The extra-prolific Yalls recently dropped his latest collection of jams, titled Yalls II, as an appropriate (and linear) follow-up to Yalls I. You’ve probably heard most of the tracks previously, but it’s nice to have them all in one place. Additionally, he has included songs from this alter-ego project Daniel Sex Jr in the compilation as a nice surprise. Do yourself a favor and download the full thing through his bandcamp page.
We’ve got some copies left of the excellent Fantasy 7” as well for you vinyl lovers.
Monster Rally’s upcoming 12” titled Beyond the Sea is now available for digital download in advance of the limited edition vinyl release. You can download the album through iTunes or Bandcamp. Pre-order the beautiful gatefold 12” pressed on lava red vinyl as well before it’s sold out.
Beyond the Sea is the second full length album from Monster Rally. The records sampled to create this album were dug from cities across the country and have been thrown through the lens of Monster Rally’s lo-fi production. The resulting album builds upon the skeleton of 2011’s Coral, adding muscle and structure in interesting places, to create a 42 minute song-cycle and continue Monster Rally’s exploration of sonic collage.
Our main man Yalls recently dropped a new track over on GOOD as part of their Sounds GOOD series where artists donate songs to the project and net proceeds are donated to charity. The artist describes the track as “a continuation of my recent exploration of dark vibes, vocal sampling, and buttery synths”. Download the track and support a great cause.
The debut LP from Roman Ruins titled Homebuilding comes out on February 28th, but we’ve decided to release the digital version ahead of the limited edition vinyl. You can stream/download the full album at Bandcamp or (iTunes/etc).
Pre-order the 12” now and receive a bonus 7” plus an instant download of the album. It’s limited to 250 copies on translucent milky white vinyl (as seen above).

Feeling all nostalgic today about our first release, a 2-song 7” by Roman Ruins. This artist, and these tracks in particular, were the seed behind the record label back in 2007. The design on the inner labels is still one of favorites.
At last count, we’ve just got a few of these left which you can get here. Anyone who orders it today will get a special surprise in the shipment.
