Out June 1: Jordan Kirk “Ragamuffin Parade”
Jordan Kirk’s songs are dark, disjointed and spooky. Ragamuffin Parade is an arrangement of songs, written over the course of many years, that is meant to play as a 24 hour “day in the life” experience with moments ranging from mundane to nightmarish. Pre-order LP, CD or digital download now.
Out Now: Brett Burleson “Songs For My Friends”
CD and digital download. Order at Bandcamp.
Jazz guitarist Brett Burleson took influence from friends and fellow musicians, inspiring the pieces on this record. Some tracks developed from sketches that he recorded with drummer Ryan Jewell (Ryley Walker, Psychedelic Horseshit). The other half of the record features Burleson’s quartet, featuring heavyweights Eddie Bayard on tenor sax and Roger Hines on bass. The result is a record that seamlessly balances traditional jazz structures and experimental melodic instrumentals.

Awards Banquet “If Not Now Then Summer”
If Not Now Then Summer is the debut album from JP Olsen’s band, Awards Banquet. A record of alternately sunlit and seething Olsen originals, it evokes the homemade sonics of Flying Nun, the airiness of Loaded-era Velvet Underground and the driving menace of early Suicide, all the while supporting Olsen’s lyrical wit and memorable, deadpan vocal delivery.
John Stuart Mill “Forget Everything”
First time on vinyl. John Schmersal’s (Crooks on Tape, Vertical Scratchers, Enon, Brainiac) 1999 solo album released under the name John Stuart Mill marries the off-kilter chord progressions and guitar tuning of his work with Brainiac with a subdued lo-fi vibe. Order Now
