Artist: AYE AYE
Title: s/t
Format: LP
Label: Richie/Testostertunes
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"The CV on Aye Aye, the long-rumored self-titled debut by Philadelphias premier desert blues marsupials, runs deep through the beerstrewn underbelly of Philly rock. The Gibbons Bros unmistakable slow-motion, big-chord fuzz will be familiar to anyone whos taken a plunge into the Bardo Pond soundpool over the last few decades, though a cultivated ear will note more grits and butts and less pedalboard worship here. Ben Leapheart retains his very official title of greatest drummer in Philadelphia -- have you shmoes not heard Purling Hiss or Watery Love? -- with his innate understanding that the drums lead, not merely keep time. Yeah, yeah, cool, but what does it sound like? OK bub, how about terrestrial crunching rock drifting over a great expanse? Aye Aye is limited to 300 copies on vinyl and includes a complimentary digital download with purchase." - Richie.
SOLD OUT

Artist: FEEHAN, MARK
Title: MFII
Format: LP
Label: Richie/Testostertunes
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"Mark Feehan is a guitarist. In the 80s he bummed Floridian punks in Broken Talent. In the 90s he strangled strings and blew minds in Harry Pussy. Currently he is in post-no wave noiseniks Taiwan Housing Project. These are mentioned merely as biographical material, as these things -- hell, even Feehans lone solo album (2012s MF on Siltbreeze) -- gives you zero preparation for the sounds lurking inside MF II. This album has moments of surprising acoustic beauty bookended with perplexing electronic sound pools, with buzzing, almost-punk, Germanic vocal narration. It is safe to say this is the weirdest thing ever to appear on this Richie Records. For those who welcome befuddlement and bemusement -- hop on board!" - Richie.

Artist: MORDECAI
Title: Abstract Recipe
Format: LP
Label: Richie/Testostertunes
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"Abstract Recipe is the fourth full-length (the third issued by Richie Records/TestosterTunes) from Mordecai of the great upper plains. Is it punk? Or garage? Post-punk? Indie rock? Blech -- its a no-frills rock album that oughta perk up the ears of those interested in things like thwarted freedom, advanced mathematics, The Blue Mask, bum notes, and staring at the wall. Though the band grows increasingly competent and confident with each release and these precocious mofos possess a flippant world-weariness typically reserved for no-accounts and has-beens at the beginning of their third marriage. Call to mind the moment when one recognizes life for what it is: a low-key drag, but one interesting enough to wake up for each morning. Mordecai huddled up in Montana with an electric guitar, some drums and a bass and they put that moment on a record and this is it." - Richie.

Artist: SPARROW STEEPLE
Title: Steeple Two
Format: LP
Label: Richie/Testostertunes
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"Lightly swirling wah. Is-it-wrong-or-is-it-right leads. Intermittent odd percussion flourishes. Songs about shrimp rolls to go. Loosey goosey warbling atmosphere turned to 10. This is the world of Sparrow Steeple, comprised of almost all of Phillys legendary Strapping Fieldhands fronted by noted visual artist Barry Goldberg. Beginning secretly in the last decade by SF mainman Bob Malloy and drummer Jeff Werner to record Barrys inscrutable songs, the band has now become a legit proposition, minus Bob but with SF guitar and bass Jacy Webster and Bob Dickie, keyboardist Dustin Burrows and record maniac Harmonica Dan. Just as Sir Isaac Newton postulated, the apple doesnt fall far from the tree, and Strapping Fieldhands fans will find familiar footing here. As for strangers to this weird realm, how about a Tommy Jay more enamored with Incredible String Band than with Lou Reed? Confused? We are too." - Richie.
