The Beets - Don't Fit In My Head 7"

The Beets follow up their dreamy low-fi Captured Tracks debut lp with this single on the same the label.

Picking up the tempo ever so slightly on this new record, The Beets still maintain that hazy slow motion essence that gives the sensation of wafting through some sun drenched, drug addled, garage rock time distortion.

Ironically self aware hipsters and lethargic pot heads everywhere are certain to subtly bob their heads appreciatively to these good vibrations. You will too. (Captured Tracks, 2009)

Dead Ghosts - 9 song live tape

These young Vancouver lads sort of have a west coast, early 60’s rock 'n' roll sound, stripped down and recorded at high volume with allot of sizzling distortion.

Tape is the perfect format for Dead Ghosts, appropriately muffing their potentially deafening audio recklessness. Sound shmound, these rapscallions attack their songs with such raw savagery you won’t care that it’s impossible make out what they singing about over all the glorious fuzz.

Parents (from 50 years ago) beware! This recording will turn your sons into craven fiends and your daughters in to ravenous animals. (Southpaw Records, 2009)
