DOC045bundle3hi

BEHOLD! As of this very moment, Akron/Family’s S/T II: The Cosmic Birth and Journey of Shinju TNT is now available for pre-order HERE.

First and foremost, all pre-orders get an instant download of the record for immediate bliss. On top of that, we’ve thrown in a few limited edition artifacts. We printed a very limited run of Akron/Family silk screen posters as well as Akron/Family flags bearing the Vonnegut inspired chant of “So It Goes” (check out a picture of these above). Our friends at Joyful Noise Recordings also did a limited edition pressing of purple cassette tapes for S/T II: The Cosmic Birth and Journey of Shinju TNT which you can order HERE.

Finally, for those that prefer digital media over physical, S/T II: The Cosmic Birth and Journey of Shinju TNT is available today at iTunesAmazoneMusic and other DSPs.

And if that isn’t exciting enough news itself, we’ve got a new mp3 to share, the opening track from Shinju TNT’s “Silly Bears”!

Nurses Perform Acoustic Versions of New Songs


During Nurses triumphant European tour, they performed at the Into The Great Wide Open Festival in Holland, and while there, they were videotaped by VPRO performing two acoustic versions of new songs. “So Sweet” and “Extra Fast” are the working titles for these songs — hopefully both will be appearing on a soon to be recorded LP. We’re glad the guys didn’t end up sinking into the pond, and cannot wait to hear these new gems recorded.

New Live Tracks From THE DONKEYS

A nice collection of live tracks from THE DONKEYS is now available for download at the website Luxury Wafers. The site is offering seven songs recorded at Chessvolt studios, including the previously unreleased “Hot Sauce” and “New Blue Stockings.” From the fine folks at Luxury Wafers: “The fat collection of live tracks The Donkeys recorded in the studio unbelievably emit the sunshine of an afternoon outdoor concert. When I listen, my skin softens, it’s warm and bright, there’s no place I have to hurry off to, and perfection is in the moment.”

Listen to the songs and see a photo album from the recording session HERE.

NURSES Tour with Le Loup, Preview New Songs and Videos

After holing up for months in their attic apartment to record their new album Apple’s Acre, NURSES are succumbing to the call of the road. Having just completed a U.S. tour with Throw Me The Statue and The Brunettes, Nurses are going back out on the road. They’re flying solo until they hit Baltimore, where they meet up with Le Loup for another lap of these United States. Shortly after they return home to Portland, OR they will perform December 19 on the venerable radio variety show Live Wire, which has alternately been called both Oregon Public Broadcasting’s own version of A Prairie Home Companion, and “the retro-hip kid sister of Saturday Night Live.”

When Nurses were last out in New York, they met up with The Tripwire for a fireside performance, and the debut of a new song “So Sweet”. Playing with stripped down instrumentation, it is a wonderful watch and listen as you see this brand new song spill forth from the collective mind of Nurses. Complete with charming melodic sense, quirky guitar accents, and a simple and unassuming demeanor, this song lives up to it’s name, soooo sweet. Watch the video below, or check out the entire three-song session HERE.
