Unearthing the long lost 'second album' from GREAT VALLEY, the prog-pop duo of Brattleboro VT. Jaws of Evil is a jungle fantasy lovingly crafted on a cassette 8-track in Peter's bedroom. Lush and tangled pop motifs crackling with wild-thing spirit and nocturnal unease, like a strange chorus of monkeys and toucans in love. Futuristic powerpop grooves and even a few moonlit ballads. With fantastic cover art by Charlie Key. A whole raw world on one cassette. Edition of 200, $5+shipping.

Hey Everyone, it's a little belated to announce I'm putting Spooky Town on hold for a spell. You might have noticed it's been more than a year since I released anything new. Thanks everyone for your continued interest, I'm still shipping orders every week and everything that still has a paypal button is still available in dwindling supply. Truth is I'm devoting all my energy to my own bands these days -- (check out Great Valley's new albums on NNA Tapes and Feeding Tube Records if you're interested. Look for a nasty album from Bird Names soon too, and more). Sorry to everyone who sent me a demo I never replied to. Spooky Town is going to come back as soon as I have the time to really do it right, and it's gonna be really dope. Thanks everyone for caring about this music, you are the best.
Lots of love <3 peter="">3>

After two years hiding in a cave of synthesizers, the Boston-turned-Canadian heartthrob EASYBOY reemerges with MIRROR KILLER: a dense trippy EP of wacked-out pop songs. Like Devo on roids, or prom night in a space station, EASYBOY slings some top-forty vibes through a zero-gravity odyssey. An off-kilter stack of drum machines submerged in a tangled net of synth lines. Bedroom lyrics and a robo voice. The pinnacle of deep-phase strange-new-world pop gem meditation. Edition of 300, $6+shipping.
RELEASE DATE OCTOBER 1st! Ships 9/29:

Blanche Blanche Blanche, before he was Jordan Piper Phillips or Bruce Hart, the diabolical soundsmith NALS GORING called his strength to service of the forge, forging HORSE BOYS II: a mysterious nostalgic collage of keyboard improvisations, geriatric voices, massacred songs, and what else? A real Where's-Waldo of a listening experience. Edition of 50, C30, $5+shipping.

Guerilla Toss is a 5-piece slopmath group serving up two 10-minute scoops of precision freak-out. Electronic drums and a mean synthesizer; a driving bass and a ravaged guitar; Kassie Carlson's heart-squashing she-beast vocals--somehow stacked as by an evil architect, to build an unlikely cathedral out of the ugliest bones. This is a band you have to see to believe. Expect to be hearing a lot more from them in the soon-future, including an LP from everyone's favorite Feeding Tube Records. C21, edition of 200, $5+shipping.

Somewhere in beach culture stretches a long finger of dirty blonde sand, where an entire day can yawn out unmoving, your nose-skin pale with salt, your eyes white and getting whiter. The purplish odor of baked seaweed spirals with the smells of food in a cart and the buzz of a biplane trailing a holiday greeting in red capitals. Parked between the mentholated lot lizards and the coconut-bra teengirls you meet Austin TX's SPIKED PUNCH in the back of a stationwagon. Their songs are spare and friendly, sung with the sounding-drone of an islander. Heavy with the musk of surf wax, crinkle fries, and the guitar wizards of the Golden Triangle. Discover 7 surf-space-reggae-pop jams to make you feel like driving your woody across the Pacific Ocean to the top of a volcano. C30, ltd. 100, $5+shipping.
