Trust Fund Ozu – Tribute Summon

Bold, anthemic & controversial, Trust Fund Ozu’s TRIBUTE SUMMON bares her soul as pure hyperpop. Faye Fadem supercharges addictive hooks with ingenious production and lyrics as irreverent as they are personal. Spawning several viral singles such as “Poison Ivy,” “J.K. Rowling Diss Track,” “Peppermint” and “Succubus,” Trust Fund Ozu proves that there is absolutely no-one else like her. Features special guests Ben Levin and Justice Cow, with mixing by Angel Marcloid.

Pre-order now on 3 colored vinyl variants, CD and cassette.

Marc With A C – Thanatophobia

Stream the album on Bandcamp.
Pre-order the vinyl, CD and cassette.

 

Thanatophobia isn’t just a big word, it’s the first Marc With a C album of (mostly) original material for what’s being dubbed “Phase II”; After 21 years of portraying a combustible persona to fit the bizarre, darkly humorous yet emotionally devastating, minutiae-obsessed, lo-fi DIY records that Marc Sirdoreus created to find a way to bring them to the stage, Marc returns for “Phase II” dropping the stage act, keeping the stage name, and being himself on record for the first time.

Thanatophobia sees Marc Sirdoreus, (a genderfluid person compared with the highly male-presenting Marc With a C Phase I persona, and Marc is fine with “he” for pronouns), confronting most of his deepest fears and anxieties head first. For the production, Marc limited himself to only the instruments that he would have owned in December of 1999 if a record were expected within six months, often beginning with melodic ideas from songs that an early producer had forced Marc to remove from the sessions of the earliest Phase I albums. Expect sonic experiments, the prerequisite character studies, brutal truths about the human condition, and plenty of moments when you aren’t sure if you’re supposed to laugh, cry, or both.

The vinyl, CD and digital download will come with a bonus “enhanced” stereo mix to play in sync with Thanatophobia known as Phobophobia, to give a highly immersive view into this sound-world. Catherine Blackard created a potentially groundbreaking piece of visual art for each format that will reveal wholly different cover art depending on the color of the light bulb you have near your player.

Perhaps most surprising of all is Marc’s decision to leave his DIY days in the past, partnering with Needlejuice Records, also reaching an agreement with the label to reissue as much of the ’99-‘21 Phase I Marc With a C catalog on every format possible.

King Gizzard – Live in Brisbane ’21

Oh, we just had to jump on this one. This legendary show brings new acoustic arrangements to Gizz classics. Includes songs not on previous Bootlegger releases, including “Her and I.” According to legend, Stu shit his pants just before this show, and through the power of the Lizard Wizard, his stomach was healed by the acoustics and melodies.

Live in Brisbane ’21 is now available to pre-order on 2 vinyl variants, cassette, and CD.

Additionally, we’re finally doing CDs and tapes of Live at Levitation! It will feature new artwork and will contain both concerts in one package!

Flummox – Rephlummoxed

STREAM THE SINGLES:
CUSTODIAN RALPH
REFLUMMOXING ACT 1: GARBONZO’S LEAP

Nashville’s prog-rock possums are back with the full length LP Rephlummoxed. Flummox made a stir last year with their trans-rights anthem “Trans Girls Need Guns,” which rallies against anti-trans violence, released on the 51st anniversary of the Stonewall Riots.

Continuing in the musical direction of their previous EP In Hindsight, Flummox goes back to the well of their older body of work to craft studio productions of the way the band has taken to the evolution of these songs as they’ve been played over the years. The addition of new soundscapes from keyboardist Jesse Peck, and production by guitarist and producer Chase McCutcheon, elevate the songs to new heights: heavier, darker, and more psychedelic than ever.

The band, formed in a rundown trailer near the garbage dump off an old Tennessean highway, Flummox combines twisted musical-theatre tactics with avant-garde fusion, extreme metal stylings, and strange hooks that are sure to stick with listeners well past their welcome.

OK Glass CDs and Tapes

Stream Sand on Bandcamp
Stream Can’t It Turn It Off on Bandcamp.

Ever wanted to hear the styles of Lemon Demon and Tally Hall combined? That dream comes to fruition with the genius songwriting of OK GLASS. Catchy, funny, and poignant– these two albums are coming to CD and cassette.

SAND (and other mysteries) is one of OK Glass’s most cohesive records yet. OK Glass spent eight years as a guerrilla sneaking into conservatories, churches, and studios to covertly record large and expensive instruments. Now it can be told: SAND comprises 16 byte-size symphonies for embittered punks. No one tells the truth anymore. It’s all sand.

Can’t Turn It Off – originally released in 2018, and back in physical form by popular demand, comprises 13 synth-punk chamber pop songs that act differently when observed. Can’t Turn It Off is an album of love songs to your smartphone, and also a soul-crushing month in uncomfortably close quarters with a friendly sociopath. Can’t Turn It Off is optimistic only about complete unknowns. Can’t Turn It Off is a complex about everything that is trending on Twitter and the heat death of the universe and how to get to the end of the song.

Ookla the Mok VS. EVIL

BACK THIS PROJECT.

This is one of the first projects we ever embarked on, and it’s been in the works for nearly 2 years.

Ookla the Mok’s VS. EVIL is a supervillain-themed concept album centering around the Marvel and DC universes. Ookla the Mok combine their signature comedy music abilities with the emotional narratives behind these fictional characters in a way that we think works super well. While tracks like “Doctor Octopus” and “Kang the Conqueror” are among some of Ookla’s most overtly silly works of music that poke fun at the comics they love, other tracks like “Suprema Lex” and “Amora Adores Thor” bring out Ookla’s passion for the stories that inspire them. To top it all off, the album artwork is done by DC Comics artist Art Baltazar.

We want to bring this album to vinyl for the first time, giving it the gatefold treatment to show off Art Baltazar’s artwork. A brand new piece of artwork will be included inside the gatefold panels. A lyric insert will be included as well. During this Kickstarter campaign, we will be offering two different vinyl color variations of this LP: “Split Personality,” a villainous purple and yellow split vinyl, and “Super Splatter,” a comic book green splatter vinyl. As silly and whimsical as this album is, there is a lot of care and passion put into these songs by Rand and Adam, and they have poured their hearts into these songs. We want the final product to reflect this.

Check out the full album on Spotify.

It doesn’t just stop there, though! When Ookla the Mok released this album, they did so alongside a companion EP called Nerdvana, containing a few outtakes from this era that didn’t fit so much into the “super-villain” theme.  “Welcome to the Con” will make every comic book nerd feel at home, “Math” will teach you in TMBG-esque edutainment fashion, and “Tantric Yoda” might be the one of the silliest songs in the Ooklaverse.

We aim to bring this Nerdvana EP to physical formats for the first time ever! On vinyl, it will be a purple and orange galaxy vinyl, with a lyric insert included. And since it’s never been released on CD before, with this Kickstarter we plan to finally make that happen.

Back this project here.

Evil Star is DONE!

IT’S FINISHED! AT LONG LAST! We just got the shipping notification from the pressing plant. It is therefore safe to say these will begin shipping to customers in about 2 weeks. This box contains all 5 ‘Live 19 releases, and features gold foil stamping on the box.

We pressed 1000 copies of this. There are now less than 300 copies remaining, and this box set will not be repressed. Reserve a copy now.

Now for a full disclosure: You may have noticed the box set is now $50 more than it used to be. When we first released the pre-order, we wanted the box set to be a good deal relative to buying the Live ’19 albums individually. And then, shipping from the pressing plant turned out to be double what we thought it would be. To help with that, we felt we had to bump the price up. Enter another reason we won’t repress this. So, to everyone who pre-ordered, you got what we will now retroactively call the “pre-order discount.” Our apologies.

To help rectify this, we’ve made it so you can still get the albums at the original box set price. The ‘Live 19 Vinyl Bundle is simply the individual Galaxy vinyl editions bundled together at a discount. No fancy box, no wacky Box Set color configurations. Just the LPs in their standard retail Galaxy colors.

You can also get the CDs and cassettes of the albums bundled together via this link too.

Speaking of King Gizzard stuff, Live in Sydney ’21 and Live in Melbourne ’21 are beginning to get low as well. 2000 Melbourne are being pressed, and 1000 Sydney are being pressed, with roughly 200 of each variant left.
