Audacity-Mellow Cruisers LP/CD/Download!!

09 Jul

Posted by: Todd C

One of my favorite ALL TIME local bands finally finished their superb second album. The progression is bad ass and super natural! I might regret that sentence but F it!

Audacity recently spent three years spent on relentless touring, working up and scrapping (except for a few rare 7″s) what could have been an album all its own…READ MORE and BUY!

Toys That Kill – Fambly 42 LP/CD/CASS OUT NOW!! TOUR!

14 May

Posted by: Todd C


TOYS THAT KILL “Fambly 42″ LP / CD / CASS

…And after 12 years, they’ve turned this into some kind of science. There’s a chord change in “Nervous Rocks” or “Freddy And His Mother” that’s a Toys That Kill signature, where the song bends in a way you don’t expect and barrels right through the center of you. There’s a beat on “V Chip” or “I’ve Been Stabbed” that just about breaks the song in half…READ MORE

Treasure Fleet-Cocamotion LP out now!

25 Apr

Posted by: Todd C



In summer 2007, just on the heels of recording “Marvels of Industry” with his band the Arrivals, Isaac Thotz went on a month long binge of drink and drugs and 1960’s psychedelic rock that ended with a self-recorded twelve song demo of acoustic psychedelic pop songs, a collection sounding like Syd Barrett outtakes. At the end of the month, the Arrivals went on tour with Underground Railroad to Candyland, where Isaac showed his recordings to Todd Congelliere (of URTC and owner of Recess Records) and by the end of that week, on a rooftop party at a tenement in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn, they’d resolved to start their new mod-psych band…READ MORE

Posted by: Todd C


Summer Vacation-Condition LP (Recess#155) CD available too,courtesy of Lauren Records.
