Proud to announce that we're rereleasing Vagabon's outstanding record, Infinite Worlds, on cassette for the first time on September 27. Pre-orders for the Sonic Green tape are up now, so secure your copy before they're all gone.
The crown toting pop-punk queen is back. Robin Edwards aka Lisa Prank, has returned to the stage with a brand spankin' new single off her upcoming record, Perfect Love Song. "Rodeo" takes us through the stages of a breakup and knowing to not fall for the same mistakes twice. Stereogum calls the lead single "chiming and assured" and that Prank's full band "helps hammer home the song’s catchy resignation." Listen to and read more about the single here, and pre-order Perfect Love Song here.

Celebrate the release of Christelle Bofale's EP, Swim Team, by nabbing a copy on tape or CD today. If you're in Texas, she'll be playing alongside ANIKA at Mohawk in Austin tonight.. just saying. Read what press has said about Swim Team below.
The Congolese American songwriter and guitarist’s debut EP winds in circles, tracing vast spaces that couch thorny emotional quagmires. -Pitchfork
It glides along, guided by watery guitars and a pitter-patter of drums that sound like rain on a windowpane. It shifts from sunshine to twilight and back again. Bofale’s voice lilts into the backdrop, twisting up in it like a spell. It’s impressionistic and warm but steadfastly firm. -Stereogum
"U Ouchea” is a low-key majestic intro to her unique sound, as it softly eases into a relaxed, warmly hypnotic groove, taking its glorious time as it winds and flows like the Colorado river. -Gorilla vs Bear
It flows unpredictably, swirling delicately like the puddles that form along the shoreline, or rushing dangerously from melody to melody like a riptide. Verses and choruses exist, but the boundaries are blurry, and she seems more keen on the swells and emotional moments that come in between established structures. -Noisey
