Boduf Songs - Burnt Up On Re-Entry CD or LP

An infinite space where dark psychedelics are crafted using a combination of raw electronics, manipulated samples and heavy rock guitar. The song craft remains centered around a heavy melodic and melancholic core, which has been prevalent across the entire Boduf Songs canon.

Syl Johnson - Dresses Too Short and Is It Because I'm Black LP reissues 

Released in the summer of '69, Syl's first full-length (Dresses Too Short) outing compiles the fruits of his late '60s Twinight sides. Included are the seminal, and often sampled, hits "Come On Sock It To Me" and "Different Strokes". The perfect entry point to explore this soul titan's most productive years.

Coming hot on the heels of his first full-length, the self-proclaimed "most sampled artist of all time," released this groundbreaking black concept album (Is It Because I'm Black). Throwing away the notion of a sophomore jinx, Syl delivered this politically charged document.

Mount Moriah - Miracle Temple CD or LP

Heather McEntire (of post-punk veterans BELLAFEA) and Jenks Miller (of heavy-psych/metal outfit HORSEBACK) use this project as an outlet for their mutual interest in classic American folk and rock music. With nods to both classic folk-rock (Neil Young, Emmylou Harris) and their contemporaries (My Morning Jacket, Fleet Foxes), they challenge existing traditional folk music forms w/ arrangements born from Miller's interest in minimalism and sound texture. Their 2nd full length, sports bigger arrangements, louder guitars, bolder vocals, and more soulful rhythms than their acclaimed S/T debut.
