mp3 :: Rodan > Darjeeling

Thursday, April 25th, 2013

Emerging from the same Louisville post-hardcore scene that spawned Squirrel Bait and Slint, Rodan reportedly formed in 1992 out of a failed high school rap project. The band maintained a serious cult following over the years and now fans of their only LP, Rusty, should get excited.

On June 11th, Quarterstick Records will release Fifteen Quiet Years, a collection of Rodan recordings including a 1994 BBC Peel session together with out-of-print 7 Inch and compilation tracks.

Back in 2009, Jeff Mueller and Jason Noble of Rodan remastered the tracks with help from Bob Weston (of Volcano Suns and Shellac) at his Chicago Mastering Service. Here is a track off the Inclined Plane 7 Inch.


Downloadable: Darjeeling (mp3)

Fifteen Quiet Years will be available for purchase @ All formats of the album will include a digital download of 10 bonus live recordings.

mp3 :: The Shellac Mixtape

Monday, September 6th, 2010

As the (sold out) Shellac show at The Bell House is rapidly approaching, I put together this little mixtape of Shellac songs to get you all excited. This right here is kind of like a Shellac for Dummies or something like that. Listen.


Wingwalker (mp3) from Uranus

Rambler Song (mp3) from The Rude Gesture: A Political History

Song Of The Minerals (mp3) from At Action Park

Copper (mp3) from Terraform

Watch Song (mp3) from 1000 Hurts

The End of Radio (mp3) from the band’s 2004 Peel Session

Steady As She Goes (mp3) from Excellent Italian Greyhound

And remember, while the digital versions of these songs are great and all, you should probably track down and purchase the analog versions as well.

mp3 :: Antimagic > Never Learn Not To Run

Thursday, August 19th, 2010

So Antimagic‘s album, Trash Symmetry came out way back in October of 2009. That doesn’t mean you should not run to their bandcamp page and buy it right now. The band taps a similar yet slightly less chaotic vein as other practitioners of the art of Anti-Magic. This track clocks in at Shellac-ian 8 minutes and 36 seconds. Listen.

Downloadable: Never Learn Not To Run (mp3)

You can (and let’s face it, should) purchase Trash Symmetry @ the Antimagic bandcamp.

The band also has a newish live tape called Live Trash. Stream it below:
