Artist: GARBES, RYAN
Title: Sweet Hassle
Format: LP
Label: Hello Sunshine/Woodsist
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"Sweet Hassle is the debut LP from Ryan Garbes (Wet Hair, Raccoo-oo-oon), fresh from his 7-inch on Arbor and his cassette on NNA. "A man in a small college town hours away from the influences that foul a musicians mind, Garbes has a lot of time to hang, especially in the recording studio. On Sweet Hassle, he incorporates heavy Velvets live bootleg vibes straight from the bedroom soundboard, with a touch of melodic electronic drone and a Byrds dusting." -Hello Sunshine/Woodsist “Garbes conjures boggling galactic plinking and trippy interlocking organ tones that make the sound of some sort of benevolent universal energy at work. When the vocals emerge, it becomes an alien hymn, used for space travel through the astral plane, of course.” -Foxy Digitalis

Artist: HERBCRAFT
Title: Ashram To The Stars
Format: LP
Label: Hello Sunshine/Woodsist
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"One of the most gifted abstract sonic pilots from the Vacationland stable, Portland, Maine, artist MATT LAJOIE enjoys a larger-than-Sasquatch reputation for his free folk personality and unpredictable takes on Spectrasound techniques. Although he and his merry band are one of the most charismatic tribes of the New England underground-you gotta see them live-they blossom from psychedelic occurrences that lead to bursts of pacifist oblivion which can only be redeemed inside their studio output. The momentum Lajoie deploys in his polar expressions indicates a supply of time-manipulated balance. An accretion of bucket brigades warping wildly at first breath, generally considered a condition of primitivism, this is searchlight abandonment with purely spirited jams more akin to the tapers pit than slam continuance. In fact, the only thing slammed here (other than the muted poetry echoing like buoys in Golowins harbor) are the in the red meters on fire signs from fire music providing ease with earth, wind and air. Long may we inhale. "This is a heady atmosphere, an atmosphere for heads, and it not only delivers the contempo dreamlike aspect at the apex of its form, but transcends it to those revolving with them. Take this fucker for a spin."-Matt Valentine, Vermont, 2011. "Limited edition of 500 copies. July 2011 US tour dates in the works." -Hello Sunshine/Woodsist

Artist: JOVONTAES
Title: Things Are Different Here
Format: LP
Label: Hello Sunshine/Woodsist
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"JOVANTAES are Lexington, KY. They emerge from (and possibly define) my towns peculiar skate / kraut / nihil / garage axis, evoking the smell of stale Miller High Life and burning couches: stumbling match-grip surf rolls; howling, chorused-out guitar; droning Adderall haze; and a singer who makes Will Shatter sound like Scott Walker. Imagine Moolah playing at a beach party on the edge of the Kentucky River, big gray globs of unidentifiable garbage drifting silently past and the dense wet air becomes gridlocked with mosquitoes."  -Trevor Tremaine (Hair Police) "The current (and longest-running) lineup consists of MARK MURRAY on guitar and electronics, REID SMALL on drums and vocals, and JOSH BLAINE on bass and home modified electronics. Recorded mostly at Smalls Void Skateshop in Lexington, Things Are Different Here is a fresh look at the future of underground improvised music.  Limited to 500 copies." - Hello Sunshine/Woodsist.

Artist: POLYPS
Title: Ants On The Golden Cone
Format: LP
Label: Hello Sunshine/Woodsist
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"RAF SPIELMAN was born and raised on the West Coast. He is active in the fringe music community through his Eggy Records label, and has released music on the Night-People, Digitalis and Not Not Fun labels, among others. A book of Spielmans drawings was recently published by Container Corps Arts Press. Following a handful of cassettes and a 7-inch under the POLYPS moniker, this debut LP was assembled from a year and halfs worth of sound and field recordings and is his most realized statement to date. "Its never right, because it doesnt have everything in it" (de Kooning). "[The Polyps Peixe is a] worthwhile little bedroom pop single.... A-side is some bouncy Elephant 6 type pop with the distortion cranked up; B-side shows a more sensitive, late-night brooding feel to it, with a prominent Xpressway bent-strongly reminiscent of the Jefferies Bros or Pumice. A solid effort from one Raf Spielman and guests, aiming to keep it pure." -Dusted. Limited to 500 copies.
