Artist: BLANCHE BLANCHE BLANCHE
Title: Wink With Both Eyes
Format: LP
Label: Night People
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"Brattleboro, VT prolific song writing duo BLANCHE BLANCHE BLANCHEs second Night-People release shines even more then their excellent first cassette effort. Wink With Both Eyes is a distinct statement in the contemporary underground music environment. It is a distilled, unified, collection of songs compiled from the hundreds of songs BBB has created in the last couple of years. To add extra flavor to their weirdo synth pop songs on Wink With Both Eyes, BBB enlisted many of their Brattleboro music friends including shredders like KING TUFF, CHRIS WEISMAN and GRAHAM BROOKS. Band members SARAH SMITH and ZACH PHILLIPS didnt use any computers, samplers, drum machines or sequencers when they created Wink With Both Eyes sticking to their own unique processes of song craft. Retained from prior releases is the urgent jazzy retro synth feel, catchy monotone vocals and minimalist post punk references. BBB is a distinct creative team and this LP is there definitive statement thus far." - Night People.

Artist: BROKEN WATER
Title: Whet
Format: LP
Label: Night People
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"This is the debut LP by Olympia Washington three-piece BROKEN WATER. Consisting of former SISTERS (Parts Unknown Records) and CELEBRATION members, Broken Waters sound seems to resound in the rainy coastal woodlands that they are surrounded by. Dense walls of slow swirling distortion breath out into moments of cold syrupy magma and reverb drenched beauty. Droning post punk bass grooves build foundations for constantly evolving guitar riffing and somber vocal passages, a subtle psychedelic sound as heavy as it is lite, as dark as it is colorful, and as deep as it is wide. Broken Waters dreamy take on hazy pastoral sonic exploration is as unique as it is nostalgic and provides endless amounts of killer listening. Silkscreened artwork by SHAWN REED." - Night People.

Artist: ETERNAL TAPESTRY
Title: Declining Star
Format: Cass
Label: Night People
Country: USA
Price: $6.50
"A real beast of a psych rock band, Eternal Tapestry (members of Heavy Winged, JOMF, Tunnels etc) kick it in the red with their melodic instrumental blasts of post PSF atmospheric epics and power trio freak outs. Ultra tight driving propulsive rhythm section work out provide the backdrop for layers of intricate guitar fuzz. Just the right amount of letting it rip and holding it back. Art by SDReed." -Night People

Artist: FEATURELESS GHOST
Title: Personal Matrix
Format: LP
Label: Night People
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"Personality Matrix is the debut LP by Atlanta duo FEATURELESS GHOST following a steady stream of EPs including the recent Mind Body cassette on Night-People. All of those prior releases were great but Featureless Ghost were holding onto something special  that they have now fully materialized in the form of this LP. Pre-release listens of the vinyl had friends of the band and the label awed by the heavy and deep sound of this record, a true stunner that buries the speakers and space around the sound.  A fully realized master work recorded and mastered to perfect specifications; Night-People has never released anything that simply sounds this good. Featureless Ghost set high expectations and surpassed them. Any reference to the aesthetic or influence seems too simple to fully describe what has been accomplished with this release. Synth pop, dark wave, minimal synth,  trance, none of it really matters. This is deep eclectic electronic music performed to live midi, hybrid digital and analog perfection. The dual male/female vocal delivery presented on this record shows a high concern for distinctly developed interplay and identity that is perhaps unequaled in contemporary synth pop. Cyber dreams, lost worlds, and dystopian futures seem to be the subject of Featureless Ghosts expression but the music itself couldnt be more solidly realized and perfected. Night-People is so honored to be a part of this release and we hope you end up enjoying it as much as we do." -Night People.

Artist: FNU RONNIES
Title: s/t
Format: LP
Label: Night People
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"This record has been in the works for a little while now and Night People couldnt be more happy to see it finally out. FNU RONNIES find home turf in both Philly and Oakland and have a previous 7-inch on Richie Records. This one-sided 12-inch contains the same material as the recent cassette/CD on Denmarks Skrot Up label, but is now reissued on vinyl. Deluxe art work by band member JIM VAIL with silkscreening by SHAWN REED. FNU Ronnies are a weird almost indescribable mix of fucked up hardcore propulsion, industrial heaviness, electronics thrashing, and punked out cyborg nihilism. Aesthetic themes elude to psychedelic nightmares, Middle Earth monsters, and generally dark times. Seeing this band live last summer was a revelation into how musical genres could be mutated into something truly unpredictable and inspiring." - Night People

Artist: GARMENT DISTRICT, THE
Title: If You Take Your Magic Slow
Format: LP
Label: Night People
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"If You Take Your Magic Slow is the debut full-length LP from multi-instrumentalist Jennifer Barontis The Garment District, with help from a few friends and family—her cousin Lucy Blehar provides lead vocals throughout. If You Take Your Magic Slow is very much a structured album with its diverse tracklist meticulously strung together. A mix of surreal instrumentals and subtle turns conjures outdoor walks in transitional atmospheres and landscapes, nature hikes in the city, sunny days that are okay with becoming cloudy, warm music full of feeling that remains comfortably easy-going despite the meticulous care given to its sophisticated orchestration and arrangements. This eclecticism creates something complex yet accessible, loose but direct. Baron mixes pastoral psychedelia with arƞul minimalist post-punk experimentation and a subtle approach to library music, soundtracks as “pop,” with just enough droney dreamy color to fill it all in. If You Take Your Magic Slow doesntit follow any templates or gimmicks: its focus is on being true to its musicality, songwriting, and honest approach to compelling contemporary easy listening—something we are quite fond of. A perfect summertime record. If You Take Your Magic Slow follows Barontis first Garment District recordings, Melody Elder, a 2011 cassette on Night-People, and a 7” the following year on La Station Radar (featuring a remix from Sonic Boom). The 10-song LP was recorded both with Greg Matecko at Frankenstein Sound Labs in Hazelwood, PA, and at Jennifertis home in Pittsburgh. It features Lucy Blehar on lead vocals, as well as contributions by her brother Jeff Baron (The Essex Green, The Ladybug Transistor); her husband Greg Langel, Matt Booth (bass); and Chris Parker (drums)." - Night People.

Artist: HOCHMAN & HOPKINS
Title: Live NYE
Format: Cass
Label: Night People
Country: USA
Price: $6.50
"Jonathan Hochman (Holy Balm, Pagan Dawn) and Matthew Hopkins (Naked on the Vague, Near Tapes etc.) are from Sydney AU and this is there live Synthesizer project focused around otherworldly tonal eruptions, trance inducing electronics washes, science fiction fucked vocal sludge, and generally weird psych synth vibes. Lost mind submarine rides, drifting sitting at the point where the desert meets the sky, volcanoes erupting onto cities, all moving along past out of your control in your ears and across your mind. Artwork by SDReed." - Night People.

Artist: KOI POND
Title: Volcano
Format: Cass
Label: Night People
Country: USA
Price: $6.50
"Koi Pond is a three piece from NYC made up of some generally awesome dudes. Arik Roper plays bass and is a legendary artist/illustrator who does work for numerous bands, labels and publications such as Arthur, Southern Lord etc. while also playing in other bands such as Under Satans Sun and Mattalama. Pete Vogal plays synth while also jamming in Bow Ribbons, and designs arwork for clothes, David Aron plays drums, is the perpetrator for Little Cakes Gallery, used to skateboard alot, makes rad visual artwork, and jams in USUN with Mark Borthwick and Hisham Bharoocha. Despite these dudes epic resumes, Koi Pond is epic all on its own. Volcano is all about cosmic grooves, deep often minimal, endless repetitions that slowly evolve into more psyched out blissed out trances. Roper and Arons tight rhythmic foundations create the perfect backdrop for Vogals synth improvisations. This is a meditative listen that never gets old, it just keeps grooving on and on forever. Like Neu covering Dark Magus in a Tibetan Monastery. Artwork by Dave Aron, printing by SDReed." -Night People Tapes

Artist: METH TEETH
Title: s/t
Format: Cass
Label: Night People
Country: USA
Price: $6.50
"This is a re release of Meth Teeths Indian Spirits Demo from last summers nationwide tour. Long time Night-People pals, Meth Teeth reside in Portland OR. and in some ways embody the rainy day big country vibe of the city with its youth culture dreamers, old druggies, and rustic history. There is something that is really hard to pin down about Meth Teeth, the songs rely on simple ramshackle rhythms, upbeat shinny guitar interplay, and big fat chord churners, and alot of tambourine banging away on the snare drum. Ultra catchy summertime rockers keep you sad and lonely, and upbeat and hopeful all at once. LP on Woodsist soon. Artwork by SDReed. ." - Night People

Artist: PEAK TWINS/SCOTT AND CHARLENES WEDDING
Title: Split
Format: LP
Label: Night People
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"Night-People presents a very fine split LP by little known Australian bands, Melbournes PEAK TWINS and SCOTT AND CHARLENES WEDDING, who have recently relocated to NYC. This is a co-release with Aussie label Bed Room Suck our friends out of Brisbane and is the first in a string of co-released splits representing some of Australias best bands highlighting the distinct artistic atmopshere and friendships that have made Australian underground music so vibrant right now. Melbourne duo Peak Twins (who share members with KITCHENS FLOOR, BITCH PREFECT, TERRIBLE TRUTHS, etc.) ride the jams and compose their music with utmost attention to well played pop hooks, somber sublte psychedlics, and a general downer dissposition that never gets to heavy but lets the light shine through onto the 60s psych pop flavored jangle and shamble of their great songs. Scott and Charlenes Wedding (who share members with PANEL OF JUDEGES) have a distinct punky jangly guitar pop aesthetic going that is distinctly Aussie and south hemipshere in its sound. They are good mates with rising indie rockers Twerps and have some shared influences but where Twerps keep it a bit more chill and mopey Scott and Charlenes let the angst and grit stick out more. Perfect tunes for dreamy summertime days." - Night People.

Format: Cass
Label: Night People
Country: USA
Price: $6.50
"Peaking Lights is Aaron and Indra (also of Numbers) from Rah Dunes new duo project recently relocated to rural Wisconsin from the Bay Area. Floating electronic pulses, controlled feedback, tape loops, organ, snyth, guitar, and vocal harmonies layered into waves of four track noise pop goodness. The perfect soundtrack to walking in mysterious places, haunted neighborhoods, lost river banks, and bike rides at night. This release really glows and grows. Silkscreened artwork by SDREED" - Night People

Title: Imaginary Falcons
Format: LP
Label: Night People
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"This is the debut full length LP by Madison Wisconsins Peaking Lights. Members Indra Dunis (Numbers/Rah Dunes) and Aaron Coyes (Rah Dunes) created a stunner thats full of hypnotic analog electronics, pulsing drum sounds, perfectly somber pop layered keys, blown psych guitar, and Indras warm drifting vocals. This record is all its own, everything it needs to be, and it wont disappoint any expectations of its harmony and beauty. Groovy, spacey, heartfelt music for a new age." -Night People

Artist: PEAKING LIGHTS
Title: Space Primitive
Format: LP
Label: Night People
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"PEAKING LIGHTS return with a follow up EP to their excellent Night-People full length Imaginary Falcons and a teaser to lead into their killer next full length album set to drop on Not Not Fun later this winter. Space Primitive was originally released as a limited cassette on Fuck It Tapes but needed a bit more shelf life so Night-People set to work to make this release a reality on vinyl. Aesthetically very similar to Imaginary Falcons, the same haunted low fi electronics surfacing throughout, cascading shimmering layers of guitar, and Indras ethereal vocals moving through the sound like a surfer on a wave. This 12-inch comes on clear one-sided vinyl with a silkscreen on the B side, the best looking one-sided homemade picture disc Night-People has made yet. Artwork by SHAWN REED." - Night People.

Label: Night People
Country: USA
Price: $6.50
"Final installment in the Mythos Fokways series, recorded late summer 07 by Mike Dixon in Chicago, mastered by Pete Swanson, the companion piece to the epic final double LP on NNF/RTB. Dark drifting psych rock, circular and uplifting, guitars weave around atmospheric electronics and R. Garbes signature propulsive drumming. Late dead encrusted shrine rock for the end times. Art by Garbes/Reed." -Night People

Artist: SHEARING PINX
Title: s/t
Format: Cass
Label: Night People
Country: USA
Price: $6.50
"Shearing Pinx are long running Vancouver staples and are one of the bands that seemed to really help solidify that cities underground weirdo music community to an audience outside of its own geography. This new tape in there very prolific discography is tension filled angular noisy post no wave dirge, waves of cascading guitar dread and percussion propulsion, gliding over a subtle underbelly of chimey strum and atmosphere. Technical, tectonic, chaos. Artwork by SDReed." - Night People

Artist: TERROR BIRD
Title: Human Culture
Format: LP
Label: Night People
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"This is the long awaited debut LP from Vancouvers TERROR BIRD, comprised of wife and husband duo NIKKi NEVER and JEREMIAH HAYWOOD. Night-People teamed up with German label Adagio 830 to present this master piece of heartfelt, haunted, ethereal pop music. Nikkis piano and synth arrangements guide her voice full of feeling and beauty through layers of dark ambience that constantly break away into shinny spaces of hopeful abandon. Artwork by SHAWN REED." -Night People

Artist: TYVEK
Title: Blunt Instrumental EP
Format: One Sided 12"
Label: Night People
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
Silkscreened picture disc. "Tyvek dont need much introduction, Detroit area art punk garage rockers, who have a bunch of killer prior material on labels like Siltbreeze, Subpop, MLadys, X, Whats Your Rupture etc. Absolutely killer stuff here on this delux arted out vinyl reissue of a limited tour cassette. Blunt Intsturmental isnt all insturmental but there is a focus on letting the rythms and noise play out a bit. Whats interesting is that while the sound and insturmentation jam out a bit more it feels even more raw and stripped down then the recent full length LP. A sort of step forward into a more groove oreinted, noisy jammy territory while simultaniously returning to the sound of the early singles. A real raw art punk feel like early Swell Maps or The Fall etc. One of the great bands of these times. " - Night People.

Artist: WEIRDING MODULE
Title: TIMEW33D
Format: Cass
Label: Night People
Country: USA
Price: $6.50
"Much in line with the weapon Weirding Module references in its name this cassette TIMEW33D attacks with varying sonic textures and sounds with a specificity that seems quite distinct. As strange as anything Night-People has ever released, this cassette of out world synth pulse, subtle interplays of heavy electronics, and queasy trance oscillations, is as spaced out as it gets. Peel the skin back something else is inside of us, speaking through the mind to the deep lost universe. Artwork by SDReed." - Night People.

Artist: WET HAIR
Title: Irifi
Format: Cass
Label: Night People
Country: USA
Price: $6.50
"Wet Hair is the new solo outing of Raccoo-oo-oon member Shawn Reed. Cult vibe organ drone, slowed down tape hiss percussion warble, and chanted vocal bathed in echo, provide the basics for Irifi, a lone march across a desert, these are droney reverberations tinted with pop influence cloaked in the dark , music for vampires. Recorded by Ryan Garbes for maximal blow out. Expect more from this quickly evolving project soon. Artwork by SDReed." -Night People Tapes

Artist: WET HAIR
Title: s/t
Format: 12"
Label: Night People
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"This is the first solo work of Shawn Reed as Wet Hair, recorded during late fall of 07. On this LP we find Wet Hair discovering its attitude, its approach, its dark underworld aesthetic, of cult zone dub, blasted vocal purge, trance snyth uneasiness. More direct, focused, and eclectic then the Irifi cass. This one burns blown out and electric, amplified to the point of breaking and then subtle and brooding once more. Play it loud. Ultra deluxe silkscreened artwork by SDREED. As much of a visual artifact as a medium of sound." - Night People

Artist: WET HAIR/NAKED ON THE VAGUE
Title: Split
Format: LP
Label: Night People
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"A prime split LP from Iowa Citys WET HAIR and NAKED ON THE VAGUE from Sydney Australia. Both bands have a slew of releases on a host of good labels but this might be the best offering from both yet. The release feels cohesive despite being a split long player with the similarities in aesthetic ideas and sounds of the two groups being taken into consideration. Despite both bands recently taking on new members beyond there duo origins both stick to the duo lineup for this release. Wet Hair is at there most composed taking on more pop sensibilities then prior recordings, focusing on the melodies both vocally and musically but retaining the psychedelic pulse of older material. Naked on the Vague follow with the focus on melody but draw things out as well into instrumental addition and subtraction, letting the effected variety of sound sources battle it out only to decay together in the end." - Night People.

Artist: YVES/SON/ACE
Title: Parade of Thoughts/Cant Sleep
Format: LP
Label: Night People
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"Yves/Son/Ace is a solo outlet from the Factums/Love Tan camp out of Seattle. Less an experiment in synth noise and drone then the"Cold Showers" Night-People cassette, Parade of Thoughts/Cant Sleep evokes a sort of deconstructed synth pop aesthetic. Druggy, hushed vocals float over vintage rhythm machines, synth noise goop, and lost world music radio tones. Minimal, isolated, deranged, and savage, Yves/Son/Ace is junk pop music for a disconnected world full of detritus and longing. A subtle sound that grows in your skull like fungus on rotting wood." - Night People.
