ROCK AND ROLL WIRES SCHOOL

There’s always gonna be a strong connection between rock and roll and high school aesthetic because most rock and rollers never make it out of high school. We don’t know if we’ll ever make it out. Bare Wires just put out a new video yesterday [featuring an all-star cast of a Black Belle, a Sandwitch,…

SON OF A FLEX

We’ve made mention of the latest flexi booklet from Castle Face Records a couple times already on here, but now that they’re actually starting to surface and send out we thought it worth it’s own big post. This is the second in a series of flexi booklets to come from Castle Face – the first…

THE MODERN GLYPHS

If there’s something you won’t hear us complaining about – it’s the amount of Sic Alps material we’ve been getting since they teamed up with Drag City. After last year’s Napa Asylum and a handful of singles [Vedley, Battery Townsley, Breadhead, and Pangaea Globe] you’d think that Mike Donovan’s got nothing better to do than…

Well, we’re 9 months deep into the 2011 year and we’ve only seen a couple Oh Sees releases [Castlemania, their Bruise Cruise split 7″, the singles compilation 2xLP, their contribution to the Flexi Book…] isn’t it about time for something else? Yep. In a little over two months [Nov. 15] we’ll see the next full…

FEELIN’ FLEXI

You might’ve seen this one on the shelves for a minute last week — Castle Face just put out a little booklet of flexies called Group Flex Vol. 1 featuring tracks from Thee Oh Sees, Ty & Mikal, Bare Wires, Blasted Canyons, Fresh & Onlys. It’s pretty killer. Something that has us more stoked than…

BACK TOUR THOSE DAYS

We’re gonna start this one out by saying we only have five copies of The Paperhead’s debut single left before it sells out. There… The guys are back around town and have been getting things together for their first full-fledged tour. They went on a short one a couple winters ago and they hit up…
