Yup, Portland's amazing Helvetia have signed with Joyful Noise, and their new album Nothing In Rambling is now available for pre-order on Red Vinyl, Black Vinyl, CD, and Cassette. 

Since their 2006 debut, Helvetia (pronounced "hel-vee-shuh") have explored a myriad of diverse sounds, ranging from 4-track lo-fi indie to surreal, unhinged soundscapes. The group's revolving cast of contributors has at times has included members of Built To Spill and Dinosaur Jr. With their new album, Helvetia's sound has culminated into a cohesive balance of familiar and experimental, producing their most focused and inspired tracks to date.
