Happy to announce two brand new releases and one updated version of an old release!
First up is the premier release in what we hope to be a long series of 4-way splits that we’re going to be putting out. This split features brand new tracks from Reservoir, Summerpunx, Runaway Brother, and Secret Grief. Every track is exclusive to this release and represents each band’s unique take on “indie”, “emo”, “punk”, or whatever you want to call it. The releases is limited to 318 copies on Random Colored Vinyl (13 different variants!) You can download the entire split on our Bandcamp Page and pre-order a 7” on our Storenvy Page.
Next up is a cassette release of Onward an EP released earlier this year by Brighton, Michigan’s Parkway & Columbia. Parkway & Columbia is a young band with no members over the age of 20. Despite this they already have multiple releases under their belt. Onward is the band’s best work yet and features five tracks of laid back and texture-laden indie rock that combines male and female vocals to create an atmospheric world for the listener to get lost in. The cassette release is limited to 50 copies on clear/black tape. You can pre-order the cassette on our Storenvy Page and download the tracks from our Bandcamp Page.
Finally up is a new cover for the I Salsa Your Face/Hayford 7” originally released by Tiger! Tiger!. This update is long overdue and the new cover features a new perspective on the old artwork and of course replaces “Tiger! Tiger!” with “Secret Grief”. This cover option is limited to 100 copies. You can pre-order the new version on our Storenvy Page as well as download the tracks off of our Bandcamp Page.
In addition to these new releases we have added some distro items to our online store. This includes shirts from Small Parks and Secret Grief, Small Parks and Hampshire CDs, and some other goodies that you can find.
The YWCA provides support to victims of domestic and dating violence, sexual assault, child sexual abuse, and stalking, such as an emergency shelter, counseling, advocacy, supportive housing, and 24-hour confidential hotlines. Serving nearly 5,000 people each year, the YWCA is committed to eliminating racism; empowering women and girls; and promoting peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all.

Every dollar raised from this project goes straight to the YWCA and helps them to continue the important work they are doing. Even if you can’t give support with money today, please help to spread the word! I’d also encourage you to connect with YWCA online and keep track of what they’re doing.
I played a new song called “Faking It” for my bud Matt a few months back and it’s now available for download on bandcamp!
