Couple new records up on the site. Sas pretty excited for that Oh Sees single but $11 (after shipping/taxes) for a 7" single is a bit much. Can't believe I'm passing but that price :shock:, cheaper to wait for a singles collection installment.

I also don't care about the tarot cards. However, both Damaged Bug LPs are perfection to my ears, and the one cut I heard from this 7" is killer, so . . . Castle Face gets more dough from me . . .

Huh.
Can't seem to find a pre-order for the new Damaged Bug LP directly from CF.

I think their last big missive said later this month . . . ?

The original pitchfork article about the record said the 10th but the download code I have still isn't activated.

Digging this thing so far but I usually fully process records once I have it digitally so I can listen while I drive.

BIG drop over at Castle Face.
Four variants for Bunker Funk, signed edition for the Dwyer art book, and Damaged Bug repressings!
EDIT: I wavered on the glow edition and it was sold out in ten to fifteen minutes. All are sold out except the split color and black.

pretty excited about that book. It'll be cool to have a number of the actual posters and then this book (which hopefully has some details about each piece)

Grabbed the GITD but kind of itching to pick up one of the splatters now too from the U.K...

Very excited about the book though and curious to see what test pressings will be auctioned off! King Gizzard would be rad but even the thought of that makes my wallet hurt.

edit: seeing now that the newsletter labels them as Dwyer's tests so I'm guessing they'll be Oh Sees / Damaged Bug

What was this post on Facebook all about?
We've recently been made aware of some ugly opinions Matthew and Doris Melton of Dream Machine gave in a recent interview in Still In Rock, as part of the promotion for their Castle Face LP that came out last month. Castle Face does not agree with the statements on ICE, immigration, feminism, and sexual assault and they are in no way representative of Castle Face or the other artists on the label. While we can't do much about this record that's just last month come out, or the 5 or so before it, we will not be working with them again. As independent record label runners, band members, and generally busy humans ourselves, we don't always pore over everything that's written about us or the artists on the label, and I posted this story to Facebook myself without reading the whole thing, and boy do I regret it now. Both John and I are appalled. We've urged them to make a statement, but it's no longer our prerogative to be financing, promoting, and endorsing their music any more than we already have. For our part we're going to find a decent charity to donate our end of the profits from the record to, though something tells me this won't exactly send it flying off the shelves. Peace love and respect to all humans, refugees, and victims of violence - we're horrified and ashamed by this and we appreciate people being upset but respectful in letting us know how they felt about it.
