Vertical Twin - self titled EP

Vertical Twin - self titled EP

This is Vertical Twin's debut release. A dynamic three piece from Providence, RI with a rock/punk & blues mix. No talking, no tuning, just heads-down non-nonsense-mindless boogie at 90MPH. Think fast cars, faster women, and giving the finger to your boss. Their song cloud drips motorcycles, mental illness & sex. You can download the track POS Jones. Digital downloads are available here or you can purchase a copy at the label website.
The Birkitt Transmissions - Cut in 3

The Cut in 3 EP is the Birkitt Transmissions' first release. Husband/Wife duo Doug (guitar/vocals) & Aileen Birkitt (drums) play simple, loud, melodic guitar rock. Is it punk? Well.... sure, if you'd like it to be. Whatever gets you through the night. It's rock, yo. Please check it out for yourself. That would make the Birkitt Transmissions purr like a kitten. You can download the track Pretty Nonsense and purchase a copy at the label webpage.

Eastern Phoebes - Wampum

Eastern Phoebes - Wampum (self released)

On the Elephant 6 (by way of Rhode Island's southern shores) scale, this is closest to the pre-electronica, whimsical pop-era Of Montreal, right down to the tweaked high pitched vocals, but with the advantage of modern technology, resulting in better recording quality than their predecessors. Throughout, there is an emphasis on piano and other key-based instruments dripping delightful melodies all over the pop perfection, with some well placed swear words to snap you out of the giddiness of it all. On top of everything else, you can download this album for free.

Al Lover - Psychedelic Reinterpretations of Contemporary Rock 'n Roll (Reflective Flesh)

If being hip enough to like anything with the word 'remixes' in the title is on your bucket list, here's your chance to cross that off and still maintain your rock cred. Removing most vocals and leaving only heavy riffs and primitive beats, Al Lover has created something very similar to Dub Narcotic Sound System or Jon Spencer's Xtra Acme Remixes or the Experimental Remixes EP. Amazing songs by Moonhearts, Thee Oh Sees, Ty Segall, Jeff the Brotherhood, Night Beats and others, 30 minutes in total. This is a completely free download.
