The first proper LP by Yalls, titled United, will drop on May 6th.  It is being released as a limited 12” on clear vinyl + digitally.  Pre-order yours now.
Over the past few years, Berkeley-based songwriter/producer Dan Casey (better known as Yalls) has issued everything from sun-kissed synth-pop to quirky hip-hop instrumentals, glitched excursions of post-aughts soul, to tropical-tinged, vocal-led boom-bap. He has regularly delivered immersive one-offs, inventive remixes, and guitar based works under his own name, Casey has built a reputation as a producer who may be hard to pin down in exact terms, but is always reliable for delivering delicious hooks and poignant melodies.
 United, the first proper full-length album by Yalls, is a cohesive amalgamation of the sound Casey has been exploring. It combines elements of mid-60’s funk, modern experimental beatmaking, and pop music - firmly placing the listener in a unique space somewhere between defunct dance halls and outer space.

Finally, we’re able to announce a new LP by Meanest Man Contest!  Everything worth mentioning drops on 10/29 as a limited pressing of 250 12” records on white vinyl.  Pre-order it here!
"Merit, the 2003 debut from California duo Meanest Man Contest, remains an underrated collection of DJ Shadow-indebted instrumental hip-hop that contains a seductive darkness inside its psychedelic tapestries. A decade later, Noah Blumberg and Eric Steuer are back with Everything Worth Mentioning, out October 29th via Gold Robot, and those familiar with Merit might be thrown for a loop by the first single, “In the Dark”, which is more tear-stained electro-pop than anything that approaches good ol’ boom-bap— but it still retains the DIY bedroom charm of their older material. “Do you ever think of me in the dark?”, dolorous vocals ask as they’re stretched across a woozy bed of synths; elsewhere, guitars shimmer like rays of mid-morning light, giving our first taste from Meanest Man Contest’s return a bittersweet flavor.” - Pitchfork

Our good friend Dan Casey (aka Yalls) recently re-named his solo guitar-centric project and announced the debut album Empty City.  The record will drop in October on the very excellent Ceremony Recordings.  In addition to premiering the lead single on NPR’s All Songs Considered, he also spoke with IMPOSE about the project.  We have all heard bits and pieces of demos over the past year, but let me promise you that this is an album you won’t want to miss.
