named bands like Built to Spill and Shotgun Friday and booze from a thousand (okay, 40) breweries.
