Today is a fun day for us to share the news that Daniel B. Lynch (aka Sunglow, aka Dawn Lipschitz of The Lipschitz, and many other fantastic bands) is releasing his debut album as Bummerville with our dear dear friends GRAVEFACE RECORDS!
We are incredibly thrilled to announce that we will be releasing the debut album from Drew Fitchette this November!
Drew Fitchette is a guitar player based in the Pacific Northwest. As a founding member of Rooftops and Detlef he has always focused on melodic composition bridging complexity with accessibility. Now Fitchette is composing music for solo guitar, drawing inspiration from primitive guitar, classical composition, and math rock. Fitchette has always been fascinated by familiarity and intrigue when it comes to music, and hopes to push his composition to the margins of both.
None, Too Many is a collection of songs composed over the last year informed by various personal and public events. Recorded over two days in Anacortes Washington with help from friends, the hope was to capture a sense of place, time, and those involved.
Various Small Flames describes the first single "Bill" as "much like the forests of the Pacific Northwest themselves, so old and familiar that they conjure a certain nostalgia even in outsiders, yet still possessing some persistent sense of mystery and intrigue, as though within their ancient midst might lie abounding newness."
"The whole thing is wonderfully immersive, however, taking on the form of the rolling train it takes it name from, recalling moments of quiet introspection, face pressed to glass, shapes and landscapes appearing and disappearing, the quietly piercing melancholy of travel and all that it brings." - Tom Johnson, GoldFlakePaint.
Horse Culture have gathered together many a ritual to release their debut full-length House on Furious Hooves this May. The proto-minimal goth rock act founded in Blacksburg, VA in 2015, comprised of Timothy Jacob Hawks, Nika McKagen, and Walter Porter. Through reiterated chords, musical phrases, and warmth in tonality, Horse Culture strives for an emotional resonance in this slow trudge toward death. Luckily for us, they lead an agnostic prayer for our collective suffering.
"House seems able to conjure its own atmospheric patterns, unseen forces called forth from homebrew hexes, leaving the listener dazed and amazed, like a torn page that’s been swirled around and left strewn on the ground." – Liam Doyle, Various Small Flames
You can join the ritual with Horse Culture's debut House on limited edition "smoky haze" Cassette Tape and digital download.
Dæva (pronounced day-va) is the recording project of Gigi Mead, Brooklyn resident who lives with a cat named Aubrey and casts spells, slings books, and writes songs in her spare time. To borrow from Wake The Deaf, "Her debut EP, Beta Persei, is an experimental dream pop project which focuses on the only themes relevant to any experimental dream pop act worth their salt – love, loss and The X-Files."
Rainwater Swimming In Sunlight LP
'Swimming in Sunlight' is the debut release from Rainwater, a project helmed by songwriter Blake Luley. The album is an intimate, personal journey out of the dark wilderness of adolescence and self-loathing into the light of love and acceptance. These gentle, shimmering songs were written and recorded in a variety of places, from bathroom floors to studio spaces, over the course of eight years, charting the ups, downs, and quiet revelations of Luley’s young adulthood in Brooklyn, NY. Available digitally (iTunes, Spotify, etc), on CD (handmade by Pavonine Packaging ltd to 100), on cassette tape (ltd to 100) direct from Furious Hooves.

Temazcal The Future Belongs To Ghosts LP
'The Future Will Belong to Ghosts' is the debut album from Temazcal that works to explore the haunted experience we all seem to be in the midst of, concerned mainly with the idea of simultaneously being and not-being, of existing in-between, being both present and absent. Attempting to evoke both the terrifying and beautiful aspects of contemporary existence, 'The Future Will Belong to Ghosts' looks to inspire a sort of perpetual state of becoming, drawing attention to the in-between nature of our experience. Available digitally (Bandcamp) and on cassette tape (ltd to 50) direct from Furious Hooves.
