CREATUROS "POPSICLE" Reissue on CULTURES OF SOUL RECORDS
We are excited to announce that we have partnered up with Cultures of Soul records to reissue CREATUROS' "Popsicle" on all digital platforms! "Popsicle" is now available via Spotify, Amazon, and other online retailers. Culled from a variety of sessions between 2010-14, "Popsicle" gives you a taste of the band in a variety of flavors and colors - just be sure not to eat it up too quick - jams this sticky sweet are apt to give you a stomach ache.
"...considering that this cassette release is an odds-and-ends collection of tracks the band recorded over the past few years, 'Popsicle' falls well on the right side of the only binary that matters: quality." ~Boston Globe
"Bright guitars, handclaps, a vocal cadence Mick Jagger woulld be proud of, and plenty of charisma to spare." ~Dig Boston
NICE GUYS "LAPD" 3rd Repress of 100 cassettes!
NICE GUYS pRIMORDIAL sOUNDS debut cassette "LAPD" has been repressed for a 3rd time! Don't be the last one to pick up this killer tape! Order your own via our Webstore or pick one up at the next NICE GUYS show!
"NICE GUYS are weed punks Alex, Matt, Cam and Jake, and LAPD is their ragged love letter to Allston Massachusetts. Recorded by local analog-ist Ian Doerr, it's a fierce and gritty homage to things that make life worth living, namely weed, booze, and snacks. Don't be surprised if the raw intensity of tracks such as 'Herb Chambers' or 'Street Surfer' tear your speaker to shreds, or if the smell of weed smoke and stale beer start emanating from your tape deck. NICE GUYS are one of our favorite Boston acts and we are extremely psyched to share their EP with you...again!"
