Memory Map "Holiday Band"

Featuring members of Good Luck, Kimya Dawson('s band), Push-Pull, and Rapider Than Horsepower, Memory Map specializes in an instinctual blend of indie-math-pop which is no doubt a result of their collective experience... Sprawling chord progressions, driving beats, nerdy prog solos, and addictive melodies all have their rightful place. The album is now available on 180gm red vinyl, 180gm black vinyl, CD, and digital. The band is also currently ON TOUR.

In honor of this amazing release, we are releasing a new single: House Sitting (MP3)


Joan Of Arc "Life Like"

Recorded by Steve Albini, this album rocks - which is to say, it's a complete departure from the esoteric 20 minute soundscapes of the last album "Oh Brother". In contrast "Life Like" is Joan of Arc's most aggressively "rock" album in years - and their first with Cap'n Jazz guitarist/mastermind Victor Villarreal! The amazing Polyvinyl Record Co. is releasing the album on LP & CD - and Joyful Noise has the cassette. The cassette version of the album is limited to just 300 hand-numbered copies, is pressed on high-quality blue cassettes with chrome tape, and comes with MP3 & FLAC download. The band is also currently ON TOUR.
