NEW PROTOMARTYR / R. RING SINGLE AVAILABLE FOR PREORDER
Protomartyr return with a brand new track recorded at Candyland in Cincinnati with Mike Montgomery (R. Ring) in late 2014. “Blues Fesival” also features guest vocals by Kelley Deal (The Breeders, R. Ring). The duo of R. Ring contributes a b-side track – also recorded at Candyland – titled “Loud Underneath”. Both tracks are available as a limited 7” pressing -- find your copy in the shop.
CHASTITY BELT'S NEW LP, TIME TO GO HOME, IS OUT NOW
Recorded by José Díaz Rohena, Time to Go Home sees Seattle four-piece Chastity Belt take the nights out and bad parties of their past to their stretching points, watch the world around them break apart in anticipatory haze, and rebuild it in their own image with stunning clarity before anyone gets hung over. Time to Go Home is their first full-length for Hardly Art.
All LPs include a download code. Available on CD, LP, and digital -- find your copy here.
OUT NOW: I WANT TO GROW UP BY COLLEEN GREEN
I Want to Grow Up, the latest collection of songs from LA songstress Colleen Green, follows a newly 30-year-old Green as she carefully navigates a minefield of emotion. Her firm belief in true love is challenged by the inner turmoil caused by entering modern adulthood, but that doesn't mean that her faith is defeated. This time, she's got a little help from her friends: the full band heard here includes JEFF the Brotherhood's Jake Orrall and Diarrhea Planet's Casey Weissbuch, who collaborated with Green over ten days at Sputnik Sound in Nashville, TN.
First press of LPs available on clear wax with a blue/pink swirl (like so)! Find yours here.

COOL CHOICES BY S -- OUT NOW!
S is the long-running solo project of Jenn Ghetto (Carissa's Wierd). After many months of trying to get their schedules aligned, the band ended up in the studio with Chris Walla, at the Hall of Justice in Seattle. As he was setting up Ghetto's guitar amp combo and pulling gadgets off the shelves and microphones out of boxes he said to her, "This is how you make a Van Halen record." And then they made Cool Choices.
First press of LPs available on transparent gold wax!

LA SERA'S HOUR OF THE DAWN OUT NOW
In the summer of 2013, La Sera decamped to a sweltering studio in East Los Angeles with engineer Joel Jerome and banged out the ten songs that would become Hour of the Dawn—an album that never walks, but runs; a collision of unleashed punk and ‘80s power-pop. Hour of the Dawn, as its title suggests, heralds the beginning of a radiant and energetic new chapter in the evolution of La Sera.
First run of LPs pressed to opaque peachy orange vinyl! All LPs include a download code.
THE NEW PROTOMARTYR LP IS OUT NOW!
Protomartyr’s taut, austere rock was incubated in a freezing Detroit warehouse littered with beer cans and cigarette butts and warmed, feebly, by space heaters. Despite the cold, Protomartyr emerged with a sound that is idiosyncratic but relatable, hooky but off-kilter, and economical in a way that elicits comparisons to possible antecedents like Pere Ubu or The Fall.
All LPs include a lyric zine! All LPs also come with a download code. The first pressing of LPs on transparent red wax has sold out! All LP orders will receive black vinyl.
