Yumi Zouma x Gorilla vs. Bear takeover: Bird Nest Roys


I've been lucky enough to work with Flying Nun the last 3 years re-issuing a lot of their back catalog. I'm the first to admit that I'm not so well versed with the obscure parts of the catalog. Bird Nest Roys' 'Me Want Me Need Me Get' is a great compilation we did of the band's early works...

mp3: Blouse – “Firestarter”


Here's a new track from Portland's Blouse, who are now 3-for-3 at this point: "Firestarter" is a hazy dream-pop gem that manages to be bright, buoyant, and engaging while still maintaining the same air of detached cool the group displayed on vaguely goth-y a-side "Into Black...
