While Duster (co-founded by Albertini) dwells in a broken down space station lost to the cosmos, Helvetiaʼs sound is decidedly more earthbound: guitars sparkle and soar beyond their means with hushed vocals transcribing aching personal struggles. This Devastating Map is full of unlikely hooks and odd shapes that desire repeat listening.

Songwriters Sima Cunnningham and Macie Stewart formed their unbreakable bond performing throughout the fringes of Chicago's many interlocking communities, collaborating with titans from the city's indie rock, hip-hop, and improvised worlds. But together, along with drummer Matt Carroll, they've stretched the boundaries of what guitar music can do starting with the band's experimental 2016 self-titled EP and their adventurous debut 2018 LP Parts. Now their longstanding partnership culminates with the stunning and muscular follow-up Fantasize Your Ghost.

Over the past couple of years, Deerhoof has been asking themselves if there was any music they could create that expressed how the rapidly changing future might actually feel. The finished product, Future Teenage Cave Artists, finds Deerhoof in a revolutionary mood, but also haunted by memories of a lost world and every failed attempt to save it.
People already cut loose from the system, already surviving with new ways of life—these hopeful heroes are Deerhoof’s inspiration. These are the Future Teenage Cave Artists.
Available on Blood Red vinyl, CD, cassette, & digital. In stores 6/19!
For those unacquainted, No Joy is Jasamine White-Gluz. She is a strange genius. Her new album, first in 5 years, Motherhood, is a fascinating album that is equal parts shoegaze, trip hop, trance, and nu-metal. Yes, NU-METAL.
Touring as she does with genre-divergent artists such as Quicksand/Baths has further honed No Joy’s multifarious sound.
VIP vinyl is limited to 400 hand-numbered on ‘Moonphase’ Clear & Neon Violet includes lyric/fasion zine signed by Jas herself. Neon Violet vinyl, CD and Digital available right this way...

We are purveyors of interesting media for a variety of artistically-honest, exploratory & often haphazard musicians. We're not your standard noise or experimental label; nor are we interested in typical indie rock or pop. We do however love when these two sides of the spectrum intersect in interesting ways. And we gravitate towards artists who, in one way or another, bridge this gap between pop and noise.
Since our first release in 2003 the label has grown a diverse roster of bands including: Kishi Bashi, WHY?, Sebadoh, Son Lux, Big Business, Joan Of Arc, Half Japanese, Surfer Blood, David Yow, and many others. We have also released a slew of limited specialty releases from bands like Melvins, Dinosaur Jr., of Montreal, Daniel Johnston, Deerhoof, etc.
We are based in the great city of Indianapolis, Indiana.
