Hey, everyone! We had a nice relaxing week, how about you? We'd like to thank all of the writers and performers, and of course, the audience who came out for Scriptreaders on Sunday. That was the last installment for now, but we're working on bringing it back. Stay tuned! 

Not much happening here event-wise this week, but we've got some awesome new releases coming out and we're always looking for new stuff. What are you listening to!?

Later in the month we have another Off The Record listening party. This time we've got JC Brooks and The Uptown Sound performing songs from their new record Howl! They'll do an on-stage Q&A with Marty Lennartz from XRT and a DJ set to close out the night. Off The Record is a FREE and BYOB monthly event!

After that we have another Creative Control with Joe McAdam and our third Revolutions Per Minute live podcast with Joe McAdam and Nick Rouley! We'll update you all with more info on the comics and guests for those very soon! In the meantime, check out past episodes of RPM (including our two live episodes) here!

Artist / Title: Blank Tapes / Vacation
Label: Antenna Farm
Format: CD
Catalog Number: antf543cd
Release Date: May 14, 2013STREET DATE 5/14. Blank Tapes is now & has always been MATT ADAMS, a soft-spoken kid from a Southern California suburb who learned to play practically every instrument a good garage band needs, & then started making beautifully idiosyncratic records on his trusty home eight-track. This is the first album not recorded in Adam's home. Full of the kind of three-part harmonies the Wilson Brothers used to love, this record has songs that transplant the style & sentiment of immortals like Ray Davies & Robyn Hitchcock, Kris Kristofferson & Lou Reed, into modern garage pop
