Artist: CROOK, BRIAN
Title: Bathysphere
Format: LP
Label: Meds
Country: USA
Price: $21.00
"Here we finally have a first time vinyl issue of Bathysphere, the debut solo album by Brian Crook (of such estimable bands as the Renderers, Terminals, Max Block, Scorched Earth Policy, etc). It was originally released on CD in 2000 on the Medication label (no relation). Bathysphere stalks the same haunted terrain as the Renderers but with an even more isolated and experimental feel. Crook expertly uses his accent and voice to tease out the nuance of the weird phrasing, odd timing and lyrics of his tunes. Tom Lax of Siltbreeze called this album Brians Like Flies on Sherbert in reference to the legendarily damaged solo album Alex Chilton recorded after Big Star. Includes guest spots by Robbie Yeats of the Dead C and Peter Stapleton of Dadamah, Pin Group, Terminals, etc. A hand numbered limited edition of 400 copies in beautiful silk screened covers with Meds version of an On the Beach style inner jacket. Not to be missed." -Meds.

Title: Eat Skull
Format: 7"

"No weird America. Three tracks of damaged pop. The raw, menacing Things I Did When I Dyed My Hair, the early-Clean summer vibe of Seeing Things and the Happy Squid tribute - Stuff Reverse. Edition of 300 copies. Recorded on 4-track cassette over old Chinese opera tapes in May of 2007." - Meds.

SOLD OUT

Artist: HOLE CLASS
Title: s/t
Format: LP
Label: Meds
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Mostly recorded on a farm in Ohio in 2006 by Beth Murphy (Times New Viking) & Rob Enbom (Eat Skull). Great pop songs from this duo with a "gothic country" vibe that vaguely calls to mind an interpretation of Nancy & Lee by Neil & Jennifer. There is a stripped down feel and intimacy to everything here. From roadtrip singalongs to true heartbreakers, a perfect album." -Meds.

Artist: HOSPITALS
Title: Hairdryer Peace
Format: CD
Label: Meds
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"Finally available on cd. Ranked 3rd best album of 2008 in The Wire magazine. Intensely psychedelic and mixed for maximum hallucinations, this marks a pretty heavy departure from the Hospitals of old. Heavy tranced out riffs, weird pop, cracked folk, disorienting noise, paranoid vibes...Main Hospital Adam Stonehouse with Rob Enbom & Rod Meyer from Eat Skull and Chris Gunn from The Hunches. The most forward thinking album of 2008 but also an album of songs with actual emotional intensity. Not a party record and definitely not background music. Best listened to loud, alone and with herbal assistance." -Meds.

Artist: LAVENDER FLU, THE
Title: Heavy Air
Format: Double LP
Label: Meds
Country: USA
Price: $28.00
2017 repress. "Heavy Air is a 30 song puzzle / map masterminded by Chris Gunn (The Hunches, Hospitals). Recorded on analog tape machines over a period of years and outside of the genre concentration camps. A home recording project approached completely open to experimentation but in love with songs. Like Terrence Malicks Tree Of Life remade by the ghost of Phillip K. Dick; projecting sounds as images inside your head. Its extremely psychedelic and dense with layers and layers yielding new secrets with each listen. Songs / melodies / lyrics appear and reappear as half remembered dreams or reconstructed memories. Its a circuitous path through pop songs (My Time, Those That Bend - with a Waterloo Sunset vibe), blasted rockers (Fingers Like Wounds), beautiful instrumentals (Feel The Ground, Telepathic Axe), fractured folk (Between The Trees), weirder experimental songs (Vacuum Creature, La-Bas), straight up fried epics (Transcendental Hangover) plus a few covers in the mix including a maximal / minimal take on The Godz mantra-like ode to sun worship and a Townes Van Zandt tune that is derailed by a massive panic attack. Traces of Big Star, Royal Trux, Brian Eno, Meat Puppets II, American Beauty are in the DNA but The Lavender Flu is its own beast. While it is obviously insane to release a double album debut in the current no-attention-span era, it is the only way. Put in the time, you will be rewarded. This is one of those rare double albums that isnt overripe or padded with mediocrity. All killer, no filler! Super dynamic pressing! Completely insane on headphones!" - Meds.

Artist: SUN SUPREME
Title: s/t
Format: LP
Label: Meds
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Recorded in a cloud of smoke in Seattle at the Chummery one night in February of 2004. The players? Your ears should be able to place a few of them. If not, try your third ear mood ring medallion. An after dinner jam with guitar, bass, drum, piano, gamelan, marimba, banjo, cumbus, oscillator and other odd things. Silkscreened covers in a one time edition of 500."-Meds.

If you were going to get a tattoo, would you carve the following initials onto your ass? AB, CG, SS, LT, RW & E? I didnt think so. This LP walks down the same side of the street that Majora used to..." - FE. "Mystery" collab between SCG and CGT. Last copies.

Artist: WHINES, THE
Title: Hell To Play
Format: LP
Label: Meds
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"The Whines transcend the lo-fi tag with real, honest songs that are not hipster genre exercises or an act of desperate trend hopping. Hell To Play is a major leap forward in fidelity and songwriting from their 7". Anchored by Kariannes hypnotic voice and basslines and colored by Jesses raw guitar and Bobbys primitive drumming. Tracks were recorded alternately by Rob & Rod from Eat Skull with 1 track recorded by Kyle from Meth Teeth / Meercaz & 2 tracks recorded by the band. This LP brings to mind things like Neil Young, Thirteenth Floor Elevators, Dead Moon and Cheater Slicks filtered through contemporary ears/minds. Sequenced like a classic album with moody rock songs, melted psych garage tunes & strange, haunting heartbreakers. Play this over and over. You will be rewarded." - Meds.
