Recess Going On’s

21 Mar

Posted by: Todd C

Just a few notes here: First off, we got a few releases on our Bandcamp page bargain priced to encourage actually paying for music. I hate to say this but it’s super surprising the amount of support we’ve gotten since launching these. Sure it’s cheap as hell to own an album (most noteworthy: FYP-COMPLETE CRAP. 93 songs for only $10!) but it almost restores my faith in humanity. It doesn’t even seem to be about owning mp3′s as opposed to supporting a band/label. Regardless of the motives, it does not go unrecognized in these parts. Every time a get a notification that someone paid for our music,and even paying more than asked!, I say to myself “This person rules”…and a sailor dies.

Benny The Jet Rodriguez-Home.Run. LP out now! (for reals!!!)

21 Oct

Posted by: Todd C

(This one got super delayed at the plating stage. Here it is!)San Pedro locals Lauren Freeman & Joey Centofani started BTJR as a two piece. They caught my ear,using no professionalism whatsoever, at our local dive, Harold’s, one night with some crazy catchy songs. They asked me to record a song for the WUB tape comp and that snowballed into an album’s worth, recorded here at Clown Sound. Shit started rollin’ and yours truly tracked some keyboards and was asked to play live with em. The album turned out awesome.  Again, Here it is!

Stream the full album here!

Track Listing:
Home. Alley Cat. Cement Overcoat. Summer Hatin’ (Happened So fast). Stand Around.
Don’t Call A Girl Tony Robbins. Wine Stained Teeth. Heart Attack. Aloha Mr Hand. Run.

Future Virgins-Late Republic LP out now!!

03 Oct

Posted by: Todd C

My feelings,after first hearing Late Republic, were pretty much on par with the feelings that I had when I first heard Bent Outta Shape’s Stray Dog Town masters. Not comparing sounds just feelings. Beautifully recorded,mastered, lacquered etc but that almost takes a back to seat to the song writing and delivery. They could’ve recorded this album in my mailbox,while eating a full course ham dinner, and it would’ve still been vital. I’m glad they didn’t do that cos the end result sounds sonically bad fucking ass! Read more & buy!
