The S/T EP from The Half Hearts is out today!  4 power pop punk nuggets by this new Denver duo have been pressed onto purple cassettes and downloads are of course included.  Guitar, drums, voice.  No fuss, no muss.  The Half Hearts just added a bass player so this release will be the only recorded document of the band in it's primal, energetic infancy.  One thing is for sure- whether a duo, trio or more... The Half Hearts are a force to be reckoned with!  Order the cassette from our web store HERE.  You can also grab it off our bandcamp HERE.  Denver record shops will be stocked and Recess Ops will distribute beyond that as they so expertly do.  You can also find this release on all your favorite streamy downloady spots.  Tune in and turn up!  Pressing Info: 100 purple cassette tapes, download code included.

Dust Heart Returns Fully Refreshed!

Dust Heart (formerly known as Andy Thomas' Dust Heart) is fully refreshed and set to release a new record!  It's been 2 years since the full Dust Heart band has released any material or played any shows.  Coming out of the break, Andy decided to drop his name from the moniker and opt for a more cohesive full band approach as well as a fresh power pop oriented sound.  The strength of this move will be on full display on a new stereo lathe cut 7" titled "The Last Gap + Plastic Walls" that comes out on 6/21/19.  You can hear 'The Last Gap' on our bandcamp sampler right now and pre-order the record from our web store HERE.  The band will be playing a release show at The Oriental Theater in Denver on 6/21 as part of the Punk Is Dad Dorian De Long Arts & Music benefit. More details to come!

New Threads & Stuff!

We just posted a bunch of new apparel and merchandise in our web store!  New SLN shirts, hats and totes plus new SPELLS shirts, hats and koozies.  Check out our New Arrivals & Coming Soon section to have a look.  Our partner operation, Indie Rock Daydream, is responsible for screenprinting the hot new styles.  You'll also see our latest releases as well as some Super Saver packs we put together (lotsa recordings for not lotsa $) while perusing the New Arrivals & Coming Soon section.  While browsing the rest of our web store, the discerning shopper might notice some of our older apparel and recordings are priced to move (those items are almost gone, like, forever).  Gotta make room for all the new!  Thanks for the continued support!

Charlie Continental Jangles A New Jingle!

Charlie Continental is back at it with the jingles!  Werewolf Radar is a spooooky podcast that asked him to write them a tune for their relaunch which is slated for 5/27/19 and he was happy to oblige.  It's called "Come Howl With Us" and there are 2 versions, a full and an edit.  You can hear both and send a tip (if ya wanna, don't gotta!) on our bandcamp page HERE.  We'll figure out some sort of physical release at some point too.  Thanks for listening!
