One Week Left to Support Don Giovanni on Kickstarter

In case it slipped by you, for the last several weeks we’ve been running a Kickstarter campaign to help grow the label. Now that we’re down to the last seven days, we’ll be adding a few new rewards to help push this thing across the finish line. First up: we’ve added a few copies of Screaming Females’ “Shake it Off” / “If it Makes You Happy” 7″. This limited edition single was originally offered as a bonus item included with early pre-orders and deluxe edition copies of All At Once. We’ve found a handful of extra copies, though, which we’re making available as part of the campaign.
A reminder: This is not a save-the-label type fundraiser. Times are always tight, but we’re not hurting (at least, not more than usual). Rather, our goal is to use this fundraiser to create financial breathing room for the label. The resources we gather here will allow us to more quickly pay down our existing debt, which will allow us to put more projects into production, which will mean that more records come out more quickly. In other words, it will help us to step on the gas.



New Releases Out Now and Available For Pre-order

Bad Moves – Tell No One 

Out September 21st, Tell No One is the debut full-length by Washington, D.C.’s Bad Moves, recorded at Philadelphia’s Headroom Studio by Joe Reinhart (Hop Along). Sharpening the themes of the band’s 2016 self-titled EP, Tell No One is a power pop album whose 12 songs balance brashness and vulnerability, volume and tenderness. Collectively, the songs tell a story about self-discovery in childhood: exploring how intense emotional moments often arrive before we’re old enough to understand them, and how those regrets and revelations ripple into adult life.

HPRIZM – Catching a Body 

Out last Friday as a surprise release, Catching a Body features nine  instrumental tracks by New York City-based composer, producer, and performer Hprizm (aka High Priest, aka Kyle Austin). The EP is both a prelude to a forthcoming full length and place of sonic refuge.  “It’s a score to a movie in my head,” explains Austin. “It was composed as a protection spell and safe space that you can retreat into to recharge during these challenging times.”

A founding member of Antipop Consortium, Hprizm has spent his career testing the boundaries of hip-hop, collaborating alongside a diverse cast of musicians, including Wadada Leo Smith, Matthew Shipp, and Vijay Iyer.

Izzy True – Sad Bad 

SadBad is the second full-length by Izzy True. It’s a record about death and getting dumped at the end of the world. The songs were mostly written in Chicago in an apartment on the 11th floor of a tall building that would eventually turn out to have bedbugs and to which True can no longer return because it is no longer rented by people they love. That music was then carried back to upstate New York where it was subjected to TOTAL INSTRUMENTATION courtesy of the True’s dear friends and collaborators, Angela Devivo and Kyra Skye. The is available now digitally and also as a pack of stickers (designed by True) with a complimentary download code. Bless this mess.
