This Just In: Sounds, Flexible and Otherwise

Stop in and check out what’s been hittin’ the shelves!

Factums – Gilding The Lillies 2LP:
“This mythic release has been rumored and debated for some time and to say this is their crowing achievement is an understatement. Factums have been shrouded in mystery, rarely playing live — this hermetic Seattle/Chicago combo have been releasing rustic/futuristic artifacts for a variety of labels over the last few years. On Gilding The Lilies, all the ideas come together: sci-fi surf rock, post-apocalyptic murder ballads, musique concrète anthems, hell, on Gilding The Lilies they even dedicate the latter half of this masterpiece to Far Eastern exotica and incorporate sitars and tablas. Yeah, this ain’t no Beatles trip, it’s a Factums take on their inner chakra or pith helmet exploitation or whatever the kids are calling it these days. Limited one-time pressing of 700 copies.” -Assophone

Fruit Bats – Tripper LP:
“A self-declared ‘bittersweet meditation on hitting the road, leaving the familiar behind and reinventing yourself.’ Featuring generous heaps of falsetto and sparse, jagged guitar licks, Fruit Bats’ Tripper plays as a spectral highway romp that pairs jaunty folk-pop ditties with effervescent pop.” -130 BPM

Les Demoniaques – Teenage Lust Flexi:
Tamaryn + Dee Dee Penny = Les Demoniaques. The debut recording, a cover of Jesus & Mary Chain’s “Teenage Lust” is pressed on a one-sided postcard flexi. Limited to 1000 copies. No repress. Each flexi comes with a hi-quality mp3 download of the track. Released by True Panther.
